No Nightmares here

I took James to see the new "Nightmare on Elm Street" last night. Note to parents of tweens-there's no nudity, a few scenes with the "F" word, and a few scenes of extreme gore. It was okay. Well, no it wasn't because I am not much of a blood and gore horror movie fan. Give me old Dracula movies with Bella Lugosi any day. That said, what never ceases to amaze me is how often people talk, OUT LOUD, during a movie. I rarely make a comment but it is frustrating to sit next to someone who is chatting with their friends and TEXTING on their little brightened screen that keeps pulling my attention from the movie. Yes, I am one of "those people" who wishes you would talk with your friends before/after the movie and not make me an unwitting participant in what "Joe told Kelly yesterday..." That's not to say that I mind someone saying,"Don't give her the shot! Then she'll fall asleep and be dead!" I don't mind that at all. It's someone talking to the movie, about the movie...and it's actually pretty funny, most of the time.

James swore he wasn't going to fall asleep, then fell promptly to sleep on the car ride home. Those of you who know James well know how much fun I had dragging my little sleep walkin', sleep talkin' (er yelling) man into the house.

Today, I am being rather lazy. We are down to staples for groceries and I think we'll stay that way til at least Monday. I am trying to get a bit of ChaCha guiding in. Except one can only handle the word "Wat" (should have been what) so many times.

It is hot here in Texas World, which could mean a dip in the pool later on. If I remember where I put my swimsuit.

It's good to be blogging again Kesha. I've missed you too. I was feeling a bit at a loss and didn't feel I had anything to put here that wasn't wallowing. I'm really happy to be working at this again. I hope you are doing okay.

What a fun night out with your boy. Um, well, except the sleep walking/yelling and the inconsiderate idiot next to you. Sheesh. :o(

Hope you got that dip in the pool. NEVER feel guilty for doing nothing--it's good for you. :oP

I hope the visit with your mom and grandma goes well. I'm a bit worried about grandma...:fingers crossed:

I love the title of your blog. I've been to a number of Seances - or their equivalent - over the years and have laughed at one point during all of them. But I never went into the event planning to laugh, it is just that every single time something really funny happened and I just couldn't help myself.
