Halloween Meme

Okay, I’ve never done one of these before. But it being Halloween, it seemed strangely appropriate. I stole this one from Chelle 😉

  1. What is the scariest movie you have ever seen? The original Alien. I can remember being so impacted by it, I could almost swear I checked inside my closets and under my bed till the day I left home for the Navy. I was that scared.
  2. What was your favorite Halloween costume from childhood? I didn’t do much trick or treating as a child. My mom didn’t like us doing it because she didn’t want us to have all the candy. The only costume I remember is this really lame Casper costume with the plastic face mask cutting into me.
  3. If you had an unlimited budget, what would be your ideal Halloween costume? I have no idea. I went out as a Dr. this year and as Daisy Duck last year (don’t ask). I was gonna go as a Pirate Wench, but changed my mind. Hmm… it could have been fun, though.
  4. When was the last time you went trick-or-treating? Last year, but I’ll go out tonight too.
  5. What is your favorite Halloween candy? It really does vary. I like candy a lot. I really like Smarties, Sweetarts and Bottlecaps. But I can get by with a lot of stuff. I try to keep the sweets to a minimal these days so as to avoid spiking my insulin levels. It gets harder to deal with it as I get older. 🙁
  6. Tell us a scary nightmare you have had in your life. To date, my scariest nightmares still have to do with me waking up and realizing I missed my final examine. It never matters the class and this was a recurring nightmare for years. I guess it didn’t help that I went through college simply taking my tests and not going to classes. It’s amazing I ever made it 😉
  7. What is your Supernatural Fear? Um… IDK! LOL! Remember that movie “Scanners”? I used to wish I could make people’s heads explode just by my thoughts. Years later I can at least make their heads hurt by my thought, LOL!
  8. What is your Creepy-Crawlie fear? Cockroaches creep me out. SO… any thought or movie of them does me in pretty good. Oh yeah, I don’t like black widows or brown recluses. I get massive heebie jeebies checking shoes that have been sitting idle for a few months.
  9. Tell us about a time you saw a ghost or heard something go bump in the night? The closest thing I can think of is right after I became a Christian. I can recall waking up and feeling myself pinned down in my dorm room bed. A demon appeared to me and let me know that “they” were very angry with me and that they were never going to cease tormenting me. As soon as I was able to move again, I called up a friend of mine, but she didn’t believe anything happened. She was convinced I just had a dream. A while later I mentioned the dream to my singles pastor and he confided in me how he had a similar experience shortly after he became a Christian too. It really freaked me out as I simply couldn’t move.
  10. Would you ever stay in a Haunted House overnight? Uh… no! I don’t really believe in ghosts, but I’m also not going to start double dog daring demons to scare the crap out of me either.
  11. Are you a traditionalist (just a face) Jack O’ Lantern, or do you get really creative with your pumpkin. Um… just a face. I can’t see dressing them up or anything.
  12. How much do you decorate your house for Halloween? Not much. LOL! Others do that. I just buy all the candy and eat it 😉
  13. What do you want on your Tombstone? Pepperoni 😉 Actually, I have no idea. I suppose I’d like it to say something to the effect that I lived what I believed.

Happy Halloween to all of you! I hope you all have a fun, safe night.

  1. Wait a second… You were going to go as a pirate WENCH this year? LMAO. I thought you were looking at those costumes for someone else! That’s awesome. You need to talk to Hoop. I wanted HIM to be the angel this year (and me the devil) but he wasn’t going for the wings.

    I hope you guys have a fun and safe night!

  2. Awww…you finally did a meme… 🙂 How cute you are, lol!

    Out of ALL the scary movies out there, Alien is “THE” scariest?!?!?! Huh…

    So if Cockroaches creep you out that much, I bet you really don’t like that scene from Creepshow where the spotless clean, OCD dude’s apartment is overrun with cockroaches, eh? (Do you even know what scene I’m talking about????)

  3. I actually knew the answers to those quesions about you before I read them! 😉 I was shocked to see you steal these from me. You’re getting into this blog thing.

  4. Tink: I was going as one. I had showed you that really cute costume. But I couldn’t get someone else to want to go with a pirate theme 😉 And tell Hoop I said he was a chicken. If my significant other wanted me to wear wings…

    EE: Thanks! 🙂 I don’t remember that episode. But they totally creep me out. BIG TIME!

    David: You’re too funny! If you haven’t got one, we need to get you a girlfriend. LOL!

    Chelle: I figure you’d know some answers 😉 And I must be getting into it. I’m learning that I don’t have to come up with much– just steal it from others, hehe.

  5. Geez, I was describing to you what I was feeling when I was like 15 (I think the original one was out in the early 80’s) and now you are telling me I need a girlfriend?

  6. David: I’m kidding 😉 It was a while ago. I think it was more like late 70’s. I think I was in the 5th grade or something like that. I don’t think I had a thing for her at that point.

  7. Oh I know that. When you are 15, anything that moves…

    What really scared me was Carrie. Didn’t find Sissy Spacek particularly attractive and the sacreligious aspect always scares me whereas the aliens are just a bunch of cartoon characters.

  8. David: LOL! Carrie did nothing for me either. Before I became a Christian, movies like that never bothered me. I can still remember seeing the Exorcist and only being moderately scared. But that was all.

    After I became saved, I couldn’t even re-watch such movies. I stay away from them as they really creep me out.

    I’m not sure what it was about the original Alien that scared me so much. I can recall they really safe guarded pics of the alien monster to ensure it would be extra scary. These days it’s nothing to watch. I even took Brendan to see Alien vs. Predator when he was 5. He loved it. 😉 Gee, I’m a great role model, huh?

  9. EE: I have seen Creepshow before. I think there are a couple, right? I just don’t remember that particular one. Why do you keep bringing this up? Do you want to creep me out with cockroaches? LOL!
