Are you afraid of the Dark, Candy Corn Chic, and the Burroughes Haunted Mansion ticket giveaway
I had a scary thought while walking home from work the other night:
If the producers of Are You Afraid of the Dark ever, FINALLY, choose to reboot that show I’d be too old to play a member of the midnight society by now.
Sure, I could probably play one of those whacky characters within a vignette — a demonic babysitter who, or a pop star who pukes out little monsters on stage — but the closest I can hope for is a two-show arc. Maybe. I’ll never be a Gary or a Kiki or that guy who played Jason in Mean Girls…
*shudder* Hearing the music still gives me the heeby jeebies, every time.
We’re old enough to get into licensed parties and nightclubs, but young enough to party all night.
Old enough to have complete autonomy and nobody to report back to, yet young enough to have few major responsibilities (*cough* kids.)
Young enough to look good in a risque costume, but old enough to know when a costume is too risque to be cute — and also to afford said costumes and rolls of double sided tape.
There are a lot of parties in my book this year – some private, some professional, some quirky shindigs and some MASSIVE SUPER RAGERS.
One of the 5 I’ll be attempting to hit on Saturday is the fourth annual Burroughes Haunted Mansion party presented by my homies at Oxford Beach.
That party was a blast last year. So many great costumes and hot people. I can only expect that this year will be even
Would you like to win tickets to this year’s Burroughes Haunted Mansion party? I’ve got a pair to give away right hyaw on my blog. All you’ve got to do is drop me a comment and / or TWEET ME about your favourite episode of Who’s Afraid of the Dark.
Not familiar with the show? a) DAFUQ WHY NOT? b) You can stream every single episode of the series here. Matt Stopera rounded up some of the show’s scariest characters ever for Buzzfeed like, 3 years ago if you’d like to peruse.
The winner will be drawn randomly on Thursday, and if you don’t win -> TICKETS.
You’re welcome, for the nightmares, by the way.
Perhaps this candy corn on the cob will give you some sweet dreams, too
Candy corn is hot right now. I wrote about this season’s “it flavour” (and the rising price of corn products) on Friday at work.
WHERE MY PULITZER IS AT?
I’ve got the first night of World Mastercard Fashion Week and the Canadian Online Publishing Awards tonight. CBCNews.ca is nominated for 10 awards this year! I imagine that if we win all 10, the very talented people responsible for said nominations might need some help carrying them back to the newsroom, and WHO BETTER AT CARRYING THINGS THAN THIS KID?!
Mommy, I’ll take a photo so that you can show it to everybody back home and brag about how I didn’t turn into a hobo who lives under a bridge with her 60 cats after all. Not yet, anyway.
