Lonely on a Friday Night and Contest Winner!






It's that time again. From now until the last person passes out, you can hang out here and comment back and forth about anything and everything, flirt, joke around, talk about the "Ghost Adventures" episode and philosophize. Whatever you are in the mood for.

    Hope all is going well in your neck of the woods. I'm sure you're having autumn. It's still in the freaking 80s here. Bummer!

  4. (in his best Southern drawl) Well, Hot Diggity Damn! (normal voice) Thanks, Autumn!

    ReplyDelete
  5. Thank Dale--he drew your name, buddy!

    ReplyDelete
  6. OK, tell Dale I said thanks to him too!

    Howz it going Autumn. Anything interesting or new?

    ReplyDelete
  7. Hmm.... Interesting or new? Got my mind set on doing an ebook. When I decide to do something, I go full force. We'll see how it goes. I have a lot of stuff I could put together for one, whether it's my horror short stories, my practical ghosting advice, psychic info or what... not sure yet. Tell me it's all nice and chilly where you are and I'll believe in Santa again. Jeez, I miss the cold and the smell of woodsmoke in the air and chilly noses and toes, wind and rain...

  8. Actually, it's so cold that earlier it almost SNOWED! Gadzooks, I'm not ready for snow! Anyway, I'm still waiting for my mom to e-mail me the pictures of Halloween 2010. Didn't get any pictures of my costume - a good thing, because I though it sucked. Note to self: never prepare costumes last minute.

    Yeah, last minute--not too cool. Done that, not fun. One time, I did something with a sheet and no one could guess what I was. Hell, even I didn't know what I was. Send me a snowflake. I haven't seen it snow in about 15 years!

  10. It's nice to see fathers and sons doing things together :-)

    ReplyDelete
  11. Yeah, everything but the mask & broom were hasty looking. But over all a great Halloween.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Truly, that's all that matters, buddy. It's all about the atmosphere and mood on Halloween. Next year. I'm determined to take a flashlight into the woods and turn off the light and sit in the dark and listen to the woods and get totally creeped out while being chilly. What is chilly? Remind me how that feels...

    ReplyDelete
  13. Hey Barry;
    How's your evening going?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Well, chilly is the feeling I get when something really creepy happens. Like this Halloween: a guy in red plastic skull mask, fedora, & leather trench coat was stalking the haunt, staring at us. It was a little Michael Myers-ish. Finally, he approached my stepdad. He simply grasped my stepdad's shoulder, and said cheerfully "Ben, I want your head." and took off running. We never saw him again, don't know who he was, or how he knew my stepdad's name was Ben! I smell stalker...

    That is soooo wicked! That sounds like something I would do. My son was working on a film he has to do for his video art class in college and he made a big batch of fake blood to film and he tried it out but wasn't sure how realistic it is, so he went in the other room where his fiancee was and said, "I cut my hand real bad!" Of course, when she found out it was a joke, she had a nice name to call him. The apple did not fall far from the tree. I used to do fake wounds and bones protruding and bleeding cuts and things around Halloween time every year just to freak people out. Man, I need to do that again--it's been a while. I miss the expressions.

  16. Congrats Halloween Nut!

    I wanna chat! (in my best whiny-butt voice) Alas, I can't yet! I have ICD-9-CM codes to do for an assignment. UGH! Hopefully it won't take too long! A lot more involved than I realized, but "I got this!"

  17. Tara;
    Super student--you can do anything! Just put on your superhero cape and go forth. Talk to you later, sweetie.

  18. One of my "tricks" I worked up for the carnival haunt, that never happened, was to perform an old magic trick that replicates a sideshow stunt - The Human Pin-cushion. I would have made it look like I was sticking sharpened skewers thru my arm to gross out people. :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oh, that's awesome! I cringe whenever I see people doing that self-mutilating skewering and folks who hang from their skin and swallow swords. ICK! Yeah, you gotta save that one for next year. Maybe you could do the carnival theme then.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Wow Tara thats hard stuff there are a lot of codes

    ReplyDelete
  21. I don't know, I don't have a lot of stuff that could be used for a carnival theme. Besides, I've got some neat plans already!

    Well, I'd best get going, my dad just got home with my bro so I should go say hi. I'll email you my address. Thanks again, Autumn an Dale!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I have my Kaluha and eggnog and ready to watch GA and party!!

    Howdy ya'll...

    ReplyDelete
  23. Yum, I want what you're having. Of course, it won't be on until late on cable here. Bummer! Guess I'll have to bug everyone for clues as to what they think of it. I saw it ahead of time, but with the sound off because I was doing other things, but I know I'm going to have fun with it.

    ReplyDelete
  24. After I watch the show, I may need to go to bed, lol. I am such a lightweight.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Yeah, I wait and do it for the show and it's on so late and I work tomorrow, so I just don't overdo. If it looks like a particularly "bro" and "dude" night, I do small sips. The show is always so fun with a bit of a buzz on.

  26. Zak plans to use a woman as a triger object lol

    ReplyDelete
  27. Hmm... I wonder if it would trigger anything in Zak??

    ReplyDelete
  28. Zak banged his head and he doesn't want the woman to know lol

    ReplyDelete
  29. hee hee playing in the operations room like its a mission

    ReplyDelete
  30. I'm surprised they aren't in cracker jack uniforms.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Yeah, that over the top greeting from the sailors was divine. Loved that! Reminded me of Bush's landing on the carrier and saying we'd won the war and the dudes in the teletubbie outfits came over... what the hell was that about??

