The company I work for gets super into Halloween, like you need a full-fledged act with your costume to have a shot at winning the costume contest. As a general apatheist, I just watched — in a non-creepy way. Most of the acts were adorable, deliciously awkward or some combination thereof. I obvi voted for the dog dressed up as a sheep and her owner was Bo Peep. So cute.
I tried to dress like a geek and someone asked me why I didn’t dress up. -_-. The real question is, do I always look geeky? or did my geek fail and I just look like a hipster? I am having an existential crisis over here. Also, apparently my definition of geeky is wearing socks with Toms and cuffing my jeans. To be fair, my Tom’s tan is probably one of the geekiest parts about me, and I hid it with socks, so I might even look less geeky than I normally do. Anyways, super awkward.
After the festivities, we all went on a costume parade down Wilshire Blvd., where strangers took pictures of us, we got honked at, we got stared at, we got smiled at and we probably got laughed at. IDK, it was just a super bizarre life experience and I’m not sure whether it was awesome or ridiculously embarrassing. Leaning towards awesome, unless any of my friends saw me. Also, definitely awkward.
I am pretty sure I have chocolate on my nose, pretty awkward.
p.s. I start a new class today, love first day of class impressions on Halloween. I also, awkwardly, didn’t bring a change of shirt so I have to wear my Shatner one.
Anyone else have some wicked awesome Halloween stories?
Awkward Update: As I was driving through Hollywood last night, I saw a man dressed in black and on a horse, so I was like “most epic Zorro costume ever!” Turns out, it was horse cop. 😦
