So, pumpkins

We should be talking about them, right? Given the time of year and our vegetable-related monicker. Also marrows, various squashes, sweetcorn and those gourd things (possibly inedible). Oh, and apples too. I had stewed apple and custard last night. I saw some pumpkins, but haven't eaten any yet.

In other news, I'm still alive.

Okay, let's take it a bit more seriously then. Top horror short stories? William Peter Blatty did one about a group of toys that was rather freaky. Anyone know what it was called? Fifty points available.

I don't know but it sounds like my cuppa tea. Will have to search that out.

There's a great series on the beeb at the mo about horror films. Mark Gatiss is presenting it. I think the second is tonight - about Hammer. Yay!

Don't know about the story, but know you've got me thinking about acorn squash baked with butter and brown sugar.

I assume it's delicious. I'm allergic so I don't know. But if it tastes like it smells, it's pretty amazing.
