Up at Night

I found a post in my drafts with this same title and so I thought I’d steal it from myself. If good writers borrow but great writers steal then what happens when a writer steals from themselves? Do I get to enter Inception? Will Ellen Page be there? Not going to lie, that film went way over my head a number of times. Also, I’m on my phone, so I apologize for peculiar spelling mistakes. My phone can’t spell. Look at this: upapotatoes. That’s supposed to be upstairs. It’s like my phone is trying to be cockney and failing terribly. Gotta go up the apple and upapotatoes!

Anyway, I’m pretty sure when I first wrote the title Up at Night I was actually awake late at night, right now I’m preparing myself for it.

Some days just come about where too much information tries to get in my head on top of too much upset. I’m not going to pretend I stay up pondering it all and the meaning of life, I spend my time trying to distract myself until I’m too tired and fall asleep. I used to watch horror films for this purpose. The scarier the better. Not because I’m super rough and tough but I felt like if something else was happening to make me feel dread then eventually I’d just knock out asleep focusing on that instead. I mean, really that’s hindsight, and something I’ve just made up to try and explain it. I don’t think I can.

There are so many things we can’t explain.

No idea where I was going with that thought but it looks like I was about to try and get deep and meaningful. Now, however, I’m up at night.

Eeehhh, eeehhh, looka that! Things always work out right when you make them.

I really want a good horror film to watch. I’m having a sleepover with my ferret (Seb) so it can’t be too scary and we both hate gore. She wants zombies but I think they’re so overrated but I love her a lot so may need to compromise. You know, I was going to say I’m writing this because I’m lonely, but I don’t think I am. I like talking to myself. Or maybe this song sums it up.

Not in love with that tosser over the road though. He can do one.

That’s actually one of my all time favourite ever ever cherry on top songs.

Right me and Seb are deciding to watch The Woman in Black because both the film and Daniel Radcliffe (or Danele rut as my phone likes to call him) are brilliant. She’s been a big fan of him for some years so she decided we’d sack off the zombies.

Horror film fans, ladies and fellas? Any favourites?

Pointless blog post ends now.

Get to your bunkers!

      1. Some rooms are just, click once and you’re done. Some have something to figure out. Some are there just to scare the crap out of you! lol

  1. My favorite is The Exorcist. I attended the world premiere in 1973. I know it’s pretty passe, but so am I. Your writing is uplifting, humorous, and I bet you could be deep and meaningful if you wanted. And the music was something, too.

      1. I had read the book beforehand, and was surprised they were going to make a movie out of it. Curiosity got me down there, along with some friends. Back in that day, theatres were huge, and only showed one film. One of my friends was a big bad dude, and I had never known him to be scared of anything. 45 minutes into the movie, he was sitting in the lobby with a white face. I heard there were some people sick as well. I watched it all the way through, but it bothered me for quite a while after….you gotta remember this was 1973, and nothing like this had ever been seen on the screen.

      2. This is a weird thing to say, but, that’s so cool! I don’t think we really have reactions to films anymore, not quite so strongly as that anyway. I really enjoyed reading this memory of yours! 😄💖

    1. Loved the idea behind Blair Witch, and The Village too! Stranger Things is something else and I can’t wait until its back!! We must chatter about it when the time comes!! 😄


  2. I’ve never seen Inception. Maybe I should make a point of watching it tonight? It has always felt like the kind of movie where you need zero distractions to have half a chance of understanding any of it. I tried to watch “Cloud Atlas” a while ago – twice – got interrupted both times – and gave up.

    1. I thought I replied to this! Did you manage to get through inception? I’ve never seen cloud atlas! I bought the book because I hear its brilliant and uh… Yet to read it too! Must get round to it!


  3. You might say your post was pointless but I laughed out loud and I’m in a coffee shop. Now people think I’m nuts haha and it’s your fault. Or they want to read over my shoulder but I shield my phone. Which also can’t spell and is a poor mind reader.
    In closing, you entertain me in many ways. I even smile when I get a notification that you like one of my poems! It’s like Arbie glitter spreading international joy 😘 Be well Arbus!
