From two to one
Yesterday I spoke with the construction supervisor overseeing the work on our condo. Happily, he sees no difficulty incorporating the changes we submitted to the designed plan which will see our two bedroom plus den converted into a larger one bedroom plus den. That’s very good news! While I don’t think we’ll get a credit on the work not being performed, we shouldn’t have to fork out extra dollars for the work order change, and, may even get a bit of a bonus when it comes to picking our options. That’s very, very good news! We’re about a month out from that adventure now.
Tonight, the Unicorn Club met for its monthly get-together. Tonight’s special guest was none other than Lady Tanya, who joined regulars Lady Sarah, myself and G for Strongbows and gossip about xxx and xxx (names removed to protect the guilty).
Martin Campbell directs this latest installment of the James Bond money-making machine. I’ll spare us all the rote comparisons of Daniel Craig to those Bond’s who came before him … really, like the genre itself, this Bond is just like the others, very British and stuffy with an eye for ladies of the icy variety and a panache for verbose banter. (sigh) The story follows Bond’s first mission as a 00 agent and has him wandering the usual uppity circles in gorgeous locales following a wispy, tedious story of a uber bad guy with a thing for poker. It’s all so been-there, done-that. Sure this film won a slew of British film awards (the brits are self-serving if nothing else), and sure, it’s slickly produced, but (yawn) in the end do we really care anymore? I, for one, don’t. My rating: 4 out of 10.
