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.


Who Knew?

Oddball thrillers/horrors aren’t usually on my watch list, but I was looking for something different last night.  As I sat helping my daughter sand some dressers for her apartment, I turned on Netflix, and proceeded to watch Creep.  And because horror, or anything remotely creepy, isn’t her ‘thing’, she called it quits, and retreated to her room while I finished the movie, and sanding.

Something Is Wrong With Me

I watched Unfriended a little while ago, and actually found myself laughing at how horrible the characters turned out to be.

It’s not surprising, really.  Given today’s ease of use and highly accessible technology, things like identity theft, stalking, and bullying have become unspeakably horrific.

When a Skype chat turns bad for a group of friends, their sins are exposed by an evil and very angry force.   Things take a turn during a game of never have I ever – basically confessing your sins – hopefully teaching the viewer to rethink bullying, lying, and throwing important people under the bus.  It could come back to haunt you.

As for laughing, my best friend called me a sicko.  I think I laughed at how stupid the characters are, who all believed they could get away with screwing each other over.  As the old saying goes, karma is a bitch.  She WILL come back and bite you in the ass sooner or later, if you’ve wronged others.

If you believe in things like having a soul, the afterlife, and anything celestial, watch this during the day.  If you’re a conspiracy theorist like me, the creep factor revolving around an easily hackable internet might bother you.

And now I’m off to watch more creepy shit.  I wonder why I don’t sleep well, and have whacked dreams…
