*ACHOO!!*
EWWW my hands are covered in my own nose mucus! *wipes on the dog*

I've tried a bunch of allergy medications and took Tavis' advice (well..technically his friend Chris') and took Claratin-D. I got the 24 hour non drowsy tablets..but I just took one so it hasn't kicked in yet. So far I find Nyquil works pretty well, but then again, I'm asleep so I cant tell if its actually working. I think Elisha put my dayquil somewhere. Whenever things disappear around here I never ask where they are..I just kind of sulk to myself and buy a new..whichever it was.

Jason is tearing up the back yard to put in cement, a lawn, a brick wall, and a jacuzzi. The brick wall wasnt in the original plan, but after he started destroying the yard he realized all the dirt on the hill need to be supported with something other than a bunch of railroad ties *what we have now*. He broke a water pipe yesterday and we were without water for an entire day. I was pissed...not because I drink water, but because that meant if I had to use the toilet I couldn't flush, and I'm a very modest person so that just did NOT go over well with me. Also, i needed to take a shower because I reeked really really bad. Hey..its hot here, I'm entitled to stink a little =) *stink lines go up from my head*

Watched the History channel all day yesterday and watched History's Mysteries, 3 specials, one on Frankenstein, one on Werewolves, and one on Dracula. I still say I'm very fascinated with Vlad the Impaler, why am I always interested in the "bad boys"? *shrugs* Ah well.

We watched the Boris Karloff version of "Frankenstein" in class the other day and I must say it gave me an interest in those types of movies. I've always thought they were so hokey..and yeah..they are..but theyre inpsiring =) Maybe I'll do some storyboards from it..I still have to rent "the Bride of Frankenstein" because we didn't get to finish it in class. Good effects for the time period!

But of course, my first love will always be "Invasion of the Body Snatchers". *drool*

In other news, I've been trying to contact a storyboard artist my dad met at a Starbucks for an interview. NOt a job interview, I just want to ask him questions about how schooling for storyboarding works, how good the job market is, etc etc. Basically just general questions about the field. He's not returning my calls. >_< I bet if I said I was going to throw money at him he'd call me back..but whatever. If it bothers him that much to drive a couple of miles to meet me at a coffee shop I'd settle for a phone interview..but eh. I guess he's busy. Someone called me when I was at work the other day, but the number was blocked so i couldnt tell who it was. If that was him I'm going to kick myself, because I wasn't at work per se, I was at Hooters with my co-workers and could have easily answered, but didn't for fear of getting trapped in a conversation in a loud room. Good chicken wings though. *licks chops* What, you think I go there for the boobehs??


Okay the Claratin is making my stomach hurt. Better go stand by the toilet and/or trashcan in case I have to spit it back up. There's a lovely thought for you..

Current Mood: sick sick

Ah, what would cable TV be without the History Channel? And uhm... I guess I'll be slip-slidin' away now, on whatever mucus is lying around...

I had to laugh at the Hooters' wings, we saw some in the frozen section while food shopping last night, and my wife pointed out that a woman developed them. I asked how she knew, and she said that any man who says they have the best wings now can have them at home--and he doesn't need to go to Hooters for them. Hmmm. I hope they have other really great food there...

It's not "Great" food, but it's good. and large portions. They doo a great Philly Cheese steak, and you can get French Fries with Velveeta melted all over them.

we got 50 wings. TASTY! =) i dont normally like gnawing on bones *is seriously disgusted by veins..ew..* but it was the only thing I could do to avert my eyes from the pillows on the waitress' chest. Hey, theyre huge, its not like I can miss them >_

Awwww. you say that like it's a bad thing. Besides the Hooters in SD has a lot better looking waitresses than the one in San Francisco. The one in San Francisco doen't even try, which means the food is not as good, and they try and push more beer.

Which Version of Body Snathers? there are like three of them.I say the 70's version with DOnald Sutherland and it gave me a lifelong love of "Amazing Grace" on the Bagpipes. I've also seen the 1950's version. Haven't seen last years version yet, though.

Bride of Frankenstein is over the top, but is also one of the rare cases where the sequel is better than the original. For me, the best example of Cinematic pacing and timing is the 1933 King Kong. as it rips along, but without being a "Rollercoaster" Like Van Helsing Was. Son of Kong was as slow as molasses in contrast, and isn't all that good. Typical Sequel. The Werewwolf movies with Lon Chaney Junior are hust kind of ... sad, I guess. The Dracula Movie is an adaptation of a stage play, which is whythe shots are so long.

You want a cool 1930's movie? see if you can find "The General Dies at Dawn".

The original Body Snatchers...its got that hokey 50's charm =) I have the movie poster, I got it from Jay and Silent Bob's Secret Stash. Why they had it? I have no idea..but its mine now..BWAHAHAHA!

Yeah I agree Bride of Frankenstein was cooler than the original, more music! I hate not having background music its too weird.

Wolfman movies suck..even though I'm a wolf afficionado, the flat faced transformation scenes always piss me off. I have yet to see the old Dracula movies...but I used to watch some of those weird "giant radiation commie monster of doom" movies on...i dont remember which channel it was but it was funny. There was the one with the people in gorilla suits with the space helmets..perhaps an original planet of the apes? hee hee who knows =) Forgot the name of it though.

Gorilla Suits and Diving Helmets could only be the laughably Inept "Robot Invasion" one of the worst movies made. but the absolute worst was "The Creeping Terror" which was made in "Stockton" in the mide fifties, and the monster was an army tent with radiator hose tentacles and some cooking utensils hacked up and affixed for detail. It also has one of the first "vore" scenes in films. that film will put you to slep. It didn't even have synched sounds, just sound effects and narration. I did like "This Island Earth" and "Forbidden Planet, but given my age. I watched a TON of 50's and 60's monstermovies on local UHF< until cable came in 1984, andmade them too expensive for UHF to show, and now I never see them, except behind a set of silhouetted robot heads.

although youve described it I know that wasnt the name of it..it was something..more vague. *thinks* not sure. I'll admit though, I laughed my ass off for the first half and then changed the channel out of boredom, besides, Comedy Central Presents was on =>

army tent..lol!
