It’s a pretty amazingly well done film. I only vaguely remember the story from reading the books ages ago, but edpark says they were quite faithful to it. Anyways, it’s a really well done film, and the effects work was great. All the creatures, and especially Aslan looked amazingly real.
Yesterday I had lunch at Thai Garden with scrungew00t and edpark. Ah, it’s always very satisfying having a couple of bowls of Tom Yum Poa Tak after an absence of a few months. This was one of those times where I didn’t get to order. The waiter listed off my favorite dishes and I just had to nod my head and say “OK!”
The bad news is that I seem to have picked up a cold from someone on the plane. I’m always very prone to coming down with a cold right after a plane ride. The cold dry air on board really does a number on my nose. I dug around my medicine stash here and was finding one medicine after another with dextromethorphan in it. I get a really bad reaction with that in combination with the Wellbutrin SR I take twice daily.
I think I mentioned this on my blog before, but I get really loopy, sometimes to the point of hallucinating and then it knocks me out to sleep for hours. Both medications are metabolized via CYP2D6, so in combination they have interesting effects. The patient information doesn’t say anything about this, though there’s some info on the web about these kinds of interactions.
Anyways, I finally found one box of pseudoephedrine hcl in the stash and have been taking that as a decongestant.
