Like last week I'm dragging today. So while I try to ressussitate my brain I'll let you in on my research for today.
Where did the term "cute as a bug's ear" come from. I don't know of any bugs that have ears. And if the did, due to the whole exoskeleton thing I'm not leaning towards what ears they would have being particularly attractive. So why do we say this?
Here's my theory- I think someone was drunk.
And with October literally right next door, and most of us having little witchlets wandering about, I thought I would look up all the old kid friendly halloween flicks I loved as a kid.
The Ghost and Mr. Chicken
Arsenic and Old Lace
It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown
The Worst Witch (My ABSOLUTE FAVORITE!!)
The Witches ( I loved the book too)
Bed knobs and Broomsticks
The Nightmare Before Christmas (goes almost without saying really)
Casper ( I had such a crush on the kid who played casper)
The Black Cauldron
The Canterville Ghost (the 1986 one with Alyssa Milano is the one I remember best, but the original was pretty good too)
I hope I can find some of these on DVD for my kids, cause they made the holiday for me when I was a kid!
