October is Here

Originally uploaded by kelsokraft

These past few weeks have been seriously busy at work. But I am trying to post more often. Especially since it is nearing October, which for me is Horror Movie Month.

I have a few movies I am ordering from Netflix, however, most of my stuff will be from my DVR which has a whole lot of horror movies just waiting to be watched. I thought I’d be able to plow through them, but with the fall TV line up, it might prove difficult. I’m starting this weekend.

I wanted to also start my Horror Books this weekend as well, but “Mockingjay” by Suzanne Collins is next on my TBR list and it is a library book, so that is first, however, it should take me only about 4 days to read it, then on to the Horror.

Fall Lineup

“House” will be back on Monday, I’m excited. This season looks good.

“Bones” is not coming back until November. It sounds promising as we left Bones preggers.

“The X-Factor” is holding my interest, slightly. It seems almost like Idol, which is fine. The auditions ended last night, so now we see how the competition fairs. A British cyberbuddy told me it is very similar to Idol.

“The New Girl” was cute. I watched it for the first time last week, I have this week’s taped. I’ll give it a few more weeks to see if I will continue with it. I like sit-coms, but they have to be real funny.

“2 Broke Girls” is a funny sit-com, I will watch this one.

“Two and a Half Men” in the era of Ashton will be watched for sure.

“Terra Nova” came on this week for the first time. I thought it was promising. I’m not usually in to those type of futuristic dystopian/utopian films, but it sounded different, and it was by Spielberg, so it automatically gets a chance. I’ll be watching this too. Of course these ALL come on Monday night (Men and Girls and Terra). So I cannot watch “Dixie” another show I wanted to get in to.

“Project Runway” is still running, I’m hoping it will be done by the time “Bones” comes on, because it is really going to use up a lot of DVR space, as X-Factor is on Thursday’s.

So, as you see, there is no time to watch movies during the week. Friday, Saturday and Sunday are the only days I can really do my movies.

Christmas time is so much easier. Things go into hiatus.

Also Autumn decorating will start Saturday.

Well I'm a little disgusted about this stie:

I mentioned it in my last post.  They have banned me, for no reason.  Especially since I never was able to finish my registration.  They apparently have the moderators put you on manually, but I never was, I was just banned.  Really?

So I am revoking my endorsement of this site.

There are others.

Instead here are a few other really nice sites, with people who aren't weird.

August / September reads

Can I just interject how much it sucks not to be able to post from work!  It is putting a damper in my blogging.  When I get home I am so tired, and my brain is fried, I can’t think.

I was looking for information on more Christmas movies that will be out this year.  And while I was surfing I came across a board that is “Year Round”. 

Pretty cool, so now I have two Christmas places, there and The True Book Addicts Christmas page

You’re never too old to love Christmas.

But the next thing on my plate is Halloween.  As I mentioned in a previous post, I plan to watch more Classic Horror films this year.  However, I’ve been taping to the DVR a lot of modern Horror movies. 

And as far as Horror reading I will read DRACULA and THE EXORCIST this year.  I’ve been trying to read DRACULA for years, and never get to it.  THE EXORCIST is a new addition, but I will read it this year.  If I only read 2 books in October, these will be them.

I’ve actually accelerated my reading the past few months.  This is how August and September (so far) re looking:


40. Angels in My Hair - Lorna Byrne
41. The Master Key System - Charles Haanel
42. Excuses Begone! - Wayne Dyer
43. The Hunger Games - Suzanne Collins
44. Connecting With Your Angels - Doreen Virtue
45. How to Get What you Really, Really Want - Wayne Dyer / Deepak Chopra
46. The Ultimate Happiness Perscription - Deepak Chopra
47. The Secrets of Power of Intention - Wayne Dyer
48. The Science of Being Great - Wallace Wattles
49. Michael Vey - Richard Paul Evans
50. The Power of Your Subconscious Mind - Joseph Murphy


51. We Have Always Lived in this Castle - Shirley Jackson
52. Rodzina - Karen Cushman (YA RECOMMEND)
53. Applying the 10 Secrets for Success and Inner Peace - Wayne Dyer
54. Please Look After Mom - Kyung-Sook Shin
55. Crazy: Notes on and Off the Couch - Rob Dobrenski
56. The Blue Zones - Dan Buettner (RECOMMEND)
57. The Book of Secrets - Deepak Chopra
58. Reinventing the Body, Resurrecting the Soul - Deepak Chopra
59. Catching Fire - Suzanne Collins (RECOMMEND)
60. Discover Your Genius - Michael J. Gelb

As you can see, there are a lot of self-improvement books listed.  I get in my moods, and read a lot of the same type of book for weeks.  I’m just about over that now, I do have a few more books in that genre I want to read, but now other things will be read.  I put my recommendations alongside the ones I enjoyed the most.  I highly recommend THE HUNGER GAME SERIES.  I’ve only read book 1 and 2 so far.

Check back soon to see how I am doing with my Horror Books and Movies.

Both kids are back in school.  My son has the beginnings of Carpel Tunnel Syndrome.  He’s on the computer at least 12 hours a day and hours at a time.  He is a computer major, so that doesn’t help any.

Still temping at the same job. It goes well.

The new Fall season started. I’m checking out the new shows.  I caught “Two and a Half Men” on Monday with Ashton, it was so funny. I like the show anyway, and wasn’t sure how Ashton would fit in, but he is so funny, he can fit in anywhere.

Nothing else to report.

Movie Review

I watched this movie yesterday.  It is called "Sympathy for Delicious".  Mark Ruffalo has been talking about this movie on Facebook for months.  He plays a Catholic Priest.  A homeless disabled man has the gift of healing.  Although all he really wants is to be healed.  He is given this gift and how he (and others) use it (or abuses it) is the main theme of this movie.  Will he ever realize that his gift can truly be a gift? Selfless and given out of love?

At first I wasn't sure where this movie was going.  It seemed to be an ordinary film, with a pretty extraordinary cast.  I was thinking this was going to be a waste of talent, but I was not disappointed.

I saw some very negative reviews for this movies but looking back I think maybe these people just didn't get it.

I putting this one in my "Catholic Movie" must see lists. However, you don't have to be Catholic or Christian or Religious to enjoy this.
