pumpkin patch update: ok, so i'd given up on my backyard vines, with halloween only a few weeks to go & no pumpkins.. :( but today i noticed the female blossom was all bloomed & pretty, & 20' or so away a nice healthy male blossom lookin' for a little love.. :D there's no way these 2 were gonna get together anytime soon, what with our sleepy bees or whatever has been the problem, so anyway.. pumpkin sex has been achieved!! *sits back & smokes a cigarette* ok, so we may get a xmas pumpkin, but at this point i'll take it. wish us luck! btw my toyroom is all ready for halloween.. http://friendlyghost.typepad.com/photos/friendly_ghost_photo_albu/toy-room-halloween-17x.html

i must admit i am not good with full moons, i've definitely felt like biting someone.. had to take it into rpg land, where it seemed perfect to join the companions in skyrim & let aela turn me, then i went off to eat the hearts of as many silver hand members as i could find & slaughter.. i feel a little bit better i guess. not really. http://friendlyghost.typepad.com/photos/friendlyghoststuff/skyrim-2.html http://brensgumbyland.com/ghostpix.html i'm worried about snug now, i have to take her to another vet appt. tomorrow. she needs regular medical attention, rxs & injections, but it's hard for me to even go there, as important as it is. i avoid all the human interaction i can irl. it only ever seems kinda safe online. anyway the next day is the fall friends of the library booksale downtown so that will be like a reward for getting through tomorrow? when i'm focused on books i'm oblivious to humans around me. the great pumpkin will pass over my pumpkin patch this halloween, as it still has no pumpkins whatsoever, we went out there with a paintbrush prepared for a little pumpkin sex, but realized we only have male blossoms, no female ones to help fertilize. it's too late anyway. but our halloween album is all updated now with this year's new pix: http://www.brensgumbyland.com/halloween.html i tweeted my pix to a certain horror host (he approved) :D https://twitter.com/GhostAtTheGate/status/914640889301016576 we're starting work on the mystery house, but soon it will be too cold to work on it downstairs. even in warm clothes my hands go numb working in the toy room once there's ice & snow. the seasons turned very fast here, it's cold. time to get ready for winter. books will help me. i hope. p.s. i need bloodborne 2. c'mon! who am i kidding, i'm beyond help.. for so many reasons.
