An Oddly Haunted Journey

Let's take an Oddly Haunted Journey through the month of October 2011!

Every day in October at 12:13 GMT (7:13 a.m. New York, 9:13 p.m. Sydney), I'll tweet two words with the hashtag #ohj from @OddlyStarry.

Your job is to contribute one or more tweets inspired by one or both words.  Tag your tweet with #ohj or #OHJ.  Since we're taking an oddly haunted journey through the month of October, leading to Halloween, try to make your tweet haunted or scary or horrifying in some way.

One of my words will be fairly simple and common, while the other will be a bit more unusual.

In addition to typical text tweets containing a short story, pun, haiku, gogyohka, tanka, etc., you could also make a link to a photo, a video, a sound, or anything else you can think of!

You don't have to use the word exactly as given.  For example, if the word is "run", you could use run, runs, running, ran, or runnable.  Or you could just use the word as an inspiration, and go with sprint or race.  Keep in mind that many words have more than one definition, and more than one part of speech.

You could also combine one of my words with words from other games like Loqwacious, Artwiculate, and others!

Once in a while, just to keep things fresh, I might ask you to supply the caption to a picture, or I might do a hashtag game.

Have fun!  :)
