Sunday Stealing

(Link in meme-roll)
Halloween Meme

1. What is the worst treat to get when trick-or-treating?
Toothpaste, or Jack Chick tracts.
2. What character from any horror film would you most like to play?
I don't really do horror films, so none. Either I'd be saying I want to be a victim or a crazed killer. Neither appeals.
3. Would you rather be a zombie, alien, or psycho? (why)
In real life or as a costume?? IRL=alien. Costume=zombie.
4. How many Halloween, Friday the 13th, or Nightmare on Elm Street movies combined do you have on dvd?
Not a single one, thanks. Even Beast hasn't bought them, and he will at least sit through them!
5. What is the scariest movie you have ever seen?
Psycho is definitely up there. In a different direction entirely, Platoon and Shoah are also terrifying.
6. Lamest costume you have worn on Halloween?
I haven't worn a costume in quite some time, so ... those. We are costuming tomorrow at work though, so I'll be "did up."
7. Favorite Halloween treat?
I liked all the variety of things in the bag, to be honest. Except lollipops--I never really "got" suckers. I mean I got them to eat, but the attraction frankly escapes me.
8. Friendly-faced jack o’lantern or scary one?
Don't really care, but it should have something to do with Halloween, yes? So "Hamilton" pumpkins, "C" (Cubs or Cleveland) pumpkins, random letters on pumpkins....no. They're very artistic and all (sometimes) but NOT Halloween-y.
9. Have you ever had nightmares about a scary movie character chasing you?
I did as a child. I don't have too many "chasing me in terror" dreams anymore. My bad dreams are usually stress, yelling, and falling.
10. Best thing about Halloween?
Are you kidding? The candy of course! For me, I like the kids' costumes as they wander the neighborhood too.
11. Strangest Halloween custom you’ve heard of?
I can't help but feel sorry for countries without pumpkins. England has a lot of carved turnips, and it just doesn't work as well. (Even if that's where the whole tradition started, apparently)
12. Person in your family who most likes Halloween (not counting yourself)?
Uhm. I'd say Beast and I are about tied on this. One thing I really hate is having to work till halfway through trick-or-treat hours .... I miss all the little kids.
13. Are you superstitious? If so, name at least one superstition of yours.
I'm not really. I do try hard not to say certain patrons' names out loud at work because even when they've been gone awhile, it seems to bring them back in the building. I'm not kidding, either: Red-Faced Man was gone for easily 3 years, and no sooner did I bring him up than (boom) two weeks later he reappeared. smh
14. What's your best Halloween memory?
I really enjoy handing out candy to kids. There was one year that was so warm that I literally had the screen-door window open like a Dutch door handing candy over it.
15. At what age were you allowed to go trick-or-treating by yourself?
Probably about 10. I don't honestly remember, but I had to be done before it got dark.

I have that problem, too. I think of someone I haven't seen in a long time, and then BAM, there they are in the grocery store. It is weird.

Yes to you and Country Dew! I'm the same way!!
