It’s kind of funny that we say “Happy Halloween” isn’t it? When it is supposed to be a spooky, fright-inducing holiday?
(File that under: Random Thoughts by Sizzle Says.)
Friday my work had a party/costume contest. I was a real hard ass on my department about our group costume. I wanted to win! My initial suggestion of being SNL characters was shot down in a vote. Boo! I really, really wanted to be Linda Richman. Can you just see me pulling my coworkers into my cubicle pretending we were on “Coffee Talk”? What a hoot. Plus I’d get to say things like “I’m getting verklempt!” and “Talk amongst yourselves!” Or I could have been Pat. I could have made so many people uncomfortable with my questionable gender and that odd noise s/he would make.
But instead, the majority went for donuts. Yes, we all dressed up as donuts. See:
I’m a Feather Boa donut- my favorite donut at a local donut shop. It’s coconut!
We did not, however, win the contest. But these guys did:
How awesome is that? I bow my creative hat to them.
As you can imagine, being a donut is not really conducive to a desk job. Though I did discover that it’s convenient for resting your camera or a plate of food on it. I had to tip sideways to get through some doorways. And the pink paint I used to spray paint my inner tube/donut never completely dried so that white shirt is now garbage. So today I decided to wear something easier to work in. You know, type on my computer, answer the phone and attend meetings in. So on Saturday I opted for an easier costume when I happened upon this mumu-esque dress at the thrift store.
Now if only Mr. Darcy would dress up as Stanley, we’d have it made.
P.S. This mumu is comfortable. Like, really.
What are you dressing up as?
