QUESTIONS

Name something you wouldn’t want to run into in a dark forest or in an abandoned building.    Anything other than a “real” person or a “real” animal.  Maybe not even that …

Share the creepiest thing that’s ever happened while you were alone.   I don’t remember anything while alone, but once when my sister, cousin, and I were doing a “séance” I saw a face in fire (my eyes were shut) …. that séance was over!!

What would you like your last words to be?  I would hope to tell my children that I love them.

Do you believe in any ‘mythical’ monsters like chupacabras or shadow people?  Oh yes …. definitely shadow people, ghosts, demons …. there are things out there we all aren’t in touch with, although some are.  Several members of my family are sensitive to spirits — one of my nieces has a true gift.

How long do you think you would last in a horror movie?  I’m also old and fat, so if running is involved …. 1/100th of a second.

Are you afraid of or find clowns creepy?  I grew up in the Northwestern Chicago suburbs — if clowns weren’t creepy to me before that, hearing the stories of John Wayne Gacy were enough to warn me off them.  I also read “It” when it came out —- scared the bejezzus outta me.

In the zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice?  Well, if I can shoot them, I’d do that.

Have you ever had your tarot cards read?  Yes

Do you think putting special emphasis on certain holidays – like Halloween is ‘spooky’ for example — is a good idea or just more mindless entertainment for the masses?   Halloween is the non-pagan version of Samhain — a Gaelic celebration of the end of the harvest and the beginning of the “dark half” of the year.  A version of Samhain is also celebrated by Wiccans (“witches”).  It is a dark holiday, basically —

from Wikipedia:  “Wiccans believe that at Samhain the veil between this world and the afterlife is at its thinnest point of the whole year, making it easier to communicate with those who have left this world” (emphasis added) — in essence, ghosts are more likely to be around.
