you know what they say about idle hands

Busy yours with this Halloween-appropriate activity. It's fun and educational. You may even find it curiously compelling. I posted this once before, way back at the beginning of the month, but here's another chance to savor its cucurbitaceous pleasures.

Awesome word, too.

I know you can hear me... said...

I am pleased to report that I am MUCH better at carving computer pumpkins than actual pumpkins. Although the chances that I could have been worse were pretty slim...

Happy Halloween!

That's the best punkin carvin I ever done. Cleaner, too.

And now let me pull my haad out of my sloppy, wet, cyber pumpkin (they are kinda messy, afterall) and apologize for missing the last few posts. I see that you've had tons of great support, but I still feel bad about missing them. My heart is bursting with hope for a successful January transfer, and I hope you can pull together a pleasant Thanksgiving, whether or not in the company of your mother and sibs. Oh, and although I'm sure you've received far more compelling invitations than mine, you're more than welcome down here, too. The menu will feature a free-range, hormone-free, locally raised farm turkey from my CSA, whom I presume will be leading a fairly happy life up until the very, very end. unless turkeys have intuitiion.

I love that the dictionary entry has a Thomas Pynchon quote.

This is a damned sight easier than real carving.

Okay, that is a fun link!! Thanks for that!

I am hoping it will suffice when my boys suddenly realize that we never carved pumpkins this year... Bad mom... bad, bad mom....

Thank you for the pumpkin. We don't really do Halloween over here (although various shops would rather like it if we did - there are more merchandising opportunities than those served by our burning effigies on bonfires day that is coming up soon) so I haven't done any real pumpkin carving.

Fabulous link.

My daughter is sucked in...plus no mess.

I only carved vurtual pumpkins this year, and I kind of missed sticking my hands into the gooey, cold center. Oh well, there is next year.
