You ready for October?

You ready for October?

I love this weather!!

Thank God it’s Friday. Gracias a Dios es viernes!

God, for once this year it’s starting to feel like fall! Finally cooled down!

If you couldn’t guess, I’m a jacket person- I love leather (“Oh, I wear lace, and I wear black leather…” line from Alice Cooper’s Killer album. If you haven’t experienced it, I highly suggest it if you are a fan of 70’s music).

Anywho….I’m psyched for Halloween; I love horror flicks. It gives me more of an excuse to watch them with my family. They like horror films too, but they are more in the mood at this time of year.

I have to do this science project called the Cartesian Diver.

Our design is slightly different, but this is essentially what we’re doing.

We have to decorate it creatively when we’re done with the science-y part. Of course I’m going to do a darker theme. I thought I’d get as plastic skeleton and put him in the bottom or something like that, and dye the water red or green. Probly green.

We’re reading a Stephen King story in English now. Dolan’s Cadillac. I do believe I have read it before, but’s its been a year or two. God, I’ve had a lucky week in English class, read two of my very favorite authors- Stephen King and Edgar Allan Poe.

Have you ever done this on Halloween?

We used to all the time, but we didn’t put the light in the background. What you do it you get an ugly or creepy looking mask, stuff it in a large old pickle jar, fill the jar with water, and you can dye the water red/green/any creepy color you can find, really.

I personally think that ours looked better than the picture above *cough* *cough*

But yeah, there’s some DIY Halloween shit for you there.

Also:

My grandma used to take some old clothes and stuff them with hay, then attach them together with safety pins. She would use a stuffed gunny sac for the head, and a wrinkly old person mask for the actual face. Lastly, she’d top it off with a straw hat, and maybe make a wife to go with him (she’d use a gypsy mask, I remember). She’d set them out on the porch in lazy poses together, and they’d sit there all October. Kids would walk by and see them and find them to be interesting decorations; they’d get used to them and find them rather fun- and then- here comes the better part:

On Halloween, take out all of the hay of one (or both) of the figurines, and replace them with real people! Then you wait until kids walk up to your porch, and then leap up and scare the piss out of them!

know this works, because I was a victim!

We all know scarecrows are fucking creepy, because that’s what they were invented for- to scare.

Scared little children more than it did crows though, I think.

Maybe when it gets to be October, I’ll make a whole post on DIY Halloween stuff- that’d be fun.

Ever been to Kansas or Nebraska?

Covered in tall fields and cemeteries. Rather creepy. I do believe Children of the Corn took place in Nebraska. Nebraska is boring. Looks just like Kansas, but filled with corn. No offense to proud Nebraskans…………………..

I’m not even proud of Kansas, how could you be proud of Nebraska???

Ok, I’ll shut up, I’m sure you have a billion reasons……corn……

Karate Mantis

Hm….yep, no plans or anything; just another weekend.

I was walking around with a praying mantis in my P.E. class (we were outside, just walking around). She was so cute (it was a female). She was perched on my hand, washing her forelegs absentmindedly. But she tried to jump on my shoulder and missed, then landed in the grass. Couldn’t find her after that. She was that muddled grey color that fit in too well with the rest of the place.

It was funny though. I saw her doing that silly thing they do when they’re trying to size something up, staring straight at me and swaying side-to-side. I was thinking, “Oh great, you better not jump on my face”. Haha, that seems to be a favorite location for mantises after all.

I love praying mantises. They are my favorite insect. They’re like little cat-raptor-cockroaches (they are related to roaches). They would be the best insect to train martial arts to.

KARATE MANTIS, HAKYAAAAH

There are mantises that will pose as ants, then eat them. How diabolical.

Yep. I’m a bug nerd.

Can’t believe I found that picture.

Well, actually I can….

Woah I can’t stop yawning.

My jaw feels a little better today.

We got cranberry juice today. Yaaaay. I’m addicted to that shit. It’s my drug.

I don’t like the cranberry juice, but the cranberry juice likes me.

Ha. Sorry guys, I’m addicted to references….and pictures.

I think this blog is going along nicely. I’m not usually good at keeping up with things.

It’s pretty entertaining.

But I’m scraping for material here, haha, most of my stories are about as big as the mantis story.

I lost my ipod a few weeks ago. It’s still upsetting. Music is my life; my ipod was my life on a rectangle. Where could it have possible gone? I really liked it because of the convenience. I can’t carry my record player around, or my computer, or my cd player (I could, but I would honestly be a bit embarrassed toting around that hunk of plastic).

Yeah. It sucks. I got that ipod for cheap, and “cheap” and “ipod” don’t usually go together in the same sentence.

Or “Doc Martens”.

But I totally got my Docs for seven bucks at a grunge, heheh.

Everyone, don’t underestimate grunges (grunges are thrift shops, for people who are unfamiliar with the term), you can get a lot of great shit there. My favorite jeans, boots, bags, and tights came from grunges.

I don’t know about you, but I love music to death.

If music was wiped off of the face of the Earth, I would be dead.

(And I love to watch any kind of horror movie… Except for porn that’s marketed as “horror”. Psh, more like “whorerer”)

I love Creepshow especially. But I guess that’s kind of a horror-comedy. I actually had a dream that Fluffy, the creature from the crate, was real. It actually wasn’t a scary dream, because I “didn’t exist” in the dream, I was like an invisible bystander. So it was like watching a super 3D horror film. It was awesome.

Heh….
