FINAL GIRL explores the slasher flicks of the '70s and '80s...and all the other horror movies I feel like talking about, too. This is life on the EDGE...beware yon spoilers!

Dec 20, 2008

...and to all a good night.

Well, children, I'm afraid it's time to say goodbye for...for...some amount of time. Today I'm jetting off to the magical land known as "the other coast" to celebrate what's known as "the holidays" in a whirlwind tour of New England. Yesterday I was picking oranges in my backyard, tomorrow I'll be battling several inches of snow. This does not thrill me; however, being in New England means that I'll be able to go to an actual Dunkin' Donuts and buy an actual cup of Dunkin' Donuts coffee. This thrills me very much.

I'm not sure whether or not The Internet exists on the east coast, so posting for the next two weeks or so will be sporadic at best. My AMC columns will still post on Wednesdays, however; in fact, one went up a few days ago where I blabbed about...dun dun dunnnn...elevators in horror movies. Elevators? I'm not really a fan, although they serve a noble purpose.

I hope your end of the year celebrations, whatever they may be, are bitchin. I've got lots of surprises in store for 2009*, and I hope you'll be around to check 'em out. Thanks for being the most awesomest readers who ever read a blog!

Whatever you do while I'm gone, don't be naughty. PUNISH!

Just in case the song "Leaving on a Jet Plane" wasn't already stuck in your head - up here they're calling the current weather system "SNOWMAGEDDON"!!!

Merry X-Mas and a Happy N-Yr. Stacie!

Merry Christmas, safe travels, HoHoHo and all that.

You mean the stories are indeed true? There are no Dunkin Donuts on the West Coast?

Here in New England, they are (literally) on every corner. I can't live without DD coffee every morning.

Guess I have to stay here then.

Happy Holidays and safe travels Stacie.

Whatever you do avoid the airport karaoke at all costs. I was reading about it this morning and it sounds like a trap!

Aaargh, I hope that New England isn't buried under enough snow like here...I hate living in Illinois at times. :(

Have a fun time and Happy Holidays. :D

I also lived many years without DD coffee. I also used to reluctantly visit the "family unit", all the while knowing I would get great coffee every day while I was there. This delighted me so. Some days I would have to go two or three times to one of the many DD's near, well near everything really.
Happy Holidays (for the politically correct)
Merry Christmas for the rest of us.

Probably a bad idea, unfortunately. The ice storm took out power all across New England - most houses are running again but it is still incredibly hard to get around, esp. since the ice storm was just followed up yesterday by a massive snowstorm - well over a foot and a half in VT & NH now.

There are Dunkin Donuts on the north of the west coast. I can promise that. I wrote an entire screenplay of "Macbeth" at a doughnut shop specifically because I was amused at the whole Dunkin/Duncan homophony.

Anyway, we'll miss your cheery creepy columny when you're not writing for us, so come back!

I did a 50-mile search around LA and got zip on the Dunks. I'm happy to say there was one waiting for me in the terminal when my plane landed, and they've actually put up 2 more in my hometown, bringing the total to 283496 Dunks in about 15 square miles.

I've been awake for a very very long time- Snowmageddon can kiss my ass!

Firstly, I can assure you that the east coast does in fact have that interwebs. It is powered by a long series of vacuum tubes that take up most of Delaware. But there wasn't anything else there to begin with so it seemed like a good spot to put them.

I am utterly in shock that you do not have Dunkin' Donuts on the West Coast. That is just total sadness.

By the way, totally dig the blog. Looking forward to reading more of it.
