are you thinkin' halloween?


seems as i get older, the year seems to get shorter, and the time to start thinking about holidays and decorations come and go before you even get a chance to put your mind to it.

and so i ask--have you got your halloween decorations out? are they up? did ya get a pumpkin yet? do you know what you're gonna do with it when you do?

if not, here's some inspiration...

and has anybody been invited to a halloween party? and if so, whaddaya gonna be...?

that's all i got today!
more on friday!
smell ya later!

Those are some great pumpkin carvings. I can't believe its October 10th already - being 95 degrees outside doesn't exactly make it feel Halloween either though. I guess its hard to get in the Halloween mood. And the television isn't exactly showing the marathons that I'd hoped for. Though I keep seeing commercials for Saw 4. Guess who I saw the first Saw movie with?

Going to one on Saturday. And, actually, Brian's end-of-summer cookout last month was one, but I didn't dress up. So that's two for me! I'm not a huge fan of dressing up for Halloween, so I usually just wear a novelty t-shirt, like the "I'M WITH CREEPY" arrow shirt I wore to Brian's. On Saturday I will be wearing a quick-and-easy staked vampire costume my wife bought me. I think she just got sick of being labeled "CREEPY" when we went to these things together.

As Bill mentioned we got a little jump on the Halloween decorations as out house since we went with a Halloween theme for our annual good-bye to summer cook out.

I still have to break out all my Simpson Halloween figures, but the place looks very festive.

Not sure what I want to do yet, but I generally go for something ghastly. For Halloween night itself, My roommate usually dresses as something innocent and/or beautiful, and when the doorbell rings, she'll answer it.

Then I'll step around the door with the bowl of candy, hoping to scare the bejeezus out of the kid or kids. We always get a warm fuzzy of appreciation from the parents on the sidewalk that are laughing their arses off as their children shriek in terror.

Oooooooo...When do we get to tell each other ghost stories? *bounce*

Cool Jack-o-lanterns.
No invites yet.
I hadn't really been thinking about it though.

Anyway, Hope you had a Happy Birthday!

Ah, this will be Lilah's first Hallowe'en and those pumpkins will serve as inspiration for the carving this Sunday. Though probably not as fancy...

I usually end up going as Hunter S. Thompson or Mark Borchardt. Been awhile since I've actually done a "real" costume. I'm lame in that aspect.

Awesome pumpkin carvings, Toddles! I'm suddenly feeling inspired to take a sharp knife to something that will bleed seeds!

Since I don't have time to do a costume this year, I may indulge in some pumpkin carving. I have to do SOMETHING for my favorite holiday. Too bad there aren't any kids in my neighborhood. No tricks, no treats. Sigh.
