Phantasmagorical Phriday Phive

A mixture of the deep and the shallow today, in honor of All Hallows Eve and All Saints Day---

1) Favorite Halloween Candy

2) Least Favorite Halloween Candy

3) Best Costume Ever

4) Worst Costume Ever

5) A Saint you treasure (please feel free to use the definition of "Saint" that is meaningful to you and to your faith tradition and life experience)

Round-Up to follow later today; I'll be hiding out upstairs while my ninth-grader hosts a group of friends for what is NOT A PARTY, MOM!


  1. love it :)

    We don't have hallowe'en here so these are just general answers

    1) English Cadbury's crunchie bar

    2) peppermints

    3) I won second prize going as Paddington bear with my friend as Mr Brown (it was a bears picnic, and non bears were eliminated but somehow we weren't - we got a bottle of plonk for our effort and laughed a lot)

    4) Friar Tuck at a Robin Hood 'do' as a child. All the other brownies were Maid Marian or Robin Hood. I wanted to kill my mum!!

    5)I'd take Corrie Ten Boom - she's taught me about forgiveness. (hence the fact that I can now laugh about no.4 - grin!)

    have a great weekend

  2. Mine are up too!

    Songbird -- I guess the Non-Party begs the question -- what would MAKE it a party? Hmmmmm.... :)

  3. ) Favorite Halloween Candy - Trader Joe's dark chocolate bars

    2) Least Favorite Halloween Candy Pumpkin Peeps (yes, they now come in non-Easter shapes)

    3) Best Costume Ever
    Fairy Princess, 1982

    4) Worst Costume Ever
    Holy Ghost (sheet with holes) 1989

    5) Saint

  4. 1) Reese's Peanut Butter Cups -- or Godiva Dark Chocolate. (who would give that away on Halloween?? I'll be at your house)
    2) Those awful peanut butter taffy things in orange paper. Ucky.
    3) Liz Taylor -- seriously.
    4) a crown with a roll of toliet paper on a stick. I was a royal flush.
    5) Mother Teresa and St. Teresa. My namesakes. But with an "h"

  5. 1.I think they're called Sixlets... halloween is the only time I ever see them.

    2.anything dark chocolate

    3. Grim Reaper

    4. Punk Rocker

    5. Saint--Mom

  6. I believe he is saying NOT A PARTY because his birthday is Sunday and he doesn't want presents from his friends. :-)

  7. mmm...sixlets....I wish we had those in Egypt.

  8. funny my son didn't want a confirmation party for the same reason "Mum I don't want presents for this!"

  9. 1. Blow Pops (at least when i was a kid, which now as I am a diabetic, I'm re-thinking that one) ;)
    2. Those black and orange wax wrapped ones, not sure what they are called.
    3. I was a 'black eye pea' one year.
    4. I was a black eye pea one year (yeah, i just realized it was both the worst and the best)
    5. Saint: my friend Allison who died far too young.

  10. The peanut butter things in the orange and black wax paper are called "Peanut Butter Kisses" in case you didn't know. I like them, but they're not my favorite.

    Teri I'd send you some but I'm afraid I'd eat them all before they made it in the box.
