You deserve nice, cool things. We all do. So, every week one of the BYT editors will share what’s on top of their wish list right now so you know what it is we are coveting right now, and you can covet it as well (or even buy it). Simple as that.
New year, same creepy me! – Jenn Tisdale
- Serial Killer Body Bar Soap – $8.95 on Etsy
Okay, this is a lot of money to pay for (what should probably just be decorative) soap. And sure, I came across this because I’ve been known to enter the search term “serial killer” into Etsy to see what pops up. Yes, I live alone (I keep to myself). But I also appreciate puns, and body soap with an ear and a finger in it doesn’t get more punny than that! Also what if an actual murderer used this to wash blood off her hands. What a time to be alive (dead)!
- Weekend Pass to Monster-Mania Con – $50.00
I’ve been to SEVERAL Monster-Mania Cons. Anthony Michael Hall once lightly rubbed my back while we posed for a photo together which prompted me to ask if he was tracing his hotel room number (he wasn’t). I met Christopher Lloyd or as he’s ONLY known to me, Doc Brown. I told Heather Langenkamp (Nancy from A Nightmare on Elm Street) all the Freddy Krueger jokes I’ve written. There were a few. Next to the Maryland Renaissance Festival it’s my favorite place to go where I’m guaranteed to be surrounded by like-minded weirdos who are also shelling out hundreds of dollars to get pictures with that guy in that one movie you love. This year has a STELLAR lineup, including but not limited to most of the young cast from the IT remake. I do think it’s kind of weird to have kids there signing autographs for potentially wacky adults but I’m sure someone is handling that. I wouldn’t do it but maybe I’ll scream something like YOU’LL FLOAT TOO from across the hotel.
- Hunt A Killer Subscription – $25.00/month prepay for a year
Every month you receive a box with clues about a murder (or several?) and eventually you have to piece them together to solve it/them. It’s an Escape Room that comes to you. It’s Clue but bigger. It’s Bones without the bones. Hell maybe there are bones I JUST DON’T KNOW. I do know that I love murder and I hate leaving my house so this is perfect.
- Escape Room Live Georgetown – $168.00 for 8 people
In October I went to New Orleans and when it rained horribly one day my family and I did an Escape Room which was insanely fun. The Escape Room Live location in Georgetown has a Friday the 13th themed room and I can’t even imagine what that is. Is Jason there? Are two camp counselors boning? Hope not. Which Jason is it? Weird scarecrow Jason from Friday the 13th part 2 or the hockey mask wearing strong silent type we’ve all grown to know and love? I almost don’t want to escape.
- Winchester House – So Much Money
Based on my family’s history I too need a Winchester House. Not familiar? Buckle up. Long story short Sarah Winchester (widowed wife of gun magnate William Winchester) was told by a medium to continuously build a home for herself and the spirits of those who were killed by a Winchester gun. She never stopped building until her death. My mother’s last name is Deringer. My great times 5 grandfather invented the Deringer pistol. That same pistol was used by John Wilkes Booth to assassinate Abraham Lincoln, among others. It’s clear I need to atone for my family’s sins. And since one of our guns killed Abraham Lincoln we’ll probably have to make one of those rooms an oval office.
That’s all. For this week.
