Halloween and horror movies

So yet another Halloween is here and at the moment I am sat watching some thing on TV about horror movies, and it was this that made me see just how much movies have really changed over the years and not always for the better.

When I was young...well younger , it seemed that movies were truly horrifying. the kind of terror that even hours after I had seen them I would lay in my bed and still have the images play in my mind and would give me the chills.

back in the 80's horror movies were soooo good, well most of them and they were made to scare both visually and mentally and some of the actors were and still are some of the very best in the world. and so were the movies, if I had to name a top five horror movies I think they would be

5 pet cemetery
4 Poltergeist
3 exorcist
2 night of the living dead
1 Salem's lot

Nothing scares me like the original Salems lot , I always remember a scene with a vampire scraping its long nails at a window trying to get in to a house to bite the neck of the victim, the vampire had glowing eyes and long nails and pale skin and no soul. truly terrifying. they could not go out is sunlight as they would burn to a cinder.

Now if you look at vampires they are stylish and sleek and they all look like super models and when they go in to sunlight instead of instantly burning to a crisp they glisten and sparkle. not scary at all ( Twilight ) they have become fashion icons, I am sorry to say but in my opinion vampires have taken a turn for the worst .

'but in general it seems that horror movies just don't really scare anymore , maybe the odd one will give a bit of a scare but nothing like the good old ones, if you can I would suggest that if you read this you make a attempt to watch my top 5 movies. I bet they will scare you.

I hope you all have a scary Halloween but a safe one.

Great news!!!

This month has been a very good month for me, and here are the reasons why.

Firstly and most important I will be going to see my Jenn again in December, We are both very excited to be together again, the last time we was together was in June so we have a lot to catch up on and I cant wait to be with her, I miss her so very much every day . I have booked the ticket and even got my travel insurance already sorted out, all I need to do now is get my train ticket sorted and I'm all set. I will let you all know our adventures as we have them.

the second news is that I have been nominated as the king of customer care for my city by customers. which I am very happy about and is a great thing, I love my job and to be nominated for a award for doing something I love is Awesome. so thank you customers who nominated me.
this is the third time I have been nominated for this award so I must be doing something right. When it comes to my job though I always try to make it as fun and pleasant of a experience as possible not only for me but for the people who I serve.

Tough target

I have been aiming to loose a little weight over the last couple of months , when I started this project I weighed in at 14 stone/ 196 pounds. my target was 13 stone/184 pounds.

Thursday of this week I hit my target and I am now just giving it another week to make sure I stay at the weight, I don't want to find tomorrow that I wake up and have put a pound on and have to restart the process again.

I have had to change a few things while I have been on my diet mainly what I eat and how I eat it and also I love a bottle of coca cola but I had to give that up for a while and I found that more than anything it was the coke that was the main problem, I would drink 6 bottles a day, only the smaller ones but they had such a affect on my weight loss once I stopped drinking them.

I run almost every day about 2.5 miles and I only eat a cheese salad sandwich before work and then nothing till after, roughly about 9 hours , but I was drinking coca cola, I got down to the last two pounds of my weight that I needed to loose but I just could not move it, for about three weeks I couldn't move the last two pounds and I knew I needed to stop drinking the coca cola , I needed to get drastic , so I stopped the coca cola and changed to bottled water. I now drank 4 of the bottles of water a day. and within a week I was down to my last pound to loose, and on Thursday I weighed my self and I had hit 13 stone dead on. on crazy thing I noticed though is that for about three days before It said in the morning that I was 13 but at night I was 13 and 1. so I weighed more at night that in the morning. but now it is 13 all the time.

I will not stop just yet though, i will just keep it up for another week and then I will change my diet to maintain my weight and I think that it will be just as tough to keep it as it was to loose the weight or should I say to stay at my desired weight.
