Had a pretty good day at work, though it was much longer than expected. I had to fill in for someone at the last minute, so instead of working from 12-2, I worked from 12-4. Still, that's extra money at the end of the pay cycle, about $15 worth of extra money.
Two things that I have to say. First, of all, I saw some Bel Ami last night. And I have to say that I stick by my guns on that one. It's like the saying "hate the game, don't hate the player." I can't dislike Rob for portraying Duroy in that movie, since he did do a pretty good job at it. But I still heartily dislike the character, and I'm pretty sure that Rob did/does, too. I like the job that Rob did, but Duroy is a serious douchebag, and I can't see him and Rob being in the same room without Rob wanting to throwdown on him. And, naturally, I say more power to Rob if that were the case
I sort of wonder what would happen with Rob, Duroy, and a de Havilland Mosquito, one of which is now airworthy, and more on the way in the next couple of years. Maybe a VIP ride for Duroy in the bomb bay? Or, if Bel Ami was set in WWII, and Rob was a RAF Fighter Command pilot (an ideal role for him in a future film, BTW), maybe taking Duroy out on a fighter training missing in a Mosquito trainer. After all, the DH Mosquito could out run and out maneuver many of the single seat fighters it fought against. The Mosquito suits Rob anyways--elegant, rugged, purposeful, can "go anywhere and do anything". A good match in my book.
Speaking of books, I hoped that one of those I ordered would get here early today. But it didn't, though it should be here for sure tomorrow. It's already at the post office in town, so it should be here tomorrow afternoon when I get off work. The other one should be here within about a week or so.
I haven't heard much about my outing, so I'm sort of doubtful that it'll happen this week unless it gets set up for Friday or this weekend.
At least I found out that my friend/coworker Tracy will be getting a pretty good birthday present, though it'll be a day late actually. She's getting married weekend after next, and her birthday is the day before. So I wonder, will she be getting two cakes, or just save it for wedding day?
I'll be back later
