    Blogtober Day: XXXI – Final Night of Horror

    Well, here we are, Happy Halloween! I hope that everyone had an amazing month of October and got to partake in some festivities and fun. I totally slacked off this year with watching horror movies, I just wasn’t feeling it for some reason but I think it’s mostly because I was out doing other things this year more than any other. That’s OK too but in an effort to redeem myself, I rounded up 31 of my favourite horror movies and here they are in no particular order! I actually hadn’t seen this movie until just last year, I am not a huge Depp fan but ended up enjoying this…

    Blogtober Day: XXX – Least Favorite Halloween Candy

    We knew that there would have to be a follow-up to my favorites post from yesterday, this is a round up of candies that I recall loathing as a child or that I associate with The Great Depression (looking at you, Necco Candy Wafers) when sugar and butter and all things delicious were rationed or simply not available. What even is black licorice? Is it molasses with a shot of dirt – because that’s what it tastes like. It stains your teeth, you taste it for the next 24 hours, it has the gritty texture – gag. Can’t stand it. It’s also quite sinister looking, I mean, look at it……

    Blogtober Day: XXIX – Top Five Favorite Halloween Candy

    None of which I will get to be eating this year because of some extensive dental work and I’m pretty peeved off about it. What is Halloween without candy, I ask you? It’s just like any other day! Misery. Cavity free misery but misery nonetheless. There used to be only one flavour of these but now there are three including; Golden Delicious and Red Macintosh but my personal fave remains the original Green Apple. These suckers are the perfect combo of tart and sweet. Chocolate dipped, chewy perfection. I feel personally victimized by the fact that only 10 fun size boxes come in a bag, I need 20 at least.…

    31 Nights of Horror: The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (2018)

    Did I binge watch the entire 10 part series of this new Netflix original in one day? Yea, I totally did. Sabrina the Teenage Witch was an Archie comic about a witch (obviously) who has to navigate the perils of high school while getting up to hi-jinx with her aunts and familiar at home. In the same strain that Riverdale is loosely based on the original Archie’s, The Chilling Adventures are loosely based on the Sabrina comics. I was pretty disappointed in Riverdale, I think it’s a bizarre, totally off the wall adaptation and was expecting the same from this series. I’m sharing some spoilers so read no further if…

    Blogtober Day: XXVII – Best of October

    I am listening to the second Kathy Reichs/Dr. Brennan book and talk about a long slog of a book read by a mediocre narrator. I imagine that this is what I would sound like narrating a book, like a high-pitched Daria with unexpected accents thrown in for creative flare – the worst. I don’t think that you necessarily have to listen to all of the books in order to keep up with the story and I am about skip out on the 6 remaining hours of this one. I hate to be a quitter though. This post might be a bit long, I really dug into my everyday makeup bag…

    Blogtober Day: XXV – Spooky Food

    I am posting late due to my 2 hour dentist appointment followed by a 3 hour nap. I hate going to the dentist, not that she isn’t a nice person but all of those metal instruments stabbing at my teeth and the latex gloves, hate it. I had to get x-rays and I never noticed that after they drape you in that little apron they leave the room, head into the bomb shelter out back, take the image and then come back. How much radiation are we being exposed to?! Why can’t the technician just wear an apron too? I’m pretty certain that I don’t want anymore x-rays. If there’s…

    Blogtober Day: XXIV – Fall Television

    Growing up, we didn’t watch a lot of television and there were long periods of time when we didn’t even have one. Having a television in my home isn’t something that I see as mandatory and though I don’t have one now, I love watching new shows in the fall and winter. It makes no sense but good thing I can do everything from my phone or else I would miss out on one of my fave cold weather rituals. I’m also pleased that one doesn’t even need cable any longer since Netflix, Hulu and Prime make most shows available and are producing some amazing shows on their own. Who…

    31 Nights of Horror – The Ritual (2017)

    Ch-ch-ch-kah-kah-kah. Get ready for a whole lotta’ that because we’re going camping and we’re getting lost, of course and someone’s probably gonna’ die. We meet Phil, Dom, Rob, Luke and Hutch on an ill-fated evening at the pub. The friends are talking about a hiking trip into the wilds of Sweden but ultimately decide against this. The evening at a close, Luke and Rob decide on a trip to a liquor store where they are robbed and Rob suffers a severe beating. Luke, gripped with fear is incapable of helping his friend and instead witnesses the grisly attack from his hiding spot. In the aftermath of Rob’s death, the group…

    Blogtober Day: XXIII – OOTD

    Is it really an OOTD if I am actually only showcasing the top half of my outfit? In my defense, I’m only wearing black tights and boots – not very interesting and all that really matters is the bat print. I hauled this bat print dress with a few other pieces from Modcloth. It fits really well, it is on the thinner side for material but is also lined so I can at least wear it for the remainder of the fall. The dress isn’t actually black, it’s a really deep navy so my one navy cardigan that I never wear gets to see the light of day. What’s that…

    31 Nights of Horror – Misery (1990)

    Kathy Bates is the twisted star of this film adaptation of Stehphen King’s Misery, and delivers an absolutely bone-chilling performance and lends a creepy, new meaning to the accolade of number one fan. When famed romance novelist James Caan (Paul Sheldon) careens off the road outside of Silver Creek, Colorado (real place) during a heavy snow storm, his obsessive fan stumbles upon his comatose, broken body and takes him to her secluded home to safety. Turns out that Annie is not only Paul’s number one fan but also a (bat-shit crazy) nurse who can skillfully tend to his wounds and has a candy-land of pharmaceuticals. Paul was in Silver Creek writing a new…
