A picture-heavy post. It was a pretty good workplace Hallowe'en.

My office-mate* does not like creepy contact lenses. At all. He didn't know this picture was being taken; I wish actually we had a picture of a few seconds later, when he turned around. That was funny. I was Zombie Jane Austen, by the way, and I owe Cenobyte bigtime for showing me how damn awesome creepy contact lenses can be. Totally worth it.

And there were punkins:

My favourites were the Borg punkin (Cucurbita of Borg!), the skelly-punkin, and the Rorschach punkin. The Borg punkin actually had a little light-and-fog show that was pretty awesome.

* He is a Talented UI Artist, so he is sensitive. This is him, drawring.

    It really takes very little to make you spooky... This is a compliment. :)

    I remember asking you once why you didn't wear contacts, and you said you just couldn't... So what changed for creepy contacts?

    Thanks for the compliments, everyone!

    @Terry: I find contacts quite uncomfortable, plus I was sensitive to a preservative that they used to put in contact solution, plus my particular prescription means very expensive contacts. I can put up with the discomfort for eight hours or so, the solution is a different formula now, and effects contacts aren't prescription.
