Everything, Nothing & Stuff In-between -  
Random stuff from my brain

U is for Unspeakable.

I'm going to tell you a secret.

An embarrassing secret. 

I can't say the word...Worcestershire. You know, like the sauce? Worcestershire sauce. Can't say it.

Thinks that's funny?

How about Anemone? Like a Sea Anemone? Looks easy enough, but when I try to say it, it doesn't come out right. At. All. :)

Do you have any words that you have trouble pronouncing?

4-22-2017 #AtoZChallenge - S is for Supernatural, the show.

S is for Supernatural, the show.

Yep. I watch it. There are quite a few shows that I watch that are like my hidden/secret obsessions/pleasures.

It doesn't hurt that they're both easy on the eyes.

The stories are fun, even when it's 'Good vs. Evil' just about all the time. There's some great humor and of course tons of drama. They certainly get their butts kicked, but they always manage to save the world.

One day, when I win the lottery and have all kinds of time on my hands, I will re-watch every show and count up how many times these two get knocked out. Their brains must be mush by now!

R is for Repeat!

Okay, be truthful...

What TV shows/Movies would you watch again and again and again if they were on the TV?
Okay, if you want, you can add books you like to re-read as well. :)

Here are mine, in no particular order...

The X-Files
The West Wing

The Day After Tomorrow
Jurassic Park

Jurassic Park (I like dinosaurs!)
Harry Potter Series
The Fever Series
Rick Riordan books (Like the Percy Jackson series. I read them with my son.)

4-20-2017 #AtoZChallenge - Q is for Quint aka Robert Shaw.

Q is for Quint aka Robert Shaw.
I do love the movie Jaws.
I didn't see it in '75 because my parents would never have taken us kids to see a movie so frightening as a shark attacking people right near a beach.
I want to say it was maybe three or four years later before I ever saw it at home on VHS.
(For you young folks, they couldn't release the VHS version of a movie for a couple years as opposed to now when they release digital in just a few months.)

"Front, bow. Back, stern. If ya don't get it right, squirt, I throw your ass out the little round window on the side."

And it stuck with me. Not just the gory shark scenes, but Quint.
He was so awesome.
"So, eleven hundred men went into the water, three hundred sixteen men come out, and the sharks took the rest, June the 29th, 1945.  Anyway... we delivered the bomb."  

He can still give me goosebumps when he delivers that scene.

The movie and the cast were excellent. Mr. Shaw passed away just three years after this film released and would never know the success of Jaws or that it had such staying power. Quint will live on forever.
