Have a happy Halloween, geeks!

meaningless icon! Congratulations to the winners! I'm not listed in the Honorable Mentions, but I'm going to deem my pumpkin Most Likely to Make You Chop Someone's Head Off While Carving, anyway.

meaningless icon! I'm psyched to carve my very own Companion Pumpkin. She will NOT be incinerated!
