Friday Fantasies: A Double Feature

Although I've enjoyed working on my latest travel guide, Moon Florida Keys, I have to admit that I'm missing my regular blogging schedule – which, rest assured, will be back in full force once I've finished this latest project. Of course, while the guide has taken over my life as of late, I've certainly made time for fun – realizing, of course, that, without some necessary down time, my brain would pretty much explode.

So, guess what?! After expressing my desire for a movie break last Friday, I'm finally headed to the theater with my hubby. In just a few moments, we'll be on our way to the Krikorian in Monrovia (a small, picturesque town in southern California) to see a double feature of Shutter Island and The Crazies – two spooky films that just might make me forget about my impending deadline... at least for a little while.

Wow, I just watched the trailers for those. If I saw those movies I would never sleep. Period. Ever. Again.

I hate horror movies. Anything scary like that! I hope you're not as sensitive as I am! And that you get a break from you're deadline worries. :(

I totally understand, Michelle. My mom thought I was crazy, too (no pun intended), when I told her what we were seeing tonight.

But me and the hubby sure love us some horror flicks. We find them exhilarating forms of escapism. And yet I often have nightmares... wonder why that is... ;-)

Good to hear that you're getting out and having some fun!

Cool! Have a friend in Glendora (who's also a native Louisianian...works for Monrovia). Enjoy CA!!

PS Always an open invite to OR...

Deb - Yep, it was a good weekend all in all. We enjoyed both movies - and then last night, we got the chance to attend a LOST panel with a good friend. It's part of Paley Fest, an annual event in Los Angeles that celebrates television with cast/crew panels. And one of my favorite actors was on last night's panel. It was awesome!

Becky - Ooh, I know where Glendora is. What a small world. And thanks, as always, for the invitation to Oregon. I keep trying to convince Dan to go this spring (after our adventures in L.A.), but he's a hard one to persuade. The stinker.
