Boy: That's because it is Friday the 13th. It is all bad luck and evil.
Me: I think he may be on to something there.
Girl: Yes! Because there is this boy and he is so bad and he is all like, "I am going to kill everyone in the whole world!"
Me: You know that's just a movie, right, babe?
Boy: Yeah, it is, but still on Friday the 13th like all the bad luck we can get will happen and we will have bad weather and it makes evil all like crazy.
Me: You are looking at it all wrong. Friday the 13th isn't about evil. It's about the perfect excuse to watch scary movies all night.
Boy: Oh! Yeah, I like that thinking.
Girl: Me too!
Boy: Except we can't watch scary movies at Grandma's house.
Aunt: No, we cannot.
Me: Not even The Monster Squad? I have it on DVD. It's a kid's monster movie.
Me: Do you remember that movie, dude? With Dracula and The Wolfman and Frankenstein Monster?
Boy: Oh yeah! But Frankenstein was on the good side.
Aunt: No scary movies.
Me: It's not scary.
Boy: Remember when Wolfman blew up and then his body parts reattached themselves?
He was so not helping his own cause! She wouldn't take the DVD, in the end. It actually has some bad language in it which may not have been appropriate for The Little Girl Cousin, but considering when she was a toddler and would wake up in the middle of the night, her dad would rock her back to sleep while watching "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back", I figure it would probably be okay for her to see Monster Squad.
In TV News - who saw the season finale of Psych?! Holy Shit. Are they serious? And it doesn't come back until the fall! I can't wait that long to find out what happens. They ended on a cliff-hanger! They never end on a cliff-hanger! What is happening in my world?! It can't be. It just can't.
In Sum: I think The Sister and I are going to see "Cabin In The Woods" this weekend. If we don't wear ourselves out first with the bazillionity errands we have to run.
(Why, yes, I did change my 'horror' icon from Josh Hartnett in "30 Days of Night" to a "Monster Squad" icon - what do you mean 'that's not horror'?)
