Another fairly recent movie review

So a friend took me to see I am Legend yesterday. Having seen Omega Man in all of its Chuck Heston glory, I had some idea of what to expect. I was hopeful it would be a good film but I wasn't really expecting any great shakes.

I was wrong, it was much more affecting than I would have thought, much less of a horror movie than it first seemed to me. I really enjoyed it and it poses some interesting questions that invite discussion after the movie.

I would love to get into all of my theories, but I don't want to spoil the movie for any one that may see it. Maybe in a few weeks I'll start another thread to talk about it.

Oh good, another quiz

I'm not one for all the silly quizzes &c out there. That's one reason I'm not on the Facebook or the MySpace and so on. However this one appeals to my nerd and I liked the result I got so what the hell? Here it is:

The good news just keeps piling up

Yep, that's sarcasm.

As of 06:00 Friday, I no longer have a job. After sticking with a job I hated for 9 months, with the understanding that my agency would look out for me as I was doing them a favor by putting up with all the bullshit there, they still haven't found me anything, and my contract didn't get renewed.

So we're all smiles here.

That time of year

It looks like it's that time of year where this little blog turns into my endless bitching about the incompetence of the various state and municipal agencies responsible for dealing with snow on the roads.

We are not off to a good start; all week I've been hearing on the weather, "chance of snow showers this weekend." Did the turnpike commission see the same information and say, "well, it's only a chance, why worry?" They must have, because there was no pre-snow preparation, and there where no salt truck out while it was snowing.

It boggles the mind after what happened here last February, no one thought "hey, this year lets look like we know what were doing, instead of the usual messes we have."

My taxes and tolls hard at work.

c1150 - why, no, the new meds haven't kicked in yet. Why do you ask?

2007-11-12

Nope

"No news" does not equal "good news." I just got a call that they are going to pass on me for that job. Disappointed, [insert TMBG line here]. Not sure what I'm going to do now.

No news = good news?

So my hope to hear something by the end of this past week was not fulfilled. But, I am sticking to cliches and assuming no news is good news. We'll see how long that lasts. Other than that, there is not a whole lot going on here. I'm looking forward to the long weekend over Thanksgiving, though I don't have any plans. I just like the idea of 4 days of not thinking about or have to go to work.

So Far So Good

So I had my phone interview, I think it went very well. Now I'm waiting to see if they call me back for a face to face interview, but I think I'm on the short list for that. I should hear about it next week.

Of course now I'm too wound up to get some sleep before I go to work. Oh well, c'est la vie.

The good news/bad news

So the good news:

I have a phone interview Thursday for a new position. I'm excited, it's the sort of thing I like to do, it's closer to home, and there's a pay bump.

The bad news:

The phone interview is at 15:00. I work nights, so this is very much like 03:00 to me. I don't know how lucid I will be. And then after the interview I have to get more sleep so I can go to work.

It's not exactly a catch-22, but it's something. Is it ironic? Where's Alanis Morrisette when you need her? Unreliable Canadienes. So is like "10,000 spoon when all you need is a knife?" or is it like "a free ride when you're already late?" Maybe it's "some good advice you just can't take"

Help me out here, please find a name for my dilemma, and get Alanis out of my head.

Thanks,

Less happening

I was grocery shopping earlier and I thought to my self, "I should buy my ungrateful kitties a brush, as I cannot find the old one and the grooming glove thing has holes in it." So I did.

See, much less happening.

No news about jobs.

Not much of anything going on really.

Except yesterday was Jean-Luc Petards birthday, Happy Birthday!

So there's that.

Happenings

So so far this week is looking up. Saturday I won 9$ in the lottery, so I think I'm only down like 50$.

I have yet another line on yet another job, I hope to have an interview some time this week. I'm hopeful about this one, it matches my skill set, it's much closer to home, it's day shift, and it's a bump in pay. Adding the bump and the closer to home, I'll actually be pretty happy, if I get it.

I was on call this weekend, and it was actually pretty quiet. Still annoying and pointless, but at least I wasn't hassled too much.

I think that's it for now, time to laundry. Yeah!

