Your Move, Bryan

Pumpkin Patchin', and Things That Go Bump In The Night

Before I get started, something HUGE is being planned for either Nov. 14th or November 16th. Please keep you schedules free, I promise you aren't going to regret it.

After I had to get vaccines for this, this, this, this, and this, we decided to combat the wooziness with a lovely trip to the pumpkin patch.

After a bit of searching, Jen With One N found her pumpkin.

Soon after, I found mine.

We also found other pumpkins.

Like ass-crack pumpkin.

Half completed Swastika pumpkin.

Viagra pumpkin.

Mickey Mouse ears pumpkin.

Leaning Tower of Pumpkin.

And even Mario Beanstalk pumpkin! Which by the way, I ended up buying.

Now I'm not sure if these are at your pumpkin patches...

...but things like this really disturb me. I mean really, who honestly feels right about sliding down an inflatable, half-sunken Titanic? Right now, I can't think of anything more morbid.

Then it was off to Chipotle for a meeting regarding the even we're planning on Nov. 14th or 16th. After they kicked us out it was off to Starbucks, and after they kicked us out it was time to sneak into the Heritage Park.

Ever the adventurer, Yov has second thoughts about things...

...and after awhile her and Nails think they're starting to hear things.

Haunted or not, look forward to this plus food plus more people in the middle of November. More details to come...

Camera battery died, but sometime after it was , at least according to Yo...

-Wal-Mart pee sessions

-Scary stories

-Ghost hunts

-Jesus's cousin in the corner of my room

-Productive evening

-PS. dont look in your rearview mirrow.

Pretty well put, fellow library kindred spirit. Pretty well put, indeed.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand, here's where the horse kicked me. Ouch!

REMEMBER! NOV.14th/NOV 16th!

My sister dropped by yesterday and dropped off these glorious bits in my refrigerator.

Bless you Valerie, and bless you sweet, sweet White Castle.

Thompson Hallowe'en Party

The Thompsons had their annual Halloween party this past Friday. If you weren't there, you missed out on some delicious food and Auggie's janitorial costume- complete with mop and bucket full of Coronas.

The hosts.

Pumpkin or carrot? You decide.

Shaka for all you braddahs out deh.

And Auggie, who was in town from Fresno and made this awesome costume in a little over an hour. Genius!

Avalon's face only means one thing...


Then it was off to Christine's house to visit her party for a bit, where I run into Danny with this being the first thing he says to me.

"Jason, wow I'm glad you made it. I'm going to the slammer."

Best guesses for my costume all night; pothead, Chinaman, railroad bum. I guess being a historical figure just doesn't cut it anymore.

Les capitaines.

Nick and Dan- Best. Team. Everrr.

OK. Who am I kidding. It's been over 10 pictures and you haven't seen the compulsory pictures that accompany a Bear's Den post with

a.) a party
b.) Bryan
c.) Tony

Well, dear readers, we've come to that point in the blog. Enjoy.

Good Luck, Dan

You're probably not going to be able to read this where you're headed, but we love you nonetheless.

I'd make a friend, if you know what I mean. You're too pretty to be left alone.

Halloween Party recap later today, I'm ridiculously tired. The last 10 days have been non-stop driving for me. The Mason Jar is throwing a little benefit sometime within the next couple of weeks, so stay tuned for that. It's gonna be a swell time, so make sure you make it!

I miss writing on here. I need more time. 24 hours isn't enough.

Your Friend,



Congrats to Nichole for winning Best Female Tattoo at some East Coast tattoo convention. It's Magic City!

Yes, I Have Been Missing.

But I've been working on something very special.

Details soon. $25 dollars, limited edition, and totally tax deductible.

Tom fell in love with it so hard that he broke his collarbone.

Disneyland: Emerging Gang Problem? You Decide.

So I went to Disneyland the other day looking for what everyone else goes there for: a release from gang violence.

Unfortunately, Disneyland is no shelter to this thug life we livin'.

I kept running into this kid who wasn't only throwing up sets, but hollering at little old ladies to, and I quote, "move dey raggedy ass 'fo day get shot uppp."

Here he is puffing his chest out at that poor lady.

"Darren, do you want the frozen lemonade or the ice cream sandwich?" - Darren's mom

"Lemme get dat cotton candy. - Darren

Suffice it to say, it was pretty dangerous taking these pictures. I should have worn one of these.

The Cheese and I were feeling extra tough after dealing with Darren The Blood. And what else do you do when you're feeling harder than a hard boiled egg?

You get tatted, son.

In the heat of things, we forgot how to play checkers. Halfway through this attempted game we realized that we were using the wrong squares, and didn't have enough pieces.

I'm guessing this was Darren's favorite part of Disneyland- not because of the movie, but because it reminded him of his homie Nemo locked up in Chino Juvenile.

What better way to end such an impetuous day than to watch the sunset on top of a parking structure?

"Out on bail, fresh outta jail, California dreamin'," we murmur to ourselves.

"Soon as we stepped on the scene, we're hearing hoochies screamin'."

Oh, and here's the answer to last week's music question.

Chris K.- you're the winner! Expect your shirt before the end of next week. Here are the other results...

2.) Dan B. (texted me literally 3 minutes after I saw Chris' response)
3.) Nolan
4.) Laurie
5.) Dillan
6.) Amelia
7.) Joey Knuckles (even though you were 3246246736875637 hours late)

Pretty awesome that you guys figured that one out. I got some weird guesses from some of you that I'll keep to myself to prevent certain embarassment.

Here's an easy one. The first five people to finish this (call/text/reply to the bottom) gets one of my most prized possessions from Cleveland, that I just so happen to have a surplus of.
