After a long,
Very long day at work yesterday,
I came home to my fiancée who was just finishing up with her work from home day.
She surprised me with an early Valentine’s Day gift, “Nobody Does It Better,” the brand new oral history of James Bond.
With commentary from the actors, directors, extras, etc.
I AM SO EXCITED.
James Bond has been a personal obsession of mine ever since my uncle bought me a VHS copy of License to Kill for Christmas when I was 12.
Ever since then, I’ve been fascinated with:
The original and extended novels.
The wonderful gadgets and Bond cars.
The graphic novels.
While the hardcover edition is brilliantly massive, I can’t wait to devote my reading time to this. I can’t get enough of the behind the scenes, Bond actor stories, sprawling generation transitions, and ongoing sentiments regarding the most successful film franchise of all time.
She really does get me.
Not that I had any doubt, but moments like these always remind me of how much she feels like home.
Cozy, comforting, honest, wildly intelligent and funny, and boy do I love her so.
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
