Return of The Jerk Squad

If you want to know where some of the biggest, rudest jackasses in Seattle were this morning I can say for sure they rode bikes to 2nd Avenue and then parked them in the one and only  handicapped spot in the lot.

There’s something truly vile about a bunch of able bodied people parking their bikes- which they ride because they want to save the planet-in a spot designated for handicapped people.

Disgraceful and shameful doesn’t even BEGIN to cover it.

Deck The Halls

This is year my favorite Halloween decorations- the high end ones that they use in haunted houses- have turned out to be the ones that involve Aliens and Morgues.

I guess I’m drawn to these props because I’m a Science Geek and I know my way around an embalming room.

So what do I find the most disturbing about these sets and props? What is it about them that gives me the chills, gives me nightmares, makes me scream ( just a bit) when they come to life and scream and moan and jump at me with their mechanical arms and jaws desperately working before there power is cut off?

I’ll be honest- that’s not my reaction at all.

My reaction is to look around and make sure nobody is watching me smile.

But I am smiling.

And I’m laughing.

I can’t help myself, sometimes.

Home Scream Home

I want to find a haunted house

to make my very own

I want to find a haunted house

so I can hide my bones

I want to find a haunted house

with a garden full of stones

I want to find a haunted house

so you can visit me

                                                         when you feel dark

and hungry

and cold.

 

 

 

Trick or Treat-Mostly Trick!

Here’s a story I wrote about a tough Halloween Night for a couple of seasoned Halloween Revelers.

It’s posted at  ‘ Modern Creative Life ‘ and I hope you will check my story and the many wonderful articles and stories while you’re there

I keep catching glimpses of the odd and macabre from the corner of my eye.

I know.

You should see what is right in front of me at times.
It’d give you nightmares.

Sticking To It

Photo A.M. Moscoso

Underneath the Pike Place Market in Seattle, Washington

on a dark little road is the world famous

GUM WALL.

People from all over the world like to look at the Gum Wall and they even take turns getting their picture taken in front of it.

This is how it works:

You chew gum, take it out of your mouth stick it to the wall and make

art.

Myself, I’d rather not do anything that brings me in direct contact with the wall.

But then again, I never claimed to be an artist.

It actually smells kind of nice down in Post Alley, some of the time.

On the other hand, it’s almost a relief when you go back upstairs and you get a nose full of freshly caught fish.

I guess if you have to be famous for something, you could do worse then fish and chewing gum.

I guess.

Our Day Involved Zombies and Such

I sent my Nieces into the Zombie Exhibit because I wanted some pictures of   me  I mean  them having fun.

Looks like only one of my nieces made it out of the exhibit.

Sad face.

Boy is my sister going to be mad I left one of them  behind as Zombie Food.

Mad but not necessarily shocked.

There was something written on the Wall here.

Go ahead.

Put your face REALLY CLOSE TO THE SCREEN and check it out.

I dare you.

Nothing says fun afternoon with the family like finding tanks full of

severed zombie heads

together!

Ho, ho, ho.

Kermit isn’t a Zombie.

Or headless

Yet.

Remember Boos an Ghouls!

The family that goes to horror exhibits and laughs most of the time when they’re going through it is probably familiar with sharp instruments and at least one knows her way around an embalming room.

So I would suggest not cutting in front of them in line or getting in the way when they’re taking pictures.

Just a friendly PSA

My Enduring Bones.
