So, I randomly was in the library today (I love going to the library, I'm there so much the librarians know me by name). And I checked the film books section to see if they had anything new. They did have a couple of new books. One of them looked semi-interesting so I checked it out. It's called: Flickipedia: Perfect films for every occasion, holiday, mood, ordeal, and whim.
The moment I started reading...I started getting creeped out. First of all, there were exactly three films I had mentioned to my mom as we were driving to the library: The Blue Bird (I'm one of the weirdies who finds it fascinating), Psycho, and The Awful Truth (the final two were mentioned because of the similar lines: "After all a boy's best friend is his mother"-Psycho; "I guess it's true what they say: a man's best friend is his mother"-The Awful Truth). I open the book, to a section of films to watch on Mother's Day. Each section is introduced by a quote...guess what quote? "A boys best friend is his mother" as said by Norman Bates. Next I look at a section of films to watch with kids...The Blue Bird is singled out as one of few. Almost immediately after that I look at a section of films to watch on one's anniversary: The Awful Truth is suggested.
That was weird enough, but it was about to take turn for the weirder.
I looked at a chapter titled: "Sick Day". It deals with films to watch when your sick. It lists ten or twelve (and remember this is not just "old movies" but films of all time). One of those listed is Laura, the winner of my last poll on "what would you want to watch when your sick".
By then I'm just laughing. It's like some weird Twilight Zone thing or something.
A few chapters later I was looking at the very strange section titled "Childbirth". I was just gonna skip over it, when I saw the first film on the list, none other than....Pride & Prejudice (1940). The very film my mother watched the day I was born.
Hahaha, it's so weird. I'm almost too freaked out to continue on in the book ;-D. Just kidding. It's actually a pretty good book. Rather amusing and an enjoyable read.
But, boy those coincidences....
