@InternetEh Exactly. I will concede that a ghost could probably manipulate someone electrically or telekinetically into bustin' one, but a human can't do the same to/for a ghost.
@InternetEh Paperback Paradise had it right with "Skeletons Fucked Up My Naked Husband" and the same reasoning can apply to ghosts

Daily Dracula, October 2; expectations about stories, food, Victorian hygiene
The Aerated Bread Company's hygienic method of making bread (with the claim it contains more gluten than yeast bread!) and their chain of bakeries/teahouses definitely fits in with what I expect to hear about Victorian food, ideas of hygiene/health, and public spaces. It's just that the characters of my youth were so constrained, they would never be near such a place.
Daily Dracula, October 2; expectations about stories, childhood
Since girls' fiction set in the 19th century is either focused on the home or frontier/rural self reliance, that was my early experience with thinking about the 1800s. Even though I know much better now, reading about cities gives me a reflexive reaction at my core: Wait a sec, Jonathan Harker is taking tea at a chain restaurant?
Daily Dracula, October 1, relationship themes
Two things about Bram Stoker:
- his wife was known as the most beautiful woman in Ireland
- he packed up his family to go to London to be a business manager for an actor he admired
Two relationship themes in Dracula:
- if you don't pay attention to your girl, someone else will
- you can have a healthy relationship with a woman or you can have homoerotic Scooby Doo adventures with your boys that you keep hidden from her, you can't have both

@checkervest They look way better than this year's Pillsbury jack o'lantern cookies! (And don't even get me started on Count Chocula, they massacred my boy.)
@cameron I thought this was going to be a Charlie Brown ornament for some reason (Linus explaining the angel, maybe?)
Anyway, peanuts! Are they still ok to eat, or have you developed an anaphylactic reaction to them since the last time you ate them? Mystery!
All the scantily costumed babes thinking they might get the hot Halloween they always wanted, but at what cost?
