Happy Halloween! My wife is a GPS!

Check out this costume I made for my wife. She has a costume party at work today and we think there is also a costume contest. We heard prizes would be given out to the most original and travel related. So we put our heads together. Our first two ideas were a Stewardess and Backpacker. I think those were both pretty good...the GPS idea actually didn't come about until we were looking for supplies in Target. I think it's pretty good.
Too bad I don't have a costume...yet. Hopefully, I'll do better than last year--a bunch of newspapers taped to a blazer. I don't know what I was supposed to be...uncomfortable, hot, and stiff (could barely move my arms).
Happy Halloween!

The Great Jack O Lantern Blaze

My wife and I went to the Great Jack O Lantern Blaze in Croton on Hudson, NY last night. It was awesome.

I still have no idea how some of those pumpkins didn't collapse in on themselves. Some of them looked like they had more holes on them than pumpkin. I think there was about 4,000 pumpkins total. They used pumpkins in ways that I had never imagined. They had chandeliers, dino-sculptures, a giant spiderweb, pirates, fish, and much more.
I am definitely going next year.
Check out this video from the blaze blog. This shows more of the cooler stuff that I was unable to capture with our camera.

Hell Yeah! This is going to be awesome!

This looks freaking insane! Hopefully I can convince my wife to take me to the first showing of this!

Looking Into My Idea Book

That's right I have one of those. It actually has not been getting as much use as it should be. Instead I've been forgetting all of the gems that I am constantly coming up with. I guess you could say that my memory rivals that of Maurice L. Pogue. I'm not saying that because I saw it was on tv today. Anyway...One of the ideas that I saw written down struck my as particularly funny. The entry read:

A story about food turns into a sad story like Old Yeller.

Now I'm really not sure how that could literally be done. If it was literally done I think it would be pretty stupid. I'm not talking about food as people.

What are your thoughts?

The JB Special Blog

Check out JB's blog coming straight from the Heart of Costa Rica (that's what he has been calling himself lately). This is a link to an entry that he wrote about how he paid people 5 cents to complete him. He's pretty wacky. How would have thought that that's all you'd have to pay to get a completement?
