Paintball, Halloween and Writer’s Block

November 2, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

If you are trying to figure out the connection between paintball, Halloween and writer’s block – don’t, there are none. I’m experiencing a writer’s block as I’m trying to create a competition entry about the Tuscan wines (if you remember, I mentioned that competition in the Wednesday’s Meritage last week). I passionately despise (yeah, see, I’m doing pretty well avoiding the heavy word “hate”) the fact that I can’t write a post about Tuscany, one of the most diverse winemaking regions in the world, so I decided ( as many times before) to share a few pictures with you, while I’m pounding myself on the head trying  to get the block out.

First, here are a few pictures from the friendly game of paintball which we played on Sunday (right before the arrival of the dear f…ing Sandy). My team lost all the games, but that is not important – we had lots of fun.

Our guns:

And here is me, first in the front:

and back (after the last “free style” round) – yes, it was painful, in case you are wondering:

Then after dear f…ing Sandy departed, we found ourselves super lucky ( knock on wood as many times as possible, still going), as our street didn’t lose power, so we managed to carve pumpkins and celebrate Halloween:

The Halloween dish (clearly influenced by the post from A Detailed House):


And the pumpkins (kids had lots of fun):

May you never encounter writer’s block – and never experience the wrath of hurricane, even if it’s called by a cutesy name, such as Sandy.

That’s all for now, folks. I’m back pounding on that block. Cheers!

      yeah… don’t know even why it is here… Because of this one, I’m delaying some other posts which are way overdue now – and I’m just stumbling looking for the right way to write about the Tuscan wines… One inspiration, huh
