Almost November Rain

On Friday - I totally slept! It was amazing.  However the weather here has been awful.  It's been raining since Saturday.  Now the wind is insane - we are supposed to get 100 km/h gusts - don't know what that is in miles per hour - someone look it up for me.  Oh wait - I totally just opened this post talking about the weather.  But seriously - I just checked the weather and it's supposed to rain until Friday.  Lame.  Can we blame Sandy?  I think so.  Or can we.....

Yes - I went there!  But come on - you liked Milli Vanilli a little right?  I did.  Even though they fooled us all.  However weather like this just makes you want to listen to the extended version of November Rain - am I right?  Here you are - you're very welcome.

And since we've busted out old GNR - we might as well throw on some Garbage just to even things out.

Well now that you've got your full mix of rainy day tunes - how about some festive hallowe'en pictures - because to be honest this weather has sucked out any ounce of creativity in me.  So I hope you'll take what I am offering - because this is about it.

Say Hi to Frank - the Jack Frank o Lantern.  I carved him to life on Saturday.  I free handed that shizz.  Impressed? 

Last year we hosted a Pumpkin Carving Party so we thought we'd do the same this year.   Who am I kidding - I decided we were going to host another one.  I enjoy it so much I want to host one until I am too old to even lift a pumpkin.

Here is our collection of Jacks and a Frank.

Can you spot the jack o lantern? It's a tough one. 

Oh and while you're here - why don't you enter this giveaway?  Because you love me.  And I love my sponsors.  Speaking of sponsors - can I shamelessly post this again?

Check out the deets here! 


  1. It's like rayyyy-eeee-ain on your weddin day.

    Ok. That's my rain song for you. And it's Canadian to boot. Yay!!

    Someone posted a pic of me on FB and I called myself a moon face. Must be an October thing. Even though I don't think your face looks like a frank-o-lantern. Hopefully I get skinnier in November. Not likely considering Americans make it their job and personal mission to eat their way through the new year. And I'd hate to be unamerican.
