Just Make with the Monsters, Me!

And just like that, it is time for another Monstrous Monday Post. Full disclosure: I am tired and depressed, and now embarrassed that I even mentioned it. I should stop calling attention to myself and make with the monsters.

Hardly an uncommon point of view.

Most of us Monday through Friday wage slaves feel this way about Monday. If I can confine the feeling to Monday and not let it ruin my Sunday, I feel better about things.

I was tempted to bring them home.

I’m not just about movie monsters. Here are a couple of ghouls from Pumpkin Junction in Sauquoit, NY. Of course I do not want to rush through spring and summer, but won’t it be fun when It’s Halloween time again?

Isn’t it National Women’s Day?

Scrolling through my Media Library, I came across a movie poster I have not shared recently. I tend to share the classics a lot, but I do love a cheesy flick about a bug monster.

Here is a cheery fellow!

I close with a dose of cuteness. My husband Steven gave me the sweet vampire. My friend Marsha sent me the pot. The Orange cloth is a t-shirt I just happened to have. As usual, the monsters have cheered me up. Happy Monday, everyone!

Movie-ing into 2019

Steven and I are once again spending a quiet New Year’s Eve at home.  Sometimes I long to go to a fancy party, dress to the nines, rub elbows with other fancy people, dance, sip champagne and have a balloon drop at midnight.  Then I find myself sitting on my couch in my sweats, crocheting and watching movies, and I say, “This is the bomb!”  Still, a blog post must be written, so while the current movie plays, I shall type a few words in hopes of entertaining somebody besides myself (of course it will entertain me, but I am notoriously un-fussy in that department).

Steven was enjoying the usual Twilight Zone marathon on Sci-Fi channel, but I confess to not being a fan of that show.  I hope that statement does not lose me any readers, but I believe honesty is the best policy.  Anyways, he graciously agreed to watch movies instead and we enjoyed The Wasp Woman (1959), which I had DVR’d off TCM recently.  I loves me some Roger Corman!

Actually, in the movie she has a wasp head and a woman body.

I wrote a blog post about The Wasp Woman once.  I remembered it being fairly entertaining, and it was.  I missed some of the movie because I was cooking, so I asked that next we watch a movie we have seen, so I wouldn’t mind being in and out.  We settled on Ed Wood (1994).  Back when I liked Tim Burton movies.

One of Johnny Depp’s better roles, in my opinion.

Next we went to one of our go-to movies, House on Haunted Hill (1959), the original William Castle film with Vincent Price.  I loves me some William Castle!

It has always seemed to me that you could win a fight with a skeleton, because they don’t have any muscles. Just saying.

Next I found a video I purchased at a rummage sale some time ago, Brain Eaters (1958).  Unfortunately, Steven found that one rather boring and asked that we switch it out.  I suggested Mystery of the Wax Museum (1933) with Fay Wray.  I consider that a New Year’s movie because in includes New Year’s Day 1933.

I’d scream, too!

And that brings us up to date.  I am half watching the movie while I type this.  As I am over 350 words, I shall feel free to hit Publish and go back to my crochet. Happy New Year, everybody!
