“You will not remember what I show you now, and yet I shall awaken memories of love… and crime… and death…”

Read yesterday’s description of the weather from Coffee, and you’ll find it works for today too. My house was cold when I woke up. The sun is shining yada yada yada.

I have no ambition, but my car is full of trash so I haven’t any choice but to go to the dump today as it is closed the next two days. But then again…

I have ordered breakfast to be delivered, eggs Benedict with home fries and what looked like a tomato flower. I’m tracking the driver, and he is on the way here having already picked up my breakfast. I have never before ordered a breakfast delivered, but I did mention my lack of ambition today.

In honor of Halloween, I am wearing my bony hand earrings and watching old horror movies. I asked my remote to find Halloween movies, and it did, movies even I won’t watch. The first was Attack of the Killer Donuts which now joins tomatoes on the killer food group list. Underneath this movie was a thumbnail of movies other people also watched besides the killer donuts. I was curious. I am no longer curious. The list included a movie called The Thingy: Confessions of a Teenage Placenta. It was described as, “The heartbreaking story of a living placenta that is raised as a human, a christian, a soldier.” It is a Belgian movie listed on IMDB as tragedy, comedy and horror. It sounds gross and strange so I’ll pass; instead, I am watching The Mummy, the original with Boris Karloff. I watch it every Halloween season along with Frankenstein, Dracula and The Wolfman, my favorite horror movies from the 1930’s. They used to scare me when I was a kid, and I loved them for that. It has been a long time since they’ve scared me, but it doesn’t matter. I still love them anyway. The mummy is walking.

Breakfast is moving fast on the mid-cape.

    Cold and sunny again today but also windy so it has felt much colder than it actually was. We didn’t even get close to 50F so a winter jacket was needed every time I went outside.

    I can’t imagine that we can order breakfast over here 🙂 🙂 Especially not this far from the rest of the world. I would have liked to try it though even though I really don’t like cooked food for breakfast (except for porridge then).

    Only bad movies shown over here and it was a long time since I watched one of those old horror movies. They have periods when they show all of them but it was long ago now so perhaps it’s time soon again, I do hope so 🙂

    Have a great day!

      Hi Christer,
      I never did go out, but I could feel the cold when I let Henry back inside the house. I wanted to take a nap but decided to hang in and watch a movie, The Trial of the Chicago 7. The dump will have to wait until Wednesday.

      I am surprised at how many restaurants now go through delivery systems. There were only a few which delivered but now Door Dash and the rest make many more restaurants available.

      With all of the channels I have, I am bound to find at least one good old movie to watch, The new horror movies are too bloody for me.

      It is already getting dark.

    Hi Kat,

    Ok, how did the eggs Benedict survive the trip? I can’t imagine reheating soft poached eggs nor hollandsise sauce and having it come out of the microwave and be the same as fresh. I await your report.

    I’ll bet the picture above is of Karloff from the movie the Mummy.

    One of my all time favorite movies is Mel Brooks, “Young Frankenstein”. The cast is fantastic and the lines are fabulous. Gene Wilder, Madeline Kahn, Chloris Leachman and Marty Feldman, Terri Garr and Peter Boyle. Anything by Mel Brooks makes me laugh hysterically regardless how many times I’ve seen the movie. I think they used the same phony props during the giving life scene to the monster that was used in the Boris Karloff original movie. Is “Confessions of a Teenage Placenta”, a “D”or an “F” movie? 🙂

    Today, my daughter and I hunted around trying to find the “Painted Rock Trail” here in Grapevine. We didn’t choose the right portion of the trail but we will try again next week.

    Today it warmed into the low 80° range as the sun came out but with a continuous south wind.

      Hi Bob,
      The eggs Benedict were still hot when they arrived. They had tons of flavor and perfect yolks. I haven’t ever seen so many diced onions in restaurant friend breakfast potatoes before. They were tasty.

      It is from The Mummy. Bela Lugosi as Dracula also had great eyes. Those black and white films didn’t need special effects. The characters were fearful on their own.

      That was really neat. History is vied in so many different ways.
      One of the local libraries here has a short but similar trail. It was a summer project for the kids a few years back.

      Chilly today, warmer tomorrow.
