Just Another Day At Work, Ho-Hum

So I don't talk about work too much, aside from complaining about having too much, but for anyone who wonders what it's like working in children's publishing, here's a sample. Just another day at Scholastic, ho hum.

Off to the meeting, same as we do every day, yup...

The boss gathered the managers for an emergency meeting and said "Epic agility. Skate to where the puck is going to be."*
NAH NAH NAH NAH NAH Just kidding! Halloween is definitely my favorite holiday at Scholastic - we have an annual costume contest, and although the trade finance team (my division) doesn't join in on it, I absolutely LOVE watching it. We of course have some ridiculously talented and creative people working here, and the costumes they come up with amaze me every year. The only guidelines are that the costumes have to be related to children's books, and just to add the finishing touch of spookiness, Goosebumps author R.L. Stine himself is always one of our judges! Tons of fun, and believe it or not, all of these costumes are made by the participants just for the contest.

If I worked there (ah, sigh) I would be too intimidated to participate, with my lack of artistic ability. But oh, what a show. Oh R.L. Stine. Wow.

I just don't know where they find the time to make the costumes! A fabulous show, yes!

Fantastic! I would love to be in the Meow group being a cat lover. There is some real art talent in these costumes. What a fun tradition.
