Halloween open thread

The afternoon’s gotten a bit busy. Will be back to blogging later this evening.

Before I go, how many of you out there are good at carving out pumpkin faces? I’ve never had much success with it myself, but enjoy watching others work their magic with ’em. I usually just grab a magic marker and draw faces on the pumpkins I put outside :"> (~~)

She calls herself a ‘speed carver,’ taking about 16 seconds to carve a normal design on a scooped-out pumpkin. (AP Photo/Toby Talbot)
