Pontefract Baghill?

Ok. I don't remember any station stops on the way to Hogwarts but if there were any it would certainly have been at Pontefract Baghill. Am I right?

 No? Oh well. I guess I'll have to take comfort in the fact it's a ghost station.

Orange Things #1

So, as I've mentioned before I'm currently living in a place where Halloween is not really celebrated. So, not much in the stores for me to post pics of...unless we think colour. So here for your viewing pleasure are some orange things I've seen.

Viewed at Home Centre

Jack O'Peach

What would you do if you found a peach with a...protuberance? 

This is what my husband did.

And it was delicious apparently

The return of Les Revenants

So, the American version, The Returned, has been cancelled. BUT the second season of this original French series premieres on Halloween night on Sundance tv. Seems appropriate seeing as a pivotal moment in a character's life happens on Halloween night.

What's that I smell?

Picked this up at a fantastic candy shop in Calgary, AB while there in July. Not sure what the 'pot pourri' smell it advertises on the label is gonna be. Maybe ancient dried flowers from Poe's house?

Sniff
I'll open it October 1st and let you know.

Falling leaves

This is what I've been sweeping up every day this week. We don't get a Fall like back home but twice a year we get this mini-fall thing. Certain trees shed a lot of leaves....and I mean a lot. It's worse in the Spring tho.

Say what now!?

Yes. It's true. The British Library has a Flickr site with over 1 million images/illustrations.

So there's the rest of my day gone!

Costume Idea?

So I came across the announcement for this Sea Witch and Fiddlers Festival in Delaware the other day. Looks like great fun! And it made me start thinking about a sea witch costume for Halloween.

Then I went looking for some ideas and came across this.

More amazing makeup
What do you think? The make up is by someone named Jessalyn? The site I found the image on belongs to KreativStudios.

The link below the photo will take you to the page featuring all sorts of crazily creative makeup!

It does take a while to load...

I've made my first ever wall hanging. And, of course, it's Halloween inspired...

Only because of Jamie Lee...

...will I watch this.

 Although. I must admit it does look like campy fun :)


And if you're still not convinced that sororities suck then maybe watch this. Cause I did. And it definitely has its own kind of campy fun going on!

Enroll now!

Started my online forensics class yesterday.

Didn't realize that there's a fictional component!

Instead of an actual case file we will be using a story created by writer Val McDermid.

Skulls at Daiso

The closest I've come to a Halloween sighting in local stores was last week at Daiso --- a kind of Japanese version of the Dollar Store.

And while it ain't delicate pearl jewelry they are at least skulls. Might get a black one...or silver?

Halloween Must See Movie

I gave up on most contemporary horror movies a long time ago. Out and out blood, guts, and gore have just never really done it for me. So not for me is the Hostel series or...what's that series where people are captured and made to saw or gnaw off bits of their own bodies?

I did very much enjoy Trick R Treat and am really looking forward to the sequel. And, of course, Army of Darkness 2 (love a splash of comedy in my horror). So was delighted today to stumble across this...


Always loved the idea of actually entering a movie.

Or exiting. Remember The Purple Rose of Cairo?
