Another NaBloPoMo prompt: Do you like scary movies that make you jump? I’m not old enough to watch scary movies! I find them far too frightening, indeed, nightmare-inducing. Sam required that I watch The Crow with him when we’d just started dating him (I can’t remember why anymore) and, like a fool, I didn’t refuse absolutely. […]
Plinky said, “Name a movie that has a great soundtrack.” There are so many! If I had access to my full music library right now, we could be here all day, because I do love movie soundtracks. For simplicity’s sake, I decided to leave musicals out of this discussion. My first pick is Chocolat, a […]
(I think I’ve already used “Not Dead Yet” as a title, and I really don’t like to be too repetitive.) I haven’t been posting much, and it isn’t really because I haven’t had anything at all to say. In fact, I’ve repeatedly started to write posts. In fact, I’ve finished writing some posts—but each time, […]
I hate coming up with titles. Can you tell? Happy New Year to all of you. I hope to see more of you in person this year! I’m still not feeling well at all, so I haven’t been online much. Despite that, my wrists have been aching as if I were working again. How does that happen? […]
I figure it’s past time I check in again. Obviously, I’ve given up on the Blog365 thing. I did make it 9 months or so, at least. Katie turned 18 at the end of October, so she voted in the election for the first time. I’m really tickled that her first time was so historic! We’ll […]
We’re watching Hogfather. It is insanely, delightfully silly.
Sam took Katie up to Republican land to pick up her new glasses lenses today—she went to the eye doctor while she was with my parents because they were out driving and realized that she was squinting to read the road signs. Her eyes hadn’t changed much at her last few yearly check-ups, but they […]
Go go go! This is the last day to see it free! If it comes out on DVD as hoped, we’ll be buying a copy. It’s hilarious. Oh! There’s also a Captain Hammer comic!
Katie got the Juno DVD last week, so we all watched it together Friday night. She’s been gushing about it since seeing it in the theater and adores the soundtrack, so we were certainly curious. It was an odd movie, fairly quiet—no car crashes, big tragedies, etc. It was really well done, and I was […]
Sam and I just finished watching it–the 2004 Cole Porter biopic/musical. It was, absolutely, De-Lovely and Delightful and every other positive adjective you can think of! Porter is my favorite composer, but honestly, I put this one in the Netflix queue after seeing a YouTube clip of John Barrowman singing “Night and Day” with Kevin […]
