I'm not really fond of Monday's week-start review meetings. it takes hours, and isn't as productive as I'd like. At least I usually get to give my presentation first, and then bail. I have a lot of stuff to get out of the way this morning, to boot.

Strong sweet tooth lately... not sure why I'm craving it so much. It's not like my body is in need of raspberry sugar for proper functioning.

I have a case of wanderlust, and as soon as I get the new tech fully worked out, I'm certainly going to take a trip. I just have to decide the duration and destinations.

I didn't know until yesterday that Ray Bradbury has been wheelchair-bound since his stroke in '99. Or if I did, I forgot that I did.

His short story, A Sound of Thunder has been made into a movie... (previews)

It seems the movie takes the introduction and runs with it, probably not in the direction that I want to see, let alone the message.

Speaking of Movies, I really don't see how the studios could improve on The Manchurian Candidate. Someone tell me what the new Gulf War version has to do with Manchuria ? (The Original was based on the Korean war... thus the title.)

Hmm... that image up top might make a good icon. Let's see... Maybe.

I don't know which Private Eye is the most definitive to me... Lew Archer, Richard Diamond, Sam Spade, or Philip Marlowe. Digging Archer right now, because I just finished The Drowning Pool. (the first time I've read it since my days at the BBCL) I've never seen the movie, but wouldn't mind checking it out, now that the tale is fresh in my mind.
