I was surprised that a lot of people responded to my entry about not drinking. So today, I went to a Halloween party. Not to my surprise, all the drinks (I think) were alcohol. I didn\’t want to try the punch, knowing that it could be spiked. In fact, someone admitted later that she poured rum into it.
So I drank nothing. Although I sort of stuffed myself with cake, cookies and candy. And chips. And tuna salad. And celery.
But the Halloween party rocked (PICTURES) This is the first time I have dressed up in 4 years. 4 years since someone thought I was 12 years old (I made her guess how old I was since she said that I was too old, she said she was a schoolteacher and knew these kind of things, how far off!). I dressed up as my advisor (or the head of the HCI dept). Basically, I was the IT GIRL of the party. Personally, I loved the TIVO guy.
It took 2 hours to make my hair messy and spray it white. I should have gotten a wig, but the natural look worked nonetheless. Non-hci people thought I was a pumpkin, an old pregnant lady, or a pizza delivery woman. But no I was…HER. I had a pizza slice with me, because she is apparently on Atkins. During our weekly seminar, she would get 5 slices of pizza and just eat the toppings/cheese and leave the rest behind. She wears a fanny pack. She is slightly pleasantly plump (but I borrowed my housemate\’s nice pillow that everyone kept touching…STOP THAT!). And of course the messy hair. I also wore my glasses which made me so dorky. But it worked right?
