Of Spooks and Sleep

Happy Halloween, I guess. I've never been one to celebrate this holiday to the extreme. I do welcome the days off work but this year, I had only one day off. I envy those who are on Philippine holidays - they only had to work 2 days this week! Unfortunately for me and Jer, the French and the Koreans do not take November 2 off. Well, I got almost 20 hours of sleep out of the single day off I had so I suppose that is some consolation.

I can't believe I slept through a Spurs game - the first of the season, too! I was trying to stay awake in the middle of the afternoon but after a night with lots of wine (company Halloween party) and several hours more with Jer and friends and Earl at Gweilos, my body just needed sleep - and lots of it.

I don't feel like going to work today, though. Since I didn't get to work yesterday (sleep), I kinda feel like I have lost my momentum. I did write a lot in advance for my blogs today so that's fine. I am sure when I get to the office later, I'll have my work mood back.

Speaking of mood, last night we watched Monster. It's this movie based on the true story of a real life serial killer - a whore who ran into a lot of bad luck and made a lot of bad choices. She ended up being executed. It was one of the most depressing movies I have ever seen. I went to sleep feeling drained and ranting at life in general.

It made me think - do we have real choices in our lives? Why couldn't have God made it to where we had better choices or we had enough sense to make the right ones?
