Lonely on a Friday Night--Join Us!


(Yes, that is my viking hat)
Okay, I'm here all evening. Come and go as you like. If I tell someone goodbye and it's quiet with no one else talking, just jump in and say "hi" and I will respond. I'm here, just waiting for signs of life out there.

  1. Pro tip: Vikings did not actually have horns on their helms.

    Nevertheless, that hat is sweet.

    ReplyDelete
  2. Shelby; Yeah, just a fun find at a halloween store.

    ReplyDelete
  3. Nice set of horns you got there lady.

  4. Hey, I'm in for the evening. Just published my ghost book--will be a while till it shows up in Kindle and Nook, but I'm hyped.

    ReplyDelete
  5. I was feeling horny, what can I say? Har Har Har

    ReplyDelete
  6. It's fun when you unleash your inner viking.

  10. Barry--you have me pegged! I'm also half Highlander. Dangerous combo!

    Sandra;
    Yahoo--my sis has a home!!! Hurry and get your internet. I want to get all caught up. I just put the ghost book up but it won't be for sale till probably Sunday on Nook and Kindle.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Hi everyone...

    Thanks Sandra for buying the book, enjoy!

    Hey sis, what's up with the viking hat, lol?

    ReplyDelete
  12. I'm a dork, what can I say. I'm in such a goofy mood, I put on Captain Ron to watch--purely to see Kurt Russel in the Caribbean.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Hey sis;
    I love seeing that profile pic of you because I know that expression, it's like "what are you doing now, sis?" Hee hee. Makes me smile every time I see it. It's my sassy big sis.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I love that movie..."Oh Captain Ron..." I am watching Lionel Richie find out about his greatgrandpa.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Hi Barry are you still here?

    I am sassy and in need of a drink!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'm having the standard bud lite with lime. I swear, I should do ads for them. It's just so refreshing and easy to drink. I'm going to use that recipe Barry put on his blog for absinthe cookies when we do our BF hunt from the cabin. Of course, someone has to make some "special" brownies for Bigfoot too. I think it might bring him out of hiding if our insane giggling doesn't.

    ReplyDelete
  17. We shall bake any type of "special" treats in order to entice the big hairy beast.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Yeah, and if he doesn't want them, we'll just have to "dispose" of them.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Hi Julie hows things

    ReplyDelete
  20. When you said the big hairy beast I thought you were talking about me

    ReplyDelete
  21. Would you eat hemp brownies, Barry? We'd have to ask you to run around nude in the White Mountains cause we were looking for BF and you may not match the description except for being man-like, hairy and standing erect. Har har har

    ReplyDelete
  22. I am good Barry... I did think of you when mentioning "the big hairy beast". Perhaps we can entice you with some "special" brownies, my dear....

    ReplyDelete
  23. I've eaten stranger things but thats another story

    ReplyDelete
  24. I don't eat and tell

    ReplyDelete
  25. You guys are killing me! I'm laughing so hard, my neighbors are thinking I'm having a party.

    ReplyDelete
  26. you are, an online party with your cyber buds.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Seriously. I had beer fizzing in my nose with you trying to get Barry to divulge bad eats.

    ReplyDelete
  28. How do you know they were bad?

    ReplyDelete
  29. I see somebody beat me to the punch about the 'horny' hat.

    Guess I'll just have a beer instead of the punch then - LOL!

    Just popping in to say "Hi!" to my favorite ghost hunter.

    Have a great night and weekend! :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Getting ready to watch Beast Hunter.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Barry;
    You're the one that said you'd eaten strange things.

    Eric/Bubba;
    Have a super weekend--glad you dropped in.

    ReplyDelete
  32. strange isn't bad

    ReplyDelete
  33. Yep, he has the right clothes for the hunt; the Indiana Jones/Josh Gates look.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Sis--I'M SO JEALOUS! I'm ready to get digital god-damned Cox just so I can have the Nat'l Geographic channel. It's probably the only channel I'd want to watch other than Syfy and Travel Channel. I want to hear all about it. Oh, I want to see that soooo badly!

    Barry--strange isn't bad. Hmm, now I am intrigued. Naughtiness aside, what is the weirdest creature you ever ate? (not human)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Barry, have you eaten any of the weird crap that Josh has consumed on DT?

