Darn, I never saw a ghost there!

But then, I was usually there when it was full of people...and I was usually more focused on vampires (there were a pair of velvet curtains there that I wanted to steal and make into something like Armand's robe in Interview with a Vampire. Oh, how I used to drool over those curtains. I wonder if they're still there...)

"At great personal risk to himself, brave local photographer John Thompson of T.J.’s Photo and Camera, entered the Eagle Theatre and snapped random shots hoping to catch one of the wandering spirits that haunt the historic Chadron landmark. Who is this specter that wanders the aisles and spooks the help?" -

Someday, I really should do a Haunted Theatre Tour. Anybody want to come with me?

In case you're attacked by zombies today

This is very important information for Halloween.

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!

You can't say that, it's gibberish!

A friend of mine sent me this video today. Somehow, I've never seen this one, but I love love love it - it's got Shakespeare, Rowan Atkinson AND Hugh Laurie all at the same time.

Some library humor

Some library hunor, originally uploaded by mdesive.

This is a sign that was used over the summer to showcase certain topical books the library owns. It now graces an office, with a new humorous twist.

Rowan Atkinson does Shakespeare

I haven't seen this in years, but was showing Little Girl some Mr. Bean videos on YouTube and remembered it. Lucky me, somebody has posted it!

I've never been a huge fan of Mr. Bean, mostly because I like just about everything else Rowan Atkinson has done better. I find Mr. Bean kind of sad. It always bums me out when something awful happens to his car or his bear. I find it much easier to laugh at Lord Blackadder (bonus Shakespeare reference in this clip)

or Inspector Fowler.

But tonight I realized that Little Girl had no idea who Mr. Bean is, so I had to acquaint her with him. Rest assured, I haven't been depriving her of Rowan Atkinson all these years. She recognized him: "Oh, that's the guy from Rat Race and Scooby Doo!" she says. But of course I had to avoid any clips featuring mishaps with the car or bear - we don't need any uneccessary tears shed (hers or mine).

(P.S. There's another bonus on the Blackadder link: You'll get to see that Hugh Laurie is actually a) British and 2) a comedian. All you House fans need to experience that.)
