Halloween Cat

Half Asleep

It's amazing the thoughts which come to one as you're laying in bed half asleep while cats are dancing around your head and on your bureau (where they aren't supposed to be), and you drift from the dreaming world (I was in the midst of a long and complex dream which stayed with me for a while, but it seems to be gone now) into the waking world, and I thought to myself:

If the Vatican doesn't want gay males in the seminary because of the temptation of being around a large number of men, then it seems to me the obvious solution to the priest shortage problem is lesbian women. No temptation there.

Last night I finally saw The Graduate all the way through for the first time. I knew all the famous scenes, of course, but had never watched the film. I bet those folks who despise musical montages hate this movie. One whole section in the center is Benjamin stalking watching Elaine while they play "Scarborough Fair" two or three times all the way through. Funnier movie than I expected--I hadn't realized it was written by Buck Henry.

Then we watched Monsoon Wedding. I could really come to love Bollywood movies. I love the Indian dress and music, whee!

Turkey came out good, but there's a LOT of leftovers (a turkey goes a long way in feeding three people), including a large amount of gravy. I then came all over with a craving for Big Ass Chocolate Cake, but there was none to be had, so I had to settle for Little Debbie Swiss Cake Rolls.
