Is this literally all you talk about? What you say on online forums or who calls you a troll? The fact that this is happening to you on other forums outside of this one also proves that no matter where you go, others have the same opinion on your posts.

As I said to you several times, just report him, Cube. It's bordering as an obsession on your part to respond to him too.

I'm sorry you didn't become the Homecoming King, but I'm glad that you had fun on the ride.

Finally got me one of those 5' posable Halloween skeletons.

Last year I'd wanted one to sit on top of the big, gnarly old tree trunk stump of our now deceased weeping cherry tree. (Maybe crouching in some way and holding a lantern over the side, surrounded by the fake spider web stuff. If it would work.) But they're expensive, didn't see any good sales, and my hopes of finding any on sale after Halloween were fruitless.

But found a good one today 60% off, saving $60! (At Joann Fabrics store.)

Controlled myself and didn't go buying a whole bunch of other stuff (Halloween is a serious weakness lol), but I did also bring home a nice large "Organic Venomous Spiders" jar for pretty cheap to go along with my collection of decorative Halloween apothecary bottles and whatnot.

Ooh we must have similar taste in decorating!

Every year I buy a few items to add to my outdoor display for Halloween. This year it was one of those hanging skeletons in the tattered shroud/robes- this one with a clown face. I also bought a holographic "moving" picture frame of a creepy undead clown (and it has a button to say several scary messages too) and a "zombie cat" warning sign. A couple more rats and crows, a little yard stake sign, and a second light-up jack-o-lantern for the kitchen window came home with me too. Our patio/yard space is small but I make the most of it! I have also decided that my next addition is going to be a large skeleton web cocoon to hang up since I do a couple of really big spider webs (with bug spiders in them) every year on our bush and door.

Nice! I used to do our front yard up real well, but that ended up stopping quite a few years ago sadly. (Mostly because Halloween died in our neighborhood. I still enjoyed it for us, but a family member or two wouldn't stop being so pessimistic about it and acting like it was pointless.) Hope to slowly get back into it though, at least to some extent.

Years ago, well before phones took over, when we did have visitors I'd have a few people taking photos of their kids in my cemetery (made of big painted cardboard tombstones) under our old pine. Felt pretty honored that it would be part of their family photos. (Those kids are probably in their young 20s now.)


As long as they were taken, for some reason, to the darn storage unit my sister and brother in law have (along with too much of my Halloween stuff I need to get back from it) and not thrown out without permission, I've even got "authentic" spooky old fence pieces I used for the cemetery. Aka pieces that used to enclose an area of the backyard once containing a fish pond, but later removed and I kept them because the more they sit and age and weather all the better for decorating!

Lol! I have pics from past displays on my Deviant Art page. I've started putting up some of my stuff for this year but until the lawn care guys do their job I won't be able to finish my cemetary. I still need to finish trimming the bushes a bit before I put up the webs but most of the patio is done. I just put up my patio table display today. Little "steaming" cauldron that uses water and a color-change light to make spooky vapor. There's a skull, a life-size crow, and a hairy rat on the table, with a black velvet cloth draped over the table.

Sounds awesome, Duckie!


The shorts, eh, (edit: also those are really right up there a bit, aren't they - ouch lol don't sit down) but agree that top is pretty cool! If there was a plus size, I esp know a sibling that would love that.


Was poking around eBay for cheap, fun stocking stuffer ideas. Look at these cat paw socks!

Spoiler:




10/6 - Since it warmed back up to 80 today (so I could use the hose outside to clean up the bucket, etc), finally got to making the fish-shaped stepping stone for where my fish was buried.

I needed a wooden paint stir stick, but those seem weirdly had to find. (Maybe at a hardware store only? But not worth going all the over there just for that... Then my luck prob still fail to find it.) The stepping stone kit I have came with one years ago, but it had broken. However... turned out that a cheap wooden spatula makes a better replacement.



Bonus happy maker...

Grabbed a cool Halloween prop weapon at Walmart today that I'd seen the other day and was kind of wishing I'd gotten since it was only $5.98.

Remember those toys, esp play kitchen stuff and toy baby bottles, that had the liquid in them that when turned upside down it would disappear? How about a katana (or maybe more accurately one of its shorter siblings) with a liquid filled blade with the same effect? Drains into the handle. Kinda sick, and yet kinda awesome.



Not sure I've ever seen an inexpensive plastic toy sword get such a nice stock photo. lol (Taken from Walmart's site.)

I had a little bit of a new idea for my Obligado fanfiction, that I think would make things a little bit easier. But then it opens up a lot more possibilities.

Instead, I'd do a story about when he was young and was pretty much "just" an archeologist - and a brand new one at that. Having not yet gone on his wildest adventures yet. With no reputation to precede him.

And this would be the adventure that jumpstarts the rest.

I am greeted every day when I come home by two FURRY faces- usually purring. One of them woke us up this morning by bounding onto the bed and nose-bumping our faces lol!

Getting further in writing my fics and being able to clean and dust off my desk made me happy. It needed it....

My school library has a "no checkout necessary" section, so people can just exchange books for another.

At this point, all the books are old. And 90% harlequin romance novels. But that's not the part that amused me.

The part that amused me was a manual for setting up and operating a color television from 1964 or so.

I spent a great afternoon today hanging out with some friends, drinking beer, eating pizza, and watching the new Star Trek.

And then as if that wasn't enough I won $5 on a scratch ticket and am having the best day of Bus-fu.