    ReplyDelete
  36. Sis, I will give you a report. He doesn't have a group with him. All are behind the scenes. He is doing interviews with some pretty strange people... he's cute.

    ReplyDelete
  37. nothing weird Poi, rattlesnake at a rattlesnake rodeo, alligator, that all i can think of right away

    ReplyDelete
  38. CUTE??? Oh, you're killing me. I hope they put episodes online to see while I sell my soul to the damn cable company. They have had some awesome science-based ghost shows on that channel too. I just can't live without it.

    Weirdest creature you ever ate? I think snails for me because I really hate snails but they are delicious in garlic oil.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Poi sucks. My bro lived in Hawaii as a kid and he loves the stuff. Don't know how. Ick. But, then, some folks hate grits and I adore those. Rattlesnake--not thrilling. Alligators just don't look like they would taste good. Buffalo is big out here in the west. So-so. Honestly, the worst thing I ever ate--wheatgrass shake. OH GOD! I was burping grass all day.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Man, I haven't lived because other than buffalo, I haven't really had anything weird to eat. Another think to put on the ol' bucket list.

    Yes Sis, he is cute and has a nice smile.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Bet his smile doesn't bet my guy's. He gets those sexy dents in his cheeks when he smiles like Matthew McConaughey. Yum! So, now we need to put on your bucket list "Julie must eat weird meat." Do you think the hub's will allow that? You can't let me go nuts with the lines tonight. My mind is in the gutter.

    ReplyDelete
  42. He might frown on it but I must try new things. Let your dirty mine go Sis, I am sure Barry has, lol.... ok, me too.

    And no he doesn't have the Matt/Josh dimples, just a pretty set of white teeth.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I was thinking about my handsome devil, not Josh or Ben. :-)

    Okay, next crazy trip, we gotta find something weird for you to try. Oh, hell! Next trip is Holbrook. That town gives me the heebie jeebies more than almost any town in the country. Don't know what it is about it. It has weirdness to it. Just very pod-people-ish and dark and strange and "off" like the movie "Psycho." And, we'll be sleeping in a Tee Pee, huh? haha!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Looking forward to the trip to Holbrook. It sounds like it is going to be fun. There should be interesting stories and pictures come out of this trip.

    ReplyDelete
  45. sometimes you gotta let everything go Julie

    ReplyDelete
  46. Barry;
    I make my sis do things she never thought she'd do. She has to go through the Autumnforest crazy machine when she hangs with me.

    Sis,
    The trip will be very cool. You and I will have amazing new stuff to add to our experiences and our photos and videos. I plan to do some crazy hostessing of videos.

    Now, I'm watching SuperBad. I love McLovin!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Yes Barry, when I am with Autumnforest it is an adventure. I never know what kind of craziness we will get into. When I finally get the nerve to try something bizarre to eat, she will be there encourage me to do it.

    I love McLovin and his two superbad cop buddies.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Yeah, the movie is a classic. I have to admit that my favorite is American Wedding from the American Pie series. I laugh so hard, I cry. I am into crude humor, so easily amused.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Merlin is off see ya'll later

    ReplyDelete
  50. Merlin was on Syfy

    ReplyDelete
  51. They just met McLovin in the liquor store.

    ReplyDelete
  52. how about some gold flake vodka...

    ReplyDelete
  53. Seriously! I loved when they were at the party with the psycho dude who crashed it and the one guy had to sing a song to prove he was the guy they thought he was. That was so hilarious!

    ReplyDelete
  54. not to mention the gross period blood on the pants... twisted

    ReplyDelete
  55. Oh jeez, I hadn't gotten to that part yet, but yeah--noting was off limits in this movie. I really love McLovin hanging with the cops and shooting and messing with the car.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Enjoy the movie Sis, I am tired. Talk with you later.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Okay sis

    Anyone else, I am still around all evening.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Hey Autumnforest, there is problem with your "What did you do as a kid" poll. There is an important option missing...All Of The Above. :D

    ReplyDelete
  59. KnitChaos;
    I had the same difficulty. I just put the one that freaked me out the most. You'll like tomorrow morning's post. It's about the dark games played at girl's PJ parties.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Ooh! Does it involve sharing twisted tales while sitting in cramped, dark, crawlspaces with only black candles for light?

