‘There is a reason I said I’d be happy alone. It wasnt because I thought I would be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It’s easier to be alone. Because what if you learn that you need love? And then you don’t have it. What if you like it? And lean on it? What if you shape your life around it? And then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It’s like dying. The only difference is, death ends. This? It could go on forever…’ Meridith Grey – Grey’s Anatomy
The past few nights have been rainy, windy and cold. The perfect setting for thrillers and horror movies. I remember past winters, back when I was a teenager. Then, we used to watch such movies on such nights. Movies like, Urban Legend, I know what you did last summer, Stigmata, Exorcist, Halloween, Night of the Scarecrow, Scream, Bride of Chucky and the list goes on.
It was awesome then. I remember my brothers would have their stock of snacks (twisties and poppies!), and we would all sit in front of the TV or PC, with the light out. *Awesome*. It is a shame now that we do not have such family nights, or such movies really. 😦
And as a side note, I watched Exorcist with my cousin on a late rainy winter afternoon. We were under the covers, alone at home, and the PC screen far from us. The movie ended around 18hrs. A bad bad time to finish watching a movie like Exorcist. It just got dark and you have not showered, have not had dinner or anything yet. That movie really was scaring. The horrible head of that little girl turning 360 degrees. *Shivers*
Anyway, those would be unfogettable past winter thrills, In My World. 😉
