Sunday Stealing



1. What is your favorite spooky song. The one I learned in Kindergarten. "Stirring and stirring and stirring my brew. Ooh, ooh! Ooh, ooh! Tip toe. Tip toe. BOO!" My memory of our teacher -- with her back to us, sitting at the piano bench, patiently playing and singing this over and over until we got it right -- is still so clear.

2. What do you want etched on your tombstone? I don't think I want one. Oh, I'm not forestalling death. I just think cremation or maybe donating my remains is a better way to go.

3. Who is your favorite horror movie villain. The evil Nick Simmons from The Ghost and Mr. Chicken.


4. Have you ever seen a ghost? Nope.

5. Do you prefer gore, thrillers or supernatural movies? I prefer to be thrilled, I think.

6. What is your favorite scary book? Little Leftover Witch. OK, it's not really scary. But it's one of the first "chapter books" I read on my own, and so it holds a special place in my heart.


7. Have you ever had a tarot card reading? Was it accurate? Yes, and I don't recall.

8. Are you superstitious?  At times.

9. Have you ever used a voodoo doll? No. Sounds very negative and ugly to me.

10. Have you ever participated in a seance? No. Unless a Ouiji Board counts. 

11. Have you ever heard voices when no one was around except you? No.

12. What is your favorite Halloween candy? Kit Kat.

13. What was your most memorable Halloween costume? One year I went as Harpo Marx: curly blonde wig, man's hat and overcoat, bicycle horn. It was fun.

14. Do you like going through haunted houses (not real ones)? Not especially.

15. If someone dared you to spend the night in a haunted house (a real one) would you do it? Hmmm .... I must hear more before I make my decision.



  1. Our kids were cremated, but we had their ashes buried, so they have a tombstone. Our grave site is near theirs and is also for cremains but will have a tombstone. At one time I thought I wanted my remains donated, but after we buried our first son, I realized how important it was to me to have someplace to "go" even if he wasn't there.

  2. I am going to be cremated. My parents bought two plots but were both cremated so there is room for 2 more in their plot and the other plot has room for 4 boxes. Sounds weird right? My parents have one memorial marker and there is room for 4.

  3. Not sure about creamtion or burial. Like I said, I plan to live forever anyway so it's not something that is relevant.




  4. What a great song, movie and book! Mine were more dark. Loved your answers! Have a great day!

  5. I've got to track down that movie.

  6. Harpo Marx! I love that!

  7. Ouija boards are fun. My sis face and I use to do that together.
    I'm not going to have a tombstone either, and for the same reason. I'm sending it all back to the earth, from which it came, and as soon as possible.
    I remember reading that book to my little sister! So cute! She's nine and a half years younger than I am.
