Verrry scaaaaary!

Ken should be home in about an hour, and we'll head out to see Monsieur Rove. I hope the dinner is decent--I'm hungry! I'm all ready to go, just need to put my pants on. It's only the polite thing to do--I wasn't raised in a barn, you know! <grin>
Heavens to Murgatroid, it's been a quiet day, both at Nutwood and in J-Land. TOO quiet. I think you're all up to something! In fact, our friend Pat over at Rose's Rambling was up to some hijinx this morning, when she wrote a poem for me and gave me a new nickname: Hi, I'm "Spooky," nice to meet you all! Ha ha! Based on my love of horror movies (Pat, you should meet my oldest sister--I think she's more of a nut than I am!), she wrote a clever poem called "Boxes" and came up with my new nickname. Of course, I kind of like it, and I know she knew I would! Of course, I thought of the Santana song "Spooky." Can you believe I couldn't find it on YouTube--just cover versions? No video for you today, just lyrics!

In the cool of the evening
when ev'rything is gettin' kind of groovy,
I call you up and ask you if you want to go
and meet and see a movie.

First you say no, you've got some plans for the night,
And then you stop, and say, "All right."
Love is kinda crazy with a spooky little girl like you.

You always keep me guessin', I never seem to know
what you are thinkin'.
And if a fella looks at you, it's for sure
your little eye will be a-winkin'.

I get confused, 'cause I don't know where I stand,
And then you smile, and hold my hand.

Love is kinda crazy
with a spooky little girl like you. Spooky!

If you decide someday to stop this little game
that you are playin',

I'm gonna tell you all what my heart's been a-dyin' to be sayin'.
Just like a ghost,
you've been a-hauntin' my dreams,
So I'll propose... on Halloween.

Love is kinda crazy
with a spooky little girl like you. Spooky!

Hey Spooky,

I didn't even know Santana DID this one, the only Spooky I ever heard was by Dennis Yost..... darn, and my flashplayer isn't working right now.  I LOVE SANTANA!!!!!!!!!

hey beth....

i didn't know santana did a version of "spooky."  i think the one that is the most popular was done by the classics IV.

that's a great song, no matter who did it!

That is a great song...Spooky, sounds good to me.  I hope the dinner goes well and you remembered to put your pants on.  I've been known to walk out without pants on so it can happen ;)

Is that just a polite way of saying you scare the hell out of her?
I mean I havn't been reading your journals very long, and I'm afraid if I stop commenting you will sick some evil mice on me or something! Ha Ha!
Now to be a little more serious, that is a good song. I own most of his albums, and that is one of my favorites. I wish I would have read this entry a little earlier. Because a earlier this evening I took a nap, and woke up and needed some things from the store. I noticed people were staring at me, it's a long story. So let me just say the cop didn't have to frisk me to see if I was conceiling anything. I think I learned a valuble lesson, never forget to put some pants on!  Just kidding!
