All are curtosy of!


Two dormmates in college were in the same science class. The teacher had just reminded them about the midterm the next day when one dormmate — let's call her Juli — got asked to this big bash by the hottest guy in school. The other dormmate, Meg, had pretty much no interest in going and, being a diligent student, she took notes on what the midterm was about. After the entire period of flirting with her date, Juli was totally unprepared for her test, while Meg was completely prepared for a major study date with her books.

At the end of the day, Juli spent hours getting ready for the party while Meg started studying. Juli tried to get Meg to go, but she was insistent that she would study and pass the test. The girls were rather close and Juli didn't like leaving Meg alone to be bored while she was out having a blast. Juli finally gave up, using the excuse that she would cram in homeroom the next day.

Juli went to the party and had the time of her life with her date. She headed back to the dorm around 2 a.m. and decided not to wake Meg. She went to bed nervous about the midterm and decided she would wake up early to ask Meg for help.

She woke up and went to wake Meg. Meg was lying on her stomach, apparently sound asleep. Juli rolled Meg over to reveal Meg's terrified face. Juli, concerned, turned on the desk lamp. Meg's study stuff was still open and had blood all over it. Meg had been slaughtered. Juli, in horror, fell to the floor and looked up to see, written on the wall in Meg's blood: "Aren't you glad you didn't turn on the lights!"


A girl and her boyfriend are making out in his car. They had parked in the woods so no one would see them. When they were done, the boy got out to pee and the girl waited for him in the safety of the car.

After waiting five minutes, the girl got out of the car to look for her boyfriend. Suddenly, she sees a man in the shadows. Scared, she gets back in the car to drive away, when she hears a very faint squeak... squeak... squeak...

This continued a few seconds until the girl decided she had no choice but to drive off. She hit the gas as hard as possible but couldn't go anywhere, because someone had tied a rope from the bumper of the car to a nearby tree.

Well, the girl slams on the gas again and then hears a loud scream. She gets out of the car and realizes that her boyfriend is hanging from the tree. The squeaky noises were his shoes slightly scraping across the top of the car!!!


A teenage girl is babysitting one evening. The children have been put to bed and the babysitter is in the living room watching TV. Just then, the phone rings. When she answers it, she hears a man laughing (alternatively there is either silence, or heavy breathing) on the other end. He asks her in a gravely voice to "check the children". When she asks who he is, he hangs up. Rather than checking on the children, the teenager decides to ignore the call. The stranger then calls back several times throughout the evening, demanding to know "Why haven't you checked the children?!", each time with increasing anger. The babysitter becomes frightened and calls the operator. She asks him to trace the call. When the stranger calls back again, the babysitter manages to keep him talking for several minutes, in order to trace the call, but when she asks who he is again, he again hangs up. Then, the phone rings again. This time it's the operator. He orders the babysitter to get out of the house, as the calls are coming from the other telephone line inside the house. The operator tells her the police are already on their way (in some versions, the babysitter calls the police herself). As the terrified babysitter races toward the door, she hears, and then sees, a shadowy figure clumping down the stairs. She runs from the house in hysterics into the arms of the awaiting police. They kill (or in some versions, arrest) a madman wielding a bloody butcher knife. The children are all dead, silently hacked to pieces by the madman, who had gotten into the house through an upstairs window, murdering the children as they slept in their beds. He was waiting for the babysitter to come upstairs, as he intended her to be his next victim.


A teenage boy drove his date to a dark and deserted Lovers' Lane for a make-out session. After turning on the radio for mood music, he leaned over and began kissing the girl.

A short while later, the music suddenly stopped and an announcer's voice came on, warning in an urgent tone that a convicted murderer had just escaped from the state insane asylum — which happened to be located not far from Lovers' Lane — and that anyone who noticed a strange man lurking about with a hook in place of his right hand should immediately report his whereabouts to the police.

The girl became frightened and asked to be taken home. The boy, feeling bold, locked all the doors instead and, assuring his date they would be safe, attempted to kiss her again. She became frantic and pushed him away, insisting that they leave. Relenting, the boy peevishly jerked the car into gear and spun its wheels as he pulled out of the parking space.

