This was in the library one time. It is metal, painted yellow and blue, and in the shape of a child. I think it was made to hold notices for upcoming events at the library, but at the time it was empty.

***

Who ya gonna call?

Ghost busters!

This is a fun song and a great movie, even if it is kind of silly.

What it reminds me of is taking my girls to the skating rink every Saturday morning. They took skating lessons for awhile, and this song played a lot over the loudspeakers. I heard it before I ever saw the movie.

“Ghostbusters Theme Song”, by Ray Parker, Jr., is from the movie, “Ghostbusters”, and is on the album, “Ghostbusters: Original Soundtrack Album”. It was released in 1983, and is on the Arista label. It was written by Ray Parker, Jr.

Well, anyway…I had to put that song on here because it’s the first thing I thought of for the prompt word, ‘call’.

My grand-daughter loves anything creepy and strange, and Halloween things, and loves to hunt for ghosts, too. Except this week she was all into Christmas and singing me songs, like the Partridge in a Pear Tree, with the 4 calling birds!

I’ve had several jobs of calling people on the phone…yes, the dreaded and hated telemarketers. I was one. Actually, those jobs were the most fun I’ve ever had at working. I had my share of cranky people, rude comments, and hang ups, but still, I liked it. And I really normally hate talking on the phone. My friends would call me and we’d talk and I’d enjoy it, but I was never one to initiate a call. Even now, it’s rare, except to call a business to see what time they open/close. Anything else, I get all flustered and can’t say it right, what I’m trying to get across. Probably the telemarketing job was easy, because we had a script we had to say every time, and then we could ad lib a bit. Also, the other employees were a fun bunch of people to work with, along with the employers of these many jobs I had.

Well, enough about this for now…

I’ll wish y’all a happy Saturday, with calls or no calls, ghosts or no ghosts…however you like it. 🙂

Bun Vac – Stream of Consciousness Saturday – SOCS

Bun Vac – Stream of Consciousness Saturday – SOCS

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS March 30/18

***

For today’s SOCS we have the word, ‘bun’, to write about. Thanks for the prompt, Linda!

***

The first thing I think of when I hear or see the word, ‘bun’, is the Bun Vac.

What’s a Bun Vac, you ask? It’s from a 2005  animated movie called, “Wallace and Grommit: Curse of the Were-Rabbit”.

This is a funny movie about Wallace, inventor extraordinaire, and his dog Grommit. He invents a type of vacuum that is used to suck up all the naughty rabbits that are eating the ‘veg’ in the garden.  The Bun Vac is reminds me of the kind of tubes you see at a drive-in bank place. You put something into the container, then put it in the pneumatic vacuum tube to be sucked into the main bank.

Anyway, we thought it was hilarious, and we’d threaten the cats with using the Bun Vac on them, if they were being naughty. Of course it was just a joke. We still have conversations about the Bun Vac, even today in certain circumstances.

So…now I’ve typed ‘bun’ a lot of times, and mentioned rabbits. Maybe that is what the prompt was about? Rabbits and bunnies for the Easter Sunday? Or maybe I could have talked about the type of hair-do shaped into a ‘bun’! I’ve never worn my hair that way, but think about it sometimes. Oh, maybe ‘bun’ is for the type of bread shaped into buns or rolls. There are all kinds of buns, like the bottom buns I sit on when I type these SOCS posts? haha!

Well, on that note, I wish y’all a happy weekend! 🙂

Here’s Day # 1 Question:

What movie could you, or did you, see over and over again when you were a teenager?

I didn’t go to a whole lot of movies back then, but this is one I remember was my favorite. I’m pretty sure I saw it a couple of times at the movie theater, and I’ve watched it many times on TV since then. I still love it.

The movie I’m talking about is…”To Sir With Love”. It came out in 1967, and starred Sidney Poitier. It was based on the semi-autobiographical novel by E. R Braithwaite (pub. 1959). It features a lot of good pop music, and Lulu, a prominent singer, sang the title song. It also featured some music by the Mindbenders, a band from the same time. Funny story…a friend and I saw the Mindbenders in person, when they came to our town for a concert. We didn’t get to go to the concert, but we did go out to the airport to greet them when they arrived. We were thrilled to actually see them, of course! 🙂

Here’s the movie trailer from the movie. Did you go see this one? Enjoy!
