Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 184.108.40.206
Many years ago when I was working in the IT department of a hospital, I put on a second pair of arms and antenae and went to the company costume party. The usual conversation:
Them: "So, are you supposed to be some sort of insect or something?"
Me: "Sort of- I'm a bug. A computer bug."
Me: (showing ID badge) "I'm a computer bug from Data Processing."
Them: (light bulb goes on and smile crosses their face) "Oh, NOW I get it!"
Or, Them: (blank look) "Huh?"
I think I liked the latter better. :)
does anyone have any other suggestions?
I had a few thoughts concerning the halloween costume last night:
1. Using a black "fish net" type of drape, put a whole bunch of those "Easy Buttons" on it
2. Making one of those "Halo" Arby's Hats and dress up as a Arby's Sandwich
3. Using a black "fish net" type of drape, attach a bunch of different colored glow sticks to it. Then periodically spinning, to make the drapery span outward. I bet that would be a cool effect.
4. Getting an orange t-shirt, which I've already seen, that says "This is My Halloween Costume".

1. Five (05) Couples - Dressed as "0"s and "1"s.
2. Eleven (11) Group - First one dressed as a "search query". The rest numbered one (01) through ten (10) with Title and Snippet.
3. Two (02) Couple - USB Drive and USB Port
4. One - SPAM
I think we could get very creative with our costumes. Hey, we need to have a WebmasterWorld Halloween Ball! $25,000 USD to the first place winner too! :)
P.S. The $25k is all in jest. I'm not authorized to award that type of amount. Or any amount for that matter. :)

I guess Brett will have to raise the price for using WebmasterWorld then :)

P.S. The Googlebots can then chase the Links and we'll be able to see how "nofollow" is really treated. Oh the irony of it all...

Then origin srikes:
If I my fiance were "whipping" me. Would I not, then be WebMASTER World? Or should I be "whipping" her. Not that I'm into
Don't sweat the grammar. I barely made it out of kindergarten. ;)
Anyway it was fun. I think I may do the same thing again this year, just do different makeup.
2005: "Bird Flu". I wore a chicken costume. Required some modification to breathe. Have pity, please, on anybody wearing those big, full-body costumes! Glued a water bottle to my head, tried to look as sick as possible, and carried a bottle of "Tamiflu". Just in case they didn't get it, I carried a big yellow "protest sign".
Vaccination, not euthanasia!
2006: "San Diego Real Estate". I was a bit early on this one. Would certainly work this year. Wore one of those "barrel" costumes. As sold, the costume is one of those kinda rude ones. Covered up the "rude" part with a "For Sale By Owner" sign. Of course, I got a lot of "hah, hah, but it'll never happen" comments, mainly from real estate agents.
LilliabethSo I went out to Reuters to catch some of the latest headlines. Maybe some of these would be good costumes?
1. Democrat Edwards into MySpace, MTV campaigning
2. Google looking at privacy protections for users
3. Not a "Halo" fan? Other games beckon
4. Apple and Orange at odds over iPhone deal
Reuters.com gets full recognition for these headlines.
