– Jet lag isn’t nearly as bad coming back from Europe. We left Paris around 1 in the afteroon and arrived in Chicago (via Detroit) around 10 due to a rain delay. Got home around 12:30 and was exhausted, but after a good 8 or so hours of sleep, I feel like I’m back on my normal schedule.
– Didn’t play many games on the plane… and watched movies instead. The Air France flights had quite the library of films to watch so I took advantage of that.
On the way there, I watched ‘The Wrestler.’ I’ll say this about Darren Aronofsky, you’re never going to get an uplifting story out of that man… Wow, quite the film though. Well worth watching.
On the way back, I watched Ghost Town with Ricky Gervais (not bad, decent comedy) and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (Quite an odd performance from Johnny Depp.)
The only game that I really played on the trip was Rhythm Heaven for the Nintendo DS. I don’t know why I keep trying out all of these bizzare rhythm games, but it has it’s moments. I am glad to have the game as a rental though. While some of the songs are quite catchy, there just doesn’t seem to be any way that I could play the game for extended periods of time.
– Today is kind of an amazing sports day to come back to. NFL Draft, NHL playoff hockey, Brewers baseball, Nascar race… damn… just too much to watch.
– More about Paris later today or tomorrow.