When they arrived at the girl's house she got out of the car, and, reaching to close the door, began to scream uncontrollably. The boy ran to her side to see what was wrong and there, dangling from the door handle, was a bloody hook.


A young lady is alone in her apartment. She goes to bed with her dog on the floor beside her. In the middle of the night, she is woken up by a strange sound. She is alarmed, but reaches down to the dog, who licks her hand. She is reassured and goes back to sleep. In the morning, she finds the dog hung in the shower. Where the dog slept, she picks up a note which reads "Humans can lick, too."


One night a woman went out for drinks with her girlfriends. She left the bar fairly late at night, got in her car and onto the deserted highway. She noticed a lone pair of headlights in her rear-view mirror, approaching at a pace just slightly quicker than hers. As the car pulled up behind her she glanced and saw the turn signal on — the car was going to pass — when suddenly it swerved back behind her, pulled up dangerously close to her tailgate and the brights flashed.

Now she was getting nervous. The lights dimmed for a moment and then the brights came back on and the car behind her surged forward. The frightened woman struggled to keep her eyes on the road and fought the urge to look at the car behind her. Finally, her exit approached but the car continued to follow, flashing the brights periodically.

Through every stoplight and turn, it followed her until she pulled into her driveway. She figured her only hope was to make a mad dash into the house and call the police. As she flew from the car, so did the driver of the car behind her — and he screamed, "Lock the door and call the police! Call 911!"

When the police arrived the horrible truth was finally revealed to the woman. The man in the car had been trying to save her. As he pulled up behind her and his headlights illuminated her car, he saw the silhouette of a man with a butcher knife rising up from the back seat to stab her, so he flashed his brights and the figure crouched back down.

AAAAHHH the glorious reality of my life this past week! LOL

John and I are much better, and Angie is good to go to school today .. but Alexa .. oh my poor Alexa .. is really gettin her arse kicked by this bug! While she is more energetic, she crashes quickly and hard. Her cough is still nasty, but no fever, and she is eating and taking in fluids. Still not gonna send her to school to spread that around so I am asking for her homework to be sent home so she can get caught up! These bugs seem to be getting worse and worse throughout the years .. so scary!

So the weekend was eventful regardless of the fact that we were down and out for most of the week! Saturday started by taking Steph's canvas class at The Scrapbox. GORGEOUS! Katie decided to surprise us by joining us for the afternoon!

John dropped the kids of at my brothers for the night and we went out on a date. A much needed date let me tell you! We ended up going to Lonestar for dinner, then grabbed a Starbucks (pumpkin spice latte of course), and went for a nice drive around the city! Once we got home, we had a few wobblies and curled up on the couch and enjoyed Twilight, and Saw V. Both are awesome! I won't go into details on what happened next cuz this is a PG blog .. but let me tell you ... WOW WOW WOW! LMAO!

Yesturday we slept in, and went to pick up the kids. Had a small visit with my brother and his fiance Karine and their kids, and then went to DeSerres so I could pick up a couple of much needed things (insert roll eyes cuz you all know that I NEED IT!) ... LOL We then drove to Barrhaven and caught "Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs" 3D. What an awesome movie! The girls giggled and it was so warming to see them sitting between John and I, with their little popcorn combo on their laps, and the glasses on their faces... it was so much fun!

We then went to Kelsey's for some apps and dessert, and home for the night! It was wonderful.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY HUNKY HUBBY! I am so happy that we celebrated as a family and had such a fun time doing it. The girls and I are going to bake a cake and make him a nice meal on Wednesday and then we are heading to my parents place this weekend for Halloween and Birthday celebrations (John's, my niece Paige, and my brother's).

All and all a great weekend, and I am hoping that this week I can get caught up on some e-mails and some blog reading .. oh ya and HOUSEWORK! BLAH! LOL

I have to admit this ... I ADORE JENNI BOISVERT! For those of you that have no clue who I am talking about then please let me introduce you to her!

I first "met"Jenni at Bad Girls a couple years. She was a member at first and soon after that was asked to join the DT there for obvious reasons .. her work is CRAZY INSANE TALENT! She is a digital goddess IMHO as well and one of the best photographers out there, but when it comes to her creative projects .. she blows my mind!

