Happy Halloween from Alcatraz Media!

Wednesday, October 31st, 2012

Everyone at the Alcatraz Media & Reserve123 Atlanta Headquarters would like to wish you a ghoulishly great and frightfully fun Halloween! We had a pretty sweet lil’ office party and enjoyed candy, cupcakes, and laughs at costume choices throughout the day, and decided why not share a few fun highlights with our awesome travel pals? Here are a few of our favorite costumes!

First up we have Nicara, one of our lovely Reservations Agents, as Little Red Riding Hood. Don’t let her sweet smile deceive you though – she totally destroyed that Big Bad Wolf, all by herself.

Next to her is Dra, one of our awesome Group & Charter Sales Support agents, as a crossplay of Alex DeLarge from the film “A Clockwork Orange,” a 1971 film that was written, directed and produced by Stanley Kubrick, adapted from Anthony Burgess’s 1962 novella A Clockwork Orange about a dystopian, future Britain.


Meet Janice – Accountant during the day and… if it’s a busy day, an accountant at night as well

Janice doesn’t dress like this every day, but if she did, it would make accounting a lot more fun. I may actually start a petition for weekly Janice costumes.

The majority of us don’t care too much for numbers. With numbers, there is always an answer, even if the answer is zero that unravels the mystery of a parabola in some graph we have forgotten how to read, there will always be an answer. Unfortunately, those answers can get a bit large and complicated with decimals and multiplication. Throw in some division in there and you got yourself at least an hour’s worth of work for me. (I’m kidding!) This is why we love Janice so much. She and Sacki crunch these numbers together and financial tasks are completed, and most importantly, people get paid. She makes numbers into money, and I take that money and buy food and stupid apps for my phone, which is why I think she’s the bee’s knees.

Janice not only does the number crunching, she and Michelle make sure the office is running smoothly by fixing computers and throwing away random office plants I’ve never seen before (who knew there was practically a tree growing in Tony’s office?). She does all of this with a smile and a couple of jokes in between tasks. Buzzing around the office, Janice is always in a good mood and is willing to help anyone who asks.

So meet Janice, you may end up loving her as much as we do.

K: What do you do at Reserve123?

J: I am an accounting manager. I work with Sacki, and we process all of the payroll and the supplier invoices for payment. We also handle all of the company banking

K: What is your favorite city and why?

J: My favorite city is Monaco just because it’s beautiful, the people are kind, and the scenery is awesome!

K: What city would you like to visit?

J: I would like to go to Honolulu. I’ve never been to Hawaii, so I would LOVE to go! It’s one of those bucket list things to do. I would also like to go to England, but I’d rather see Hawaii first!

K: Besides experiencing a new city, what is your favorite part about traveling?

J: I like going to the out of the way places like the cafes and meet the locals. Ask them “What do you do for a living” or “How many children do you have?” I enjoy human interest type stuff and get involved with the culture.

K: What is your advice for starting a conversation with a local?

J: Find something you want to compliment or something you want to question them. It’s especially easy to compliment women on their jewelry or clothes. I mean, who doesn’t like getting complimented?There are a lot of times where people are just really friendly and are not intimidating at all.

K: If you can do a U.S. road trip, what kind of road trip would it be?

J:I would like to go to every national park in every state. If they don’t have a park, I’ll go to a state park or a big city… that is something I would definitely like to do one day.

K: What would be three songs you would have on your travel playlist?

J: Gotta have The Eagles – Hotel California, Elton John. Really, anything that’s 1970s to 1980s rock and roll music.

K: Driver or passenger on these road trips?

J: Oh I’d love to be a passenger. I hate driving; I actually prefer to fly. I admit that I am not a good driver…ugh I just find driving boring and tedious.

K: Oh even if you have a limousine?

J: Oh if I had a limo and I’m the passenger, no problem! A little champagne, a little music, and we’re good to go!

K: Your opinion on Hawaii floral shirts during vacation – Yay or nay?

J: I think they’re great. Do what you want to do!

K: In unrelated travel news, how have you fared at the chili cook offs you have attended?

J: We’ve done very well. We’ve placed 3rd, 7th, 8th, and 10th!

K: How many speeds do you have?

J: Two – off and high. I really do! I’ve been told that all my life.

Hybrid 468x60
The best thing about Halloween is not the candy; it’s not the decorations; it’s not the season 2 premiere of The Walking Dead (gasp); it’s not even the annual over-indulgence of candy corn. It’s the simple fact that everyone can enjoy it and everyone can dress up!

It’s not just for kids, though I have seen some ADORABLE babies dress up as pumpkins, it’s for everyone and everything. I asked the office to submit some of their favorite Halloween pictures.

Kathy submitted this awesome picture of her granddaughter Madison as a vampire. This girl has got skills, just check out her shoes.

Allison shared her picture of Cappie, her golden retriever, wearing his ‘rodeo bull’ costume.

This is a picture of Allison and her husband at an 80’s party. Please note the very well dressed yuppie talking on a cellphone which is about the size of my shoe.

It really should be 80's night every night

Tamesha shared this picture of Tamaya as a pink maid, Princess Kiyah, the bashful vampire Jay, and Lili as a quiet little vampire. Jay is the cutest vampire I have ever seen, and I just want to pinch his little cheeks!

Time to go trick-or-treating!

Sondra shared this picture of a tiny, tiny fireman named Crouton. HA!


Little Crouton

Avery is a marine, Austin is a zombie marine, and Madison is a little princess. Love that Austin took two costume ideas and made it into the coolest costume ever. Picture is by Michelle.

Last year, I had to make a costume last minute and came up with Mathilda from The Professional.

About half the people at the party knew who I was

Do you have any amazing costumes to share with us? Leave a comment and tell us what you were for Halloween!

Happy Halloween!!
