For God's sake! Go with venetian blinds!!!

I am spending my morning, (recovering from lat night''s pre-birthday celebration) at home going thorugh my TIVO log, I'd forgotten I had even recoreded the The Cobweb (1955)

Ye gods what a mess of a movie, despite the impressive cast:

At an exclusive psychiatric clinic, the doctors and staff are about as crazy as the patients. The clinic head, Dr. Stewart McIver, thinks that it would be good therapy for his patients to design and make new drapes for the library. Mrs. Karen McIver, who is neglected by her hardworking husband (and a bit unbalanced herself), wants to make her mark on the clinic, so she orders new drapes. Miss Inch, the business manager, who has been with the clinic longer than anyone, sees this as an intrusion into her territory, and she too orders drapes. All this puts everyone in a dither, as they fight over drapes and clinic politics. Written by John Oswalt {}

Much Love, Much Thanks!!!

A long time ago in a lonely dusty cubical a bored little librarian started a blog, inspired by the many blogs he had been reading, not the least of which was, and still is, Stirred straight up with a twist, a beautiful, educational, and erudite piece of heaven on the web.

Today I was very touched by the following shout out from it's divine creator, the well dressed, easy on the eyes, Mr. TJB! Thanks babe.

Narcissistic question

Okay, here's my latest, chosen among oh SO many, rant.

Since I've been laid off I've been hitting the gym, let's face it in the past five years I've never given up a chance to hit the gym, pound the gym, try to beat the gym into a submissive pulp.

Also since I've been laid off I've actually had some free time. this means that I am able to go out and socialize. My new part time job waiting tables has gotten me out into the public view a bit more and thankfully after a long long hiatus my social life has picked up a bit. Now, I am not talking much here, but it's a hailstorm for me.

However, here is the fly in my self centered tube of ointment. I've been accused of being to body obsessed, both in viewing mine and potential candidates. So I'm posing the question thus

I've worked long and hard to put together what I assume is a decent package to vain is it of me to expect something similar in return?

Boynton Beach Police arrest woman in muder for hire plot

If all the cops in Boynton Beach look like this arresting officer it might be worth committing a crime....

In an attempt to get my depressed unemployed ass out of the house, I tried going out this past Friday night. Except for the dancing, the results were not dissimilar.....

'The Taking of Pelham 123' (1974)

While stuck at home today, recovering from a NOT very fun medical procedure I came across this oldie but goodie in my On Demand cable package.

I remember seeing it years ago on television and it's always been stuck in my memory banks. Featuring Walter Mathau, Jerry Stiller, Martin Balsam and a brief appearance by Doris Roberts, it still makes for good watching.
