Tag Archives: The Beast from 20000 Fathoms

Svengoolie, Stallone, and Couple of Beasts

I set aside my knitting to make a Sunday Cinema Post. I still have not upgraded my blog site so illustrations may be a problem. Perhaps my Media Library will help.

We like Svengoolie.

We started with a DVR’d episode of Svengoolie, The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms. I saw that movie once without the Sven treatment. I wrote a blog post about it. However, I did not remember a lot of stuff, so it was a fun view. Looking back at previous blog posts, I note that this was the third time I have seen the movie. Let’s hear it for not paying much attention!

After Svengoolie and the Beast, Steve suggested we watch Demolition Man, a not well known Sylvester Stallone romp which we find highly entertaining. Now we are looking at Lake Placid, in honor of Betty White. It is another scary monster flick. I thought I had pictures from both movies in my Media Library, but they are proving elusive.

I guess my post-Christmas letdown is kicking in, but that is to be expected. Sometimes you just have to feel that way until you don’t feel that way any more. In the meantime, I have had a fairly enjoyable Sunday watching movies, and I have made a blog post three days in a row. Score!

But I’m Missing Svengoolie!

I pause in my meager activities for a Wrist to Forehead Sunday post.  Of course I rarely get much useful done on a Sunday, but some weeks I feel worse about it than others.  Today I am mostly concerned that I not be making my Sunday post at 4 a.m. Monday.  It looks as if I will at least meet that goal.  As long as I am not too fussy about what sort of post I make.

I went for a pretty good run this morning.  After that, I did not feel like doing much, but after a shower, breakfast, and lounging on the couch and reading a book, I managed to accompany Steven to the grocery store.  We neglected to bring the list so forgot to purchase garlic powder.  These things happen.

I made a pot of chicken soup, using fresh garlic and two yellow onions.  It was yummy!  I still have to put the leftovers away, so the useful portion of my day is not over yet. My only other useful task of the day was a load of laundry.  Now I have clean pants and handkerchiefs for work, at least for the next couple of days.

Earlier we thought to clear our DVR by watching a previously taped movie.  This is a handy way to feel we are accomplishing something when in fact we are just watching television.  Hey, I will take fake usefulness on a Wrist to Forehead Sunday!  However, the movie was Fearless Vampire Slayers, and we neither paid much attention nor watched the whole thing. However, we did delete it so cleared our DVR of two hours’ worth of space.

Now we are watching a DVR’d Svengoolie.  The movie is The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms, a movie I saw previously without a character host.  I wrote about it in a blog post titled Sorry, Cecil and Rays.

Now I see I am over 300 words.  Let’s get that leftover soup in the fridge and get back to enjoying Svengoolie!
