I thought it would be interesting to start a thread of signs that you have a pumpkin carving addiction. Not a bad thing in any way. I'll start off the list and feel free to add to it.

You can recognize the pumpkin stencil someone used for their pumpkin carving becuase you have either carved it before or have it in your collection.

You have a pumpkin carving budget.

You have a toolbox/storage container for your carving tools.

You have numerous pumpkin carving sites/stencil designs web pages bookmarked.

Halloween is your Christmas.

You go to Home Depot not for "home improvement" but for "pumpkin perfection."

You grow crops in your garden that you never intend on eating.

You "start thinking about" your Halloween carvings in February.

Candle stores are suddenly interesting in October.

And... For one day a year you are "The King" the other 364, you are just "that wierd pumpkin dude."

You're forced to live in the car because the spouse is tired of hearing you talk about pumpkins.

Every trip to the store must include a visit to the pumpkin section.

You have to wait in line the day after Labor Day to get more pumpkin carving patterns, tools, candles, etc., etc.

You can recite how to preserve pumpkin carvings by memory.

You get carpral tunnel syndrome from carving and gutting all the pumpkins you carve.

You get a rash from the pumpkin guts (which are slightly acidic) from all the pumpkins you carve.

You improvise tools not made for pumpkin carving to improve or speed up the carving process.
