Comments for The Ring

The Ring: 01/04/05

Ian and I watched the Ring last night (the 2002 U.S. remake) and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We will be renting (or buying) the original to watch ASAP. The film scared Ian more than it did me. I absolutely love this type of horror / ghost story. It has all the elements: something that can kill anyone (yet allows survivors), rotting creepy architecture, voyeurism, film recording things that can't (or shouldn't) be seen, creepy dolls, creepy horses, forgotten (and best forgotten) places, and of course the deadly coda!

It's Raining Again:

I had wanted to take another quick walk this afternoon but it's currently pouring rain. I did walk earlier today. I took my usual walk down to Britain street by way of the Walgreen's. The weather was threatening then and by the time I was back to the office I had felt more than a couple cold drops of drizzle on my nose.

We Have Hot Water:

It was obvious that our water heater was on the way out. Our gas bills were astronomical, water temperature was touch and go and the thing was noisy. We gave up and had a new one installed today. It's a highly efficient 40 gallon 238 therms per year water heater. When it was installed and the old one taken out, there was apparently a huge rust stain on the old one — further proof that the old one would have given up the ghost soon. I can't wait to try it out with a hot shower tonight. Tomorrow Ian will see if we can get a rebate from PGE.
