Again, scary is subjective – people who enjoy faster-paced horror might find this gradually unfolding story to be too slow for a good scare. But it did do a pretty good job capturing the atmosphere of the book it was taken from, which is to be expected since the author, Ray Bradbury, also wrote the script. Read More
No, this is not the next chapter of A World Full of Monsters – it’s the next installment in the Finders Keepers series. Picking up just over a year after “Family Business” left off, Island Home features Monster Island getting a visitor who really isn’t supposed to be there uninvited. I’ll give you three guesses who that is.
And no, Jerry is NOT Godzilla. Even if a certain worm guy did get mentioned. 😉
If you are new to the series, you’ll probably want to read the preceding one, The HR Stories, to know who some of these people are and what’s been going on before you dive into Finders Keepers. This AU has gotten kind of…complicated.
This week onThe Happy Page: A cool Halloween yard prop you can build in two days. With minimal supplies that aren’t very expensive. Oh, and you’ll be able to store it and use it again next year, too!
A word about using expanding foam: This is for the people who’ve never used it, because people who’ve used it before have probably learned at least some of this the hard way. It’s designed to be used to fill cracks and gaps on things like houses, so it sticks to EVERYTHING and on most things it’s going to be difficult if not impossible to get off – wet or dry. So protect your work surface, protect your hands and your clothes, tie back your hair, lock up your pets and children. Oh, and once you’ve cracked open that can…well, in theory you can clean the nozzle out with acetone or something, in practice not so much. So buy the regular-sized can, not the extra-tall one, unless you’re planning to make a bigger prop/more than one prop and think you’ll need the extra foam. There are a TON of things you can make with expanding foam…or you can, you know, fill cracks and gaps with it. 😉
The Happy Page is updated every Sunday with a video that is cute or yummy or funny or inspiring or something. Content is always relatively cheery, but not guaranteed to be safe for work – slack at your own risk!
