I've never been much of a fan of Halloween. As a kid, I reveled in it's costume glory! I was Miss Piggy, various Disney princesses, Sporty Spice and Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz. My mom would take me to the mall to go Trick or Treating and I'd get loads of candy in my plastic pumpkin. As you get older, if you're not a slutty candy bar, animal or tape dispenser, you're no one. As a child, Halloween is OMG awesome!!
As I've gotten older, I have become a chickenshit. Sure, I've always been afraid of scary masks as a kid but I've found that as I get older, they freak me out more than ever. Don't even make me go down the Halloween aisles in stores! I see one plastic rat or fake bug and I want to die and/or crawl out of my skin...or cry.
I've basically come to the conclusion that I am indeed a Halloweenie. I get very uncomfortable looking at scary things. I'm like the buzzkill that brings Diet Coke to Vampire Barbie's blood party. I see a Chucky doll and I scurry away like a scurred squirrel.
I'd much rather look at fluffy kitties with pink bows than anything remotely scary. Horror movies? Hellz to the no! Death metal? Well, no but I have to admit I tend to laugh hysterically at that shit. The "scariest" things I like are Twilight and The Vampire Diaries. So I mean...yeah.
Oh, and of course, this! Oddly enough, I'd watch this video over and over as a kid and it never scared me. I'm a strange one. Disney Sing-Alongs FTW!
I'm perfectly fine in my state of chickenshit-ness. Just don't throw a fake rat at me...please.