Oddly sexist York College radio ad

York college of Pennsylvania is running an oddly sexist ad on the radio these days. Transcript and audio file here. I mean it's not horribly sexist, but the bit in the last paragraph about being "addicted to applied research like a woman to chocolate" is just bizarre. I mean what's next for YCP, women driver jokes? Oooh, those women sure do love to shop don't they? It's like the guy writing the ad copy is a failed stand up comic from 1982.

I honestly want to know who approved this ad. Now, I'm not saying all women are or should be offended by this. But as a chocolate addict, with both an X and Y chromosome, I just think they could have come up with a better simile. I don't know what exactly, everything else I can come up with is more offensive, but there's a reason I'm not in PR.

Some actual random thoughts

  1. I may be in line for a new position. One more in line with what I like/am good at. This pleases me.
  2. Lawyers are fun. Mine is keeping me apprised of things via mail. I feel so olde timey. I keep picturing him in a dimly lit room wearing sleeve garters and a green visor. However, I think he's younger than me.
  3. I've said it before, commuting 2 hours a day is no fun. It truly seems like people are intentionally getting in my way. And why can't people keep a constant speed? Why must people alternate between 15 under and 20 over the posted limit? Particularly in PA where one can fight and win against any ticket where one is up to 10 over the limit? Seriously, I want to know.
  4. My health plan changed, I went from paying a reasonable amount for an OK plan to paying nothing for a lousy plan. It may be time to move to Canada.
  5. Google Reader is a nice RSS aggregator, if you're into that sort of thing. One stop for checking stuff you want to keep track of.
  6. The days are getting short. Back around the solstice it was still fairly light when I went to work, and the sun was up as I left work. Now, it's dark when I leave home and dawn is just breaking when I get back. Where's Deacon Frost when you need him? Or at least Lucien De LaCroix?
  7. So Apple did release a phone-less iPhone. My friend nano was right. And then he bought one. It's very nice, I need one.

I think that's if for now. I numbered them to make commenting easier, if anyone does.

To mope or not to mope

I was going to post a really mopey entry tonight. That's what I do, I mope. But Jean Luc Petard posted a little good news, and it actually made me a little happy. So now I want to post something cheerful, and I'm drawing a blank.

Well the Pats are off to a glorious start this season, 3-0-0 and out scoring their opponents 114 to 35. Sure there's the whole video taping scandal, but honestly I think they've shown that it doesn't matter if they tape or not.

For those waiting anxiously to find out what is happening in the saga of the back of my knees, itchiness won, I stopped drinking the OJ and bought the hydrocortisone cream. So hopefully this will all go away soon. Look for a movie based on these events coming to a theatre near you in summer 2010!

Drunk blog redux

So why do we make promises to our ex-wives we don't want to keep? I totally should have been hitting on the cute girl whose husband is worse at marriage than I am, but I promised my ex that I wouldn't tell on his [cute girl's husband] latest indiscretion, which she has plenty any way, it's not like one more will really tip the balance... she doesn't get it it.

So itchy

Hearken back to the days of yore, a young and slightly less angry c1150 had a bit more to be angry about at age 4. He found he had allergies to citric acid and cow's milk, causing eczema. So after a few years of drinking apple juice all the time, and one failed attempt to drink raw goat's milk (don't try it, it's worth your life), it seemed to go away.

Fast forward scene missing years and our angrier c1150 decides to be a bit healthier in his morning routine and drink orange juice. "Ooh, it's yummy," says our hero, "Why didn't I start this before?" Apparently because drinking one glass of orange juice a day for 4 days is enough to trigger another bout of eczema. So I'm itchy and not too happy about this whole thing, the backs of my knees and the insides of my elbows are all rashy and so on. And I still have half a jug of OJ to get through... which will win out? Thriftiness or Itchiness, it'll be quite a battle.

Not a blog

Or maybe nada blog. Not much posting been going on here... is it too much anger? It's so difficult to say. Perhaps I need to let my guard down and post more personal things. As an experiment, let's see how that goes:

So it ought not be a shock to most of my readers that my wife of 9 years left me back in February. If it is a shock, I'm sorry I didn't tell you personally, but I've only recently come to terms with it and made peace with my feelings on the subject. We're trying to stay friends, and it's mostly working.

