As I mentioned in an earlier post about insomnia one of my get to sleep activities is making pointless mental lists.
I have been trying to think of film titles with a name in them – first AND last name or it’s too easy. My poor old grey cells have come to the end so I throw it open to you good people to add to my list please.
Willie Wonker and the Chocolate Factory
Ace Ventura Pet Detective
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
What’s eating Gilbert Grape
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
The Thomas Crown Affair
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
The Ballad of Cable Hogue
One of the best westerns ever - particularly if you know the Nevada desert.
Pirates of the Carribean
Battle of the Little Big Horn
Ooh, I just looked up Johnny English to check that was what the film was actually called (it was) and found another:
It’s a 1961 film that sounds really ‘steamy’ with Troy Donahue, Dorothy McGuire and Connie Stevens. Nope, I don’t think I’ve ever heard of the film, nor of the stars.
Crumbs, best stop now, or I’ll be at it all day. Thank you for a potential anti-insomnia tool!
Saving Private Ryan
Me Myself & Irene
Robin Hood - Men in Tights
Thought of that one while thinking about something completely different. Now a bit worried that this is going to keep me awake at night lol!!
Ohhhh, just one more before lunch: Tony Takitani
Hold on a minute; you was always asleep by 10pm suffered bad fatigue now you can’t sleep. Don’t know whether to congratulate you or commiserate.
the mystery of Edwin Drood
JFK (is that allowed?)
The picture of Dorian Gray
Mmm, know the feeling. I just need to pop to the co-op to get summat for lunch, but I seem to be sat here reading posts and pondering film titles!
I will get off my backside in a minute. I will get off my backside in a minute. I will get off my backside in a minute.
Fatigue and sleep aren’t opposites, and one doesn’t solve the other (imo)! On the other hand, sleep can be a broad cure for tiredness. LDN helps hugely with fatigue.
But sometimes, for no apparent reason, I lie awake all night. This happened a couple of nights ago. I just wasn’t tired and my mind was racing all over the place. And I didn’t feel tired the next day. Just didn’t need sleep. Nope, can’t explain it either.
But I believe sleep is good for the mind and body, so try to get plenty of it (and feel better when I have lots of it).
So many that I knew but didn’t bring to mind.
No points you folks who mentioned ones with only first names - that list could run on and on forever.
Here’s a new one to get you thinking
Film Titles with a vehicle in the title Eg Appolo 13 or Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
I’m not going to give you my list so that you have free reign.
George - I wish the time I spend wide awake at night could be translated to fatigue free hours during the day. You’d think that I would sleep well ater lots of activity but it doesn’t seem to work that way. I had physio on Friday and was so tired I could barely hold my head up but still didn’t get off to sleep rightaway.
