I am currently reading Eragon. I have to say, it is a very good book. What makes it all the more amazing is that Christopher Paolini wrote the book when he was still in High School. If you've seen the movie, and never read the book, you'd be amazed at how bad the movie was and how good the book is. The movie was a poor substitute for the book, as in most cases.

Give it a whirl. I loved it. You might too.

New Job

I officially joined my new employer on Monday. The job is still the same since I was a contractor at the company since August of 2007. Apparently they liked my work and wanted to hire me full time. I am happy. I get a pay raise, more benefits and other perks for being a full time employee now.

Here is to hard work and more successes. Ameen.

I bought IMAX tickets for Watchmen for Friday. Going to go watch it with some colleagues from work. One of the guy's in the group is a comic book nut so I am sure he is gonna have fun. For myself, I am sure it will be alright and not too corny. What is good is that it is on IMAX and not the normal cinema so that; just what I am looking forward to. I haven't gone to the cinema in around 6 months so looking forward to it.

One of the other movies I want to get that I wasn't able to watch and would love to get it when it comes out on DVD is the Wrestler. If you ask me Sean Penn getting an oscar for milk was kinda f'ed up since I thought Mickey Rourke was better in The Wrestler.

Adversity Breeds Inspiration

What does God have in store for me. I know not. Again and again life throws curveballs at me. Each time I think, it can't get any worse, this surely must be it, the epitome of my test; the test of my patience, perseverance and conviction, I am engulfed in another adversity, the target of another curveball. For I am wrong, there are always going to be more tests to endure and more exams to take. Not the tests you take in school, or the exams the teacher wants you to pass. But the one's God tells you to pass. The test of life.

I will endure. I am a tenacious son of a gun. Throw them at me and I will pass all of them. The day I stop being tenacious and stubborn is the day I die. For that is life, to soldier along, to hope for a better tomorrow, to keep praying and working hard.

O blog, I missed thee!

Ah thou keep reminding me, my blog, that thine still exists and I must give thy time and grace thee with my pen. Ahem, so how are you blog? Have you missed me? How about the unexpected, once in a blue moon reader that hops along to this forgotten forest that is my blog? Have the brambles grown far too out of control in my absence? Well fear not, for I am back.

I am actually trying to make myself sleep and since my PC has killed itself so uncermoniously last week (The Power Supply decided to go south for the winter), I am using my Nokia E61i Smartphone to write this post.

That's all for today folks. O and btw, Happy New Year.
