You might have noticed, this blog has been as still as tomb over the past few weeks. It isn’t as if I was waiting for Halloween to write again–on the contrary, midterms were keeping me frighteningly busy! But, while I did manage to completely bomb one test, this semester has been quite insightful so far. (I finally see how this interdisciplinary approach I’ve been on will lead to a career. Yey! I’m not just wasting all my money on tuition!) So, all of this insight should, eventually, translate over to my blogging. It’ll be wicked, I promise!
For now, I’m still trying to de-stress after a tough week, while simultaneously getting ready for the Halloween fun tonight. Tomorrow, I can start catching up on more serious work. Today is a day for mischief and merriment. So, here are a few Halloween goodies to get you in the spirit of things!
Let’s start with costumes… what’s the scariest?

Then, we have pumpkins to carve! This pumpkin is easy to carve… no seeds, no pulp, no mess, no knives needed… unlike the half a dozen real pumpkins sitting on my porch, waiting to be hacked open:

Finally, we can’t forget the cat bowling. Yea, gotta have cat bowling.
To bowl, hit the spacebar when the arrow is pointing in the right direction. The rules and scoring are the same as in regular bowling. I wish you the best of luck… I seem to be about as good at bowling with cats as I am with the real thing. That is, not very.
I have one more comic strip to share, but it isn’t really Halloween themed, so I’ll save it for tomorrow. Thanks to my friend Sara for sending me the two game links. To everyone else, have a Happy Halloween!
