My bayba



I have to keep reminding myself it was just a few months ago that we ended our daily day-to-day, you're with me and I'm with you doings. When he started school we parted ways. When I began working again I put in more hours away. He's my baby - my bayba. He's still snuggly and funny, hand-holding, kissing, hugging, climbing, chasing, playing, laughing, joking, sharing, smiling. But school is big business, serious times, quiet times, studious times, active times, structured times, group times. He's adjusting. I'm adjusting. I just have to keep reminding myself that his fits and my struggles are sometimes still connected to our old routine. I loved that routine and he thrived in it. Too bad it didn't prepare either one of us for what we're doing now. But as long as we have each other...
Mahalo for you and me!

I get it

Sometimes I get silly thoughts but don't act on them. Sometimes I do. I am not getting any more or less prohibitive now than when I was young. I suppose I am just as picky.

"Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read." Groucho Marx

The kids want to wear a costume, part of a costume, make their own costume, GREAT! Put color in their hair. French braid, mohawk, up, down. Mix-n-match socks. Sing a silly song. Create an accent. Some of that is me, not them; maybe they'll learn.

Sometimes I crack up at simple things and I roll with it. I get it.

Mahalo for getting it any which way!

Fear.net

I love creepy, spooky, icky, gross, startling, strange, suspenseful movies. I like Fear.net. Today I watched 'Backwoods', a strange ride into foreign countrysides and backwards living. Good stuff.

An entertaining thriller was based in France, the catacombs under Paris. Pink was in it. Great way to use scenery; wall after brick wall, skulls, more walls and halls. The story started at the end and ended there again. I really like that kind of backtrack, figuring things out in reverse.

Throw in a twist with mystery and you have the Japanese movie about a woman murdered and a man tripping onto the case and getting involved against his will. Some effects were just silly, some were original, some have been done, but the end is worth it all.

I do not like Friday 13 or Jaws, or actually, those did scare me. Nice, can't go camping or swimming now. I do not like novel-based popular character multiple storyline movies. Some science fiction is good, 'Contact' is one of my all-time favorite movies and Twelve Monkeys was great. But the alien kick arse stuff gets old.


There are some great books I've read that I would love to see on the screen like 'Imajica' by Clive Barker. But I would be so disappointed if they don't portray everything the way it is in my head. Anyone need a director?
