I’ve really worked myself into a whirlwind for November. First, I thought about signing up for NaNoWriMo, even though I’ve never written fiction in my life. (Just not that creative.) Then I find NaBloPoMo, which is exactly what I need. So I announce I’m not going to do NaNoWriMo, and my friend Natalie (a published novelist, I might add), shames me into it. Ok, the shaming was in jest, but still, I did feel responsible. 🙂 So now I’ve started some half-assed attempt, but it’s really going to be crap. But at least I’ll be there to cheer Natalie and jade_kadir on.
I rented a Frankenstein movie to watch on Halloween. But by the time I’d finished rewatching True Blood (so I can write my review for SciFi Chicks) and Supernatural (except the final 2 scenes, which irritated me), and watched Life on Mars, it was relatively late. Still, I put the movie in the DVD player, and find the bloody thing is 3 hours long! (I think it must have been a television mini-series.) Out of all the Frankenstein movies available, I picked this one because it’s purported to be the closest to the book. Anyway, I didn’t watch any of the story last night, but started it this afternoon. Michael Sarrazin plays “the creature,” so it’s not very scary. At least not yet. I don’t know if it’ll become more frightful, since I’ve never read the book. Guess I’ll try to finish watching it tonight.
