Well folks, I carved a pumpkin this afternoon. Can you guess which one's mine? (I'll give the answer on the blogback, along with which of my parents carved the other two. Happy guessing!)

Now...we've had a lot of serious discussion of late here at the blog, so to lighten things up a bit, here's a question for everyone:

What is your favorite halloween costume that you've worn?

Personally, it's really hard to pick just one (plus I'm limited to "halloween" costumes); I'll have to go with the Garth (from Wayne's World) outfit that I wore in 6th grade. I had the blond hair, drumsticks, ripped jeans, and everything. On top of that, supposedly I did a pretty good impression at the time! Now if only somebody had been Wayne...

BTW, why is it that people enjoy dressing up so much? Honestly, I still think dressing up in different characters is fun! But why??? Is it so that we can hide a part of our real self for a while? Or is it so that we can let our imaginations run wild? For me, I tend to think it's the latter. Perhaps it varies from person to person though. Any thoughts?

Moving on, I can't think of any good halloween stories off the top of my head, but if you have any funny past experiences, you're welcome to share them too!

One last thing...

Everybody likes pretty pictures, so I'll end my postings for the day with this one. It really caught my eye when I first saw it earlier this afternoon, partially because of the beauty and partially because of the amusement. Honestly, it is a fascinating piece of artwork--the imagery is very creative and the painting itself is well done, artistically speaking.

That being said, I also have my reservations about the message it sends. To quote Mark Shea, "No secular messianism here" (sarcasm intended).
