halloween and stuff

Since I've tried to tone down the "I don't give a fuuuuuck about holidays" stuff I'm usually going on about this time of year and went ahead and carved pumpkins, I figured maybe I can jumpstart another quick gasp of Halloween spirit via a cute survey my lovely friend Karen posted on her blog!  (Man, I am a curmudgeon!  Oh well.)

Five costumes I’ve worn:
1.  Black cat.  Hiss!
2.  Queen Amidala from Star Wars.  Let's just pretend that didn't happen, shall we?
3.  Jedi.  Terena and I definitely made our own Jedi costumes once.  It wasn't for Halloween, but hey, this question didn't specify!
4. Tim Kasher of the band Cursive.  So, yeah, this was just knee-length cut-off jeans, a flannel button-up shirt and a pair of flip-flops, and no one knew who the fuck I was, but I managed to have fun with it anyway.  I asked my schoolmates who they thought I was dressed up as, and my favorites were "Eminem" and "a lumberjack."  I wasn't aware Eminem wore flannel, or that lumberjacks wore shorts, or that either of them wore flip-flops...
5. A giraffe. Because they're adorable!

Four costumes I’d like to wear:
1.  A viper pilot from Battlestar Galactica.  Because it strikes me as easy and just nerdy enough to bring me joy.  Also I would totally love to be a viper pilot.
2.  Katniss from the Hunger Games.  Costume difficulty, 1-10: 4.  Costume awesomeness:  10.
3.  An astronaut.  Complete with moon boots, please.
4.  Wonder Woman.  Duh.  Easy.  I would need a wig and some more self-confidence, but yeah!

Three things I’m afraid of:
1.  Nothing.
2.  Nothing.
3.  Nicholas Cage.
(uh, also you can replace 1 and 2 with "death" and "packs of raccoons," I just like to make myself laugh at my pseudo-machoness.)

Two favourite types of candy:
- Almond Joy (!!!)
- Butterfinger

My number one favourite thing about Halloween:
- Carving pumpkins.  I love getting my hands messy, so scoopin' out the guts always makes me grin like a crazy toddler!

Oh, speaking of which, look at what we did!

I did the companion cube (which didn't come out as awesome as I had hoped, and I blame the flimsy grocery-store pumpkin carvers!), Jordan did the classic pumpkinface, and Jimmy did the killer Mockingjay symbol.  Maybe I'll manage to steal a picture of the three lit up on our porch!  

Did any of you carve pumpkins this year?  If so, I wanna see!  Sharing is caring, you know.  ;)
