halloween and stuff

Happy Halloween, boils and ghouls.  I carved a pumpkin on Sunday…or I attempted to.  It turned out crap ’cause I tried to get fancy with it by shading and highlighting and…no.  Carving isn’t as easy as it might seem at first.  Maybe if I had a couple of pumpkins to practice with, I could have gotten the hang of it but my hand started cramping so I just gave up.  Anyway, here’s some pictures of the gutting process.

Our stray cat who adopted us wanted to help.  “Here, gimme that knife.  Let me show you how to do it.”

Glowing with a candle inside.  I won’t post pictures of the disaster I carved.  As someone who graduated from art school, there’s no excuse for the mess I made.
So, we had a costume contest at work today.  I was a vintage football player.
I had fun with it.  Someone had to!  I work with a bunch of losers who didn’t want to dress up.  Fat roll!
But a few people did, so that was good.  I didn’t feel like a total idiot.  Me and a gypsy woman.
Her fangs didn’t show up but she was a vampire.  Look at those stems.
I’m such a friggin’ jock.
