Halloween Followup

Alright, here is the pic of the pumpkins that we carved.

On the left is Nicole's. She carved a dancing Katamari, from the ball rolling game Katamari Damacy. My pumpkin is in the middle, it is a hand turkey the size of Godzilla destroying a town, scary, no? The pumpkin on the right is Charity's (friend from K-State) who carved pumpkins with us. You can't tell the differences in shading, but the hair glows in real (jack-o-lantern) life. So that was a good time.

Also, we dressed up for work since there was a costume contest, I didn't know that this was going to be the "offical" contest entry pic or I would have got a bit more prepared for it, like getting my leather bound book that I brought with, but, oh well.

If you can't tell, and no one could, I am a Data Sage that can do magical things to your data without regards to the underlying study or mere mortal rules of math and science, since this is a popular request from some of my customers. However, this was a bit too complicated to convey to people ourside my brain in the time they gave me to answer "what are you?" so I was going undercover as a wizard most of the time on Friday.

Nicole had the same problem that I did and didn't get properly dressed for the picture, she was a spiffy hat, but that is ok since she still won second place overall.

The winner of the contest was Jim, who had an awesome costume as a nerd, and really played the part well too.

Just for future reference: Jim looks nothing like this in real life.

I thought you were trying to be Destiny from the Sandman comic books. But Data Mage was my second guess.

I never have heard of Destiny before, but after looking at some Google images I could see where you are going with that.

I think those costumes were GREAT! I'm going to have to steal the nerd idea for next year.
