Spooky kid's TV rewatch

Hi guys,

Maybe some of you remember the 90's TV show, Eerie Indiana? It was basically Twin Peaks for kids, had Joe Dante as their creative consultant, and starred Omri Katz of Hocus Pocus fame.

The Eerie, Indiana comm on LJ is in the middle of a rewatch - our next episode is Dead Letter, which we'll be watching at 4pm UK time next Saturday.

It would be awesome if you joined us.


From the icanhascheeseburger site we have this adorable black kitty!

I work in a craft store and the Autumn/Halloween merchandise is already creeping in. I love it!


Are we all sick of the heat yet? I know I am. We have a long way to go before summer ends, though. Courage everyone!

What was your first Halloween costume you can remember?

Vampire, appropriately enough. The makeup for a vampire was cheap. All you needed was lipstick!

What is your favorite aspect of Halloween (the costumes, decorations, parties...)

The cool of the season. I grew up in Georgia and it was always a relief and an event when the heat broke for the year!

If you could plan one special Halloween party for all of your friends, how would you do it?

Haunted castle in Europe!

What's your favorite trick? Or your favorite treat?

Chocolate and chocolate. The stuff is multi-purpose, y'know.

What is your fondest Halloween memory?

Trick or treating. Gimme free candy! I was terrified of Haunted Houses, though, and avoided them like the plague.

What reminds you the most of Halloween?

Red and orange and yellow leaves. The leaves on my Magnolia are turning already and I'm so happy I could cry.

Post a picture, send a recipe, a poem, anything you'd like.

Here's a creepy little poem I absolutely love. I wish I knew who wrote it!

Spin a coin, spin a coin,
All fall down:
Queen Nefertiti
Stalks through town.
Over the pavements
Her feet go clack,
Her legs are as tall
As a chimney stack.

Her fingers flicker
Likes snakes in the air,
The walls split open
At her green-eyed stare;

Her voice is thin
As a ghost of bees;
She will crumble your bones,
She will make you freeze.

Spin a coin, spin a coin,
All fall down.
Queen Nefertiti
Stalks through town.

My impressions of their just-released Halloween line. I'm not advertising for them, I swear!

So, they've done well! I missed their party by one day but I still managed to find some great stuff. I can really recommend this season's candle scents like Vanilla Satin, Kitchen Spice, Candy Corn, Farmer's Market (ESPECIALLY Farmer's Market, I love it) and Pumpkin Buttercream. But not so much the Witch's Brew or Over the River which smells like laundry detergent. I also disliked Autumn Leaves and Nature's Paintbrush but that's just my hatred of sandalwood talking. The Scarecrows and Harvest Babies are very cute if you like cute and their crackle-glass accessories are beautiful. I want them all!

The Boney Bunch actually creeps me out, and not in a good way, but I dearly loved the Skeleton Crew and their Creepy Crawlies selections. I think I'd kill for that spider chandelier but I settled for a spiderweb tea light ($5, not too bad) and I'm burning the Candy Corn in it now. Bliss!

It's 90° and sunny outside but the leaves here in NC are juuuuust starting to turn and I'm thrilled. The heat will break soon and Autumn will arrive, at last. I'll be ready!
