Ahhhh, Ben Affleck, anyone?

There was a rumor floating around the office this morning that Ben Affleck was down the street shooting scenes for a new movie. My work-friend, Rebecca, and I headed on out and easily found him.

There was a whole lot of sitting going on. I was a little surprised as I expected to find hordes of people and to maybe catch a glimpse of the top of his head. As we were standing there taking pictures with our phones, he checked us out. No, really - he was looking at us.

Rebecca and I both had meetings to attend at 11:00 so we sent one of our co-workers out to take more pictures. And you know what? I don't even really like Ben Affleck. (Come on, he's no Johnny Depp!) I just wanted to say that I saw Ben Affleck.

A quick search of the internet and I discovered that this movie is called The Working Men.

It was a little funny to me that we could spot the extras a mile away. See the extra in the picture above. No one looks like that. Well, maybe one guy in twenty. There was this group of extras all wearing trench coats and dressed in suits, carrying briefcases and umbrellas.

I give credit to Rebecca and Carolyn for the above photos. I am horrible with keeping up with technology. My Nokia phone is a bare bones model that I've had since December 2006. It does take pictures but they are terrible looking. I did take pictures today and forgot to hit the save button so I lost them all. Figures. My phone before this Nokia was an analog phone. One of my main reasons for getting rid of that one was that Cingular was charging me an extra $5 a month for having an analog phone.

Okay, I'm going to have to see this movie now!

Ok, obviously I'm not that good at technology since my name is clearly not 6p00d83451f7fa69e2. Although it does kind of look like my last name. LOL!
