A Wuss is Me!

So, I'm going to a haunted house tonight with some friends and I'm an enormous wuss. Eeep! Any advice from fellow scaredy-cats out there?

Short of being drunk enough it's all just kind of funny? No, I never figured anything else out. :(

aww. You should check out Scare For A Cure, all the proceeds go to breast cancer treatment and research, and it's pretty fun. I'm going to be working in it Sunday and Tuesday nights, and maybe another..

If you're working Tuesday I may go.

How did you get involved with it?

I've been working with Haunted Houses since 1994 when I put in a bunch of time @ Richard Garriot's big one, and then 96-2005 I did Haunted Trails out @ Wild Basin, and then we all took off last year and now a bunch of us HT people are putting in time @ Scare for A Cure which is being run by The Defuser, Austin's own superhero. Pretty fun stuff, though I've been too busy to do too much this year other than do some advice giving last minute and do guiding some nights. It's a little different than I'm used to, but a cool deal and good cause, and totally worth my time to volunteer for.

I'll see if a buncha people wanna come out Tuesday, I think that's going to be a good night for it.

Yeah, I remember you telling me about that. :) I don;t know if I told you, but when I was a kid I was involved in a haunted house- i was a child about the be BBQed, a moving statue, and a vampire.

Yeah, I think you mentioned that. It's a lot of fun working in them, much better than going through them, though I wish I had more time to go through the other ones this year since they have so many this year.

Then people will think I'm part of the haunted house!

That is a glorious article! My favorite part is the Pilates instructor's boyfriend.

A familiarity with the german language adds extra value to the article, but will reading it increase my attractiveness to hot lesbians? I'm doubtful.

I'm not sure what to advise for dealing with haunted houses since most of the scares are of the jump-out-and-boo variety. Carry an axe?
