Hurricane coming? Have Beer

I was out all morning trying to get gas, pay my bills and get beer and cigarettes so that if I happen to be trapped indoors for days I will have all my necessary vices.

I finally was going to go into work when my car decided to drop a load of metal in the middle of the street.

I drove her back home and stared at her.

Went upstairs, cracked open a beer and ran through 3 of the 4 messages that my mom left me in a frantic voice making sure I was alright.

Then my boss called.

He said he would pick me up because he needs some help with the telephone system.

Now, I am waiting to be driven back home, slightly tipsy and feeling like if I don't get out of here soon, I am going to break something.

Pray for me and MsP.

Exorcist: The Beginning

I never did get to finish this movie off because my motto is simple.

If ye fall asleep, then it really wasn't that important

But I did like it because of the location and the kid who was eerie as all get out.

There is a great twist at the end but you kind of figure it out because it's the only viable option available which is alright but at least, they could have had you think a bit harder about it.

Overall, it will always just be the movie that shows the background of Father Merrin and proves that yes, he has dealt with this type of thing before and won.

Except when dealing with the demon again, he dies.

Sad, indeed.

I would wait for video for this one because the Exorcist movie is just so much better and it's not really worth paying money for at this point and time.

Still, I have to wonder who really was so interested in Father Merrin's background and initial encounter with the demon, that they had to make a whole friggin' movie about it?

Wasn't talking about it enough in the original?
