Pumpkin Carving 101

I bought a pumpkin the other night with Steve so that I could carve the hell out of it. I honestly don’t remember ever carving a pumpkin with my family, except for last year when I watched my sister do one for my neice. Totally odd hey?
Anyhow, I bought this glorious book of patterns and decided on an Igor science theme for my first pumpkin. I always wondered how the hell people carved pumpkins with such intricate patterns. We used to have this contest in elementary school where they would make a pumpkin display of all the pumpkins that kids carved. Well I can tell you right now that pretty much everyone had their pumpkin carved by their parents. There’s no way a kid can carve an entire scene from The Little Mermaid on the face of a pumpkin!

I didn’t know how my pumpkin was turning out because it’s really hard to tell when you’re just slashing away at the prncil marks, but I almost pooped a hammer when I lit a candle inside and saw what I had done:

AWESOME! I just hope someone doesn’t steal it or smash it!

    Yeah, that pretty much rules Pumpkin World.

    Now that you are Queen, you can abolish seeds and threaten Pie or Soup torture for the criminal element of the vegetable patch

    Ultra: Criminal vegetable patch?! I guess that’s what I’m bound to get into since I don’t eat meat!
