Hi all. Well, hi to anyone who still happens to read this blog, which probably isn't anyone. I've once again been terribly remiss in updating. Sorry about that. But I have some time today, so here we go.
I had my last final for Summer session last night. I am confident that I passed the class, but do not feel I did terribly well. Sadly, I went into the final with one goal . . . score a 60 or better so I don't have to repeat the class. No concern over how it would affect the GPA or anything . . . just pass. I don't like taking that attitude, but I unfortunately did in this instance. The good news is that I now have about three weeks off from school before the next session starts. I only hope I actually put the time to good use.
I took yesterday off from work to do some last minute cramming, and today off so I could have a little relaxing fun extended weekend. The original plan was to go fishing, since it's been ages
since last I wet a line. However, I somehow twisted my knee this morning, and so was not in the mood to hike around my usual lake. Dammit. Instead, I figured I'd use the opportunity to catch a showing of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
without the crowds. Good flick. Lots of fun, some action, drama and sorrow, all with a solid plot and the usual spot-on acting.
I damn near squealed when a trailer for Where the Wild Things Are
came on. Yes, a grown man just said he nearly squealed. In public. At an ad for a children's movie. Deal with it. Thing is, that was one of my all-time favorite books as a child, and I was much delighted when I heard last year that a movie was being made based on it. I had nearly forgotten about it until today when the trailer aired. My calendar is officially marked.
Additionally, a new trailer for G.I. Joe
popped its ugly head up. It did not make me want to see the movie any more. Actually, it may have even made me want to see it less, if that is at all possible. The film looks absolutely horrid. That being said, I shall probably end up seeing the damn thing anyway. Why? I'll tell you why. First, it has Dr. Who
in it. And second, the Baroness (Sienna Miller
) and Scarlett (Rachel Nichols
) are absolutely gorgeous. And let's face it--strap a couple beautiful women in tight leather outfits and I'll probably go see the movie even if I know it's going to suck big hairy cheese balls, because I'm that pathetic.
Work is the usual bullshit. Stupid a-hole people getting their way, while the good, hard-working folks get dumped on. Lord, I hope I find something else soon.
Anywho, nothing much else to say. I'll try to update a little bit more during the break, though don't hold your breath since we all know my good intentions don't always come through.
