The Road to Hell is Paved with Good Intentions...

Well, I still have some more movies to post but I am not sure that I am going to make my 31 Horror Movies in 31 Days goal. I had to return to Chicago to deal with a family emergency, and my viewing schedule got all messed up. Damn it all! I tried to watch some scary movies at home, but I was forced to sleep on my parents' couch (with the dog on my chest) and sometimes my father likes to stay up late watching "Gettysburg" which is fine, except that he knows every line and it's not really a scary movie. Oh, and it has a lot of horses. Why are horses bad, you ask? Well, remember the aforementioned dog? You know, the one that was sleeping on my chest? Well, said dog either really likes or really hates horses. We're not sure. Regardless, when he sees one on the TV he jumps up, goes flying at the TV and barks loudly at the horses. When they're not on screen, he has to check behind to the television to see where they've gone to. Eventually he calms down and goes back to where he was (sleeping on me). Unfortunately for me, there are a ton of horses in "Gettysburg," so my night consisted of the dog jumping on and off of my chest. Who knew that such a cutie pie could cause so much trouble?

Never fear, though, I am still diligently watching horror flicks and will update with all my viewings and my thoughts after Halloween. I know, you can't wait, right? Patience is a virtue, dear friend.

However, apropos of nothing, I will share with you this awesome vintage dress that I found at the dollar sale over the weekend. It was a dollar! It's awesome! I can't wait to wear it! A friend is having a party at a swanky Hollywood club next month...what do you think? Too much? Not enough? Hey, Elisabeth, it's not 1970?

You can just ignore Ol' Mr. Bones on the doorknob. He's just hanging out until All Hallow's Eve.

Your dog sounds too funny! I fostered a reservation puppy several years ago when I lived in AZ, and when we brought her home, she would calm down when I turned on Lady and the Tramp. It was the weirdest thing... She would stop crying and sit quietly for several minutes, and then finally go to sleep.

I think the dress is lovely, too; the price makes it lovelier!

Cute dress! And the dog story is adorable.
