I Love Mice!

| | Comments (7)

And by today's subject title I'm NOT referring to the scurrying rodents! Make no mistake, I do harbour strong feelings towards them too, but I assure you, those feelings fall on quite the opposite side of the emotional spectrum as love!

So in this instance, I'm referring to him of course! (But tell Mrs. Mice and Little Bit not to be jealous, because my affection includes all of you.)

And why do I love thee so much to-day, Mr. Mice?

Because I got the movies that you sent me! Yes, readers, that's movieS - plural!

Mice and I were talking the other day (around Halloween, methinks) and although I can't remember exactly what was said, we did at some point chat about the fact that the boy and I... brace yerselves... don't have satellite or even CABLE T.V.!!!!!!!

So Mice did what any civilized person with a heart will do and he promptly took pity on me.

And since he is the King of Horror movies, he decided that I desperately needed some entertainment and education (also known, in some very high-ranking U.S. government circles, as edumefication) and thus he offered to send me any horror movie of my choice.

Now, since I don't know much (okay, anything! I don't know anything) about the genre, I left it up to him. And so, last night I received not one, not even two, but THREE WHOLE (AND CLASSIC) HORROR MOVIES!!!!!

Their terrifying titles are: The Brides of Dracula, Black Christmas (what better way to kick off the season?) and Aaaaaaoooooooooooooowwwwwwww: She-Wolf of London.

THANK YOU, Mice, Mrs. Mice and Little Bit! The boy and I are already shivering in antici......... PATION and can't wait to start watching it.

So readers, stay tuned for some real amateurish reviews from me over the next few weeks.

No cable? No satellite? First off that's inhumane. I mean, how can you deprive yourself the pleasures of such t.v. shows as MTV's ''Real World/Road Rules'' marathons, FOX's ''My Big Fat Obnoxious Boss'' and TNN's ''WWE RAW''? How you go through life without those shows enriching your life, I'll never know. Instead, you probably spend your time reading or going out or, even worse, working. How you live with yourself, I'll never know. :-P

about
is a South African girl living in South Africa. That doesn't sound very original, we know, but you might find it remotely interesting when you learn that she has only recently returned to South Africa for the first time after a nine year, one month and two week (non-stop!) stint in the United States where she accidentally became an outlawed alien (also known, especially in immigration circles, as an 'illegal immigrant.' We prefer the term 'outlawed alien' ourselves). During her reversed exile from her homeland, she kept herself occupied by winning this website (but only after shamelessly bribing the judges) and thus being unleashed on the web where she slowly, leisurely became the World's Laziest Blogger; by being a nanny and by attending sci-fi conventions in search of other aliens. In the US, she also made her sailing debut, her international acting debut, tried and failed to learn the piano, and never learned to cook. She is hopelessly addicted to coffee, dogs (especially Labrador Retrievers), how-to books (with a particular fondness for her copy of the Time/Life A - Z Medical Encyclopedia), and she tends to grossly overuse parentheses (we're not kidding) during her attempts at writing, which you may - if you really have masochistic tendencies - subject yourself to by reading the words to the right of this column. If you REALLY and truly STILL want to know more, you can read her C.V. here.
Or you can stalk her send her some love via e-mail at: redsaid[AT]gmail[DOT]com

The Wish List (Because yes, she really does need more how-to books. Honestly!)
