Silence Of The Lambs

8 Feb

Hubby and I recently watched the movie The Silence Of The Lambs. I hadn’t seen it since it came out in 1990, and Hubby had never seen it.

It totally freaked me out to find out that the actor who played the serial killer:

is the same actor who played Captain Leland Stottlemeyer on TV’s Monk!

Wow. I still can’t get over that.

More work BTS tomorrow…

An Accidental Capricorn?

28 Jan

I am a Capricorn. You know, when people say “What’s your sign?”.

Do people still say “What’s your sign?”?

If they did, that’s what I would tell them.

I’ve always been pretty content about being a Capricorn. You know, a goat.

I’ve always liked goats. In fact, I once had a goat. His name was Todd. But that’s a story for another day. By the way, this is not a picture of Todd. I’ll have to dig one up. This is a goat from a goat-feeding-facility-animal-petting-place that hubby and I visited years ago. This goat is begging for another kibble of goat food that hubby has.

I digress. Some of my traits as a Capricorn are rumored to be:

Practical and Prudent

Ambitious and Disciplined

Patient and Careful

Humorous and Reserved

Pessimistic and Fatalistic

Miserly and Grudging

(Well, mostly good stuff…)

The problem is, I started thinking. I was born 3 months premature. Here I was, way back then in my incubator:

So, instead of being a Capricorn, it may be that I was supposed to be an Aries (a ram).

Hm.

Then, my traits would be:

Adventurous and Energetic

Pioneering and Courageous

Enthusiastic and Confident

Dynamic and Quick-Witted

Selfish and Quick-Tempered

Impulsive and Impatient

Foolhardy and Daredevil

I don’t know. Does that sound more like me?

To make matters even worse, there’s recently been headlines in the news about a 13th sign being added to the astrological signs of the Zodiac – the Zodiac would now be:

New Sidereal Zodiac Chart

Capricorn: Jan. 20-Feb. 16.

Aquarius: Feb. 16-March 11.

Pisces: March 11-April 18.

Aries: April 18-May 13.

Libra: Oct. 30-Nov. 23.

Scorpio: Nov. 23-29.

Sagittarius: Dec. 17-Jan. 20.

If you buy into this.

Or, compare your old with your new:

Sagittarius: Nov. 22-Dec. 21 Scorpio: Nov. 23-Dec. 17
Your previous qualities: philosophical, wide-open and curious nature Your new qualities: determination, passion and motivation

Are you totally confused yet?

And, what if you were born premature, like I was? If you thought you were Capricorn, but maybe are really Aries. But, now that they say they’ve added a sign, instead of Aries, you’re now Pisces (a fish)?

Pisces traits:

Imaginative and Sensative

Compassionate and Kind

Selfless and Unworldly

Intuitive and Sympathetic

Escapist and Idealistic

Secretive and Vague

Weak-willed and Easily led

Yikes. My head is spinning. I think I’m going to go back to bed and mull this over. Do I want to be a fish?

Of course, no offense to all of the fish out there – they are awfully cute!
