who you gonna call?

okay.  now i'm really starting to worry a little.  i thought the ringtone incident was comical, and the washing machine thing spooked me for a second but didn't rattle my cage too much, but last night the hall light would not turn off.  i toggled the switch on and off several times but to no avail.  i know i said i love halloween, but i don't know if i'm on board with having uninvited guests around my pad for the holiday, if you smell what i'm steppin' in.

so i decided to eat my feelings to douse my nerves with food.  i made cookies.  some of my favorites.  try these... you won't regret:

PUMPKIN CHOCOLATE CHIPPERS
1 spice cake mix (just the dry mix, don't prepare)
1 can of pumpkin (15 oz size)
1 bag of chocolate chips
mix.  350 degrees.  15 minutes-ish depending on your altitude.  snarf.

Creepy.....
Isn't this the best recipe?! I've been making them for a while & just found out that they're a Weight Watcher favorite, so double nice!

pumpkin, spice cake mix, i've forgotten what these taste like. i don't do well with spooky things. i'd be eating my way through a box of vanilla wafers by now. so i realized after you left (*sniff, sniff*), i never burned some of my music for you. email me your address and i'll have bruce send you cds when he goes to orlando next week. we miss you guys. feeling mopey just thinking about it... :( might have to go find myself of a box of vanilla wafers to wallow in...

oh, i smell what you're steppin' in. the ringtone...saWEET...weird it changed by itself, but overall it works. the washing machine is borderline spooky edging toward supernatural, but then the hall light situ...hells bells...call the fire department. this one's out of control!!! try not to make any sudden movements just in case.

Remember when I was a wedding planner working on 23rd and Washington? Well that building was haunted and I worked there by myself all the time. He (the ghost) always did weird stuff until I got really mad one day and yelled at him to stop and he did. I never had a problem after that....WEIRD!!

Sounds like your poltergiest has hit my parents place too. The upstairs lights are all connected on the same line. The garage freezer shorted out the line and so it's always doing funny things like that. Beats me about the dryer and cell phone though. Good luck.

mmm. i like those cookies. very festive. very tasty. and if i remember correctly, relatively low fat yes? which means you can eat the entire batch all by yourself. which i think i did at your house. i might just have to find something to eat my feelings about. that really is kinda freaky. i really don't do well with stuff like that.

Josh n Amanda said...

Not gonna lie...that is pretty freaky! Good luck...

You shared this recipe with me whilst we were in DC (maybe while you were wearing your snow beast costume) and I have been blessed ever since!

old me.
