Funny Haha and Funny Weird

First, the funny haha:

I was talking to my mother about the story on which I'm working. It happens to involve an extremely narcissistic mother and two daughters who grow up with the same issues and deal (or not deal) with them in completely different ways. Upon hearing this, my mother said, "It's not autobiographical is it?" I roared with laughter as I tried to say no in as many ways as I could. My mom is great.

Second, the funny weird:

A couple of weeks ago I picked up a DVD of Bette Davis movies at Costco. I've seen a lot of Bette Davis movies, but had never seen two of her most famous, Hush, Hush Sweet Charlotte and What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? I had never seen them at my local video stores, I had never seen them on Netflix (they may have the discs; we watch everything on streaming), and I had never seen them on TCM or AMC. Hush. . . Charlotte was on the DVD I purchased, but Baby Jane was not. However, about one week later, I was flipping through the television channel guide and saw Whatever Happened to Baby Jane; I was able to catch it from the beginning, while the hosts were still introducing the film.

Synchronicity is really cool.
