And Happy Hallowe'en

Its been one of the traditions of Cold Spring Harbor Lab ever since I have been here - Marco's party for Hallowe'en. Everyone has to come dressed up in full regalia, and dance through the night. It brings out the shyest scientists in the lab in spirits you wouldn't believe, and they spend days planning what to wear and how to go about it. Friday evening was full of sly giggles, and last minute rushes to the thrift store or 'party city' and in the night, unrecognisable monsters and such shine forth .... ooh la la, its such good fun, and I have enjoyed it so much through my grad student days here. This was the last party since grad students eventually do graduate :) I already have, and Marco supposedly soon will.. so just this - thanks Marco for making this day when we forget who we are, and just descend into something we never want to meet again, especially at night! HAPPY HALLOWE'EN!!!

I have been dying to put these pictures up, after the party that we had on Friday....evil grin :).
To all of you, who dared to be different, Hurrah :)))

Hehe, dressing in drag sure seems to be a favorite with the guys ! I saw a guy dressed in a little pink cheerleading outfit the other day *shudder*

sinusoidally: heheh, no me in the photos, only other people, had to pull their collective legs you see. I was dressed as "Fall", with leaves sewn onto a red dress...

ash: pink cheerleading outfit is scary! the most amazing part was that the guy in the photo with the pink dress had high heels and danced the night through without tripping even once. I couldn't do that for nuts!
