Svengoolie and Snapped on Saturday

I pause in my Saturday gyrations to make a Saturday Cinema Post.  I use the term “gyrations” generously, because I have not really been moving around much.  I took a half hour walk to the post office and back, to mail a couple of cards.  I did a load of laundry (full disclosure: it is still in the drier).  And then I stretched out on the couch, picked up my crochet, and looked at the television.

I actually have on different leggings and slippers, but this shows my current state of relaxation.

 

Great characters!

I was looking at Snapped, but Steven preferred to look at movies.  We finally agreed on Best in Show, one of the Christopher Guest mockumentaries.  It is one of our favorites.

Next I suggested we watch an episode of Mystery Science Theatre 3000, which we have been DVRing from IFC.  This proved to be less entertaining, so we switched to a Svengoolie of The Mummy’s Tomb.  Ooh, here’s a Freudian typo:  I first put “The Mommy’s Tomb.”  I must be thinking of Mother’s Day tomorrow.

I loves me some Svengoolie!

After Svengoolie,  I put it back on Snapped, at least till I could make my blog post.

I loves me some Snapped, too.

What will I watch next?  I don’t know.  But at least I have made some semblance of a blog post.  Happy Saturday,  everyone!

 

Cinema Followed Scattered

I shall attempt a Saturday Cinema post.  We are in fact in the midst of the movie-watching portion of the day.  I am even missing one of my favorite scenes in The Bad Seed as I type this.

Crazy eyes!

Before The Bad Seed, we saw a flick with several killer kids with even crazier eyes: Village of the Damned, screened by Svengoolie.  We DVR all the Svengoolie episodes we can.

I need more rubber chickens in my life.

Before Svengoolie,  we watched one of our all time favorites,  Deathtrap.

Christopher Reeve and Michael Caine, up to no good?

We have not been watching movies all day.  This morning I wrote a few post cards and walked with them to the post office.  I took a long way home, because it was such a beautiful day.  Before leaving for the post office, I put a load of laundry in the washer.  I’m afraid that is the extent of my multi-tasking.  I was happy to be able to hang the laundry on the clothesline.

While the laundry flapped in the breeze, I wrestled the garage door up and hauled out my non-power mower.  Pushing that sucker up and down the lawn is some good exercise.  I figured that would make up for my not running this morning.

I rewarded myself for the yard work with a cold beer, purchased at Beer Belly Bob’s in Ilion (just to sneak in a plug for a local business).  Steven sat with me on the porch while I enjoyed my beverage.  We were both delighted that it was warm enough to do so.

So I guess my blog post has been both Cinema and Scattered Saturday.  Perhaps I should celebrate with another beer.
