And that one thing that I needed? A stuffed alligator. The bank's Christmas party this year has an 80s theme, so I'm going as Detective Sonny Crockett from Miami Vice. One of my mates is going as a ghostbuster, and I know of at least two people going as Cyndi Lauper. Another friend reckoned he wasn't dressing up, intending to show up in jeans and t-shirt (which he reckons is what he was wearing in the 80s anyway!) so we found him a leopard-patterned vest / waistcoat thingy so he can go as Ferris Bueller.
I can't wait.
