"Which one is better? One? Or Two?" Dr. Vader asked.

"The Force is strong with this one," Darth Vader said early this morning as he hijacked Anita Saxena's body. Her flesh morphed into plastic and mechanical parts, and she scrambled for her inhaltor, wondering if she was having an asthma attack.

Yup, that's me dressed as Darth Vader giving little kids eye exams. I have to say this is one of the MOST fun days at work I've ever had. Not only do I have a light sabre (which is a bit wimpy on the light part if you ask me) I also have a voice box that projects Darth Vader's loud, sonorous breathing.

I haven't dressed up for Halloween in YEARS. Years, I tell you. But when you're employer says they're holding a costume contest and the winner gets a PAID DAY OFF I'm going all out.

"And, now, your highness, we will discuss the location of your hidden rebel base." Darth Vader says.

Shut up Darth. Can't you see I'm busy blogging right now. Jeez.

"Today will be a day long remembered. It has seen the death of Kenobi, and will soon see the end of the rebellion," Darth says in an eerie raspy voice.

Umm....anyway. So, If I win, you know what I'm going to be doing with that paid day off....

"Perhaps I can find new way to motivate them," Darth muses.

Um.... No. If I win, I 'm going to spend the day WRITING. Duh?!? Of course.


  1. Boo!

    Just Haunting you from the Haunt. And LOVE the costume. My boys would be way jealous. Hope you win!

  2. Hey bane!! It's so good to hear from you again. I thought you had permanently disappeared off the blog-o-sphere. And yes, I was among one of the winners.

    Janet- All the boys that came to you clinic thought the light saber and voice box were the coolest.

  3. I love it! I love Darth Vader, and that costume just rocks!

    I came over from Theresa's blog -- nice to meet you. :)

  4. Hey Shelly! Thanks for dropping by. I love the costume too! There is something real empowering about wearing a cape. Wish I could wear one everyday.

  5. Haha how fun! I loves me some Star Wars.

  6. Haha! Oh brilliant. I totally agree, when a paid holiday is on the cards I would go all out too - hope you get it!
