Yes, He Has An Afro

Sorry yet again for not posting right after the weekend. It was quite eventful, but work has continued to blow up in my face and I haven't had a chance to update you all on things. I've been frustrated enough at work that everyone is calling me "Mr. Grumpy", which just irritates me even more and makes me say bitchier things. It's an ugly spiral.

Fortunately, I was able to relax and have a great time with my colleagues on Saturday night, as it was our company's annual ball, this year's theme being...Gotham City. Awesome, I know.

From our team, only two of us really dressed up for the event, but other than the expected characters (Batman, Robin, Poison Ivy, Catwoman, etc.), most people seemed to throw the theme to the wind and dress up however the hell they wanted. Attendees included:
  • A Super Mario Brother
  • The Transformers
  • He-Man
  • At least a few "Goth" freaks
  • A Klansman (I wish I was kidding -- imagine how mortified his table must have been having to sit with him)
And there were plenty of others, but I fail to remember them off the top of my head at this point. I have lots of pics though (which continue all the way until I got home around 5am), and will post the link here once they're ready for sharing.

In the meantime...here's a teaser:

That's awesome that everybody gets into it, at least.

Nice 'fro, by the way. You look like I do in the morning when I wake up, minus the dripping mascara.
