Now there are movies out there that are legitimately scary to me and I won't watch those, but luckily SciFi doesn't seem to have any of those on this year's TV schedule. That one advertising for TV right now, Annabelle. Yea, no way in h-e-double-hockey-sticks would you get me to go to the theater to see that movie. There's just something about evil dolls that seizes up my little-girl-brain and makes me hide under the bed. And we have all seen enough scary movies to know how well hiding under the bed works outs!
And this next part is going to sound crazy and just goes to show how diverse my personality is . . . as soon as scary season ends on SciFi, (at the same time that SciFi is still showing scary movies on October 31st, the Hallmark Channel starts in with Christmas movies) the Hallmark Channel starts their Holiday Movie season. Now, I am almost ashamed to admit this . . but I only discovered the Hallmark movie season last year, but how wonderful it was. I work from home and I tend to have the TV on at times for background noise and oh what a treat it is to glance over and see snow scenes (we all know how very much I love snow . . . just can't have enough of it!) or hear the Christmas music.
I'm not one to really decorate until after Thanksgiving. (Don't look at that one little plastic tree that has been staying lit up since we bought it at a yard sale this past summer as a nightlight for the ferrets.) Thanksgiving deserves its own holiday too. It's a family traditional of big meals and football, I suppose. To me, I picture more of Charlie Brown and Snoopy but I think that's because I always had to watch The Charlie Brown Thanksgiving special and oh! The Macy's Parade. Sitting in the living room watching that while my mom stood in the kitchen cooking. (My parents still live in the same house I grew up in.) And nobody has ever, or will ever, make dressing the way my mom makes it (even if I can't eat it now that I have to avoid gluten.)
The OCD'er in me loves this time of year because it's all planned. SciFi scary movies straight to Hallmark Channel Christmas movies and then you get choices! Do I want to watch the Hallmark Channel Christmas movies or do I want to watch the ABC Family 25 Days of Christmas?! It's like someone else knew there were people like me out in this world and they just planned our TV schedules for us. It's so nice of them and so great! It's always the little things that make such a difference, isnt' it?!
