Telling tales from around the world

The Blob!

with 5 comments

OMG – I forgot about the Bonomo Turkish Taffy! I’m missing the movies more than I realised… I must need a movie related project… Or it might be getting on time to make a pilgrimage to the Bronx and see if I can rustle some of those old ghosts…

    • I first watched it when I was about 7, when I lived in the Bronx, in an old-style tenement apartment building. We didn’t have a TV, so I watched it at my best friend Marilyn’s apartment and then had to walk home alone, in the dark, through these tunnels that connected the buildings, that had rats, and stunk of urine and sometimes you’d get ambushed by bullies. They didn’t scare me, I knew how deal with them. But the Blob! now that was scary! So was Frankenstein. And the mummy. (OK, and I had a fear of closed toilet seats. I was afraid when I lifted the lid there would be a disembodied head in there! Very over active imagination…)

  2. Just thought of this after I hit post: I remember going to the movies in London with my mum, and getting Orangina.

    • Have you had Orangina recently? My husband loves it – to my it is as sweet as maple syrup… I could put a couple of teaspoons in a glass of water and drink it that way…
