How a Jackrabbit spends the day off...

Well I did something I never thought I'd do... take a day off.

I know, astounding, isn't it? Fact is, I don't like to leave my co-workers in the lurch. So even if they beg me to take time off, I usually don't like to. But considering all the stress over the past month with this remodeling kick, plus equipment and computer issues, and with basketball starting next week, now was as good a time as any to take some time off.

So what did I do? Not a whole heck of a lot. Kept in contact with work, chatted with some friends on-line, and slept in til noon. I also took a road trip to Mitchell and had a very lovely dinner at The Depot. If you ever find yourself in Mitchell, South Dakota, I highly recommend The Depot. I usually eat there at least once a year and I have yet to be disappointed. They are very good.

Then it was off to the movie theater to catch the new James Bond movie, "Casino Royale". All I can say is... WOW!!! I was ready to write off the whole James Bond franchise after a couple of non-very-impressive last movies. But Daniel Craig as Bond... WHOA! I still like Sean Connery, but this guy is very impressive, and I was happy to hear he's doing a couple of more movies... hopefully they can grab me like "Casino Royale" did.

Then it was a pleasant chat with a friend of mine, who also accompanied me to the dinner and the movie. Home by 1 and up by 5 to work this morning. All in all, though, it was an excellent day off. But I'm really looking forward to next spring... VACATION!

Craig was the first Bond I've really enjoyed since Connery .. I just hope he's now taking some well-deserved time out to gloat to all the haters who doubted he could pull this off
