It was supposed to be a movie a day, but I knew that wasn't happening. With work and wanting to get out or sleep all day on my days off, it was inevitable I'd fall behind schedule. There's no real reason for it, but it is fun and it's in the spirit, so I've been watching horror/spooky themed stuff for Halloween. I know my final day will be Halloween 3 (which will become a yearly tradition since the movie kicks so much ass), but here's what I've watched so far:

1. Halloween
2. Halloween 2
3. Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers
4. Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers
5. Halloween 666: The Origin of Michael Myers (Producer's Cut)
6. Bubba Ho-Tep
7. Halloween 6: The Curse of Michael Myers (Unrated Director's Cut)
8. Halloween 6: The Curse of Michael Myers (Theatrical Cut)
9. Halloween H20
10. Halloween Resurrection
11. From Beyond
12. The Town That Dreaded Sundown
13. Hellroller
14. Freddy vs Jason
15. Friday the 13th (2009)
16. Blood Runs Cold

I've been trying to spend a little more time with my Dad lately. I love him very much, but sometimes it's hard to connect because while there are a lot of similarities in things we enjoy, personality wise we're very different.

One easy way to spend time is the driving lessons. He's not exactly the most patient person in the world, but he has been surprisingly lenient and calm in dealing with me for the past few weeks. I was abysmal when I started, but I've gotten a decent amount of things down pretty well. Once we finish up the lessons we go to the flea market. I always browse through the movies looking for movies, mainly VHS', while he looks for cds, toys or spare parts for things around the house. We usually get some food and crack jokes about some of the ridiculous things we end up seeing.

Other than that though, we don't really do much. Occasionally we might have a short conversation about something, but that's about it. He doesn't exactly enjoy going out, which of course I do. He'd rather stay home and watch sports (which I don't enjoy). I kinda miss the times when we used to watch t.v. shows and movies together. Does this sound lame? Maybe, but I don't really care.

One of our biggest differences is our attitudes towards relationships. When I say that, I mean any kind, be it romantic or with friends. His thing is more about what he can get from someone, while I tend to be more about who I enjoy being around.

Throughout my life, he's always said that I was too nice and do too much for others. Not to say that this hasn't led to me being taken advantage of a few times, but in the end, I really don't know how else to be. For me, if I do someone a favor, as long as the person is appreciative, then I'm fine with that. Him on the other hand, he pretty much DEMANDS a favor back. Whereas I enjoy spending time with my girlfriend, he seems to think it's a chore. I do nice things for her because I want to, he does it...well, you get the idea.

I find it funny how he's told me not to say "I love you." Ha! I've been telling Ria that for years, even when we were just friends. I meant it as much then as I mean it now. He seems to think my love and kindness is a bad thing or a weakness, but I definitely don't. I know he doesn't tell me these things to be a jerk, but this is just something we will never see eye to eye on. Oh well, in the end, I know he loves me and I'm grateful for all the help he's given me. Now, I just gotta get in more driving time...
