At work we occasionally do the thing where everyone brings in food. I normally make something called a dump cake. Don’t jump to any conclusions, it’s just that you basically just dump the ingredients in one by one and then cook it. Easy peasy. Since this was for a Halloween party though, I thought I’d attempt to get creative. Here’s my half-improvised recipe (pic below):

At work today we had our annual dress-up for Halloween and I thought I’d cover a summary of the marketing department (in which I work).
First, here’s my outfit. It takes a little of, shall we say, calculation….
so, the last two days have been pretty darn cool (except me feeling like junk and not being able to go to work today).
first of all, yesterday we (me, eric elves, rebecca macdonald, sean brooks) had arranged to watch the incredibles with dr. chambers and pastor fred in the admin building. with some sly planning on the part of my colleagues, dr. chrisope was also invited. professor schulten was kind enough to join us as well.
when we were all there, about halfway through the movie sean paused it. i stated that there was going to be a “half-time” show. puzzled looks filled the room.
then rebecca pulled out twister.
for those of you who don’t know, dr. chrisope and dr. chambers have an ongoing twister competition in which they were currently tied, 1-1. well, yesterday was the tie-breaker. as the majorly surprised and slightly annoyed dr. chambers was preparing, macho dr. chrisope threw his shoes against the wall and strutted john wayne-style over to the map. “let’s get this over with,” dr. chambers said.
the match began with fairly easy moves, each contestant straining to show the other superior wit. finally, as the moves got harder, the strain was noticeable. dr. chrisope smirked, “you’re going to the floor, chambers.” “then i’m taking you with me,” was the automatic response of his adversary.
the last move, the final turn. dr. chrisope performed the move magnificantly, twisting his wiry body like a paper clip. it was time for dr. chambers to go. he began, shifting his weight, and then, in slow motion it seemed, he fell, trying desparately to position himself in an attempt to force dr. chrisope down with him.
while the dust settled, the spectators looked in amazement. somehow, dr. chrisope had escaped the clutching hands of dr. chambers and was still there, hands and feet in position on their colors, a grim smile on his face. the match was over.
IT WAS PROBABLY THE COOLEST THING EVER!
that is, until dr. chrisope made a stop in our greek class and did the MISS PIGGY CHOP onto an almost empty box of mountain dew cans. all in all, one of the greatest days ever. the only reason i include today is because i saw a pic of drew pinkley acting ghetto in a church van. i had a picture of it here but now it’s broken for some reason.
