dark voices never stop
save me from myself

Happy Caturday!

Rejoice, Halloweenophiles! Now, that July 4th is officially over, the unofficial start of the Halloween season is creeping closer.  Soon, we’ll start seeing Halloween merch in craft and retail stores,  haunt announcements will follow, party planning begins, and Halloween will be in full swing before we know it. Until then, enjoy some spooky kitty art by Joanna Nelson.

Summer is here, and with it, the desire to make quick and easy dinners that won’t cause heat stroke during the hot, sweltering weather. So, when I came across this Halloween snack idea from the Cupcake Diaries blog, I thought, this totally doubles as a great summer dinner idea!

Worst Dads in Horror

Posting this blog a day late and a dollar short, just like dear ‘ole dad. If you were one of the millions who spent Father’s Day pining over your lost, non-existent volatile relationship with daddy dearest, cheer up, and be glad you weren’t the offspring of any of these bad dads of horror.

It doesn’t really get much worse than having Satan for a dad. Sure, there are probably perks to being the Antichrist, but the trade-off is lifetime of micromanagement from mid-level staffers on daddy’s payroll.
