Female Computer Trouble

Ding Dong the friggin virus is GONE!  Yay yay yay!!

Hey, do you remember the movie “Female Trouble” with Divine? It was one of the old John Waters Baltimore flicks. It’s one of those things that stained my mind as a young impressionable teenager, and to this day I cry “liquid eyeliner!” in a very dramatic and drag queenish way.

I have no idea what that has to do with my computer being completely dead for the past week. It’s just one of those, you know, thoughts that come up now at random moments, freaking me out and occasionally making me laugh.

So what have I been doing all this time that I’ve been PuterLess? Well, in addition to the usual mom duties, the trips to Unemployment, the tattoo being finished, I’ve watched TV and movies. Actually watched them. Weird.

 

Okay, well tonight the Kiddo and I began to watch “Roman Holiday”. Yeah, the one with Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck. She’s loving it. We were interrupted by her bedtime, but this will continue tomorrow. It’s making her want to go to Italy, which would be awesome if we had the money.

I also indulged in some horror. Oh, it was fun! This was thanks to Tyson Carter of the truly fabulous blog Head In A Vice.

The Loved Ones – Lovely Australian horror. I just couldn’t get away from my American brain, and kept thinking how amazing it was that the boy in it looked just like Kristin Stewart, and the father of psycho girl looked just like Iggy Pop. I’m an idiot. It was bloody, gory, super sick and lots of fun!

Midnight Meat Train – I think this is the best title ever. I mean, it could be some kind of wacky porn movie, or a total slasher type horror flick. Naturally it’s the latter, and it stars Bradley Cooper and Vinny Jones. Was it great? No. Of course not. Was it entertaining? Totally. I just hope Vinny didn’t get paid per word.

The other night I couldn’t sleep due to the stupid antibiotics I’m on yet again for yet another sinus infection. So I watched the entire Crimson Petal And The White mini series on Encore. I loved it. You get sick to death of hookers with a heart of gold, but a hooker with a great brain who can write is quite another thing all together. Loved it.

Frankenstein, of course. I love that movie. The book is my favorite and yes, I totally get how Hollywood this was, but it was great.  I love Boris Karloff, and I still think he was underrated as an actor.

So, anyway, that’s what I’ve been up to. How about you??
