Pass The Cheese, Please

Babybel Light is a fave, in case you’re wondering.  Cheese and dairy aren’t exactly on the ‘healthier choices’ list right now, but these low-fat delights are nice for the occasional craving.  It doesn’t take much cheese to satisfy me, unless we’re talking about casseroles.

Speaking of casseroles, I’m just now getting around to writing about some of my dreams last night.  Continue reading

Why Do I Torture Myself?

This may be a repeat statement, but I may never sleep again.  I’m an idiot for watching horror films at night.  I never learn.

Any horror I watch is usually reserved for midday, so that I can block it out by the time I hit the pillow.  But last night I just couldn’t wait, and I proceeded with renting Hereditary.

One of my best friends is a serious horror fan, and when she says something is creepy, I’m like a mosquito drawn to light, and can’t wait to watch whatever freaked her out.  Hereditary didn’t disappointment, but GODDAMN was it messed up!  F*cked up ending aside, the entire film was one huge creepy escalation, which at one point made me scream OH MY GOD, which in turn made Kevin come running out of the bedroom to see what was wrong.

“Oh, nothing.  Just a possessed mother who float-crawled across the room, trying to kill her son.”  And then he shook his head at me because I was watching a horror movie at night.  To top it off, I had a pillow and my blanket to hide behind, because it was that creepy.  I haven’t done that since the first time I watched Salem’s Lot when I was 10.

And of course afterwards I had to reprogram my head with a bit of Nick Jr. before I went to bed, because if I didn’t, there would be no sleeping.  Even then, I stayed up until 1:30, scrolling on my phone, alternating several times between Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, and several other platforms.  Nothing like a little phanfiction and mukbang to calm my creeped out brain.

If you’re a fan of horror, and haven’t seen Hereditary, you might like this film.  Or not.  It depends on what kind of horror you like.

 

EXCUSE ME!

Normally movie endings don’t bother me, but recently 2 movies have left me saying WTF?  It’s like watching The Mist all over again, and I’m left hanging.

As some know, I’m a fan of horror.   I’ve recently watched The Ritual and The Wailing.  I just finished the latter, and I’m like WHAT?!?!  What is that ending???  Without spoilers, I can tell you I’m not a fan of certain types of endings.  I need closure.  Even if it’s something terrible.  But noooooo!  I guess that’s the nature of some films.

I have to say, though, that I’m happy with the season 2 finale of Santa Clarita Diet, which I just finished a couple of days ago.  If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend it.  I’m not a typically fan of dark humor, but this series had me laughing at every single episode.  Timothy Olyphant (Joel) is the best!

All that said, I need to finish Black Mirror.  Talk about a messed up series, where the main idea revolves around society and its addiction and dependency on technology – primarily smart devices.

Who needs regular cable or satellite tv???  Netflix, Hulu and Prime have some great series to watch, and I’ll be busy for a while, now that my kids are back to school.
