Review of Episode 3.

Sorry I got so behind again.

I may temporarily go to a M/W/F schedule for posting. I'm watching both Bates Motel and Hannibal, and if I want to review both while keeping a twice-weekly update, then I'm a) never going to catch up to current episodes, and b) won't be able to review anything else while both seasons are in progress. After one of the shows ends its season, I'll probably go back to a Tuesday/Friday posting schedule.

This is still assuming I can keep to ANY kind of schedule. So... HA.

I liked this episode a little more than the first one.

I was aiming for (and started doing) a Monday/Thursday schedule for posting, but I think Tuesday/Friday may be more doable for me. We go out on Sunday and Wednesday nights, and generally I'm not up early enough the following mornings to get a post posted.

So A&E has a new show called "Bates Motel," which is a contemporary prequel to Psycho. It's... okay so far.

I meant to post yesterday, but forgot. :P

This one is a bad, bad movie.

Kind of mixed feelings about this one...

Solid film, even if it wasn't incredibly revolutionary.

I actually thought this one was pretty good.

I love you, and hope it's a fantabulous day. <3

This is one of those silly campy bad horror movies. It's definitely not a good movie, but it's kind of fun to laugh at.

This wasn't a BAD movie, but it wasn't a GOOD movie either. Short review here.

It's just a seriously bad movie. No really. SO BAD.

We went out and got fajitas for dinner (though we brought them home rather than eating in the restaurant) and OH MAN THEY WERE SO GOOD. SO. GOOD. And it was a crapton of food... it was a "dinner for two" thing, but I'm pretty sure it would have fed at least four. That was hours ago and I still feel overfull (but in a mostly pleasant way or at least not unpleasant.)

Bummer that tomorrow is supposed to be our nice day, and Sunday it may snow again, since Sunday is my day off. I'm feeling a little crazy lately, and I think it's partially from not going out to do much. The internship does break the monotony of my normal work week nicely, but it's still doing work... it's not the same as getting out and doing something entirely recreational. I also realized that I think I forgot to sign out on Thursday... oops.

Ugh... in general still just not feeling real well. Still probably a lot of stress, probably combined with mundane things like *having no time for the sun* and *thinking three hours of sleep per night is reasonable.* It's getting frustrating, though.

Unrelated to everything, I've been reading lots of creepypasta over the last few days. Some of them are really good, but I do wonder when the trend toward practically novella length stories started. I mean, creepypasta has only been a thing I was aware of for... a year or two, maybe? But while the stories that are now usually considered the "best" are often really good, they aren't what I generally thought creepypasta was supposed to be. I enjoyed the ultra-short fiction aspect (thought the semi-related long-form ARG/character blogs/slow descent into horror installment stories/etc. have always been fun, too.) A lot of the new ones I'm seeing look more like traditional short stories, even though many of them are quite good. Much as I adore a well-crafted creepy short story, especially if it succeeds in drawing some tension out over the equivalent of 10 or 20 pages, I think it takes a different skill set to get that kind of creepy impact in half a page. Ah well, I enjoy them all, so I'm not really complaining too hard.

I remember what I was going to post about yesterday!

This time, let's just guess what the commercial was selling, okay? I admit that these are not presented in the chronological order from within the infomercial, but if it's in quotation marks it's as close as I can remember to what they really said about it at some point. (I was writing these down as we went.) GUESS THE CONTEXT!

First, you'll want to note that this product is "quick and easy and hot!" and comes with "multiple attachments"! It also has a "swiveling head." The (male) host/demonstrator also proudly shows off that "If you notice, I've got a red tip right here!" Also of interest may be the optional attachments, including the "slimline wand" and the "comfort cradle."
One of the key benefits is that it "requires less rubbing!" and works on "both light and dark wood," and in fact, it works on "most hard surfaces." It can achieve "deep penetration" but is also suitable for very "delicate surfaces." In addition to requiring less rubbing, it also requires "just one touch" to "get going."
Obviously, you'll want to clean up anything that may have "dribbled down the side." But you'll see, as the host points out, "there's the mess, right on the rag!"
A satisfied female customer points out that she loves it, because it's "so easy to maneuver! I don't have to struggle with it!"
And of course, "if you think that's good, just wait until you see it in the shower!"

