Hubby and I watched Hellraiser last night. Back in our early days together, when this movie was fairly new, we used to watch it alot. It's probably been over 10 years since I'd last seen it and watching it last night made realize just how much I'd forgotten about it.
One really funny thing happened while watching though. If you've seen the movie you no doubt remember 'Pinhead.' Even if you've never seen the movie, maybe you've seen pics or heard about him.
He was kinda like the lead evil dude. Anyway, as I was watching I was drawn to him, he was so cool in a totally wrong way. There was one shot where he sort of emerges from the darkness behind the main girl and it was just...so cool. Right around this moment, hubby says something like "Hard to believe he became a sex symbol." Doh! I remember how 'popular' he was back in the day, and I laughed a bit, debating whether or not to admit to hubby what I'd just been thinking.
"I can believe it," I finally admitted.
"Really??" he asked.
"Yeah," I laughed, blushing. "I was *just* thinking how he's pretty hot for a creepy evil dude."
LOL - we both laughed. I was telling my movie watching co-worker about it today and she agreed. She said it was that he's tall and thin and (her word) "hard." It's his total control, deep voice, dark eyes. It's weird.
We carved pumpkins tonight. I think I blogged earlier about those pumpkin carving kits? Well, we used one for the first time tonight. They really *DO* make carving easy! Getting fine detail was amazingly simple. Our only complaint was the little 'knives' bend rather easily. They still worked even after bending but we always felt like they would snap at any time. They never did though. And we've never had such cool looking pumpkins!
We didn't get time to watch more Halloween-y movies tonight. Two more arrived from Netflix today. I guess we'll try squeezing them in tomorrow night. I still want to watch Charlie Brown - Great Pumpkin too. I keep thinking *today* is Halloween, and that tomorrow I can put all my stuff away and shift gears to Thanksgiving. lol...oops!
I'm off work for the next three days. When I go back it will be on the 12 hour shift. My feelings are so mixed up about it at this point. It's to the point where I'm all "Let's just get on with it already," but so many other things keep popping into my head. Example, my weekly Saturday morning shopping. That routine is shattered now. I'm only off every other Saturday now. *sigh* And things like having to take lunch to work now. I've always just gotten by with a munchy, snacky type thing and saved my big meal eating for when I got home. Won't be able to do that now, so I have to rethink how I'm going to do things like what I shop for, and how much, and what I need to take to work, and how many days in that particular week I'm on/off. Bleah. Also need to rethink what to have in the house for hubby and the boys to eat on days I'm not here to make supper. BLEAH.
There are several little perks and fun things I've been thinking about too. Dorky things like now that I have extra days off maybe I'll have reason to buy myself something other than plain jeans and tshirts to wear. Maybe I'll start wearing jewelry again. I can start baking again. Start writing again. Start watching crappy daytime TV again.
So yeah, right now I'm anxious to just get going on this new schedule so I can see which way things will go for me.
Hubby told me the other day that his workplace is hosting a dinner on Nov. 8. And of course, I'm working that day/evening. He said he's not sure what the dinner is for. He thought it might have something to do with complaints that they don't have their Christmas party anymore (last two or three years). Anyway, cocktails are at 6pm, dinner at 7pm. I suggested we could show up a little later...I'd get done with work at 7pm, get home, hop in the shower, then we could head out immediately. Not sure what we'll actually end up doing.
Alrighty, off to bed now.
