Holy shit, I’m not looking forward to work this week. Between Howard’s knee and part of my staff being gone on business, I’m the lone wolf along with my trusty bookkeeper all week. Hello, 12 hour workdays!
While in town last week, Howard and I were able to watch a couple of movies at the theatre (a novel idea when you live in the bush). “Into the Wild” was way better than we thought it would be and it followed the book except for a few things they added to the movie to add the element of romance, I suppose. You know? I just want to say that I don’t know why people get all worked up over Christopher McCandless. I mean, yeah, he gave up his material possessions and walked into the wilderness and ultimately succumbed to the elements due to proper planning. I think all in all, he was a good kid, searching for something more in his life. Every person does it in their own way. Stop being so damn offended that he did it in such an extreme way. I’ll bet if he lived, he’d be hailed as a hero. I’ll say this. He was brave to do what he did and ultimately, he did make peace with himself and stated that just before his death. My hats off to him.
We also saw “Dan in Real Life”. Steve Carell is my favorite actor right now mainly because he lends a “realness” to his characters be it a half-witted co-anchor, a 40-year old Virgin, or a widower struggling to raise his three daughters without losing his mind while spewing advice on how to live a life he wishes he had. Howard enjoyed it but says it was definitely a “chick flick” but he and I both swooned over the beautiful Juliette Binoche. My God, I want her skin, and her hair for that matter. She’s just breathtaking. I think if I had a girl crush, she’d be it. I cried at the end of both movies. Are you surprised?
Howard and I are embarking on yet another chapter in our lives. Another chapter that, frustratingly enough for you, I can’t reveal the details of, just yet. But soon guys. I promise.
Oh, and the insomnia is back with a vengeance and I think it’s due to said upcoming chapter. Are you all nice and curious yet?
