Yes, you read right. No pumpkins. None. Zip. Nada. It's Hallowe'en and there are no pumpkins. :(

I went out hunting for a pumpkin last night to do me some carvin'. I enlisted my father's enthusiasm in the search (don't ask me how) and we all went hunting for one last night. In two grocery stores--the large ones. No pumpkins.

There were candy canes. Snow. Eight bloody reindeer and a fat man molesting a chimney, but no pumpkins! D:

I bought a loaf of bread in protest. *chews a bite of it irritably*

In other news, my mum's bank was broken into and the thieves stole ~$300 000. Haven't been caught yet as far as I can tell. Sneaky.

I'm bored and I have nothing to do tonight. :( I think that means I'm on candy duty, but who's really going to come around this year? o.O; Are there even children left in these parts? @.@;

Class is over soon, going now. ^_^

I work at a grocery store (well, the drug store part of it, Jewel Osco) and we had Christmas stuff out at the beginning of October. And quick fact, it's 6 retail months from the 4th of July to Christmas.
Yeah, I died a bit inside.

:( That makes me even more sad. It's not even Thanksgiving yet and they've skipped right over to Christmas. I don't like all the magic left in my world to come from the shininess of my Visa. :(

You said it hadn't been Thanksgiving yet ;p

*blink* I did---I DID! Haha oh wow, I totally forgot we already had that! ;p My Thanksgiving was even more mundane than normal mundane days this year, maybe that's why.

Hah, yeah, mine wasn't the norm for me either... what with being all domestic like and roasting the boyfriend a duck...

I never did ask if this ended up with the sexy little apron and little/nothing else that you said you might find?

Couldn't find an apron, so I ended up wearing one of his shirts and no pants

Did you find any? Didja look? :(
Ryugoryu482 on October 31st, 2006 07:03 pm (UTC)
Yeah there were pumpkins around here, but I live near farms and stuff.
Stephaniemirroredsakura on October 31st, 2006 10:22 pm (UTC)
There's a plot about five minutes away that grows them. I haven't seen them this year though. :(

holy crap $300 000? Your Mom wasn't working that shift was she? :(

Yeah I know about the Hallowe'en thing. I went to the drug store the day after Hallowe'en to buy cheap candy and they had all their Christmas stuff up already. Le Sigh. I hate Christmas shopping I always spend too much money.

We got our pumpkin super early this year.

I could've sworn I replied to this. :( But no, it happened during the night, around 2 in the morningish? Manager found out a little while later while making her rounds, I think.

And hehe, I was out in the grocery stores before Hallowe'en, and all I could find was those really gross pumpkin bubblegum things. :\ Figures. ;p

Is is actually a bank that your mom owns or just where she stores her $$??

Oye - there were SO many pumkins here! But I didnt get to celebrate Halloween Anyway due to not one, but TWO freaking exams on Nov 1rst. Sucks >_<
Stephaniemirroredsakura on November 9th, 2006 01:27 am (UTC)
Aww nooo.

I feel your pain, I had an exam on Hallowe'en night last year. And last year was... um. Less than nice. >.>;

But no, my mom works as a teller at the bank so it's been busy. ^_^;
