Hellllllllllllooooooooooooooo..... It's a Saturday night, I am bored (and procrastinating working). I am currently in South Carolina for work, been here since July 4th. I am averaging about 14 hours a day for work, my max has been 22 (I got two hours of sleep and worked 15 the next day). Anyway, it is the end of the month and I should be at my computer working, but I have been addicted to the Zone today. When I travel, I tend to have very little time to do anything. That being said, the first thing I do is unplug my television, so as not to distract me from work. My freetime is limited to an hour or 2 a day of reading, learning guitar if I can squeeze it, or, if I am lucky, I treat myself to a movie. I just finished Lolita, by Vladimir Nabokov. An absolutely amazing book. Humbert Humber is an amazingly vile character that you actually fall in love with by the end (think Lester Burnham from American Beauty). The most amazing thing about the book is Nabokov's mastery over language. It's amazing because he is not a native speaker, but is up there with the likes of Shakespeare with his ability to use words to their maximum ability. Last night, I watched Brokeback Mountain for the first time. Also an amazing film. I do think Crash deserved the Oscar, but that movie was nothing less heart wrenching. You felt sad for everyone at the end. Literally - every single person. There was another thread a week or so ago questioning Heath Ledger's acting ability. That was an amazing feat by every actor in that movie. Thoroughly enjoyed it. I guess the point to all of this is that today, housekeeping no doubt noticed that I had a copy of Lolita and Brokeback Mountain - I wonder if they will report me as some sexual deviant. South Carolina is a beautiful state - if I can find a day to take off work, I am going to go play in Charleston or hike somewhere in the Congaree. There is no purpose to this thread, consider it a mini-Midswat thread or something, I don't care. I am starting to get cabin fever out here (my job doesn't have me working with other people - I come out here and see my insureds and spend the day in my hotel, maybe get out for a cup of coffee, dinner or a drink). Just wanted to spend some time to write something, and considering my blog gets no traffic, maybe someone would be interested in the going-ons of Crown Royal. Have a good evening!
