Happy Hallowe'en!!

Miles was going to post this, 'cause it was an idea that he and Scrog had initially, but he doesn't have very many people on his journal yet, and I want everyone to see it so... yeah. He can still post it to his journal if he wants but I'm posting it here first :P Scrog carved a pumpkin for Hallowe'en and this is it.

Alex DeLarge,of Kubrick's take on Anthony Burgess' 'A Clockwork Orange'. Although maybe 'A Clockwork Pumpkin' is more apt? :P

Anyways, Jei and Scrog have been without power or phone/internet service since Saturday due to the major snowstorm that hit the east cost of the US at the weekend, and the guys in charge are saying it could be Wednesday or later before service gets restored D: I've been keeping in touch with them by text, but DAT PHONEBILL. I'm kinda sad because I usually spend Hallowe'en doofing with Jei on Second Life or at least derping it up on Skype, but oh well. They have a generator at least, so they're not gonna freeze or anything. It's just kind of sucky and I hope the family gets it back soon. This is the second major outage they've had in a couple of months, the last one being Hurricane Irene, which I was there for :D;;

As for me, I'm trying to get stuff moving over here. I'm signing back on at the Job Centre on Wednesday, and then going to a volunteer meeting on Thursday, and in the meanwhile I've been applying for jobs, paid and voluntary. It's hard enough to even get volunteer work at the moment with so many people out of work, but hopefully some seasonal/Xmas work is coming up?

Okay, gonna bail now so Miles can keep doing... whatever the heck he's doing. Taking over my life, I think D: Nah, it's cool. Catch ya later, guys! Happy Halloweeeeeee'en!

All in all, I'm glad you've reached this phase already.

I used to keep warring with my Alternate, till I realized I should let him live comfortably and ignore his antics. Caused a lot of grief initially too

Well, it's been a year and a half now, so yeah, things seem to have settled. Miles and I pretty much have completely separate lives and tend to alternate in 'fronting', usually about 5-6 days each, just doing our own thing. Miles has friends and interests of his own (despite stealing like half my friendslist one drunken night, lol), so I generally just let him get on with it. *Shrug*

I have to compliment you on your progression as well. My warring lasted nearly a

Yeah but does'nt it get annoying when the alternate's interests and actions screw up your alt's done some stuff I would'nt normally flirting and stuff like I told you before

We don't share many interests, so we're not really in each other's business too much to screw it up. There's been a couple of times, and there's a few things we can't seem to agree on... like how he wants to get a couple of piercings and I really really don't @_@ But yeah. We're doing okay.

Well, well, well, well. If it isn't fat, stinking billygoat Fly-Boy in poison. How art thou, thy globby bottle of cheap, stinking chip-oil? :P

Seriously though, that pumpkin is badass. :D

Have a good Halloween yourself, I shall be chained to the kitchen as I am every Halloween, a candy-dispensing slave for the children's sake. (sigh)

Haha, yeah, it's pretty badass for something done in the space of a few hours. I prefer the book over the movie, but Alex just has such an iconic look in the film so yeah ^^ It was a good theme.

No kids trick'o'treating here! XD Because I live in a tiny veeeery remote village full of retired people. So no one ever comes by. If anyone does, well, they'll be out of luck because I have no candy :P

Happy Halloween! Glad you're all okay and everything, shame that Jei's been stuck in that snow storm, I know a friend who is in similar circumstances. That pumpkin looks absolutely amazing as well, good on Scourge for managing that. How have you been in yourself recently? You definitely seem a lot more relaxed and rested since you came home from America actually, I'm glad :) good to see that you Mum is doing a little better too!

Hey! Good to hear from you, and I'm glad you've been sorting out your 'bonds stuff ^^ That's good.

I've gotta say it's really nice to be back in a quiet environment... I've gotten SO much better sleep since I got home. Kinda lonely though, since I don't really know anyone around this area and I don't have a job or anything to keep me busy. Which is why I'm trying to at least get some volunteer work for now.

I'm glad you're feeling better ^^ sorry I took so long to reply btw, Year 11 is fun... not xD Yeah, voluntary work is fun. I did 3 months at the Cat's Protection League for my D of E, it was good. I don't think I could do it forever though (Shadow's not too sure about cats).

Speaking of which, I had another weird Mephiles dream last night. Miles made an appearance in it, actually. ^^

Raddest pumpkin ever, Jai!

It's so cool I mistook the one on the right for a photograph or portrait! Definitely not a carved pumpkin, that's for sure!

Aww, really? XD I'll let Scrog know. He'll be pleased with the compliment!

Not a compliment— it's the truth!

I can't believe I forgot to wish you. Happy Halloween, or perhaps, I hope you had a nice Halloween. And that is some smoking work you did on the pumpkin there. Nice.

Thanks! Not my work but Scrog's, but I'll pass on the compliment (:
