We went to the Googleween party on Friday afternoon and it was fun like it has been the past two years. William was feeling anti-Halloween and so we didn't dress up but I did wear my Salem MA black shirt with a witch on it, so that has to count for something :-)

They had the gummy candy bar where I loaded up on gummy brains and skeletons, caramel apples, cookies, and popcorn. They had a haunted house set up inside one of the buildings and the first part was pretty lame since it was just a black room with some barriers. But the last room was great because they poked fun at some of their projects: a Google Labs room where there were performing some interesting human experiments and a Blue Screen of Death. They should have gone more for the humorous aspect than the scary.

The highlight of the party was the costume contest. The winning costume was this group one for the movie "UP." They had the dog, a replica house, the old man with the walker, but the best part was the scout with the balloons.

Here's a better closeup of him

The second place winner was "the guy as the giant brown box" (how they announced it) but I think he was trying to be Domo

We had a great time at the party even though we were not dressed up.
