Hi-Yah

It's been over a week since I posted. Sometimes, my computer is so slow and cranky that about all I can accomplish is checking the e-mail. I saw "Casino Royale" last night. I thought it was a lot of fun. My friend Kiki is a Bond freak (though my little brother has collected all the Ian Fleming books) and she was a little disappointed. Though I like Daniel Craig, I don't think he's quite "posh" enough for the Bond role. That being said, I liked the movie. I wished the villains were a little more freakish looking; they were merely creepy and dressed like everybody else. Some great action shots. I admired the fact that they got the cinematography to mimic movies from the 70's. I thought the female leads make-up was very glam 80's. I thought Julian Wright was underutilized, however it'll be a great payday for him. I think he is a great actor. I first became familiar with him in the role of "Basquiat". So, I recommend this film. It was rollicking good fun.
Over the last week, I just worked. Went to two new restaurants -they've been there, I just haven't been there. On Tuesday, Kiki,me and a couple of friends went to the "Great Wall" in Bedford. All you can eat buffet. I was up a pound at Weight Watchers the next day ! On Friday, I went to "Dave's Famous Barb-e-Que" up on route 1. I had the catfish. It was good but I couldn't help comparing it to Blue Ribbon and Redbones.
On Saturday , I made a master list of little tasks I would hope to accomplish soon. Planning to achieve the bulk of them on Sunday morning. Then the electricity went out for 2 and half hours. From 8 am to 1o:30 am. Some of my tasks required electricity, at the very least , lighting. Thwarted again. I have been knocking off the tasks as best as I can. Today , before I go to the first job, I'll drop a bag at Goodwill.
I started to have car trouble again. The car would shut off when I took my foot off the gas. SO, if I had to brake in traffic, the car would shut off. I had to turn the key off, turn it back on and get into gear all on the fly. It was getting a little dangerous coming home in rush hour traffic on 128 Friday night. Regular traffic, like the lights on Mass. Ave. were hell. I was late for work on Saturday. I called my garage and Herbie said it was probably a vacuum hose and to bring it in on Monday. I did, I was later than intended because of all the stopping , starting and shifting , I was completely drenched in nervous sweat by the time I got there. I was hoping I'd get the car back in time to go to work on Tuesday. Guess what ? They had it fixed in a couple of hours AND they didn't charge me ! Can you believe that ? So . . .. . I am mobile.
Okay , there we go . I think we're all caught up now. Sorry about the delay. Have a Happy Thanksgiving !
