You NEED to read this! Pumpkins + Infertiles (pregnant ones included) + Barren Betty with a drill= A WHOLE LOT OF FUN! This could go horribly well for some of us and tragically wrong for others. Either way we’re all going cackle happily and we want you to join in! Barren Betty explains it all on her blog including how on earth we came up with this– so head on over there!! Whatchu waiting for?
If you’re worried about your pumpkin carving skills (or lack of), rest assured there are many categories and this is one of them:
we are all fighting for the Lamest in Show award… #gameon – Barren Betty
Current pumpkin contenders (this is sounding like Gladiators)
1. Barren Betty
Betty’s in it to win it. The fact she’s being let loose with knives and a drill scares me a bit. I hope Mr Betty has insured the house.
Lentil says her creativity matches that of a 6 year old but she beats my creative age of 4 so the odds may still be in her favour. Oh and she said to roast the pumpkin seeds.
The message was short but sweet. It’s always the quiet ones who hide their game, so I think we all need to keep our eyes on the Robin.
Bluebird’s American and says she’s ‘terrible’ at pumpkin carving. Mmmmhhmm, is this just a ploy to distract us? It’s in her blood. One to watch.
The message was clear ‘I AM American, so watch your back foreigner.’ I’m now expecting a super sized pumpkin that sends a bat signal into the sky.
6. The infernal infertile
She’s fiery and she’s got fighter talk. While she may not be American and her country might not even have pumpkins, she’s pretty damn sure she’s going to win.
7. New To IVF
New To IVF caved when she saw the lame award. Good thing too because we’re looking forward to seeing that pumpkin!
8. Fertility Doll
That would be me. I’m in it for the drill and to earn a Blue Peter badge.
DRUM ROLL PLEASE.. the judge (she’s easily bribed)…
I’ll judge!! I love Halloween! although, my decision making skills are shit.— Immotile Turtle
