The stages of my 2011 Jack o'lantern.

Left: Shortly before Halloween
Center: During that October snow we had
Right: Tonight
Future: ?

And for those of you who never figured it out, it's the Misfits logo. That's what I was going for anyway. I feel like the average person probably thought it was some 6-year old's attempt at a scary face though. Also, you shoulda seen the flies on this pumpkin. Every day they'd just occupy the thing. At one point I brushed one off and it just fell to the stoop and sat there. It was alive, but it was just lazy as fuck, probably too full of pumpkin guts to even move.

Oh, and about that storm. For the record, Providence was spared. We had a slushy inch of snow that melted quickly. Meanwhile all we were hearing was horror stories from NYC, CT, Mass., and everywhere else. Wind, snow measured in feet, power out for days, Halloween postponed... the whole thing just wrapped around Rhode Island, though. Didn't even have to shovel, the sun did all the work.

You are much better at carving pumpkins than I am. What started as a scary face kind of turned into the smiley face from the Walmart commercials.
