Why not end a lovely weekend by putting on the radio and reading!

I reckon that’s the best way to do it! Since 11ish I’ve been led out on my bed in comfy lounging clothes (without a mask of eyeliner believe it or not!) with my laptop arms distance away from me with the social networking sites watching my every move! I started off by reading “Destined” by P.C and Kristin Cast which is the 9th book in the "House of Night series" and was released in the UK on the 25th which my gorgeous boyfriend bought me on our one year celebration! The books brill so far, picks the story up exactly where it left off; it’s just unfortunate I had to wait so long for its arrival.

Then I really felt like being transported to a different world by the power of Piara Strainge’s amazing book “Little child” of which has managed to draw me in from the first page. The book was recommended to me and was described as “unputdownable” which is a perfect way to describe the book. I recently got out of the habit of carrying a book everywhere with me since someone said “do you think I’m that boring you must bring a book with you?” they were joking…I think! But whenever I had a spare moment I never had a book at hand, but now I’m back in to the habit carrying this book around with me so the second I have a spare moment I can continue reading. It immediately dives into the action and drip feeds you information-I already have recommended it and I haven’t even finished it yet, a must read!

With Kerrang radio running along with nice upbeat music in the background I’m having a lovely relaxing day-despite the fact there is children running around rioting upstairs. I also had a spare moment to finish decorating for Halloween; cobwebs and tarantulas at the door, spooky sweet holder (grabbing skeleton hand included!) and my pumpkins out front. Gotta love Sundays!

Saturday 9! Mr. Roboto

1. Do you enjoy holidays like Halloween or is your approach more robotic?
I do love the holidays! Halloween being my favourite! I love dressing up as I have many costumes (witch, zombie, Freddy Kreuger, Batwoman, corpse, vampire, you name ‘em!) and it’s an excuse to act like a child and eat lots of treats and scare yourself!  And I love decorating all spooky and making scary looking food!

2. Have you ever been to a haunted house?
Hmm…well there’s the Disney version of the haunted house which I’ve been in on numerous occasions1 but if we are discussing “actually” haunted houses then I shall say maybe! When I was young I was sharing a room with my younger cousin at my granddads house, which is older than him and belonged to his parents before he inherited it. One of the many nights I had spent there my cousin woke up screaming and panicking and he was certain he’d seen a ghost right next to the bed. The next morning we told our granddad and my cousin explained what he looked like and granddad looked shocked and told us he’d seen the ghostly figure before around but thought it was in his head and told us it was his dad. To this day I wonder whether or not he was just winding us up or not, but my cousin seemed positive of what he had seen!

3. What are you doing for Halloween this year?
I am going to sound extremely boring! But I was hoping to have a Halloween party but no ones ever free at the same time! Unfortunately I’m doing my first shift at work but I might make up for it next year by having a massive haunted party-decorations and everything!

4. What was your lamest Halloween costume ever?
Probably one of the first times when I went trick or treating which was when I was 7 or 8. I dressed in black (what I normally do anyway!) put in fake fangs and a witch hat and said “I’m a witch vampire!” I was just a 7 year old with little interest in it all!

5. Is handing out candy fun for you, or more of a nightmare?
I’m fine when it’s the little kids but when I open the door and the people are taller than me I worry. First of all-who on earths behind those masks? Do I know you? Throw the candy and run!! Even worse when you’re out of candy!

6. Do you buy trick-or-treat candy and end up eating it yourself?
You need to learn to buy too much! Then it’s all yours! Yummy!

7. Did you carve any pumpkins this year?
I did indeed! All nightmare before Christmas, took me AGES!

8. What was your favourite costume as a child?
I had this really cool looking cape thing which was black netting and looked like spider webs and a witches dress that my mum bought me which looked all Victorian but I made it into a vampire looking costume which was when I began to LOVE vampires.

9. What is your biggest pet peeve about trick-or-treaters?
If your old enough to have a job-go buy your own candy rather than stealing mine! You have no need to go trick or treating and eating sweets which the little kids have to scavenge after you’ve all raided the streets before going to your late night party. Plus if the lights are off it means we don’t want to give you/don’t have sweets!

Thanks for reading! Blackbutterfly

Saturday 9: The Last DJ

1. Who was favorite DJ and what radio station did you listen to as a kid?
be honest I’m not a radio person; I was more of a CD person. Only recently have I started listening to the radio more, however I have to listen to it on freeview because it’s the only way I can listen to kerrang radio.

2. What has been the weirdest thing you have worn in public?
A full corpse/zombie sort of outfit which I happened to wear to the McDonalds car park then the entire walk home from a friends house. It was a Halloween party but it was before Halloween itself. Torn leggings, black layered dress fake blood everywhere (as well as make-up). Although to be honest I do often wear things people give me funny looks for! However I love my baggy Tripp combats or my frilled Tripp skirt.

3. What was the best part of last weekend?
The part where I made stuffed mushrooms! Rather nice with steak, stilton sauce and potato wedges (nice and healthy me!.

4. What was the most effective punishment for you as a kid?
What on earth do you mean I’ve always been an angel! 0 :)

5. Would you lie to your significant other to not hurt their feelings?
I am honestly an awful liar and he knows it! If I tried to hide something he can tell instantly like a 6th sense or something. Plus it would take a lot to hurt his feelings he’s a very happy optimistic person!

6. We're taking you order for breakfast. What would you like?
Oooo…go on then bacon sandwich. Crispy bacon if you can. Maybe with some mushrooms…and sausage…ah go on then full English without the beans and eggs!

7. Do you celebrate Halloween? If yes, do tell. If no, why not?
Yes! I love Halloween! All spooky and fun, there’s all dressing up, sweets and an excuse to have a party. To be honest I find it more exiting now than I did before. I don’t see it as celebrating the dead though, I just see as it as an excuse to have a scare and do something fun! Plus I can wear anything as Goth as I like and won’t be judged as I’ve said before.

8. Do you hand out candy to the neighborhood kids?
I do! I have a really cool candy pot where a hand comes out and grabs the intruding fingers on the sweets! Plus it gives me another excuse to dress up. Although I don’t like making the little children cry when I over scare them :(

9. What's the favorite age you've been, so far?
I MISS SCHOOL! It was easier…probably year 10 was the easiest-no exams that year just bits of course work here and there. No worrying about money or anything! However I am happy in the place I am now, I have an amazing boyfriend, wonderful family and I don’t have to be around people that put me down any more I can just walk away.

Hope you've enjoyed reading my answers for this weeks saturday 9!
