Alisha's Haunted House Review

I am a wimp and have been boycotting Haunted house for years (although I used to love them) but as many of you know I am ridden with FEAR! Thanks Mom. But this year I said to hell with!
We started with the Carnival of Terror in Taylorsville, Its a bit geto, but just what I need to get back in the game. And its a bragging, For a group of 6 its only $35
We then immediately moved on the Biggest and the Best (Allegedly) Nightmare on 13th. The expensive cattle herd I like to call it. $30 bucks for the fast pass and still you have to wait, but the special effects are cool. The girls behind us, NOT Cool!
The next week we deiced Castle of Chaos. This we had a free pass for (Thanks to Janet and Beans & Brews) but it would have cost us $27 (this is without the "BLOODFEST!" This is an add on of 3$. with "BLOODFEST" they give you a yellow rain poncho and splash you with fake blood and the actors can touch you (you have to sign a waver to participate, so count me out!) I did enjoy it, but would not pay $27 in the future to go.
...we were pumped and need more... but we have done it all in SLC, so what to do?
and as always the answerer is Tooele. ASYLUM 49 $13 for a regular pass $16 for Fast Pass TAKE THE FAST PASS!!! we did not and waited for about 40 people before for 1 hour... the wait was worth it. Best Haunted House EVER! Loved it. so much fun. The love it Back Baby!

Media Darling

I finally get some press, not that I want or need it unlike my Media Whore Husband who thrives on it. The SLC Trib called my office early this week and asked me a few questions (this happens around Halloween and Memorial day, but never have I been quoted. Unfortunately it has to do with sports which is low on my list of things to talk about. but still... I am in fact a media darling. But I would like to clarify that I would never say Tombstone!
They are in fact Monuments or Memorials.

Utah football: A boot hill for Rice-Eccles
Ute football: Whittingham looks to bury opponents
Coach wants graveyard for BCS teams Utes beat
By Lya Wodraska The Salt Lake Tribune

Beating teams from Bowl Championship Series conferences is no longer good enough for Utah coach Kyle Whittingham. Now he wants to bury them, too. Whittingham possibly would like to have a football graveyard outside of Rice-Eccles Stadium with tombstones recognizing the BCS teams the Utes have defeated in their stadium. Since 2000, the Utes are 15-10 against BCS schools, which is the most wins against BCS teams for any non-BCS team. Under Whittingham the Utes are 6-3 vs. BCS opponents and 3-0 at home. "I think it would be something fun, a good thing to do," Whittingham said. Whittingham isn't the first with the desire to pay tribute to wins against highly regarded opponents with a twist of morbidity. Clemson has a similar graveyard outside of its practice facility marking Top 10 teams it has beaten on the road, and Maryland has one outside of its practice field with the names of the Top 10 teams it has beaten at home. Whittingham spoke of his desires at a recent Crimson Club luncheon, mentioning he would take donations for the project. On Tuesday he said he hasn't had any takers yet but still likes the idea. The Crimson Club, which is often involved in fundraising for such projects, wouldn't put the project on the list of priorities for the organization and would let Whittingham do the fundraising, director Doug Knuth

said. "It has already generated a lot of interest," he said of the idea. "I think fans would love it, but it could backfire, too, and get every BCS team that saw it fired up." Utah athletic director Chris Hill said the idea would have to be discussed further before he gave his approval, but he didn't sound too excited about the proposition. "We have lots of things we need to do to beautify our stadium," he said. "That probably isn't one of them."
The costs of tombstones range from $800 for ones that are 18 inches tall to $2,000 for ones that are three feet tall, according to Alisha Daniels at Salt Lake Monument. "Usually people get them for more traditional reasons," Daniels said. "But we'll do anything, I guess."
