Halloween Eve

The sun is slowly setting on my lovely home of Sin City as I write, and the smell of pumpkin is extremely strong in my house. Next to me is a wastebasket half filled with pumpkin guts from the 9 pumpkins I've gutted so far (7 are mine) and two more of my friends pumpkins sit on the porch waiting for the violence to come.
Protip: Walmart sold this pumpkin gutter drill bit for about 6 bucks, and it does a majority of the work in a quarter the time: blasted through the three largest pumpkins in about an hour, and the other 6 took an hour and a half total. Put that on your Day-After-Halloween shopping list. 
The dining room smells heavily of clover and cinnamon, and Witch Jars sit awaiting tea-lights.
Tonight I will carve, and sip sparkling Pumpkin Apple cider from Fresh N' Easy, and watch some old Vincent Price movies, some new Tim Burton Movies, and listen to lovely music such as the track from the video above. I will put the finishing touches on the display pre-setup, and on my costume pieces. I will prepare the treat bags for my few TOTs, Light Candles, and enjoy the holiday I'm known for.

I will post a few more times tonight, with pictures, and music, and other wonderful-ness, but tomorrow, might be barren and quiet. Or I'll be sharing everything under the sun.
Check Up with us tomorrow for a list of required viewing, a reminder of the rules, The reveal of the Hunter that most influenced this years display and their herb bottle in my HoF, and the first pictures of my display.

Now If you will excuse me, I hove more pumpkins to gut.
