The first one is butt ugly.  The whole idea is stupid.  If one must be made, yours at least has character.  I love the eyes, nose arrangement.  He's like Puss in Shrek. And then he's just a hot mess, as signified by his 'shirt'.

@Valleygurlie916 Good point.  And on that scary note, I told my 5-year-old that she was a zombie and she did a perfect impression, including telling me she was going to eat my brains...I swear we have never let them watch anything zombie-related, so I about died!  Zombies are taking over!

@chickieD Yeah, one of those in-home party deals.  My sister used to sell it, so I have a lot of their stuff.  The candles burn really well, which is good since I have a decade supply.

@chickieD @Ethne Hedren Denham Sorry!  Maybe they don't carry it anymore.

@chickieD You can get a teapot tealight holder that's totally rad from Partylite.  I do not sell Partylite, so am not trying to sell you anything, I just have the thing.

Yes, Pintester, I do not see any 50 Shades of Grey, or your books for that matter, but it could just be the 2-D angle.  Tell us you read 50 Shades, tell us!  I, also, was an English Lit major in college, so rock the frack on, yo.

@Hillkat83 Ha!  On the Today Show this morning they were talking about giving personalized bracelets as a gift and one of the "personalizations" you could do, ie charms, was a handcuff.  Hilarious.

@bnkessler Good point.  Plus, snuggies are awesome.  My unborn children, when they were still in-utero, gave me one.  They knew this was a trick cuz then I'd get sentimental about it and would never want to get rid of it because they bought it with their teensy fetal hands.  Their father is sneaky.  More recently (since they're 5 now), I made my mother-in-law wear my snuggie last weekend and that rocked.

Now if only the Pintestes could track down that candy I've determined is the Canadian Cocaine/Pop Rocks Laffy Taffy (this was in conjunction with my convo with Truffles about Sugar Daddy candy) (not its real name, hence the problem), we can crack the code for the world's problems with all our extra energy.

I was hoping, hoping, hoping you'd try this one!!!  I am so glad I won't waste my time this weekend trying to make myself look snooty for my co-workers, who already know better anyway.  Instead, I'll stick with chain-eating (is that a term like chain-smoking?) those little candies instead.  They're like little peppermint devils.

I think you  need to get a Bowdabra and whip up a wire bow and slap it on your wreath.  That would be glorious.  And maybe slap some on your hose and umbrella and broken birdbath to distract the zombies.

@songbird83 @Ethne Hedren Denham Songbird, I am really sorry for your slurpee loss.  Perhaps Pintester should try to make these.  I am not sure if my fave candy were actually made in Canada or just billed as awesome Canadian candy as a lie.  It was probably cocaine on the inside and not pop rocks and you Canadians are way more strict about drugs, so it probably was trick American candy.

@Truffles8761 @Ethne Hedren Denham Truffles, you rock.  And PapaSucker was way better, let's face it.

@songbird83 Since you're from Canada, do you remember those taffy candy sticks that were strawberry and apple flavored that had what was kind of like pop rocks in the middle?  Best candy ever.  We used to be able to get them in NW North Dakota, but can't anymore, plus I don't live there anymore, so not a chance.  Anyway, can you still get them?  And what are they called?

That looks like one of those Sugar Daddy candies on a stick.  Yum.  I wonder how those got their name.  Let's see Pintestes, we're creative.  Get on that.

I say the best way is to use the flaming bag of poo then to forgive.  Isn't that what the Bible teaches?

Honestly Pintester, yours doesn't look that bad.  Because cheese makes everything marvelous.  However, the promises made in the picture of the pin were complete garbage.  They totally put Kraft M & C in that mug and lied.  And isn't that what half of Pinterest is - lies to make us feel like we can do stuff and then make us feel like worthless human beings for failing at everything?  Which is why you failing on our behalf saves lives.  You deserve the Nobel Peace Prize.  Or a Darwin Award.  Either or.

Portajohn.  Now if you could work that into a post that also refers to 'moist panties', I'd call that perfect.

I love it!  Thanks for the nod, Pintester.  You're an inspiration, for which I am thankful.  Can't wait to see the crap you get under your nails this holiday season.

Pintester, since you like to go rogue, I'd kindly tuck brigidkeely's info in your back pocket (since I'm pretty sure she's right w/ respect to angel food cake), but I'd like to see if this cake comes out clean from greasing your nordicware bundt pan.  And please don't be offended at my use of the term "going rogue".  There are some, including myself, who may take offense at being connected to a certain rogue tea bag; however, I also find the term "going rogue" hilarious, so I try to extricate the tea party from my life in other ways like not watching Fox News and thusly, still use the common vernacular as I please.

I keep it simple - I make my husband do Jack Skellington every year.  After about 2 days, his zillion teeth start to curl in and mold too; it's super scary for all the kids, so they'll never smash our pumpkins.

Is that chunky peanut butter you used?  That makes a world of difference right there.  You just turned off a generation of would-be dentists.  Of course, the original idea was just asking for that, which is a shame since the original idea has tooth rot written all over it.

My sister is trying to get pregnant and just got a job transfer across town that she's less than enthused about.  Honestly, I'm an awesome sister and I pep her up as much as I can, but receiving your wino kindergarten rose with some irreverent humor in it, the least of which will be that it will be coming from you and I've been nagging her to read your blog for weeks now - it would be just the pick-me-up she needs.  And it'd get me off the hook for a day or two of coming up with peppy inspiration.  Seriously, she's the psychologist; I'm just a dumpy barrister.  Your humor is much appreciated every day, Sonja.  PS, I insist you use the term 'cock' at least once, please.  'Cocksucker' is our fave term from "Deadwood" so she'll appreciate its inclusion.
