Expressing Scary Movies and Books

    I should point out that I do not scare easily. I’m the one in the movie theater laughing at those of you who jump when Freddy, Jason, Mike, Chucky, or Hannibal show up when you (you, not me) least expect it.   However, there was a scene in the movie The Devil’s Advocate …

Express One Love of Autumn

    Confession: I’m a leafer.   Alright, I’m not as bad as some of the other leafers out there. I have never taken a long trip in order to see fall foliage. This is probably because I grew up with it in my own backyard. The way all the leaves change from green into …

October 2014 goals post – hop toward autumn

  Here’s something about culture, about how our society seems to be:   We measure our progress and our success based on how well it advances our independence.   It starts with babies. The milestones of interest are largely holding a bottle, walking, talking, and using the potty. Each of these propels a person toward …

Where I read and write

  I’m a fan of reading on the couch. Or, in the case of Kindle books, reading in bed and in the bathroom.   Writing though… I suppose the actual work is done sitting at my desk. But a special place, where a pen meets the page and the words become illegible as they pour …

Express Yourself with a Childhood Toy

Megaminx It might seem strange, but this is what I took with me on long car rides, out to dinner to places where people sit around for an hour before eating, and to the homes of relatives that had no children and thus no toys. This is much like a Rubik’s Cube, except that it’s …

Express Yourself with a Scary Movie

1h33m38s Granted, I saw this movie when I was younger, so that is probably what freaked me out. Well, that and the “based on a true story” stuff. Horror movies in general do not freak me out. Most make me laugh.

Express Yourself with a Celebrity Twin

Once upon a time in the 1990’s, between the Boyd movie theater and Scarlett O’Hara’s club in Bethlehem, PA, there was a music shop. (I’ve forgotten the name.) The woman who worked there at night looked like Julia Roberts. She had the Pretty Woman hair. She even had the same laugh. Naturally, she didn’t see it. …
