Sleeping Potion

I don't really take medicine that often. Despite that, I feel like I have a relatively high tolerance for drugs. When I had jaw surgery three years ago, I was taking something for it every few hours and it didn't seem to hardly touch the pain. I occasionally take sleeping pills (like once or twice a month). When I do, I usually take two Unisoms because one really doesn't do much for me. If I decide to go the natural route, I will take three melatonin before I feel anything. The other night I decided that I should combine those. One Unisom + two melatonin = Brad hardly able to stand up in a half an hour. And it was awesome! I have since realized that that is what Christin and Adam feel like every night. I am still a little in awe of that feeling. Really the only times I can remember it occurring naturally to me is after staying up all night.

With that I just want to say I really wish I felt it more often. I have laid in bed for almost an hour every night this week before falling asleep and I am getting sick of it.

The Last Rainforest

Avatar has become one of, if not THE, highest grossing movies of all time. I asked a friend about it a few days ago and he told me it was really just a souped up Fern Gully. I saw it tonight, and yes it is incredible and the IMAX 3D experience is something well worth the $10 ticket, but ... he was exactly right. In fact if you begin to type "Avatar F" into google, Fern Gully is the first to come up suggested. If you actually search for it, you find dozens of these remade trailers of one of the first tree-hugging movies ever made. It would be funnier if you had seen the movie and understand how RIDICULOUSLY similar the story lines are, but you still get the idea.
