No, it isn't particularly bloody. There is a little bit, but it's not something that stood out to me --- infinitely less than a Tarantino film -- and only a couple of jump scares that I recall. Mostly it's a pervasive feeling of something just isn't quite right.

Have you ever seen a French film called "With a Friend Like Harry?" Nothing really overt happens, but there's this building feeling of dread. I'm remembering something about a kitchen scene with an egg and nothing that you can point to as wrong, but you just know that it is. I'm thinking I need to go back and see this film again, now that I've mentioned it.

Thanks for the info! I usually have Mose give me my movie information, but since grandkid she hasn't been to a single movie.

And speaking of that, we just got back from our grandkid fix for spring break, and I'm ready to go back. I think I'm going to teach one more year, but man it's hard when you just want to play with grandkid and putter around your house and yard.

Oh, and I've never seen that movie, but I get what you're saying. one scary movie I did enjoy was mama. If I buy the premise I enjoy it, and if I don't I can't take it seriously, but whether it's scary or suspenseful my heart rate goes too fast to really like that. I still haven't seen Django Unchained, that's been on my DVR for year. Of course Mama wasn't rated R, so nothing was too bloody.

Another thing I hate is slime and it really irritates me that the advertisements for the movie life has that slimy thing going in his mouth or coming out of his mouth, I can't watch it long enough to see what it's doing. That's what bugged me most about the one Rob Zombie 2 minutes of a movie I accidentally watched on the way to somewhere else. It wasn't the blood and guts it was the Slime of the blood and guts.

Alien was so great, but even though I've seen it so many times I still can't watch where the alien jumps out of his chest.

omg, it's already 4/1 in NZ.

I know...April Fool!

At least they don't have to deal (directly, anyhow) with OUR biggest April Fool Joke...our alleged President.

Just gave blood today for the first time ever! Super proud of myself --- I've always been terrified of it for one reason and another. I figured after having an arterial blood gas draw last year, however, that I could handle this, easy.

28958. judithathome - 4/3/2017 10:28:32 PM

Keoni and I cannot give blood because we lived overseas (Japan) and they deem that as being we were "exposed to"...whatever, I can't recall...anyhow, when my mom was having hip replacement surgery, Keoni went to give blood and was not allowed to...I tried to do so and was denied for the same reason.

I came back today just to say "Hi" and see what is happening here. There doesn't seem to be much traffic these days. It feels like going back to a place you used to live only to find it abandoned. I am glad at least a few people are still keeping it alive.

JJ!!!

Social media has really impacted places like this. We already suffered from trolling and splits and stuff like that, and now everybody's so busy. I've been positively swamped for the last two or three months.

28963. Ms. No - 5/1/2017 5:19:08 PM

Good to see you, JJ! How've you been?

Yes, we're mostly here in fits and starts depending on what's happening and how busy everyone is. My online presence fell off pretty drastically once I started teaching. Not the sort of job that lends itself to checking in places multiple times a day, and by the time I get home in the evening, the last thing I want to do is get on the computer. I'm always happy to see folks here, though.

28964. wabbit - 5/1/2017 7:49:00 PM

Hey JJ, great to see you, hope everything is going well for you!

28965. JJBiener - 5/1/2017 11:55:41 PM

I don't know if it was announced here, msgreer passed away about 18 months ago. It was very sudden. She was peaceful and there was no pain. She was a founding member here, so I thought you should know.

28966. Ms. No - 5/2/2017 3:14:13 AM

I'm sorry to hear that. I know you were close friends. I still think of her often when talking to my students about possible professions in health care --- and to others I know who would benefit from having a Nurse Advocate.

Do you know how her daughter is doing?

28967. wabbit - 5/2/2017 11:45:56 AM

Oh no, I am so sorry to hear about Ms. Greer, my condolences JJ. I was just thinking about her last week, and also wonder how her daughter is doing.

28968. JJBiener - 5/2/2017 1:42:55 PM

Msgreer's daughter is doing alright. She is in a facility in South Florida. I talk to her on a regular basis. Obviously she is still grieving, but she is working through it.

28969. judithathome - 5/2/2017 6:00:42 PM

Well, hey! to you JJ...good to see you!

And so sorry to hear about msgreer...sad news but good to know she didn't suffer.

28970. arkymalarky - 5/3/2017 4:03:11 PM

So sad about MsGreer, such as good and kind person, but I'm glad her daughter's doing well.
