Since we've got a boys theme going this week, I'll sign off with a report from my school visit to Boston College High School. It's an all-boys private school here in Boston and it's very prestigious. I spoke to two groups: one was the middle school book club where we talked about the GHOST HUNTRESS series and the paranormal and the second was the senior AP writing class where we talked about the publishing world. Great kids and a fabulous time with them. Here I am with a few students and the amazing librarian, Tia Esposito, who brought me in. I just loved visiting!

So, Halloween night, my sweetie and I went to see PARANORMAL ACTIVITY, which I think was very well done. So funny, all last week leading up to Halloween, I had a ton of radio interviews and every single one of them asked me what I thought of the movie. I guess as a ghost huntress myself, I have some credibility when it comes to things like that, eh? Well, I thought the movie was brilliant. Filmed for $11,000, no crew, a cast of a handful, very suspenseful and accurate towards some of the tools actual investigators use. I thought the special effects were realistic and well done, but I wanted to smack Micah. He never listened to Katie. He kept dabbling in something he had no business dabbling in. And he brought in a Ouija board into the way.

Well, I won't spoil the plot if you haven't seen it. I highly recommend the movie.

Have you seen it yet? What did you think? Did it scare the patookie out of you? LOL!!

I'm too much of a wimp to see the movie but I saw both actors on Jay Leno last night and they were both really funny!

My sons want to see the movie, and that'll be "close enough" for me. Like Steph, I'm a wimp!

I really love this movie! schizophrenia is a lot more than just hearing voices. For me, the paranormal IS normal. For me, it's reality.

Good luck.

For me is that movie very interesting but I don't know whether I would have enough courage to see it. I watched some horror movies during the Halloween and I didn't feel so well after. I think that it requires special mood to watch such kind of movie.

That looks too scary for me, Marley. Look how cute you are in that library!
