The Next Time Vampire...Pinterest

For me, first it was MySpace, spending hours building, tweaking and polishing my little corner on the web.  Then came Facebook and MySpace became sooooo two days ago and that sucked a great deal of time keeping up with who's eating a sandwich, bathing their dog or flaming on someone or something.  Then here's Blogger, which I'm still loving although I haven't had the time to post lately as I would have liked.

Now comes the worst one of all....the grandaddy of time vampires: Pinterest.

On the good/great side, I have found a bottomless pit of GREAT Hallowe'en ideas from tons of like-minded fiends and friends.  On the downside, I can't stop cruising the boards to actually DO any of the projects.  It's like gambling, the next board will have the perfect idea but in the meantime I see 3 more ideas I like and will start following these people and I of course HAVE to look at their boards too and if I see something on theirs I'll repin and see other boards so you see what I'm talking about!

Go ahead and make the dive...and say goodbye to your family, sunlight and social activities, you're going to be here for a looooooooong time!

Nonsensical Ramblings from Uncle Pat Robertson's site on Hallowe'en

Pat Robertson is like J. R. Ewing, you love to hate him.  Found this jewel and all I can say is that whoever wrote it is cray cray!  It would be downright disturbing if it wasn't so ludicrous.

“During Halloween, time-released curses are always loosed. A time-released curse is a period that has been set aside to release demonic activity and to ensnare souls in great measure … During this period demons are assigned against those who participate in the rituals and festivities. These demons are automatically drawn to the fetishes that open doors for them to come into the lives of human beings. For example, most of the candy sold during this season has been dedicated and prayed over by witches.
I do not buy candy during the Halloween season. Curses are sent through the tricks and treats of the innocent whether they get it by going door to door or by purchasing it from the local grocery store. The demons cannot tell the difference.Even the colors of Halloween (orange, brown and dark red) are dedicated. These colors are connected to the fall equinox, which is around the 20th or 21st of September each year and is sometimes called “Mabon.” During this season witches are celebrating the changing of the seasons from summer to fall. They give praise to the gods for the demonic harvest. They pray to the gods of the elements (air, fire, water and earth).
Mother earth is highly celebrated during the fall demonic harvest. Witches praise mother earth by bringing her fruits, nuts and herbs. Demons are loosed during these acts of worship. When nice church folk lay out their pumpkins on the church lawn, fill their baskets with nuts and herbs, and fire up their bonfires, the demons get busy. They have no respect for the church grounds. They respect only the sacrifice and do not care if it comes from believers or non-believers.

Halloween is much more than a holiday filled with fun and tricks or treats. It is a time for the gathering of evil that masquerades behind the fictitious characters of Dracula, werewolves, mummies and witches on brooms. The truth is that these demons that have been presented as scary cartoons actually exist. I have prayed for witches who are addicted to drinking blood and howling at the moon.While the lukewarm and ignorant think of these customs as “just harmless fun,” the vortexes of hell are releasing new assignments against souls. Witches take pride in laughing at the ignorance of natural men (those who ignore the spirit realm).
Decorating buildings with Halloween scenes, dressing up for parties, going door-to-door for candy,standing around bonfires and highlighting pumpkin patches are all acts rooted in entertaining familiar spirits. All these activities are demonic and have occult roots.The word “occult” means “secret.” The danger of Halloween is not in the scary things we see but in the secret, wicked, cruel activities that go on behind the scenes. These activities include:
* Sex with demons
* Orgies between animals and humans
* Animal and human sacrifices
* Sacrificing babies to shed innocent blood
* Rape and molestation of adults, children and babies
* Revel nights
* Conjuring of demons and casting of spells
* Release of “time-released” curses against the innocent and the ignorant.”

Wait a with demons, animal and human orgies, rape and molestation of adults?!  I have definitely been going to the wrong parties!   Have any of my pagan and witch friends out there been contacted by Mars, Hershey's, or Nestle to pray over and dedicate my Hallowe'en candy (although I definitely think that something unholy comes out of the cheap chocolate candy from Big Lots, bleeeh!).
