So someone asked me on my profile page what my username means, and I thought I'd start a thread where people can post what theirs mean. Many times theyre quite interesting!
Here in New York (the state...never been to the city) we have something called the Haunted Hayrides. I dunno if anyone else has one in their area...
anyways for the past three years my dad and I have worked there. Yes. Worked. We get paid to scare the pants off of complete strangers! Its the best job EVER. We have our own creepy characters there and we have the best time and work with the best people. Its a little like playing a real rough sport. Its one of those things where youre all dealing with a mutual difficult situation (its pretty much always cold, and often rainy. there are NO breaks...ever..you get a break when the night is over. You work outside in an apple orchard...in the rain and cold. you go to the bathroom in the orchard...no porta potties =P) so we have all become very close and familial. Its been a big part of my life, year round, and brought my dad and I closer to each other.
Plus its pretty cool, because your first year they generally figure out what youre good at. My dad can scare people by looking at them...he's a real creeper...and I do one of two things...if i'm working alongside my dad, I play this creepy little girl named Molly. I carry around a severed mannequin head which I've dubbed Alice...and I skip around behind him telling people that Alice is my dolly and asking if they wanna be my friend...if they say yes I tell them I'll go get my daddy and they can be a dolly like Alice...if they say no, I get real pouty and tell them if they say no I'm gonna go get my daddy, and then they HAVE to play with me. My dad dresses up as a real creepy surgeon carrying around a hatchet. Its a real hatchet...so people touch it to see if its real and it freaks them out hehe. The other thing I do when I'm haunting alone is scream. A lot. I'm the only person there that can scream something like 250 consecutive times in a night. I don't know why.
That was long. Hayrides is fun. What is your username about?
That's AWESOME. I'd love to do that! Here in Florida we just have the dumb theme park haunt things (Howl O Scream and Halloween Horror Nights)... I always wanted to work at Howl O Scream (I live right by Busch Gardens), but they only hire girls so they can dress up like skanks, and there's NO WAY!
When I asked my boyfriend if he's heard of Haunted Hayrides - he's from western NY (Victor) - his response was, "YES!!"
My username is just my first initial and part of my last name... pretty boring!
Lol, now he's telling me about wanting to go to a Haunted Hayride. :P I expect he's going to tell me all about these later.
haha yeah its right out in Williamson...not far from Victor at all. Holla at the Yankee!!!
at Hayrides the girls are just as scary if not scarier...you dress provocatively and you get a warning then an escort out. Some girls are even trained to deepen their yells and hunch and cover everything that makes them look female and nobody can really tell WHAT gender they are. I've done that, but Molly (my name is actually Danielle hehe) is very cute and girly in a creepy way. I'll post pics sometime of my dad and I...well Molly and her daddy
thats not boring! My old roommates name was Katie Fischer, we called her Katfisch haha
