Early birthday

A couple things: I saw Watchmen. I figured it would be just another comic book movie, maybe some cool stuff, but nothing all that new. It could have been a tad shorter; that aside, I really liked it. Dr. Manhattan's storyline was my favorite, but I don't want to spoil anything. It's not a movie for little kids though; it gets pretty graphic in a few different ways--which I also could have done without, but it didn't hurt the overall story for me. I highly recommend it. For grownups.

The Ichumon work has started, and it's sunk in now. It's just enough extra work to keep me busy without driving me insane. I'm having a lot of fun with it so far, and I'm still bouncy over being hired. :)

Annnnd the best news is that my parents gave me a car as an early birthday gift! It's used, but really, really nice. My old car wasn't horrible, but it had quite a few things wrong with it. The battery kept dying (always when I absoulutely needed to be somehwere too), and it wasn't an automatic, which I never quite got used to. I could drive it, but I didn't like it. Anyway, they found someone to buy that, bought the new one and then fixed it up themselves. My dad is good with cars, and my mom works for a company that sells autoparts, so their powers combined to turn a pretty good car into a great car. I love it! So needless to say, I'm extra super bouncy today.

And my hubby wants to see the Watchman but it is long for me. These days 2 hours is way too long for me and this one is nearly 3 right?
