007 - The New One

"Does that mean Casino Royale?" I asked, gesturing to the sign behind the reception desk of the Louisville Athletic Cub.

"No, the other one," replied the attendant.

"Quantum of Solace?"

"That's it," she said.

I headed off toward the Cardio Theater.

The club usually posts the movies they will show a few days in advance. There must have been a change, as "007 - The New One" had not been posted on Thursday. I had gone to the gym planning to listen to some new CDs that we had purchased in New Orleans. But Quantum of Solace was too good to pass up. The iPod went into my pocket but it came back out when I returned to the Shire. Great music with memories of a great time.

Sean Connery will always be James Bond for me. Daniel Craig is a very, very close second.

However, I find that it is Dame Judi Dench who makes the new Bond films. As in almost every one of her films, she is incredible. Can you even name the actor or actress who played M in the earlier movies? I can't. But Dame Judi establishes an unforgettable presence through her amazing performance. "If you could avoid killing every possible lead, it would be deeply appreciated."

Stats for the day: 2.02 miles on the treadmill; 10,324 steps overall; eating within the guidelines.

Today was the weigh-in for a biggest loser type program with friends in Cleveland. The total numbers will not appear, but I will post the pounds lost or the pounds gained each week.

And someday, we will be able to say "Mark - The New One"


  1. Quantum of Solace is a great movie for the cardiotheatre. I love Daniel Craig as James Bond. Sean Connery will always be Bond. But, about Daniel Craig...all that I can say is damn! I hope that the LAC continues to have a good movies!

    By the way, Dame Judi is good in whatever she does. Because of her and Daniel Day Lewis, I may go see NINE.

    Keep up the good work!!

  2. Wait, so is 007 the number?! If so, AWESOME! If not, I wanna know. :) Great job! Keep it up!

  3. "007 - The New One" is what the club had posted as the movie title. No other significance to it.
