All good if a little quiet

I've been busy and things have been distracting me, not the least Kurt and Blaine from Glee.

What a wonderful scene when they kissed on Monday night's show.

I'm having blogger trouble with uploading videos; haven't the time or inclination to update my technology to allow this and my IT guy is never around. Or if he is, he's watching tv or doing his own tech blah de blah thangs.

Otherwise things are ok. Yep busy. But yep good.

What news have you? I'm feeling out of touch.

Bloody hell

Oh, Japan now?

I have friends in Osaka, so they are ok but in-laws via my bro in Tokyo. Don't have any news yet.

What the fuck is going on?

My kids are the tsunami-generation. Hell they are the Disaster Generation. Forget Y or whatever they are up to.

It's just too awful to really contemplate for too long. Sorry, I have disaster-fatigue.


In other news, it's the long weekend (yay) and it's a nice day (also yay) and the long-running movie education of Princess is now entering the Horror Genre. We are about ready to head off to the video store, this is the list (we won't get all these...):

Silence of the Lambs - I know it's R but it's a good movie and I might pre-watch again (ages since I've seen it) then could maybe struggle through it again with her. We shall see. I don't want to break my no-R-ratings for another couple of years... But if we are to break it, shouldn't it be for Leo in Basketball Diaries rather than Ant Hopkins in SOTL?

The Omen - CLASSIC and she must watch it.

The Exorcist - another R rating that I won't let her watch but I wouldn't mind revisiting myself.

Halloween, Nightmare on Elm Street

And then a few I've not seen or even heard of that she has heard of:


And then Clokes said The Vanishing is very scary. I think I've seen it and if it's the one I'm thinking of, not so?? But can revisit.

Last night we watched Sixth Sense and The Shining. She thought The Shining was funny/piss weak. Loved the Sixth Sense.


I am planning to work on my project this weekend, amongst horror movies. It's not a genre I love but she seems to be curious so rather than leaving her alone with it I am happy to watch them with her. She is particularly interested in Wolf Creek and I have said no. In fact, Wolf Creek was the last contemporary horror movie I saw; it completely put me off the genre. The Ring I couldn't watch with the sound up and without fast forwarding then rewinding and Blair Witch I watched from behind a cushion with the sound down. I am pretty wimpy when it comes to horror.

Enjoy the long weekend.
