What's the word? This morning i woke up with extra gingers and a spring in my step, i have no idea why but i'm running with it :-)
Today we get a whole bunch of newbies in the office, more minions - muuuuuuuuuuhahaha. Nah shame, they all look a little overwhelmed and lost in translation. It reminds me of my first day of formal employment, 3 weeks fresh out of varsity... i think i wore the wrong outfit, sat in someone else's chair and basically wondered how people a) woke up so early everyday and did this gig for 8 hours a day. Fast forward four years on and i am still wondering how people, myself included, wake up so early everyday and do this gig, lol.
The Land of Oz: Over the weekend i caught Baz Luhrmann's epic story, "Australia" and was quite impressed with all three long hours of it. Nicole Kidman does well as leading lady in this epic romantic drama's and Hugh Jackman is *phwoar* brilliant playing the broody alpha male commitment phobe.
The true star of the show though is the little Aborigine boy who should be winning something for his role. The Australian outback looks quite majestic and the movie doesn't shy away from the injustices the Aborigine's suffered at the hands of the Australian Governement. All in all, go and check it out if you haven't already seen it.
Great Expectations: I am a bit sad to see Bush, mostly (read: only) 'cause who else will keep us entertained with such insipid statements and comments. Sadly that and the mess he's made of everything will be the legacy he leaves behind, and sadly, the mess that Obama spend his entire term trying to clean up.
Obama has his work cut out for him, to say the least. I just fear that there's been too much hype around him and that expectations have been set super-duper high.
He has literally become some Clark Kent comic superhero figure! The world just needs to cut him some slack and let him get on with doing as much damage control as it is humanely possible, or we're ultimately setting him up to fail, putting him up on pedestals and what-not.
That said, i WISH i was in DC for the Inaugaration tomorrow, from the reports i'm getting from that side, it just sounds crazy and so exciting! Sadly, i shall have to witness history in the making from someone's TV set :-S
Enjoy the rest of your Monday's and be good!
