I must admit, I’m thus far enjoying the act of setting up my new computer.
Well, my computer that’s new to me. My nephew’s old computer…seems he upgraded huge, which then turned into a huge upgrade for me, as well. Now I am in the process of getting everything set up, and every time another thing goes well, I giddy grin to myself. With any luck, I’ll be more on top of my game – of all my games – than ever…and very, very soon. My brain is filling up with possibilities.
Well, not FILLING,but you know – excited.
In other news, I had a great time watching Ghostbusters. Like, really great. It gave me many different feels, all good. I’m thinking the haters are perhaps just anti-fun. Or anti-amazing-women, because DAMN…every single one of those wonderful ladies kicked ass, as far as I’m concerned. I laughed out loud more times than I can count, forgot more amazing lines than I can remember, and my eyes misted up several times. Laugh, cry, cheer…recipe for success, says I.
I even think it works better as a reboot than it would have as a continuation, particularly for the fact that I prefer the “ghost girls” struggling to be taken seriously while taking care of one another than something that would have started off in a world where people believe in ghosts because they’d already seen it all before. Back when men did it. It felt more genuine to have the women fighting to just not be brushed aside and treated as fraudulent, rather than fighting each other. It seemed more real to me, and like a sweet starting point.
Plus, women battling to be taken seriously in a man’s world? I know some people who can definitely relate to such a simple theme, which only serves to make the rest of it all the more successful, to my mind.
Besides, this is the first time in my life – as far as I can recall – that a movie ever made me desperately want to cosplay one of its characters.
I’d do up Kristen Wiig’s Erin Gilbert like a BOSS.
