It’s only Halloween don’t go loosing your head.

 

The Headless Horseman automatically is a part of Halloween simply because of the Jack-o-lantern he palms. He is a frightening figure who rides a horse and also carries a sword, ready to spread his headless affliction. Considering the fact that he can hold a large pumpkin in one hand and can throw it, he must be a very large figure, which also can be menacing. I remember watching the Disney adaption many years ago and even though the movie was animated, Disney did not pull any punches. It was as scary as any live-action movie.

One thing about the Headless Horseman always bothered me: how is he able to see without eyes? Can he see through the jack-o-lantern? The horse? Does he have an invisible head? If so, is he really headless? I guess it is meant to be a mystery.

Yesterday, Vanilla Ice posted a photo of his very ninja jack-o-lanterns.

The fearsome foursome Jack-O-Lanterns were made with watermelons and the lighting  they are using are either colored lights or glow sticks. If you don’t know who these are, I suggest you go google Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and spend a few days with netflix and the internet watching everything you can. I love the TMNT so much, and Vanilla Ice’s Ninja Rap from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze, which is superior to the first, in my opinion only because of Super Shredder and also I really like Vanilla Ice so make sure you follow him on Twitter for some very Ninja Tweets.

Interestingly enough, as I searched for information about Turtles 2, I found out that it is available for Pre-Order or Amazon.com for the 3 pack on Blu-Ray. The Blu-Ray set, which features all three amazing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Movies, will be released on November 13, 2012 just in time for the winter holiday season and at only $17.32 it makes an excellent gift for anyone on your list.

Today’s Pinteresting Post of the day comes courtesy of the Keeping Up With The Rheinlander’s Pinterest board entitled Book Stuff. What is wonderful about the Keeping up with the Rheinlander’s website and facebook page is that they review tons of book all the time. So if you have a book coming out, or just want to know what kind of books are out there, click on over there and see what’s up.

This fascinating bookshelf, shaped into the word READ can be found at the upscale NK department store in Stockholm, Sweden according to What the Cool.

This is a fabulous idea for a bookshelf, if you have the room. It doubles both as art and a holder for your books. And it would make even the most shameful collection of Twilight Novels and Fifty Shades of Grey look like something to behold.

While, I’m pretty certain this was made specifically for them, there isn’t any reason some of you handy people out there can’t go out and make a similar bookshelf yourself. So head on down to Lowes or Home Depot and get started.

Today’s Pinteresting Post Comes Courtesy of the Ministry of Alcohol who run a Facebook Page and a blog dedicated to very interesting ideas, involving alcohol. This was originally pinned to my Let’s Get Drunk pinterest board.

Their most interesting idea, since I’ve discovered them, is this Watermelon Keg.

When I was younger, and definitely not in High School nor underage, my friends and I went to a park and had a very fun Memorial Day barbeque. The main event was a fruit salad in a watermelon that had been soaked in Everclear. If you don’t know what Everclear is, it is a very high alcohol content liquor it’s somewhere between 170 and 190 proof (85% and 95% alcohol content), whereas vodka and whiskey are typically 80 to 120 proof or 40 to 60 percent alcohol.

By the time anyone attempted to eat the watermelon they had forgotten or had been forced to, due to the depleted supply of beverages, eat the watermelon for overwhelming thirst. And as originally expected, but at the same time by surprise, anyone eating the melon was completely drunk.

After seeing this photo on pinterest and reading the instructions on the Ministry of Alcohol’s website, I’ve decided that next Memorial Day barbeque I’m going to fill a watermelon with some type of Everclear or Moonshine based mixed drink and relive those lost days of youth.

 

You may have noticed that I have changed the naming mechanism a bit, I figure that this way you’ll know what you’re getting.

Today’s Pinteresting Post of the Day is a Healthy Eating Poster that I pinned to my Thinterest Board. The board, promotes healthy eating and exercise and does not promote eating disorders in anyway.

This pin came from the Undressed Skeleton, tumbler blog which is run by Taralynn McNitt. She also does some pinteresting things on Pinterest and post a lot of very interesting lower calorie versions of some originally very unhealthy foods. You can follow her on Pinterest here. She posted recently a very nice vegan substitution guide which is also handy for non vegans should you find yourself out of eggs while baking. She also posts some very fun fashion tips.

If you enjoy healthy ideas and exercise ideas, follow my Thinterest board on pinterest. I’ve posted such fun and interesting things like very short exercise plans. Interesting food ideas, and other inspiration for people who are trying to lose weight. It isn’t for everyone and I hardly do most of the ideas in there but we all have to start somewhere.

Today’s Pinteresting Post of the Day comes from Sweet Peach and is an adult take on the drink of my wandering teenaged years. I’m talking about none other than the Adult Slushie (I believe Slurpee is trademarked by 7-Eleven).

I pinned this to my Pinterest Board entitled “Let’s Get Drunk”. So if you like alcohol inspired drinks and even a few edibles follow that pinterest board. Tho, I warn you following that board may get you drinking more than usual.

According to the Sweet Peach blog, the drink is served at the Atlanta based Victory Sandwich Bar + Emporium. Where they own their own slushie machine.  I don’t own my own slushie machine, and I don’t live in Atlanta. If you live in Atlanta, please do go down to the Victory Sandwich Bar and Emporium and buy one, get wasted, and then tell me how awesome it was.

I on the other hand will drive to 7-Eleven in my car, with the air conditioning on full blast, freezing, teeth chattering cold and run in buy the largest Slurpee available. I’ll run home, suppressing my urge to dump some Jack Daniels into my Slurpee at that very moment, because as bad as drinking and then driving is, I’m sure drinking WHILE driving is much worse. And upon arriving home, I will take some Jack Daniels which I will have premixed with a bit of coke out of the freezer and pour it in to my Slurpee and see how awesome it is.

If you don’t have a 7-Eleven or the Victory Sandwich Bar near you, here is a wikihow link that promises to show you how to make your own homemade Slurpee with Coke.
