Halloween Questions

      Today, another Tumblr-meme. A list of Halloween themed questions – which seem appropriate given that its mid-October. Right? Whee!
      Let’s dig in and see what *BOO!* I have in-store.

  • What’s your favourite scary movie or story?
  •       That’s impossible. I love scary movies and stories. Right now, I’m totally into “The Walking Dead” (like most of America) and so that’s probably my choice for the moment.

  • Favourite horror or Halloween-themed song?
  •       The “Halloween” theme song gives me chills to this day.

  • What are some things you’re most afraid of?
  •       Failure. Death. Snakes. My teeth falling out. Mushrooms growing out of my flesh.

  • Does anything creep you out but in a good way?
  •       Of course – that’s why I dig horror movies!

  • Name something you wouldn’t want to run into down a dark alley or in an abandoned building.
  •       Illithids. Beholders. My ex-fiance.

  • Favourite horror monster or villain?
  •       Classic Dracula/Vampire

  • Do you believe in ghosts?
  •       I want to say no, but then again – I am fairly sure I used to hear my Great-Grandmother rocking upstairs in her chair when I lived in the Thorp Farmhouse (when she was long dead and the chair was long gone).

  • The creepiest thing that’s ever happened while you were alone?
  •       See previous question. Also, the time I thought (as a small – say, 8 years old – child) I saw a serial murderer/arsonist as my sister and our friend, Shelly, and I walked through the recently burned down wildlands behind our house. We FUH-REAKED the eff out – totally mental psych-out.

  • What’s the best Halloween costume you’ve ever seen or worn?
  •       …uh, witch? Repeatedly as a child. Or um… a zombie one year.

  • Best Halloween experience?
  •       Most years, as a kid, dressed up and getting candy.

  • Ever been to a haunted house?
  •       Yes! They’re fun and scary and horrible and awesome! I want to go to one this year, but we probably can’t afford it.

  • What about a cornfield maze?
  •       Yes, but not a scary one.

  • If you were dared to spend the night in a “haunted house”, would you do it?
  •       Uhhh, is there a million bucks cash in it for me? Like in “House on Haunted Hill”?

  • Have any specific Halloween traditions?
  •       We used to carve pumpkins every year. Make roasted pumpkin seeds. Pass out candy. Dress-up. Mark and I don’t do any of that. We always talk about “doing it right this year” but we never quite manage it. It’ll be different once we have kids.

  • Are you superstitious?
  •       A little more than I’d like to be. Hah!
