Happy Halloween! No one really got into the spirit around here, what Halloween being a 'devil worshipping' holiday and all. Oh well, I still wore my halloween hat today at work and wished everybody a happy halloween, most nonAmericans don't know what halloween is anyways.
So the Rockies lost, I'm sad. I stayed up all night on Saturday to watch the 3rd game live. It was on at 12am and lasted until 5. It was a small group about 7 people, and unfortunately, everybody but me was a Red Sox's fan. We missed the 3rd and 4th inning cause our satillite went out, but had it live updates on the internet and reinacted what was happening in the game in the middle of receptio.n! It was a lot of fun, and we were breaking a lot of rules: we were all sitting behind the reception desk, we were being loud, and we broke into IT to fix the satillite.
The week has gone by slowly, but steadily. Tonight I signed up for Swimmers Watch with my friend Erika. Basically, we get to walk around the bridge and shine big lights into the water (except that the light we had was almost dead and didn't illuminate anything at all) and make sure no one is trying to climb onto the ship and steal things, plus they give us a radio to wear in order to call security if we see anything. We have UN soldiers walking the dock and security guards all around, but still things get stolen. So we had a 2 hour shift from 10-midnight.
So now its past my bedtime so goodnight
