Sunday Already?

Time sure does fly anymore, doesn't it? I have to work tonight so it's hard for me to fully enjoy the experience that is Sunday Tailgating. We subscribe to the NFL Sunday Ticket on DIRECTV. This enables us to watch up to 16 games each Sunday and Rob really goes all out in the kitchen making food for us to enjoy for our own little tailgate party at home. Today, he is making hot wings (honey barbecue for me) and potato salad. I don't mind working odd hours, holidays and weekends for the most part. In my job, I feel I'm doing an important thing for the community so it pays off. It is hard sometimes though not to be on the same schedule that Rob is with the same days off. I never thought I would enjoy working the graveyard shift, but it's not too bad. It would be alot harder if Rob had a problem with my schedule, but he has been so understanding for the last 8 years that I've worked for the PD.

Last night after Rob got the TIVO installed (required a new dish, so it was like a whole new satellite system) and Rob played around with it for a little while, we watched a DVD. This one was MAN ON FIRE starring Denzel Washington, Christopher Walken and Dakota Fanning. Denzel plays a man hired as a bodyguard to a little girl in Mexico. He tries very hard to keep from caring about her outside the job, but she manages to wrap herself around his heart. She is kidnapped and presumed dead and Denzel's character is left bullet-ridden and recovering in a hospital. When he recovers, he begins hunting down everyone responsible and killing them. The ending was a surprise and the action was very intense. I gave it a 4 star rating out of 5 only because I felt the ending could have been different. I recommend it, though.
