I’m not a horror movie fan. I know loads of people who love them, but for me the myriad of ways a person can die in the course of a two hour movie holds no appeal. The all out slasher trend started with films like the original Halloween and Friday the 13th. I watched them,Continue reading “39 Scary Movies for Halloween”
Halloween, it’s nearly here. For me Halloween, though enjoyable (mostly for the candy and occasional small party), hasn’t been my number one holiday. I know people who live for this little snippet of time in the year and I love how they love it. I envy their enthusiasm for it. I wish I could share it.Continue reading “Carving Out Halloween”
Dear Sebastian… Hi there Mr. We had a really fun time with you the last few days. We got to see you twice on Saturday. We are really lucky. First we went to see you swim again. You are such a great swimmer already. Your Grandmas are really impressed with your skills. Kind of amazingContinue reading “Swimming and the Goats”
It’s been a busy busy weekend. Friday night dinner at Stan and Connie’s, with Stacia, Kev, my honey and I. It was a great time. Excellent food, as always, fantastic company ( I love you guys), and just really relaxing and comfortable. Then yesterday Karen and I headed over to Maggie’s for a pumpkin carvingContinue reading “Busy Weekend”

The reds are up over a point each (yay!)… they couldn’t get a good platelet count because they were clotted (I guess this happens all the time and is common, but has never happened to me), but they could tellContinue reading “On the Verge”

Get Your Carving On Originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl I took this photo walking into a New Seasons. Great pumpkin display going on. We didn’t buy one, but man… wouldn’t that huge one in the center make an awesome jack-o-lantern?
Mom’s Pumpkin Originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl Pumpkin as art. Mom is amazing with the whole pumpkin carving thing. She’s carved one almost every year, and every year I’m amazed.
Creepy Zombie Originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl Phillip in costume. He’s hanging with a tough crowd.
Goblin Originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl Watch out, this guy moves. I know for a fact, since it’s Nate, and I saw it happen. He also takes a sip of beer once in a while.
Ghouls Originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl This is what happens when you stay out in the cold too long trying to surf. Even the wet suit can’t keep you warm enough to keep extreme hypothermia from setting in and getting the best of you.
Pumpkin Face Originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl It was a happy Halloween at Phil and Steph’s house tonight, and it was also scary. Great costumes, creepy music, and scared trick or treaters.
The Selection Originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl Yesterday, Saturday, October 27, was the annual children’s event that some of my work compadres and I work at every year. We man a booth and help little kids to make bracelets. I’ve done it every year for 9 years now. It’s rewarding, and the kids love it.
