Yay! It's my favourite day! Halloween! And just to prove that it's my favouritest day I was up and out of the house by 10.30am (which on my day off is a serious effort) so I could get to my mom's house and start on my pumpkins. That's right, I work on them at my mom's house. Mostly because it means there is a giant pumpkin mess at her house and not at mine. Also my cats remain pumpkin innards free. And these are good things.
The trouble is, every year I end up doing some crazy pumpkin and then the next year I feel like I have to top it. It's silly, but I've been making myself crazy every year doing this. Last year I did two pumpkins. Both were cool and I was happy with them. So, of course, this year I had to do three pumpkins.
I have no fucking idea.
So in no particular order, here they are.

First up is Groucho.

This is one of the monsters from Where The Wild Things Are (my mom wanted one to take to her school with her so I needed to do a kid themed one, otherwise this would have been Johnny Cash. I guess Johnny will just have to wait until next year.)

And finally there's Hawkeye. (I know this makes me a giant dork, but M*A*S*H* has been my favourite show forever.)

Is that Indiana Jones?

Whoa dogg those are lovely. And I really hope the back of Hawkeye's pumpkin had a Martini on it.

Dang now I've got to bust out the DVDs and watch it all again.

Gwenhwyfar said...

Damnit! Why the hell didn't I think of that? Fuck.
And yes, you should watch them all.

I was Hawkeye for Halloween a couple of years ago, so I completely understand the love. Alan Alda as Hawkeye is one of the greatest characters of all time. Sigh.
