Email Fail

To start my week off with just the right amount ohfuck , I apparently decided to send everyone in my group a message about wanting a new office chair. Because listening to some schmuck whine about his furniture is the way everyone wants to start a Monday.

Look what I found...

While doing some serious clean-up on my work email account (aiming for "zero inbox"), I came across this tidbit. Why am I not keeping this open all the time on my desktop?

Sometimes two is better than one

The wife and I decided to have a mini-marathon last night, when we caught both Joy and The Big Short at our closest moviecineramadome. I'm not going to do full-on reviews for either movie because c'mon... what do I know? But I will say this:

Joy is like a grown-up fairy tale. Some of the tropes are there, but it also tends to flip the narrative on you when you least expect it. Other than a couple of fantasy sequences, his is pretty earthy, earnest stuff. I had a good time, and it's always great to see Jennifer Lawrence act (she's amazing in this), but the ads are all over the bloody place, so it's hard to know what kind of movie you're going in to. There are a few laughs, but it's a serious adult drama.

The Big Short also does a bit of a flip about half-way through, when it turns from a comedy to a horror movie. Not gore, horror, for how thoroughly and utterly fucked so many people were by the sub-prime mortgage collapse of the late aughts. Everyone keeps the movie chugging along in a cheery manner, there are laughs and swears aplenty, but at the end of the day, this is scary stuff. And there's a sequence early in the movie that has been shown on some talk shows (so stick your spoiler complaint) where a character breaks down the reality: most folks don't know, or care, what's going on. That through-line lingered in the back of my mind the whole rest of the movie. One note of warning: there's a LOT of content in this movie, and I had a hard time keeping track of it, and I'm no dummy.

So those are my thoughts about Joy and The Big Short. Do you need to see either of them in a theatre? That I'm not too sure about, but it was a lovely evening out with my better half, so either one (or both) should be a good pick for you and yours!

ARGH!

I took two weeks off, and it was glorious.
I got back to work yesterday, and other than a mess of emails to get through, it was business as usual.

And then, this morning, I wanted to SMASH MY ALARM CLOCK INTO A MILLION PIECES. My friend +Kevin Papineau says that Tuesday is his least favourite day of the week, and I"m beginning to see why.

To top it all off, someone on my bus woke me at my stop, 'cause I was going to sleep right through. Sigh...

Fingers crossed that the rest of the week improves. #rantOver

Not "just a cup"...

This has been my weekday coffee delivery mechanism for as long as I can remember. I think I got it while my wife was my girlfriend (or fiance), so that would mean something close to twenty years!

You're a good mug. Don't ever change (or break )!

So that's the way it's going to be?!?

It's that time of year again, and I'm officially losing already. Don't forget to play the online version too!

I've played the online game a whack-load of times, and have yet to win once. So disappoint.

Maybe this should be a tweet...

TIL that +Daniel Radcliffe has his own G+ page, and he actually posts on it!

That's totally cool!

Are you a grown up?

Then you owe it to yourself to go see Sisters in a theatre with a bunch of other grown-ups. It's no Doctor Zhivago, but it is a good time at the movies! Naughty words, sexy dances and dick painting (in almost every sense of the word). This isn't a case of all the good jokes showing up in the trailer / ad either.

Enjoy it!

Back to work!

After a well deserved (if I do say so myself) break from the office, I'm back in the saddle again. The biggest challenge, funny enough, isn't going to be getting through the emails, or remembering how to do my job... it's going to be limiting myself to only the food that I brought with me from home.

To say that I put on a few pounds over the holidays would be an understatement. When you're at home, and all of the Christmas treats and goodies are all just a few steps away at any time, day or night, a man can be forgiven for indulging himself a wee bit.

That said, those emails aren't going to read themselves... Happy 2016 everyone!

Just One More Day!

I haven't had a proper stretch of time off since last fall, so I'm taking two weeks off for Christmas. Home with the family, and sticking around the area, but we might try to catch a few flicks: Sisters, The Good Dinosaur, Creed... depending on our moods. Any other movie suggestions from anybody? Anybody?

Now the only other thing to do will be to figure out where I can hide when the Family Immersion Experiment becomes just too much to bear...
