She dresses in black

Let's consider this my Halloween post, since I don't think I'll be blogging tomorrow - too many plans! I got an email from my office building stating that there's a building wide Halloween party with prizes for costumes. Talking with one of the paralegals today we both laughed at what the boss would say if we showed up in costume. Instead, I'll wear black. Both in honor of the holiday and to mourn the fact that I can't dress up for work anymore.

Don't worry, I'll be dressing up plenty tomorrow night to make up for it. So let's have a super creepy meal in honor of Halloween. Did you ever play that game where you close your eyes and pass around bowls of "organs"? Eyes, brains, heart.....maybe that was just my family. Anyway here's a bowl of brains and hair, all covered in blood. (Or for the squeamish, pasta and meatballs in marinara sauce)

  6. I never played the organ game. And I'm the only one in my office today so no one to dress up for. I'm a Halloween flop I guess. ;)
