Welcome to Snippet Wednesday. At least I think it's Wednesday. It is, isn't it? I haven't been to work a single day this week and have completely lost track of time. Help me out here.
Here's the illness tally so far... Nathan: flu symptoms on Friday and low-grade respiratory infection on Monday, Kevin: flu symptoms on Tuesday and Wednesday, Katie: flu symptoms on Tuesday and Wednesday. Oh, we're a healthy bunch. Katie's at work today while Nathan's at daycare because I'm at home the sickest of the bunch. I actually slept a couple hours on our bathroom floor this morning. What does that tell you?
So there's a Batman television series called Gotham that is in the works. It's supposed to focus on the early days of Bruce Wayne and, more specifically, James Gordon. And they've now cast Officer/Detective Gordon. He will be played by Ben McKenzie of The O.C. and SouthLAnd fame. My thoughts on this? AWESOME! If I only knew McKenzie from The O.C., I might be hesitant, but he was pretty great in SouthLAnd as, what else, a cop. I'm kinda looking forward to this.
Saturday was fun. In addition to Nathan being sick, I tried my hand at installing a replacement side mirror on Katie's car. The mirror got nicked off and was completely unusable so we ordered one from eBay and I figured out how to install it. It wasn't the prettiest job especially with me cursing and swearing over losing a socket in the door. But it's on and it works and Katie can see out the side of her car. Yay!
Just happened to flip on Cinemax and found Apollo 13. I haven't seen that movie in years and had actually been wanting to see it lately. Okay, movie channels have their place even if they cost more. And what is it about Tom Hanks that we can watch movies like Apollo 13 and Captain Phillips -- stories that we know the end to -- and he still makes them utterly interesting and suspenseful? I maintain that Tom Hanks is one of the best actors alive.
Okay. Gotta go. Talk to you all soon!
