I am very distraught at the moment. I have watched a movie that was little more than poorly written fan fiction based on a series of books that I absolutely adored. WTF Hollywood? Is it not bad enough that HBO takes such huge liberties with their own shows calling it “adult” tv that you need to fuck shit up too?
I am talking about Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.
I was soo excited to see this movie when I heard they were making a movie. I gobbled up the books as fast as I could and sat in awe over a story that I could only dream of writing. When I heard about the movie, I was giddy with excitement to see the characters I read about on the big screen and experience their adventures in a whole new way.
I first became uneasy when I saw the cast. I wasn’t sure about Eve Green…she isn’t what I envisioned. I was also curious about the Hollows. Then I saw the trailer, and I wasn’t wowed in the least. Then I read the reviews and my dreams crashed and burned. I pretended it didn’t exist and never went to the theater to see it.
Yesterday, I had some time between coming home from something and going back out for something and decided what the hell, I will take a look at it On Demand. Much less than a movie ticket and had hopes it may be more than I everyone else was saying.
It was dreadful.

I know, I am late to the game here. However, in my we have all been sick since Thanksgiving with something or other. Pod ended up with walking pneumonia and thought she may have to go to the hospital. When we finally got a combo of antibiotics that worked and got her well, Hubs came down with pneumonia as well. Then BH ended up with a stomach virus. We managed to be well during Christmas, but then Hubs and I both got hit with a wicked cold. Now we are finally recovering and trying to get the energy up to put away the Christmas stuff.
In other news, this should be my last year at SNHU. My last class end in November. I am not sure how I feel about that…kinda scary knowing I have student loans to pay off! All and all I think it did help me to be better at editing and maybe even at writing. We will see!
Time to go back and sit on the couch and get warm. It finally decided to be winter here!
Wow. 2016 has really thrown me for a loopy loop. I had soo many deaths in my family this year and then some of my classes were less than stellar. I finally feel like I can half breathe again. I am still struggling with my mom’s death from March. I am having issues with other members of my family as well that just have me so pissed off… Have you ever been so pissed off at someone that you don’t even want to see their name, even if it isn’t THEIR name? Yea.
I finished my last workshop class, had another class and now I am in my capstone class. This has me seriously anxious. I never really felt like my writing was worth much, but now I have to prove that it is. How can you prove it when you don’t believe it…just in time for Turkey Day? I am also working on NaNoWriMo this year. I am wondering if I am biting off more than I can chew, but life goes and I feel like I need to be writing something, anything, even if it is bad.
Anyway, hopefully things will settle and I will only have one crisis at a time and I can start writing here and at Uncombed Cats again. Here’s to hoping!
