I just carved a pumpkin for the kids to look at for Halloween! What a satisfying way to spend an hour on Sunday afternoon. I carved it into a spooky cat like face, hope it does the trick. Anyone else into Halloween? I don`t mean devil worship or the occult, just a bit of scary fun? xx(

Nope.
Hate Halloween with a passion.

Cos I'm a miserable bastard who dislikes kids banging on the doors of people they don't know for sweets. It's scary for a lot of old people. It's just more commercial tat to sell/buy. It's a cheap tacky US import. And I'm a miserable git.

Forget Halloween, celebrate something proper like Guy Fawkes or a proper Christmas.

I'm with you fab...educated terrorism for children, driven by the USA and their stupid 'custom'. I visited Tesco yesterday morning and was astounded at the vast array of temptation and 'please Mum I want...' goods in an aisle, right by the entrance. Total crap Tesco - you get 0/10xx( and screw the people who part with their money for such pathetic tosh.
No harm in carving out a vegetable though - whatever time of year it may be!xx(

Whilst the kids who go out on "Trick or treat" in my street are well-behaved (there are a few adults escorting the kids, so it's more akin to the US version rather than the UK-style begging with menaces), the knock on the door every few minutes does get on my uppers...

Fortunately, the shift patterns in my new job have worked in my favour this year. xx(

I made a very good risotto using pumpkin brains yesterday and made a good lantern effort too.

I'm carving one for a party i can't attend next weekend. I've got to stay at home with the dog because of the fireworks. She's not too bad with em but it's not fair to leave her at home while I'm enjoying myself and all the whizz bangs are going off.

Going to have to either:

A: Take batteries out of the doorbell, or

B: Hand out paintballs as sweets. I have some nice swirly patterned ones sitting around. Look like sweets, feel like they definitely *could* be sweets. Taste bloody awful.
