You would not think I would need to resort to a Monstrous Monday on the fourth day of a four day weekend. Then again, I’m going back to work after a four day break: how can I NOT feel monstrous? And feel monstrous, I do. I have suddenly been hit by a huge wave of I Can’t Do This. Regular readers may recall that I have a bit on my plate these days. However, I am well aware that other people have more, often with fewer resources than those which I enjoy. What the hell am I complaining about?
I thought it was time to throw in a monster. This is the titular monster from The Tingler (1959), a William Castle masterpiece starring the wonderful Vincent Price. Here’s a Freudian typo: when I went to Google the movie to find the year, I put “Thingler.” That would be a combination of the Thing and the Tingler. If it was a Christmas movie, it could be the Jingler. If it could fly, it would be the Wingler. If unmarried, the Singler. I could go on.
The answer to feeling overwhelmed, other than remembering to breathe, which a good idea under any circumstances, is to do one thing. Then you often find you can do another. Soon you are on your way to Getting Stuff Done. The One Thing I am working on now is my blog post, in case you haven’t guessed. I think it’s time for another monster.
Here is a scene from House on Haunted Hill (1959), another Castle/Price delight.
I looked for another monster picture, because I could not think of anything else to say. This is The Brain from Plant Arous (1957). I wish I had my usual brain, but since that seems not to be functioning, I would take one from any planet. Hmm… my plan of Doing One Thing does not seem to be working. I will hit Publish on this (if I can possibly think of a title), but I am not feeling inclined to move on to something else. Oh dear. Well, tune in tomorrow to see if I did.
