Special Delivery

I hope everyone had a nice weekend?  I went to see Quantum of Solace, the new James Bond movie, this weekend.  I hate to be a spoiler, but guess what?  There were a lot of chase scenes and violence.  I don't think the basic formula for a James Bond movie has ever changed, but for some reason I always enjoy them anyway.  After the movie it was time for a margarita, way too many salty chips, and spicy salsa to top it off.  This is life in Southern California, we drink margaritas year round because the weather is warm, and why not?

The rest of my weekend was spent doing mundane things like buying a turkey for Thanksgiving, attacking mountains of laundry, and watching PR play baseball.  And no, I am not an obnoxious mom screaming my lungs out on the sidelines during his games. I'm the one cringing and apologizing, "Oh my Gawd I'm so sorry PR just took your son's head off with that pitch!  Would you like me to go to the hospital with you?"

I do have a few more tidbits on Joe the Bigamist, but I think I'll wait until after the Thanksgiving weekend to share them.  By then he'll probably have gotten himself into more trouble.

Anyway, I have a separate mailing address for blogging purposes.  Briefcase insisted on it when I began Twenty Four At Heart.  He didn't want stalkers, or perverts, or Joe the Bigamist, to know where I live. He made me get a mailing address at one of those Snail Mail places in a nearby town. I rarely think to go check my mail there because I rarely get anything but emails.

On Saturday I remembered I really ought to check my mail.  I hopped in my car, and took a drive.  Much to my surprise I found I did, indeed, have mail waiting for me. It was sent priority mail, because the sender must have felt I have, um, urgent needs. I wonder how many days my mail had been sitting there?  

This is what was delivered:

Any guesses as to what I found inside?

    Your box of “toys” are here, the “toys” are here!
    I drink margaritas year round and it’s NOT warm here. But the addiction DID begin when I lived in Southern California. So what if it’s 35 degrees out, I say. Cheers!

    HAHAHA it’s time!
    Btw, was it just me, or was QoS really hard to follow if you didn’t remember anything about Casino Royale? Also, I thought CR was better. (Disclaimer: it’s my fave Bond to date.) Granted, I really liked the girl in QoS, and Daniel Craig continues to impress me. I wasn’t sure anyone could replace Pierce Brosnan in my eyes, but I was wrong.

    Software? New mouse for your iMac? Oh! That external HD came in…
    I can’t imagine what else it could be. Hey, did you know that Costco has those huge packs of AA batteries? Not sure how that’s related, but it seems to fit.

    I agree with 24 that QoS wasn’t up to Bond par. But I also saw the BEST movie this weekend – Slumdog Millionaire. To all of my fellow 24 readers try and find this movie in your town. It’s worth the effort to travel a few miles to see it. I had to go about 20 miles to find it in Orange County and boy was it a gem. There will be major buzz around Slumdog Millionaire.

    We saw James Bond, too. I think Casino Royale was a little better than this one.
    The box…HAHA I’m already laughing and you haven’t even shown us *exactly* what’s inside.

    I’m thinking it’s probably a scarf or one of those box things when you open it and there’s a smaller box in it, and then a smaller box in that one and so on and so forth…
    (or it’s sex toys. Can’t imagine ANYONE wants to know what is in that box! LOL)

    An inflatable Bond? Ohh, I hope he looks like a young Sean Connery. I love to watch Darby O’gill and the Little People every year during St. Patrick’s Day. My husband thinks I’m just in a festive mood. Nope, I love looking at a young, hunky Bond.
