Catherine Tate

So if you've been around me lately, you might have heard me mention Catherine Tate once or twice but probably many more times than that. She is my new favorite thing on YouTube. She's a British comedian with her own sketch show in England called The Catherine Tate Show. She has lots of great characters including: Lauren, Ally, The Annoying Coworker, and the subject of this post, The Frightened Woman. Watch the following clip then continuing reading.

So a few weekends ago I had some friends that were down from Idaho. One of them needed to take the GRE and the other two just came along for a weekend away. Well one night I was sharing my new found love of Catherine Tate with them. We watched several of the videos on YouTube and the one shown above was the last one we watched. Of course I had the sound nice and loud so that no one would miss anything. I left my browser up and everyone went to bed. Two of my friends were sleeping on air mattresses pretty close to the computer. I had gone upstairs for bed. Sometime in the very early morning hours I was awakened to some screaming. I heard it and then there was silence. Then again another scream followed by silence. It repeated a third time. And then there was continual screaming. I was trying to figure out what was going one. I thought it was happening outside. It wasn't until the next morning when I was talking to my friends and they told me that the last clip we watched replayed itself in the night. My friend, Josh, is pretty much blind without his glasses. He was over at the computer in the middle of the night trying to figure out how to turn the video off without much luck. Now when I watch this clip it is extra special! :)

** As best as I can figure out my web browser (Chrome) is a beta version and is constantly updating itself. I'm guessing it did an update that night which shut the browser down and then reopened all the pages that it had open thus playing the frightened woman sketch all over again.
