    Smile Pumpkins!

    Have any of you carved up a pumpkin for the halloween that's happening today?

    I did mine last night. Considering this is my second time carving one, and the last time i carved one was about 10 years ago, I'm pretty satisifed with my work.

    Here's a photo - http://mikey.ws/carved.jpg


    It's been cleaned up since that photo was taken, the mouth is still on a heavy angle, But it's lookin' pretty bitchin'.


    Post photos of your pumpkin purchasing and carving efforts here.

    Never carved a pumpkin before. Never, ever. In my life. Never.
    All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.

    Yeah, we keep bottles and cans in there. Then take them all in to the grocery store and buy ice cream with the cash.

    Not as funny as watching two vans pull up, one full of black garbage bags (filled with cans) the other full of people because of the $25 per person per day limit here in MI. 8 people with 2 bags each, probably close to $200 those people took back that day. I got a chuckle out of it.

    You can never be too busy to carve a pumpkin! I never got around to taking pics of mine this year, but they weren't that special.
