Halloween Rant

Filexd under: Halloween Decor,Holidays,Misc.,News/Articles — Tags: , , , , , , , — jane @

The Halloween season is upon us, which makes me so happy. It took a while to get cooler here, but now it’s finally starting to feel like Fall. I’ve been searching all the stores online and in person so I can write about all the best Halloween stuff available. If you have a recipe, craft, DIY, costume or saw anything in a store that I should know about don’t hesitate, don’t be afraid just email me. I do bite, though, so be careful.

Now for the ground rules:

1.     If you are here because you think I worship the devil, then just go away. No need to comment. I believe I have already received emails from each and every one of you wanting to save my soul and I thank you for your concern, but I’m all set.

2.     If you wish to stop me from writing about Halloween or just scary things in general please refer to the first amendment. It’ll help with your stupidity.

3.     Have a f**king sense of humor

4.     Just remember, my idea of the best may be different from yours and that would make you wrong.

Snake Wreath

I happen to live in a neighborhood where everyone is very uptight, but think they’re cool. Those are the worst kind. My family stands out, needless to say, and I have no problem with that. At least we have a sense of humor and don’t call the police every time an African American chooses to walk down our street. Pretty much every house has some cutesy wreath on the door. You know the ones I’m talking about. There is the dried flower ones, plastic flower ones, the weird ones made out of different colored balls, the branch ones etc. I personally hate them and refuse to ever put one on my door. It’s so suburban and just drives me crazy. I have a black feather one that I put on my door once, but it was almost too pretty so I took it down. Today I ordered one that I might actually put on my door with pride. This Snake Wreath with the great Medusa vibe is meant as a Halloween decoration. I hope at $29 that it actually looks good, but we’ll see. I’ll probably remove the sound/vibrating box as I want this as a year round decoration. I can’t wait for everyone to see it. I just love to piss off my neighbors. Is that wrong?

Cherise the Niece

Filexd under: Apparel,Books,Story/Poem — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , — jane @

Every day we get books into the bookstore. Most of the time they are just your standard novel or a history book that I barely look at long enough to price. Once in a while though, a book will come through that door that catches my attention. Today was one of those days. As you may have guessed I am a huge fan of dark humor. I find most people take themselves way too seriously and need to lighten up a bit. This particular book was written by a man named Jim Benton. I know about this author mainly because Scary Daughter loves his Franny K. Stein books. They are written for kids, but they are wickedly funny. He’s also the creator behind It’s Happy Bunny. So, along comes this book today called Cherise the Niece and it’s by Jim Benton. The cover intrigued me right away and I promptly read it. It’s a short little book, so it doesn’t take long. It’s about a little girl named Cherise who goes to live with various aunts after her parents “mysteriously disappear”. I was laughing from the first page and it has the best last line of any book I’ve ever read. I highly recommend it if you have a murderously funny mind like I do. If you are easily offended, then what the hell are you doing reading my blog?

Grimmer Tales

Grimmer Tales Book coverI got this great book from a friend and just have to share. It’s called Grimmer Tales: A Wicked Collection of Happily Never After Stories. It’s brilliantly written and illustrated by Erik Bergstrom. Grimmer Tales is basically a collection of all of your favorite sappy fairy tales and nursery rhymes, but with the sick twist that they all desperately needed. This book will show you what really happened when Jack ate the magic beans and when a giant found the shoe that the old woman and her kids lived in. Prepare to laugh your ass off or, if you’re uptight, to be apalled.
