***yawns, covers mouth, yawns again, stares blurry eyed at the screen***
This week has been kicking my butt. Really, I have the bruise to prove it.
I will not be showing that here!
***Warning! Whining about insomnia ahead. Continue at your own risk. Otherwise, skip this next section.***
All week I’ve had bouts of insomnia. I’ll fall asleep, only to wake up in a couple of hours, then be up for the rest of the morning. Or I will just be dozing off, then suddenly jerk awake for some reason, then be awake until 3 or 4am. It’s been so hard to accomplish almost anything this week, but I’ve been giving it my all.
I have managed to make some progress in my current story, at least. A lot of it is in my head, but it still counts. At least I’ve been able to plan out some new parts of the story as I lay there un-sleeping.
The weird thing about this is that my wife is also suffering off and on with the same problem. We haven’t really been doing anything all that different, so I’m not sure what it is that is causing it. We’re not eating anything we usually don’t, we’re not staying up especially late, we’re not doing anything at all that we don’t normally do. The only thing I can think of is because of the summer closing out soon, since she’s a teacher, but we haven’t had this problem in the past. I’ve even been taking Benadryl for my allergies, and that hasn’t knocked me out. It’s just weird.
***End of whining***
I am very excited that I at least have some new ideas for my story, and I’ve started (in my head) weaving them into the story that was planned. I think it’s going to improve it a lot. We’ll see. I’m still making some progress, at least.
The cast list for Star Wars episode 9 came out. I’m happy to see Carrie Fisher listed in there. I figured they would do some kind of tribute to her. I kind of assumed her character would have to suffer an off-screen death, and that we may never see her again, but it sounds like they have some footage that was unused from when they were shooting The Force Awakens and will be using that. I’m interested in seeing how that will play out.
I’m also excited to see that Lando will be making his return. My wife brought up a good point: Will the way Donald Glover played Lando influence Billy Dee Willams’ portrayal in any way? I think it would be interesting if he picked up anything from that. I think Donald Glover did an excellent job of portraying Lando in a way that was consistent and believable as a younger version of Billy Dee Willams’ version, so I don’t know exactly what effect it will have on Lando for episode 9.
I’m going to bed. Goodnight everyone.
Have a good weekend!
