Halloween Week Happy Hour: The Zombie

Here at The Aerie this week, we had an even more lackluster showing of trick-or-treaters than usual — five kids. Five. That’s it. I don’t know what’s with kids these days not wanting to climb a 600 foot hill and walk to the end of our dark cul-de-sac. Sheesh. Regardless, this past week I was…

Flickbuddies: I’ll Be Stalking You

As you might expect, our theme for October (yes, I’m just getting to October) was horror movies. And I thought three of them made an interesting evolutionary trio: Halloween, Friday the 13th, and The Cabin In The Woods. Now to me, Halloween represents that rare thing in Hollywood – an original and well-executed idea. I…

Halloween Drabble: Hangover

It’s been a busy week around The Aerie and around the lab and I never quite got the Halloween-themed drabble out that I was hoping for (but I still like the idea, it will find its place). So, I’m recycling one of my favorites today from a couple of years ago. I think it will…

A Not-So-Scary Aerie

The Aerie is a dead zone for trick-or-treaters, and not like a Stephen King scary sort of Dead Zone either. You see, the Aerie is near the top of a hill, on a dead-end street, and has no houses on the other side of the street. This makes it great for quiet and privacy, but…

Pillow Talk

Penny just wanted me to let everyone know that a long afternoon and evening of the doorbell ringing with trick-or-treaters was very tiring… Adding insult to injury, there’s no chocolate for the dog, though she did say that as a bird-dog she’s looking to participate in “prepping” the Thanksgiving turkey. You know, after she gets…

Friday Drabble: The Call

Remember, a drabble is a very short story of exactly 100 words.  Feel free to join in and write your own drabbles on Fridays and tag them with “friday drabble” and on Twitter with the hashtag #fridaydrabble. The Call Brittle leaves scattered as the wind picked up from seemingly nowhere.  In the flickering lantern light,…

Sounds of the Season

Well, it’s that time of year again.  Time to dust off (if you can dust off mp3s) the songs associated with the upcoming holiday.  No no, I don’t mean Christmas music (because I think that it’s incredibly wrong to play Christmas music before Thanksgiving) – I’m talking about Halloween Music. Now, I know there aren’t…
