    I'm getting over a nasty cold that I didn't have time to stop for... so I didn't! :shock: We're getting down to the nitty gritty at the haunt now. People are starting to make me nervous with their comments about my weight loss and the dark circles under my eyes. I just tell them I'm getting ready for the haunt. :twisted: When they tell me not to kill myself, I tell them, "Why not? Think how much better I'd be at haunting!" At any rate, I hope the rest of you are getting more rest than I am! Remind me again... Oh yeah, it's a passion, er... an obsession! :shock:

    Doing house tours, taking people through this house , being open every night of the year, year in, year out can be called an obsession, I guess?
    Staying as healthy as I can inspite of sick customers sneezing in my face and other germ spreading habits saw me washing my hands and gargling after each tour and this did seem to work (or was it just psycho- sematic?)
    The events here five years ago did have me obsessively trying to tell a long haunted history of the house to almost everyone who came here , fueled by the belief that if I told enough people as much of it as I could, that someday, someone would hear about these incidents and come here and maybe explain them as far as the wherefore and the whyfore of them happening.
    This has been sometimes very tough on my throat and energy level, telling a long, involved story for 45 minutes or more in just the first room of the tour.
    Of course along the the way, I decided that I could tell it seriously (which has scared some people, maybe they can tell I'm not making any of it up?)
    Or tell it humorously, which makes it easier for me to tell, since none of the actual events were humorous when they happened.
    Every once and awhile, I couldn't feel it coming and I would become overwhelmed with emotion as I was telling certain parts of the story , then I suppose some just thought I was "acting" or faking to ellict some certain response or feeling from them.
    Just last night one young man was trying to be complimentary to me after the tour , telling me I am the best actor that he has ever seen!
    I wasn't "acting".

    Kel, we're just about to start "he// week" here. I can see that there will probably not be much sleep for me in the upcoming week. That and little panic attacks. :shock:

    One of the guys at my day job (who's known me for years) mentioned bringing me a care package of Jolt Cola and pixie sticks.

    Jolt is still around out here. For a while they had "Kick" cola. It was supposedly better than Jolt for the caffiene, however, it tasted nasty!

    well i can tell you this....i think you are preachin to the choir...lol...it has been non stop for several weeks trying to get the orders out...days run together...4 hours of sleep...stress...phone calls, painting, pouring, molding, emails, construction, deadlines..you name it and we are doin it...rest assured though we are doing it for a reason...because without us as an industry where would the world be... and just think, in a few weeks we get to have a ton of fun scaring the wits outta people and seeing the genuine fear in peoples eyes...that is a great payoff...hope everyone is doin well and i hope everyones haunt rocks...

    Yeah, I'm feelin it too Kel...I'm feeling pretty drained between a hectic opening night last night, busy days at Creative Visions, late nights at Darkness, and a bout of bronchitis or something that's been making me cough my a$$ off the last few weeks (no the snake oil isn't helping either!...hehehe)...I think I'm going to go see the doctor next week once things slow down a little for me...

    Good luck out there everybody!
