Ok, here's a last minute tip for those pumpkins. We buy these pumpkins on the last trip to the cottage, and they are pretty for the fall. Now, on Halloween, we want to carve them. All of a sudden our kids run away! Last year we managed to trap and blackmail two of them! They all whine -- oh I don't like the gunky insides! Whoops, I have a drunken party to go to!
So now I was stuck with the damn pumpkins. So this is the great suggestion from a friend. Charge up your cordless drill and stick on a 1/4 inch drill. Look at your pumpkin and rotor off the bottom at high speed. Don't touch the top. Take the big spoon and goop things out the bottom. Take your pumpkin face off the internet and quickly draw it. Use the drill as a router and zoom through the pattern at lightning speed. Trim the edges. Place your pumpkin on a battery candle. Woo wooo!
Water polo this weekend and I got great video. Here's the first quarter, and there's more on the site.
