Of Pumpkins and Troll Boogies . . .

We had a big day, October 26th, that included, but was not limited to:

The carving of pumpkins to make Jack-O-Lanterns, the laundry, baths and even the creation of Troll Boogies (pictured below) for a "Harry Potter Party" we would attend later that night. Anyone know why Troll Boogies are a Harry Potter-themed treat?
Lemur was so proud of our pumpkins. I had drawn seven possible faces and he had chosen these two, their names being:
" Shucks"
and "Angry"

We then got ready for the Harry Potter party. As promised here is a picture of the cloak I made for Lemur. The dark circles under his eyes really add that extra "something", don't you think?

My little Emperor Palpatine!

Here is Dave, who most of you will know as "Albert" from our production of Secret Garden. He made his Quidditch robes and matching ensemble all by himself. His wife is a Gryffindor student sans the attack on Hogwarts. That pesky fake blood was running into her eyes all night!
Then there's us, two students from Ravenclaw. I know: we rock, we're so cute.

They had Pumpkin soup, a meat pie and all sorts of goodies. We played "Who (or What) Am I?" (Muad'Dib was Voldemort, and I was Azkaban) and "Harry Potter Scene It" It was good times . . . except that we didn't know anyone except Dave. But Lemur was adorable. He would yell "Suprise!" when anyone knew showed up to the party. And he and Rivulet played with our wands (not pictured. They light up and make sounds, though.)
And actual Halloween, Muad'Dib accidentally took Lemur's cloak to work, so I dressed him up as a pirate and we went to Hastings with my mom to find a book. When we got back, no one was up for Trick or Treating. So we watched Spider Man 3 and went to bed.

It was a good Halloween.

Great looking Jack-os, creative costumes, and thoroughly revolting wand-tips! How did you get the troll to lie still? :) Nice work.

Excellent day/night. Wish I could have done something besides babysit the store though.

As for your title (of your blog site). The question "Who am I" is a question without power to the world outside of ourselves.

Try being here and defining the statement "Who I am". This IS who I am...
