Braindead

I picked up a book at the library that I've been wanting to read for a while, Psycho by Robert Bloch. While there I read the first few pages and thought it was a bit familiar but since I'd seen the movie and read a detailed book on the making of the movie I figured it was probably something along the lines of the introductory paragraphs of the novel being quoted in the "making of" book.

But I decided to check my dorky list that I keep of all the books I've read. Sure enough, I read Psycho a whopping twenty-one months ago. The last time I did this was, er, this past summer where I re-read a book I first read back in 1998. What's that Bible verse about looking at yourself in the mirror and instantly forgetting what you look like?

You have horns and a long beard...and an eye-patch. How could you forget?

I keep forgetting the eye-patch. Just last month I paid an extra $2 to get into a 3-D movie with those special polarized glasses and didn't realize my folly until I sat down.
