Lost in the darkness
I was sitting at my desk, at my boring office job when the clock struck 11:08am. I had spent most of the morning fixing a previous day’s mistake, which took me half of the day, and this morning to fix. I usually do some reading to pass the time, since I work in customer service and our phones usually die down around 2pm. My shift is 8am – 4:45pm, which can make for a super long workday when there isn’t anything to occupy the time.

Turkey Bowl 2
I wrote "Turkey Bowl" to cover movies so bad they didn't really deserve whole articles dedicated to reviewing them. The first two, The Bat (1959) starring Vincent Price and Agnes Moorehead, and Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things (1972), starring cult movie director Alan Ormsby, were indeed cinematic slop fit only for feeding to hogs (well, maybe they weren't that bad).
