Happy Friday Woozens!
What a fright-tastic week it has been in Woozworld! Vampires, Goblins, Mummies and Franks have been roaming around, transforming Woozens by the dozens and attending ghoulish games and events. Which ghoul gang do you think is going to win big? Remember to support your team at the huge Halloween Party tonight at 5PM WT! Games will be played, the winning Ghoul-O-Ween team will be announced and, as long as you dress up, you’ll have a shot at winning the Costume Contest! Don’t miss it!
Woozens of all ghoulish backgrounds shared their spooky tales in this week’s My Life As A Ghoul contest. Congrats to Resolute for her great Frank story, JollyR for her fun Goblin story, -AshionStar- and flabin for their awesome Mummy stories and xElliot, TrinityEadie and Lilswaggerificyqe for their spooky Vampire stories!
This week, MyaWooz asked Star of the Week contestants to represent their ghoul team in style. “I was sure the Vampires would take the top prize this week!” Woozworld’s style queen exclaimed when reached for comment. “After all, we are the most fashionable of the ghoul clans. But then Dainty waltzed in wearing this distressed plaid dress, matching heels, and dolloween grin. I always thought Franks were the saddest ghoul, but her jaunty little top hat and perky ponytail proved otherwise. A star is stitched!”
This week, the Woozband held a Ghoul-O-Ween-themed video contest and, let me tell you, there were some ahhhh-mazing entries. The entries were so great, in fact, that it was hard to choose just these three winners! Congratulations to Phoxebe for her fang-tastic video about the perks of being a Vampire, to IzzyW for her Mummy talkshow and to ArianaGrrande, Clap, CuteOwli, and Sophiamax for their spooky Vampire video. Boo-tiful work, Woozens!
Congrats to all of the contest champions!

Ghoul Concerns by kibby
JUST IN!! BREAKING NEWS! Some members of the Woozworld community are upset due to their faces changing into a vampire, mummy, goblin, and frankenstein. I asked a few Woozens how they felt this and is what they said:
“I want my face changed. I don’t know why it is like this.”
“Will my face be like this forever?”
These woozens seem upset and I am not sure how they will respond if their faces keep changing.
This is Kibby reporting for the Woozworld Paper.

A Tasty Halloween Treat! by BrendanCx
Hello Woozens, I have been baking so much for Halloween. It’s crazy! These were so yummy! Back to where I was, I would like to share a yummy cookie with you. You will need parent supervision for this, so don’t do this unless you have a parent or gaurdian with you.
HALLOWEEN PUMPKIN CHIP COOKIES
1 cup pumpkin
1/2 cup any kind vegetable oil
1 cup sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup white chocolate or butterscotch chips
1/2 cup walnuts or pecans, chopped
Preheat oven to 370°F.
Note: If using butterscotch chips, try using butter rum extract or butterscotch schnapps instead of the vanilla for extra flavor.
Blend pumpkin, egg, oil and sugar. Whisk together flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt; gradually add to first mixture. Dissolve the baking soda in milk and add to batter. Stir in chocolate (or butterscotch) chips, nuts and vanilla.
Drop by the teaspoonful onto lightly greased baking sheets.
Bake at 370°F degrees for 10 to 12 minutes. Recipe can be doubled.
Bake and freeze the extra cookies.
(REMEMBER, YOU NEED ADULT SUPERVISION AND A SAY SO TO MAKE THIS)
Bullying by NiNa84
Let’s get real. Bullying is a topic that is visited often, maybe even too often. But, it’s also a topic that will probably never go away. As long as there is discrimination in the world, there will be bullies. Everywhere.
The definition of a bully is a person who uses strength or power to harm or intimidate those who are weaker. But, honestly, I don’t think there is anyone in the world who is weaker than you or me, or anybody. To me , bullies are people who have their own personal issues, and who take out their anger or frustration of thouse issues on someone else.
It’s completely unfair. Just because you’re having a bad day doesn’t mean you should pick on the new kid, who might just be dealing with issues of their own. It’s not fair for you to hurt someone just because you’ve been hurt. From now on look at life with a new perspective.
That girl, who you picked on for not having designer clothes, she just may be getting picked on by someone close to her, someone who should cherish her.
That boy, the one you laughed at for his strange haircut, he may be being verbally abused by a family member at home.
You CAN’T judge a book by it’s cover, because you don’t know the depth of the chapters.
