My son wanted a mutant cyclops jack o lantern :-)

Did I mention my kids love Calvin and Hobbes?

I've got 5 kids, with the youngest being the 10 year old, and all of them have been big calvin and hobbes fans. They seem to all identify with Calvin. I am not sure that that is good.

C&H seems to have made son naughtier. Not sure whether it's good or bad.

Those pumpkins look like Terrance and Phillip.

That seems to happen around my house too, especially when I am telling them, 'you are supposed to laugh at Calvin, not with him!' when he's driving his father crazy.

Has your guy seen this one? It's just for him.

Cool :) Speaking of C&H, it looks like there won't be a film:
"Bill Watterson, who created the immensely popular comic strip about a boy and his tiger friend, has said that although he’s impressed with modern animated films from the likes of Pixar, he doesn’t see the need for a big-screen adaptation.

“The visual sophistication of Pixar blows me away, but I have zero interest in animating Calvin and Hobbes. If you’ve ever compared a film to a novel it’s based on, you know the novel gets bludgeoned. It’s inevitable, because different media have different strengths and needs, and when you make a movie, the movie’s needs get served. As a comic strip, Calvin and Hobbes works exactly the way I intended it to. There’s no upside for me in adapting it.”

it's interesting how halloween has completely died where i live now but was still a real to-do in other places i've lived.

there is ONE exception to this, the 11 h Brideshead Revisited with jeremy irons as charles ryder. the whole novel is in the movie. the movie is better.
