Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!

May your day be filled with guts--


May your pumpkins give you startled expressions--


And may your night be dark and spooky--


It's also the one year anniversary of my random meanderings.

How to celebrate? A bandwagon contest of course! (All the cool kids give away stuff on their blogiversary!)

But of course you're going to have to work for it. Hee hee!

I'm going to go all fourth grade on you and we'll play truth or dare. Except you get to pick whether you want to reveal a truth or the craziest dare you've ever done (I guess that's sort of like a truth--but c'mon I'm doing this over cyberspace!)

Funniest truth or dare will win a prize and everyone else will be put into the pot to have their name randomly chosen.

Deadline will be November 6 at 12:00 a.m. CST...and I'll try to post winners on election day.

I was once dared to eat a sandwhich made of bread, mayo, cheddar cheese, cut up pieces of brownies, jalepeno peppers and pancake syrup. One to never, ever pass on a dare, I did. I ate the whole thing.... and gained super geeky weirdo status amongst all my super geeky weirdo friends... that's my story and I'm sticking with it. I will still do anything for $5. Just dare me...

My area of Indiana is pretty rural and when we had parties about half the girls were from the city and half were from the country. One night we stayed up most of the night playing truth or dare and the girls that were still up took marker and wrote all over the faces of the girls that were asleep. Then we stuck pretzels in their noses. It was, shall we say, not the best idea.

I also froze someone's training bra. Yea, training bra. lol

Yay for CPurl sending Chunky Halloween goodies! (Knitties rock).

And, Happy Blogiversary!

Cool pumpkins too btw.


In high school we played our version of Truth or Dare we called Skeletons in the Closet.

I was dared to run outside nekkid and sit on the patio for in a chair and drink a whole drink.

Well, I get out there, nekkid, sit down in the lounge chair, and start to drink.

They turn the lights on.

A group of about 5 of our boy friends then jumped out of the bushes and scared me, including the guy I had the biggest crush in the world on. Sheesh.

Nekkid me runs inside, trips on the doorway, spills drink, and splays nekkid body on the ground.

Boys come running to see if I was OK.

Color me embarrased.

When I was ten, I prayed for God to send me a dragon egg. I somehow convinced myself that He would, if I prayed hard enough. My plan was that the dragon would be my friend, and I would ride the dragon to school (flying, of course).

My mom didn't allow us to play Truth or Dare, because she said that Dares get you into trouble. Which I guess is true.

Okay, I got one for ya. I was a drama nerd in high school. A rival group of drama nerds used to do something called flagging where they would go to housing developments and steal one of the big colored flags outside the offices. We mocked them for this stupid passtime that was only moderately dangerous and they decided if we were so hot why not challenge us to steal something better?

Long story short, after several weeks of going back and forth over this, each dare escalating to another, I ended up with a railroad crossing light, a parking meter, a stop sign, several street signs, the rival school's scrolling marqius, and finally ALL the flags from three different housing develpoments in the area (the flags all collected on one night). The other nerds finally gave up.

Ah, high school.

I don't have any dares that good, sheesh. So I'll go with an interesting Truth someone tried to trick me with once.

This is exactly what she asked: "Has anyone told you a secret that you still haven't spilled, and what was it?"

Now, that wouldn't work on a smart, capable, *fully awake* person. But it was about 3am by this point, and she *almost* got me.

As it happens, there is one secret in particular, a very embarrassing one, that my best friend in third grade told me, and I have still never spilled, almost twenty years later. I'm sure there are others as well, but it's not like I tallied up every little secret anyone has ever told me and seen which ones I'd kept....

Anyway, I almost fell for it, but at the last minute, I realized I could get out of telling what the secret was by telling whose secret it was, and get around it by swearing up and down that she had asked "who" and not "what". Since we were all so tired anyway, and I had a reputation for being honest, I got away with it!

A truth from Kay:

Disclaimer: I was never a very athletic type of gal.....

In 6th grade we had track and field week at school. We all had to participate. I didn't do too well jumping hurdles or running very far, but by far the worse thing that week was when we had to throw a shot put. It was my turn up. I picked up the shot put, positioned it above my head and instead of pushing it out away from me, I shoved it up and it went up a bit and fell right back down on top of my head. I fell to the ground. I literallly heard bells ringing. The PE teacher came over to me and told me to "shake it off" because "you are okay". I had a knot the size of a goose egg on top of my head for a couple of weeks and the worst headache you can imagine.

Yeah, I'm not too athletic.

A truth:

You know how they say that if a bird craps on you its good luck? An ex and I stopped to kiss under train tracks, where pigeons like to hang out....one took a crap and it landed in between us as we kissed. I still haven't managed to find out what the good luck there was.....

Hmmm, I don't think I'll win at the "funny" category, but the craziest dare I ever done would have to be sailing to Hawai'i on a 32 foot sailboat, just the now Xhusband and I.

29 days, people. With a hum dinger of a rough sail on day 19 wherein I was thrown out of my bunk and slammed so hard onto the sole of the cabin that I busted my tail bone and had to be standing up or lying on my tummy for the rest of the trip...not to mention it took a year to heal...

But my god, there is nothing like smelling the Island of Hawai'i after being at sea for so long(the ocean does not smell like anything, not even fish)...they don't call it the Orchid Isle for not.

It looks like you and the Chunkster had a great time.

My truth - I have a tattoo of a stick man pushing a lawnmower across the top of my *cough* hair.

I also posed naked for a charity calendar, but that isn't half as exciting.

Happy Blogiversary!!!

Hmmm, I'm not sure I can top any of the others. Especially rain.

I'll have to try and rack my feeble memory for something and get back to you...

Happy Blogiversary! And I love the pumpkins!

The craziest thing I did on a dare was pee on the hood of my exboyfriend's car in college. Granted I was pretty drunk, but I don't recommend standing on the hood of a Mustang and squat-peeing. It gets a little messy.

Okay, this isn't a winner either but I thought it was pretty daring for a college kid (plus I feel bad not participating!). One summer when I was 19 I worked for my cousin who was a civil engineer doing some admin stuff. The building commissioner in town hated him. He needed some housing statistics for a presentation but knew the guy wouldn't give them to him. So he asked me to pretend to be doing a paper for school and go ask for it. I was such a good actress that within 10 minutes I was sitting in a big leather wingchair drinking coffee with the guy and bluffing my way through my intense interest in all things engineering. I came back to the office SEVERAL hours later with a shit eatin' grin - all the stats and then some.

In high school I was at a sushi restaurant with two of my friends. One of them dared me to eat the whole ball of wasabi. The terms were that I had to have it in my mouth for a whole minute before I could eat or drink anything. I did it and it was torture. I had never had wasabi before. I was starting to feel sick and we left. I had to lie down in the backseat on the way home and I complained when we went over every bump. We got to my friend's mom's apartment and I walked up the stairs then stood over the balcony and puked...hard. I will never touch wasabi again in my entire life.

Glad you had a happy Halloween!!
