Work is going extremely well. We have a very good team, I believe in our business model and what we're doing, and each day is actually a joy to go into the office. As usual the worst part is the drive. This is the fifth and final week that Kaylee has been in Summer Camp, which is actually next door to the office, so she's been coming in and going home with me, and that has made the drive much more palatable.
Speaking of Kaylee, she starts 7th grade next Tuesday. I can't believe how fast she's growing up. She'll be 12 in October! I finally got enough dough to get her her own phone. Heh...I just wrote 'her her'. Not sure how long she'll be at her current school, but at least this is the first time since 4th grade that she'll be returning to the same school from the previous year.
Ya know, there's a good reason why it's awesome to rewatch a show you've already seen all of? I've been rewatching M*A*S*H from the beginning for the last couple weeks. I'm midway through Season 3, and of course the early years are the best and funniest. The thing is, I'm actually really enjoying Klinger AND Father Mulcahy this time around, when they were two of my least favorite characters previously. I'm actually thinking I may enjoy Charles at this point, having already grown tired of Frank. Whereas previously I felt Frank was a superior foil for Hawkeye and Trapper (later BJ). Actually in these early episodes HAWKEYE is actually starting to get on my nerves.
Maybe it's also my age showing too, but I find I relate to these characters a bit more than when I was in my youth. Maybe because I'm a father now, and I can't imagine what it would be like to be away at war away from my family.
The laugh track is extremely annoying. The dynamic between the Swampmen and Henry is pretty awesome, and they don't really run roughshod over him as much as one might think they did. Radar isn't nearly as annoying as he'll become. He was probably the first instance of "Flanderization".
Also knowing that the end is coming for Henry soon, is kind of sad.
I'll check in again in a few seasons with more thoughts.
