Scary Me!!

Today Lynne had one of those quiz thingies on her blog and you all know how much I love those! So here is mine....

What Your Halloween Habits Say About You
The scariest thing on Halloween is you! You definitely don't want any kids in costumes crossing your path - and you're willing to scare away any who do.
No one quite understands you, but everyone also sort of worships you. And that's exactly how you like it.
Your inner child is open minded, playful, and adventurous.
You fear people taking advantage for you. You are always worried about protecting your own interests.
You're prone to be quite emotional and over dramatic. Deep down, you enjoy being scared out of your mind... even if you don't admit it.
You are a traditionalist with most aspects of your life. You like your Halloween costume to be basic, well made, and conventional enough to wear another year.

I'm not sure it sounds quite like me though. Am I that scary?? I hope not! I hope I don't scare away any little kids. Although this year we might not have many visitors since HB has to be in bed very early (like 8 PM) and I will have to turn off the porch light by then. So hopefully any little kids coming to our house will arrive early in the evening so they can get their treats.

I don't think I spend much time worrying about anyone taking advantage of me either. I usually go with treating people like I want to be treated and they usually do the same. As for the costume, I have been a gypsy more than any other thing for Halloween. It was my first ever costume and I repeated it many more times over the years. As a kid it was because I got to wear tons of jewelry and make-up! And I guess when I think about it, it was the same when I grew up!!

And the part about loving to be scared out of my mind....I don't think so!! I hate scary movies and refuse to watch them no matter what. I can sometimes read a scary book but haven't done that in quite awhile. I remember reading The Exorcist (never saw the movie!) and being creeped out by it but that was a long time ago.

This year I haven't done any Halloween decorating. I usually do a little bit but this year it's been so un-Halloween-like with temperatures in the 80's that I can't seem to get in the spirit. And I'm going to be a big party-pooper and miss Halloween in Bloglandia, too. I just can't seem to get a costume together.


  1. I haven't decorated for Halloween this year either...I don't have a pumpkin on my porch yet.
    I think some of the profile is you, I think you have a adventureous (can't spell)soul, I see it in your art.
    I will take the test and see if it sounds like me....ME

  2. I have barely anything decorated for Halloween either. Actually with the way the house looks during the studio project it COULD be classified as a Haunted House or at least a scary one!
    As for the don't have to wear a costume...just do a Halloween post of some kind....weird images, funny food, another ghost story...whatever! I won't be in a costume.
    Anyway, I mainly wanted to drop off some love here, it's been awhile!

  3. The quiz was cute, although I think I'll wait and post mine on my blog!

    We're expecting 75+ kids in our neighborhood...

    Have a great day!

  4. Well, my results on the test were the same as yours. I'm so not into Halloween. I think growing up in the country it is just the end of October and that's about it, to me.

  5. I've barely done any decorating this year, either. I did get out my ceramic pumpkins and stuck my stuffed raven on the birdhouse on the porch, but that's about it - but usually we get much more into the spirit, lol.

  6. I took the test - of course:) - and mine says I'm a friendly person but not the life and soul of the party and I'm a traditionalist. Actually it was surprisingly accurate!! I have my pumpkins ready to carve (classically!!) tomorrow and need to get my little homemade ghosts and bats down out of the loft ready to decorate the porch too.

  7. Hehe, mine said I "was friendly but not the life of the party!" hehe. Exactly! I always love the quizes you share. Not much up here either. A few pumpkins on the porch which the hub and kid will cut out Halloween evening. That's about it. Boo hiss.

  8. ...Ewww I don't like scary movies either.I read the Exorcist too...with all the lights on. It was better than the movie!

  9. I have not decorated either and am going to skip that part of halloween. Going of course to give out candy, dont know what my new puppy Sofie is going to think.
    And the Excorist (spelled wrong) scared the crap out of me when I was younger still remember her turning her whole head around. Now when I see it looks pretty cheesy but back then it creeped me out for weeks.

  10. Well,,you sure don't scare me!!!
    I think your anything but scary. I would love to see you dressed up like a Gypsy. I just went to a Halloween party this week-end and had a blast. First time in years I have been to one. We never get Trick or Treaters here, our road is too busy and kids are gone and grown now. Hope you have Ghoulishly Good Halloween.

  11. Hi Janet, thank for good thoughts! no your not going crazy :). I decorate for the season more than for halloween. Lots of pumpkins - only a couple of them with faces. orange mini lights in the kitchen in living room for a festive air and I do let one ghost hang in my window. A friendly 'Casper' type. oh, and my witches hat, of course, sits on a lamp.
