I found this picture among my downloads recently and thought it might be a nice way to begin a Non-Sequitur Thursday post. Full disclosure: I have another one of my headaches in addition to feeling quite lazy and whiny today. I suppose you never feel lazy and whiny (you know who you are). Well, I will bestir myself to type a few words including as few petty complaints as possible.
The above picture, in case you didn’t know, is from Hush… Hush, Sweet Charlotte, one of my favorite movies. My current profile picture on Facebook is Bette Davis in that flick:
I am feeling a little movie melancholy these days, because our DVD/VCR abruptly quit on us during the snow storm of March 2. It happened right after we briefly lost power. It seems a little odd, though, because we have a power strip, which I thought was also a surge protector. The television and cable box emerged unscathed. Phew! The nice this that when we finally get a new player, we will not have seen all our favorite movies for a while.
We don’t watch as many movies these days anyways. As regular readers know, I am addicted to true crime television. And when I really want a movie, I have a few on my DVR, including, if I am not mistaken, a couple of Hammer Horror flicks I recorded last October and haven’t watched yet.
Or I could just read a book.
I see I am closing in on almost 300 words. 300 silly words, but aren’t they usually? I’m going to watch a true crime show till bedtime. Maybe a monster movie tomorrow. Or perhaps I will have a Mohawk Valley adventure I can write a real blog post about. As always, I hope you’ll stay tuned.
