after this weekend it will be smooth sailing...
i have to finish up a couple of graphics projects, editing Dublin Up, and finishing the Tom Collins the movie script.
tuesday im leaving for Arizona with Mac & friend to catch the Cubs spring training (something i've always wanted to do; 3 or 4 games) and St. Paddys Day at Arizona State. i'll be back the following monday leaving the whole rest of spring break to enjoy.
april 1st Amanda and i are going to see Jon Stewart, which was my 1 year anniversary present to her. Sin City is also released that day so I will be in the theatres that afternoon. i am a lucky boy that i have mondays and fridays off next term. then a week later Fever Pitch is in threates.
Fever Pitch is one of my favorite books. it's by Nick Hornby who seemingly writes about a british version of my life (or any other 20-something romantic fanatic). the book is about a man having to expose his obcession (Arsenal, a soccer team) with women. it's a great look into a sports fans mind that very few of us can ever hope to explain audibly. let alone to someone with a vagina.
now its turned into a romantic comedy with jimmy fallon and drew barrymore involving the Boston Red Sox. now, i love romantic comedies. i admire the boston red sox. i like jimmy fallon and drew barrymore. im very excited about the movie.
the book was actually tuned into a film in 1997 with Colin Firth but it is very very british but very good. i don't think that Fever Pitch (2005), which doesn't have quite the same ring as "ptich" is a soccer term, will have the same impact that the book or older film will. i think the book should be given out by sports guys (not men) to gals early in a relationship to begin to prepare them.
baseball season starts and i have at least 13 games to go to this season. i will be graduating halfway through that.
seasons. im sick to death of hearing about bloody seasons. we live our lives in YEARS.
im really hoping for the UIC job. its unbelieveable for someone like me. 30k a year, an apartment, full benefits, and free tuition. and i will get to work with students creating tv shows. as fun as it would be to work under Tom Collins (wink) i think i might have to accept this over the OFCCP job if i was offered the position.
