Use Me and Abuse Me Day – Haunted Halloween Edition

Haunted Halloween UMAAD

Welcome to another Use Me and Abuse Me Day. This is a very special virtual party. I’m dressed in my Morticia Addams costume. Cousin It and Thing will be helping out. 

Bring ONE link from a blog post (the spookier the better or anything else your trembling heart desires), and leave it in the comment section. Then the party will begin! Click on a few links and say “bla, bla, I want to suck your blood, I mean, “Susie sent me.” They should shriek click back to your place. Dracula is expecting you.

The candles are lit, Lurch is playing the organ, Igor is answering the door, and the witches brew is packing an extra punch. Help yourself to the finger food. I know. They look like real fingers…

Pasting two links in my comment section will send you to my crypt spam filter. I hate when I have to stop dancing to pull screaming guests from the abyss. It’s so embarrassing.

The more links you click on, the more people you’ll meet. Some may fall under your spell and subscribe to your blog.

Like last time, this wild party will become a rager. Keep checking back through the weekend to see who haunts stops by!

Have fun and don’t forget to dance! Click HERE, then stand up and shake your bones…

Spread the word on Twitter and Facebook! More walking dead people will show up at your place!

  1. I have my witch’s hat on! And it’s a pretty fancy one. Need pictures, right? Erm… no link this time, but I promise to get better :) Just wanted to stop by and say “hi” ;)

  3. I haven’t been to one of Susie’s parties for awhile… haven’t had a chance to write anything either. I can’t remember writing anything spooky, I must have, so I’m putting on a post I didn’t even write… I enlisted my 12 year old granddaughter to pen a piece for my blog… Happy Halloween, Susie!

  4. Hi Susie, I mean Morticia! I’m a sucker for ‘bad’ (as in ‘good’) horror movies. My mum had an actress friend who starred alongside Christopher Lee in a Brit horror movie back around 1970, which was kind of cool. (And now Lee, at 91, is the world’s oldest heavy metaller, which is even cooler…)

    No spooky links alas… that’s waiting on my birthday (Halloween!) – but here’s a movie-related one:

  5. Hey Colorado,
    You is one sexy Morticia. I’m gonna link a post I wrote up for the occasion. But I must apologize in advance for not sticking around to mingle. I am currently watching “The Exorcist”, which is a thing I have not done in almost thirty years time, for good reason. I’m sticking to Twitter for the rest of the night in hopes of finding some company, because Linda Blair is proving to be most unpleasant. Again.
    I will get back here tomorrow and mingle up. Much love and peace, mama.

Sorry I spilled that beer on the tablecloth. If you dye it yellow you could use it again next party. Take care and God bless…., and may the sun never set on your dreams.

  14. Hi Susan,
    I just remembered I might not be able to post any links here on Halloween itself so please allow me to indulge myself and divulge my links today.

    Both of these links are Halloween related and are UNEDITED SNIPPETS from my first YA Paranormal/Time Travel/First Kiss romance novel whose title “I Kissed a Ghost” is Halloween theme related as well.

    In the first snippet, Mary has returned with George [the ghost in the house she lives in] from another trip to the past of a hundred years ago where she learned how children celebrated Halloween then, which included what games they played. However, before they came back to the present they went to his uncle’s house where Mary learned how to carve a real pumpkin, and had carved one herself. They then back to her house which is over a hundred years old, left the jack-o-lantern she had carved outside the front door, and went to her room so she could come back to the present. And once back, Mary went downstairs to the kitchen where:

    http://mypennameonly.wordpress.com/2012/05/04/ghost-whispers-11-may-4-2012/

    In the second snippet, Mary has the Halloween party she planned with her parents where her father had set up the room so things would make it appear as if the house was indeed haunted. Things include sounds of something rolling across the floor, lights going on/off by themselves, and shades moving up/down on their own. Naturally, everyone she’d invited became somewhat scared, especially with George helping a little, and actually thought her house was indeed haunted. After Mary thought her friends had enough, she explained how everything had been done, and told them their belief that her house is haunted is a lie. [Her friends kept teasing Mary about her house being haunted which is why they never wanted to come inside to play]

    However, George had overheard Mary’s friends talking about pretending to be scared if things started to happen seemingly on their own. And even though he’d promised Mary not to do anything which might scare her friends he does it anyway.

    http://mypennameonly.wordpress.com/2012/03/25/ghostly-whisper-5-march-14-2012/

    Hope these two snippets has put everyone in the mood for Halloween. There are several more snippets available on my blog under the category of “GHOSTLY WHISPERS”, some of which also involve Mary’s ghost, George. Would love to hear everyone’s comments.

  29. Hey, Suzie–Lovely Party!
    THis is a post I wrote in response to a Horror Flash Fiction contest on Chuck Wendig’s blog, Terrible Minds. Thought y’all might enjoy it.

    http://dontreadbooks.com/2013/10/11/a-crash-course-in-story-structure-flash-fiction-horror-challenge/

    And here’s my entry for his contest:
    “When they go hunting, I hide.
    Usually they pass me by but today one of them stops—his legs towering over me, exceeded in size only by his hunger—listening, watching… hunting, and I hold my breath, wedging myself deeper into the crevice of grass and earth, certain he knows I am here, certain his eyes—and teeth—will soon fall upon me.
    Like a flash, I strike—unblinking I watch his body twist with the burning hurt, watch his eyes go red with blood as the look down and finally find me, watch his mind break as my venom reaches his brain, swirling into its core and curdling its flesh—and when it is over I slither, fast and faster away… before the others come.”
