The Firm has a nice Halloween tradition where employees bring their kids to the office for trick-or-treating. Even the younger kids seem nervous about walking into lawyers' offices asking for candy, but after some prodding from their parents they generally play ball. There's also a big Halloween party, with a magic show for the kids, booze for the grown-ups, food for days, and a costume contest. My costume this year, "Lazy Person," didn't win any prizes but was met with reactions from my co-workers that were more or less polarized between "awesome" and "totally weak." I'll post a picture of it at some point and let you be the judge.
In the mean time, here's what I came home to this evening -- the lovely candlework of Dr. M:
And here are the pumpkins from the previous post, carved with a little help from a 5.2 earthquake. My structurally unsound creation is on the right, and Dr. M's fantastically creative cat-o-lantern is on the left.
I hope those of you braving the Castro make it out of there with all of your vital organs intact, and post pictures for us stay-at-home L7s to gawk at and be envious of.
