Got Halloween Fever

I'm getting amped for Halloween this year.
I bought a bunch of decorations and I'm still buying more.
I'll show you how I do the yard when it's done.


IslandPearl said...

Cool...did you check out FloraDec on Nimitz? They have the best Halloween stuff on Oahu.

Frakkin Toaster said...

Halloween is awesome! Scary movies, pumpkins, CANDY CORN, girls dressed up as bunnies, devils, and vampires, you gotta love it!

...is this a good time to ask about the 7th, or 'zombie' season of Lost?

Paul Spooner said...

My little boy want's to dress as a fairy! I tried to persuade him to be a wizard, or even a witch, but he is insisting on the fairy costume!

Whatever he chooses, he will be COOL!

Ezequiel said...

Here we dont celebrate halloween, it looks funny :D

Petra said...

Awesome. I can't wait to see your pumpkins this year!

: ) P

Nene said...

I bet it will be scary as hell, Plants vs. Zombie-Style.

Jenea said...

You already think about Halloween? I thought that you are going to do a suit himself, I think what it would be funnier and more interesting! But .... and it would be cool! You will be like your geckos skeletons ! :)

Jenea said...

Jorge!!! Look on my suit:

~Karen~ said...

You always do a great job with Halloween. I especially love your creative costumes.
My big Halloween craft this year is making vintage "poisons/venom/virus and serum labels for bottles and potions.

Alisha Rene' said...

SWEET! can't wait to see the full effect!

milk and cookeez said...

We decorate up for Halloween, but it's not too scary. WE have a graveyard in the front yard and the house gets fun touches throughout. It has to be 2 year old friendly though.

Javier said...

Invite us to your halloween party ^^

Jocelyn said...

The skull fogger is AWESOME!!! I scored one on clearance last year and am VERY impressed, worth $7.

We put our stuff up Sept 27. Junior bugged and BUGGED us to decorate. We got everything up and he was ready to take it all down on the 28th because it was scary. That's the point, right? (It's the ghost on the string that gets his goat. Kinda "fun" watching him run in and out of the door.)

Thomas said...

i remember your pics from last year halloween... they were great. and im sure youre able to lift up the edge again.

one year... damn, time flies.

Kashmir said...

When asked about my favorite holiday, my answer is always HALLOWEEN!

Enjoy decorating. It is going to look great!

Topanga said...

I'm a party pooper! I don't like Halloween. It stems back from when we lived in our old house in a very popular neighbourhood. People from all around would drive to our neighbourhood to drop their kids off at one end and wait for them at the other. We'd get hundreds of kids. It was exhausting.

Now we live on a step hill in between high traffic Halloween routes. Kids can't be bothered to walk down or up the hill to our house. Last year we didn't even get as many as 20 kids. I think shutting off all the lights and pretending we weren't home may have had something to do with that.


my favorite holiday..I found the perfect costume for me...it's called a 'holy shit'...(which is my favorite expression) it's a brown baggy looking costume with a angle halo ...'holy shit'...i laughed so hard i hurt myself.

Beena said...

Can't wait to see the pics of how you decorate your yard!
Maybe if it's scary enough it will keep drunken people from sleeping in your trees since the sprinkler didn't work last time! (wink)

cjcat said...

I haven't been decorating for Halloween much anymore since we retired to the mountains. There are only four houses on our road and I'm on top of the steepest hill. I deliver my Halloween treats to the only two kids in the neighborhood and to my grandkids.

However, last year I ran into a killer sale after Halloween and I couldn't resist. I loaded up. Now if it would only quit raining and flooding, I could decorate.

My favorite bad movie from the weekend: Warriors of Virtue. Why? Kung Fu Kangaroos!

the first photo rembember me the brother of mr. Eko :-)

Erin said...

Creepy! I bet your house is quite the sight on Halloween!

Jeremiah said...

I'm looking forward to your costumes and pumpkins. You've got seriously mad Halloween skills, dude.

James Hernandez said...


