You Know You Are A Monster Kid If....
« on: January 16, 2008, 04:04:40 PM »
Then--

When visitors to your home would look into your room and say, "I'd be scared to sleep in there."

You saw the letters FM on a radio and you thought of Famous Monsters.

Your parents and teachers were concerned with your interest in "those" movies.

Now--

You politely correct anyone who refers to the Monster as "Frankenstien", explaining that Frankenstein was the Doctor's name.

You've gotten used to people saying, "You collect what?"

There's just not enough room to display everything.


Your turn to add something.
You knew the job was dangerous when you took it, Fred.

...you name your kids Boris and Bela.

...you have a room in your house devoted to monster toys.

...your whole house is devoted to monster toys!

Aren't you a little old for this type of stuff?
You collect what?
Is this your kids room?

You Know You Are A Monster Kid If....

You go into Best Buy to purchase a classic horror movie and no one has heard of it.

Actually if you go into Best Buy to purchase a dvd of any movie that wasn't made in the last 6 months they won't know what you're talking about. But they'll still all bug you wanting to know if you need "any help".


Why no I don't have any issues with Best Buy, why do you ask?  :P

...you start a blog or website that features classic monsters.

....more people know you by your online horror handle than know you by your real name.

...you'd prefer to see nude photos of Helen Chandler, Fay Wray, or Julie Adams to those of Paris Hilton or Lindsay Lohan.

...you know who Conrad Brooks is.

...you've been to an event where Conrad Brooks is a guest.

...you know what FJA stands for.

...you've heard any song by Bobby Pickett that wasn't "Monster Mash."

...you start a blog or website that features classic monsters.

...and it constantly threatens to take over your mind and soul...

Quote
...more people know you by your online horror handle than know you by your real name.


...but very few people spell your monster moniker correctly, or encourage your long-winded posts by responding...

Quote
...you'd prefer to see nude photos of Helen Chandler, Fay Wray, or Julie Adams to those of Paris Hilton or Lindsay Lohan.

...but you can't remember what to do with them anymore...

Quote
...you know who Conrad Brooks is.

...you've received dozens of phone calls from Conrad Brooks and still haven't installed caller ID...

Quote
.......you've been to an event where Conrad Brooks is a guest.

...you've produced things for Conrad Brooks to sell at his table,
and manned it for him while he wandered around for hours...

Quote
.......you know what FJA stands for.

...and have attempted to compile a list of all his other professional and amateur pseudonyms...

Quote
.......you've heard any song by Bobby Pickett that wasn't "Monster Mash."

...you own both the original single (in the pictorial sleeve) and two different LP releases of Bobby Pickett's "Monster Mash," and produced his memorial graphic for the old UMA home page.

 You Know You Are A Monster Kid If ....

... you spend thousands of $ to put up a Toy Display for just 2 days viewing time.

... your online friend wears a cape and top hat, has 6" long nails, and berates you in public.

... your wife asks to see your 8" jiggler and you pull out an AHI Creature jiggler.

... your online friends call you a General and the rest of the world calls you Terry.

... your friends check their stock quotes online and you check the most recent posts at UMA.

You know you're a Monster Kid if...

...you refer to things as being the color "Frankenstein Green"
...your kid by age three identifies all the monsters (including "Hunchback of Outer Space")
...in Mass you use that little pencil stub to draw monsters on the bulletin then proudly show your wife and kids
...you still look at vending machines in entry ways hoping to see rubber spiders
...you wear your Glenn Strange Frankenstein flannels in public
...your family rolls their eyes so much you put artwork on the ceiling!

I did that just two hours ago!  No rubber spiders.  Darn.  Why do they even bother with vending machines anymore if they're not going to put anything cool in them?
