My bad blogging but good movie-watching week continues with a fast Non-Sequitur Thursday post. I am into Alfred Hitchcock today. I offered Steven a choice of The Birds or Psycho, and he chose The Birds. Murder and mayhem without being too disturbing. And we get to make fun of Annie the doormat. It is rather unbecoming of me, come to think about it, because I have sometimes acted the doormat myself, in my sordid, low-self-esteemed past. I try to avoid such behavior these days, but you just never now what you might do given the right (or wrong) circumstances.
This was the only photo I could find quickly featuring Annie the doormat. I can’t think of anything witty to say about Rod Taylor or Veronica Cartwright, so I will merely note their presence.
Maybe I can talk Steven into watching Psycho next. It starts slow then picks up and become quite satisfyingly creepy. In the meantime, I am missing The Birds while I type in this blog post. Full disclosure: I think I am coming down with a stupid cold. I hope I am feeling better tomorrow. Perhaps I could forgo Lame Post Friday and write a good post, to make up for my bad blogging week. No promises. Happy Thursday, though.
