Sidetracked

I’ve always had a problem with getting sidetracked which I suppose is all part of my ADHD, but sometimes it really gets annoying as hell. It seems to be getting worse lately. I’ll make plans to get certain things done and of course they end up waiting for yet another week. It’s not that I’m lazy, far from it, I just get sidetracked sometimes. I tell myself that I will get X, Y, and Z done but first a quick peek at Twitter, blog reading, catch up on what’s going on in the world, or whatever else and then next thing you know it’s 3am or later. A bit too late to start doing projects at 3am especially with how long it takes me to finish a task. I was always so organized, what the hell happened over the last few years?

Typo Police

People love catching my typos. I’m a really good speller in real life, nearly made it to the state spelling bee championship back in junior high. Sometimes I write my blogs just before going to bed though which means sometimes I make a goof. Some people are very quick on that. This is not a slam though, don’t worry. I don’t mind too much. I’m such a perfectionist that I hate leaving typos in if found.

The Roar of Thunder

Now for something fun. “Thor: Ragnarok” was an awesome movie. Marvel Studios continues their good track record of dishing out good comic book hero movies with great story, amazing actors, stunning effects, and overall feeling of making the audience want more. Great blend of action, adventure, and well timed comedy. With the disappearance of Odin, Thor’s sister Hela breaks free of her prison and is determined to rule Asgard or destroy it (and eventually the universe because that’s just what villains want to do). Thor must break out of his own prison across the universe and stop Hela’s destruction. The chemistry between all of the actors really make the story come together nicely. New movie so won’t give too much away, which I hope I don’t usually give much away anyways. If you’re a fan of the MCU, you will love this movie. Even if you don’t follow the Marvel movies and just like sci-fi and superhero movies in general, you will love this movie. Remember to stay seated throughout the credits as there are two extra scenes (the one with Jeff Goldblum is worth the wait in itself). A mighty score of 9 out of 10, highly recommended.

I hate this place. This life, this house, this planet, this universe. I need out. I never wanted any of it. Not one single little piece.

Ninety Minutes I Won’t Get Back

I very rarely have low ranking reviews on here because most of the movies I watch are actually good. There are some however that, while sitting in an empty office doing my work, I get curious about and then cannot look away even if it’s bad. Flipping through cable channels at my desk, I came across the horror flick “Eloise”. Let us use the term “horror” loosely here. The setting for this movie is the now defunct Eloise Insane Asylum, a real place located in Westland, Michigan. I’ve been past it, creepy place but then again most abandoned places are.

The main character, upon the death of his father, must return to Detroit where he finds that he stands to inherit a tidy sum of money as long as he can produce the death certificate of his aunt who was a patient at Eloise. Instead of just going to county records like most people would in this situation, which would be a whole lot easier but hey it’s just a movie, he goes to the administrative building for the hospital. He decides the wait period for the records is too long so he enlists the help of an old friend as well as a mentally handicapped young man who seems obsessed with all things Eloise and his sister. The foursome break into the abandoned asylum to search for the needed records and find much more than they bargained for.

While this is pretty much your standard people-trespass-onto-creepy-locale-and-end-up-getting-into-trouble type movie, I’ve seen better. The actors could not draw me into the story. Very little character development to make me really feel for any of them and the plot just did not make sense. I guess I just like my horror to be, you know, scary. At least Chernobyl Diaries had some good jump scares and freaky zombies though that one was still a bit “MEH”. I score it at 4 out of 10. You can find better.

It Won’t Go Away!

Ever have a song haunt you for a couple of days? Sometimes it’s not even a currently popular song. Sometimes just a lone one hit wonder from your past. It can drive a girl bonkers sometimes. At work, many times I listen to the music choice channels at my desk. Music helps keep me somewhat focused on my task. I have a channel I normally listen to, but sometimes they start to get overly repetitive and I need to change the station for a bit. Yesterday I turned to a channel that plays songs from the past three decades. “The Humpty Dance” by Digital Underground popped on, a popular one hit wonder from my school days. Weird but catchy song. Anyways, after a few hours, the music looped back around and just before leaving for the day, that song came on again. Not giving it much thought, later that evening on Twitter somebody was spouting out the lyrics for some unknown reason making it an odd coincidence in itself since I just heard this obscure but once famous song from the early 1990s twice in one day. This morning I wake up with the damn song in my head on a freakin’ loop. So very annoying. I get to work, turn on the music choice, and there it is. I decide to turn on one of the MTV channels that actually play music videos, and there it is again! So screw it I turned it to whatever channel was playing Kitchen Nightmares for the afternoon. I guess it could be worse though, could have been The Irish Rovers’ “Unicorn Song”.

What Are They Telling Me?

Dreams can be strange. I had a dream this morning that for some reason stuck in my head and I’m not sure why. Apparently I was to meet up with my parents at some theater, which in itself is weird since they have never taken me to anything having to do with the arts, actually they’ve never really taken me anywhere except to Lake St. Clair for some fishing. Anyways, before meeting up with them I decide to stop and grab a bite to eat at a nearby semi-fancy restaurant that for some reason did not want me to leave. The power gets knocked out so they offer me compensation. Next thing I know, legendary actor Sir Ian McKellan in waiters getup is serving me pizza. Why are you there with scrumptious looking pizza in a high end restaurant Mr. McKellan? Odd my brain would bring him into the mix as I have never given him much thought lately with no major movies featuring him. At least this dream had some appealing food being served to me. What is it with people serving me food in dreams? Is it some sort of metaphor? I mean it makes sense when you look at the dream I had awhile back about Donald Trump serving me poisoned Cheetos, obviously a toxic person who was about to somehow be elected president. My roommate invading a really good Benedict Cumberbatch dream to serve me poison dusted nuts, he usually is trying to kill me in any dream he decides to pop up into. Benedict never tries giving me food, only offers me friendship, love, conversation, and adventure. Still remember the dream of the ancient underground ruins he and I were exploring, that was fun.
