More Random Questions: Halloween Edition

I am going to have to check out this Sunday Social thing! (If I can ever get Tigger off the computer)  What great questions!

Halloween Edition

1.) What was your favorite Halloween costume as a kid?

Apparently it was a store-bought "Wile E. Coyote" costume, because I wore it from the time I could walk until it was too small. Then I got a C3PO costume. Since I was 7 when Star Wars came out, I know I was around 7 the year I wore that. I don't recall any others, but I was fondly thinking of a homemade throw-together costume I had when I was 12 (yes....when you have a little brother, you trick-or-treat far longer than you should). I was a princess. I wore my favorite velour bathrobe, a gold sheet and a tinfoil crown. My brother was a cowboy that year. All I remember is him pitching a fit. I think it took 20 minutes for them to come up with something for him to wear. 

2.) If you could go back and dress up as something, what would it be?

Lady the egg


3.) Favorite costume as an adult?

Ooooo....that's tough! From my teens/20's I have a kickin' witch/vampira outfit and an equally impressive flaming demoness outfit, with the standup collar. And there's always the Playboy bunny outfit I made from an old majorette uniform.
Now that I'm fat, it will have to be Maleficent, because it covers everything

4.) Favorite Halloween candy?

Call me weird, but I LOVE the orange and black wrapped peanut butter kisses. You can ONLY get those at Halloween, kinda like Cadbury eggs.

5.) Favorite Halloween memory?

I guess it would have to be the year I was 12, because it's a fond memory...well, aside from my brother's little tantrum.

Which actually, I remember being really funny...

6.) What’s your favorite scary movie?

Horror movies are more Darling Hubby's thing, but I did grow up in the perfect era for scary movies. Special effects were getting better and better, so every one that I saw (and believe you me, there wasn't one that I missed) were great. It's between the "Friday the 13th" franchise or the original "Nightmare on Elm Street."  Of course, I did grow up with a brother named Jason and an uncle named Fred...

But the movie that scared the bejeessus out of me, I'm told is actually not really all that scary, neither the original that made such a mark on my existence, or the recent remake.  It was a 1973 thriller called "Don't Be Afraid of The Dark." I remember watching it and being terrified of the floor furnace until we moved to the Leeds house.  I will also never forget the cold chill that ran up my spine last year when I watched the trailer for the remake and all that old fear came flooding back.

That's what a scary movie is all about.

Well, that is all the time I have today.
