Random Thoughts for the Blogamathing.

A month??!?!!?  Dying Hobby?!?!?!??

It's been a goofy month.  Working like a botard.

Had a cooler go down at work.  Infuriating set of circumstances that involve simple bullshit negligence.  Made all the more infuriating by being a manager short for the week.  It only made for a 15 hour day, and an 8 hour day off!

Difficult week, made more difficult by the Universe's perverse sense of selective listening.  As I drove to work that Friday, I commented that the only thing that would make this week more difficult would be if the auditor decided to stop in our store.  He'd been in the area, and we'd had the heads up.  Out of 15 stores in our neck of the woods, he wandered into ours.

Work.  Headaches.  Haven't gotten out and done stuff with friends in months.

So.  I was happy for a "normal" week this week.

Even happier that it had a weekend off.

Got to see my friend Julie and her husband John, whom I'd only talked to online before yesterday.

Got to wander out to the Drive-In to take in Amazing Spider-Man 2 last night (which was a disappointment, in that I didn't want to see 2 hours of Andrew Garfield's big sad eyes...)

Anyway.  It's more botardism as we come up on both a holiday and inventory.  Vacation comes quickly thereafter.

You have a drive in where you live? I'm jealous! There was one about two counties over, but they kept weird seasonal hours and I think they just didn't reopen after a while. But I comfort myself with the fact that I can see movies at an awesome Art Deco theater that is almost 100 years old. (Complete with chandeliers, Wurlitzer organ, and staff that dress in 20's clothing!)

As a family man, I just don't get to see movies in the theaters anymore. It's like pulling teeth to get a baby sitter. I missed Spider Man 2, along with Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and even Iron Man 3. I will state that I stopped collecting comics in the 90's but I still love a good movie based on a comic.

Yep. I'm really pleased with the drive-in, which is conveniently located about 7 miles from my house.

It was looking like they might close after 2012, but were able to secure adequate funding to changeover to a digital projector. A few summers, we were going at least once a month, and sometimes more. This was the first time this season...hope to make it a few more times before October.
