Hallowe'en "13 Things" Tag!

Thanks to Natalie of Gothy Two Shoes for tagging me on this!  :-)

1. Favorite Halloween song?

"Monster Mash"!!  I especially like the Groovie Ghoulies video version on YouTube.
2. Witch or Vampire?

Depends on the year, I tend to switch back and forth.  But the witch usually wins.

3. Favorite thing about Halloween?


4. Halloween party or scary movie marathon?

A Hallowe'en party with a scary movie marathon running would be perfect!

5. Skeletons or Zombies?

Skeletons, every time!

6. Favorite Halloween candy?

If it's chocolate, it's my favorite.

7. Favorite Halloween movie?

"It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!"  When I was growing up, my mom and I watched it on TV every year.  After Stuart was born, we got the video and watched it every year.  And now I watch it every year on DVD, but I don't always wait until Hallowe'en!  ;-)

8. Favorite Halloween costume?

Believe it or not, my favorite costume was an angel.  My mom made it for me, and I had a 38" wingspan with the wings outlined in silver Christmas tree garland.  I had to take the bus to get to the church party, and it was hilarious getting on and off!  We had a spook alley, with tours led by a devil (of course!), and all the little kids stuck to me because they were scared.  (It was really too gruesome for the little ones.)  And the devil and I sniped at each other the whole time, it was totally fun!

9. Favorite Halloween store?

It used to be the Spirit Store, but they've gotten rather lame the past few years.  So now I don't have a favorite yet, still looking!

10. Jack-o-lanterns, yes or no?

I've never been a big fan, but the fancy-carved ones are killer!!  (Did you know the original Jack-o-lanterns were made with turnips???)

11. Bats or Black Cats? 

BOTH!!  I love them both, and we have 3.5 black cats at home.  So I've got cats and bats all over my home and office.

12. Is Halloween your favorite holiday?

Do you REALLY need me to answer this one???  Hmmmm???

13. Pumpkin spice latte or hot chocolate?

Absolutely, hot chocolate!  

I'm not going to tag anyone on this, as most people I read have already been tagged, but feel free to answer them if you want, and you can consider yourself tagged!


  1. I remember angel costumes with garland around the edges! LOL

    I really have to ask - how does a person have three and half black cats? :)

    1. Easy... three all-black ones, and a black/white bicolor. ;-)

  2. Replies
    1. Glad to know someone else remembers and appreciates them! :-)

  3. That costume sounds amazing!

    3.5 cats? So three adults and a kitten? Or a dumb one? Is that politically incorrect?

    1. Hehehe, well, one IS pretty dumb... but I don't think they care about PC, so we just won't mention it! ;-)

      Actually, three are all black, and one is a black/white bicolor, so three and a half!
