Which isn’t a surprise, since it’s looking like she had more stuff in there than could possibly fit, and the workers are still not done.

The Midnight Movie Commentary: Back to the Future.

More drama around here, as my sister is sent to the hospital. She apparently decided (please don’t ever ask or comment about this, this is just how she is, despite being four years older than me) that it would be a smart move to eat or drink absolutely nothing for almost a week, because she just didn’t want to. And we couldn’t convince her to. And when Mom spotted that my sister’s legs were swollen from something like the knee down to the ankle, she was sent to the hospital. Currently diagnosed (as you’d expect after a week) with dehydration and malnutrition. Oh, and for a while someone thought she had Impetigo, but no. It's just acne.

I believe (and Mom agrees) she’s situated one floor above where Nellie is currently dying, but the nurses aren’t allowed to tell Mom the exact room number, due to doctor-patient confidentiality. She’s trying to get it from a neighbor, who is currently at work.

As I was leaving, I heard from behind me someone was muttering over and over: "I...didn't know movies could be that bad. I-I didn't know...I didn't know..." Their friend consoled them. Upon my telling him there’s a sequel, Dad started laughing hysterically in the car. The short with Norman was hysterical.

For Yuletide, I just did a massive overhaul of my sign-up. I realized that it had been too long since I watched Pushing Daisies, and if I didn’t remember major character moments and/or little quirks I couldn’t possibly do them justice if that were my assignment. So I removed that, and replaced it with Fright Night (2011). I’m fine with writing any character for Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992), so I moved that to the Bucket List section, and replaced that slot with Justice League Unlimited.

So as of now, my offers look like this: Fright Night (1985), Back to the Future, Fright Night (2011), Ghostbusters, Justice League & Justice League Unlimited (Cartoons), Addams Family (1991). Bucket List: Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992), Anno Dracula Series - Kim Newman, Beetle Juice (1988), Van Helsing (2004), Mannequin (1987), A Study in Emerald - Neil Gaiman, Lost Skeleton of Cadavra (2004), Soapdish (1991), The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: 1996.

If I watch Mockingbird Lane and enjoy it, I’ll throw that into the pile, too.

Posting this a bit early now, before I head out for a double bill showing of Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein at the local Cinemark. That’s about three hours, I do believe. Tomorrow night is Rifftrax Live.

Next Year In Yuletide. Some people (like me) are already planning what they’ll nominate next year. I’m making a note to nominate the Fred Saberhagen Dracula novels.

In relation to this year’s Yuletide, I’ve just finished signing up—fandoms I’ve offered are: Fright Night (1985), Back to the Future, Pushing Daisies, Ghostbusters, Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992), Addams Family (1991)—with the fandoms tossed into the bucket section being Last Unicorn (1982), Van Helsing (2004), Mannequin (1987), Soapdish (1991), A Study in Emerald - Neil Gaiman, Lost Skeleton of Cadavra, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: 1996, Anno Dracula Series - Kim Newman.

I threw out Cabin in the Woods, since I wasn’t sure how well I’d be able to write for that one. If it turns out that I enjoy the pilot for Mockingbird Lane, then I’ll edit that in if I’m able.

Yuletide sign-ups are now open. About Optional Details. You can find a summary of sign-up offers and requests here. Sign-ups will remain open until October 28th. I know exactly what to request, I just need to whittle down what I’m offering. For example—removing The Shadow upon seeing a couple Dear Yuletide letters, since I’ve only seen the film, and not the radio show, serial or comics. I need to find out if Dark Shadows (60’s version—since I know the 90’s version is on Youtube, but it wasn’t nominated), Pushing Daisies, and Real Ghostbusters are available online for viewing, so I can brush up on canon—been a while since I watched those.
