    No plans for me or the missus either. Well, I will continue the annual tradition of watching It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.


    Wow... I don't think I have seen that in decades now. I certainly miss the fun that is Halloween. It seems like each year it arrives faster than the last and there's just never any time to do any preparation for it any more.

    "I got a rock!" Cry

    Cheers,
    Louis

    If I don't need to go to the office tomorrow evening, I'll probably shoot the parade.

    I thought I would revive this thread since it is that time of the year again...

    Does anyone have any plans for Halloween this year? None here, I am sorry to say.


    Cheers,
    Louis


    Not plans as such - just bought a whole load of sweets - that's candy to our American friends (at least from an American firm - Woolworths Big Grin )

    Now my daughter - who by the way is now 21 - will be hoping I don't have too many callers!

    I'll get into trouble for posting this but here goes:-

    Yeah, go to work, and, um...uh...hmm.

    I may be wiping eggs off of my car the next morning, though.

    Man, this was a lot more fun as a kid. At least I could dress up without people looking at me weirdly. (Now, they just look at me weirdly. So, maybe I should dress up. What have I got to lose?)

    At work today we received a note from HR stating that costumes at work are inappropriate and that wearing something not in the dress code on 10/31 could result in disciplinary actions... sigh. Not that I planned on dressing up, but we were planning to do some cubicle trick or treating, which also received the kibosh in the note.

    I love working in corporate America.

    That's the best thing about Halloween... it gives you a free license to dress up any way you like and no one gives you a second look.

    If I had something prepared, I would do something for Halloween... Instead I am just moving out of my current office into a much smaller one at work that day. It is so small that I think my desk will fit in there... barely. That is what I am doing for Halloween. Trick or treat? Hmmm...

    Cheers,
    Louis

    That's understandable, you work for the police department! You can't have law enforcement officers dressed up like bears and mummies, now can you? Wink Laughing Out Loud -- OK, I am only kidding. I have no idea what you do for a living... but I just enjoyed the visual image of cops dressed up in Halloween costumes while on duty.

    Most of corporate America needs to get their collective heads out of their arses... But that is another rant for another day.

    Cheers,
    Louis

    We had our office Halloween party today at Turbine, and we had some very inventive costumes.

    The best was Doctor Octopus. One of our guys dressed up in blue mechanic's overalls, slicked his hair and had the right glasses. Strapped to his back were silver flexible furnace piping forming four of Octopus's mechanical arms. Two were strung up over his shoulders, and the other two went down to his legs and formed 2-foot stilts. He was walking on his mechanical arms. It was awesome!

    We also had some great other costumes, one that amused me was a guy in a Banana costume with the V For Vendetta mask. He said he was "B for Banana". Very funny.

    There were other great costumes, one guy had a large P4 on his chest, and white socks and red shoes. For those who don't use Perforce, it's a software versioning program, and its Wait Cursor is a red P4 with red shoes on, constantly walking...

    Great stuff.

    Sean.

    One solid hope is worth a cartload of uncertainties.

    the doc oc costume sounds fantastic. Did you take pictures? I'm guessing he didn't have his top buttons undone showing his chest, a la Spider-Man 2.

    I work for a "branch" of the Federal Government (of the USA) and we're being encouraged to dress up (to the tune of a $75 prize for best constume)

    My costume will hopefully---EXTERMINATE the compitition. I just need to figure out how to actually WORK with it on.
