It's not quite Halloween yet but I attended my first Halloween party and received high praise for my costume. I couldn't find the associated props for Frodo or Sam so I ended up being Ryan Gosling as a hobbit; this had the perk of allowing me to do my same hair and not shave my beard.

I figured no one would guess what I actually was beyond a hobbit but my friend Megan did actually guess the Gosling connection proving that I am just as handsome as People's sexiest man alive. The costume was 100% made of things I already had--as you remember I previously used this costume in 2003. Even the hair was free though I don't know if I'll do it again; there is still adhesive on my feet.
In other news I finally bought my tickets to go to the East Coast for Christmas and New Years. I'll be spending two weeks in Pittsburgh and New York City visiting some friends in what will be my first Christmas away from family.
I also got a small promotion at work. Now when you call Mocavo support/sale you have a small chance of talking to me. It's purely a raise in responsibilities but it does include more hours than I was getting.
