Does enchantment pour out of every door?

I like Subway sandwiches. I hate eating out alone so I have gotten into the habit of making my own at home quite often, especially post Katrina. Today I had one of my better creations. I had a tuna sub but a little extra touch really added some pizazz. I like mayo and a dab of mustard on the subway roll but added a couple of tablespoons of crawfish dip a friend had given me to try. I then added my usual lettuce, tomato, thinly shaved onion, green pepper, pickles, all drizzled with a little I-talian dressing. A little american cheese to top off the tuna finished it and I must say it was quite good. Now if I can only figure out how to keep crawfish dip on hand. Hey, I'm a Louisiana boy.

One of the good things I've discovered about scanning the posts on LJ is that I find new ideas and topics that interest me and stimulate my creative little mind. I also get reacquainted with old interests that I've gotten away from or that might be new to someone else. Anyway, the subject of the tv show Night Gallery came up recently and I mentioned that one of my favorite episodes was "Brenda."

I actually have an old vhs copy of the episode and will have to watch it again soon but it brought to mind how intrigued I was with this strange story about the trauma of growing up. I did a little search (no web way back when I saw the episode) and found out it was based on a short story by Margaret St. Clair. It seems she was quite the sci-fi/fantasy writer and an early feminist to boot. I discovered a few anthologies that carry the original story and located one at a library nearby and hope to pick it up tomorrow. I can't wait to see if the story adds more to the meaning of what the writer was trying to get across.

The easiest one to find it, if you're interested, is in "Rod Serling's Night Gallery Reader," 1987 edited by Carol Serling et al. It's funny how things work out. Another little patch of emptiness filled serendipitously. A new recipe for an old standby, the tuna sub. That's usually the way, isn't it?

I usually like the turkey one myself :)

Anyway, do let us know if that story clears up the mystery of that episode. :)
