Guillaume of Vraie Fiction has zapped me with The Halloween Tag which consists (appropriately enough) of 13 questions. I'll answer 7 today and the remaining 6 tomorrow. Here goes:
1. Favourite Halloween song?
I've always loved The Monster Mash! And if I may, I dedicate this video to Dr. Theda and Stacey over at Dr. Theda's Crypt because no one loves the old classic monsters more!
2. Witch or Vampire?
Well of course witches are nearest and dearest to my heart, as you know. But I do also have a soft spot for the vampire Adam from Only Lovers Left Alive simply because I adore Tom Hiddleston. And that gives me an excuse to post this gif of Adam savouring a frozen blood popsicle --
Oooooo nice homoerotic lip action, Tom, even if not everyone approves.
3. Favourite thing about Halloween?
I love handing out candy at the door to little trick-or-treaters and seeing all their cute costumes.
4. Halloween party or scary movie marathon?
Oh, a Halloween party for sure! True confession time -- I don't actually like scary movies at all. But even so, I'm going to go see the new gothic romance horror film Crimson Peak. Because, you know, Tom Hiddleston is in it.
5. Skeletons or zombies?
Zombies do have a certain je ne sais quoi kind of charm, I admit. But skeletons are more jaunty and fun-loving, even on the job.
6. Favourite Halloween candy?
When I was a kid, people still handed out homemade Halloween treats at the door and it was perfectly safe to take them. The Golden Age of Halloween Innocence, eh? Anyway, my favourite score was to get a homemade caramel popcorn ball. They were the BEST!
7. Favourite Halloween movie?
It's not really a Halloween movie per se but it is about vampires -- the aforementioned Only Lovers Left Alive. Because -- well, you know by now.
All the Tom Hiddlestud references in this post are dedicated to Dezzy at Hollywood Spy because he loves Our Tom as much as I do.
Tomorrow -- The Halloween Tag (Part 2). And I promise -- no more Tom Hiddleston!
