during my move to my new place I found some pumpkin carving kit that someone must have given me ages ago. It contained a few small tools(saws and such) and some stencil patters. You transfer the patter to the pumpkin then spend about an hour per carving to do it. Dont forget the time you will need to find a good pumpking, cut it open, scoop all the crap out, and then you have to separate the seeds so you can cook them for later.

haha, nice try buddy. I refuse to carve one if it will be placed outside. the squirrels will have a field day with it and all my hard work will be wasted. Mine stays in the house, near a window so it can be appreciated.

sort of....(Halloween oriented)

What is with this seemingly new ghost configuration I keep seeing? Usually it is a few ghosts with their arms together around a tree. Did I miss something?

BTW great pumpkins (again)....now that I know they are inside...I am looking forward to breaking glass with my bat in addition to the pumpkins.......I mean.... you going out Thursday evening....I mean....ummmm... nice pumpkins.

Pumpkin is actually a funny word pump + kin and there are seeds.......ok....

Im done, what about those [email protected]#ing stupid-ass looking ghosts?
