Archival Digging and, Just So You Know, I'm a Pussy..

I've been tagged by Jules and Hot Latin Lover for a little meme I've seen cruising its way around the internets. Without further ado...

Here are the instructions:

1. Delve into your blog archive.
2. Find your 23rd post (or closest to).
3. Find the fifth sentence (or closest to).
4. Post the text of the sentence in your blog along with these instructions. Ponder it for meaning, subtext or hidden agendas…
5. Tag five people to do the same.

There's a Mushroom in My Pocket

"But after two bites, I started to feel a little like a chipmunk stocking up for a snack later in my flavor saver pockets."

Meaning, subtext, or hidden agendas: Um. I'm drawing a blank. Heh. I do get a snort whenever I read the words 'flavor saver'. Oh yeah. And, uh, vicoden anyone?

I'm not tagging anyone because I'm a whore like that and I like to keep all of the good shit to myself.

In other news, would you like to know why I couldn't sleep last night?

Okay, hang on a second. I'm trying to find the perfect image on Google, but I'm scaring the everliving shit out of myself. God, I am such a fucking baby. Hang on while I chant "scary movies are NOT real" a few times...

Pause

Whew. So, I awoke at the asscrack of 4:00AM and couldn't get back to sleep because I kept seeing THIS little fucking shit standing next to my bed...


I think that The Grudge is by far the scariest movie I've ever seen. I saw it months and fucking months ago, and the image of that little fucking kid still creeps up under my squeezed shut eyelids at random moments when I happen to wake up in the middle of the night.

I'm never watching a scary movie again. Or drinking beer. I swear.

Edited to Add...

This one is even scarier...


I fear that I will never sleep in peace again...

Ahhh...yes...see, I KNEW to not watch that movie because the PREVIEWS gave my ass nightmares.

Fool.

Zube Girl said...

PaintingChef- Here's the deal. I have NO idea why I love scary movies so much. Seriously. The prevent me from sleeping for months on end.

I would suggest NOT seeing this movie if you are prone to nightmares.

Tessa said...

Ooh - The movie 'Saw' stuck with me for a little bit.
Sure it had it's dumb parts, but the idea of it was interesting.
I TEMPT you both to watch it.

(I think the movie SE7EN scared me the most to date.)

LaLa Lisa said...

Usually, I'm a total scaredy cat, but for some reason The Grudge to me was more comedic than scary. Same thing with The Ring. Yet Final Destination completely freaked me out. I know, odd! :) Ooh, and Hannibal Lechter. Couldn't sleep for days! And Freddie still gets to me. I know, don't try to figure it out. I'm just a strange one!

Zube Girl said...

Tessa- Okay, I actually laughed at Saw! And cringed, too, at the disgusting parts. But it seemed so predictable to me. Isn't it bizarre how everyone feels so differently about movies? That's why I hardly ever pay attention to movie reviews. I never know what I'm going to like.

Seven, though, was totally freaky. It was very real. If you read the news everyday, you know that there are sick fucks in the world like that guy, and that's why Seven creeped me out.

Lala Lisa- I was almost as horrified by The Ring as I was by The Grudge. Not quite, but almost. And Final Destination II actually scared me more than the first one. I'm a sucker I think. A sucker whose more afraid of ghosts and ghoulies than I am of real killers. Go figure! Maybe it's because I believe in, and have encountered ghosts. At least I think I have. And they're so otherworldly and unpredictable. Who knows?

Did you forget to use your blankie? :-)

That kid freaked me out too but I'm usually able to push all the crap from my head when I go to sleep.

Phil said...

I totally got this image of Zubegirl sitting at her computer, wrapped in her scary-movie-afghan searching for images of that freaky little kid, letting out a squeal of fear every now and again. lol

I haven't seen the Grudge, or Seven, or Final Destination. Saw was a great idea, but rediculously done. The Ring was decent, but honestly I didn't find it all that scary. I think I just like the campy scary movies best . . . the ones I can laugh at. Evil Dead II is probably the best "scary" movie ever :)

You want a scary movie? Try this one. Its called 'The descent' and is a little known brit horror flick. Don't let that put you off though, it scared the fucking shit out of me and I watch horror movies because they always make me laugh. Infact, thats the only horror film to EVER horrify me.
Basic premise? Some adventerous women go caving in the Appalacian (sp?) mountains in a previously undiscovered cave, they find gollum like creatures which eat them.
It has a few bad moments but man that scared the living daylights outta me...guess what I am doing this weekend, going caving :)
Facing my fears or what?

txsm said...

