Fried Green Tomatoes and a nice Chianti.

Fried Green Tomatoes is on Lifetime right now. I can't help but watch. I think it's a mutation in my DNA.

In general I'm not a sucker for chick flicks. It's true that I discuss vaginas and periods and boobies on this blog but I'm not doing so in the sense that I'm full of female power. You will never catch me dancing around a kitchen table, huffing in the reek of scented candles, wearing my BFF's jeans and declaring that "I WILL be loved for ME!" The only time I want to hear, "You go girl" is when I'm in a bathroom.

I'm eagerly awaiting the gooey bloodbath of Saw IV. It will be so awesome.

Yet here I sit, enraptured, waiting for Kathy Bates to screech, "Towanda!" and purposely crash into a some skanky woman's Volkswagon. I will feel vindicated!

Perhaps it's the cannibalism in this movie that puts me over the XX chromosome hump. One of my very favorite movies is "Silence of the Lambs". Plenty of goo in that one too.

In Karen Durbin's list of the 50 greatest chick flicks, published by "O" magazine, I find that I have enjoyed 14 in the list (Someone left #50 off the website.) #14 is "Aliens", which I counted, and has goo too. Fine, I'm fickle.

Excuse me a moment, Kathy is Towanda-ing......

"I'm older and have more insurance." Awesome.


  1. I haven't even seen or heard of the majority of those movies.

    I saw the first Saw. Screamed a lot too. I haven't seen any of the other ones. I am such a screaming baby when it comes to horror flicks, but I do enjoy watching them.

    I was totally thinking about Fried Green Tomatoes just a couple days ago. Someone was parked in my spot at the apartment complex I live in. I really felt like ramming my car into the offending car. I was *thisclose* to actually doing it. Joe would've flipped. He was in the car with me, so I just pretend rammed the guy and then left a note on his winshield.

  2. I don't know the movie, "Fried Green Tomatoes" but I do enjoy eating fried green tomatoes. And fried zucchini. Movies called Saws, any number, I don't know but I did see "Silence of the Lambs" and it was entertaining. Frightening to think that there might be people like him living among us. Maybe even next door.

  3. You're such a girly girl. (My count was 13).