One of the parts of this whole situation that I dislike intensely is that fact that I will at some point have to start dating again, if I don't want to end up the lonely guy with all the cats. Which is not entirely accurate, the again part. I feel like I never really dated, sure I had girl friends, but it was a long long time ago and I was never that smooth to begin with. So I am more than a little terrified of the prospect of meeting new people, being charming, and asking her out. Friday I did sort of take the first step by chatting up two attractive young women, and apparently did not creep them out too much. But I was still awkward, and I'm sure it was entertaining for them.

So there it is, if any one has any advice, feel free to leave it in the comments.

So my co-worker here at the job of shame will most likely get a job offer within the week. I'm very happy for him, but a little fearful of what will happen when he leaves as the MO here is to inconvenience your truly as much as is humanly possible when there's a change. And even more fun, I heard 4th hand that my manager's manager doesn't like my attitude. I might have a better attitude if this place wasn't such a hell hole, and they'd cut down of the 'fore mentioned annoying me.

G jobs suck

If I get pulled into another damned G job I think I'll snap. A G job is a cute name I heard for a project for an owner or senior manager type in the company you work for that isn't really related to the business at hand. For instance, fixing your bosses home computer on company time, or your boss has you circumvent all the usual procedures to do a project for a company that is owned by a friend of his. Grrr.

How old is old?

A couple weeks back I was at the bar previously mentioned, the one with the older crowd, talking to the bartender who just had a birthday. Making idle chit-chat I asked how old she was, and to my unreasonable surprise I found I was 12 years older than her. As in, when I was a senior in high school she was in first grade, 12 years older. When did I become older than bartenders? I mean specifically, there should be some point on a graph some where that marks "here's where you're old" and being older than people who serve you drinks in public is it.

I think it also has a complimentary point when you realize your younger relatives, the ones you always remember as little kids, have families of their own and mortgages and so on.

Back home from home

I just got back from attending my uncle Dave's funeral. It was a nice service, but the best part was my uncle Greg's eulogy/remembrance. Very moving and touching, he captured so much of what is great about Dave.

It was also nice to see so much family, but not under those circumstances.

I also got to spend time with my Dad and his wife Paula after not being able to see him that last few times he was down this way.

I'm pretty wiped from the 7 1/2 hour drive, so I'll wrap this up.

Bad news and good news

The bad news first:
One of my uncles is very sick, and he's going to die soon. I haven't seen him in years, and now I won't be able to catch up with him. That's one thing I don't like about living so far from my family, it's not easy for me to go and visit. I'll miss you even more, Dave.

Now the good news:
Well if it can be considered such, maybe it's just news. I have another line on another job. No details at all except it's very close to where I live, and it's going to be a start-up big shop that is part of an established company. So again I'm hopeful, but ever the realist.

Sad news

I don't know how I missed this last week:

Don Herbert, TV's Mr. Wizard died June 12th. As a kid I would always watch Mr. Wizard's World on Nickelodeon to see him lay the knowledge down on those lucky Canadian kids that got to hang out with him.

Of course, if I were one of those Canadian kids, I probably would have dragged dear old Don over to the darkside as we cackled gleefully turning everyday household items into high explosives, knock-out gas and other WMDs. I guess it's probably for the best that we never met.

A Realization

And, perhaps, not a good one.

So yesterday was Friday, basically my one night of the week to relax a little and have a drink or two. I was at one of my neighborhood watering holes when I realized, I've stopped going to the young peoples' college type bars and am now going to the "older people trying to drink like they're in college" type bars. What has become of c1150? Is age catching up with me? Have I become an "Older American"? Granted, I'm greying at the temples [but I'm hoping to cultivate the Nick Fury look, I may start wearing an eye-patch] and have been out of college longer than I care to think about, but really am I that old? Must be time for my nap.

