Pumpkin abuse & ‘Damnit mum, I told you to get a small one!’

Abi: It’s that time of year… Before I go any further, I just want to point out to our American chums that Halloween is nowhere near the big deal it is in the Yooessay. It’s more of a weak nod as opposed to the full on, horn tooting TA DAAAA! it is for you guys.

If I’m really honest, Halloween in the UK is rapidly approaching something representing a celebration for the patron saint of petty crime and mindless vandalism. It is also possibly the only time of year I make soup that smells better than it tastes.

I opted out of balancing this on various parts of my anatomy, unlike Someone I could mention. There are many things I envy about Seb and now I think we can confidently add “Nasal balancer of Nature’s Candy” to that list. Or perhaps just “sensationalist fool”.

Seb: As painful as it looks.

Mix of grimace and grin.

A homage to week 2.

I really don’t want to talk about this one. It really, really hurt. Let’s just say this wasn’t the first photo, and I was well aware that my nose might get pushed up into my brain…

But hey, it’s 52. Happy Halloween.
