Snoozy.

It's Saturday. BuyCostumes.com is doing this thing where they have 5 costumes each day for under 5 bucks so I stayed up until 6am to see what the deal is today because they're always sold out by the time I get to work during the week. Then I find out they only do it on weekdays. Wonk wonk. Not like those pre-assembled costumes ever fit me or anything, but I still like getting a good deal on things. So much so that I will stay up until 6am on a Saturday just to get my fat paws on a steal. It's called dedication to your craft, people.

My department decided to be zombies this year as a group for Halloween. That's kind of a bummer since I was already a zombie LAST year for Halloween. Being a SUPER plus sized gal, you pretty much have like 3 options. Clown, witch or zombie. Boooring. I originally wanted to get a Biggest Loser tshirt and be a Biggest Loser "BEFORE" contestant, but everyone kept giving me the self-esteem lecture, so I had to scrap it. So I guess I got no choice but to rejoin the forces of the dead this year. I need a creative way to die...any ideas? First one to say heart attack gets a punch in the face!

Hey, since we're already talking about Halloween and all, I may as well show you the pictures of my cubicle. They didn't come out that great. I mean, it's way more spookier in person, is what I'm saying.

First I found these cool granite thingies at the dollar store. Here they are just chillin on my desk with a bunch of cups and my fan:

Here's the rest of it. You can't really see the cemetary gate thingies on the top, but those kick ass, plus they kinda make my cubicle walls higher which is good because it makes it harder for people to spy on me while I update Blogger all day. I even typed in a personalized message for you!
Yeah, that's it. I wish I could do more, but I still have to work in the stupid thing so it's hard to really let the creative juices flow in such limited space. One day I'll have a job with a real office that belongs to only me and I will decorate the shit out of it because professionalism is overrated.

Here is an example of why I should have a giveaway every day:
I don't mind having to buy your love and affection, but at least be more subtle! Say, if you haven't entered yet, you still have 2 more dayssss.

I'm prolly gonna spend the rest of today in bed, so I hope you have a great day doing whatever it is that normal people do on the weekends. Good golf, good tennis, or whatever makes you happy. Marrrvin Zindler, Eyewitness News. (shout out to my Houston peeps!)

I had a secret goal of wanting to dress up as batman for a halloween party and not be laughed at this year. I've made good progress but the batman costume I think is going to have to wait for next year.

As for the give=a=way as I think I mentioned, I was reading your blog before I knew you were giving away stuff. In fact you were one of the first blogs I started to read on a regular basis. (you are even bookmarked in my sony PSP gamesystems webbrowers too!) Pretty loyal to have people reading your blogs even away from a PC huh?!

Your desk needs some PEZ dispensers. Is that a Micheal Jackson picture cut out? He was the man... weird, but he could dance! Now give in to Prince or the B-52's.

I want M.C. Hammer pants for halloween. It's odd that only at halloween time any of the clothes I like are sold in stores. Odd.

It's always Hammer time at Foolsfitness!- Alan

Oh Just so you know I'm sincere and not just trying to butter you up to win goodies, you need *not* enter foolsfitness in the drawing. And if I'm trying to butter you up it would be low fat butter spray too because I care!

I also think your emblem pic looking through a donut is one of the greatest I have seen.

Again, your gift to me is your blog and comments...even if you did remind me about not being able to fit into a batman costumne.

Yeah, I started reading before you had a giveaway...and I kept trying to be a follower but couldn't find a follow button anywhere (I ain't too bright somedays)...so I saw something about a giveaway on someone else's blog...came over to check it out and finally figured out how to become a follower of your blog! So...I didn't enter your giveaway, but I still feel as though I've won. :)

I love that you decorate your cubbie for halloween. It is my favorite holiday and I love decorating my house up even tho I am really the only one who sees it.

I already have two halloween parties to attend and need to come up with a clever costume. I was thinking of being a Cougar - not the animal. HA!

One year I was a walking "dead" bride and I bought one of those fake wounds and glued it on my skin, around my neck and I had "died" from slashing my throat. Came out cool!

HopeFool said...

Choking on a chicken bone is one way to go.
Also consider, crucifiction & autoerotic asphyxiation.

Damn, I know I owe you a contest shout out link... I'll get to it.

TJ said...

Love the decorations! You did a great job! :) hummm a way to die...I liek hopefools idea of the chicken bone...what if you were in an all you can eat chicken wing contest at hooters and choked on that? lol Maybe? Just a try...

Graciela said...

I found the same granite thingies at the dollar store by my mom's house. I collect gargoyles, so those were the only ones I bought. But I absolutely LOVE the dollar store. You can get an amazing amount of crap for 20 bucks!

Salted with Shadows said...

Your cubicle looks great! Love the gargoyles, which dollar store was it? I want some :)

Tantra Flower said...

I love your decorations! Halloween is my second favorite holiday. I'm still trying to decide on my costume too.

You could be the devil with the blue dress on. I won $100 and a free dinner with that costume a few years back. :)

And I don't see anything wrong with being a Biggest Loser before contestant. Those folks are so brave; I admire them.

Tantra Flower said...

Also, I agree with Hopefool: autoerotic asphyxiation. It would be hilarious.

LAF said...

Those decorations rock! I've always liked the decapitation/reattachment look when it comes to zombies. Can't wait to see this year's pic whatever you decide.

Jack Sh*t, Gettin' Fit said...

You would absolutely love my office, T.

@eloh said...

IS THAT a naked man in your IN BOX? I know, I know, I was supposed to be looking at the Halloween crap...but I couldn't get past the in box.

Cut up an old cabbage patch doll or two or three and have parts of them decorate a big shirt...then dress up like the Octo-mom before..maybe stap a couple on your pants leg..
basically big eye make up, giant lips and turn one of you with wigs into Octo mom hair.

Last time I had to go to an office Halloween day, I just strapped a couple cabbage patches to each ankle and went as white trash....is wasn't a very hard leap to make.

Lynne said...

Rest in pieces? I love it. Good idea for the cubes....

Fat Girl said...

You are wicked funny. I love the cubicle. And I laughed out loud at the stat counter. I don't even WANT to see mine--it's probably like, 1 visitor today. 0 visitors tomorrow, loser. Hahaha!

Creative ways to die? You could put an unopened parachute on your back.

Later...

Erin said...

Amy said...

Aliana said...

Great job on the cubicle...enjoy your weekend too! I am organizing my kitchen...fun.

screwdestiny said...

Your cubicle is bomb. Loved the personalized message.

I say you got electrocuted, then you can make your hair all crazy and cool.

TeresaLynn said...

I miss old Marvin Zindler and his blue glasses. Love your cubicle decor! I work from home, so I suppose I should get with the program and pull out some tombstones, etc.

Hope you had a good Saturday!

Chubby Stubby Kay said...

Your desk is freakin' fantastic!

Seriously, I'm jealous.

Carlos said...

Jogging Auburn said...

... death by chocolate? Or perhaps you fell victim to one of your own poison cupcakes?

Losing it in Vegas said...

Love the cubicle!

Camevil said...

Halloween cubicle = killer

I like that you have MJ in there, but you should switch it out for a Thriller MJ for the season.

Zombie ideas:

Dead crazy cat lady
Death by carrots
Death by yoga
