  1. This doesn’t sound too bad, but not something I’d go out of my way to watch. Murderous psychopath? Ill fated boating trip as in the ocean? This sounds like something that would leave me on the edge of my seat holding my breathe!

    1. It is a bit too similar to TERROR series which we watched last year.

  2. I am not feeling anything with an arctic wasteland in it right about now. We're about to get slammed with the coldest temps on record next week and I may just hide under my heated blankets until spring rolls back around.

    1. Hope you don't get snow already! Our October and November have been the hottest ever, I went to town last week in shorts! But now it is getting rainy and colder, tonight we have a very weird ultra humid fog, everything is wet from it, it is a very horrorlike setting.

    2. We've had a few light dustings, but nothing has stuck for long. I think we just need to house swap. I am all for wearing shorts in November and for humid, foggy, rainy days.

    3. You'd probably like it today as it is quite warm, although muddy and humid.

  4. I love dangerous harpooners. Don't ask me why. As long as they don't kill whales, of course. That's a given. Unless you've got a big appetite and crave some whale meat. Just so you know, I won't be joining you.

    Can I ask you a favor, Dezzzmeister? Could you say something nice to my friend Arza? HERE. She's a darker shade of blue but at least I got her to start blogging again. I owe you one! Better make that two!

    3. Harpooners need to harpoon themselves you know where!
      Will do later tonight if I can find her!

    4. Thanks, Dezz. She's right here: https://eleven57pm.blogspot.com/2019/11/sometimes-those-who-wander-are-lost-as.html

      Tell me where they need to harpoon themselves... Spell it out for me!

    5. I've visited her place and read the post but it so freakishly depressive I don't know what to write! I think she needs professional help, she sounds suicidal to me, poor woman.

    6. No, she is not. She just not in a happy place. She's one of the strongest women I know. One of the best writers, too. Don't worry about it.

    7. Hope she finds a light in her life, we know it is difficult to find sometimes, or even impossible, but what if you are the light for others? Maybe you are not supposed to enjoy light but to give light to others. Find a mission, help others, inspire others, don't wallow and despair no matter what.
