Time to say goodbye to PAC-TORT…for now…

Watch out, PAC-TORT, it’s Pinky the ghost!  😱👻🦕

But wait…has Pinky defected from the other ghosts?  🤔

😋🐢🕹

* Tumblr is still eating our individual photo captions, so while the code monkeys are working on that, captions below:

  1. What’s this blocking my path?
  2. Watch out?  But what’s so scary about a pretty pink ghost?
  3. Pinky will mean game over for me?!
  4. You wouldn’t do that to me, would you, Pinky?
  5. You hear that?
  6. Pinky says she’s my friend!
  7. Let’s go nomming, Pinky!
  8. Bring us noms this instant, game master!

Ladies and gentlemen, it’s time to reveal my Halloween costume!

IntroducingPAC-TORT!

The cuter, GRUMPier version of the classic arcade game!

Ready!

…NOM!

〰️➿〰️

* Tumblr is still eating our individual photo captions, so while the code monkeys are working on that, captions below:

  1. Say shello to the ultimate CHOMPer!
  2. Can I start nomming yet?
  3. Staring into the distance as I daydream about all the noms my new giant mouth can CHOMP!
  4. Is this black background nom-able, too?
  5. I decree that this wall shall be covered with noms when I open my eyes!
  6. Excuse me, how am I supposed to stay in character if I am not surrounded by noms?!
  7. Do you see how big and empty my new yarn mouth is?!
  8. Time for drastic measures:  Are there noms lurking outside the blackness?
  9. Doo-doo-doo-doo-drroodrroo—Human, you are doing a terrible job of onomatopoeia-ing the Pac-Man theme song!
  10. Hurry up and bring more noms for a proper PAC-TORT CHOMPing!

It’s Halloween costume fitting time!  Mom’s first attempt at my costume didn’t quite work, but her second try is looking much better!  Can you guess what I am going to be?

Hint:  Nomming is required as part of my costume!

Happy I Love Yarn Day!

Today we shellebrate our favorite crafty medium:  yarn!

Mom’s favorite yarn for making amigurumi (knit or crocheted plushies) and my Halloween costumes is Lily Sugar’n Cream yarn.  Lily Sugar’n Cream is a 100% cotton yarn that comes in all the colors of the rainbow and keeps its shape the best out of all the yarns Mom has tried.  Plus, it’s super affordable:  Mom can usually get a whole ball for $1!

🍂  Happy October!  🎃

October means Halloween is right around the corner!  What will Jack Shellington be for Halloween this year?

🎶 THIS IS TORT-O-WEEN, THIS IS TORT-O-WEEN
Kirby GRUMPs in the dead of night!

This is Tort-o-ween, everybody make a scene
Trick or treat till the neighbors gonna die of cute
It’s our town, everybody GRUMP
In this town of Tort-o-ween

THIS IS TORT-O-WEEN, THIS IS TORT-O-WEEN

TORT-O-WEEN!  TORT-O-WEEN!  TORT-O-WEEN!
In this town we call home
Everyone GRUMP to the tortoise song!  
🎶

May the Fourth be with all those racing today!

My homemade BB-8 costume is from Halloween 2016!

Finally, a day warm enough for me to go outside!  Mom and I took advantage of the good weather by going to the park.  The park has my favorite pavement—it is so delicious that I spent the entire time trying to nom every single white speck!  (Mom was too busy making sure I didn’t swallow any rocks to take photos of my pavement nomming this time.)

I also met lots of new friends, including a couple of little girls who gave me the nicest cuddles.  I chilled in their hands and basked in the attention while they told me how cute I am.  Now that’s what I call proper shellebrity treatment!

When I got really hungry, I tried nomming Mom’s shoes.  Luckily, Mom had packed a snack for me, so I got to enjoy a big piece of chicory while watching all the people go by.  After that, I GRUMPed at Mom until she took me home for a nap!
