I'm Giving You Fair Warning....

So, a few years ago at Christmas, my mother gave me this little book titled "How to Survive a Horror Movie." It's a fun little book written by Seth Grahame-Smith, the same guy who wrote "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies." I had not been thinking about the book recently until the other day when something very frightening happened to me....

I happened to see Kristen Kernats (KEEEEERRRRRRNNNNNAAAATTTTTSSSS!) had found me on twitter and mentioned Maine, which had me suddenly have a moment of vertigo as this particular passage of the HTSaHM popped into my head.... and all I have to say is thank God I remembered it... It might just save all our lives....

TEN PLACES NEVER, EVER, EVER TO GO UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES:

1. Rooms lit by a single hanging lightbulb
2. Rooms lit by nothing
3. Any graveyard that isn't Arlington National Cemetery
4. Summer camps whose annual counselor murder rate exceeds ten percent
5. MAINE
6."The Old _____________"
7. Hotels/Motels that aren't part of giant national chains
8. Upstairs
9. Downstairs
10. Any log cabin anywhere on the face of the earth

S0 there you have it. Since #5 is especially poignant, I think we all need to take a small breather here and consider our options.... I know I'm packing a knife and a few grenades for the trip. I suggest you all do likewise....

Button Love

I've made a button for us Sons to use on our various websites and blogs. Simply grab the code and paste it into a widget or gadget on the sidebar of your blog, and it will be a button that links back to the Sons of Turner Blog. Let me know if there's any problems with it, I'll do my best to fix it. :)

Maine 2011

Here's some snaps that I took in October 2010 when I first visited Maine to do a commission.


This isnt where we're staying.
Well here's the skinny.
The trip to Maine is set.
The house is booked.
The lobster is as good as in the pot. His days are numbered.

A new semester is upon us, although more than half of the Sons of Turner are now graduates!
I didnt even get to invite any new Sons this year as both trips are filled with existing members. Maybe next year I shall run three trips so that I can bring new people in.

I dont want the blog to become something for only those who are going on the trip this year, but by the same token I dont want the blog not to serve as an information point. So my apologies to anyone visiting the blog who might not be on this year's trip, and PLEASE keep visiting and contributing to the blog as much as possible. The last conversation which Dani started was really interesting.
