My roommate is gone for the weekend, which means that I'm considering the luxurious, decadent possibilities of ordering take-out and mopping the kitchen floor.

In preparation for tomorrow's hurricane, my roommates and I have stocked up on the essentials: cookies and vodka.

(I've been through a lot of hurricanes in Florida. I find that I have a difficult time partaking in the hysteria that attends hurricanes in this frozen North.)

[my brother and I were discussing vampire movies]
ME: And then, of course, there's that movie about the guy with the hat and the totally ridiculous name.

BROTHER: What?

ME: You know! That movie! It was a Hammer film from the '70s. Its main character had the name of a lame superhero. And he had a hunchbacked sidekick. They fought vampires.

BROTHER: Not ringing any bells.

[12 hours later]

ME: Oh, yeah! Captain Kronos!

BROTHER: What?

God only knows how he escaped Captain Kronos, Vampire Killer -- my memory of the plot is hazy, but I can distinctly remember watching the film with my father on multiple occasions. Obviously, I must now subject my brother to this movie. Captain Kronos! With a name that bad, it's got to be great!
