I know the healthy thing to do with these big emotions would be to call a friend, talk them out, reflect, take a bath, do some yoga, but no... I decided to get pumpkin drunk, metaphorically and literally. Tis' the season am I right?
I showed Derek my little postcard and told him I wanted to celebrate. Derek and I got out our pumpkin supplies: A pumpkin, pumpkin carving kit, and of course pumpkin head, a favorite local seasonal beer.
I think we did a pretty kick ass job carving it. We decided to skip the level 1 recommended stencils and went straight for level 2...just sayin'
This is when Derek left to visit a friend. I decided to continue the pumpkin trend of the night by cooking pumpkin chocolate chip cookies.
And then ate 1 or 4.
While I was baking I put in, The Graduate because I've got about 40 more movies I need to watch to cross off #15: Watch 8 of Time magazine's top 50 movies of all time and that was one of them. I couldn't have chosen a better time to watch The Graduate. I could totally relate to the pressure and expectations that Dennis Hoffman goes through in the beginning. The whole Mrs. Robinson thing I couldn't relate with, that would be weird, but the rest of it I got.
This one quote from the movie particularly spoke to me: It's like I was playing some kind of game, but the rules don't make any sense to me. They're being made up by all the wrong people. I mean no one makes them up. They seem to make themselves up.
Then after the movie I wanted more pumpkin. So I baked the pumpkin seeds.
