Calling Dr. Bombay! Calling Dr. Bombay!

So tonight is my first night as a real employee of my new company. It’s my first night of “on call”. Dial tone crisis? Call SUPERTECH! In the back of my mind, I’m hoping that this is some sort of vicious hazing exercise, but in all truth I know it isn’t. I’ve already put in an hour of overtime this evening and I’ve only been home for 3 hours and 56 minutes as I type this. I have to admit that the geek in me is completely reveling in this new found geekdom; coordinating and dispatching and taking care of things. Am I going to be enjoying this at three in the morning? Probably not, but when I get feeling cranky, I can take a look at this blog entry and remember how excited I was to be a full member of the Network Operations Center team.

Speaking of calling Dr. Bombay, I read in one of the entertainment magazines that the Bewitched movie wrapped filming shortly before Christmas and is now in post production for an early July release date. Being the rabid Bewitched fan that I am, I am mostly excited about this movie. I think Nicole Kidman can pull it off nicely. The premise of the movie is a little bit different, in that it’s a movie about a witch who is part of a remake of the television show Bewitched, but I’m thinking that the spirit of the original series is going to shine through. If you haven’t seen the teaser, please take a moment to do so if you’re so inclined. I’m delighted to see the original twitch noise has been preserved. And I think Shirley MacLaine is going to be absolutely fabulous as Endora!

And speaking of all things witchly, I’ve been doing some more reading on Paganism and Wicca. Very, very fascinating. I’m not going to be levitating or freezing time or anything other “charming” things, but I find the whole nature based belief system resonates well with my soul. When other religions are preaching that you can’t do this or you can’t be that and there’s only one path that you can follow, it’s nice to read about a belief that accentuates the positive in each and every person and accepts others for who and what they are.

Tinka tinka tee!
