I Just Noticed...

...that this blog has an awful lot of pink on it. Not exactly the color one imagines when thinking of horror and the macabre. I guess I was trying to go for a twilight-ish (the time of day, not the crappy sparkling vampire movie) look and feel. I may need to change things around here soon.

So today was WIP Wednesday. At least, in other parts of the world is was. Here there is no WIP. More like WOT - works in thought. I keep thinking about various ideas and stories, but when I plant my butt down to write, I either fall asleep before getting too far or pound out a paragraph or three and upon reviewing them and deciding they suck, head for the big upstairs TV and my collection of horror films on DVD. I've been watching older movies this week for inspiration (it's worked before). This week included The Monster of Piedras Blancas from 1958 and Beast of Blood from 1970. The only thing the latter inspired me to do was fall asleep.

Anyway, all this babbling is just my way of saying that there is not much new in these parts, aside from new addiction to lemonade. I've been going through it like crazy and still can't get enough. I think I'll blame K.C. for that one. Maybe I'll go get another glass and then watch The Thing From Another World (1951).

Hmm, horror DVD's. Sounds like a good idea, Jameson. Why don't you get a pitcher of lemnonade, put out a few extra chairs and we'll all be right over.

I actually don't mind the pink on your blog. I had hardly noticed it until you mentioned it. As far as lemonade goes, make it a bullfrog and add vodka to it. Good for what ails you.

You got me hooked on cheese puffs, it's only fair that I return the favor. :)

I like the pink. It's not a girly pink at all. It's sort of menacing, actually.

I was the same way with peach ice-tea. Then it started to give me heart burn : P Getting old is blowfull.

Menacing pink!

I have to admit, I never noticed the pink until you pointed it out but now I'm waiting for you to grace us with a pink background. If anyone pulls you up on it, maybe you could say it's the colour of the inside of your eyelid, want me to pluck one out and show you. :)

Yeah, I always thought it was pink as in "bloodshot eyes" pink. Menacing, yes?
