The Nutritious pumpkin... ;)

It is said that the Jack-o-lantern was an Irish tradition. The story tells of Jack who tricked Satan into climbing a tree. He carved a cross into the tree and the Devil begged Jack to let him down because he could not take the sight of the cross anymore. After Jacks death, he refused Heaven because of his evil ways, yet was denied Hell by the devil for tricking him as well. Instead, the devil gave Jack a single ember to find his way through the darkness with. The ember was inserted into a turnip to keep it glowing longer. After the Irish came to America, they opted using pumpkins instead of turnips because the pumpkins were more efficient in keeping the ember lit.

lol! Awesome. Got more info on that? I knew my factoid sounded incomplete.

Dude I would TOTALLY come to your halloween party!!!

I went to a great one the other night, just had a blast, and then proceeded to screw my shoulder up REALLY bad as soon as I got home. Owwwwwy. So I suppose I shouldn't really be partying at all.

He's gonna be Cookie Monster. :) He's the cutest damn thing on Earth, I tell ya.

my info is from some random website for halloween trivia, so it could be unreliable:

Jack was a blacksmith
Jack was stingy
Jack had a bad temper
Jack was usually drunk
Jack tricked the Devil twice
When Jack died he was denied entry into Heaven because of all the bad things he had done
When jack died he was denied entry into Hell because he had tricked the Devil
Although the Devil denied Jack entry, he did give Jack some coals from the fires of Hell
Jack placed the burning coals into the hollowed out turnip he was carrying. He used this lantern to help him see at night, while he roams the Earth waiting for Judgment day

Haha, the party didn't screw my shoulder. ;)

I actually borrowed my friends extra pair of fairy wings and then got glitterized. I meant to dress as a wench, but I didn't end up going home the night before ( hehe) so I couldn't get my costume. Luckily my friends were very accomadating and turned me into a glitter fairy for a litte while.

I kept knocking into things with the wings though. haha.. so after a few drinks I decided it was safer for all involved if I removed them.

Hells yes, if Burton did it. And it would be fun to see him play a dick. I mean, he sort of has, but you always like him. (well, in everything I've seen) - he should just play an outright ass!
