8 Things About Me!!

I was tagged by Thomas at http://tappitytappity.blogspot.com/

Here are the rules: a. Each player lists 8 facts/habits about themselves.

b. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning before those facts/habits are listed.

c. At the end of the post, the player then tags 8 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

Okay, here are 8 random things about me:

1.) I was planning to go to medical school after college to become a psychiatrist, but I changed my mind after realizing that I would have to cut into cadavers as well! :*(

2.) I write mostly novels, but I also write screenplays, short stories, poetry, children's stories, etc. I just like writing! :*)

3.) Horror is my favorite genre---period, but I love Mafia crime dramas.

4.) I was a guest on the Iyanla Vanzant show in 2001 after appearing in an article in my local newspaper. One of her producers called me, and I flew to New York to be on the show 20 days after 9/11! In case you missed that---I was on a PLANE 20 days after 9/11!

5.) I had a dream a few years ago about a classmate I didn't really associate with. I dreamt that she died after she was chased by Death in a deserted western town for about 5 minutes. And she did die---about 5 months later from a rare blood disorder! Spooky!
6.) I have been writing for SEVERAL years. I wrote my first short skit in the 8th grade---and got an 'A'!
7.) I love to shop!
8.) Bug Bunny is my favorite cartoon character.
Okay, there you have it; 8 things about me. Now I have to tag 8 unsuspecting victims, I mean participants:

Creepshow 3

Hello kiddies! Just from reading the title I'm sure that you can gauge my excitement when I saw this in the video store, right? Er, well I lost that enthusiasm as I watched this overwhelmingly boring piece of crap. I should have known not to rent it when I did not see Stephen King or George Romero any where on the label---I have committed a most grievous sin.

As you may remember, Creepshow I (1982-my favorite) was directed by George Romero, and the stories and the screenplay were written by Stephen King. Creepshow II (1987-love this as well) was directed by Michael Gornick and Stephen King provided the stories, while George Romero wrote the screenplay. So when I saw a 3rd installment on the shelf at my local video store, I was soooo giddy!

Creepshow 3 sucked---it just did. It was directed by husband and wife, writing/directing/producing team, Jim Dudelson and Ana Clavell. I read that they also "created" a sequel for "Day of the Dead." For the love of God, Hollywood needs to stop these people! I won't give a spoiler alert because the movie will spoil itself. I'll briefly go over the five horrible vignettes as they appear in order on the film:

Creepshow 3:

"Alice" - The story of a bratty teenager who hates her mad scientist neighbor who created some stupid universal remote that can bend time and space. When her dad presses the button, she ends up with an African-American family. He presses it again, and oh no, her family is now Hispanic. Sounds racist and stupid. (It goes down hill from there if that is possible)

"Rachel, the Call Girl" - The story of a serial killer call girl who gets a call to meet up with another killer who happens to be a vampire. (Ooooh! Woweee!)

"Professor Dayton's Wife" -The story of the mad scientist from the first story who decides to get married. He is a prankster and two of his students think that he made his bride-to-be, and they dismember her, but she's a real woman. (**Sigh**)

"The Haunted Dog" -The story of a partying, butthole of a doctor who drops a hotdog on the ground and then gives it to a homeless guy who was hungry. The homeless guy dies from the contaminated hotdog but doesn't haunt the doctor until the end of the vignette. (WTF??)

"The Radio" -The story of a part-time security guard who allows a radio to tell him to kill a man when the guy discovers he stole money from him. (Blah!)

All of the stories were supposedly tied together somehow---they were, but quite badly. The "directors" apparently have a tendency to use alot of prostitutes, pimps, and homeless people in their stories. Maybe they couldn't think of anyone else to use? Don't rent this crap! EVER!!
