A Bit of Fun............



Let's have a few laughs, seeing as Halloween is coming. Consider yourself tagged for this meme :10 Things that I am Afraid of.

1. Our crawlspace- which is huge. I once had to get on the "creepy crawler" to retrieve some fish medicine - but other than that, no way, no how will I go in there. (eta; Alex keeps all his fish supplies in a cabinet in there, as well as the server.)

2. Dress forms- like mannequins- and I tried to conquer my fear by getting Fred and Ginger, as well as visiting a place that sells used ones. The owner told me they had a flood in the basement, and there were arms and legs floating around in the dark---whooo!

3. The organ music from "The Ghost and Mr. Chicken"- a camp movie, but it always freaked me out. (..and they used Bon Ami)

4. The way the Victrola starts playing by itself- Laura has a Victrola. It freaks me out.

5. Remember back in the old days when the television stations would sign off?- I would shut the tv off and cheese it up the stairs before the national anthem- and the screen would go black.

6. Black Christmas- and here's the house.

7. Pin- A Plastic Nightmare- again, the mannequin theme.

8. Remember that strange noise the phone used to make when you left it off the hook? I don't like that. Now it just beeps.

9. This Episode of "The Twilight Zone"- "The After Hours"-

10. Joan Crawford- who was a lovely woman in her day, but what was up with those eyebrows?

Happy Halloween.

Um. Things with spinning blades, like lawnmowers and garbage disposals, freak me out...

Okay, why was the fish medicine in the crawlspace????

My niece when she was little was dreadfully afraid of these mannequins at the mall that didn't have any heads. She'd scream, hands, feet, body -noooooooooooooo headdddddddddddddd.

I want that house. Maybe even more than my castle.

Fun list! Crawlspaces are for crawlie things. Not us.
