I have no plans as to what this blog o' mine will entail, or what it will evolve into. Only that I would like to have one and I, at times, enjoy writing.
For today, here are some recent events that made me happy:
Slumdog Millionaire Winning BIG at the Golden Globes!!!
This film was one of my four favorites films of 2008 (others include: In Bruges, The Dark Knight and WALL-E). Based on the book, Q & A, the film follows the story of how a "slumdog" - a kid from the ghettos of Mumbai - knows all of the answers on "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?" Also, it is directed by Danny Boyle, who apparently has directed a number of my favorite films without my knowledge! Sneaky bugger! Fabulous film, if you haven't seen it. DO. NOW. Thank you.
January 1st, I made the incredibly wise decision of running the Resolution 5K and Polar Bear Dive. Yep, I ran 3 miles in 40ish degree weather, wind and rain added for a little spice, ran down a boat launch into Lake Washington, which was nice and toasty at 42 degrees, "ran" in and out of neck high water, and finished the last 100 meters in style. By style, I mean wet and cold. However not awesome that description may sound, do not be mislead; it was one of the best ways to start out the New Year and I fully plan to do it again next year. I am also looking for volunteers to join me! Duncan would have been there, but was scheduled to work, but makes mega bucks working on holidays. Jump in the lake in January, or go to work and rake in the dough?
Oh, and I totally beat that guy (1259). No one else seemed to really care to run after the "dive"...
And voila! My first blog! You are witness to it.
