Day 22

Friday, June 22, 2012
Do you like scary movies that make you jump?

In a word - no!

I don't do scary movies. I don't like them, I don't enjoy them, I don't want anything to do with them.

I haven't seen most of the "big" ones that the rest of the world has seen. Most of what I HAVE seen, I've seen on TV, which, thankfully, means they were edited a bit.

When I was younger, I liked to read scary books (lots of Stephen King when I was in junior high!) but then I wouldn't watch whatever movie was made later. I vividly remember reading Amityville Horror in Mr. McGurty's 6th grade classroom. I'd hurry and finish my work, then open my book behind my desk, on my lap, and read. When I got to the scene with the blood dripping down the walls of the bathroom, I LOUDLY gasped, scaring myself and all my friends! Dork!

Around that time, I also read all the Flowers in the Attic books. Creepy!!

So, to sum it up - scary movies = no, scary books = yes

Aren't you glad you know that now, so you can go on and enjoy your weekend?

I used to love Halloween and Freddie Krueger and Jason type movies and Stephen King too! Now they give me bad dreams.
My sister and I were huge VC Andrews fans.

I used to read all the Stephen King books too...and amityville horror? So freaking scary. Remember the pig Jodie? yeah, think about that when you are walking down to your basement tonight. :)
Today? I don't do scary. I'm scared enough just watching the news.
