A conversation with my husband

After "60 Minutes," we turned on CNN. At 9 pm, there was a biography of Sarah Palin.
Me: I'll read the Time article, but I don't think I can watch this. Do you agree?
Ken: Yeah. Do you want to watch the Alaska Alien?
Me: Huh? Oh, I didn't know the last Alien movie takes place in Alaska! [We've been watching all of the Alien movies over the past couple of weeks.]
Ken: Huh? [laughs] No! Do you want to watch the LAST Alien movie, not the ALASKA Alien movie!"
Me: Oh! I guess I was thinking of someone else!
[laughter, followed by a terrorist fist bump]

Excellent picture choice, and use of terrorist fist bump.

Read the NY Times piece from Sunday's paper for another good look at the Alaska alien.

I just caught some of the film the other night and remembered how well it was made. I also remeber an Exorxist comment from the Alien entry from before, and reminded me of a short story. I remember my parents watching it when I was very little, and they told us to go to bed. Naturally, my brother and I snuck out to see what was on. Boy, let me tell you I let out a scream so loud it could have broke the windows. My brother and I did get mildly punished, but they knew I would no longer sneak out to see what the grown ups were watching. After that I never did, and it haunted me for years. It dosn't bother me as much now, but I don't feel the need to rent it from the video store either.

Besides, the "Alaska Alien" might give monsters a bad name :o)
