Pumpkin Parables

So I have decided to shove the International Law assignment for tonight. Is after all, a FRIDAY. Everyone's out and partying, so I consider I've been pretty decent in comparison.

Anyhow, HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Haha, it's my first real halloween ever, and I'm pretty high now that I've had my first pumpkin carving experience! - I don't supposed skinning the pumpkin from PEI really counted. Did this one together with Emma and Tina, and we're pretty darned proud of how it turned out:

Good, eh? satisfied

Canada seems to have a lot of fun little holidays to celebrate... although Halloween took a slightly less-fun turn when Emma and I went a-hunting for costumes yesterday, only to discover that everything was exceedingly expensive. Boo.

But that's not going to rain on my pumpkin parade! Enjoy the following photoblog:





Tina and Emma with the pre-scarified pumpkin.





Me getting the strings and seeds out of the pumpkin. The insides of a pumpkin smell a surprising lot like persimmon.





The Dalhousie Crest! Done by a couple of the other guys... I was pretty impressed! They really slaved over it and it looks amazing.





The full line-up. Not half bad, considering that most of us international types had never seen a real Halloween before, and were carving our first pumpkins. Keep a lookout for Nemo, Snoopy, and one of my personal favourites, the scary tree.
