It's news, and it's good.

So my replacement has been hired. He's also coming up to speed very quickly, which is great for me. It should just be a week or two before I'm in the back office working a normal schedule. Good times. I'm really looking forward to it. Soon I will be hired on permanently, which will also be very nice.

Now to sort out the rest of my life.



Why, this isn't a review of an old movie at all

So yesterday I went and saw Iron Man. If you like comic book movies, go see this, it's as good or better that anything that has come out since the comic book movie renaissance started with the first Spider-Man movie.

If you don't like comic book movies, go see this film. It has nice easter eggs for comic nerds like me, but it doesn't beat you over the head with "This is a Comic Book Movie, see the dots from the offset printing?"
The cast is incredible, Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Jeff Bridges, and Terrence Howard. 

If you know the comic version, I think you'll like the way they updated the story. I know I liked it better than the original in many ways.

The effects were great and the transitions from practical to CGI and back were the best I've seen yet.

Anyhow, not much of a review really, just me telling you to see the movie.
