I carved my pumpkin!

I outdid myself this year!

Yep. Other side. It’s really that bad. I so suck at this.

Happy Hallowe’en, folks!

I’m in mourning. No one told me Time Team was canceled! 🙁

>>shakes head more in sorrow than in anger<<

What happens when you pet them too much.


Elegant carving, Stoaty!

You let your children loose on your streets to ask for sugary items from strangers? Are you all nuts?

Well it’s a pretty little pumpkin from this side. Did Uncle Badger grow it?

I didn’t have any trick-or-treaters tonight, but I didn’t really expect any. Brought chocolate though, just in case. Good chocolate, too. Husband’s favorite kind 😉

Went outside on my deck just before 8 pm to watch the International Space Station pass overhead. This was the third time I’ve seen it go by. Kinda fun. Very bright, and moving faster than you’d think.

Hi Weasie,

Used to blog on the Moronosphere at Falstaff’s Bastard. You were kind enough to drop by the squat a time or two. Been puzzling on Benghazi.

Obama, for all his faults, is too smart to say he gave an order that he didn’t give. CIA says it wasn’t them that denied assistance, State says it wasn’t them.

Who then?

One perp: Jarrett. Word is she denied the Bin Laden hit three times due to political concerns. This has her scent all over it (if I may use a mustelid allusion) and she apparently loves the title of ‘defacto president’.

Could you do up a graphic portrait mash-up of her and Obama? You are the best in the business.

For what it’s worth, though a proud Canadian, I have kin south of the 49th and deeply wish the scourge of Obama to be gone.

Also, nice pumpkin.



Could yoou

At least you’re not trying to carve a turnip like they did originally. That would take some real talent.

Caliban – I remember you. Do you need it for something specific? I mean, do you need a certain size or anything?

The problem with facial mashups is that you often end up with something that looks like neither of them. In this case, though, if you went with the official portrait of Obama and put her face on it, it might work.

The other possibility that might explain some of the weirdness is if they were doing something they shouldn’t oughta in Libya, like running guns to the rebels in a big (unauthorized) way.

Some of the theories are getting pretty out there, but that’s what happens in an information vacuum.

Not a single trick-or-treater last night. Kids are so lazy these days!

Jokes on them, because we give AWESOME candy, which I will now eat myself.

If you know the ways of the bureaucrat, you know how something can be denied without anyone saying no.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
