*Refuses to Move From Couch*



It's not Sunday unless you completely waste it then feel really sad around 8 pm.

It's over 100 degrees outside. I got the a/c cranked up and the windows all covered. I cannot wait for fall to be here.

Beware Those Big Cats

Illustration From Jorinda and Joringel Of a Black Cat by Arthur Rackham

"At first I thought it was a cat but it was too big for that," she said. "It was black and had a long tail. There was white on each foot."

The Haunted House

Stephen Gammell

"She had no eyeballs, but there was a sort of blue light way back in her eye sockets. And she had no nose on her face.
Then she started talking. It sounded like her voice was coming and going with the wind blowing it…"
-"The Haunted House" from Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (or at least of the books in the series) by Alvin Schwartz

It Was Awfully Quiet This Morning

The Mystic Forest. Sintra, Portugal. Photographer unknown.
"Then away out in the woods I heard that kind of a sound that a ghost makes when it wants to tell about something that's on its mind and can't make itself understood, and so can't rest easy in its grave, and has to go about that way every night grieving."
- Mark Twain, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

Dancing About

Source Unknown

They say that shadows of deceased ghosts 
Do haunt the houses and the graves about, 
Of such whose life's lamp went untimely out, 
Delighting still in their forsaken hosts.
- Josuah Sylvester
