Asta 2

Quick Update

It dawned on me last night that, once again, I have not posted here for many days. I almost posted last Friday but who really wants to read mw whine about 11 hour days at work? My friend and I had one of our post work bitch sessions on why the hell we stay here. Apparently all the aggravation my boss causes us is slightly outweighed by mucho vacation time, full benefits, and arriving and leaving as we please. Plus, I genuinely like the majority of people working here and those I don't I can call on their crap.

I got my taxes done this weekend. Woo and Hoo! I swear every year I'll do them earlier, but inevitably wait until about two weeks before they are due. And this is the first year I'm getting less back then I expected. My employer giveth more and the government giveth less back. :/

The money I am getting back looks to be going towards car repairs. My check engine light went on for the second time in three months. Of course it can't be that they screwed up fixing something the last time, no, it's an entirely new problem.

I haven't rewatched this past weeks 'Doctor Who' yet. After my exhausting eleven hour day I fell asleep on the couch half way through the ep. Since it's a two-parter I think I'll just save my thoughts for this coming Friday.

I'm slowly getting my mother on board the Bamber bandwagon. When I was talking to her yesterday afternoon she pointed out, as I predicted shw would, that 'The Murder of Roger Ackroyd' was airing at 6 (I already know this, of course ;). And she actually watched it again herself. Interestingly, the Poirot film that aired right before it featured Christopher Eccelston. Apparently, when it comes to Sci-Fi Friday, if you are Canadian you must have appeared on 'Stargate'. If you are Birtish, you must appear as a murder suspect in a Poirot film.

Oh, and I saw Ice Age: The Meltdown Saturday. Not as good as the first film, but I found it enjoyable with a couple of laugh out loud moments. And we saw a trailer for some animated film featuring the voices of Kate Winslet, Hugh Jackman, and Robin Williams. The trailer features Robin, as a penguin, singing 'My Way' in Spanish. Even if Hugh wasn't involved that would get me in the theater come November.

OK, back to work. Blech.
