Napped [Mar. 4th, 2011|11:59 pm]
The afternoon turned gray, lending the evening a moody atmosphere appropriate to late winter. It's about time. The plants have been on hold ever since the warm spell in January launched them into premature blooming mode. Those buds have been sitting there all through February. I don't know what sort of flowers they'll produce once they do get enough warmth to finish blooming. Actual spring should be interesting. Maybe there'll be mutants.

Fell asleep on the couch again, and napped the evening away. Now I've got an entire night for... well, I'll figure out something to do.

mutants! now i'm thinking about those '50s-era b&w scary movies where plants turn carnivorous and bug-eyed monsters arrive in flying saucers. i think james arness played a giant carrot in one of them. or maybe i'm making that up.
aha, naturally blond, later dyed to be marshal dillon
maybe not a carrot after all [imdb may require that reloading thing, for some reason]

and his name was originally aurness. interesting.

Blond like his brother, Peter Graves. I might have enjoyed seeing him play a giant carrot. Then they'd have had to dye his hair orange.

The only big veggie science fiction movie I recall is The Day of the Triffids.

haha! i'd have liked to see that, too. i had a childhood friend whose gift for comic description was a fabulous thing. it may've been lynn who told me the story of the james arness movie, saying he looked like a giant carrot. too bad about the lack of orange hair. :D

i didn't see the Triffids, though i remember hearing that it was scary. a few years ago, i think i told you about the theater in my dinky hometown that was open for a few years. i saw dozens and dozens of excellent movies for a quarter admission. the previews of the scary ones were often more than enough fear factor for me!
