Halloween Meme

1. What's the scariest movie you've ever seen?

The scariest movie I've ever seen wasn't even a Halloween movie or a horror movie. It was a western--"Ulzana's Raid". I couldn't even finish watching it. For horror--I like subtle stuff like Alfred Hitchcock. "Psycho" was nice and scary.

2. What was your favorite Halloween Costume from childhood, and adulthood?

I'm not one to dress up myself, but I enjoy other's costumes. We have a guy at work who is great--last year he was Dog, the Bounty Hunter. A few years ago, he was the Joker. Excellent costumes. I also get a kick out of people dressing up as things like tacos or other ordinary things. And a dachshund dressed up as a hot dog always makes me smile.

3. If you had an unlimited budget, what would your Fantasy Costume be for this Halloween?

I would love to do a really good medieval costume--perhaps a squire's wife. Not too fancy and not too plain.

4. When was the last time you went Trick Or Treating?

When I was a little kid.

5. What's your favorite Halloween Candy?

I guess Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. That's my favorite anytime candy.

6. Tell us about a scary nightmare you had.

I will pass on this one--I've had nightmares since I was a small child. I can even still remember parts of some of them. I am not about to talk about them

7. What is your Supernatural Fear?

I'm not sure what this question is asking for, but I would say something like what happened in Stephen King's Pet Sematery. That was the book that scared me too much to ever read Stephen King again, even though I think he is a good writer.

8. What is your Creepy-Crawlie Fear?

I'm not overly afraid of creepy crawlies, but I don't like to have bugs crawl on me and I wouldn't want to be alone in a room with a rat.

9. Tell us about a time when you saw a ghost, or heard something go Bump in the night.

It hasn't been often and I don't want to talk about it.

10. Would you ever stay in a real Haunted House overnight?

No. I have a vivid imagination and even if nothing happened, I'd be scared silly.

11. Are you a traditionalist (just a face) Jack O'Lantern Carver, or do you get really creative with your pumpkins?

I don't carve pumpkins, but if I did, I would want to get some of those fancy stencils you see these days and do something beautiful.

12. How much do you decorate your home for Halloween?

I don't decorate for holidays as a rule. Nothing against it, but I live by myself so it really isn't important to me.

13. What do you want on your Tombstone?

Sausage, Peppers, and Onions. (I couldn't resist!)

Now I'm off to find someone to tag.

Hi Mary! I enjoyed your list. I don't like scary movies either. I like your approach to Halloween.

Then I tagged myself.

I don't know about scariest but I think Godzilla VS Space Godzilla is a classic! When I was young, we used to take a nap so we could watch Creature Feature, which would often feature a B Movie or something from Abott and Costello.

I liked my costume of "Worldy Woman" where I wore a globe on my head. Try dancing like that it; it sure isn't easy.

I hate scary dreams. Where a head like wizard of oz was peering in the window and I think I did a little levitating. I can fly a lot of times in dreams but I seem to be trying to get away from people and things. I don't seem to fly high enough. And if I am in a house with all sorts of secret hidden rooms, I am still not able to hide from those that chase me.

Have a Fun time on the 31st!
