List of Haunted House in the Oak Park, IL area

I saw an article about Haunted Houses in the area listed on WGN 9’s website. I, of course loved the 13th floor when I went there years ago. I (and Sarah) basically hung off of some dude who was going through the Haunted house with his girl. It scared the shit out of me, now being older and wiser I think I can go back this year. If you want to get into the Halloween spirit it is a very cool way to do it.

I posted the list that WGN 9 had on their website down below in case you do not want to go to the link. But go to the link anyway you lazy bastard its how these people get paid!

Here is the link where you can type in the name of the Haunted house and find it in the area from WGN 9’s website:

No big Halloween plans… thank God!

Thank God the nieces are teenagers do this year’s Halloween is just me myself and I. It is really hard to dumb down or make kid friendly Halloween crap. Just the thought of it gives me a headache. The ultra campiness of it all makes me feel dirty because I know a lot of it is very much like the stuff Oak Park, il espouses on annual basis for this time of year.

To the point no one really knows how to be scary and give these little kids a fright. Now this year I can get a costume not worry about entertainment, food, drinks or decorations and go out and cause havoc. But obviously not in oak park, il anyone in this burb is lucky to be wake past 8pm.

Yawnnnnnn boring!

I also found for you pumpkin carving mother fucker’s stencils for each of your zodiac signs.

Just have a pinterest account and a printer to get the stencils for these designs, plus the usual pumpkin carving equipment and viola!

Halloween projects for the kids

So to keep my niece and nephew busy this Halloween (I am not sure if the older niece would partake) I found some more crafty stuff to have them do while they are in my presence so that I am not running the streets with two kids not my own! The great thing was that I got it from an email by World Market (yeah, I am one of those a-holes!).

This is the original article link right here:

https://www.worldmarket.com/blog/tag/kids-halloween/?utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=wk29_halloweenshop&utm_source=wmblog&CAMP=211701&RRID=9007223

However, to make it more savor and easier to pick from I divided the projects down from the original article to their separate links to make it easier to read and print off the instructions at work, because that is what we are all going to do anyway! Hopefully you and the kids you have to entertain find something enjoyable to do and keep them off streets and occupied after a long day of trick or treating.

These are the individual project links with the descriptions as headings:

Halloween Idea #416 for Oak Park, Il “fun”

I found another cool thing for Halloween parties this is a Blood Orange cocktail great for ADULT parties (I had to put that disclaimer in there) drinks a plenty bitches! This is a great way to disguise the adult drinks from the kids you might have at your Halloween party and just strange enough to deterring that one punk ass kid from sneaking around trying get a sip.

Here is the link:

https://www.worldmarket.com/blog/recipe/blood-orange-cocktail-recipe/

I also found another list (on Imgur IKR?) of great horror films so if you are throwing a party on Halloween or just staying in, this list is great for entertainment ideas for that night. Most of these movies you should already know but a refresh is always good especially if you are trying to put a party and the entertainment together at the last minute.

To create that fog effect as simply as possible I found directions online through a company in the area that creates dry ice, just not that it is very crazy ass to handle, upon that you must store it properly because dry ice is just carbon dioxide gas frozen. Therefore, if you like to live and breathe storage of the product must be taken seriously if I do go through the dry ice/fog idea I will probably store it on the back porch of the apartment.
