I have a light up pumpkin on my solar powered mailbox. Does that count?

You grew some? Cool! We tried growing them one year...didn't turn out too well. Glad yours were successful!

They kinda taste like popcorn to me... Do they taste like that to you?

rlands
10/20/13 9:58 am

Hmm...not really. They have a pretty distinctive seedy taste to me.

I toast mine and add salt with tons of butter, so that could be it... :P

Haha I like the popcorn-style pumpkin seeds idea. I just throw on a bit of salt and throw them in the oven.

They're delicious! I wish pumpkins were more available year round. I'd make pumpkin seeds all the time.

rlands
10/20/13 10:05 am

Me too! You can buy them, but they're super expensive and don't taste the same as the ones you make yourself. It makes it more special anyway :)

Yeah, making them is half the fun. And they're more fresh. Like cookies. Nothing beats homemade :)

rlands

Exactly! Now I'm getting super hungry for homemade cookies :P

No, but at our school we have a Pumpkin Chunking where all juniors build catapults and throw pumpkins

That sounds awesome. I'm jealous that your school does that :)

Haha, it seems awesome, but I won't be able to see because I'll be setting up for our Haunted House that night. I'll be lying on a table covered in red paint with someone pretending to be Jason tanning over me with a fake chainsaw

rlands

That sounds almost as exciting as pumpkin catapults! Have a good time :)

WVU's engineering college has an annual Pumpkin Drop, where people compete to drop a protected pumpkin from a tall building & have it land close to a target & unharmed. Maybe not as much fun as watching them ALL go splat, but some do anyway.

rlands

That's really cool too! In middle school we had an egg drop where we did the same thing with eggs off the roof of our school. Not as climactic as with pumpkins, I'm sure.

Minyanko Tumblr
10/20/13 10:41 am

Awesome!! Sounds fun, but I don't think eggs are as fun to clean up! It does make a little sad to see about 50 tasty pumpkin pies go splat though!

Carving pumpkins is so fun :) I think this year mine is too small to carve, unfortunately.

It is fun! That sucks. Are you gonna do anything with it?

rlands
10/20/13 9:55 am

Probably not. Just let it sit there so people can admire it :)

rlands
10/20/13 9:55 am

Or maybe I'll sharpie a face onto it.

Man, I guess I should celebrate the season with more than just pumpkin bread, and pumpkin donuts, and oh! pumpkin scones... :)

Those are good too though! Don't forget pumpkin bagels, pumpkin pie, and pumpkin lattes :)

True, I really want pumpkin bread now! And why are you going to sleep at 1pm? haha

Because I work nights, 7pm-7am. I'd normally be asleep way before now, but you all are just too damned interesting this morning!

rlands
10/20/13 10:03 am

Haha well I apologize for being so interesting :) get some rest! And good luck on sohoa tonight! That'll be really interesting.

Thanks! I'm super nervous but really excited too. I've wanted to give it a shot since Tony first talked about it.

I just got one. I'm not too big on decorating for holidays, but you have to have a pumpkin for Halloween :)

It's not that big of a requirement.

Fine, I guess it's more of a personal goal than a requirement.
