Can I just say…

jack_bauer-badass.jpg…how hardcore the show 24 is? I’m late getting on the 24 wagon, I know, but Great Salted Butter Nuts!

We started with Season 1 and are about 6 hours away from finishing Season 3. Season 3 is the most hardcore yet. I won’t say anything in case someone hasn’t seen it but plans to, but…just…damn!

I really think 24 has changed how far other shows are willing to go with their stories now. I felt the most recent Heroes episode had some 24-style hardcoreness in it. We’ve come along way from The A-Team where no matter how far the bad guys’ car falls off the cliff, they always crawl out just before it explodes.

We hope to get caught by up the time season 7 airs, I think we can even though we’ve got a lot left to watch. No spoilers please!

P.S. I googled for a Jack Bauer pic and found one very similar to the one I created, but they had it marked “private” on flickr so I respected their wishes and didn’t steal it. I just borrowed the idea.

Resumé Advice

So I’m updating my resumé which I haven’t done in years. Anybody have some good tips or resources? I will ask google as well, but if anybody is in a position that they hire people and sort through resumés in their job, please offer some advice. Or if you’ve had good results doing a certain thing, please leave a comment.

Mini Update

Notre Dame Rose WindowAaaaand we’re back. Aaaaand we’re beat. We’d been up about 25 hours by the time we finally fell asleep in our own beds for the first time in over two weeks. My internal clock is having trouble adjusting to the Central time zone. I sleep for a few hours and then am wide awake in the early morning when I should be sleeping until at least noon.

I might post some excerpts from my travel journal and I’ll work on getting some pictures uploaded, though it will take a while. There’s, like, a ton of stuff to do when you’ve been away for two weeks.

In other news, the girl I wrote about in this post found me on myspace and I, probably unwisely, sent her the link, but she seems to be a good sport about it.

Also, for the first time in over a year, I’m in a new theatre show. More on that later.

Three Oh

I spent my 30th birthday dinner in an Irish pub in Barcelona Spain being served by an Austrailian and an Indian. It wasn’t terribly exciting but it probably sounds cool.

Thanks for all the birthday wishes. You’re all swell people.
