Best Halloween Prop Ever!

Here it is again; proof that truth is stranger than fiction. Seems that a Delaware woman who committed suicide by hanging herself from a tree was left for hours because passers-by thought it was a Halloween prank. Get the whole story here.

Log of Pain

So, it seems my house requires blood sacrifices to be happy. Several times during the course of my kitchen recontruction, did the fell building demand payment, and again now during crunch time for Halloween. IT Princess (aka Resident Evil) backed into an open electrical socket, getting a very pleasurable 110v directly to the spine. Mr. October did his best to slice off his fingerprints with a speed square. Yesterday, however, while running down my basement stairs to retrieve some faux rock paint to bring to Mr. October, I drove a good size roofing nail into the ball of my foot. Mrs. Prince of Darkness was rather upset when I handed her a hammer and asked her to remove said spike from said foot. Unfortunately, I didn't have the presence of mind to take any really good pictures of the rather significant (at least in my mind) amout of blood coming out of my foot. It's not a critical injury, it just slows me down a bit in my quest to finish up the scarecrow cross and church window BEFORE Halloween, as opposed to AFTER.

Red Eyed Demon

I have been meaning to put this picture up for quite some time now. I have included a cropped small version here. Use the link to get a better sense of how huge this thing really is. The statue was once used in a movie and now sits in a back yard in Mt. Laurel, NJ. I love it, but I am not your average neighbor, either. The eyes glow red - as do several of the New Jersey residents that live nearby who have tried various legal gymnastists to get the statue out of sight. I would have it in the front yard and have mock sacrifices on Saturday nights.
