Blog Version Of The Halloween Meme

I saw this on The Stirrup Queens blog this morning, and couldn't resist playing along. It is time to have a little fun with this blogging thing - especially since I'm still stuck on level 325 of Candy Crush after trying to beat it for two weeks. I need a distraction from the candies that just won't be crushed.

These are Melissa's directions:
Take the categories below. Open your blog. Look at the first comment on each of your last 10 posts. Fill in one name per category (keeping the order of most recent post to 10 posts ago) and link their name to their blog. Then hit publish. If you have a post without a comment, skip to the next one. And then chide your readers for screwing up your meme: obviously, they need to step it up and leave more comments.

In honour of every horror movie made in the 80's:
1. Decides the creepy house is safe. Mary
(I think this comes from watching too many Disney movies and not enough horror movies. Not that there is really such a thing as too many Disney movies.)

2. Screams like a Banshee. Tamara
(You were just upset that you dropped your camera before you could snap a picture of the killer.)

3. Scares you as a joke. Robbie K
(I will get you back for this one day.)

4. Goes into the woods and gets killed. Erika
(This seems particularly sad because your blog is called The Girl Next Door Grows Up, and now you won't be able to fulfill that title.)

5. First to go insane. Stephanie Faris
(Don't worry, we are all just one half-step behind you.)

6. Murdered saving someone. Kate
(So sad. At least you were wearing your Saved By The Bell t-shirt when it happened.)

7. Has your back no matter what jumps out. Tia - Becomin Neurotic

8. Has a solid survivor plan no one listens. Alison
(Your plan must not have involved eating cookies. I would have listened to that plan for sure.)

9. Runs off screaming never to be seen again. Kristen
(Wait, wait! I'll run with you! <---these are words I will never say or type again.)

10. Is the real killer. Crystal
(Oh Crystal, won't the Ewoks be disappointed in you?)

Do you agree with the results?
Is this a movie you would watch?
Which character type would you be in a horror movie?


  1. How fun, Tracie. Sometimes it's so nice to take a little break and just do a FUN post, isn't it?! Of course, I had to click through and see who all your commenters were :)


  2. OMG I die, this is SO awesome!!!!
    But you know, any plan of mine will definitely involve baked goods of some kind. :)

  3. What fun! I love how the comments worked out.

  4. haha. This is fun and SO me! Also, I don't know if you knew that Melissa from Stirrup Queens is my first cousin. Her father is my father's older brother. Well..was. My father passed away in 1984 but it's still so cool that you read her blog and you "know" me!

  5. Bwahahahahahahahaha. THIS.IS.AWESOME!!!! (and Alison would totally have the best plan). SO much fun!! --Lisa

  6. HAHA!!! This is HILARIOUS! And I agree with Lisa, Alison would definitely have the best plan. And yes, I would totally run away screaming and never be seen again. That worked out perfectly!

  7. Ha -- I was just about to say that Tamara is my cousin and she would totally scream like a banshee. :-)

  8. This is a lot of fun!
    If ever there was a time for baked goods, it would be this one, I think! :)

  9. This looks like fun! I may join in!

  10. That was so funny!!!! Thank you!

    I will totally avoid the woods now :-)

  11. Awesome post! I'm totally doing it today!
