Earlier today I remembered (and posted on Facebook) my personal rule for myself (as opposed to my personal rules for other people, which we won’t get into right now) that on Sundays it is OK for me to be completely useless. It occurs to me that this is the source of my Wrist to Forehead Sundays: the conflict between the fact that I am useless and the nagging suspicion that I ought not to be. I suppose a blogger could take a day or two off in the course of a week, but we all know, that’s not for me.
I’m thinking I will eschew Wrist to Forehead Sunday and begin a feature called Sweats and Sweetie Sunday. I reach the bra off, sweats on portion of the day very early on many Sundays. Additionally, my husband Steven is usually off work by one in the afternoon, and we almost never have the same day off, so Sunday is our day together. We do get silly (what a surprise), so I will feel free to get silly on my Sunday post (which will differentiate it from the other days a week not at all).
Today is National Cheese Day. I thought I would like to mark it by watching cheesy horror movies. However, we could not think of one we really wanted to see today. I was actually in the mood to watch something like The Postman Always Rings Twice. During our great discussion about what movie to watch (we would probably watch more movies if we spent less time deciding which movie to watch, but there’s no point in chasing dreams), we started suggesting movies substituting “cheese” for one of the words in the title. And can I just say, movie makers who make movies with one-word titles are most inconsiderate.
Our suggestions included Cheese on Haunted Hill, Cheese on the Orient Express, All About Cheese, The Bride of Cheesenstein, Plan Cheese from Outer Space (which we just recently watched), Grosse Point Cheese, and His Cheese Friday. Finally we settled on The Postman Always Rings Cheese. It is not a cheesy movie, but it could be argued that the characters are a little sleazy (but I shall not argue that, because it would be too much trouble on Sweats and Sweetie Sunday). Now we are watching Hush… Hush… Sweet Cheese. Steven had to ask if it was Hush… Hush… Sweet Cheese or Cheese… Cheese… Sweet Charlotte. It was the former, because in my On This Day in Facebook, I noted that I had made a blog post with just that title.
As an additional note: Cecil Kellaway is in both of our movie choices for today. That makes it a Cecil Kellaway film festival. I hope my blog post has entertained somebody. As for myself, I am going to continue to sit on the couch and enjoy my movies, cheesy and otherwise. Happy Sunday, everyone.
