We got a new cat

It is a black cat....and at night it glows in the dark.


I do not usually buy decorations from chain stores anymore.  I prefer to support my friends that make stuff :)

But when I saw this cat, I had to have it.

Needs a name

BTW - Hal does not appear to be happy about this situation.

I'm very pleased to hear you say that, because I'm giving it to you

I can't go on forever, and I don't really want to try. 

So who can I trust to run the factory when I leave and take care of the Oompa Loompas for me? 

Not a grown up. 

A grown up would want to do everything his own way, not mine. So that's why I decided a long time ago that I had to find a child.

RIP Mr. Wilder.

You will forever the magical part of my childhood.

I usually never see her

Dor, the Angry Cat.

She has her own facebook page because all the pictures of her look like she wants you all to DIE.

But mostly she just hides and sleeps.

That is until I have to get out this very large section of black fabric to sew for a projection effect backdrop........

.....then I cannot get rid of her.


I feel a nap is order

This fabric needs more cat fur...just my opinion.

They are so little how can the do any harm

...don;t believe that for a second.

Last year one of the crew started making baby demons.  Fun and creative, they look cute hanging around the abbey.

So we taught how to make them at HAuNTcon  and West Coast Haunters Convention this past year.

And then she made some more.  They are adorable.

They are putting blood in the ice cream

(shaking my head) Oh Portland, you never cease to entertain me.

We really are a group of weird people.   And I love you.

Even when you do something silly like put blood pudding in your ice cream.

I kid you not.

Salt & Straw (a local Portland fav for ice cream) has announced it's Halloween flavors.   And you guessed it, one of them has blood in it.

Some days it is really good to be vegetarian.

I give you Dracula's Blood Pudding.   The ice cream includes real blood.  For those of you that do no know what blood pudding is.....that is what google is for.  It is disgusting, trust me.

If that is not enough they say it has a 'hint of chicken liver'

OMG - you have got to be fucking kidding me!!!!!  Who would do something like that to ice

(sound of frog queen get out of her chair and running away)

I am back now, good thing my office is close to the bathroom.  I think I just lost my appetite for ice cream for the rest of my life!

Oh, but wait, there are more!

Great Candycopia - lots of candy crushed up in butterscotch ice cream.
I mean, how can that not be awesome!

Jack o' Lantern - Pumpkin sherbet.
YUM! Frog queen 100% on board with this one.

Essence of Ghost - A grayish sherbet which is bitter, sweet with 'slightly musky' flavor.  
What the hell is that supposed to mean, you are just shitting me now!

Love Potion Sorbet - a combination of aphrodisiac fruits and spices
How do you tie that to Halloween??  No, that is not a rhetorical question.  I really want to know how that is Halloween related.  Really?

All kidding aside, they do make great ice cream and if you are in the Portland, Oregon or Los Angeles area.  Check it out.....except for the Dracula's Blood, no one should try that.

It might seem like a good idea

to get me bath stuff.  Because if you know me, you know that I have a large soaking tub upstairs that I basically live in in the winter time.  Love me a bubble bath.

But I hate cheap bath products.  Those crappy gift sets they sell at Christmas....yeah, no.

I really only love one bath product....well maybe two.

My favorite by far is Lush bubble bars.

Where is this going.......

Look!  They got new Halloween stuff in stock!

Pumpkin - Bath Bomb

Monsters' Ball - Bath Bomb

Multicolored mutant

Sparkly Pumpkin - Bubble Bar

Transform bath time into a ball

Boo - Luxury Bath Melt

One spicy spirit

I am a big fan of the bubble bars and bath melts so I will be getting several of both.  I have tried the sparkly pumpkin, 

I heard you gasp!  'The frog queen touched something sparkly?  Isn't that a sign of the apocalypse?*"

It comes wrapped in plastic. So I am safe.

I was a bit worried when I got it that I would have a frog queen and a bathtub that looked like this

But surprisingly, no gold on me or the must be magic sparkles.  Or the sparkles know of my reputation and are so scared of me that they high tail it down the drain.  (Maybe they heard about that apocalypse rumor?)

Anyway, highly recommend it.  It is very warm spicy smelling, Cinnamon and cloves and that kind of nummness.

Review on the Boo bath melt to come later.

I am not a big fan of the bath bombs, but I really have to try the pumpkin one, just is a pumpkin.

* Just for clarification. The sign of the apocalypse that you are thinking of is if the frog queen ever wears pink.
