Three Things I Have An Irrational Fear Of

1. Birds. I hate all birds. All they do is fly and shit and spread diseases. Getting caught beneath a flock of low flying birds is very near my idea of Hell. I have no idea where this fear came from, all I know is that if a bird heads in my direction, I will react the way most women in horror movies react: with screaming, flailing of limbs, and plain old-fashioned terror.
                                            This is my idea of Hell on Earth

                                                                             The face of terror

2. Clowns. This in no way makes me unique, many people are afraid of clowns. Any glimpse of a clown (statue, painting, dressed up man) sends an involuntary shudder up my spine. Because of this, I rather enjoy horror movies with clowns in them.
                                                                  Yep, terrifying

                                                                  One more, just because Tim Curry is a god

3. Large Worms. Again, no idea where this fear comes from. But I do recall, in vivid detail, dissecting large earthworms in Earth Science class in 7th grade. We studied live worms as well, and my foot long earthworm kept rearing up like a snake, trying to escape the pan it was in. No fear of snakes, but a big old fear of long, squirmy slimy worms.
                                              Kill It With Fire


 Bonus:  Baby Monkeys/Gorillas. They look, and act, too much like human babies. It creeps me the fuck out.
                                                               See? Looks almost like a portrait print from K-Mart. *Bwuah*

Three(Current) Favourite Quentin Tarantino Characters

1. Character-  GoGo Yubari
    Actor-  Chiaki Kuriyama
    Movie-  Kill Bill V. 1 (2003)
How could you not love this adorable young sociopath in a school girl's uniform?

2. Character-  Jules Winnfield
    Actor-  Samuel L. Jackson
    Movie-  Pulp Fiction (1994)
The Bible verse spouting hitman who recognizes a miracle when it happens, and leaves it all behind to "walk the earth. You know, like Caine in Kung Fu."

3. Character-  Stuntman Mike McKay
    Actor- Kurt Russell
    Movie- Death Proof (2007)
His 70's throwback style, the sense of humour, and a beautifully feathered mullet. With as badass as he seems, his transformation from psycho to pussy after being shot in the arm is brilliant.

*Bonus- Character-  The Bride/Black Mamba/Beatrix Kiddo
               Actor-  Uma Thurman
               Movie-  Kill Bill V. 1 (2003)& V. 2 (2004)
A revenge-seeking, sword-wielding assassin plowing a bloody path to the door of the man who made her what she is. (Serious props to stuntwoman Zoe Bell go along with this selection)

Three Reasons I Have Not Updated In Two Months

1. I got married in October, and so there was an influx of stress and planning that took precedence over this blog.

2. I had surgery. Which also added a great deal of stress into my life, as my husband and I were also moving into a new house at the same time. I was pretty useless during the move.

3. Laziness. Who are we kidding, here? I could have made time for this, and simply did not. But I do intend to try and do better. This post is mostly to, hopefully, "shame" me into posting more frequently. We shall see if it works.
