In previous years, I’m told that Raymond went for Halloween as an Interoffice Envelope and a Nobel Prize, and we were thinking at dinner last Saturday, what would be a good costume for him this year? On the paper theme we reached a set of ideas around hazard warning signs. The favorites (of mine) were the Danger: Contents under High Pressure and the the standard diamond. The problem is that it wasn’t quite enough to be worthy of a Raymond costume. The Nobel Award was good because of the time he took to forge all the signatures. My last idea which I think would also be good is to be a signature gatherer. You could have a bunch of proposals for every possible sillyness, and try to convince people to sign them. Alas I don’t think he was too interested in that one either.
