Yesterday I was very creative. I carved my first pumpkin. I never did it before, so it was an experiment. My mom works at a greenshop, so she brought me the biggest pumpkin in the shop. I checked the internet for tips and tricks and for some ideas. I thought I could make a Jack pumpkin, from "A Nightmare Before Christmas". I turns out, pumpkin carving isn't that difficult. Here's the result:

Not bad for my first pumpkin huh? Well, let Halloween begin. Actually, here in The Netherlands we don't celebrate Halloween like the Americans do. But we like it to. And I got some movie tips for you. Movies perfect for a Halloween night:
- "The Excorsist" - Still the scarriest movie I've ever seen.
- "Friday the 13th" - Jason is very scary
- "The Shining" - Jack Nicholson is avery scary psycopath
- "Halloween" - of course, THE movie for this holiday!

7 Reasons why you should watch "Supernatural"

1. The storylines The writers do a great job at writing new and surprising storylines every single episode. It keeps this show fresh and interesting.
2. The 1967 Chevy Impala Without a doubt the coolest car I've ever seen. Dean can pick me up every time in that ride!
3. The laughs Allthough it's a supernatural scary show, it brings us a lot of laughs. The two brothers make funny jokes about each other or the case that their are working on. Who doesn't like a guy with a good sense of humour?
4. Myths, legends and folklores I always loved stories like this. Stories that can't possibly be true, but still nobody proved if it's true or fiction.
5. The monsters Some monsters are even scarrier then the next. Not just how they look, but their attitude can be very spooky too. I like it that sometimes one of the monsters returns in another episode.
6. The supporting cast It's all about Dean and Sam, but they get a lot of help. Like dad John, Bobbi, Jo, Ellen, Castiel, Ruby and Gordon.
7. Sam and Dean They are, I think, the main reason why most people (read:women) watch "Supernatural. Sam is a very smart, sweet and responsible guy. you can always rely on him. Dean is funny, tough and charming. He has a big mouth and a big heart. That's the perfect combo for a kick-ass duo and a great TV-show, that you really need to watch!

Movie Heroes

If I was a famous actress, and I would play a mistress in distress, who would I want to save me? Well, kind of a tough question. I couldn't think of just one hero, so here's my list of movie heroes:

- Indiana Jones (Harisson Ford in "Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark"): He's my all time favourite movie character, so I really would like to be saved by him. Who would thought history would be so cool?!

- James Bond (Daniel Craig in "Casino Royal"): I normally don't like ladykillers, but Mr. Bond is an exception. He's so charming and extremely handsome.

- Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver in "Alien"): Who told you women can't be heroes. She's the coolest female hero ever! She can kick ass and not just alien-ass.

- Han Solo (Harisson Ford in "Star Wars"): Skywalker is not the only hero in the "Star Wars"- saga.

- John McClane (Bruce Willis in "Die Hard): He curses, smokes, drinks. You just gotta love McClane.

- Bruce Wayne/ Batman (Christian Bale in "Batman Begins"): He's a slick and rich guy by day and a hero fighting crime by night. Great combo!

- Jack Traven (Keanu Reeves in "Speed"): I actually fell in love with Keanu when I saw "Speed" for the first time. When you're on a bombed bus with Jack Traven, things look a little bit more pleasant.

- Logan/ Wolverine (Hugh Jackman in "X-Men"): I think he's my favourite superhero. Oh god, guys with beards and sideburns!

There are other heroes, like people who I just admire because of their achievements. Like Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone in "Rocky), Dian Fossey (Sigourney Weaver in "Gorilla's in the Mist") and Forrest Gump (Tom Hanks in "Forrest Gump").

Meet Oscar

I told you recently that my friends Evelien and Irene got me a rabbit for my birthday. I had to wait a while, because he wasn't six weeks old yet. Yesterday I could finally pick him up. His name is Oscar and this is him:

When we picked him up, I put him in a box. When I wanted to get out of the car I handed over the box, with Oscar in it, to Evelien. Then he jumped out, in a bush!!!!!! I could grab him just in time. Panic!!!! Who tought a six week old rabbit could jump that high??? But he is the sweetest rabbit. And Irene and Evelien gave me the best birthday present ever! Thanks girls!