Movie Review Some One Might Care About

So I just saw Spider-Man 3, it was OK. I'm still digesting what I saw but initial impressions are that it drags a lot in the middle. The effects were decent again, the story was faithful to the source in some respects and wildly different in others. I don't want to go into too much detail and spoil the movie for any one who hasn't seen it.

I guess I just didn't feel the same excitement the I felt for the other two in the series. Some how it just didn't grab me the same way, maybe because I knew the original stories too well.

Apropos of nothing, I'd also like to say I saw trailers for some truly awful looking movies. I mean honestly does the world need another Jackie Chan/Chris Tucker buddy cop movie? That's not rhetorical, the answer is a resounding NO! But the new Bourne movie looks pretty cool.

Turkish coffee

Jean Luc Petard's post about a Mediterranean restaurant got me to thinking about Turkish coffee and how I haven't had that particular delight in a long, long time. Unfortunately, I do not think Turkish coffee is high on the list of eats that the Pennsylvania Dutch are adept at making. They'd probably find some way of slipping pickled beet eggs or scrapple or some abomination in there.

Then, unfortunately, I naturally start down the path of all the other things that used to be in my life and now, are not. I think I'll go lie down for a while.

Geek time

OK, I'm going to nerd-out here for a little bit:

Heroes is the most amazing thing to happen to TV. Ever.

Now I'm an uber-geek, I read comics, I love science fiction in any form, I was a greasy haired, tape on glasses, calculator carrying, AV working, chocolate milk drinking mega-dork in high school. So Heroes would have been the end all be all of my existence back then. Now, pretty much the same, without the grease, tape and calculator; I still enjoy the occasional chocolate milk.

It amazes me that there is finally a show on the air that really captures, in most ways, that which is best in comics. The way shots are composed, the occasionally clunky dialog, the story arcs, all evoke the same reaction in me as Powers, for instance. And, to me, it's even more amazing when I read that Tim Kring, the producer, was never a big fan of comics. Sometimes it takes an outsider to find the solution.

  • Speaking of comments, I got off my high horse and turned off the comment moderation. I don't know why I thought I was going to be a target for comment spam. Just paranoid I guess.

Man, I'm beat.

I think I only got an hour of sleep today. Oh, I don't recall if I mentioned, I'm working 3rd shift now. 22:00 to 07:00 Sunday through Friday morning. So I've been here about an hour, it's been quiet so far [knock wood]. But, laws yes, I am tired. I really hope I get that other job, and soon. I hate living like a movie vampire, especially as I seem to be missing all of the movie vampire sexiness. Still have the pale skin though, and I think Wesley Snipes is trying to kill me. Now if I could just get the techno soundtrack to follow me around, I think it would keep me awake.

More Movie Reviews No One Cares About

Another in a short list of movie reviews that come too late:

The 300: I liked it. Why? you might be asking yourself [but probably not]. It was quite entertaining in a "oh jeez! what are they going to do next" kind of way. There is also great irony in that the story of the brave and laconic Spartans is told by a long-winded guy, who left the battle. Granted it wasn't, perhaps, his choice, but it still jars a bit.

Also, I don't think the movie was as successful as Sin City in the translation from the page to film, but that may not be the director's intent.

But, on the whole, I enjoyed this movie to no end.

I am officially done at my temp job as of 1/2 hour ago. Nice long weekend and then start the new gig. Fun, Fun, Fun.

A little disappointed

My new job wants me to start on the second shift right away. I had thought they were going to have me on day shift for a while first. Oh well.

Must stop reading my horoscope

Today mine says I'll have a 5 star day. So far, I haven't been able to get a hold of the HR person at my new job to get some questions answered. At my temp job, corporate decided that they needed to migrate my email account to a new server, and apparently lost my account. Bah, 5 star day, indeed.

Snow Snow Snow

Well, the wonderful state and municipal governments of PA have once again proven they don't believe in snow. They can't other wise my street would be plowed properly and the business across the street would be able to dump the snow from their parking lot on my corner of the street.

A little less angry, now.

OK, so it's been over 3 months since I posted. What can I say, didn't feel like it. But today is a little better, I start a new job at the end of February. Very excited to be back in tech, and all. Well not much else to say now, maybe later.