WHAT WOULD YOU REASONABLY BELIEVE THEY WERE SELLING?

Also, I slept until 2:30 today. I are an adult.

We actually sold out of bread and almost everything else at work today. That's only the second time that's happened while I've been there! (The first was Christmas Eve.) We sold out of bread at about 5, so Jim told us we could leave at 5:15. All we had left were some scones and cookies. Yes, it was only fifteen minutes early, but still kind of neat.

Ugh, and mostly I just feel ready to crawl into bed and sleep forever. I'll probably spend part of tomorrow doing that, although it's supposed to be fairly nice, so maybe we'll be able to go do something. I hope so, anyway.

Can't think of much else to say at the moment, though as usual, I think I had something to say. Ah well.

 Today was even more exhausting than most. Typical things, just to the power of ten. Now to drink and dance!

I actually wrote two reviews for my horror movie blog today. I have a bunch written now... of course that means somewhere between diddly and squat if I never post anything. :P But still, it's been a while since I even poked at that, so it's a step in the right direction.

I know that one of the best things you can do with regards to any kind of blog (especially a topic-oriented one, as opposed to something personal like this journal) is to have a consistent and fairly frequent update schedule. I've been wanting to get on that. For a while I'd been aiming for a M/W/F schedule for the horror review blog, but that doesn't seem sustainable. For now, when I have 20-some reviews written, that's perfectly reasonable, but once the backlog is gone, I don't know that I could commit to three movies and reviews each week. At one time that was very possible, but maybe not now. Twice a week sounds more reasonable to me, that it'd be frequent enough that there's a reasonable amount of content, but not so much I can't keep up. I was considering Mondays and Thursdays as update days.

That does mean I should get on watching horror movies again. Not that that's a huge hardship. Seems like two a week should fit in somewhere!

Unrelated: I slept for almost twelve hours last night. It actually didn't throw my whole day off, though I still have been tired for much of the day. Considering I've been around at least two sick people in the last few days, I'm not questioning it if my body thinks I need some rest.

Also, one week before I start my internship!

The NutriBullet will make it so you're ready to go again in seconds! And this is after it's pulverized your nuts and done something with vibrations! Also, they keep mentioning how it cures low sex drive! (It's a blender that they desperately want you to believe is not a blender.) It'll cure every disease known to man by liquefying your food! Because people can't digest solid food! And the fact that they're telling people to replace meals with kale smoothies has nothing to do with the fact they claim they've had health benefits: nope, it's all because the food has been pulverized. Because cell walls.

You can buy a DVD called Ballistic Backsides! (Which I assume is trying to cash in on the "what the fuck, I thought I was buying porn!" demographic. But instead, it's a workout DVD!) It's by someone famous that I've never heard of, but would have to pay $1500 to work out with in person! She turns overweight moms into fitness models! Somehow working down to next to 0% body fat still allows you to have D-cup boobs! So that whole fitness model thing is definitely because of the workout, not anything to do with the plastic surgery! And also nothing to do with the hair extensions, professional makeup, and photoshopped pictures! But some guy said he sweats like a pig when he does the workouts, so I should be very excited! I love pig sweat! Also, a girl is very happy that her boyfriend loves her again now that she's a model!

There's some tooth-whitening product with an active ingredient that sounds suspiciously like Cowpox! (It was Calprex, but seriously.) And this will make you pretty enough to deserve attention from other people, I guess!

Also, you should buy a special oven thing, because your only other option was to cook chicken and such in the microwave, and microwaved poultry sucks! But cooking in a regular oven is SO HARD!

The wee hours of the morning were very informative, okay?

All kinds of tired. I'm sorry I've been shit about reading and commenting for the last several days... I'll try to get caught up soon. Just haven't had much time or energy recently.

I also woke up with a sore throat this morning, and that is not okay with me. I was sick from Thanksgiving until after Christmas, and I do NOT want to get sick again. Felt better as the day went on, though, so hopefully it's not actually an illness, or at least not one that'll get me really sick.

 Happy Groundhog Day! Just barely, lol. I don't want to miss a day, but trying to phone post sucks.
