Borrowed from the delightful Ur-Spo!!!

Are you scared of bats?

Not as a rule, although at the last place we lived, we had three of them get into our apartment from the shared attic over the course of a five month period. Not fun at all…


When you were a kid, did you go out on Mischief Night?

No. I was a good little boy!


What is your favorite trick-or-treat candy?

Peanut Butter Cups.


Have you ever seen a ghost?

Not specifically. I do remember waking up one morning when I was a child and seeing the image of a skull on my bedroom wall. It faded away after a few seconds. When I got up I found out that my maternal grandmother had died that morning…


The most memorable costume you ever wore?

A “Disney Store”, Adult-sized, “Hundred and One Dalmations” costume. I was the cutest thing!


Do you carve a happy or a scary face on the pumpkin?



Any cooking or baking you do for Hallowe’en?



Have you ever been to The Haunted Mansion at Disneyland or


Yes. I went to the Disneyworld one over twenty years ago. I suppose it must have changed somewhat since then…


Any element of the season you don’t like?

The whole “fundamentalist” view that it’s “Satanic” and also the low-lifes who view it as a valid excuse for vandalism.


What is your favorite scary movie?

Sleepy Hollow.


Do you cook the pumpkin seeds from your carved jack-o-lanterns?

No. Pumpkin seeds gag me.


Are you intrigued with vampires?

I have read all of the Anne Rice novels, but, they’re not my favorite monster.

    Is that your favorite candy to give or to get? If you’re giving it, when is T’r’T in your neighborhood? I’ll see if I can rent a dalmation costume. I want to be as cute as can be, if you’re giving out p’nut butter cups!
