Okay, I have several pictures from the Halloween Party last night, but first I'd like to make two observations of parties in general:
1)Drinking games are really, really boring if you are not drinking.
2)The guy who thinks he's hysterically funny, isn't. He's usually an obnoxious douche bag.
I did have fun, despite not staying very long and not drinking, I met several nice people, and I actually TALKED to them! Funny thing is, I mostly talked to a gal named Tara (another PIRATE, w00t!) about meeting people on the internet who are NOT creeps. I told her that I've met the most wonderful people online, that I feel I've found my tribe, and she just looked at me with incomprehension. She's just had bad luck, I believe.
I also saw the most incredible, clever costumes. Two young men came as Mormon missionaries, complete with bike helmets and backpacks. One of them was artfully made up to look like he'd either been in a wreck, or been beaten up. Even his shirt was torn, soiled, and bloody.
Then we had zombie Marilyn Monroe, accompanied by zombie Gilligan and zombie Skipper. Too funny! The guys were draped in seaweed, and had seashells and starfish glued to their shirts and pants. I loled!
We had three lady pirates, including myself.
Anyway, on to the pictures!
Our hostess with the mostest: Crystal
The Grim Reaper, and his flapper lady (Pete and Maura)
My direct supervisor, Joy, as Athena (though she should have gone with an owl, not an asp...)
Gladiatrix Marisol, with Crystal and Maura.
Crystal with Tara, one of the other pirate ladies.
So, I left the party at around 10 PM, because I knew I had to get up early today. Plus, the hardcore drinking had begun, and I was feeling a bit uncomfortable.
Now I need to start planning what to wear/what I'll be NEXT Halloween! I LOVE dressing up in costume. :D
