Spent Halloween at Churchill College for a formal hall and a Halloween Pav with some good friends. Andrew wore the most creative costume: a mum his mother brought from Texas (one of the strangest Texas traditions I've ever heard of) along with a Cow costume to be a prize-winning steer. I just took out the old Senegalese Mouride outfit which I also wore last year. Low on creativity but it still turned heads.
My stroke of creativity came with my pumpkin: I carved the entire globe into it. It took me an hour or two, but I got all 7 continents, the oceans, the Panama Canal, and a bunch of Islands, all the way down to Tasmania, which got a complement from a friendly Aussie. I guess all those hours playing GeoSense are good for something.