I haven't seen The Grudge, but my teens have and bought the movie, for the longest time they would go through the house making that...
"ahhhhhhh" sound from the movie...now I know I don't want to see it.....oh, and did you see that they re-made the movie, "The Fog"....not going to see it..no..no..no......

txsm said...

ok, why the fuck does this keep happening to me.....sorry for the double post....

Chickie said...

Whenvever I hear odd noises in the house now, that kid is the culprit that always comes to my mind.

Amy said...

Ok... now I know why I didn't want to see that movie. Too spooky for me. I saw Salem's Lot when I was in 4th grade and had nightmares for several months afterward. Saw it recently and thought, "ok, that is really lame." LOL

On "The Fog" - I can't wait to see the remake!!! It looks so freaking scary!

Kjersten said...

The Grudge terrifies me. I can only watch it up to the scary little boy part, then I have to turn it off. I can't even think about the scene with the ghost lady in the office building.

Your post about the wisdom teeth made me feel faint. I was washing all sorts of food out of my mouth for months after I had my wisdom teeth out. That was the grossest and most uncomfortable experience I've ever been through.

Zube Girl said...

TJ- See, I think if I weren't fretting over a scary movie, I'd probably be worrying about something else. It's like the older I get the more of an insomniac I become.

Phil- Your imagination is not that far off the mark!

University Girl- I will *have* to see that. You are a brave, brave girl!

TXSM- Oh. My. God. I hate that 'Ahhhh' noise. Zube Boy doesn't help because he'll make it sometimes while we're laying in bed. He's stopped because he's realized that if he does that neither of us gets any sleep what with all my yammering!

Chickie- I am so glad I'm not the only one who thinks that.

Amy- Now I want to see the Fog! I wonder just how nighmare inducing it will be for me?

Kjersten- I would have been smart to stop viewing at that point. And, ugh, having your wisdom teeth out SUCKS! I still, six months later, have one of them that's left a really funky hole that food gets stuck in. I can't stand it!

Blog ho said...

creepy little asian kids.

Storm said...

ah, that's odd. I wrote a post about scary movies this morning..... Hadn't read this yet.

I must say, I'm in the same boat as lala lisa, and wasn't terrified by The Grudge. It has its moments that had me all tense and shit, but overall just didn't do it for me. As a matter of fact, I got more freaked by a documentary about Lizzie Bordens ghost.

Bonanza Jellybean said...

I feel kind of left out... I never get freaked out by movies. I think I spent too much time in film school and learned how it's all done, so that's all I see now.

OK- Seven got me a little. I forgot about that one.

Rainypete said...

I've never liked cats and that flick isn't helping. I haven't seen anything scary in a while, but the latest crop of horror movies are getting better.

mothergoosemouse said...

Never saw it. Won't see it. I'm back in an actual house for the first time in years, with lots of nooks and crannies filled with unknown shit that is bound to scare me, and so far I've managed to keep my imagination harnessed. I don't need to give it any additional fodder.

Zube Girl said...

BlogHo- See, I actually think little Asian kids are cute as hell. Just not creepy ones. But, I'm an equal opportunity hater. I don't like creepy looking caucasian kids either.

Storm- Ooh, ghost stories freak me out, like the ones they have on the travel channel. Yikes.

Bonanza- It would probably do me a world of good to see what goes into making films like that. Seriously.

RainyPete- See, my cats were fighting in the wee hours of the morn, and reminded me way too much of The Grudge.

Mother Goosemouse- You are smarter than I. I see a movie preview and think, "Oh, that would scare the hell out of me and make me lose sleep. I should go see it!"
