5 Scary Movies On Netflix You Shouldn’t Watch Alone


Halloween is approaching fast and we all want to snuggle in bed and watch scary movies while eating candy we bought ourselves. Here’s my top five horror/thriller Netflix movies based on plot, originality, suspense, and creepiness. Unfortunately, most Netflix horror movies aren’t very good, so I didn’t have much to pick from.

Creep 2

Rating: 9/10

You need to watch Creep 1 before watching this movie. Creep 1 is good, but the sequel is much better.

Synopsis: A video artist who craves shocking stories realises she has made a mistake when she meets a serial killer in a cabin, after he posts an ad on Craigslist.

First 10 min: The serial killer is up to his same old antics, but this time he is having a midlife crisis. Then walks in an attractive female who responds to his Craigslist ad and agrees to be his videographer for the day, but…

Song Lyric Sunday – We Are The Champions

Being Lydia!

I am taking a lot of liberties on this one even for me. But since Helen of This Thing Called Life One Word At Time chose “take/taking” as this week’s theme, I believe it is all relevant.

Yesterday my hubby and I went and saw “Bohemian Rhapsody”, the Queen biopic which opened Friday. Queen wrote the score to an important part of my life. I remember sitting in the back of a white pick-up truck in the middle of a prairie hay field with a friend singing all the words (and parts) to the song Bohemian Rhapsody like it was yesterday. And “We Are The Champions” was the anthem of the 70’s…well along with “We Will Rock You”, also by Queen.

I don’t want to give away any spoilers but “We Are The Champions” is played near the end of the film and the words are very relevant to Freddie…

My Week 176: First Thursdays, Naptime at the Movies Part Deux


First Thursday

Sometime in January, I made the fatal mistake of saying to one of the Directors at the secret agency, “Whatever happened to First Thursdays?” ‘First Thursdays’ is NOT, as you may have imagined, a clever code name for a secret agent, but refers to a social event that is held on the first Thursday of every month. After work on this special day, we would all head to the nearest bar for drinks and food. It was a great way to mix, mingle, and watch senior management get tipsy. The event had fallen by the wayside over the last year, but we had a lot of new staff, and for some crazy reason, I thought I should bring it up.

“Oh yeah!” he said. “That was always a lot of fun.” Then he said the 5 words that filled my heart with dread. “Why don’t you organize it?”

My A – Z Codependency Challenge – G

Diary of a Recovering Codependent

Gullible, Guilt

I use to be so gullible; I believed just about anything anyone would tell me. If Chicken Little would have told me, “the sky is falling”, I would have been right there with him, running in circles and trying to save everyone.

Somehow I believed that I was needed, wanted and loved based on the subtle (sometimes even blatant) lies someone would tell me. I could not see the manipulation in their words and actions. I could not sort out the truth from fiction as someone told me about their life or problems. I could not see how they were using me just to get what they wanted or needed. I “use to be” so gullible.

And because I was so gullible, I was always racked with guilt. All Chicken Little had to do was tell me that it was my fault the sky was falling and I would…

Happy 84th Birthday Rod McKuen


Today is the 84th birthday of the poet Rod McKuen. Anna Cottage requested we celebrate his life and I am more than happy to oblige. He was prolific. His words are part of the American cultural collective. The world is a better place because he was in it and still feels the loss that he has left.
