  2. Make a Realistic Stitched Wound: part of Instructables’ DIY Halloween
  3. Para Abnormal: a web comic with posts for the "31 Days of Halloween"
  4. Pompor: the {faux} IKEA, flat-packed pumpkin
  5. Create and Draw Monsters: classic monster & Halloween coloring book pages

  21. Candy Toss: toss treats to trick-or-treaters on the street below.

  24. Bill the Demon: Find souls. Eat them.
  25. Halloween Smash: like Bejeweled, but with Halloween-related items.

While I am deeply engrossed in an offline special project, I pop up to share with you a fine article from the Wall Street Journal Tiki Doesn’t Have to Be Tacky

(If the current economic woes have you down, there are few better cures than a little of the Hawai’ian/Polynesian spirit.)
