Halloween Costumes

My wife and I went to a costume party last weekend and for a costume we went as PC and Mac, from the Apple commercials. This matches our real computer usage at home. It's a pretty easy costume, she wore a t-shirt (couldn't find an unzipped sweatshirt to wear which would add to the authenticity) and an iPod on a lanyard around here neck. I wore a suit and also various Windows-logoed tchotchkes that I picked up at the company store (pen, zip cardkey holder, "Geek" button, etc). She also bought me a pocket protector. To clarify what we were aiming for, we both wore those "Hello my name is" tags with "PC" and "Mac" on them. It worked really well and is a pretty cheap costume if you already own a suit and an iPod.

Which reminds me, if you search on "willy wonka cane" you still, to this day, come back with my description of how to make one as the first algorithmic result. Actually the second hit is pretty good also. Here's somebody selling one for $430, which is about $415 more than I spent on mine. "99% of the canes out there, are simple thin walled plastic tubes, with no taper to them. They have smooth surfaces, and are usually filled with Nerds. And they're usually topped off with a strange array of items, not limited to door stoppers, or even chair legs." Guilty!
