I might get to see Sully on the night of the 8th September. Opening day. One of the cinemas we frequent always do some special deal of movie and a glass of wine with new releases. Hoping to acquire some tickets this week.

It will be the first time ever, I'll get to see a Clint Eastwood film before most of our members here. Like I said a few posts ago, we usually had to wait months before Clint's latest film made it's way to our shore. Trying to avoid threads here on the board about the film was so hard.

But, isn't your September 8th our September 9th? I think we're synced on this release.

I can't get over this trend of buying movie tickets a month ahead of time.  ;D

It's a special screening and I'm really only going for the complimentary glass of wine. ;)

Well, damn. We don't have "special screenings" with wine in Tennessee.  :(

I've never heard of a complimentary glass of wine to go with a movie. There are theaters that serve alcohol in the US, of course, but no special screenings quite like that.

I got another job and I've been there 25 years this September. I loathe management there and we've had plenty over the years. It just seems to get worse and worse with each passing year. Why do I stay? The conditions we have, such as a four day week and the salary.

I don't hate my job. It's just the muppets that run the place.

Today marks 25 years in my job. I really can't believe it's been that long but it is. I still remember the first day walking in.

Wow! I can't believe anyone has that kind of loyalty anymore. Good for you!  O0

Hm, you don't want to know how long I've been at MY job. (Which is good, because I'm not telling!)

Congrats on the silver anniversary, SK!

Speaking of your job...

I have another friend who's a Librarian -- close to you (on the Jersey side).  Her email signature is:

Last week in Melbourne a Qantas jet had to abort a landing due to 120km winds. :o

You don't see a snake making it's way down George St, Sydney very often.

So ... a red-bellied black snake bellies up to the bar in the Morrison Bar & Restaurant in Sydney. Puts down a $50 note, says, "I'll have a Boags Premium, please." Bartender serves him the beer, gives him back $2.50 change, says "We don't get too many red-bellied black snakes in here." Snake snaps back, "And at these prices, you won't get too many more!"
