I saw Quantum of Solace last night...and I came away more than a bit disappointed. The plot, if it existed at all, was awfully thin; while explosions and fires are cool, they can only carry a movie so far. It wasn't nearly the film that Casino Royale was. That being the case, I enjoyed Daniel Craig's portrayal of 007 as much as in the last movie.

I've returned to the State of Fail after two relaxing and restful days back at my ancestral home. After not making it home last year, and being very angry with that, I was very pleased to enjoy Thanksgiving dinner with the family. I also sated my White Castle fix, and secured fresh stocks of Vitamin Y - ninety-six bottles in total, though much of that is designated as gifts to co-workers, present and past, who can't obtain such greatness here. Buying the Yuengling in bulk is economical too - every bottle I purchased today costs thirty cents less than a Samuel Adams of equal size.

This afternoon, on the ferry ride back over here to the Armpit of New England, I was able to seriously get into Happy Hour is for Amateurs...and it's every bit as good as I thought. If you have a job that you can't stand, one that splits your persona in two and makes you feel like you're wearing a straitjacket, you should delve into this book with a quickness. Here's to you, PhilaLawyer.
