Happy Halloween! It's Day 60!

This was a fine, fine Sunday. And a pretty good Halloween, although we got almost no trick'r treaters at all. Phoo! Well, bags of candy head to work, then.


For the last several years, Barb has been our Pumpkin Artist. This is why:

(without flash)



Watched my new Blu-Ray Special 35th Edition of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, had a lot of great food, and now, alas, the weekend is over. And tomorrow Nano begins.

Spent the day mentally plotting said Nano, doing the grocery shopping for Barb's mom (why is it that when we go to the store saying "we only need a few things, like carrots," we end up spending over $50?), then hanging around the house sitting on the Dragon site (where I actually picked up a lot of today's "Halloween Special," although I missed out on the pumpkin eggs, not even sure what they looked like), and getting the little Halloween treats they have been sprinkling throughout the site for the last two days. Productive, I know.

Adopt one today! * Adopt one today! * Adopt one today! * Adopt one today!

She even did it freehand, without a template, and just using a plain ol' paring knife. She's amazing!

I saw them start to drop last night when we got back from the party. I was surprised I got the first two really quickly, then puttered around the rest of the day trying to fill up. I NEVER get that many specials, so I'm milking it. I missed the year of the vampire eggs completely.

I did get a pumpkin last year (just one!), and had the same result (a tiny).

I ALMOST caught a vampire in the abandons once, but they go FAST.

It came out good!

Cave's slow 'cause of the special day, I think. One time I was there there were over 1000 users on the page!

I heard COM and MOM both had troubles getting on/getting eggs (I don't think MOM ever got an egg).

I watched a thing on Food Network last night that was an extreme pumpkin carving competition. Barb's is as good as theirs! Incredible talent there.

I'd love to see what she could do if she dug out her actual carving tools. I've seen her carve wood.
