062/366: Fun-Size Candy Mountain

Another busy day, so you get another kind of lazy shot. But, hey, everybody wants to know how the kids did trick-or-treating, right? So here's The Pip's share of the Halloween haul:

The Pip's Halloween candy. The Pip's Halloween candy.

I weighed both his plastic pumpkin full of candy and the Tupperware container that SteelyKid's stuff is in, and they each came out between 1.1 and 1.2 kg. So, a bit over 1kg each (after taking out the weight of the containers)-- not bad for an hour's work.

The funny part is that The Pip has turned into an exceptionally picky eater, and won't eat... any of this, really.

...and The Pip will be five. Happy birthday, Little Dude! Oh, yeah, there was also some kind of election. In which a bunch of crazy people lost, and a guy I played rugby with was elected a US Senator. Which is a great way to celebrate the one-year anniversary of this momentous occasion. And here's…
It's been over a month since I did a photo-a-day post, largely because I haven't been taking many pictures for a variety of reasons. I do still mean to get a year's worth of good photos done, but the "daily" part has completely disintegrated at this point. As a way of getting somewhat back on…
The day was dominated by the previously mentioned birthday party for The Pip, so it only makes sense to have the photo of the day be an action shot from said party: The Pip shaking a parachute with balls on it at his birthday party. This is from the games portion of the party, which included…

Smart kid.

Wow, the world sure has changed since I was a kid. The density of houses with candy was a LOT higher. Talk about feeding your inner diabetic back then!