My plan for Halloween is to turn off the lights and let all the 'trick or treaters pass on by!' I'm a mean SOB this time of year! :P

moon said...

I ♥ Halloween!

19 more days to Halloween, Halloween, Halloween

Lisa said...

Have you started to carve any pumpkins yet?

ReNaTo UêGa said...

Oh cool! Scary stuff. In Brazil usually we don't celebrate Halloween.
"Invite us to your halloween party ^^" [²]
"Rest in pieces" LOL
Hugs Jorgeman!!!

mabochda said...

wow can't believe it's that time of year again. seems like yesterday when you did the last pumpkin carvings. time flies!!

Christina Bauer said...

Awesome! I love when people deck out their houses for Halloween. So creative!

Cat said...

I love the photos and Halloween is my favorite holiday. A few weeks ago I bought a '66 Cadillac hearse, something I've wanted for a long time. I will be spending Halloween and the night before it on two paranormal investigations. Will be a lot of fun. Hope you have a great time, too.

Pen2 said...

Hi again Jorge

Just came across this website with pics of lots of pumpkins on display at Disneyland California.
Enjoy pumpkin people,



B.R said...

WHY did you do that to Beth? (first pic)
Did she try to kill you with a kitchen knife or what?

KoRoBaRo said...

This will be a weird HaLLoWeeN for us this year. All the main PuMPKiN crops were wiped out! They have to truck them in from other places.

Alton said...

What? No zombies? I recommend the Dancing Zombie, better known as the MJ-lookalike from Plants Vs. Zombies.

Yes, I'm still hooked.

P.S. Do you ever sell plants in any of your Zen Gardens? I can't decide whether to let my snail keep harvesting the coins or if I should sell the full-grown to make room for more.

Malea said...

I hate scary Halloween deco's. I love cutsy Halloween deco's. And Lost. I both can and can't wait for Lost. Can't because it's my happy place, Can because it's almost the end.

weeee dude :-)
would you like to know a strange think happened to me last night?
well, lets get started:
I dreamed of Terry O'Quinn, John Locke, that come to visiting me and he spoke in a perfect italian.
Then i started to speak about Lost, the monster, the other and about my theories, but he started to talk in english about star trek and admiral Arik Pressman and then i waked up.
Tell me: is all this normal for you or i have seen to mutch episodes of lost? :-)

Tena Lynn said...

Oh you do this every year!! I can't wait to see what you do this time~~~~does Nunu have a costume? We have never seen Beth wear one I don't think. Hope you guys are doing great.


wehav2gobak said...

Love you Jorge, but in all the time I've been reading your blog, I don't know if I've ever seen you reply to our comments. What gives?

-SAS- said...

qué guay!

dani2 said...

The last name, Garcia, is now the 8th most popular name in America. You aren't just popular because of lost!
Sorry this had nothing to do with your Halloween pics! I do love those. Post more!

Checkie said...

Just thought you might get a kick out of this. Yahoo had a story on their homepage this morning, and you were listed as #17 on their list of cheap and easy celebrity Halloween costumes.


I'm about your size, if I could find a khaki jumpsuit, I'd dress as Hurley the Dharma cook, too. Instead, I've got vampire makeup and I'm going to be what Edward Cullen would have looked like if he'd eaten Bella.:)

Ananitta said...

Hi Jorge!!

I'm preparing our Halloween Party and we need lost of stuff too. My friends and I decided to make our own old hospital and become in zombie nurses and doctors.

But I'm posting you a comment because these days we have a spanish journalist (I'm not sure if this is the right word in English) in Hawaii, following the Lost masterclasses, and she has her blog in Cuatro's web. Raquel just post the photos with cast! You can see it in this link:

Kisses from Spain!

Nicole said...

Jorge, ever since you're blog was linked to fark i've been a fan. Enjoy reading what's going on in your life, and it's refreshing to find a celeb that is so down to earth.

Tamara said...

I love halloween stuff, sure ur gonna make a scary party!!! :D

Craig and Lori said...

