To Watch - Not to Eat
My life as invalid is unquestionably dull. I get up, watch TV, read, go online, read, watch TV, talk on the phone, watch movies. Again and again. By my count, I am missing:
1) A wheelchair for my injured leg
2) A girlfriend as hot (cool?) as Grace Kelly
4) Interesting neighbors up to possibly murderous deeds
On the other hand, I have air conditioning to get me through the sweltering heat.
I believe that's Jimmy Stewart 4, Me 1.
I should also point out that Rear Window also contains the most ingenious dog walking (scene) seen anywhere, the envy of upper floor apartment dwellers everywhere: lowering your dog out the window in a picnic basket, which it will hop back in when it has finished. People. Why aren't dog trainers everywhere working on this?
Anyway - should you wish to imagine my life as exciting and full of thrills, by all means, watch Rear Window. Otherwise, please: call, write, e-mail, post a response, stop by to visit, or move across the street and act suspiciously (please mail binoculars first). I'm getting crazy over here!
