#TheListingHop 5 of the scariest movies I’ve seen #music

This is the last Monday in the month, kittens & dawgs. The year is flying away like a witch on a broomstick. I’m pulling together a theme based 2-for-1 post with 5 of the scariest movies I’ve seen.

Let’s get started!

#1 Psycho


Everyone has to agree the shower scene is the heart-stopping moment in this flick. It’s definitely the most memorable. We didn’t have a shower when I saw this movie and afterwards I never wanted to take a shower. Years later I learned that shower sales declined sharply after people saw this movie. Talk about movie persuasion!


#2 Jaws


The opening scene with the gal taking a late night dip in the ocean struck real terror in my heart. Not only did it scare me to death, it roused a hidden fear that I have of deep water and since then if my feet can’t touch the bottom (excluding swimming pools), then I curl my legs up to my chest.


#3 The Exorcist


The wickedest part of this was the whole head turning completely around thing, regurgitating on the priest, bed levitation, creepy demonic voice in this movie. It sorta left me a bit traumatized because I know there are such things as demons and this truly raised the hairs on my head.

#4 Friday the 13th


Up until this point, I had NO idea what horror films were really like and honestly after all that slice and dice, thinking the bad guy is dead, but really isn’t stuff then this totally turned me against these sorts of flicks. This stuff actually happens. What was I thinking of? Anywho, after the first terrifying scene where I pierced DH’s ear drums and the people sitting the row in front us with a shrill pitch that surprisingly escaped my lips, and then I sat in the theater the rest of the time with my hands ready to cover my eyes, which was often, until the movie ended. Boy, was I ever happy when that movie was over!

#5 Alien


Science Fiction is a different kind of creepy and I’m pretty sure this sorta thing can NEVER happen. However, near the beginning of this flick where the “Alien infant” bursts out of that man’s robbed me of six of my seven lives on the spot. I screamed. I jumped. I pulled my feet into my chair (and, I’m pretty sure that’s where they stayed the whole time). It was seriously good scary stuff. The best part is I looked forward to a possible second movie.

Thanks for joining this scaredy-Cathy, but before you go, I invite you to visit Bish and her co-host, Alex. The duo responsible for this blogging community event.


I’m participating!

Now, let’s keep the party going, link up and join the fun with the Monday’s Music Moves Me crew for a spooktacular time.


And, this is a scary thing in itself! Have a safe and happy Halloween!



Meet Me on Monday – Steak preference to scheduling trips

I’m linking with Java in her weekly hop Meet Me on Monday with my answers to these questions.


1. How do you order your steak?  As much as I like steak this is the last thing I want to order.  I prefer to get chicken.  Most restaurants are reluctant to prepare my steak as I want, which is well done.  I don’t like my beef to be pink at all.  I prefer grilling my steak at home where I know it’s done absolutely right.

2. Are you superstitious about anything?   Nah, I’m not superstitious about anything but when I was a kid I felt certain that Friday the 13th held impending misfortune for me.

3. Who is your best friend (not including your spouse)? Totally unfair, Java! Like, who am I going to put down here? My husband is my absolutely best friend. {scratch head} Okay if the truth is known, I have many good friends and most of them are pen pals or email pal but a lot of my friends are on Facebook–some new & many are classmates from bygone days. Nonetheless, I feel a real kindling with my old classmates, as if we haven’t missed a beat from our childhood. I can’t narrow it down to one.

4. When is the last time you wore a dress (for the guys…a suit)? In October.  My husband and I had a couple of weeks to goof off just the two of us. We had a lot of date nights where my husband spoiled me with a lot of dining out. That was my opportunity to dress up like a princess.  Yes, I feel like Cinderella when we are given these alone times to spin our heels and have a little fun while Mommy plays dress up.

5. Do you have any trips scheduled? If I had a trip scheduled, I don’t believe I’d broadcast it across the Internet for everyone to know.  Mind you, most people are casually here to read my blog but there are cyber thieves out there waiting for a chance to find out who’s NOT going to be home.  These cats are a 100 times smarter than  me and I don’t think I want to give them any more of an advantage than they already have. Paranoid? Maybe, but I’m not about to take that chance.
