Reading & Watching & Buying

Another weekend over, another week begins.
Well, its Tuesday, so it began yesterday. And in true Monday form I had to deal with one of the last people I would want to deal with first thing on a Monday morning. Luckily it wasn't as painful as it could have been, and the sexist rumpelstilkin (ed: my private nickname for him , as I can imagine him throwing a huge tantrum and putting his leg through the floor... if only he'd disappear...) actually managed to listen to whole sentences of mine without interrupting. Wonders never cease to amaze.
The day actually got better as it went on - yes, I was surprised.

We had a new order of books arrive, with about 3 or 4 that I am dying to read. So with much sucking up to the Acquisitons Librarian I have 'The Jane Austen Book Club' by Karen Joy Fowler, and 'Eating with the Angels' by Sarah-Kate Lynch. I am already halfway through 'Jane Austen Book Club', and loving it! It has made me completely want to read all of Miss Austen's books - some of which I have never read before.

I've also been completely naughty and ordered online 'Before Sunset' on DVD - it has come out in NZ now (region 4), and its only $24.95 - very reasonable. Hopefully that will arrive for me this week (yay for free delivery).

Tomorrow and Thursday I am going on my much anticipated SQL course. My work has forked out for the costs (thank god). I am really looking forward to it as it should help me understand our database better.

And tonight I am off to the movies with Sarah - we are finally seeing 'Napoleon Dynamite'. I read that it is similar to 'Rushmore', which I own on DVD and adore.
Well, much work to do.. must go.
