Just a couple of random thoughts before I go make dinner

I don't know why I remembered this this afternoon, but, the best scene in Psycho II was the final scene. Mrs. Spool tells Norman that she's his real mother as he gives her a cup of tea and *POW* clocks her on the back of the head with a shovel, stuffs her (presumed) and sets her in the bedroom window.
I didn't see the shovel smackdown coming, and I think that was the first and only time I actually laughed out loud at a murder scene.

If you own a deli, and I walk in one morning and order a toasted bagel with cream cheese, don't do any of these things:
Don't grab a bagel from your freezer;
don't thaw said frozen bagel in your microwave;
don't smoosh down the thawed bagel in order to fit it into your standard bread toaster because you don't have a proper bagel toaster;
don't hock off a 1/2-inch square from a cream cheese log (that looks like a Velveeta log - only white);
don't wrap the thick-as-chilled-Play-Do-stuffed lukewarm doughy bricks (or any hot or warm breads) in aluminum foil!!!
Do something else. Thank you. :)

Given my squirrels-in-the-attic problem, I searched Google to see where I could find some fox urine. Since there are people who study Google searches, for various reasons, I wonder if fox urine Connecticut might someday make someone's list of "least effective porn searches".

And, finally: Homemade bread rules! I made a loaf of saffron & fennel wheat bread that was awesome on Sunday. Mmmmm, bread...

I go make dinner now!

I burst out laughing while watching "American Psycho", at the point where the villain (?) faces the fact it might have been all paranoid delusions that made him kill people, not actual betrayals. It was just the look on his face...
I was roundly shushed and loudly scolded by another movie-goer, who said I was a "sick bitch" for thinking it was funny. Needless to say, evil sick bitch that I must be, I moved until I was sitting behind him and giggled the rest of the movie, even when it wasn't funny.
Funny is in the ticklebone of the beholder, you know.

That was one of the biggest 'gotcha' scenes in horror film history. I rewound the tape repeatedly to watch it over and over again.
