Arachnophagic Blue Jays of Golden Gate Park: Pumpkin Spider Goes to Heaven Just Six Days Before Halloween

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

This coastal Western Scrub Jay (Aphelocoma californica, aka California Jay, Long-tailed Jay ) in Golden Gate Park don’t like them spiders. You can tell because the blue jay spotted a web from a great distance, found a tasty, 8-legged, 4-eyed treat (Araneus trifolium, aka Pumpkin Spider) and then mashed it into bits.

Poor little feller. He almost made it to Halloween.*

Anyway, nummers!

Whether You’re Christian or Wiccan, Clancy’s Christmas Trees & Pumpkin Patch Satisfies – An Inner Sunset Tradition

Wednesday, October 6th, 2010

Well, Samhain / Halloween is almost here, so it’s time to check out Yelp-rated Clancy’s Christmas Trees and Pumpkin Patch in the Inner Funset* near Lawton and 7th Avenue.

But don’t be afraid to grab your Christian boy or girl and get on over there, as they’ll be welcome as well.

Who needs the suburbs? Who needs Half Moon Bay? Clancy’s has everything needed to satisfy all your pum’kin patch needs and it looks pretty good on a Dreaded Sunny Day:

Always remember, “Dropping Pumpkins Will Hurt Them.”

All right, Blessed Be and Merry Part.

See you there!

*Never ever joke around about how the Inner Sunset maybe, sometimes, just maybe has a bit of fog sometimes or about how there were six parking spaces a stone’s throw away from Park Chow available at eight-something PM on a cold winter’s night. The IS’ers, they don’t like that kind of talk. NOT ONE BIT!
