Choosing Figs | Neurotic as Hell | A Travel, Lifestyle, and Life List Blog

Every movie should end in a dance off.

So, I wanted to start knocking some things off my list. I am hoping that in the next two weeks to knock off five more. So might as well start easy by watching some movies…

I bought Hellraiser 2 earlier in the week (since I knew that none of the rental stores had that) and watched that. And tonight I wanted to watch Hellraiser 3…So I went to Blockbuster and nope, and Hollywood and nope, so I ended up going to Best Buy and just bought it.

While at Blockbuster I picked up Girls Just Want to Have Fun, 80s flick starring Sarah Jessica Parker and Helen Hunt which culminated in the quintessential dance off. Because my goal is to watch at least 3 80s movies I’ve never seen and this one had the same title as I named my year. So it was an obvious choice.


So I watched that and now am watching Hellraiser 3, and my boring old year continues. Who’s betting that this one doesn’t end in a dance off? My money’s on Pinhead!

Speaking of movies…The Tripper sounds awesome! How can you go wrong with a serial killer who is obsessive over Ronald Reagan and goes around killing hippies!!! Anyone want to go?!?!?! Pleasepleaseplease?!?!?!?!

Speaking of the 80s…I can’t wait for RadioStar on Friday night!!!!

Hi, I'm Val. I spent most of my 20s in a standstill, unable to pick which path in life I wanted to take. I wanted the nomadic life of a traveler but also wanted the husband, the condo, and the kitten. Unable to decide which life I wanted more, I did nothing. When I turned 30 I’d had enough of putting my life on hold and decided to start “choosing my figs.” So, I quit my job, bought a one-way ticket to Europe, and traveled for three years. Now I'm back in Chicago, decorating my apartment in all the teal, petting my cats, and planning my next adventure.

    You know, Val, FamVid is bad horror flick central, right? We have all the Hellraisers, and a Succubus, DevilDog, Deader than Dead, and House of Blood to throw in to boot.

    That movie poster is just calling out for the Val photoshop treatment.
    So much to talk about reality tv wise! The Apprentice! Idol! So much ridiculousness on every show!

    Lindsay – I know! I was thinking about you when I posted this because I felt bad avout not going to FV. Unfortunatly we don’t have one close enough to where I live. I HATE Blockbuster, they have no movies other than new releases and then charge you $4.50 to have a 20 year old movie for 2 days.
    Chris – I’ll see what I can do 🙂
