Friday, payday, good day! I just finished watching the Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. Great movie, a little trippy.
In particular, I really dug the Portuguese adaptations of David Bowie songs.
Bill Murray has made some great movies – among my favorite being Caddyshack, Ghostbusters, and Rushmore.
I picked up a bottle of South African Merlot at the store on the way home. I think it's the first African wine I've had.
Golden Raan – it has a gold on black graphic of Africa on the label. I'm not sure I'd buy it again as it doesn't quite float my boat.
Jacob's Creek from Australia is one of my favorites. I could even see myself checking out their vineyard if it weren't too far off the beaten track.
January is almost over, like sands through the hourglass, these are the days of our lives.
If things go according to plan, I could be on my way in nine months -crazy!
The biggest adventure of my life. Like skydiving, I might need a slight push out the door.
Not only am I writing 20 performance reviews (due in five days), I learned today I also need to self-evaluate myself (due in three days).
Of course, I'll write a stellar review for myself (my boss actually gave me that advice about a year ago), though it'll be a little weird.
There's no way around it, I'll need to put in a few hours at the office this weekend.
