Cures for Constipation

Sunday was Crapper Day!
(Get the poop on it here.)

In celebration,
I present My Top 3 Favorite Crapper Killings:

1. Dino dines on dumping Lawyer in Jurassic Park

2. Bad Guy gets deadly swirly in Austin Powers

3. Mr. Hardin gets it in the end in Ghoulies II

Ghoulies like to read in the loo too.
As you can see:
Ghoulie Replica Puppet made by Ian Frost

They also have their own TP!

Speaking of reading and toilet paper, check this out:

Quoth the Raven "Read more!" Info on him here!

Did you know Poe also met Dickens while he was in Philly in 1842?
That's just one of the many fascinating facts I learned from this book:

Speaking of books, the rest of this month will be all about them.

New Year Skelebration

Let's break out the booze...
Skeleton Party by Ben Jensen aka Way Bad

And bring on the boney babe!
The striptease starts at the 2:23 mark

[The clip is from The Monster Club (1980)
If you haven't seen it, go watch it here!]

I'll have my own sexy skelly to party with soon!
This life-size poseable one to be exact:
What should my name be?

They were at CVS and on CVS.com near Halloween,
but sold out before I could get my hands on one. :(
I tried to forget about it, but couldn't. I needed one!
Yes, I was desperately seeking skeleton.
And I found one! :) On good old eBay.
[By the way, there's one left here!]

So, that's what I blew most of my horrorday dough on.
The rest was spent on this smaller sexy skelly and dreamy dragon dolly:
Skelita Calaveras and Jinafire Long

I regret nothing!

Happy New Year!
