A wizard is never late, nor is he early, he arrives precisely when he means to.

(Part of Team Journey East! Harold, Shane, Lisa and my silly red face. Too bad the rest of the gang couldn't make it!)


Obviously, this post is a little late coming, but Happy Halloween anyway!

In celebration of my favorite holiday, a bunch of us got together and threw a party in the teacher's office of the library (the building where we have most of our classes). Several teachers attended, as did some of our students and friends!

I wish I knew how to get rid of red-eye...hmm...I'll probably start playing with picture-editing one day....

This is Beth in front of the group performing "The Telltale Heart" by Edgar Allen Poe. She's a great scary story teller! We all told some stories of our own as well. Even some of the students! Jane, one of the local teachers, did a few jokes and taught us some excercises!

This party was a really great chance for so many people to come together and get to know each other! Claire and Michelle, of course, already know each other from the competition, but they also got to meet my friends from different universities, and they got to hang out with the other foreign teachers here at CMU.

Pat, aka Father Christmas, is the best addition to any party! I mean...look at that beard! Gotta love papa!

Shane and Lisa's crew were big hits. Those guys are great! Here, Viviane and Shane pose for a picture.

Soon the costumes broke out of the bags and attacked the innocent party-goers! Lisa, here, was one of the first victims. We will forever remember her monstrous sacrifice. ^_^

This is hard to see, but...somewhere in the shadows...many of the boys succombed to the evil rabbit ears and were subject to numerous flashing cameras.

Not even I was spared! Boy, that hat got around. And please, ignore the small stick in my hand. It's not a chopstick, I promise. It's a magic wand. Simply add another to make a pair, and you can eat dumplings!

No one, it seems, could defeat the Hat'o'Witches.

Or the Phantom Mardi Gras Mask.

After numerous futile attempts at victory, we all fell, one by one, on the battlefield that was the CMU 2008 Halloween Party.

Harold was the last remaining survivor.

HEY! It's Christine.

I didn't even know you had this thing.

I'm glad you are having fun, and you are totally brave, cause I would have been booking a ticket back after the toilet incident.

I miss you too! I remember your blog now, but I definitely forgot you had one! Yeah that toilet thing was stupidly awesome. As is the fact that I tripped down some stairs the other day lmao. But all is well in the Middle Kingdom, and this chick is still goin' strong!

Love you bunches, and hey! I'll be back in 7 months lmao. :)