When I saw these pumpkins in the Chicago Tribune, I thought of your Halloween pumpkins: http://www.chicagotribune.com/features/green/chi-carved-pumpkins-pg,0,1039792.photogallery

I didn't know if you saw this or not, but I thought they were pretty sweet.

groovymom said...

Oh I am pathetic....I admit it, I pop in EVERY day - looking for Jorge Halloween updates. You have totally spoiled us with your Halloween offerings in years past. (The spidey wrapped baby will be burned in my brain FOREVER!) Looking forward to your pumpkins & your costume pix.

ps - does Nunu dress up??

Thanks as always - and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!

I can't wait to see it!!! We're big on Halloween! It's such a fun holiday!!!

Suz said...

We're in a terrible bind this year, my husband and I. We've got our costumes, but none of our friends have put together a costume party yet. :/ If you're having one, we'll gladly bring some poke, Lil' Smokies, and musubi. Also, you do pumpkin carving? AWESOME!! I'll have to go sift through your archives and take a peek.

Lana said...

Weeee, too bad here in Croatia Halloween is not that popular :D

Tasha Who? said...

I haven't visited the blog in a while, but since it was halloween, I figured there may be cool jack-o-lanterns on display... The decorations are no doubt fantastic, however!

lisagwilkins said...

Hey Jorge, are y'all havin' everybody over to carve pumpkins like you did last year? I love the ones you did and the ones Josh and Yessica did too, 'course with the baby now, I bet they got their hands full.

There was this guy who believed very much in true love and decided to take his time to wait for his right girl to appear. He believed that there would definitely be someone special out there for him, but none came.
Every year at Christmas, his ex-girlfriend would return from Vancouver to look him up. He was aware that she still held some hope of re-kindling the past romance with him. He did not wish to mislead her in any way. nike shoxsSo he would always get one of his girl friends to pose as his steady whenever she came back. That went on for several years and each year, the guy would get a different girl to pose as his romantic interest. So whenever the ex-girlfriend came to visit him, she would be led into believing that it was all over between her and the guy. nike womens shoes The girl took all those rather well, often trying to casually tease him about his different girlfriends, or so, as it seemed! In fact, the girl often wept in secret whenever she saw him with another girl, but she was too proud to admit it. Still, every Christmas, she returned, hoping to re-kindle some form of romance. But each time, she returned to Vancouver feeling disappointed.
Finally she decided that she could not play that game any longer. puma mens shoes Therefore, she confronted him and professed that after all those years, he was still the only man that she had ever loved. mens puma shoesAlthough the guy knew of her feelings for him, he was still taken back and have never expected her to react that way. He always thought that she would slowly forget about him over time and come to terms that it was all over between them. nike shox Although he was touched by her undying love for him and wanted so much to accept her again, he remembered why he rejected her in the first place-she was not the one he wanted. nike 360 air maxSo he hardened his heart and turned her down cruelly. nike running shoesSince then, three years have passed and the girl never return anymore. They never even wrote to each other. NIKE air shoes The guy went on with his life..... still searching for the one but somehow deep inside him, he missed the girl.
On the Christmas of 1995, he went to his friend's party alone. "Hey, how come all alone this year? Where are all your girlfriends? What happened to that Vancouver babe who joins you every Christmas?", asked one of his friend.nike air max He felt warm and comforted by his friend's queries about her, still he just surged on.
Then, he came upon one of his many girlfriends whom he once requested to pose as his steady. He wanted so much to ignore her ..... not that he was impolite,wholesale nike shoes but because at that moment, he just didn't feel comfortable with those girlfriends anymore. nike shox torchIt was almost like he was being judged by them. The girl saw him and shouted across the floor for him. Unable to avoid her, he went up to acknowledge her.
"Hi......how are you? Enjoying the party?" the girl asked.
"Sure.....yeah!", he replied.
She was slightly tipsy..... must be from the whiskey on her hand.

I was wondering if you offer any subscription to your RSS feeds as I would be very interested and can’t find any link to subscribe here.
