I've gotten the pumpkin, and the saws are laying around. Now just need a design. I should probably wait till next weekend to carve so it's not rotten by Halloween anyway. Can't wait!

EDIT: Done! (My "official" entry with me in the picture is on page 3)

Or maybe you could use a prop to carve it with.

Hey, APC props are a good substitute for an exacto in a pinch!
And the pylon racing guys have some fancy serrated edge props for the big cuts too!
