Memoir Monday

Memoir Monday

**Welcome to my very first Memoir Monday post. I would love for you to play along- see how to play here!

As for my weekend...

Mr. Ruby departed on his birthday for a business trip, so I was left to fend for myself.

Now, I usually do stupid things to scare myself silly when the hubby is watch horror movies or documentaries on serial killers who have never been found. Last time he went away, I went to a friend's house and watched The Strangers (a creepy movie about these crazies who terrorize a couple in their summer home). Was I startled? Yes. Did I go home and watch Teen Mom to erase all the images of the scary movie? Yes. Did I sleep with the light on? No. I got over it.

In fact, scary movies have never scared me.

Until last night.

I made the HUGE mistake of going to see Paranormal Activity 2.

Holy Terrifying.

Not only did I scream out loud three times during the movie, but the creepy images and scenes would not escape my mind. My heart was seriously pounding until...oh wait, it still is. So.Petrifying.

And just to give you an idea of how bad it was: I had my sweet friend ride with me 20 minutes to my house to pick up my dogs and 20 minutes back to her and her husband's house to stay with them. I seriously could not sleep alone in my house. (And I do it all the time when Mr. Ruby is away).

Even at their house, I was wide awake until 3 a.m.

Oh, and today, I was watching tv and saw a preview for the movie. I reached for the remote as fast as possible and hit fast forward. No lie.

So thanks a lot Paranormal Activity 2. Thank you for scaring the bejoobies out of me and for robbing me of my only shot at much anticipated sleep.


P.S. Even posting this picture made my stomach flip-flop.

There is no way you could get me to see that movie!! I am so, so scared of scary movies! You are a brave soul :)

Kelly said...

Ahhh, those movies are SOOOO freakin' scary!! I haven't seen the 2nd one yet, but you're right-- those images are sooo hard to get out of your head! I had to give myself peptalks for a few days before going to sleep at night ;-)

Saw that movie last night and just seeing the picture gives me the creeps a little....Ok a lot.

JMO said...

I still haven't seen the first one. Does it matter if I watch it before going and seeing the 2nd one?

I don't know if I can handle watching it though! Ekkk!

I can guarantee that I am not seeing that movie! I am terrible with scary movies. Glad you stayed with friends! :)

Krista said...

I have only seen the first one and think about it way too frequently when laying in bed at night. Therefore, I WILL NOT be seeing the second one! I can't believe you saw it while the hubs was out of town!! I'll get in on your Memoir Monday next week:)
