I must confess, I am a jerk! Not only a jerk but a stupid jerk! And for me to admit such a thing is very hard because I have always thought of myself as a woman who was smart and clever. But those days are over! Let me explain why and what happened. Malcolm had to go to the Cape to pick up his van, so I was alone for a few days with no one but my cats and dogs. This particular Friday night I received a call from someone who told me that my computer was about to crash. Well, I thought that perhaps this wasn’t true but he told me that he worked for Microsoft as a trouble shooter and that he was there to help me. So, I sucked up for this scam! First he showed me, on my computer screen how my…

[Warning. Spoiler alerts ahead] Picture it: you are living your regular routine life. When suddenly you discover that your wife is a twisted, calculating, manipulative, vindictive, murderous psycho. That’s what Nick Dunne (Ben Affleck) has to contend with in “Gone Girl.” “Gone Girl” is a horror movie for adults. And it’s the surprise blockbuster hit of the season. Even in the best relationships, there are times where you look at your partner and just don’t have a clue what’s going on in her head. “Gone Girl” takes this uncomfortable concept and creates a nightmarish worst case scenario about what your wife really might be pondering while she’s sitting there expressionless. Th…
