Ottawa, Pumpkins and Piggies



I'm trying to figure out what was the highlight of my day yesterday; If it was getting to meet Joanna Quinn and getting to tell her that I totally worship the ground that she walks on





or getting to meet adorable Lili the voice of Pepa Pig! (If you have never seen this show, go online get a listing and find out where its playing in your area!!! Its so cute!!)




or was it winning 2nd prize in the pumpkin carving contest for the second straight year (the Cartoon Network Swag gets better and better every year in the gift bag they give you)or getting to see the awesome animators, old friends and New alike!!!! I think the whole day was fabulous, it was all one big highlight!!
I'll tell you one thing it was hot outside! I don't think I've ever seen it this hot at the festival! But it came in handy at the outdoor picnic! I came to the picnic with the intention of making a pumpkin microwave for the pumpkin carving contest, basically a pumpking carved to look like a microwave (ten years ago me and my friends made a pumpkin computer!!) so I get there and the pumpkins are all gone!!! So I'm all sad so I run into Royleen Chris Robinson's Mom and Chris's son Jarvis. I am cheered to see Jarvis busy at work on his own pumpkin. After chatting with them and telling them that I probably wont get to do a pumpkin this year Jarvis practically magically pulls a pumpking out of thin air and gives it to me!! It turns out that it was sitting there next to him and he could have just kept it but he gave it to me!!! So I dedicated my pumpking to Jarvis! The size of the pumkin was perfect for another kitchen appliance, a toaster! So that's just what I did, complete with toast_shaped pumpkin pieaces. When I did win, from the the gift bag I presented him Blue from Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends!!!
I also received a blue cord from new friend of mine, Jason! He insisted on givng it to me and the toaster cord is what made the pumpkin, right now Lili and I are working on a prototype for a new solar-powered toaster!
Well I am just so excited, Linda Symenski described me as something of a "Pumpkin-Savont" because over the years I have won alot of these things, even though I never expect to win!
There will be more later. I am going to buy this new software called Digi Cell! They have it at a table and they let me try it out, it works like a vertical exposrue sheet!! You can draw right into it and it looks like pencil!! They animated the Simpsons Movie with Digicell! So I might have to gte it and I can get it for only $40! I'll keep you updated! Keep and eye out for another posting later today!
until then!...
