One down, many to go . . .

The duathlon went off with only a couple hitches (the lead cops got the course wrong and pissed off the first five bicyclists). The weather was perfect, numbers were not great, but the event site was much improved over last year. I have no idea where we go from here on it, but we'll have to see later.

We were on site for five and a half hours, then got coffee and crashed. I spent the rest of the day watching the Law & Order: CI marathon on USA, plus 'War of the World' (Cruise). Then we had a big thunder storm here with rain and lightening, and it was eerie after watching the movie.

We worked from 8:30 to 4:30 yesterday, then went and saw 'The DaVinci Code.' It was okay, Bettany was fantastic (worth seeing the movie for), but Tom Hanks was a huge disappointment. (If only Russell could have played the role.) Funny how much more suspenseful the book was, considering the medium. I guess the box office was huge. I thought Mission was far more entertaining.

I have a 7:30 meeting tomorrow morning, and I have dozens of ops orders to get out in the next couple of days. But Friday was a great day. Got the Coro script almost done, the radio station satisfied, and we finally signed a contract with the film guys. That felt very good after all this time. Jenny and I went out for a beer with Kelly, Adrian and Dani, and it was so good to see them. Kelly's willing to come in and help out on Memorial Day. She rocks.

I'm beat. But it's a good kind of beat (old joke).

Not a bad weekend, really, considering all the work! But my legs ache after all that standing around and standing around. (You'd think I'd done the Duathlon! Heh.)

Yes -- "Mission Impossible: 3" was a far better movie than "The DaVinci Code." (What a disappointment.) But it was great to run out and see it right off, anyway! (Amazing how we can get a ton of work done and still manage to have fun, too -- isn't it?)

I was enjoying that "Law & Order: CI" marathon. Love those lead characters, I really do...

It was interesting to hear all the directors and staff discussing how the event could be improved for next year, by the way.

Anyway, we should head to bed soon, so we can get up decently tomorrow. (I can't believe we didn't get our pedicure -- or get to Rite Aid for my hair products! Oh well...
