What a crappy week

You know what I’d like to do? Go home, change out of my work clothes, lie down on the couch under a comfortable blanket—my parents got us a really nice one for Christmas—and watch mindless TV. Maybe James Bond movies; I’ve been in a James Bond kind of mood, since I got the Bond soundtracks CD.

In other words, what I’d like to do is just give up. Quit my job, and just live off of my wife’s salary for a while. Then, when I get too bored for that, I could write. And, if things really went well, maybe even sell some of my writing, and get money for it.

Adding to my problem is that half of the blogs I read on a regular basis are written by people who are much younger than me, and are just getting ready to finish their year at college/university, and start their summer break. So they’ll be kicking back in a couple of weeks, watching TV—and probably thinking that they’ve “earned” the break—whereas I’ll still be dealing with the same crap I’m dealing with today.

Wait a minute... I *am* doing that. Minus the talented writing, wife, wife's salary and extent of James Bond movies, as I only own 4.

Trade ya!

Don't worry, I know that my life is extremely good.

I just like to complain sometimes. (Doesn't everyone?)

How many Bond movies do you have anyway?

David Hunter said...

All of them.

I have the three boxed sets, and thay just managed to squeeze in the last one right after it was released on DVD.

From this point forward, I guess I'll have to start buying them one by one.

That's why I've been iffy on boxsets. They like to screw around with packinging betwixt seasons (read: Simpsons).

Yeah, it was interesting, because all of the Bond DVDs in the boxed set had a certain look and feel to them, and they all had similar menus, and similar extra features. And then suddenly they jammed in this last movie, which is nothing like the others; even the cover is markedly different than the other ones.

It still had some good special features, it was just a bit weird to see that one, compared with the others. It didn't feel like "part of the set".
