Remember how I mentioned the "Superman" song last post?
Right, well, seeing as I am superhuman, in my head, along with everything else going on...I volunteered to help out with the pumpkin carving contest at work. I was in charge of the tombstones:
Do click for big, we went all out with the details. We were so very proud! We were so very current! We were so very "scary" (to the accounting department at any rate). We were so very not the winners...
See, I don't want to seem all stereotypical about the groups of people who entered the contest...but I gotta be honest...our group is very creative, but cheap. I know, I know, we're the people that pay the bills and reconcile trips and make sure that you are not spending the company's money in errant ways...duh, it makes sense that we didn't go out and buy or use the embellishments that the winner's did...did I mention cheap? But it was fun. It is really cool how into it all the groups got. I do not begrudge the winners at all. I mean, it's not like we were in last place or anything.
Though I'd have had some words if this one had won:
I didn't get a picture of the winning pumpkin...by the time I had a free moment AND the camera in hand they'd already moved it off to the Halloween party location...which I skipped as I was ready to drop by 5 PM.
Bring on the weekend....
