Creepy Friday: Is it me or is time flying?

So it hit me today...wow...April already? Are you fricken kidding me? The first quarter is up already! Damn time flies...or am I flying? They keep telling me the older I get the faster times flies...if that is the case then I totally get why my grandparents look totally disoriented every time I see them! So it is creepy Friday...take a look at what creeped me out this week...

(1) Session 9

So in my pursuit of Creep, this week my latest movie was Session 9. Now I have got to tell you, while I wasn't exactly running across the front yard in the dark full of terror, this actually ranked high in my book on the creep factor. It is a psychological movie and I won't spoil it for you but I really liked this one and will actually give it a high mark on my creep meter. If you are easily creeped out don't watch this one at night alone...and if you do....take pictures. I will say this much...how did this guy get away with this shit with all those guys from Law & Order in there...damn cops...never one around when you need one!

CREEP Meter: 8

(2) The Expendables



Have you seen this trailer? Now THIS is hilarious...one last hoorah for the classics! SO in ONE movie we have Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jet Li, Jason Statham, Bruce Willis, Eric Roberts, Mickey Rourke, Dolph Lundgren, Steve "Stone Cold" Austin, Randy Couture and Terry Crews. As if THAT were not enough they also tried to get Jean-Claude van Damme,Steven Seagal and Wesley Snipes! So what we have is an unending supply of testosterone not to mention geritol and ben gay....at least we have the peace of mind that our movie legends are safe...Medicare should cover any accidents nicely!

(3) "Can I rub your head?"

OK. So I work at a children's hospital. I see all kinds of kids come in and out...some rude, some polite, some well or ill behaved...face it...kids are as different as adults are. So this week I had this kid come in, mind you, I don't think he was all together there, but then neither was his mom. I could hear him in the waiting room and I cringed at this registration. So the kid comes in and he has one of those can cooler sleeves (you know the foam ones you put your can of beer in to keep it cool?) on his hand and says, Hey there! Look! I am missing a hand!...I thought...oh geez..this should be good. So as I am doing registration, this kid (10-12 age group so as not to betray any "HIPAA" info)decides he likes me and wants to hug up all over me. Now I gotta tell you; I am a very touchy feeling person with people I love. With strangers? I am big on my personal space. Don't touch me and keep your safe distance. So this kid decides he just LOVES me...is all huggy and shit. I keep looking at his mom like...hello????? No help there. And then this kid REALLY creeps me out...he says...Can I rub your head?....wtf???? Now keep in mind I shave my head so rubbing my head is actually possible...but still...????? Are you fricken serious? So he doesn't wait for an answer and starts rubbing my head....shudders...seriously...I was freaking out...and mom? Yeah...still no help there...I was thrilled to get them out of there for sure...rub da Buddah! INDEED!

CREEP Meter: 9 (seriously....I was creeped out...no touchy!)

(4) My 5 year old "mother"

Those of you that know me, know that I am a single dad of a beautiful little girl that is My life. She really is everything I live for. She is funny, sassy and quite the handful. Well it seems of late that she has decided that due to the lack of a "significant other" in my life it is HER job and designation in life to be MY mother and look out for Daddy. Not too long ago I was sick and My mom made the mistake of telling Bethanie that Daddy was sick and she had to take care of me. OMFG! Just a hint? NEVER do that to a five year old. My sweet little girl turned into this terrifying bossy little shit! She would come into the computer room and tell me, "Daddy you need to get off the computer and come in the room and rest so I can watch you." I shit you not! So Wednesday night I was hyped up on coffee and couldnt sleep. So I went to bed around 3:30am and I creep into the room quietly and notice she is awake, so I lean over her and ask, "Babygirl you ok?" To which she responds with a slightly rebuking sigh, "yes Daddy I am ok but you need to sleep." wtf?

CREEP Meter: 10 (decidedly a 10...she will be 6 years old this month and I shiver to think how much worse this can get!)

So what creeped you out this week...care to share?


Definition of the CREEP Meter:

There is no definition except 1-10...1 being...hell are you kidding me this shit is boring and 10 being...please excuse me while I change my underpants!

-I want to see Session 9!
-LOL at your girl! Buahahaha
-But the creepiest of this post? THE KID!!!!!!! I'm sure kids like this were the reason I hated kids at some point in my life. I thankfully got over it. Great post, it brought out the LOLS

LOL! My daughter is a little "mother" too. She's nine and, trust me, it does get worse. About a month ago, I stayed home with a stomach bug and she complained that she was sick too so I kept her home. She confessed to her father later that she had faked it so that she could stay home and help me feel better. That kid deserves an Oscar! What will I do when she's 16? (shudder)

It's funny, I usually love it when a kid takes to me like that...and I lurve having my shaved head touched...though, more by pretty women than little kids.

Dude, I'm telling you, Exorcist III.

It's classic for kids to start wanting to take care of their single parents. They worry. It's a task, but you have to show them all the ways that you are doing just fine and yet also indulge their impulse so they feel needed as well as loved. I think we know she knows she's loved.

Aww, see you just have an affinity for kids...they just take to you...bwahahaha...poor sick kid just wanted a friend and you were all creeped out...for shame!

Just kidding I hate that! I always have kids cling to me and there are times it is just kinda strange. Especially when their parents act all oblivious to it. You know the parents are just thankful for the break! lol

Love the Creep Friday posts! Really fun!

Glad you liked Session 9. That has been one of my favorites for awhile. Flicks with a high creep factor are tough to find, or maybe my creep threshold is just off.

I forgot all about Session 9! That movie scared the bejeezus out of me - much more so than Fourth Kind
