Food: Chupa Chups Spooky Jelly Candy Pizza

Due to the wonder of the Yumpkin I felt that it was only far to find something curious for my spouse

Happily I stumbed accross the Chupa Chups Spooky Jelly Candy Pizza, which looks most curious indeed – and was half price, which is my favourite type of curious

Food: Halloween Yumpkin

Hotel Chocolat make a grinning Halloween pumpkin and it looks cheerfully ghoulish – however at £5.50 for 50 grams I’ve never been prepared to buy one

My darling spouse kindly ventured into town on the 1st November to buy me a reduced price one; which was a lovely gesture however I like the look of it too much to actually eat it just yet

I wonder if watching ‘Sleepy Hollow’ would make me more or less inclined to eat him

Nails: Skulls

I’m trying to recall how this posting lark went and apparently Wednesdays were trying to inspire me to actually grow my nails and do pretty things with them

Well this is Thursday so I’m late, however the thought is totally there.

Skulls seem appropriate so close to Halloween and to the Day Of The Dead, and who doesn’t like a pile of the skulls of their enemies?

Book: Lisa Shearin’s ‘The Dragon Conspiracy’ – “Not for goblins. Pink is the color of pure evil.”

‘The Dragon Conspiracy’ is a sequel to Lisa Shearin’s ‘The Grendel Affair’ which features the adventures of the SPI – the Supernatural Protection and Investigations , specifically Makenna Fraser who is their newest Seer and is rather out of her depth.

‘The Grendel Affair’ was odd but intriguing – basically whatever goes bump in the night is thrown into a modern urban setting and manages to be believable. It was a good book but on my initial read I felt it was a little light, however upon rereading it I was pleasantly surprised.

‘The Dragon Conspiracy’ had an interesting premise but felt a little speedy in terms of plot resolution. I think I need to reread it with a quieter mind.

Film: Hotel Transylvania – “One of your piranhas in the lake is very rude. He ate my sister-in-law.”

One of the more amusing things to come out of the Sony hack is how many Sony employees apparently don’t like Adam Sandler films.

I don’t think I’ve seen many Adam Sandler films, it just sometimes feels like the trailers last for 90 minutes or longer…

‘Hotel Transylvania’ is however surprisingly good, Count Dracula owns a monster-only hotel where no humans are permitted – at all.

His hotel is packed with monsters to celebrate his daughter Mavis’ 118th birthday when a random human backpacker arrives. Dracula ends up disguising the pesky human as Frankenstein’s cousin.

The pesky human helps make Mavis’ party more hip, allowing the obvious plot device of him and Mavis falling in love.

Whilst the basic plot is predictable and the musical numbers are iffy, there is a decent sense of humour present and some of the jokes are amusing. It was far better than I expected – although the ending was a little iffy!

Nails: Scooby Doo nails – “Gee, Scraps, you didn’t have to freak out like a jerk and kill all humanity”

Still tired from moving house – and from the cat-based noises that come from G and F exploring their territory.

They don’t explore quietly and it is exhausting having random horror movie noises for most of the night. It’s like an annoying version of Scooby-Doo but with no one to unveil the beasties.

That is assuming that the beasties can be unmasked, I am pretty sure they must have supernatural powers to make that much noise!

Food: Cadbury Animals Halloweenies – More trick than treat

These are basically Mini Animal biscuits in arguably Halloween shapes, for example cats, toads and spiders. The appeal is the same as the mini animal biscuits, you pull out a biscuit, look at the shape then bite the head off.

I hadn’t previously noticed how much more biscuit there is than chocolate on mini animals and these really didn’t hit the spot – even if I could bit their heads off.
