Pumpkin Carving

HOLY CATS WHAT HAPPENED?! It's November 1st! I forgot to get a pumpkin and carve it. Halloween has come and gone. This is a tragedy. I ALWAYS carve a pumpkin. Stupid Organic Chemistry! I would have never forgotten to carve a pumpkin if it weren't for you! I'll have to wait a whole year before the opportunity presents itself again. NO! It will not do!

Lucky for me I made an important discovery yesterday. A certain someone, whom shall remain nameless to save him the embarrassment, has not carved a pumpkin in YEARS! Naturally, I declared a state of emergency and pumpkins shall be carved this Friday night. Yes it will be November 3rd, yes most people's pumpkins are smashed all over the street in front of their residence at that point, and yes whatever pumpkins I purchase will probably be half rotted out. That's beside the point. Focus people, someone's lost childhood is at stake here, and my annual artistic outlet has almost passed me by.

Apparently, my wonderful idea of reintroducing my friend into the world of pumpkin carving isn't testimony enough to my own greatness in the art because my talent has been called into question. Our little novice here thinks he can out carve me. The nerve of some people. I'll post some pictures and you can decide.

P.S. Thanks Ogre for providing the venue.

youre going down. to china town. it will be no problem for me to win. it happens all the time, and the sooner you recognize that fact, the sooner you can just give up and recognize me as a superior pumkin carver. i win so much as stuff, people eventually give up trying. that will happen to you. they see my pure determination, and are just like "i'm going to embarass myself if i even try." and then they just walk away. this guy i know, i was talking to his girlfriend, and he was like, "what are you doing?", and i was like, "im stealing your girlfriend", and then he said "okay". he knew that there was no messing with this determination. so, the next time you decide to open your mouth, just know that you could be in for a world of hurt.

Hmmm...all this trash talk seems to be trying to compensate for your lack of actual skill...just a theory.

Sha Na Na,

Of course I don't actually think that Kenny will win! But I have to give him a little hope so he doesn't completely freak out when you kick his a**. You know, a little positive reinforcement now might just keep him from going postal or something when you total out-carve him.

Good Luck (not that you actually need it)

Kenric said...

wow. thank you so much rob. thats just what i needed.

Rob said...

See what a predicament I've gotten myself into! I try to support Kenric, and Sha Na Na gets mad at me. I try to make it up to her, and Kenric gets hurt. Perhaps next time I will just stay out of it. Of course that's no fun. Besides, I like to dig holes and see how far I can get. One day I might make it to China.

Kaityln told me that Sha Na Na won the competion. I do feel this was for the best though because had Kenric won, I'm pretty sure she would have used the pumkin carving tools to cut his head off and make another Jack-O-Lantern out of it.

Now Kenric can take note of this, and hone his skills for next year, and if he hones his self defense skills too, he stands a good chance of winning, and living.

Ok, this comment could be it's own blog, so I'm out.

Congrats to the victorious Bridget! Not that Kenny stood a chance or anything, but I am pleased my supports did not go to waste!

I hope you have your dancing shoes ready. Here comes a Deutsch wedding. I'll bring the Washing Machine.

Just to note. I was not present, so all of my information comes second, if not third hand. So I have nothing to go on except what I'm told.

Now, now children...play nice. Kenric you win for technique and neatness....Bridget you get props for creativity. Let's just love one another huh? HAA HAA... Who's kidding who here... I think Kenric probably kicked butt (he's an artist for goodness sake) and I'm sorry Bridget but I've seen you play Pictionary. :}

Bridget said...

WOW! I'm not even going to address that...oh wait yes I am. You have our conversations saved? That's...um...unsettling. And yes Kate, I'm totally ready to dance it up, I'll bring the laundry detergent!

Kenric said...

it saves it automatically in my trillian program. i didn't know about it until recently, just so you know.

Bridget said...

Uh huh.
