Anyway, the party was fun and everyone had really cool costumes! Everyone left the party before midnight to go show off our costumes at a local bar. I told Queen Daenerys, to walk in and announce she is queen of the bar and show us off as her loyal serpents. I meant to say servants, but it came out serpents. I just went with it, we could have all slithered in (or Slytherin, if I want to add some Harry Potter references here). A lot of people at the bar were very confused about us being in costumes since Halloween is several weeks away. But it was funny to be the nerd queen [again], a lot of people got a kick out of a real-live R2 hanging in the bar drinking motor oil (beer). I kept getting stopped to answer questions and ask if I needed a “full equipment inspection (?!!)” each time I went to get a drink. Ummm….yeah. I wish I was making that up.
I actually ran into my co-worker there and she did not recognize me in full costume. I only met her a few weeks ago when I helped get her trained on one of the systems we use. I usually dress kinda boring at work, so it’s no wonder she didn’t recognize me at first. But now she probably thinks I spend my spare time as a Star Wars impersonator. Which I guess this month would be an accurate statement. haha!
