Great Halloween party last night; had fun with all the offensive costumes. Theme of the party was dedicated to Michael Jackson RIP, and Thriller. There was a full casket with a replica of Michael laid out peacefully with a white glove and a lower half face mask for all to pay tribute to the late King of Pop. Inside and outside were skeletons and a freaky little Chuckie Doll sat in the corner eyeing our every move. The night included all sorts of spirits and catered, delicious food, a bon fire and then a late night swim in the pool with grotto and then we hopped in the jacuzzi spa to warm up while looking at the stars and nearly full moon in the boo-tiful Arizona skies. The night ended with Patron shots and/or Tequila Rose and then guests were shown to their individual rooms to spend the night at the hacienda style resort. Muchas Gracias Amigos and Super Hosts Doug y Dana B.
Today was the start of Daylight Savings Time although we do not recognize changing our watches and clocks in the Great State of Arizona. We however are now on Mountain Standard Time, no longer with California and the other Pacific Standard Time States.
With this change of time came the New York City Marathon of 26.22 miles of running through the streets of New York, across bridges and ending in famed Central Park. Special recognition to a few of our Thunderbird (T-Bird) friends Kat and Arnoldo and to one of my closest friends at Thunderbird and the first person of whom I met when starting my Graduate School studies - Mr. Kurt P., congratulations on your 1st marathon and to your company ING for it's sponsorship. Also, congratulating Oracle employees Lee, Mike, and Luis, and to Janet J.'s cousin - Justine. Thank You from all participating marathoners to Janet J. of T-Bird who spent her day cheering and handing out water and motivational yells to all participants. Great Day in New York was had by all including me as I felt that I was almost there, tracking my amigos mileage on the official New York Marathon website. Sometimes I just love the new technology that we have.
Since it is the Day after Halloween, I figured it to be a good time to list the Top Ten Scariest Movies of all time according to "Scared Out of Your Wits."
1. Black Christmas - 1974; Phone calls from the killer will make your skin crawl;
2. Halloween - 1978; Who can forget Michael Myers?
3. Friday the 13th - 1980; Made look-a-like masks a staple for Halloween costumes ever since;
4. The Hills Have Eyes - 1977; OHHH, scary!
5. House of 1000 Corpses - 2003; I guess you have to see it:
6. Psycho - 1960; This is a Classic, the shower scene is critically acclaimed but one of my favorite parts is towards the end of the film with MOTHER in her chair.
7. Seven - 1994; How fitting for it's place. Remember when the emaciated guy that we think is dead starts to move?
8. Saw - 2004; The scene with the reverse bear trap!!
9. Saw II - 2005; When ........ jumps out of the bathtub!
10. Texas Chainsaw Massacre - 1974; It is hard to decide the scariest part as there are many.
My all time favorite Scary Movie is "The Shining" with Jack Nicholson; RED RUM, RED RUM; "And Here's Johnny!"
Football Sunday watching the NFL had a wicked surprise for all Arizona Cardinal Fans as were eaten alive and scratched up by the Carolina Panthers in our own dome home at the University of Phoenix Stadium. Also some football entertainment in Green Bay, Wisconsin as Bret Favre was booed in his return to the stadium as a Minnesota Vikings instead of a Green Bay Packer quarterback. Bret shook off the boos and led his new team of Vikings to a 38 - 26 victory. Here's one more for the old guys!!
