Monster Madness!

The Great Pumpkin is here! 
Linus was right, and the extra publicity did the trick. Here to host the Monster Madness Blog hop is none other than The Great Pumpkin!

"Well me lovelies, I hear yeh wish ta court some monsters. Being the season of scare, I'm cookin' up a twist, servin' yeh the inside scoop. Grab yer wits and come on a trip inta me neighborhood. La ti da!"

"E'res a real house of cards. Let's ask ol' Frankenstein 'is thoughts 'bout bein' eh monster. 'Es bit of a eh dud, but 'es got moxy.


Yeh'll always find 'em tendin' to 'is precious roses, waiting on 'is lost love. Eh! Frankie! How'd yeh feel 'bout being eh monster on 'alloween?"




"Oh. Hello, Great Pumpkin. Nice to see you. Would you like a rose? They're real pretty, just like you."





"Frankie, ya know I'm not inta ya. Keep yer roses. What's the dish on bein' monstrous on 'alloween, eh?"



"I don't really like to scare people, so I guess it's better on Halloween, what with everyone expecting monsters. At least people don't scream when they see me. It's still lonely, though. I once had this girl I really loved, but she hated me. We were arranged to be married, and I thought it was a good match. She was like a pretty flower, albeit somewhat wilted, but that was just because she didn't feel loved. She looked like a rose to me, but when I gave her one, she just ate it and left. I don't know. No one seems to care."

"Right! Well then, er- thanks for sharin' all that, Frankie. I 'eard she wasn't right in the 'ead anyway. La ti da. Movin' on, then.

Next house's over 'ere. Now, this joker's one of me pals. Ferry Blackwell's a real horror to be 'round, but he's always game. Eh! Ferry! Tell us all 'bout yer 'alloween scare."



"Lookie here! A seedy, orange leer! What a pleasure, my gutty dear. I'll tell you a story that's sure to scare.




See that blue house on the hill? Picture warm bread cooling on the sill. The smell was like a stomach punch, sought by men wanting lunch. I know how tempting it can be! For, I crave Toe Finger bread with tea!



But it didn't end well, as you can guess. Hungry men can make such a mess. Now you'll hear howling cries and see them screaming from ghostly eyes. Look inside, and you'll know what I mean. The walls remember the ghoulish scene.
You can read about The Hillbrow House here. But it's haunted, so remember beware! Mwahaha..."



"Thanks fer illuminatin' us, me friend. We'll steer clear 'round 'at place, for sure. Last stop's over at the gypsy's pad, an' she's always got somethin' up 'er sleeve. Eh! Eldrich! Tell these 'ere people what's happenin' on 'alloween?"
"Pumpkin! It's you! Be careful totting around my things, or I'll curse you! Oh, hello dearies. So nice to see you, and you're just in time for the Faerie Market. You'll need a banana and your imagination, but lovelies like you should have no problem getting around all those naughty pixies. Click here to be whisked away, and keep the magic, my rosy-cheeked cherubs."



"So's the end. You've seen what's it like 'ere in the monsters' hood. Now, git out and git some candy. La ti da!"

  3. So much fun. I had no idea Frankenstein was so articulate, too bad his lady love ate his rose offerings. I have to say my favorite monster is Frankenstein because his story is actually so heartbreaking. I was surprised at how sad the story was when I read it.

    1. Well, Heidi, I don't tell many people how I feel. You know, they always think I'm out to eat them or something. Inside, I just want to feel loved. If I could, I'd give you a rose, but please don't eat it. It just makes me so sad when girls do that. ~ Frankenstein

  7. I think my favorite monster is the vampire. (Not the romantic kind) I don't know why there's just something so creepy about a monster that drinks blood. I like your pumpkin lady. :) Happy Halloween!

    1. Hello, Jemi. I really like the flower you use for your picture. I'd like to give you a rose if you're ever in my neighborhood- watch out for that Ferry character, though. He can be real mean. ~ Frankenstein

  10. Fun! I had to go read about Hillbrow House. Some of my ancestors hailed from that area of Connecticut right about that time. Who knows? They may have seen it. Goosebumps!
