What is it about the day after Halloween and smashing pumpkins?

This morning, I took the bus to RadFae coffee, and in almost every neighbourhood we rode through, the remains of smashed pumpkins could be seen in the streets. It seems almost everyone in Bellingham decided to get rid of their Jack-O-Lanterns by throwing them into the street. What an orange, goopy mess! Ah well, at least it's biodegradable.

After I got off the bus, I walked across Railroad Ave. (the bar district) on the way to the coffee house. Downtown was TRASHED! There must have been one hell of a party down there last night, because candy wrappers and beer bottles were EVERYWHERE! I even saw the occasional discarded witch's hat and costume pieces... I really should have gone down there last night!

Apparently, there was a bit of guerrilla theatre during the festivities, when scores of zombies blocked traffic to perform a choreographed rendition of Michael Jackson's "Thriller" in the middle of street. I wish I could have seen it... fortunately, someone uploaded it to YouTube:

Gotta love Bellingham!
