No Such Thing

There is "No Such Thing" as too much Halloween! Yes, I do enjoy this time of year. I know it's not everyone's cup 'o tea, but I'm a fan and my family has learned to just let me do my "thang".  I also work with some crazy folks who also like to have a bit of fun and have learned to let me do my thing!  Every year the hospital has some crazy events they do the week of Halloween.  There's a basket raffle that raises money for equipment and also to help employees who need extra financial assistance.  There's a costume judging and a non-carving pumpkin contest.  Usually a few of our group does the costume contest. I don't get involved in that.  I feel like a wear a costume every day as it is!  But for some reason a few of us jumped on the pumpkin  bandwagon.  I wanted a pic of the undecorated pumpkin and this was the only one I had:
The pumpkin is the round orange thing...the crazy person with the green light handles is Stephanie.  See what I have to put up with day in and day out?  Here is our finished product:
If you look closely you can see it's many surgical hands that can complete a million tasks...it's eyes that see everything at all times...it's crazy hair after you take a surgical cap off...and a knife ready to hand to a surgeon..yes folks, it's our version of a Halloween Surgical Nurse.  I'm hoping we'll win this one...wish us luck! P.S..I just noticed the "RIP" headstone. It's not the usual outcome of our surgery department. Just thought I'd mention that!

You obviously work with a great group of people. We struggle with getting much social spirit.

Wooooooooo, YaYa! That Halloween Surgical Nurse would be a big hit up in the ICU waiting room! (LOL) Are those eyes on her your deviled eggs from the previous post? :) Did she come to your hospital after a stint at Chicago No Hope? :) Well, I hope you win the contest with that imaginative entry, dear friend. What's the prize, a pumpkin pie maybe?

You should let Eddy compete in the costume contest. You could put red trunks on him and gloves on his paws and he could go as a boxer! :)

Have a wonderful weekend, dear friend YaYa!
