Youtube and my laptop and pics of Donovan  
Hi there everyone!

I am not ignoring anybody! I promise. The kids decided to sabotage my laptop by accidentally pouring grapefruit soda onto it.

Well, okay, maybe not onto it, but near it which crept into it via the tablecloth. To make a long story short, I lost the use of my keypad and the mouse.

I've been using the iMac which we got for Griffon. But it's really fucking hard to write or create anything when you've got everyone coming up behind me. I'm sort of stuck in one spot here.

I discovered many fascinating things on youtube though while I've been here. Did you know they post whole movies on there? I'm in old horror movie heaven! I've watched Prom Night, Slaughter High (which still sucks and is the latest one made in 1987), House on Sorority Row and The Dorm That Dripped Blood. I love 'old' (old as in movies made in the 70's and early 80's) horror/slasher movies, when 'slash' meant the ole hack and well...slash. Did you know that they remade the wonderful 70's horror classic Black Christmas in 2006. They posted that one (the 2006) in its entirety. Don't bother with that one. The original (with Olivia Hussey and Margot Kidder) was much, much better. This was just a gory re-hash.

Also, we bought Deathproof, the second movie that was shown on the Grindhouse movie back in May. There was a trailer on it for a movie called Black Sheep, a horror movie and no, it wasn't a faux trailer - it's a real movie.

A horror movie.

About killer sheep.

No shit.

I found a trailer of the movie on youtube. You just have to see it.



See what I mean?


Also, I bought Donovan's Halloween costume. I couldn't resist and the kid's crazy about everything Star Wars.










And of course, Rowan wanted to try it on also:





I've been running around for the past week going everywhere and trying to post, answering feedback and such and no one is cooperating with me.

Stupid busy RL. *pouts*

I had to grab the folding ladder from the shop tonight and bring Brandin home with me (one of our employees and my daughter's ex.) I know I've been watching too many horror films and clips when I looked at the ladder behind me in the Expedition:

Me: God, with that thing right behind me, I hope we don't have one of those accidents ala Final Destination.
Brandin: Ewwww...well we shouldn't.
Me: Don't be so sure. Probability is now high since one of the passengers in the car is a cute young male.

Yeah, Brandin certainly falls into the category of 'most likely to meet a horrible end' per the horror movie credo.

But we made it back in one piece.

I'm going to be writing hopefully (*crosses fingers*) tonight. I'm borrowing one of the girl's old laptops and taking it with me during one of my many errands.

Hope everything's good with everyone else.

Love you all, Maria.

Ew ew ew. No horror movies. The only one I ever (sort of) watched was "Vincent Price's Tales of Terror" or something like that. I was eleven years old, and traumatized forever.

That said, I have no idea why I love your horror-inflected fic so much.

*Mumbles*

*Shivers*

*Goes to bed. Trying to have happy thoughts.*

They have gotten too gory now. Ewwww...

I know of the movie of which you speak. That would be very traumatizing.

When Alien first came out, I was 15 and my sister was 25. She needed therapy after witnessing that alien popping out of John Hurt scene.

I said 'cool.'

:P
