Pet Sematary

029

I’ve been worried about my lack of interest in reading lately.  (As a hard core bookworm, not being able to concentrate on text was a huge and unwelcome change.)

D sent me a Chapters gift card for my recent birthday.  Rather than spend it on a scented candle or coffee mug, I chose a novel.  I went for one I’d read before, by an author who never disappoints–Stephen King’s Pet Sematary.

I read it in two days!

Friends, I believe (hope!) my reading funk is officially over.

As for Pet Sematary–like many of King’s books, the horror didn’t fully hit until I was snuggled under the duvet with my Chihuahua, and things started going bump in the night.

Eek!  I give Pet Sematary two shaking thumbs up.

All Hallows’ Eve

Ooh–it’s Halloween, and that means spooky times, friends.

Strange children will come knock, knock, knocking on your door demanding candy.

People in the community will wear creepy or inappropriate costumes.  (Did I ever tell you about that time the teacher at my Boy’s Catholic elementary school dressed as a Dominatrix for Halloween?  Seriously–she had a riding crop and a shiny leather bustier.)

Even the pumpkins, normally so jolly and orange, will get in on the act with menacing faces glowing in the night.

In short…it’s a Stephen King world!

Today, the word is BOO!!!
