Hokie Hope Day (Continued)

By employment, hokies, school No Comments

We sat outside at lunch, and it was surreal watching everyone walk by in orange and maroon. I keep wanting to say thank you to random people on the street for wearing my school’s colors today. A guy even walked by Granby Bistro – where Candice, Tyra and I were eating – and yelled, “Let’s go Hokies!”

We took a picture at work of everyone in their VT colors to send in with our donation to the Hokie Spirit Memorial Fund.

Countdown to Halloween

There’s only one week left until my current second favorite holiday. I wore my black see-through spiderweb shirt to work to celebrate. (Don’t worry, I wore it under a blazer over a green cami with a conservative pleated skirt and my Diesel boots – it was only a little inappropriate, but not too bad.)

My costume finally arrived via FedEx this morning, and I used my lunch break to pick up some shoes to wear with it at Hot Topic. I was going to get red patent leather platforms, but they were too painful to walk in, so I opted for some knee-high, white patent leather boots…that lace up the back with a ribbon. What? They were on sale. I’m pretty sure my entire office probably thinks I’m moonlighting at Ocean’s Cabaret by now. Oh well.

I also picked up the new My Chemical Romance CD while I was at Hot Topic – it was on sale for $9.99. If you don’t know The Black Parade was released today, you obviously haven’t logged in to MySpace yet this afternoon. Get with the program. Go to Hot Topic. Get it. It’s awesome.

The Aerosmith concert rocked. Check out Laurie’s blog for the pics. Be sure to notice Steven Tyler in a chiffon leopard-print shirt paired with red leather pants. Sweetness.
