A couple of years ago, I shared the scariest movie I have ever seen —
The Town that Dreaded Sundown
I still have the emotional scars to prove it.
While perusing the new February offerings on Netflix today, what movie jumped out at me in the Horror section?
Mr. Pillowcase Face himself.
Now, I have no desire to ever watch this movie again. I’ve had all the sleepless nights due to this movie that I need for one lifetime.
But if you’re a horror movie buff — and a Netflix streaming member — now’s your chance.
If you need to join my support group afterward, you know where to find me.

Parenthood, I miss you already.
Your final episode sits in denial on my DVR, as if not erasing it will bring back the series next season.
You Bravermans were that perfectly imperfect clan — often close to imploding but always ending up even closer together.
I’ll miss the endless baseball games and backyard gatherings under the twinkly lights. Everyone singing or dancing for some reason or other. And giving sudiences the first indepth conversation about Asperger’s syndrome on network TV.
Over your six seasons, my obsession with characters morphed and changed with the storylines. But I will always love Julia and Joel, and be grateful for the addition of Hank, because Ray Romano is a wonderful dramatic actor (which I discovered in Men of a Certain Age) and I loved what he brought to Parenthood.
I’m rambling because I hate to say goodbye. Let’s just say, “See ya later…”
Because I will be watching again soon.

I haven’t lived in Kansas City since 2000, but have family and many friends there, so I visit frequently. That’s why I can say, with much confidence, that Daniel Mueller, Digital Editor at Sun Times Network, is…
He recently posted a list of the Top Ten Mexican Restaurants in Kansas City and did not include my personal favorite:
When I return to Kansas City, a trip to Margarita’s is always at the top of my list. I love their chips and salsa, their nachos, their daily specials, and signature margaritas, too. Plus, the general vibe of the place is just casual and comfortable and feels like home.
Don’t get me wrong — there are some great Mexican restaurants on Daniel’s list. But if a friend or visitor to Kansas City asked me where to go, I’d still point them to the place on Southwest Boulevard…
…with the flood line on the wall.

I’ve mentioned here before that I’m claustrophobic.
It’s getting worse instead of better.
I had to have another closed MRI yesterday, and unlike my experience a couple of years ago, I was a bit of a wreck.
The technician used all the bells and whistles to calm my fears — and trick my brain — into thinking I wasn’t in a narrow, closed tube.
But they didn’t work this time.
When I got home, I started reading up on possible therapies, cures even, for this debilitating fear. Guess what the first recommendation is?
Get an MRI.

I have been on vacation in Central Kentucky this week.
It’s in my rear view mirror now, but the memories are crystal clear.
