Friday, October 2, 2015 I found my favorite childhood Halloween movie & Tag You're It...

The Curious Professor Z  tagged lil ol’ me in a Halloween tag and since I LOVELOVELOVE to fill out surveys (no seriously, I do. Those surveys on receipts… I totally fill them out!) BUT, it’s also Professor Z so I kind of have to because we’re friends and all!

So I must tag some bloggers. :)

1. Favorite Halloween song? Hands down… no questions asked "Monster Mash" Bobby "Boris" Pickett & The Crypt-Kickers (1962). Nothing gets me more excited about the holiday.
2. Witch or Vampire? Um, anyone who knows me understands that vampires are more than an obsession for me. I teach a vampire course!

3. Favorite thing about Halloween? It’s fun! For a very short period of time everyone around me loves what I love year ‘round. Sometimes I walk into stores not planning to buy anything just because I want to be around the Halloween merchandise. There is also something magical this time of year. The weather and scenery are finally starting to change. I also LOVE candy. Yeah, yeah, yeah I like chocolate like others do but I like JUNK KID'S CANDY... anything with a vampire or bat (like the Mike & Ike Vampire Variety or the Veggie Chips Ghosts + Bats) I buy and eat. I also get to come home to fun surprises like this evening I walked in to see that my fella added bats to my bathroom mirror. Awwwwww!
4. Halloween party or scary movie marathon? Can I blend the two? Halloween movie marathon… I had no idea that Professor Z would have ever liked the Halloweentown movies. OMG ME TOO! I record nearly every dorky Halloween movie and watch it. I have gone to Halloween parties in the past and sometimes I host them but last year we started a new tradition of seeing The Taters Halloween Spooktacular! at Ashland Coffee & Tea. My fella is long-time friends with some of the members of the band. People dress up and we listen to spooky music!
5. Skeletons or Zombies? For Halloween, Skeletons because they’re fun. Zombies scare the shit out of me.
6. Favorite Halloween candy? YES Please!

7. Favorite Halloween movie?  Okay I didn't have a title in my head anymore because it was so long ago but there was this ridiculously awesome movie from the 1980s that I watched on television and it represented (in my head) everything that I loved about Halloween. Through the magic of the internet, I just typed in the more hilarious keyword search (1980 movie television Halloween guy falls for dead girl cheerleader... yep, that was my keyword search) and I FOUND IT! It's a Halloween miracle. So for your viewing pleasure (and mine because I haven't seen this since I was a little me!), I present to you

The Midnight Hour - ABC TV (1985).

“When teenagers unleash an ancient witch's curse...the dead return to liven up Halloween!

It's Halloween night, and the local teenagers have unwittingly unleashed an ancient curse that will turn their quiet New England town upside down! A group of uninvited guests -- ghosts, ghouls, vampires and angry zombies -- leave the graveyard to join in the Halloween celebration! Now, the spirited teens have only a few hours until midnight to reverse the curse, and save the town from ghastly visitors. The result is a hilarious blend of humor and horror.

The Midnight Hour is an enjoyable cross between Night of the Living Dead and An American Werewolf (Video Movie Guide), a treat filled with tricks and entertainment for the whole family!

The Midnight Hour aired on ABC on November 1, 1985”
The new batty necklace!
8. Favorite Halloween costume? I really don’t have a favorite but I’m a traditionalist. I don’t think people should dress up like princesses or prom queens unless they’re dead princesses and dead prom queens.

9. Favorite Halloween store? Pottery Barn for home décor and Heidi Daus for her Halloween jewelry

10. Jack-o-lanterns, yes or no? YES!

11. Bats or Black Cats? ^o^ ^o^ ^o^
12. Is Halloween your favorite holiday? Nope, it’s a lifestyle choice ;D
13. Pumpkin spice latte or hot chocolate? This morning I had a Salted Caramel Mocha but I like Pumpkin Spice Lattes as well. I’m an equal opportunity drinker!


  1. "Is Halloween your favorite holiday? Nope, it’s a lifestyle choice ;D" Love it!

    Also I have to agree zombies are scary!

    1. Don't get me wrong, I love a good zombie movie but I'm pretty sure my blood pressure is through the rough when I'm watching them.

  2. I have a battery powered plush Boris Karloff which sings the monster mash, holding a pumpkin that does the harmonies. It's awesome!

    I have to confess I have never tried a pumpkin latte; it seems kind of a big thing over in the States. It just sounds...wrong! I may have to try one to see what the fuss is all about :)

    1. Oh my gothy stars! You need to post a video of the plush Boris in action!!!!

      Pumpkin lattes are pretty sweet. I'm usually a Cinnamon Lattee kind of girl because I think cinnamon is the most underrated spices. There should be cinnamon on everything! Recently I tried Jamba Juice's Pumpkin Smash, a pumpkin smoothie. It was like fall in a cup. Wasn't to sweet and a little weird but delicious.

  3. I loved reading your answers! I'm awful at doing tagged things tho ... you won't be mad at me if I don't participate, will you? I've said no to so many others, it might be weird if I did this one. I haven't blogged in so damn long I think my very first post needs to be one in which I thank everyone for all the awesome gifts they've sent me over the summer. :)

    1. No post-bullying here :D I always hated those darn chain letters!!! I just happen to like surveys. You post when you want to and about that which makes you happy.

  4. Awesome tag! Hehehe! Halloween IS a lifestyle ;) Love, love LOVE your necklace, looks wonderful on you!

  5. Oh, I thought I commented on this..?

    Thanks for tagging me! I am writing my post right now :)

  6. Gosh, I love your answers, thank you for the tag! ^_^ It's a dead prom queen or no prom queen at all! :D
