Nightmares & A New Year

As a haunter, I understand that it's rather common to have Halloween nightmares throughout the year. I've had my share of dreams where I'm running around as the sun is setting on Halloween and I don't have a single prop set up yet. I'm always panicking and trying to debate if I should just scrap the whole thing. Usually it ends with me in the middle of the front lawn trying to set up a prop as kids are starting to come up for candy.

I had one last night. It was late on Halloween and I was running around accusing everyone in sight of stealing my acrylic paints. I had a bunch of props that needed to be painted before they could be set up. I panicked and started to run down the street towards a super market a few blocks away. I remember kids coming out of their houses and I do believe I was close to tears. Stupid dream.

Happy New Year.

If I never again have that first dream you described, I'll be a very happy person. I've had that one quite a few times.

That second one was funny... I wonder what somebody wanted with all that paint?

Well 09 should be a great year for Haunting....I will be going to my first haunters convention at the end of April, going to build a couple of big props, and get a couple of props from the shoppe.
