TMI Tuesday – Goats on a Boat
Well, I’ve finally gotten around to cleaning up this place a bit. Added a few links. Updated my website in a few tiny ways. Nothing big. I did finally push that page-meter a bit … you’ll notice it no longer says Goddess of Beauty. Yeah, I’m no longer sure what I’m calling that book. But in order to keep the same acronym, I’ve started referring to it as “Goats on a Boat.” Because, you see, they’re on a boat… and there are goats. It may have a new title soon.
And of course, there’s an allusion there to Snakes on a Plane. Which I haven’t seen. It’s not a conscious oversight – I can count on one hand the number of movies I’ve seen in the past year or two. Mr. Dare and I have really got to get a date-night sitter for the Darelings more often. When I’m in the mood for a movie, I usually find myself popping in the same DVDs over and over again.
And so I ask you this Tuesday, what movie have you watched a truly embarrassing amount of times? And now you can’t say Casablanca or Gone With The Wind or something good. In order to be TMI, it must be an embarrassing movie.
Back in ye olde days of the VCR (remember Beta?) and before the days of Nintendo, my brother and I had a very few movies on tape and lots of time on our hands. Did we go outside and frolic in the clean Midwestern air? Of course not! We watched those same darn movies again and again and again.
And last week’s post on chest hair brought to mine one of those oft-watched films: the 80s classic, Teen Wolf. No, I’m not talking about that actual classic, I Was a Teenage Werewolf, starring Michael Landon. I’m talking about Michael J. Fox’s tour de force portrayal of a shaggy high-schooler who just wants to win the basketball game, get the girl, and use his big-bad-wolf-growly voice to buy some beer. We had that movie memorized, I kid you not.
Now that I think of this, and look at these pictures, two things come to mind:
1)This may explain my lukewarm feelings on paranormals.
2)Hello? Geico cavemen anyone?
