Happy Hallow’en! As you can see, my co-worker and I were festive enough to wear our costumes to work. If you can’t tell, I’m Samara from Ringu. Unfortunately, it seems that no one in the office besides us has seen Ringu, but apparently they still thought the costume was creepy. He’s a person who doesn’t respect tyrannical (or other) copyright law.
To celebrate Hallowe’en, I baked some Soul Cakes last night (my most ambitious baking project to date!). I think they came out rather well, though of course I’ve no basis for comparison.
I brought about half of them into work today, where they were quickly housed (meaning, I guess, that others liked them as well), hence the lack of pictures. In compensation, here’s a picture of the plaque I made to let everyone in the office know the history and ingredients.
As an aside, it’s not common practice to let everyone know what the ingredients are in the food you bring to work; as a person with food allergies, I find this both annoying and threatening. Hence, I hope to set a good example with my own work offerings to change this.
Back on topic, the other half of the Soul Cakes are coming with me to Syracuse tonight, for the big Nekropolis Hallowe’en party:
Speaking of parties, my annual shindig was this past weekend. People have yet again informed me that it was a grand success, but they always seem to say that. Either I throw a great party (well, there was absinthe!) or they don’t go to many parties, I think.
