After I finished decorating on Monday, it just didn’t feel complete. So I spent Wednesday night bloodying up a sheet and angrily twisting up craft paper while watching the third presidential debate—it made for some great catharsis!
I think this one is pretty obvious, but in case you don’t know your Stephen King, it’s “Carrie.” And here’s another big fat Obviously: this desk belongs to Carrie. She was very pleased when she saw it today. She told me that she actually says, “Just like the movie,” when she tells people her name.
“Debby was still here yesterday when I was hanging this up, and I’m sure she was pleased,” I told Carrie this morning.
“Oh yeah, I’m sure she was!” Missy said sarcastically, overhearing me en route to her office.
Catherine felt left out when she came in on Tuesday and saw the decorations. This is kind of a stretch, but….
She’s very happy now!
But apparently she hasn’t seen Children of the Corn, so hopefully she does that this weekend.
This morning I was in the kitchen with Mitch and he said that everyone who comes to our floor for a meeting sees his new rustic decor since his office is right outside the conference room, and that he has been hearing some good reviews. MAYBE THIS IS MY TICKET TO DECORATING ON OTHER FLOORS OMG.
Dare to dream, you guys. Dare to dream.
Todd had the audacity to add fake spiders to the cobwebs on his decrepit barber shop display without asking my permission!
“You’re junking it all up!” I cried, and I think everyone thought I was joking but I wasn’t, I really mad. Just kidding, everyone knew I wasn’t joking.
In other Halloween news, we’re having a party here next week and I got to help plan it! I’m incorporating the final piece to my ambush decorating into the department party, which is TRICK OR TREATING. Basically I’m just going to turn all of the work areas I decorated into designated trick or treat zones, and each one will have candy specific to their decorations. Like, Lou-On the Grudge will have Japanese candy, The Blair Mitch Project will have those lame snack boxes of tiny pretzel sticks, Catherine of the Corn will have candy corn, etc etc. I mean, I’ll throw in some good candy too — god, get off my back!

Carnival Desk: 2012 (I think this one was my favorite though because it was so interactive and that’s how the Glenn Desecration Project was born!)
(I was pouting in 2013 because I got moved to an office in a neglected hallway.)
(I didn’t do anything last year either but I think it was because I was depressed or too busy with some other obsession, who knows.)
