1. What's something you're dealing with that might be described as tricky?
I'm not going to answer my own question. It's something I don't really want to blog about, but it's definitely tricky.
What's Halloween week without a little mystery?
2. What's your treat of choice?
Hmmm...as in candy? Like trick or treat? If that's the case I'll take a Payday or a Mounds Bar please. If we're talking treats in general then a shopping spree through Nordstrom's shoe department would be pretty awesome.
3. Did you/will you carve a jack-o-lantern this month? Which real (living or dead) or fictional 'Jack' would you most like to meet in person? Why?
We did not carve a jack-o-lantern this month. Did we have time to carve a jack-o-lantern this month? It doesn't feel like we had a lot of spare minutes in October, plus no littles in the house to clean out the 'guts'.
Which Jack would I like to meet in person? Why Jack Bauer of course!
4. In your opinion, what's the grossest sounding word in the English language?
I'm going with crusty because ewwww! That word gives me the shivers. There was a sandwich shop in our little village in the UK called Mrs. Crusty's. I'm sure the food was fine, but my girls and I never did go in there, because crusty...ewwww.
5. When did your heart last skip a beat?
Probably the last time I was on an airplane. My heart skips lots of beats when I fly. Or it might have been my last visit to the dentist. I lose a few beats every time I'm in that chair.
6. Monster Mash by Bobby 'Boris' Pickett, Michael Jackson's Thriller, Werewolves of London by Warren Zevon or Ray Parker Jr.'s Ghostbusters...your favorite 'scary' tune?
Is everybody going to say Thriller? I imagine that will be the most picked, but I'm going out of the box on this one, and will say Werewolves of London.
You had to know I would.
We used to break into that song everytime we went to Chinatown to eat at Lee Ho Fooks. The restaurant closed while we were living in the UK, and I'm not sure we ever ordered the beef chow mein, but we definitely 'did some walking through the streets of Soho in the rain'.
Some of you have no idea what I'm talking about, do you?
Suffice it to say, music and memory go hand in hand.
7. It was a dark and stormy night when__________________________
Hurricane Sandy struck this time last year. Stormy doesn't even begin to describe the sound she made. It was scary. The storm made landfall on October 29th and one year later people are still displaced and many businesses continue to struggle, not just at the shore either. There are some literal ghost towns in this part of the country as a result of Sandy.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
Once upon a time there lived a bunny and a princess.
They were the sweetest in all the land.
Halloween, circa 1992
They still are.
