A ghoulishly good time

One of the many perks to working around here (along with the fun of making great classroom tools) is the annual Halloween party. Last year, members of the Teacher's Brunch staff actually did all the planning. They were happy this year to let Lauren and Katie from the Foreign Language building throw the shindig, and this year's party planners did a fabulously awesome job.

Among the festivities were a pumpkin carving contest and a costume contest. As you might expect, we have some immensely creative and talented people around here.

See for yourself:

Caryn in FL made this wonderful piece. We're not exactly sure how many pumpkins are in this thing.

Get the joke?

Ginger in Foreign Language made her pumpkin look like one of our popular bobble head turtles.

Dave from Exploration Company made this pumpkin he called "Shish Ka Boo."

And here's the winning pumpkin, from Katie. That's real meat, people.

Karen came dressed to impress deep-fried fanatics everywhere.

Barb's wacky buffet retained the food fancy.

When he's not fixing web and computer problems, Vadim fights crime as one of the X-Men.

Devilish designer Michelle helps Nick search for coins and turtles to stomp.

And finally. here's the Tech Team decked out as the Channel 4 six o'clock news team from "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy." We won first place, which, since there were five of us, means we each get four bucks to spend at our local Target.

We didn't do it for the money. We did it for the glory.

Here's hoping your students aren't too wired on jujubees and goobers. And is it just me, or are Bit o' Honeys way too little honey and way too much bit?
