    Hey Allison!

    You and I are of one mind when it comes to Fall! I absolutely LOVE Halloween and the harvest (Obviously from the last writing project). It is finally cool, and this is a time when my energy is really high! I am looking forward to the project and will be on as soon as I get back from seeing my kids in Maine!!!

    Hi Allison

    Pumpkin carving is a great way to express yourself on a pumpkin haaa. Its Art, I remembered when I carved a pumpkin. It was the traditional one with the triangular eyes and jagged teeth. But you see these professional pumpkin carvers carving a picture on the pumpkin its amazing. Don’t think they can carve your face on a pumpkin it would be tooo umm.

    I’m starting to love Autumn. I use to hate it cause Autumn meant cooler temps but now the crisp Midwestern air and pretty colorful leaves are rubbing off on me.

    I can’t wait to send in my pumpkins pictures. I don’t carve my pumpkins until the night before Halloween or they rot. I hope that’s not too late to send in my pic.

    Glad your back Allison <3

    Hi Guys,

    Yeah I love the changing seasons and seeing the leaves on trees changing colour. I’m going to try my hand at carving a pumpkin and looking forward at seeing everyones attempts-should be a lot of fun!

    Pumpkin carving is scary! (How scary is it?)
    Pumpkin carving is so scary that once a Jack-O-Lantern almost burned down a building, but it didn’t even have a candle in it!

    hi allison!=)
    i am from the Philippines, and i’d just like to share that here in our country, carving pumpkins is not everyone’s tradition for Halloween. Instead, what most people do here is light candles – with each candle reprsenting a deceased loved one’s soul.
    Halloween is still fun though, ‘coz some people go to Halloween parties with the costumes and props and all. trick and treat is seldom practiced too, generally speaking.
    but i sure hope a friend throws a Halloween party this time to have somewhere to go to!=)

    I’m so not into traditions…I just love this season. It’s my favorite time. I am curious though what creative people carv though.

    It’s not usually something I’d really get into but it sounds like a fun opportunity so this year I’ll give it a go…oh my god…I suddenly feel the urge to go trick or treating!

    Cool, i’ve seen some craved pumpkins, and yeah, It’s totally true that it’s an art. It would be nice to have pumpkins here in Costa Rica though =D

    OK Allison!

    The pumpkins are carved and I submitted them. My kids did them, and I thing they are beautiful!!! I am sorry for the quality of the picture. I used my cell phone. I am considering getting a new Digital video camera. I could use the camcorder, and I really want to get stills at the same time. What do you all think??

  • Jade Ruby

    on October 26, 2009 at 6:22 pm


    Today’s digital devices do both video and stills, so if you’re into longer videos for archiving, go with the camcorder, which will also take stills.

    Halloween is the best. Christmas is all chaotic and Independance day is very noisy. New Years has too much football. Halloween is really the best time to be yourself with no repercussions.

  • bwhited1968

    on October 27, 2009 at 4:21 am

    Thanks for the advice. I have a lot of stills, but I am beginning to wish I had more video… Kids grow up fast, and while my memories are locked in my mind, I would like some video. I think that will be my Christmas gift to myself this year.

    Hello Allison Mack my name is Jesus Max, I’m 22 years old, I’m fan of the personage of Chloe that you interpret in the serie of Smallville, I like very much how you interpret it, I like how the personage of Chloe is with Clark because it always supports it in everything and this one with both in the good moments and in the bad ones, I would like that at the end of the serie Chloe was remaining with Clark because she deserves it. Sometimes it bothers me when I read negative comments about the personage of Chloe, since there are some comments that attack it very hard trying to demoralize it, I believe that your personage of Chloe is so important as that personage of Lois because you have been constructing it during these eight years and are the right Clark hand and that nobody can deny it, I like very much your personage of Chloe and in case that there are too negative comments of your personage I would like defending it from these comments, I’m an intelligent person and I believe that the personage of Chloe might defend very well from all these negative comments, I hope that you should be good, it was a pleasure for me to greet you, farewell.

    This is true, despite ‘Lois & Clark’ — in Smallville Chloe does have the prior history.

    Hi All,
    I haven’t been here for a while but I’ve missed this forum. Good to be back.
    I don’t care for halloween much but I love all the autumn colours. I looked out of my window the other morning and the trees were just beautiful – and as the icing on the cake a small herd of deer were grazing on the lawn.
    Nature is just amazing!

    Well said! Allison please come back we miss you!!

    November is on us and we are well into a creative time of year. I am sure you have many projects going on. The leaves are leaving the trees and we all tend to slow down a little, however I doubt that is the way it is with your schedule. I am sure with the shoot schedule for not only Smallville, but any other projects as well as live performances you must be Crushed. I have just started my journey as I have documented for you as well as all of my friends here. Even my friends outside of the performing arts are wondering where I am, and I am only doing a few projects!
    Still, we do miss you.

    Jaja, it seems like we are really waiting for the next Allison’s post. But I guess she doesn’t have the time to do it, so, we’ll have to keep wating.

    you know?! I really miss Allison. I hope all is well with her. I’ve been praying for her, strength, understanding, direction, and just health. Allison, if your reading…everything has a way of making it’s self known in due time. watever that means. Lol. seriously though.

    I second what Smallvillekent just said. Be patient. We haven’t been forgotten.
    By the way, happy Thanksgiving everyone. It’s a pity this holiday isn’t big in Australia. This year I feel I have a lot to be thankful for.

  • Jade Ruby

    on November 25, 2009 at 6:00 am

    Allison, I certainly hope that you are having a good celebration this holiday season.

  • Jade Ruby

    on November 25, 2009 at 6:29 am

    Beth, isn’t there any harvest celebration in Australia, even if it’s not a nationally proclaimed one? (Although you’d think that by now there’d be a clamour for a new day off. . . err, holiday anyway)
