I’m Sure There Was A Thought

That I meant to complete here on the blog. I’m positive that I thought of something pithy and intelligent about which to post, but said thought seems to have flown my mind. So I offer this, instead:
Are you a fan of the haunted house?
See, I used to frequent haunted houses when I was younger, but since I’ve been with Kevin, it would appear that those days are over. I’m a big advocate of haunted houses (except the ones with Chainsaw Man at the end; I loathe the chainsaw guy. He’s scary, and one time he burned my arm because he got too close with his chainsaw of death. Bastard). Haunted housing has turned into the Autumn activity of choice, if the current selection of terror-inducing locations is any indication. You can’t listen to the radio for more than five minutes without hearing 4 commercials for Screams: The World’s Largest Halloween Theme Park (although for my money, I’ll take Dr. Blood’s Asylum of Terror. No scary, demented, burn-inflicting Chainsaw Maniac, and you don’t know what’s real and what’s made of wax. Spooky.). I pass two different haunted houses on my way to work, and it’s only a 15 minute drive. Screw Fright Fest at Six Flags, now we’ve got really scary options.
Of course, this could all be a clever (and thinly disguised) ploy to rob teenagers of their rather attractive discretionary income (read: allowances), but I think I might still enjoy an evening of horror and mayhem.
Maybe after a few beers, though.
Wait. On second thought, if I have too many beers and I get scared, I might wet my pants.
Sure, I’m aware that this entry was neither pithy nor insightful, but it was the best I could do today.

    It’s not that I don’t like haunted houses, it’s just that they seem like such…a waste, I guess. I mean, if I really want to be scared, I’ll think about Josh wearing a tie or something. THAT’S SCARY.

    Well, that’s my public story. Maybe (and I’m using the word “maybe” here in all it’s splendor), but just maybe I’m a big scaredy cat. Besides, haunted houses are the devil.

    Haunted house rock, i find they go smoother with a nice bottle of bookers single barrel bourbon. Kevin Buishey haunted houses are not the devil.

    This haunted house sounds scary. I’ve never been to it but it was described on the radio program This American Life this way (from their web site):
    “It’s Fun to Make Hell on Earth. Trinity Church in Texas puts on something called Hell House every Halloween. It’s like a haunted house, but each scene shows teenage church members acting out scenes of things the church considers sins. There’s a homosexual dying of AIDS; a girl in an abortion clinic (on a doctor’s table with fake blood splashed between her legs); a mom who leaves her family for someone she meets on the Internet. George Ratliff made a documentary about all this called Hell House. He plays some of his footage and talks about how effective it is, and how much of a thrill it is for the pious teenagers to act like sinners.”

    I don’t like haunted houses. Unless they have reals ghosts. That’s pretty cool.

  7. Angela Says:

    I love scaring myself in haunted houses but Mike cannot deal with people grabbing him in the dark so I haven’t been to one since we’ve been together. I sort of miss them but then I can scare myself by watching the Halloween specials on History, TLC or Travel so it isn’t as if I have to do without fear in my life.

    I want to go to a Haunted House! But, no Buffet concerts…
