The contractor is here demolishing the Master bathroom… My parents are renovating both bathrooms and the kitchen over the next few months, all of which sorely need it. The Master bathroom, however, is in the worst shape, so it is definitely the launchpad. I am certain they will have the thing gutted today, because the tile is barely held on the wall as it is.
Sunday we were hanging out most of the day, we rented Saving Silverman based on the presence of Jack Black, but while the first half of the movie was fairly funny, the second half was painfully boring. Later Sunday night we finally did get out to see Kill Bill with Chuck, and it was just as enjoyable as when we saw the preview screening back in August. The movie we saw in August was almost identical to the release version, albeit the ending was slightly different (for those who saw it this weekend, A bit was added into the conversation between Bill and Sophie Fatale, as well as the footage of The Bride on the plane making her list), but it didn’t “change” the ending. After the movie we stopped by the Budd Lake Diner for some chow.
Monday found Corinna and I sleeping in for quite awhile and finally wandering into Manhattan to visit her friends Sara and David (and their daughter Sappha). Originally, we were supposed to meet with them and then Corinna was going to leave for Boston that evening, but she couldn’t get a ticket so she had to leave Tuesday morning. So I hung out with them until about 10:30pm and Corinna spent the night so she could be closer to Chinatown (and the bus stop) for her 7am bus. It sucks being so far away from her, but at least it’s “do-able”.
It looks like I may have some very short-term contracting work doing some Mozilla development for a Spanish company…. Nothing is finalized yet, but they pursued me and we have discussed rates and stuff, so it looks good. It will come out to probably about 600 bucks, but with the potential for more work in the future.
