"Back to School" Party at my Office -- 2008!

A few years ago, in honor of Fall, my office had a "Dress Like You Dressed in High School Party," and I just discovered the pictures from it hiding on my computer!

I actually wore that children's Phantom of the Opera tee when I was 16. The mask still glows in the dark. Also, if you want to get a real handle on my nerdiness: that's a binary watch I'm wearing.

As you can see, they set up a little faux backdrop so we could pose for "School Pictures" throughout the party. This is me and my friend/co-worker Rob posing as the Angsty Kids.

This is me and another awesome friend/co-worker, Jason Buchanan, posing together because we both wore combat boots. (This is high school, right? These allegiances are meaningful!)

Candy jewelry and children's backpack. Yeah, I'm sorry to tell you, I did that.
This picture of me and my office-mate Perry is totally not posed. BFFs!!!!

I don't know what masochistic tendency makes me reveal this picture of me doing the Tootsie Roll.

Anyway, the scent of falling leaves and No. 2 pencils in the air makes September feel like Back To School month, even though I haven't had a classroom to report to in years. We should have another Back to School Party for 2011!
