I got to the hotel last night around 22h00. I screwed around on the computer for a couple of hours...then decided my best course of action would be to go for a run. Here's where I really don't recognize myself. I used to (or still am?) super scared of the dark. Ok, I'm less significantly less scared now, I used to sleep with a nightlight and if it was dark outside (morning or night) I was alone, I would run to my car and most of the time be looking in my rear view mirror or backseat for monsters. I only wish I was joking.
So as I left my room last night, in the middle of the night, to go to the super quiet hotel gym (camera monitored), I had a flashback of Poltergyst. A movie that I watched by myself during the day when I was a teenager. I'm not sure which # the film was (1, 2, 3, or 30) but it took place in a hotel. I told myself to quit thinking about it, which sort of worked, but I still wasn't able to listen to my iPod with my earphones. I unplugged them, kept the gym door open (so that someone would hear if I was attacked by ghosts and/or monsters), and checked the mirror a few hundred times. Like seriously four years ago there is absolutely no way IN THE WORLD that I would ever, ever, ever do this. Like, you couldn't pay me to do this.
I thought if I half watched a Chinese game show, the mood would stay light and monster-free.
I kept thinking that if this was a North American take on a Chinese game show....you'd lose a finger (or more) for each wrong answer.
