The Halloween Tag (Part 2)

Continuing from yesterday's post, here are the last 6 questions of The Halloween Tag --

8. Favourite Halloween costume?
I tend to vacillate on matters such as these.


9. Favourite Halloween store?
There are of course those pop-up Halloween stores that appear every autumn and only operate for a couple of months until Halloween is over. But I prefer going to Value Village for all my Halloween needs. They have a good selection of both used and reasonably-priced new costumes and items. That's where I bought our lovely rubber rats many years ago, Cardinal Ratzinger and Archbishop Fang. Here they are in rather blurry action on the front step in 2010 --


10. Jack-o-lanterns, yes or no?
OF COURSE, YES! Here's a selection of JoLs that My Rare One and I have carved over the years --


11. Bats or black cats?
No contest.


12. Is Halloween your favourite holiday?
It's right up there!


13. Pumpkin spice latte or hot chocolate?
I'm definitely a hot chocolate kinda gal.


Now I'm supposed to tag other people to do this quiz as well. But I'm not going to do that because . . .


LOKI COMMANDS ALL OF YOU TO DO IT!

Hahahahaha, trick or treat! How could I not have more Tom Hiddleston in Part 2 of this post, I ask you? Loki is The Trickster, after all.

Value Village is great for Halloween stuff! I enjoy visiting this time of year just to see what they've got. Very cool.

I read the post but it took me an hour. I am transfixed by that Gif of the horse-to-ape mask thing. It's mesmerizing. Good choice on the hot chocolate front. Also, I wanna pet that fluffy cat. Wanna pet it. Wanna scratch behind its ears.

Missy George said...

Leeanna said...

If Loki commands then we must do. We I don't know about the others, but I would follow him anywhere. So I will be doing this tomorrow morning.

Debi said...

Loki doesn't have to ask twice ( although he could ask all day long). You do coaks a smile from me, heart post! x

The Happy Whisk said...

The starter kits was funny. Love that you shared your jack's with us. Pretty cool.

Happy Oogie Boogie Day.

Miss Val's Creations said...

I love that you named your rubber cats! You guys are so talented with the pumpkin carving.

A Beer For The Shower said...

Good choice on hot chocolate. I'm already sick of the pumpkin spice craze. Also, fun fact: pumpkin spice beer is absolutely terrible.

Oh, and I'm jealous. You and Rare One are really good at carving pumpkins. Me, not so much. I always feel like this.

Guillaume said...

I thought the black cats would be an obvious choice too.

Rosemary said...

I used to enjoy carving pumpkins, but my DiL is so brilliant at that job that I have abandoned doing them anymore.

Insomniac's Attic said...

Do you offer jack-o-lantern carving lessons?

Linda - Darkroom Dolls said...

Your pumpkins are carved beautifully!!! The starter witchcraft kit is adorable :-). I don't mind Tom Hiddleston in this second part AT ALL hahaha!

Adam said...

I've never had pumpkin spice anything

mistress maddie said...

EEEEKKKKKKKKKK! RATS!!!!! I love so much you get behind Halloween so much. And those pumpkins are fabulous girls!!!!!

Joy Christi said...

Cute idea! I love the pumpkins.
We love to visit the pop up Halloween stores, but usually spend our money at Goodwill or resale shops because I'm super cheap.
I usually make my own costumes, one year I was Amy from The Big Bang Theory, which just involved pinning my bangs down and wearing my old glasses sadly. This year I'm going as Tara from Sons of Anarchy, which only involves scrubs/doctor pants, a skull Tshirt and a toy stethoscope. (Her character was a doctor that helped a motorcycle gang if you didn't watch SOA)
Happy Scary Candy Day!

Funnest Halloween post I've seen! And I knew I liked you - hot chocolate decorated with a spider web does it for me.
Loki can do tricks for me anytime. Wink.

Jono said...

Nice pumpkins!

Fundy Blue said...

What fun, Debra! Jack-o-lanterns? Definitely yes, although as a kid I knew them as pumpkin grinners. Your rats are positively freaky creepy! I can tell that you and your RO are going to have a fun week! Enjoy!

Linda @ Life and Linda said...

Cute pumpkins. Yes, Halloween can be quite fun. Love visiting the pop up Halloween stores.

bill lisleman said...

Oh she has lovely rats and can carve a vegetable like I've never seen.

The Spooky Whisk said...

For you, a full turtle turd :-)

Riot Kitty said...

Oooh, I want a latte now! And Tom Hiddleston, of course.

Ramzu Zahini said...

I love black cats. And recently acquired one. will post about her later.

Rommy said...

Mmm, a hot chocolate is lovely in the fall. Pumpkin spice is nice, but chocolate wins.

Your Jack-o-lanterns are amazing!!!
