Happy Halloween! We’re in full swing of party preparations here…
Month: October 2009 (page 1 of 6)
That bounty hunter is my kind of scum!
The Snook and I both discovered rather last minute that some folks in our respective offices would be dressing up for Halloween. I quickly laid claim to the Snook’s Boba Fett helmet. As I was getting dressed this morning, I lamented that I didn’t have a blaster. “Yes you do!” Snookums said. “Your stepmom got you one for Christmas years ago. It’s still in the package!” And so it was! Frickin’ awesome. I brought along a bunch of stuff to decorate my desk and cracked open a bag of candy corn for my co-workers. (The Snook went as Indiana Jones, but I haven’t gotten a picture yet.)
And no, these aren’t our official costumes for the party tomorrow… You’ll have to wait another day!
Whoa! These turned out so good. You’ll recall that in previous years I made Buck Eye Balls, which were peanut butter balls dipped in white chocolate. This year I decided to take a page from Carbolicious Cakes (my sister’s company) and try my hand at the ubiquitous cake balls. They turned out so well! One of them fell into the chocolate completely, so we got to taste it. Eileen immediately pronounced them “so delicious!” Now we just have to NOT EAT THEM before the party.
My 461 bus unexpectedly terminated at Town Hall this morning because of “an accident.” I grumbled my way up Park Street towards work expecting to see some minor fender bender. Instead… taxi SMASH! Whoa! The engine block was actually sitting on the sidewalk! It was nuts. It’s a good thing it happened so early in the morning; from 8am onwards there would’ve been loads of pedestrians waiting on that corner to cross the street.
