Today has been a rather downer of a day. Nothing really bad, happened, but some good things that should have happened kind of fell thru. I am sick of being poor and broke, and feeling like I am working for nothing. Sometimes I feel like I'm in a really bad dream, and I just have to make it until I wake up and than I can go back to my real world.

When a person is in a mood like this they tend to make some really interesting choices in the video rental store. My choices, Donnie Darko (directors cut I haven't seen the movie before, but I can't believe I missed. Who ever wrote this is very well read, and knows a lot of movies. Great movie, just make sure you have your brain on fully when you watch it, if you pee you will be confused. Heck make sure you have time to watch it at least twice. Very good movie, also left me with a need to find and read The Destructors by Graham Greene - not to be confused with Lorne Greene - sorry bad in joke. How can anybody not love a movie with evil killer rabbits?), Finding Neverland (perfect choice for someone who lived with a Peter Pan wannabe for ten years), and Dawn of the Dead Directors Cut (depressed people love zombies, I can so relate to the walking dead thing.).

I am a big fan of wierd but intelligent movies, especially if they are dark and don't end happily ever after. One of my favorite "romance" movies is War of the Roses. I even like the original Night of the Living Dead, despite the low production values and the cheese factor, it is still a relatively good zombie movie.

I wonder if my being so depressive has anything to do with my taste for the dark and ironic. I guess it is very hard to sit thru something all happy and cheerful when what you really want to do is rip somebody's liver out. Most happy movies to me, seem to be too simple, everybody gets what they deserve and the protaganists all live happily ever after. Those kind of endings tend to bug me, at least sometimes, especially if they are overly sappy. I can't stand sweet and sappy, its like mental diabetes. If it can't be dark, let it at least be realistic with in the universe that the movie takes place. Have the characters talk like real people, not like stereotypes, or sound like they have writers, or worse yet, kids who talk like they are miniature 40 year olds. I realize sometimes dialogue is written a certain way to create a certain style, (Attack of the Clones comes to mind), but in my opinion it was a believable dialogue for that time and place in that universe. It was consistant.

After reading that last paragraph I also realized I must be overly tired as I am not explaining myself very well, or making a lot of sense. So I am going to go to bed, and pray I don't go sleep walking to the golf course with any evil rabbits, who predict the end of the world down to the last minute, unless of course that means I will wake up and this nightmare will all be over, as I am not really here but died anyway.. (that really didn't make any sense..even if you have seen the movie.. I gotta watch it again, and the extras).

In every neighborhood there is at least one house that all the neighbors gossip about. This is a diary from the woman who lives in that house. I am a single mother in her mid thirties. I live in North Dakota with my son, Warren.

I tend to be a bit of a slob, and am the opposite of a girly-girl. I am geek girl, who loves Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Buffy, Angel, action movies, science fiction, action adventure, Dr. Who, and so on and so on.

I love to write and while I don't post much fiction online anymore I would love to be a writer someday. I am also overweight, bipolar and suffer from allergy induced asthma.
