Our kitchen is 2 weeks into renovation and it is much harder living with it than I thought it would be. Rather than complain about something I entered into willingly (although woefully ignorantly,) I’ll swipe a meme from Spo’s Blog, which I think will be more enjoyable to read.
1 – What is your favorite movie to see at Halloween?
“It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” and/or “Practical Magic.”
2- What was your favorite Hallowe’en costume as a child?
Never liked dressing up in costume, but super-hero costumes were always my favorite.
3- Given enough money what would be your fantasy Hallowe’en costume?
Alan Scott, the original Green Lantern; by “enough money,” that includes not just being able to have the costume made professionally, but also being able to hire a physical trainer and nutritionist to get me in shape so I’d look good in it.
4 – What is your favorite Hallowe’en candy?
Peanut Butter Cups or Caramels
5 – What is your supernatural fear?
I don’t believe in the supernatural, but I find the thought of demons the most unsavory.
6 – Your ‘creepy-crawlie’ fear?
Spiders – then snakes.
7 – Your ‘that’s gross” fear?
Any kind of mutilation
8 – Have you ever heard a ghost or heard something go bump in the night?
I have heard noises I could not find causes for. Have never believed them to be ghosts or anything supernatural.
9 -Are you a traditionalist or a creative carver of you Jack-o-Lantern?
If I carve one (which is rare), I’m a traditionalist. Can’t imagine wasting my time carving art into a pumpkin that’s going to rot and not last.
10 – Do you know/have a favorite ghost story?
Despite my lack of belief, I do enjoy most ghost stories if told well and in the right atmosphere. I enjoy getting “spooked,” just not late at night or when I’m alone. Lack of belief does not mean lack of vivid imagination.
11 – Do you know someone who is “Anti-Halloween”?
I’m often considered “anti-halloween.” I’m not. I neither love it nor hate it, or care about it much at all. I give out candy (if I’m home), I have gone to Halloween parties in costume, and I like some of the Halloween specials. I could take it or leave it. It all depends on my mood. And I looooove candy.
12- Do you decorate the house at Hallowe’en?
My husband is not a fan of decorating for Halloween. I could go either way. When we bought our house and started handing out candy 5 years ago (to foster good relations with our neighborhood) we put a green light bulb in our front porch light. Then we got a little light up pumpkin we put in the window. This year, I will put out a light up green monster (given to me, as a gift, as a pseudo flying spaghetti monster) on our front porch. We also dress the dogs in outfits (now, tell me that’s not evil.)
13- What do you want on your Tombstone?
No tombstone. I’ll be cremated. But if someone were to put up a plaque in my honor for some reason, I’d like it to say “He lived as honestly as possible and loved dogs.”
Finally, to take a queue from Spo, I’ll post my favorite Hallowe’en song:
