Happy St. Fuglin's Day! Or whatever.
From my Friends page it sounds like everybody had a pretty good St. Paddy's day and a pretty lousy Friday morning. I did too. I went to my parents' house for corned beef and cabbage. The drive home took about twice as long as usual in the snow (oh yeah, for those not in Wisconsin, it snowed last night) and I passed a couple of accidents. I got home around 9:00, and found that Nate -- the party animal/good ol' boy himself -- had already gone to bed. Which was fine. He isn't home tonight, and I imagine he's out with everybody else who decided not to drive through the snow.
I wasn't feeling so hot when I got up this morning, but I went to work anyway. I set myself a certain quota of work to get done, and by the time I finished it, I was feeling better.
My eyes ache, so tonight I'm staying in to catch some of the sleep I've been missing out on. Right now I'm kind of vegging in front of The House on Haunted Hill (the crappy original version, not the crappy remake). I'm not exactly sure what I've made for dinner, but the three main ingredients are brie, garlic and tomatoes. It's pretty good on pita bread.
Anyway, if you're looking for something to occupy your time, try The Museum of Bad Art.

Current Music: The House on Haunted Hill
I saw The House on Haunted Hill on BETA! When I was 10!
Nothing like a man dissolving down to his skeleton to give a 10 year old sweet dreams for the night. That was that movie, right?
That's the one. It's not a terribly good movie, but it's fun and I like Vincent Price.
I do too. Last movie I saw that I recognized him in? The Fly. When I was 10, I didn't know who/what Vincent Price was. I didn't even get the Simpsons joke for a while.
Any good? The fly is about $10 everywhere, and I always consider picking it up. Vincent Price seems to me to be a lot like Chrisopher Lee -- 90% of the movies he's in are crap, but he's terrific.
It's... I'm not quite sure how to describe it because my experience with it was through Cable TV, and commercials interrupeted. I'm kind of torn. It was on late at night, I wasn't in the best of moods for watching something late at night, but I wasn't able to sleep (because I was in pain) so I watched the fly, 3-4 times about a year ago now.
I'd recommend it with a caveat: I watched it and liked it in a non-normative state of mind. Though, I do think it would have been a highly effetive horror movie for the 50's were I alive then.

Saint Fuglin's Day
Hello fellow Fuglinite!
I am Karl West-Ramos and I run the website Saint Fuglin: Separating the Man from the Myth. Beleive it or not I found you by looking on Google for Fuglin. News spreads fast, eh! It is so wonderful to me to see other people celebrating the legacy of this rarely remembered Saint. Do you or your family have any traditions surrounding Fuglin's Day? I would like to compile a new website about Saint Fuglin's celebrations through the world!

Oh yes. I celebrate every St. Fuglin's neck-deep in mint jelly. You?
