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.
