How’s That For a Slice of Fried Gold?!: A Then and Now Post

Fried Gold

I’m one of those people who can watch the same 20 movies over and over (and over) again. Number of views of my core comfort movies, those flicks I turn to when I’m feeling bummy or just in need of something familiar, can easily be counted in triple digits. A number of my friends are the same way. A girlfriend of mine used to put Fight Club on in the background while she was cleaning or tending to busy work, which makes my Beetlejuice-and-a-bath look downright normal (I kid; there’s no TV in my bathroom. It seems like that set-up is just asking for trouble.) ๐Ÿ˜‰

All that to say I’ve seen – or listened to, or simply absorbed through celluloid osmosis – Shaun of the Dead, a beloved movie and assuredly my favourite zombie flick, A LOT. So when I was looking for some zombie movie inspiration to satisfy a Halloween challenge I’m participating in on Instagram, I thought I’d turn to Shaun and the gang and their quirky adventures (“quirky adventures” being a charming euphemism for “being torn limb from limb…with British humour.”) That I did a very similar design last year (see below) is simply an added bonus, because I love going back over old manicures to see how much my technique has improved. Noting an appreciable difference in the quality of my nail art is a great motivator, and keeps me continually reaching and stretching beyond my comfort level (that being primarily cartoon pigs wearing hats.) But a person’s got to grow, even if their taste in movies never does. ๐Ÿ™‚
