Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!
(This is a fun one because we recently saw a Hitchcock film festival!)
Saturday 9: "Alfred
Hitchcock Presents" Theme
1) The Master of Suspense, Alfred Hitchcock, was born in England. Name another pop culture contribution England has made.
Good lord it seems that half of our pop culture was imported
from England. Let's start with the Beatles.
than to current popular music.
I am not a big fan of
scary movies, but the last one to make me gasp, that I remember was The
Sixth Sense, which was not exactly a scary movie, but sure had a
Well, I'm not fond of snakes and I would give a wide berth to
No. Haven't done that
since the kids left home, but for the first time in years, since we only
have Polly now we will give out candy, since it will be easy to keep her
from the door.
Walt is out buying candy now, so I don't know
what we will give this year (I haven't been to a store in about 2 months
now!) If I were shopping, we'd have mini peanut butter cups, mini
Snickers, and M&M peanuts..and I would buy more than we need so I can eat
I was the princess/gypsy type of character.
I don't know if they gave away Snickers when I was a kid, but I hated to find raisins. I was also trick or treating in the days before they put razoer blades in apples, so I often got fruit.
9) Which do you find scarier -- cemeteries or haunted houses?
Neither, really. Since the kids died, I spend so much time in the cemetery they are more peaceful than scary. When Walt and I were dating, we liked to investigate old cemeteries.
As for haunted houses, I don't know that I have ever been in one. If it's a fake haunted house ( decorated for Halloween), that can give me a bit of a fright, I guess, but if it's a real haunted house, I'd love to visit one and see if the spirits would try to communicate with me.

I'd love it if you'd leave a comment!
