Smash for Cash


 Our original costume plan fell through so at the last minute we came up with the mummy idea. Maybe next year. 

We've been extremely busy with school, work and other various activities that time to pull our costumes together was cut short. Perhaps it was that Halloween was over shadowed by the fact that I won $411. You read that right.

On campus I smashed a pumpkin with four-hundred and eleven dollars in it.
it was awesome.
We put it towards some of our ever consuming never ending medical bills.

The next day the story appeared on the front cover of the Daily Universe. 2009 might be my best year for publications. We spent the weekend attending assorted Halloween parties and eating too much candy. We can't wait for Halloween 2010.

Dude I can't believe you won all that money! That's amazing! You are so famous these days. I loved your costumes even if your real idea fell through. I dressed up for work as an Indian... Again. so uncreative I know! I wanted to steal your idea and be Edward bc that would be so fitting for Paul Mitchell but I realized with scissor hands I would be to handicapped to help them with their cuts. Miss you!

you deserve that $411. I'm glad you smashed it and not some gay apex bro-vo. Love your costume, love you.

That is so cool! I wish all pumpkins came with money in them! You must be paying your tithing :)

I smashed a lot of pumpkins in front of Macey's looking for $411 too...couldn't find any money in those pumpkins. Had to run real hard and duck through a lot of backyards to avoid getting caught by the cart collectors who saw me smashing their pumpkins. Oops.
