“the Great Pumpkin rises out of the pumpkin patch he finds to be most “sincere”. (“Look around you! Nothing but sincerity as far as the eye can see!”) The Great Pumpkin then flies through the air to deliver toys to all the good little children in the world*” 

 

Attention Charlie Browniacs – Its time to celebrate. Get those Tivos and DVRs ready cause tonight at 8pm ABC will be showing “Its the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown“. Yahoo!! (and we don’t mean the website!)

Halloween Bento Box

Halloween bento 10-14-06 
Originally uploaded by pkoceres.

Amazingly everything in this Halloween themed Bento Box* is edible!

*”Box lunches (bento) are very popular among Japanese kids and adults alike. People take them to work, to school, on picnics, and so on.

Half of a typical bento consists of rice, and the other half consists of several side dishes made with such ingredients as vegetables, meat, fish, and eggs. This format allows for infinite variations. The most common side dish is some kind of cooked egg, such as tamagoyaki (omelette strips or squares cooked typically with salt and sugar), fried eggs, scrambled eggs, and omelets with various ingredients. Another perennial bento favorite is sausage. The creator of the bento sometimes makes little cuts in the sausage to make it look like an octopus or other animal, adding to the fun of the meal.”

Pumpkin PC

 

Looks like some of the students over at the University of Arkansas have had a little too much time on their hands. Using a real pumpkin a couple of students created this working Pumpkin PC. Follow the link to find out how exactly they did it. Now what are they planning for Thanskgiving?

10252006p2.gifWOW!  Can it Really be True????
Is todays Peanuts cartoon strip the reprint of
the actual introduction of the Great Pumpkin?!?!?!?!??!

With the passing of Charles Schultz a couple of years ago the local papers out this way (New York) have been running “Classic” Peanuts episodes daily. 

But in todays issue of the Daily News, and on the Peanuts website, todays comic strip seems to feature the first of a series of panels that will introduce the Great Pumpkin!!!! With Halloween less than 1 week away and the replaying of the animated “Its the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown!” on TV this Friday night, this is just a fantastic thrill for this old Charlie Brown fan. This is a real Depends moment!
