A Remake Comes to Life

I did watch, at least, some of the original of “Ghost in the Shell”.  I don’t remember it, but the name really sticks.  My stroke has done this to me before; I simply forget.   Regardless, I truly want to see this remake.  This article, between the interviewer and the Director, is good.  It really makes me want to watch it more, even with the tone the article suggests.  Enjoy.

A New Lease on Life, Well, on Sleep, at Least

Well, last night was different. When 11:00pm rolled around, I decided it was time to take the new set of meds.

Now, mind you, when I am tired, things worry me more. So, I was still concerned about taking all three meds at one time. I stood there a moment and looked at the three pills in my hand and … well, prayed just a bit.

I really do love God, but I also really did not want to meet Him in person that night! So, after turning it all over to God, I kinda just shrugged my shoulders and took them all. That didn’t, of course, alleviate all my worries, but I decided that I was really too tired to care, so I went to bed, said another prayer, and read for a few minutes.

When the words didn’t make a lot of sense and I had stopped enjoying the reading, I put down the book, turned out the lights, and FELL ASLEEP within 15 minutes. I woke up about 5:30am and, looking at the clock, thought,

“Man, it’s still early. Then, I thought, “Hey! I am awake!”

That made me happy enough to get up, go to the rest room, and stagger back to bed. I woke up again at around 8 and again at 9:30 when the alarm went off.

I realized that in some way, I had gotten in about 7-8 hours of sleep and, more importantly, over 5 were at one shot! I was still tired all day, but I think it was mostly catching up from being so tired for 3-4 days.

So, the new meds are working and I didn’t die or go into a coma! I am one happy camper.

I went to my daughter’s today and we had lunch at an Indian buffet and watched “We Bought a Zoo”. That was a great meal and it was a fabulous movie.

Based on a true story, it dealt with a father and two children to gambled it all to purchase and run a zoo. It was excellently done and kept my attention throughout. I will say that Elle Fanning (Dakota’s sister) did a great job of being the kid who everyone liked and Scarlett Johansson would bring me to a movie almost anytime.

If you haven’t seen it, check out the trailer below. Good movie.