    ReplyDelete
  32. well at least he isn't wearing his yankee kepi antmore

    ReplyDelete
  33. I predict some head knocking on the overhead beams. Whatcha think? How many times will they bump into something? Oh, damn! They edit their own stuff. They'll take those out. Bummer!

    ReplyDelete
  34. uh oh, Zak better watch where is hands are going around that lady lol

    ReplyDelete
  35. Poor gal. You think she got hazard pay?

    ReplyDelete
  36. sorry girlie we are trying a new ghost hunting technique

    ReplyDelete
  37. Nice Barry, I will be watching in 15 minutes after it is finished recording. I am also recording "The Walking Dead" and will watch that tomorrow.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Sis;
    You're looking for an excuse to hit that eggnog, huh?

    ReplyDelete
  39. no but he might have a bed bug issue lol

    ReplyDelete
  40. EW! I'm guess you don't mean Zak crawling into a bunk and pretending to be a sailor. You mean-literally, bed bugs? ICK

    ReplyDelete
  41. he and Nick craweled into the old bunks and both said that they felt heat and pricking feelings

    ReplyDelete
  42. You may be right they chased away the girl fast enough

    ReplyDelete
  43. I am off to watch the show. If I don't return, I was too drunk from all the dudes, bros and funny faces. Later...

    ReplyDelete
  44. Hi everyone... will be checking in and out, as I cook dinner and write some blog posts. :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. Whatcha writing about, Steve? Whatcha having for supper?

    ReplyDelete
  46. The posts I must finish tonight are a review of "The Ninja Hunt" (as it's tomorrow's "Nine Days of the Ninja" entry) and my weekly "Saturday Scream Queen" post. Anna Paquin this week, because no one else is coming to mind.

    Hopefully, I'll get started on the reviews of "Machine Girl" and "Golden Ninja Invasion," too. Real deadlines have brought perilously close to not fulfilling my "blog promises."

    As for dinner... Creamy Pasta Tuna Helper with added peas, carrots, and shredded sharp cheddar cheese. :)

  47. I'll take a guess you're in a cooler clime. That sounds like a fine autumn meal if you're anywhere north of AZ. I love what you're writing. You are so complex. I get the feeling you're into a little of everything, totally eclectic. Complex people intrigue me. I'm writing too. Just finishing up a chapter in the book that's at the publishing company. Well, the proposal is. The book is still in writing. Fingers crossed. Later, I will be finishing my dark erotica anthology told from a male's perspective and be hopefully putting that into an ebook. Luckily, my posts are written up until next Friday. I need some time to do other writing.

  48. Almost everything from October 20 through day before yesterday were going up automatically across all my blogs. Had a rush-job on a to-be-announced fantasy roleplaying game project. It was nice to be doing that sort of writing again. Haven't done it in years.

    And, in my case, eclectic means no taste and no common sense. :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. Fantasy role-playing. You got my attention. Eclectic in your case, I believe is a child chasing every fancy. I like that. Don't ever grow up. Always have a hand in bunch of varied projects and have interests that totally don't jive. You never grow up when no one can peg you, my friend. Yes, I do enjoy the posting queue myself. It makes it possible to spend some time on researching and writing other things. October was an insane month. I'm hoping this month to get into a pattern of delivering some regular series pieces on the blog. It's time to play less with my ventriloquist doll and clown doll and delve into the paranormal world some more.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Yeah... from 1996 through 2002, writing, developing and editing roleplaying game stuff was my full time job. I still hope to move back in that direction again some day.

    I'm also in the proposal stage of a new book. This one will have something to do with comic books. Quality ones, as opposed to my recent book, which dealt mostly with bad/failed movies.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Damn! My son and you would have about everything in common. He's graduating from college with an art degree but emphasis on video. He's super into RPG and has designed some online games on those sites where people design their own. He's writing a fantasy novel series right now. His talent blows me away. I swear, each generation brings more talent to the table. So, what do you tend to go towards, the more "olden times" stuff with celtic themes and witches and Lord of the Rings feel or more futuristic SciFi themes?

    ReplyDelete
  52. Much of what I've written RPG-wise for publication has been in the fantasy vein, with "Dragonlance" being straight-up fantasy and "Ravenloft" being more gothic/horror flavored. But I presonally prefer mysteries and Star Wars-style science/fantasy-type stuff. (It used to be a joke around the TSR office that I had not been able to get through "Lord of the Rings." I finally did read it, when I was hired to work on the "Lord of the Rings" RPG a few years back.)

    Part of what ended my career in RPGs was a lack of understanding of and interest in computer games. I prefer the face-to-face interaction of traditional, paperbased RPGs. I've been playing catch-up recently, and we'll see if it takes me anywhere. (I've fallen in love with a game called "Guild Wars.")

    ReplyDelete
  53. Oh Jeez, I think that's one my son plays. Crazy. Yeah, he's fascinated with RPGs and this fantasy novel he's doing he adores because he gets to make up an entire world and all the motivations, social structure, magic and such. I get what you mean about the frustration. It's kind of like when I was a kid, we had a huge yard and my parents wouldn't buy us toys, so we learned to use what we had and interacted with the environment, like a giant American boxwood became a condo and we were realtors. Nowadays, kids are given toys that have a story that go with them and they don't have any room for creativity. I pity that. You really are quite complex. Your thought process must be as fertile as Mediterranean soil. I'm a nerd myself so I appreciate the inner world. It never ceased to amaze me what people can come up with when they feed their minds a steady diet of variety and then gestate on it. I'm curious to see what you're coming up with, buddy.
