I am doing laundry without complaint, I am sipping a latte, and Faith and I are done with this damn puzzle. When our powers combine, we form a movie trivia force to be reckoned with... especially when you consider the fact that we don't even watch "Dark Movies." Now, that isn't to say we didn't spend a fair bit of time saying things like, "Monkey! Baby! Baby Monkey!" and "Big Damn Fish!" etc., but the salient point here is we are made of win.
Either way, dark and spooky isn't really our genre. teh_flatmate is actually quite easily frightened. She's punched me in the face before [I was pretending to sleep while she was searching for a DVD next to my bed, and then I sat bolt upright and in her direction while making a noise she refers to as "Demon Screech." I still think it's funny. She disagrees.], and we had to watch the Ring in small doses, with all the lights on, and in such a fashion that Faith wouldn't see any doors. It's adorable, I tell you.
She actually has three distinct things that scare her, and I think it's a good list.
- Children being creepy/moving unnaturally.
- Old people being mean.
- Gross/Evil things suddenly appearing out of dark spaces.
I have actually watched a fair few horror flicks in my day, and I just don't really like being able to call out all the points in the film when you know the actor/actress should have done something else (a.k.a used common sense and/or turned the light on before walking into a room) and would've been fine.
Anyway, I should probably go swap out my laundry and get back to work on my editing... but I have a squee-filled post for later, and maybe a music mix!
