it's almost halloween. are you scared?

Tuesday, October 23, 2012

Every morning on my way to work, I hear a local haunted house advertised on the radio.  (Austinites, it's House of Torment.  Killing the radio waves, aren't they?)

This haunted house has three "houses" this year, each with a different theme.  One is called  Cursed:  The Howling.  One is called The Slaughterhouse.  And the third is called The Awakening.  And it has this in store for you:
In the wake of the prophesied apocalypse in 2012, the end of days has opened a portal of dark energy that is centuries old. With the humans escaping his grasp and the undead hordes battling his Soul Reaper Army, Commander Nemesis has chosen world annihilation over potential defeat. In an act of unthinkable destruction, Nemesis self-destructed the reactor that powers his vessel—The Reckoning. The cataclysmic event caused an explosion of dark energy that erupted through the world simultaneously ripping holes through the fabric of time and space. The fiends of old and the horrors of the unknown have now been awakened and they pour into the earth hungry and foul…
 Uh huh.  No way, dude.  I am scared just writing this.

I was a chicken.  Then, I became a mother.  And then I became Queen of the Chickens.  

I don't watch horror movies.  I got scared just going to the House of Torment website.  You literally could not pay me enough money to go to the House of Torment.  No dice.  

That's not to say that I hate Halloween.  On the contrary, I love it.  D and I love to dress up.  We love to dress Jack up.  And, dare I say it, this year our collective costumes might just blow everyone out of the high seas.

I love pumpkins, candy corn, changing leaves, bobbing for apples, trick or treating, and the lore of Halloween that does not involve things like undead hordes and chainsaws.  Thankyouverymuch.

And evidently, Jack shares my approach to the holiday. And would like to add to this list that he likes painting bats at school.


Do you love Halloween?  Am I the only chicken out there?

Hope your day is free of hungry zombies.

Talk soon,
Heather

  1. I 150% will never EVER go to a place with a fake slaughterhouse and blood and pretend killers. And pay $25 for someone to make me cry. NO. Never.

  2. I used to be chicken-ish. I could watch "scary" movies, but not slasher flicks. Then I became a mother. Now, I can't even watch most of the news... it's all too horrible!

    No haunted houses ever. Just no.

  3. I HATE being scared and haunted houses scare the bejeebus out of me. Seriously, I even had to fast forward over the last episode of "Modern Family" because it got scary towards the end. Cluck cluck.

  5. I am a total chicken. Chris has been trying to get me to watch The Walking Dead but, no matter how good the story line is, I just can't take zombies.
