This creamy herbed goat cheese & tortellini salad is the perfect fall dinner or side salad!
I am addicted to horror movies. Is that weird? Now that it’s October, I can’t watch anything that doesn’t leave me sweating, jumping out of my seat or on edge for the rest of the day. I’ve always been a scary movie junkie, though. For as long as I can remember, they’ve been the genre of movies I’ve just drawn to. Maybe it’s because I watched them from a VERY young age.
My parents would invite my aunts and uncles over, drink too much wine and then put on a movie so us kids wouldn’t run around the house, break things and eat spoonfuls of sugar. One night? They chose The Shining. My cousin Liz and I weren’t horribly scared, but my older cousin Curt was in TEARS. He couldn’t sleep in his bedroom for weeks because he swore he saw the dead twin girls staring at him from his bathroom. Even since then though, my cousin Liz and I have been obsessed with watching scary movies. One night we watched all 3 of the Pet Cemetery movies, alone, in the basement of her 1800’s house.
I just love the thrill of being scared. This is also why I drag E to every possible haunted house in the area, force him to watch scary movies with me and suggest we go visit old insane asylums and stay the night. This is also why I watch ridiculously scary shows about people being haunted. Like I am right now. Which is probably why my heart is beating out of my chest and I just screamed because the dishwasher buzzed.
Anyone else a scary movie and haunted house junkie? Or am I just a little nuts?
