@redheaded&crazie I know! It seems very haute, what with the criss-crossy bits.
@melis So many good lines! "Confidentially, darling, this is more than a hangover."
@meetapossum I was a TA in a poetry seminar, and the professor had written the full text of "I Wandered Lonely As a Cloud" on the board. When I came back later to erase it, somebody had written "Cool story, bro." next to it, and then I died of laughter.
James Garfield had a special chair made, as he liked to read sitting sideways - back against one arm, legs slung over the other. So one side was higher than the other, for maximum book-curling-up-withing. Also, I believe he was a fan of Jane Austen.
@Anna Jayne@twitter Very true. I know all the words, but strung together that way?
The 'ghost' is real, for it is the lingering doubt that the reader is haunted by after finishing the story (at least that's what I said in my James seminar).
@evil melis I KNOOOOWWWW!!!! There are so many things to be said about the end. There needs to be another post for What We Talk About When We Talk About the End of Sleepaway Camp.
In the meantime, here is a link to the mp3 of "Angela's Theme", the awesome/weird (weirsome?) credits music.
I have so much more to say about Sleepaway Camp, but I don't want to spoil it for anybody who hasn't seen it. Usually I don't care about spoiling movies that are over 20 years old, but I don't want to deprive anyone of the pleasure of seeing the bizarreness for the first time!! Everybody, go watch it and we'll meet back here, okay?!
SLEEPAWAY CAMP!!!!!! Those strong New Yawk accents!! "Angeluh!!! Angeluh!!" The seemingly five-hour long capture the flag scene! The softball scene with dudes wearing the shortest shorts possible!! And two words: AUNT MARTHA!!!!!
