First of all, Sage and I were both incredibly lucky considering Hurricane Sandy. Neither one of us lost power, even though Sage lost the internet for a brief time. I feel sort of guilty that my biggest crisis was the fact that we got down to 1.5 bottles of wine by the end! And like any good pop culture/TV Junkies, we passed the time by marathoning TV shows…Sage went with The West Wing and Being Human (The UK version naturally), while I went with some Classic Doctor Who (my first experience with Tom Baker! I can see why people loved him so) and old school Grey’s Anatomy. Not a bad way to pass the time. Things are sloooooooowly getting back to normal here. Subways are still out, so my office remains blissfully closed until further notice. Yay!
Second of all…HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!
While we didn’t QUITE take Barney Stinson’s advice about slutting up for Halloween, Sage and I planned months ago to go as sassy versions of the Tenth and Eleventh Doctors. Luckily, Sandy waited to strike AFTER our big Halloween plans! We knew we wanted to go as SOMEONE from Doctor Who and we ultimately decided to go as Doctors, as we felt that there would be more pressure for accuracy had we gone as Rose or Donna Noble or Amy Pond. I am pretty proud of our results!!
We were also quite impressed with the pop culture cleverness of our friends at the party and of our friends on Twitter. Peruse more Halloween Geekery after the jump!
Breaking Bad’s Walt and Jesse was a very popular couples costume choice! We had a pair of these at our party!
Yeah, bitch!! MAGNETS.
“What makes humans different from other animals? We’re the only species on earth that observes Shark Week. Sharks don’t even observe Shark Week, but we do.” (You guys KNOW I had to work that Community quote in here.)
