I thought I would do a Middle-aged Musings Monday with Monsters. I like monsters. And I think many can identify with the sentiment expressed by Frankenstein’s Monster (I capitalize it, because I feel he is a friend). I suppose there is no point in harping on the fact that it is Monday and we don’t like Mondays, so I shall merely express the thought and move on.
Here is one of my all-time favorite pictures of a couple of my all-time favorite guys: The Grinch and Boris Karloff. I thought it was the best thing in the WORLD when I heard, at a fairly young age, that Boris Karloff was the Grinch. I had never seen Frankenstein, but I knew quite a bit about it. Now that I am a true fan of the movie, of old-time horror movies in general, and of Boris Karloff, I relish seeing our DVD of that classic cartoon.
I guess I have expressed all these sentiments before. We just watched How the Grinch Stole Christmas the other day, and came across that photo on Facebook. I knew I would use it in a blog post. I’m only sorry it is not a better blog post, but, as I often say, you’ll have that.
The title just now occurred to me, and I rather like it. Full disclosure: Nobody stole my weekend. I had a weekend, I enjoyed it, it passed as time passes, I await the next one. However, one is not best served by spending five days of the week merely anticipating two. I will find useful things to do and accomplish during my week. I will write blog posts about them. Happy Monday, everyone.
Oh, I just realized, I said “Middle-aged Musings with Monsters.” I suppose you could count The Grinch, and that makes two. Still, I’ll feel better if I include one more.
I bet you thought I was going to go with Nosferatu. Maybe we’ll see him on Tuesday.
