I HAVE INTERNET!!!!!! I am back amongst the living!! Still no power at my house so I have been staying with friends for the past couple of days but they didn’t have internet back till today. No idea when my house will be back up and running. We’re hoping it’s by Wednesday like promised since we have another storm coming in Wednesday/Thursday.
Me and mine were far luckier than a lot of people but it’s been a rough week. Gas is running out in Jersey, there’s food shortages, there’s been some looting…it’s going to take awhile to recover.
As for me, personally, since I work from home and have been powerless for a week, I haven’t been able to work so that’s the first thing I have to catch up on. After that, I’ll be working my way back here to blogging so expect me to start popping up in comments again. I’ll be finishing my run of the Nightmare series and then it’s on to Nostalgiathon 2012!!!! If you aren’t yet familiar, here’s the 411 (and I am copying this directly from Andy Watches Movies for times’ sake):
This has been a few months in the making but the wrapper is finally ready to be pulled off of…
In what originated as a flippant remark between Misty of Cinema Schminema and me, Nostalgiathon is finally here.
Allow me to explain!
The purpose of Nostalgiathon is to relive things from your childhood through the eyes of an adult. Since Andy Watches Movies and Cinema Schminema are both movie-focused blogs, we will be covering movies, but books, TV shows, whatever else are all fair game if you’d like to participate.
“How do I participate?” you may be wondering…It’s easy!
- If you want to write a post for Nostalgiathon, just put the words “Nostalgiathon” in the title of the post and write a little bit about your feelings of the source material as a kid and how it holds up now
- Use the following badge within the post http://andywatchesmovies.files.wordpress.com/2012/11/nostalgiathon1.jpg
- Link back to this post here on Andy Watches Movies (or the corresponding post on Cinema Schminema once she gets her power back)
- Send Misty (email@example.com) or me (firstname.lastname@example.org) an email to make sure that we compile your post on our sites
And there you have it!! You can find the original post HERE on Andy’s site and a list of who has participated so far. I’ll also repost this as a standalone post so it can be linked back too. But please join in the fun!!
Okay, I’m outtie so I can go do hella work. Catch you guys soon – and for everyone who emailed to check on me, I greatly appreciate it!! Thank you!! 🙂

YAY FOR INTARWEBS! So glad it came back, thought I was gonna go postal!
I’m just happy to be working again!! (SO MUCH WRITING TO BE DONE!!) Big UPS to you for taking in me and the refugee pupster – thank you!!
It’s nice to see you back! 😀
Thank you!! It’s nice to be back! 🙂
Welcome back! Why do those pictures look like something from a zombie movie? I hope you get your internet back soon.
Thank you!! And they look like that because here it’s basically the zombie apocalypse without the zombie part. It’s pretty crazy. And thanks, I hope we get internet and power back at my house soon too! Right now, me and the pupster are refugee’ing it.
You’re alive! I was just about to send in Dennis Quaid with his snowshoes.
*giggles* Maybe he could get us power back – go ahead and send him!
welcome back! 😀
Thanks, Victor!! 🙂
anytime. I think I’ll participate in your Nostalgia-Thon too. Great idea!
Oh, yay!! That’s awesome!! Just send me an email when you do and I’ll make sure your post goes to the list and all. 🙂
Will do! Thanks. 😀 How long should it be?
As long as you want. 🙂 Or as short as you want! I think we’re pretty much making up things as we go so do whatever you want! 😉
Cool and do I add the pics? sorry about all the questions lol
No, no ask away! 🙂 If you have particular pics you want added, then yes…otherwise I’ll look up a few screenshots. 🙂
sweet! I’m on it! 😀
Yay!!! And thank you! 🙂
Happy yr ok though..
Thank you! We got lucky considering. A week or longer without power is nothing compared to some people.
Glad all is okay – those are kind of some spooky pics you posted.
Thanks! Yeah, that’s what my local grocery store currently looks like. You should see the gas lines and all the rules that have gone into affect. Mostly staying inside and just hoping it will all be okay.
Sounds like controlled chaos.
So far yes. Let’s hope it stays controlled. I only got power back today (8 days without) and tons of people still don’t have power and we have a nor’easter hitting us in approximately 2 days. Very exciting times…
Hang in there. It will get better.
I know. And thank you! 🙂
I’m glad you are alright!
Thank you!! 🙂
Glad your okay, hope you get to go back soon and have the POWER!!!!
Thanks!! w00t power!! One day, one day, it will be mine again…
Nice to see your OK Layne 🙂
Thanks, Ty. 🙂
Welcome back! Excited for Nostalgiathon!
Thanks! And me too!! 🙂
Your nostalgiathon sounds a lot funner than my horrific movie watching marathon.
They sound equally fun to me! I love a good horrific movie watching marathon! Can’t wait to catch up and see how yours is going. 😉
I am immediately regretting this decision after the first movie.
NOOOOO!!! You cannot EVER regret a horrific movie watching marathon! I would do one myself except…well…that’s kind of every day here at CS… 😉
haha good point. Well I am four movies in and trying to knock out a couple more tonight and tomorrow. I am heading to Dallas, TX for a wedding and film festival coverage so I have to literally marathon several of these a day and get them write-ups
Yikes, good luck!! But yay film fest coverage! I like the sound of that!
Well I happen to be in Dallas around the same time as the wedding I am going to. I know one of the festival directors and she is passing along some VIP passes to a few films. I am hoping to see them and get a few reviews done for them. In Feb. will be big festival coverage with the True False Fest. All documentary and non-fiction films will be screened there and I totally me Ti West and Morgan Spurlock last year 😀
It’s time to quit this whole “hurricane” crutch – time to get back to work on CS.
Blah, blah, vampire emergency, blah. In other words, yeah, yeah, no more “hurricane” crutch, back to my regularly scheduled no eating or sleeping or living ways. ;-p
You make me sound like some kind of monster!!!!! All I ask for is some more CS….. 8 ( I will cry myself to sleep tonight……
*giggles* E., you know I love you in that strictly platonic, if we were actually in the same state and hung out, we’d drink a whole bunch of beer way! No crying yourself to sleep. And CS is on its way back. Promise. Also a certain review for you and some other things we have discussed will be forthcoming. A week of no power leaves one with plenty of time to do things like write and catch up on reading! 🙂
Right back atcha and YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY
(of course I am glad you and your friends are all safe and sound)
I know and I appreciate it. 🙂
You rock : )
Glad to know you’re ok. Now get back to work! lol
Glad you’re back and happy everything is sort of OK (too bad about the internet…).
Thank you!! And yeah – do you know what all you CANNOT DO without internet? It was seriously like being unplugged from the Matrix or something, lol. Luckily, I’m old school and had a huge stack of books to keep me occupied.
Glad to see you back, I’m looking forward to following your blog and to hopefully participating in the Nostalgiathon.
Hope everything’s okay where you are. Take care! 🙂
Thanks so much mskatykins! Look forward to following your site too and I really hope you get to do Nostalgiathon! I think it’s gonna be loads of fun. 🙂
Yay power and yay nostalgiathon!
