General Update

I know, I fell behind again. I know. But we had a big dinner last night and apparently I’ve reached the age where after any kind of sizeable meal I fall asleep on the couch at 7:30. So I figured I would do a quick update now, then later this afternoon/evening I would get back into my horror watching. Also, I’m only behind one day. If you follow my Instagram, you’ll see I did watch a movie on Thursday. I just didn’t blog about it.

I got a promotion!


It only took ten years. I now work back office, which means NO CUSTOMERS. Isn’t it awesome? It is for me! I’ve been working since I was 15 (19 years), and it’s all been customer service- mall jobs, Hallmark, grocery store. Now I’m doing office work. I have a little cubicle and everything! I get to decorate it how I like, and it’s going along slowly but surely. Monday was a bank holiday, I had two days of off-site training and two days of work. I have no idea what I’m doing or why, but I’m having a ball! It helps having an excellent support group, and my team is amazing. So are the people who don’t even work in my department.

I’m still knitting away! I know I’m super behind in posting my projects. I’m even bad about updating my Ravelry. I’m currently knitting two secret projects for a friend, so I can’t mention them here. I’ll try to better about posting projects as I go.

I am still baking. Yes, I am watching the new season of Bake Off. I have a lot of thoughts about it, so that will be its own special post after this season is over. I’m also watching the Great Australian Bake Off over on YouTube, which is pretty fantastic in its own right. Matt Moran is super cool, and I want Maggie Beer to be my other grandma. Last year James said he thought Maggie probably smelled like cookies and kindness, and I’ve decided he’s right.

Matt and Maggie

We’ve bundled Lauren off to college. When did that happen? She is so damn smart. She wants to be a doctor. She even has a little squad already (her words, not mine) and they all study together. Chemistry is her toughest class and Chinese is her favorite and I would gush about how proud I am but I’m not that gross.

Winter is over a year old now and is as active as ever. We call it rampaging. Richie and his best friend Tim actually created a cell phone game called Rampage Kitty. You play as a kitten and your job is knock over as much stuff as possible. Download it! (Only 99 cents)

Is that…. everything? I think it is, for the moment. Okay. Hopefully I’ll be back to the horror blogging tonight.



Halloween Horror Challenge Day 11

Still going strong! Wooo!

Fatal Attraction

Zombie and I had a discussion about whether or not this counts as horror. I say yes, because people like Alex exist, and anybody could find themselves in that situation. That thought is horrifying, hence horror. Plus, bunny in the pot. I think she considers it more thriller than horror. Discuss.

Halloween Horror Days 6-9

This three day weekend was pretty productive on the movie front. Two yesterday, two today. And guess who’s all caught up? Guess who’s a good girl?

Up first, The Village

The VIllage

Whatever, I love it, and hate The Sixth Sense.

Day 7:


I don’t know if this counts, but Christopher Walken scares me, so we’re going with it.

Day 8:

The Wolfman

The original. The best. Sorry, Benecio.

Day 9:

White Zombie

Bela Lugosi stars in this one I haven’t seen in a couple of years.

Halloween Horror Challenge Days 4 & 5

Yes, I know I’m already behind. I know. BUT it’s a holiday weekend, so that’s okay! Scary movie marathon!

The Fog

John Carpenter is a genius. Then you have Jamie Lee Curtis, some of her Halloween pals, her mom, and Adrienne Barbeau. Can’t lose.

Vincent Price

Yes, you’ve probably seen this image before. But who doesn’t like The House on Haunted Hill? (If you don’t, leave now. We can never coexist.) Vincent is just the king of horror. And that voice? Thriller.

Halloween Horror Challenge Days 1 & 2

Today I decided to watch one horror movie for each month of October. Yes, I know I don’t have the best track record with challenges. Although, if you follow me on tumblr or Instagram, you would know I finished NaKniCroMo.

Since I came up with the idea today, I was obviously one day behind. So tonight, it’s two movies to kick off Halloween month.



Yup. The master. Happy tossing and turning.
