Okay guys, I led you astray. I carved no pumpkins last night. I had no energy after schlepping my belongings to my new abode. I did, however, eat sushi and pumpkins have indeed been purchased. This morning. On my way to work. Because I honestly felt guilty that I had so fully intended to carve mini-jack-o-lanterns and then done utterly none of it, that I bought them on my way into work to appease the guilt. I know, I'm sort of neurotic. But look! Aren't they beautiful? Who could carve pumpkins like these anyways. Not me, as I lack the proper instruments I realized.
The Loop, and it was good, affordable, delicious sushi. I highly recommend. The fact that it's dangerously close to my new abode is either a bonus or a curse. Only time will tell.