    Er...or maybe that was just me and my friends. :p

    ReplyDelete
  61. KC;
    It was ALL us gals that did it, at least us fun gals!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Woot! Good times!

    In hindsight, wasn't the best idea at my friend Jenny's house. They lived with her rather uptight aunt and such activities had a few of us subsequently banned from the house for being "evil".

    On second thought, that makes the memories even more amusing. Nevermind. heh

    ReplyDelete
  63. KC;
    It's always being on the edge of getting caught that makes it the most fun. I had a friend that when we did light as a feather/stiff as a board freaked out so much, her parents picked her up early. Of course, it probably didn't help that we were doing it in my big scary mansion with the lights out and the hurricane lamp lit.

    ReplyDelete
  64. light as a feather, stiff as a board...

    ReplyDelete
  65. Unablogger;
    You weren't an adolescent girl, were you? Knock the sly smile off your face, my friend. It was a legitimate scary game.

    ReplyDelete
  66. dang, I was trying to get in early and be ironic on that one

    ReplyDelete
  67. Yeah, come to think of it, makes you wonder about those girl games, light as a feather/stiff as a board and Blood Mary--what were we obsessed with??

    ReplyDelete
  68. I'm slow on the trigger tonight, the laptop controls still confound me. And my capacity for brilliant repartee peaks around midnight and starts to ebb thereafter

    ReplyDelete
  69. So you're double handicapped, eh? How's the weather in my home state?

    ReplyDelete
  70. It's 43 degrees right now, which feels downright balmy. I'm going to the Air and Space Museum by Dulles tomorrow, then scouting the SE DC area for dimly lit motels.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Hey, sounds like a plan to me! God, I bet Dulles has really built up. I remember as a kid growing up there, they had the most fucking cool thing. The room you sit in with the seats waiting for the plane was actually a bus and it would drive you to the plane when it came in. You go inside, sit down, wait, and it drives you to the plane and hooks up to it. That was a brilliant design. I heard they nixed that. That sucks. You ever get to the George Mason campus, you're right on the edge of the property where I grew up on Roberts Rd.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Okay, now that's a little synchronous. My wife's parents lived at 4015 Roberts Rd when we got married. Are you sure I don't know you?

    ReplyDelete
  73. 4300 Roberts Rd. Can't miss it--right in the middle of Roberts Rd. Of course, now there's condos around it on a little off street called Aspen Willow Dr., but the mansion is still there on the hill. Near the Fairfax Swimming Pool. I went to Green Acres and Robinson.

    ReplyDelete
  74. I may swing by there tomorrow and see if I can snap a couple of pics.Email harropja@gmail.com, I lost my unablogger password, I'll send the pics to you.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Way cool! The mansion and the front boxwood maze are still intact. The historical society and neighborhood fought the contractor so he couldn't tear down the building---build in the mid 1700s and a Civil War hospital--jeez. I put a curse on him-only time I ever did that. I heard he went bankrupt. There is justice.

    ReplyDelete
  76. I'll try to take a bunch of pics. Fairfax is a traffic disaster now, even out to Manassas is crazy. Saturday should be a little easier to navigate.

    ReplyDelete
  77. It's a different world there now. It was a real quaint bedroom community when I was growing up. My dad worked in DC at the Post Office Headquarters and commuted every day. I can't imagine doing that now. Don't sweat it if you don't get by there, but if you do, you'll see the origins of Autumnforest. You must imagine, however, no condos, just more boxwood mazes behind the house, slave cottages, a barn and stables, orchards, grape arbor, wisteria arbor, oh hell, imagine the estate in its grandeur. Well, buddy, I'm hitting the hay for the night. I have a 9-hour work day tomorrow -- ugh! Just put my "Was That a Ghost?" book up on Kindle and Nook tonight. They should be available by Sunday. I'm so excited. I've been dying to get a book about ghosts out with the Autumnforest take on it. Oh, and if you work for the Post--you can look in the archives--lots of stuff on the house. My father might be in there too. He was in Who's Who in American Government--put the alcohol recovery program in the post office and Amtrak. Good luck--I will send positive energy your way.

    ReplyDelete
  78. good night, I hope I can rattle the old memory cage for you tomorrow.
