All Work and No Play...

Sunday is my day. Ben works on Sundays, so it's a great opportunity for me to spend some extra time at the gym, do some shopping and catch up on my MTV and VH1 reality craziness. Today is an especially gloomy day in Portland. Shocker, right?

I was changing channels today and noticed that The Shining is on. Now, this movie scares the shit out of me, and I've seen it at least 1,569 times. At least. You'd think it would become predictable, and maybe a little less frightening. Oh but no. Those freaky twins, the way Jack Nicholson slowly goes totally crazy. But the part that freaks me out the most is when Danny suddenly sits up in bed and screams "REDRUM! REDRUM!" in the middle of the night. I don't like unexpected, much less freaky things happening in the middle of the night. My sleep needs to be un-interrputed. If I were his mom I think I'd go crazy right along with Jack. This has to be the best scary movie ever.

I have found that if I change it to VH1 during commercials, Flavor Flav's show can easily offset that creepy feeling brought on by The Shining. You know what time it is. FLAVOR FLAV!!!

I watched the Shining yesterday too!! Awwwww...it's like we watched it together....creepy. Anywho. I was so excited when I say it and then I was super duper excited when I also got to watch the Good the Bad, and the Ugly. It's like it was Lynne day on AMC!

Yes, very scary! I think Flavor Flav looks even more scary, though. YIKES!
