What a Week

When I say "what a week" I mean that in a good way as the last week was pretty great for me. For the most part. Jess has been down all week and we've had a lot of fun. We've also watched a lot of horror movies. I'm not normally into the genre but I felt like watching some and she's a big horror buff. So this past week I have seen Nightmare on Elm Street, Hellraiser 2, a movie simply called Vampires, the original Jurassic Park trilogy and the first three Resident Evil films. That's a lot of horror and it's certainly more than I ever expected I would watch.

There was a time when I dug horror. I knew that what was happening on the screen wasn't real and I was able to disassociate myself from it. Then there came a day when I couldn't do that anymore. I watched a horror and it genuinely frightened me and I wasn't able to enjoy it much after that. I've dipped my toes into the horror genre before but certainly nothing like this past week. So it was interesting to really go out of my comfort zone like that and watch movies that I hadn't seen before, or just hadn't seen in a very long time.

We also watched some non-horror stuff. We watched the fifth (and final) Pirates of the Caribbean movie and a lot of things on YouTube. Like I said it's been a pretty good week. Shame she has to go home today. She'll be back in a few weeks though. Just have to get used to my own company for a bit.

  1. I've seen very few horror movies. None of the famous franchises from the 80s. Someday.

    Sounds like a great way to spend the week with a friend, though! Hope this week turns out as good.

  2. No horror movies for me, but this is the season for it around here with Halloween approaching.

  3. I've never really been much for horror, mostly because of the opposite problem: they don't scare me at all. So, like you, I just spend my time on YouTube. Real life is scary enough.

  4. Horror is not my thing either but I'm glad you and Jess had a fun week together!
