On Saturday we held what is fast becoming our annual pumpkin carving party. We grabbed some expats, threw them in a room with some pumpkins, sharp implements, and alcoholic beverages.
This was the result...
There were vomiting pumpkins, carved drinking vessels, roasted pumpkin seeds and plenty of scooped-out oozy flesh. My funny old pumpkin-shaped cake turned out just fine (if a little peach coloured due to my lack of excitement over orange food colouring additives).
We completed the evening with pizza and "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown".
Sally Brown: Do I get to go trick-or-treating this year, big brother?
Charlie Brown: Sure, Sally.
Sally Brown: Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy! How do we do it?
Lucy Van Pelt: All you have to do is walk up to a house, ring the doorbell and say "Tricks or treats."
Sally Brown: Are you sure it's legal?
Lucy Van Pelt: Of course it's legal.
Sally Brown: I wouldn't want to be accused of taking part in a rumble.
Are you ready to rumble?
