Once you invite a vampire in...


...it can come and go as it pleases!


There is no other point to this post. I just wanted to have an excuse to put up this nice Munch piece, Vampire. (c.1894)


Day three of a holiday weekend. It has rained the entire time. Yet, I do not feel cheated in any way, despite the rain & cold. Every once in a while, a long, rainy, stay-at-home weekend is a good thing for the rejuvenation of one's mental acuity, a clearing of the cobwebs out of the old brain-case, as it were. I finished a big freelance transcription job this week, so didn't have any of that unpleasantness to do over the weekend, a small blessing. And I managed a few good, long, weekend workouts, too. It's nice to have the time to devote to a good sweat, rather than "sneaking one in" on a weekday morning, or between full-time work and freelance stuff.

Saturday was spent in a hungover, melancholy haze; Sunday was for cleaning, reading, laundry, reading, straightening up, reading, listening to some very loud stormy weather music (Mozart's Requiem, with the volume at at...uh...11), a nail-biter between the Angels and Yankees in the evening, fucking Angels COME ON; today I'm being dragged out of the house by the husband, apparently he's got some concerns about me being a hermit, that it's not good to stay in all the time, blah, blah, blah. Though I would be perfectly happy to eat up another book or two this afternoon, listen to the rain, bake something... Oh well, maybe he's right. Perhaps a movie, (is there anything worth seeing on the big screen? Something that isn't a remake of a tired old cartoon or old sitcom, maybe? Something maybe with an original script and a plot? Thought not.) maybe just a few errands and some lunch & drinks someplace, perhaps a shitty chain restaurant for laughs and a case of the runs.

Sorry, no anger today. See what a good night's sleep does for me? What a nice little change.

All the talk of rain reminded of John Cusack movies. A viewing of "High Fidelity" two weeks ago helped me out of my football depression. Last night, I watched Stewie Griffin's Untold Story but I should have went with "Grosse Pointe Blank." The way my football team plays I am going to run out of Cusack movies real soon.

Go see Night Watch, it looks fast pacy and mindlessly good entertainment oh and it has all sorts of creepy goings on, and it is a bit original being sorta Russian in its creation. I haven't seen it yet, but I've read a lot of the reviews and they all say it rocks. Trailer looks great too, you can google it.

Of course it could be shit, in which case I'm sorry.

FMC, thanks for the tip. I'll look it up now.

mrshife - Both excellent choices on a rainy day. I do loves me some John Cusack.

You will be happy to note that I shall be wearing my husband's Bob Gibson Cardinals jersey today, if it isn't a dress on me...

Gibson is the man. In my humble opinion, he had the nastiest curve ball ever.

Did you hear about the lesbian vampires? They only fed once a month.
