HUNTING WIDOW, haunted toilets and Hocus Pocus!

Its the second day of elk camp..... and I'm loving it!  I have the bed to myself, well, almost to myself.  Rocky sneaked in sometime last night but she's not the bed hog she used to be and she doesn't snore like Chewbacca so I hardly even noticed her there.  And being as today is National Dessert Day, we celebrated by endulging in a half gallon of Blue Bunny Cappuccino Fudge Blitz ice cream. 

While the stress level of my job has almost completely dissipated, there is one thing that remains unchanged.  The automated lavatories continue to harass my hiney.  I used to think it coincidental but after yesterday I have come to believe that it is personal.  After reluctantly using stall number 3 and trying without success to beat the automatic flusher, I dried off, gathered what was left of my dignity and exited the stall.  Then, almost in spite, the toilet flushed again!  And as I passed the next two stalls those toilets activated as well... even though they were vacant!  Unbelievable!  Coincidence?  I think not!  I think there is an Automatic Toilet Fairy with a very warped sense of humor.

Do you have a favorite movie for the various holidays?  I do.  We always start off the Christmas season with at least one viewing of 'The Christmas Story' and the original 'How the Grinch Stole Christmas'.  And my all time favorite Halloween movie is 'Hocus Pocus'!  To be honest, I watch that movie all year round!  I think I must have been a Sanderson Sister in a past life.  Any how, the movie is about to begin and Rocky is adamant that I watch it with her.  I probably won't last through the whole movie since I have to work in the morning, but not a problem, I'll just watch it again tomorrow!

LMAO about the toilets. They are the opposite with me. They don't wanna flush most of the time.

I love Hocus Pocus too!! :)

We watch all the holiday movies you mentioned plus "a christmas carol", "Frosty the snowman", "Rudolph", and whatever the name of the one is where young santa battles old man winter?  

hugs :)

Hmmm.. Hocus Pocus... I love that movie! I'm guessing you have the Disney Channel and are enjoying Hauntobter. I've been catching a lot of them. I actually really like all of the Halloweentown ones. Oh, and yesterday afternoon was Monsters, Inc. I didn't really think about it being a Halloween pic, but heh, Monsters, so I guess it works <LOL>

My brothers and I liked starting off on Thanksgiving Day with The Nightmare Before Christmas. My wife hates it. Now there's just me to drive her nuts with the flick...

I've been out of the loop.  I've been visiting my parents in Washington state.  For THREE weeks.  Not something I recommend for the faint of heart.  We are back now and I am catching up on blogs.
I love Blue Bunny Cappuccino Fudge Blitz ice cream!  Super yum.
My mother in law is the Christmas freak.  She has all of her movies lined up to watch billions of times.  She even watches them all summer too.  I love How the Grinch Stole Christmas (original one!).
