I got my first look at a Go Pro camera in an electronics store in the Cincinnati Airport over Halloween weekend. I had seen video footage from one before, but the clips they had on a loop at the store entrance sucked me right in.
So I completely understand why this squirrel felt the need to ‘grab and go.’
I saw Frankenstein at the Woodford Theatre Company in Versailles, Kentucky last night.
I was spooked.
This production is an excellent reminder that local theater can get it right.
There’s death by every manner imaginable — hanging, gunshot, strangulation, beatings — and they all look amazingly real. Give credit to the special effects designer and crew, and a cast that ‘dies on stage’ in the best way possible.
This is a serious translation of the original text — no campy Frank send-up here — and you have one more night to experience it.
Oh, and if you wonder about that one guy’s bloody, mangled face?
I know today is National Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich Day. I pay my respects and send my love.
But for lunch today, I had the good fortune to have a popcorn ball.
It was part of a popcorn-themed gift basket that my brother and sister-in-law generously gave me for my birthday. I fully expected to find different flavors of popcorn in the box, but the popcorn balls were a sweet, sweet surprise. Our family used to make them from scratch for Halloween when I was a kid. I have burned my hands many a time shaping those popcorn balls.
I just did a quick Google search — there is a National Popcorn Day in January, but no individual celebration for the popcorn ball itself.
