I’ve been trying to get the flow back, blog wise. Since being on holiday and then my birthday soon after it’s been a struggle. I think I possibly overdosed on horror on the run up to Halloween. Going back to work after some time off due to a breakdown also had an impact. Although, work is what should not be named due a strict social media policy. You’d think I work in MI5 not a small town library. That’s one of the reasons I started this blog. I needed something to focus on that wasn’t work related….because I get work obsessed and lose myself. It was also a place to put down my thoughts without worrying I may be misrepresenting the library service or judged by colleagues and acquaintances. I needed a place to be me.
Now, if anybody out there has a job for me, I am looking for a change…but as long it’s from home and introvert friendly.
However, some horror did creep in last week.
We finished American Horror Story: Cult. I raved about this at the beginning but you may have noticed a slow descent in AHS silence. I think once Ally discovered the cult and joined, the suspense and horror was gone. No more creepy clowns or mysterious trucks, no more mind games…well some but not enough. The Valerie Solanas addition felt a ridiculous route for the story line to take, also I dislike Lena Dunham ( I don’t know why, just an irrational dislike). I hate to say this about my beloved AHS but I stopped anticipating the next episode. The boy was disgusted by the ending, he thought it was terrible. In fact, he’s still complaining now.
The first season of Salem has pulled us in, up to episode 8. Witches, magic and devilishness has captured me more than Sleepy Hollow could. It has also made me start listening to Marilyn Manson again…if that’s a good thing.
Introduced the boy to Silence of the Lambs last night. He did wander off to make a sandwich half way through….obviously the beginning didn’t capture his generation z ADHD brain so I had to reel him back, sandwich in hand, rewind and make him watch the important story bits. However, after this he was hooked and impressed by the storytelling and the face disguise. He was more concerned by the fate of Precious than the girl but at least he took something from the movie.
We watched Other Halves, which I’ve already reviewed and Creep, the review for which will come out tomorrow.
Currently, I’m reading Hekla’s Children by James Brodgen, Rituals by Kelley Armstrong and The Magickal Family by Monica Crosson.
My brains on hyper speed at the minute, so I might get a good week out of it.
