Anyone who knows me knows that I am a horror movie freak. I’ve seen the major ones, like Halloween, Nightmare on Elm Street, Night of the Living Dead, It, and many many others. I’ve also seen more than my fair share of B rated horror movies just because I love the horror genre that much.
Want a little idea at how much I love them? I was talking to The Husband one night on the phone and our conversation went like this.
Him: “I wonder what I’m watching. It’s on the SyFy channel, so there’s no telling what it is.”
Me: chuckling a little bit, “You’re right. There is no telling. What’s happening?”
Him: “This couple pulled into this abandoned gas station and then left. But when they left you can see the attendant guy’s dead body some and this little kid was hiding and watching them.”
Me: “Hmmm. Sounds like Children of the Corn. And about fifteen other possible horror movies.”
I then proceed to pull up the guide on my tv and find the SyFy channel to let him know what he’s watching (he doesn’t get a guide in his room at the man camp/apartment/bachelor pad out west).
Me: starts laughing hysterically
Him: “Whats so funny?”
Me: “I pulled up the guide, giggle giggle, to tell you what your watching, hahaha!”
Him: “And? What is it?”
Me: “You’re not going to believe this, chuckle chuckle, but it’s totally, giggle giggle, Children of the Corn! Hahahahaha!”
Him: joins me in laughing, “You’ve seen way too many horror movies.”
Me: “You take that back. There’s no such thing as too many horror movies!”
So you see, I love them. Some people, cough cough The Husband, think it’s crazy. Other people, cough cough The Daughter, share my love of them.
Recently, last night in fact, I had the brilliant idea to combine my love of horror movies with my joy of crocheting. I rarely make things for myself. I usually make things for other people. This idea came to me, actually, while I was surfing the web for ideas for an afghan for The Daughter. In order to do what I want, it’s going to take some time and dedication on my part, and a little help from everyone else out there in Cyber Land, which lead us to this post.
