Favourite horror or Halloween-themed song?  Or a song you rarely hear except around a holiday.

Wait, there are horror songs? I had no idea. I’ve been pretty open about how Halloween’s not really my thing. I’ve never really delved into why that is…I don’t like being scared; also, I’m big on things being true to what they are which flies in the face of a holiday built around disguise.

Phew, that’s a long way to say I don’t have a favorite song like this.

Do you ever see figures in your peripheral vision?👻

Yes. I’ve been told lately that’s not such a great thing.

Which urban legend scares you the most? (most countries have such stories – share yours if you would like to)  🦇

Why can’t I remember any urban legends????? It’s breaking me. The only thing in my head is what’s that one about snatching up girls except, y’know, that’s real life so…

You’re home alone but you hear footsteps in your house, what do you do?

  1. Freak out.
  2. Talk myself through freaking out because it’s bad for my blood pressure.
  3. Remind myself how many people live in my house.
  4. And that two of our animals have real thump-y footsteps.
  5. Feel panicky when I remember rule #1 is to trust your gut so why am I still in this house?
  6. Fight off the urge to run screaming and go investigate.

What is your favourite season?

Sorry, hate when people do this but it’s an even split between fall and spring. Fall when we’re just moving into cooler days but the sun still warms your face outside. Spring when we’ve finally come out of the cold/sleet season. In a more temperate climate — say, high of 75° — summer might actually win this category for its laid back pace.
