Congrats! :) Just email me your address,
and I'll send your bag o' sweet monstrosities!
Containing mostly wearable treats made by me,
samples of items I may sell in my Etsy shop soon.

While I'm on that subject, I'd like to introduce my shop's mascot/logo...

Anyway, thank you to everyone who entered!
If you missed out on this contest/giveaway, don't dismay!
I plan to do another one at the end of August, because...

Speaking of giveaways,
I won 3 packs of Monster In My Pocket series 1 trading cards from The Midnight Brood,
which I'm going to go open now!

Then I may have a Halloween movie marathon, since I now own them all on DVD!
[Except for Halloween III (Michael isn't in it, so it doesn't count) and the remakes.
Though I'd like to own the first one. Haven't seen the second. Is it worth buying?]
Wish I had some Hallowine to sip on while I watch!

Sadly ya'll can't join me. You can however play the Atari 2600 Halloween game here!

Hope you stay alive longer than me!

Wacky Snacks and Spooky Sweets

Now that I have birthday money, the buying binge has begun!

One of the things I've bought are these Wacky Packages Erasers...
Which I was going to review, but somebody already did it for me!

And this isn't an official Wacky Package...
But I had to share it.
Especially since yesterday was National Ice Cream Day!

Speaking of ice cream,
I wish I got one of these at Friendly's the other day...
Monster Mash Sundae

I think I'll attempt to recreate it!
While listening to, you guessed it,
The Monster Mash!
So can you...

Don't forget to enter the costume contest too!

The Number of the Day is...

Yesterday marked the 13th anniversary of the Creature Feature Web Program,
which is hosted by my other favorite count, Count Gore De Vol!
Played by Dick Dyszel, who has had many other alter-egos.
As you can see...

And today I'm celebrating my 13th birthday, again!
(13 + 13 = 26. Count Von Count taught me well. :)
Along with my little living dead lady, Sadie!

Want to help me celebrate my day?
