End of the Day Blahs

If there's one thing I cannot stand, it's having to sit at work with nothing to do. Granted, things could be a whole lot worse (I am, of course, grateful beyond measure that I HAVE work!). Still, sitting here waiting for 4 to roll around does get a little bit annoying. Especially when I could find hundreds of interesting things to do that do not involve this place!

Well, One Ring reiterated that she was not getting me the lightsaber kit for my birthday. Sigh! That's okay, though, because I found out that this is hitting the shelves next month!

According to the write up, there will be more parts, which equals the potential for building some of the more interesting sabers that the series has produced. Mind you, I'd still like to build my own one day; it's just not going to happen anytime soon. Shoot, knowing me, this interest will burn out just like the rest of my temporary obsessions. I have a feeling that One Ring certainly hopes so! : )

If the characters on the box look, well, strangely drawn, it's because they are. The Clone Wars is the name of a new CG animated film due out on August 15th. I've seen the previews, and once you get past the odd sort of animation style (sort of a cross between anime and Saturday morning cartoons), it looks really good. Although Count Dooku looks rather bizarre, in my humble opinion.

All in all, I'm looking forward to the new movie, and reserve the right to buy the kit above. Might not - in all probability I'll just hold off until I head to WDW in October and see what's there.

Funny how the heat can affect my mood. During the day today, when I was cool and indoors, I felt fine and energetic. Now, after making a round trip to the other building, I'm exhausted and worn out. I even stopped for a smoothie at the Starbucks, but I'm still zonked. I've got Kung Fu tonight (and it's held outside), so I need to get my act together. Otherwise I'll miss it like I've missed the last couple of weeks (of course, some of those have been due to holidays and the weather, so it's not all my fault!). I've got errands to run, too. : (

Okay, 30 minutes (roughly) to go. Hope everyone has a great weekend!
