Randomday: It's Not Easy Being Green
Summers in the Northwest are deceptive. You think, because it's still light, that it's relatively early in the evening. But then you realize it's 10:00 and the little kids aren't in bed yet, and the next morning is a killer. And then you stay up to watch Psycho because Secundus has always wanted to see it, and it's 11:30 and there's no way you're going to be able to sleep. In the first part of the movie, where she pulls over to sleep by the highway just north of L.A., and the cop picks up her trail, I recognized the hill from the establishing shot. We stay at a new Holiday Inn there nearly every Spring break. If only it had been there then, she might never have gone to the Bates Motel. Tonight, Puss In Boots is on the agenda.
