Monday has rolled around again and given yours truly another well needed rest from the workaday existence of my ordinary routine. I should be doing another review for “13 Assassins”…. I really… really should. But… darn it all…. it’s a warm sunny afternoon and despite my very mature and logical desire to buckle down and write one, the breeze keeps blowing through the window…. Ting-ting keeps clamoring for me to play with her… my tummy keeps telling me it wants spicy Thai curry noodles, just like they serve at my local Thai restaurant… all these things distracting me and begging me to be naughty and play hooky from all my responsibilities.
Given this… I’m going to give in to my “inner kitten” and sneak away for a walk in the park while the weather is nice and I can still wear a nice light summer dress and feel the wind on my legs, arms, and shoulders. Fall is here to stay… I can feel that for certain in the crisp, cold mornings we’ve been seeing lately. Soon I’ll be breaking out my pea coat and several more pairs of sweaters to ward off that chill, but for now… that seems far away. (Yeah, right….. 😉 )
What else am I up to lately? Well this wouldn’t be a proper “Diary” update if I didn’t let you in on that, so let’s not dilly-dally around any longer… It’s time for all my Regular Visitors and Gentle Friends to “Read On”… and find out.
As it’s been painfully evident, I’ve been falling back a bit again in my regular postings. Fall is usually like that for me… especially once the nearby colleges get underway for their Fall Semesters. Business picks up at the restaurant and my workload increases to match. But since my vacation, it hasn’t been too terrible this year. And…. Halloween is coming!! Just next month…. so close your Favorite kooky Catgirl can just feel it!! (Sensing the approach of Halloween… It’s one of my “Mystical Catgirl Powers”… Honest!!) 😉
I’m already beginning to run ideas through my head for some spooky cosplay fun, although I probably wont go as crazy with it all as I did last year. But then I always say that…. Hehehehe!! I expect you’ll be hearing more on this subject as the holiday approaches and my enthusiasm reaches it’s bubbly peak of near explosion.
Errrr??? Ummmm?? Ok… Having caught myself getting perhaps a wee bit toooo excited by the approach of my favorite holiday I suppose I should calm down and give people some idea what films I have actually been managing to watch lately… and which might make their way to a review here at the ol’ Litterbox in the next few weeks if the “Movie Faeries” smile on me. There’s “13 Assassins” of course… which I can tell you will definitely be my next one coming your way. I’ve been driving poor Carolyn to distraction with the veritable avalanche of Malay discs that have arrived in the mail too. “Flat 3A”, “Hantu Kak Limah Balik Rumah”, “Senjakala”, “Seru”, “Dilarang Masuk”, “Karak Laluan Puaka”, and “Rasuk”. Nice to have found a good source for them while I was looking for a replacement for my Indonesian film supplier.
I haven’t forgotten about Europe either… having traced a copy of the big budget Spanish Lovecraft inspired horror film “La Herencia Valdemar”… as well as it’s recently released sequel “La Sombra Prohibida”. Really looking forward to those two. Norway is making another visit to my DVD player too, in the form of 2009’s “Snarveien” aka “Detour” out on Region 2 in the UK.
There are a couple of Korean ones on the horizon too… coming into release in the next few weeks… “The Cat” and “White: Melody of Death”, but those will have to wait… I’m getting a wee bit backed up in my overly enthusiastic way when it comes to my teetering “To Watch” pile as it is. Sigh….
Still…. If any of these sound interesting and you want to hear more about them, well then all you have to do is drop me a note, and I’ll try to push them to the top of the pile…. (But remember… it is a pretty big pile…. 😉 )
Ahhh…. Anyway, my tummy is growling pretty good (Feed me, Miyuki!!! Feed me something spicy and good!!)…. and it seems I’ve managed to delay my walk just in time for Carolyn to make it home, so I suppose it’s time for this wee Catgirl to tease her sweetie into joining me for a late afternoon romp and search for a yummy dinner out. So… I guess I’ll finish up for the moment and untill next time, “Meow, meow for now!!”
