Happy Halloween!

Posted on October 29th, 2010

So today, as I was standing in the front yard giving my neighbors an incredible view of my mismatched jammies and bed-head hairdo, I realized I was the only one on the street without a pumpkin. Not even one. All the rest of the neighbors have a billion of them piled on their porches. Crap. What happened to me? I used to be annoyingly early with all the holiday decorating. Anyway, that means I am off today to find pumpkins. And Halloween candy. Because even though I bought candy I don’t like, I apparently ate all of it, which explains why my jeans mysteriously shrank (er, shrunk? shrinked? Whatever. They got smaller, okay?) in the wash this week.

Have a great Halloween. I know I promised a giveaway, but I still haven’t figured out how to do it. However, my web guru gave me a LIKE button, so life isn’t all that bad :)

    *LOL* Last year I waited to get pumpkins….yeah when Hallowe’en is on a Sat – not a good idea. I ended up having to go to Market Street and paying HUGE $$ for these ugly white ones…white? REALLY? They stayed on my porch (why carve? They are WHITE… SO wrong on so many levels) until about mid-Jan. Went to throw them away…yeah, ended up more like shoveling pudding doggie poop. Smelled about as bad too…….

    LOL, Karrin! I was a bit lucky. I went to the local farm so they weren’t too bad. Unfortunately, my selection was limited to the ones that are really bumpy and ugly and actually resemble my thighs.

    They did have blue pumpkins though. Maybe to coordinate with the white ones? WTH is that all about?

    Hmmm…I’d say ‘but that gives them character’ but I look in my mirror too so…yeah character, grape ape anyone? *sigh*

    Designer pumpkins – wow have we as humanity sunk so far? ; ) ‘Yes I think I WILL have some blue pumpkin pie grandma!’ Is it just me or do you also find yourself gagging a bit……?

    The weird thing is, they are green, not blue. So they look a bit…moldy. And yet I bought one. Okay two. :)

    Yes, bad washer. I need a new one–one that expands my jeans. That would work :)
