Pumpkin Smackdown 2013: update

Exciting update!!! After hours and HOURS of negotiations, mainly because Turtle is a stickler for the details and FD likes the sound of her own voice, we have finally agreed on the final categories for Pumpkin Smackdown 2013:

1. Grand Winner of Pumpkin Smackdown 2013
2. Best Expression in Show
3. Lamest Pumpkin
4. Best Infertility/Fertility Pumpkin Award
5. WTF Award
6. Almost Won Award

I know, I know, pretty exciting hey? We have had some excellento entries already so I’d get cracking if I were you (which I am; my pumpkin party is this weekend). As if things couldn’t get anymore exciting, as well as Magical Surprise Japanese Prizes we may also have some small prizes for the other categories. Oh yeah, wanna win now don’t you?

Good luck guys. I am extremely excited to see what the next week brings us.

Yours, covered in bits of smackdown pumpkin excitement,

A rules reminder if you wanna join:

RULES

1. You have to carve a pumpkin/s. You can use a knife, or a drill or any power tool you see fit.

2. You have to either email me or tweet either myself (@barren_betty) or FD (@fertility_doll) with your final presentation, or post it on your blog and make us definitely aware of it so that you can be included in the final judging. I’m not saying we don’t both read all blogs all the time, but FD can sometimes be a bit lax.

3. All submissions must be submitted by 31st October, 5pm at my standard time.

4. They must be worse than mine or we aren’t friends anymore. I am very competitive.

5. The prize is glory and honour AND MAGICAL SURPRISE PRIZES ALL THE WAY FROM JAPAN! (plus minor bonus prizes for runners up).

Pumpkin competition

Ok, so me and Fertility Doll were chatting about periods and infertility and smashing in doors and stuff when all of a sudden Fertility Doll said:

FD: What are you doing for Halloween? Are you carving a pumpkin?

BB: No. I’m not doing anything. I’m going to close my curtains, switch all the lights off and pretend I’m not home like I normally do.

FD: Why am I not surprised?

BB: Because you are an all-knowing magical being what knows everything?

FD: Correct. Anyways, maybe you should carve a pumpkin. It might be fun, and maybe it will distract you from smashing up doors?

BB: Yeah, okay. LETS MAKE IT A COMPETITION I CAN WIN.

FD: Umm, okay. I thought it’d just be fun though?

BB: YOU CAN’T HAVE FUN WITHOUT RULES.

FD: Okay, I’ll have a look on pinterest for ideas.

BB: Cheat.

FD: For goodness sake woman, you are impossible.

BB: Thank you.

FD: So, shall we open up this competition? We could do a lovely blog share and everyone will feel happy and lovely inside.

BB: NO! It should be a fight to the death of pumpkins. OH GOD! We need a judge.

Somehow Immotile Turtle becomes the judge, even though she is (by her own admission) shit at judging stuff and also easily bribed. Basically my perfect judge.

IT: It will be just like The Great British Bake Off! But with pumpkins! I am so happy, this is the best day of my life.

FD: But that excludes our friends across the pond. Oh no, I am so, so sad about this. I am such a nice person.

BB: STUFF THEM! Americans go mental for Halloween. If we include them, we will definitely, definitely come last. Not only do I have no imagination but I am also lazy. This isn’t fair. I hate this stupid competition already.

FD: Shut up Betty. We are all sick of your whining (and wining).

BB: Okay, but I make the rules.
