It’s been a great day! My Saints beat Brady and the Bucs, and I just watched my middle child leave with my grandbaby to go trick or treating. It’s her first Halloween, and she loves it. She was actually trying to kiss the Jason mask that my daughter wore lol…I will write more soon with the challenges, but I hope you all have had an amazing Samhain.
Friday fun starts with Fibbing Friday, and this week’s fibbing is of a spooky theme since Halloween is around the corner. I love Halloween, except I call it Samhain. The veil lowers, and it brings about good things for the harvests to come. Let’s get to fibbing *giggles*
- Why does garlic repel vampires?
Garlic has the same effect as water on gremlins. The smell of it makes them bubble and pop out baby bats from their backs.
- What do you need to kill a werewolf?
A lady werewolf…
- What is the purpose of a Jack-o-lantern?
A Jack-o-lantern is supposed to be a portal to bring Jack Skellington to your Halloween parties.
- What exactly is a ghoul?
A ghoul is like a cute little puppy and is full of sunshine. It farts rainbows.
- Why can’t vampires enter a home unless invited?
Because not even vampires can dodge a breaking and entering charge…immortal or not.
- Why can’t vampires cross running water?
It would mess up their really good hair, and their shoes are really expensive.
- What does a chupacabra eat?
Little Debbie snack cakes…
- What is the name of the three-headed dog that guards the gates of the underworld?
Niklaus Mikaelson…he’s in super hybrid form.
- Who are the Stygian Witches?
Joan Ferguson, Chucky’s Bride, and Baby Shark
- What alcoholic beverage is thought to be the true origin of witches’ brew?
Tequila…it magically makes your clothes fall off *giggles*
Name something you wouldn’t want to run into in a dark forest or in an abandoned building (yeah it’s a retread. But there are new participants to SYW too who probably never answered it).
Zombies, clowns, or porcelain dolls that come alive…all three of them scare the bajeebies out of me. Needless to say, I am not a fan of The Walking Dead, It, or Annabelle.
Do you believe in multiple dimensions or worlds?
Yes. There are many planes of reality, and we are selfish to think that we are the only inhabitants of many different galaxies.
Would you ever go to a graveyard at night?
Hell to the nah!
What is the most frightening book you’ve ever read?
I am not much of a scary book reader. I am more of a fantasy vampire reader, and they are not scary to me.
BONUS QUESTION (just for silliness’ sake!)
If you could have a spooky Halloween pet (black cat, owl, bat, rat, wolf), which would you pick out of the five choices?
Definitely the wolf…they are majestic, as well as the fact they can rip the throat out of anyone who would hurt me. A dire wolf would be cool to have.
GRATITUDE SECTION (As always, optional)
What are you grateful for?
I am grateful to know what has always been wrong with me and to my family for putting up with me. I am also thankful for the rain, even though I hate smoking outside in the rain. With wind comes rain in California, and yesterday there was enough wind to power a jet engine or two or 300. I am thankful to breathe also.

Each week, PCGuyIV hosts Truthful Tuesday. Click here to join in the fun! Here is the question and my answer from the prompt.
Considering how last year went and the current state of things, do you have any plans for Halloween this year? Will you be going to any costume parties, handing out trick-or-treat candy, or just staying at home with the porch light off so no one will bother you? Please let us know!
The Truthful Answer
Last year we made the best of the situation, and we got decked out in costumes while playing some music and passing out candy in the driveway. This year things will be a little different since I have my grandbaby. This is her first Halloween, so we will be dressing up and hitting the streets to trick-or-treat. My sister will probably stay back and hand out the candy while my daughter, grandbaby, and me go to the porch lights.
I am curious how many will actually be on, but I live in a community that has been pretty rebellious when it comes to Covid restrictions. I think there will be quite a few. I don’t know what I will dress up for this year, but I am thinking of being a pirate or Jack from Nightmare Before Christmas. Last year I was Sally.
It’s that time again, where I get to come up with my crazy answers and stretch the truth to PCGuyIV’s and Pensitivity101’s Fibbing Friday Challenge. TGIF!
- Exactly what did Columbus do in 1492?
He invented a time machine that would take people 1000 years in the future to flying boats and a water world.
- Why does Canada celebrate Thanksgiving in October rather than November as the US does?
The turkeys are tastier in October rather than November.
- Why do we carve pumpkins into Jack-o-lanterns for Halloween?
So that all the pumpkin spice addicts cannot harvest them to make pancakes, coffee, and everything else that they turn into pumpkin spice-scented anythings.
- If “octo-” means eight, then why is October the tenth month?
October was named after a magical, giant octopus rather than the number month it represents.
- Why do kids dress up in costumes and go trick-or-treating on Halloween?
In the words and voice of Vincent Price in Thriller, “To terrorize yalls neighborhoods”.
- What is the movie, Hocus Pocus about?
It’s the story of my life as E.M. The Good Witch.
- In the Movie, Halloween, why was Michael Myers sent to an insane asylum when he was only six years old?
He told everyone where the Fountain of Youth was located because he was actually an immortal creature who could never die.
- Continuing from the previous question, what did Myers do when he escaped approximately fifteen years later?
He went on a search for Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory because they don’t have chocolate in insane asylums. He also wanted to see an Oompah Loompah.
- What was the movie, Lost Boys about?
It was the sequel to Stand By Me. The boys got lost on the tracks again. No dead bodies were found this time though, just a carpetbagger who filled them in on the meaning of life.
- According to legend, why don’t vampires have a reflection?
If a vampire sees themselves, they cannot stop looking because they are so beautiful and majestic. If they look too long in the mirror, the vampires turn into puppies, so it’s better if they don’t see themselves at all.
