how to have nightmares
my son and i recently watched a Pokemon movie, The Rise of Darkrai. he is now incessantly talking about Pokemon, and even pretending to be a Pokemon trainer (releasing water Pokemons during bath time!). luckily i have had some background on these critters, but i haven't updated my knowledge about them since high school. well, i have to say Pokemon has been one of the longest running anime and game to date.
well the movie was fairly good, a bit cheesy since they're geared towards grade schoolers. but i was very much interested in Darkrai. he reminds me of Silas in The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman, with the billowy visage and all. when i Googled Darkrai, i got more info than i can chew, so i gave up. what i know is he gives nightmares to Pokemons, and let's leave it at that.
so, my son is currently awaiting for his dad to return his DS lite so he can get a turn in playing Pokemon. as for me, i don't know if i have to brush up on my Pokemon knowledge or just leave it to my boyfriend to answer all of our son's questions about them. after all, he introduced Pokemon to him. haha!
