Of Pumpkins and Memes

I'm sick. Flu sick. Why? Because it is one of those weeks, that's why. Luckily (sort of) it hit today so I was able to have a good weekend filled with studying at a fabulous coffee shop right by the house! Being as I live in the 'burbs and there's nothing semi-youthful within a 20 mile radius, this discovery is most delightful. Studying is just funner when it involves Brasilian coffee and good music. The fruitful studying let me have a guilt free fun time at Zainab and Aasem's fabulous pumpkin carving party. And people, you can call my pumpkin carving techniques retarded all you want, its special, and y'all were simply envious. That's my story and I'm sticking to it! Mines the one in the middle. But there were more pumpkins. Many, many more.

Sohnii tagged me! A perfect thing to cheer me up before I zonk out in 3 .. 2...

I was just going to make an anti-Halloween post when I saw your pumpkin. Great carving - we need more pics please.

I am the Halloween Grinch.

Aisha said...

Mystic. thanks :)

Mezba. So have you changed your mind on your anti-H post? lol :) Good idea, I'll upload a few more pics.

mezba said...

Aisha: No, I am still anti-Halloween for many reasons :-). I still await your posts though.

I don't think I've ever seen a meme that asked for color. ROFL.

You know I also LOVE Ugly Betty - but I'm not thrilled that Salma Hayek (the producer), will be guest starring in this week's episode. The whole idea of the show is to go against the fashion industry and society's ideals of women, etc.... And then in the preview I see Salma flaunting her boobs.... Not happy about it.

LOL @ "Are you reading peer presure-er?" That was funny. (I don't have a tattoo either. I've been tempted a few times though.)

And a pumpkin carving party?! Gosh - you get to have so much fun!

Done.
