Still Alive

Man, did this surprise sore throat-stuffed nose-bad cough thing really knock me on my ass. I've been pretty much laid up the last three days. Sunday was the same as Saturday, with me sleeping and watching movies all day. I did feel well enough to stagger to the computer and pound out 1600 words on a new zombie story, finishing it. Today was more of the same: sleeping and watching movies. However, today I was feeling much better and spent more time at the computer, editing that zombie story several times before sending it off. Tomorrow I hope to be feeling good enough to be a bit more productive and actually enjoy my vacation. Just for the hell of it, here's the list if films I watched yesterday and today:

Kronos (1957)
The Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954)
The Evil of Frankenstein (1964)
The Dark Knight (2008)
The Land Unknown (1957)
The Deadly Mantis (1957)
Darkness Falls (2003)

As you can see, I really love scifi and horror flicks from the 50's. They can be quite inspiring. One of the stories accepted last month was partially inspired by two old 50's flicks. Anyway, I hope everyone had a good Labor Day. Time to go drink more juice, pick out a movie and flop out for the night.

Glad to hear you're somewhat on the mend. That's a crap way to spend your vacation. Ooh, Darkness Falls...nothing like a good 'tooth fairy' story to cheer you up!

Not that I want the illness, I really don't, but sacking out and watching those movies would be nice. I need a vacation from my life.

So old movies have healing properties?

I would call that a research project. Sounds like fun.

Where do you find these movies. My local video/dvd shops have appalling horror sections.

Danielle - I buy them from Amazon.

What a crappy way to spend Labor Day Weekend, but I'm glad you're getting better.

Actually, lying around doing nothing except watching movies sounds like a great way to spend a long weekend. Except for the being sick part.

Danielle Ferries said...

Of course. Duh! Guess where I'm headed.

I'm sorry that you're sick, but man. You should just shove over and let the rest of us pile in beside you. It would be a fantastic horror fest.