I just watched this tutorial of this canvas she made for Shimmerz (she is a proud DT member there), and I am loving it! Do yourselves a favour and have a look at it here!

If you are into Graphic 45 aswell ..... then Jenni is your girl! WINK!

I adore you girl .. and thank you for always being an inspiration to me ... I always feel like getting my creative on after I visit your blog and your DT sites! Hugs and LUV YA!

Today will be a great creative day! I start my Alter This class over at My Creative Classroom. I am really looking forward to getting my hands dirty and learning some new things .. hopefully this will give some new inspiration as I haven't been super pleased with all I have been creating lately. I am lucky to have my friend Dorrie join me on this adventure! It'll give us a chance to hang out and get to know each other better!

So I haven't posted my LOAD the past couple of days, and have already told Katie I owe her a kit (our little side bet), little did she know she was getting one anyways ... BAHAHAHAHAHA! I have to say that to make myself feel better and justify my falling off the wagon! LMAO Is it wrong that I am sending her fall off the wagon too vibes??? LMAO Well Katieroo .. atleast we'll always have brutal truth! HEEHEE

A shout out to DORRIE!

Thinking of you today babycakes .. a new you! Hugs and kisses!

Here is a little TEEHEE for ya!


Thursday, October 1, 2009

Yes I am BACK! LOL

Okay first things first .... Laurie be sure to take deep breaths cuz if you hyperventilate cuz I actually blogged, I'd feel really bad! HEEHEE!

So ... how are ya all? LOL It's been a busy time in the Tops house .. and I am certainly not gonna blog all about it in one sitting .. so I will pick an event, and add a LO .. and then hopefully that'll keep my blog mojo rolling!

So let's see ... hhhmmm OH YA APPLE PICKING!

So a few weeks ago, when it was much much warmer, we went to the orchard in Orleans and indulged in what I thought would of been a full afternoon of fun. Well the full planned afternoon actually took 20 minutes ... BAHAHAHA! But it was a fun filled 20 minutes!

So my girls go rip roaring down the hill trying to find the perfect tree with some luscious mac apples... well we had to go quite a ways down as all the apples in the trees near the entrance had been raped and pillaged, and looked like they had seen a better day or two .. but the trek down the hill was so worth it!

Here are many shots of our fun filled 20 minutes! LOL

So there it is .. 31 pounds and 23 bucks later! LOL I have since made 8 pies, but I have to make apple sauce yet, and apple muffins for the freezer! Oh and I can't forget candy apples! LOL

On the scrapping front ... I have made a few pages that I need to upload! But today I embark on a new adventure with my fellow scrappers, Barb, Nat, Dorrie, Katie and Sonya! I am participating in LOAD (Layout A Day) for the month of October. That means 31 LO's in 31 days ... it's crazy to think that I will even come close, but this SAHM stuff leaves me with 3 whole hours of afternoon time to myself every weekday ... so I think I just may have a chance .. truth be told .. if I fall off the wagon who gives a shit cuz it'll be far more scrapping than I would likely have gotten done! LOL Katie and I also have this strange competition thing between us .. so GIRL IT IS SO ON! LMAO

Anyways here is my 01 Oct entry! This was a pic taken of me on my honeymoon as were leaving Punta Cana in 2001! I got to use some of the Bo Bunny I had in my stash and some of the new Prima flowers and stud centers.


I also wanted to give a shout out to my girls DORRIE and KATIE! They just found out that they have made The Paper Passion DT team. These girls are super talented and I know they are gonna add some spice to their projects and inspire a whole wack of scrappers ... INCLUDING ME! WTG Ladies ... kick some arse, I'll be over there soon to lend my support and take your challenges! MMMMMMMMMMWWWWWAAAAAA!

This weekend I am heading to my mom and dad's! Mom and I are are signed up for a two day crop over at the Scrapbox .. I am looking forward to spending some scrappy time with her .. it's been a while since we have been creative together! Then on Saturday my hunky hubby is bringing our girls there and Sunday we celebrate my dad's (AKA PAPA) 60th Birthday! I see football and chili and lots of fun with my brother and his family too! All around it's gonna be a blast!

So good to be back .. wish me luck on my adventures ...! WINK!
