A-May-zing Birthday Wrapping Up…

28th May 2012

Ok, so my birthday may have started in Grand Central, but it continued for a week!

We hung my birthday banner…

And threw a party, everywhere

and lit wishing candles all over the city, that week!

And when the candles got too beat up…

we simply got some more!

And when those candles started a fire that was a little too big….

we just made safer candles!

and the forest thankful for not being burnt

And I was thankful to be with the lady I love

And the people I love

but I felt like one was missing

Thats when James brought me a present…A very big present!

And I lived happily 27 years afterI’m so happy with the way things are that it’s fucking sickening.

Oh, sorry. I mean it’s just regularly sickening… Are you exhausted from all my birthday posts?

This guy sure is….


14th November 2011

Back around Halloween, my friend Derek and I went on a hunt around the artificial pumpkin patches of Los Angeles for the perfect sized pumpkins to carve and place on our heads.

The process was really simple and fun…and a bit of a mess.

Derek documented the process I used to make mine, with his iPhone.

Heres how to fit yourself for a pumpkin mask:

  1. Cut the pumpkin as if it were a slice of pie, from the bottom to midway up the back of where you plan on the face being
  2. Rip out its pumpkin guts (do NOT eat them raw. It tastes like organic garbage vomit) and scrape it until its shallow/ lightweight
  3. Try fitting your head into the pumpkin.
  4. If it doesn’t fit at first, cut WIDER but not higher to the stem of the pumpkin. (I say this because Derek cut his pumpkin head too high up and had a hard time keeping it from falling off.)

A series of poor choices are illustrated in this image, actually…

Heres some tips on making your face:

  • Cut 1 hole where you think an eye should go
  • put the pumpkin on your head, and mark where you plan on cutting the other with the assistance of a pen and a mirror.
  • The less space you cut open, the less people can see your face, the creepier the head becomes.

Wearing a pumpkin mask is SO fun! You can do so many things in disguise like:

Get all of your shopping done*

Practice your football tosses in the house

Go on a hot date.

Take fun photos

Get too drunk on your date and cry because no one can see you!
