Yesterday we had a small bit of relief from the rain. Today it’s back with a vengeance. Apparently, we’ve already broken Seattle’s record for the wettest November on record and the month is barely half over. It has just been dumping here lately. I remember a few years ago there was worry of a summer drought because the reservoirs hadn’t filled up enough during the rainy season. Guess there’s no danger of that in 2007 because those things must surely be ready to burst.
I suppose it’s good that it’s crappy out because I have a bunch of GR work to do today. I need to catch up on a bunch of e-mails, review various materials, make a few phone calls, and do some writing for the Pirate’s Guide to Freeport. I also need to do some serious thinking about where the PDF market is heading and GR’s place therein. That may be a topic for a post another day.
Last night the family went out to see Casino Royale. Overall, damn good movie and the best Bond in a long time. As a fan of the film Layer Cake, I knew Daniel Craig would be great for the role and he really nailed it. For decades James Bond has been a caricature; Craig made him feel like a character. And Eva Green was the delicious French icing on the cake. Of course, if you saw Bertolucci’s the Dreamers, you knew that already.
Before I had back into the RPG salt mines, I just wanted to thank everyone for the well wishes on my new gig. I really appreciated it.
