Many of you commented on the Terracotta Warriors in that you hadn’t heard of them. They are best described here at Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terracotta_Army
If you have seen the Mummy2, you have seen the Terracotta Warriors. There were the porcelain like warriors that came to life and tried to kill Brendan Frasier, et. al. through out the movie.
They are amazing pieces of work and they are supposed to be absolutely magnificent. I cannot wait to see them in the real. Today is a good day. I woke up and made it to work in one piece, that’s always good news. I am listening to “The Doomsday Key” by James Rollins right now on Audio CD. This is a fantastic book and keeps me entertained the 30 or so minutes it takes me to get to work.
I have taken to listening to books on CD on the drive to and from work as it’s almost the only time I get to “read’ these days. Though I am working on reading more, I’ve found that I really do enjoy the audio CD, especially when it’s done well by a reader who can do different voices for different people and read like he really is telling a story and not just reading. The gentleman that does the James Rollins Sigma series is fantastic. By far and away, one of the best in the business. I’ve listened to several and some can just drone on and on. Also, he will keep the same accent and voice for the same person from book to book… you can’t get any better than that! It really makes each book in the series connected and cohesive.
I’m off to a meeting… there are so many of those these days… we’re trying to get another software release out the door and the Mgmt wants to speed up the release process because of the economy. As our competitors have been laying people off and not releasing new versions, this will make us a top competitor when people start buying again. Goodness knows when that will be. We’re so dependant on the Price Per Barrel of Crude Oil.
This price per barrel is a double edged sword for me. I don’t like paying the price at the pump, but the higher it goes, the more secure my company stability and thus my job becomes. It feels bi-polar most days.
Have a good one… be blessed and chin up…
