But ya are, Blanche! Ya are in that chair!

I came home from work a little early because my head aches. I’m the unfortunate recipient of inherited migraines. I’ve had one lingering, coming and going as it pleases, for the last month. I’ve taken every medication, with the exception of this one, in trying to shake this thing. When all else failed, I decided to console myself with a movie. Lucky for me I had a new Netflix waiting in my mailbox when I stumbled in from the rain.

Whatever Happened to Baby Jane is one of my favorite movies. I think the drama behind the scenes makes it even more fun to watch. It hasn’t made my headache fall by the wayside, however, and that’s sad.

I’m going to get some rest and watch Real Housewives of Orange County because I haven’t gotten in my daily quota of really awful television shows that I should be too embarrassed to admit I watch.

    I LOVE this movie! Little in film is as revolting as watching Old Baby Jane sing “I’m Writing. A Let-ter. To Dad-dy.” This was one of the first movies I got on DVD I think. Come over anytime to watch it. (You could bring Serendipity?)

    This post made me squee uncharacteristically. We LOVE that movie! We’re always quoting things back and forth to each other and even our 5-year-old is starting to pick up on it. “You didn’t eat your din-din,” he’s fond of telling us.

    Hope your headache is better soon. Migraines suck.

    I watched the movie again, but with commentary, and the two guys whose names I can’t remember who were doing the tlkaing, were saying that there were few, if any, actresses who have ever been willing to transform into someone so ugly for a role. They named a few roles I wasn’t familiar with and then I thought maybe the one most recent possibility was Charlize Theron in Monster. But I can’t say that anyone ever measures up to Bette Davis’ performance in this one.
