I remember faithfully watching the Ghostbusters cartoons when I was little but I had never seen the movie. I’m actually surprised that I was allowed to watch it at all given my mother’s belief that anything ghost related was also devil related. When Harold Ramis died recently it brought Ghostbusters into the news for a few days and I kept thinking to myself that I should finally watch it.
Today was the perfect day for doing something that involved no effort. I slept terribly last night, hit snooze for an hour this morning and had to really push myself to even get out of bed. It was one of those days where I just wanted to curl up in my bed until everything went away. I’ve tried the curl up in bed coping mechanism before and believe it or not it isn’t particularly helpful. I forced myself through the day and miraculously survived. Sometimes days are like that but we keep on surviving. I was tired and not feeling particularly ambitious so a laying on the couch activity suited me just fine.
I won’t lie, I didn’t see the end of Ghostbusters because I fell asleep. I needed that sleep and based on the part of the movie I did see I feel no compulsion to go back and watch what I missed. I’m sure in it’s day it was a perfectly good movie and for this day it was a perfectly good movie to fall asleep to.
