Haunted Hayride / House Aficionado

It's the most...wonderful...time...of...the year!

No, not Christmas...why does that always imply Christmas?

It's the most..spoOoOoOOoOkiful...time...of...the year!

I am so pumped. This is what it all comes down to...I'm weeping a little while I type this...

Listening to "Feed my Frankenstein" on repeat while planning Monster Bash games/menu, tormenting my mother...I mean finish my costume, watching spoOoOooOoOoky movies over and over again, pumpkin everything, inserting the words "autumn" and "fall" and "spoOoOoOooKy" into everything in my vocaBOOlary, mummy meatloaf, ghostatoes, I could go on and on...

But the best part of all? Going to a new and spOoOOoky location to try!

One year it was Blood Manor in NYC

Then it was Corrado's in Hackettstown (actually we've done this a couple of times, that's how good it is)

Always DePiero's  and whatever store is on Rt. 17....I heard a rumor that DePiero's is closing and while it's probably true, I'm in denial and refuse to believe it.  So don't even tell me if it's true or not because you heard it here first, Monster Bash Blog is dispelling the rumor right here and now.  Even if it does close I'll still show up every year in my costume and scare all of the developers.

Anyways, another year it was Eastern State Penitentiary in Philly.

And I can't forget Sterling Forest's Forest of Fear in NY

Of course there's Frightfest at Six Flags Great Adventure in NJ.

I love it all...

This year, to add to the tradition, we are finally making the trip to Headless Horseman in Sleepy Hollow, NY.

I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am.  It looks like this year they're doing some sort of old mining town story where the mine collapsed and the town went into chaos...sounds FRIGHTENING!!

August = Autumn

I realize some people will take offense to my title, and that's ok...not everyone is built for an extended Fall Funfest of Fright...but I think they're just in denial of the inevitable.

Don't you see it?  The weather is changing's different.  It used to be 95-100 the's what we North-Easterners like to refer to as "brisk".  Sure, Summer is still holding on...for now.

76 more days, can you believe it?  I sure can't.  I've been working very hard to make Monster Bash 2011 the biggest, baddest, most spoOoOoOoOoOkiest party yet!

Rumor has it we have ghouls coming up from Florida to celebrate, so this year is going to be bigger than ever!

What are you being this year?
