i went to see casino royale last night and made the mistake of arriving prior to the previews. i saw the trailer for 'rocky balboa' and it absolutely ruined it for me. i was going to see the film anyway, but the trailer basically shows you the whole thing. so for 2007, i resolve to avoid all movie trailers.

Funny. I went with my new wife on our one night with no kids in months, to see Casino Royale. The tickets were $9 each, and the screen was smaller than my TV (never been to that theater). The only seats were way to the right and put a crick in my neck.

I went to the manager and got my money back before it started.

Was it good?

Get a gf... maybe. I love being single but it does wear you out. It's almost time for a change of pace.

A latino woman (raised in canada) at work asked me to be her date to the company xmas party. There's some definite potential there as soon as her bf leaves the country, maybe even before. I've never met a girl so forward. I know she'll be smashing in bed!

She's 4 years older which is unusual for me, but she doesn't look a day over 24 and is very pretty. And she's actually interesting, which is hard to find. She's reading Tolstoy right now and loves talking about history and woody allen movies. Talk about a great combo.

We seem to have a lot in common so I'm definitely considering taking a real stab at a relationship for a change. Then again, my peruvian chick gets back from brazil in january so who knows what i'm gonna do.

Figured, well now with the latest Time declaring me as the Man of the Year I should be a shoe-in for Sexyest Man Alive for People Magazine (just waiting for their foil covered front to say "Sexyest Man Alive: You" that would be original *rolls eyes*)

Last year's resolution was to move to a new apartment, and I ended up surpassing my expectations.

This year my resolution is to get back in shape.

I have a standing resolution that involves finding a new girlfriend. Fortunately, the nickname "*****cat" is portable. The current *****cat would be a better mistress than main squeeze.

next year, i want to be fitter, happier, more productive, comfortable, not drinking too much
Regular exercise at the gym, 3 days a week
Getting on better with my associate employee contemporaries at ease
Eating well, no more microwave dinners and saturated fats
A patient better driver, a safer car, baby smiling in back seat
Sleeping well, no bad dreams, no paranoia
Careful to all animals, never washing spiders down the plughole
Keep in contact with old friends, enjoy a drink now and then
Will frequently check credit at moral bank, hole in wall
Favors for favors, fond but not in love
Charity standing orders on sundays ring road supermarket
No killing moths or putting boiling water on the ants
Car wash, also on sundays, no longer afraid of the dark or midday shadows
Nothing so ridiculously teenage and desperate nothing so childish
At a better pace, slower and more calculated, no chance of escape
Now self-employed, concerned, but powerless
An empowered and informed member of society, pragmatism not idealism
Will not cry in public, less chance of illness, tires that grip in the wet
Shot of baby strapped in back seat, a good memory still cries at a good film
Still kisses with saliva, no longer empty and frantic like a cat tied to a stick
That's driven into frozen winter ****, the ability to laugh at weakness
Calm fitter, healthier and more productive
a pig in a cage on antibiotics

And that's option number two! Who's to say I can't have a mistress?

Stop buying clothing and shoes. I'm going to try going cold turkey for real this time. Wish me luck.
