And that a bunch of land-locked Jews made submarines and sailed to America where there were bees, horses, and they made roads with re bar and wrote on golden plates. Yes, I'm mocking myself for having been Mormon, good times.

You can read my reviews of the Book of Mormon: The Musical's soundtrack here. You'll never hear a more beautiful voice sing about how "soon life won't be so... shitty!" than in this soundtrack. GOOD TIMES.

ACT 1
ACT 2

Yesterday saw our biggest spike in hits yet, 1400 in one day - not too shabby for not advertising, right? Most popular links are the Game of Thrones recaps and Sam's Thor review, because we're awesome and hilarious and Sam uses pictures.

OK. Yesterday, in between running like a chicken sans head, I finally sat and read the Sweet Valley Confidential book. WOW, IS IT SHITTY! Like, Francine Pascal has MASSIVE contempt for her own characters. I'm totally going to recap the book because it's delightful in a bad-fic sort of way. Character assassination like gang busters.

I have an audition today that I'm really wishing I'd not agreed to do, because I'm just not feeling it any more. Auditions blow, in case you didn't know that. Also, I'm getting too old for this shit - trying to disguise crow's feet and my own tiredness is exhausting. First World problems, waaaah. Hahaha.

OH! The end of the world is this Saturday! dovil, because of GST, you'll be taken out first, so I expect some Ace reporting to give me an idea of when my last 18 hours will start. I plan on eating all the foods ever and shooting random people in their butts. I mean, why not?

There have been some rather awesome links about this. For example

http://eternal-earthbound-pets.com/

and this nice instruction manual which says quite clearly - do not go out and shoot random people in their butts!

http://eternal-earthbound-pets.com/

They both amused me quite a bit.

*cough* they both amused you because.... I'll let you discover why. ;)

Oh man, I am having a FIELD DAY with this whole rapture thing. How dumb am I gonna look if it turns out to be true?

Damn it stoney! I am a frakkin secretary and I make these mistakes all the time. It's what I get for faffing at work when I should be working.

Here's the damned instruction manual.

Also - I got to be in a film a few months ago. That was one VERY fun evening! I want to do it again. I laughed ALL NIGHT LONG (between takes of course!) I got to play a crazy homeless lady. All this long gray hair has to come in handy for something. Of course I will let the world know if the film is selected at the local film festival.

HEE. i do that stuff, too.

Oh, that's so cool! It *is* fun, isn't it? Especially when everyone on set is jovial/fun to be with. Yes, yes, let us know!

Set? What set? We were guerilla filming at the light rail station. Parkin' illegally. Makin' trouble. hehehehe. We did have permits but we did park illegally too!

My mama went to see BoM in NY, and says:

"a dizzying weekend of Jerusalem (not ever to be missed, a tour de theatre-force) and Book of Mormon, a hilarious, irreverent, TV-comedy central-cartoonish but also humanely clever brand new musical comedy romp – packed, a totally cheerful audience, many celebs, no one dare miss this."

Does she write for Broadway.com? Also, I've not heard of ANYONE who's gone to see it and not loved it. MUST SEE, AUGH!

I don't -think- she writes for Broadway.com, but she and I were estranged for many years and have only recently reacquired each other, so she might write for anyone.

YOU MUST GO.

See? It is written.

Ah! I just thought it sounded like she was writing for an audience, but that makes PERFECT SENSE that she's being intelligent etc. with you. All I know is that it made me want to see it more, so kudos to your mom.

Ahahaha, IT IS WRITTEN. *chin stroke*

I'm going to tell everyone at work exactly what I think of them RIGHT NOW! This plan will not backfire at all!

Our media has reported on this two nights in a row. Our media is dumb.

(Yay about the website, boo about you being all old and wrinkly though, that sucks. If you want me to retype this in bigger font just let me know.)

I'm going to rack up a ton of debt, punch my neighbors in the face, and lie naked in the yard doing coke.

(And seriously. Why aren't you writing for HDJM again? You can do any show you like, even a NZ series. Or movies. Or books.)

If I reviewed anything it wouldn't be cutting edge and happening, and everyone would yawn and fall into a coma and your readership would plummet! PLUMMET, I TELLS YA! And then I'd feel guilty and have to come up with a fake End of the World prediction so I could excuse my drug fuelled, neighbour punching lifestyle while surrounded by a front lawn filled with trucks backing up and unloading consumer items.

I have seen the future!

Since I work overnights, I'm tempted to post once an hour in my facebook (midnight GST - still here.... GST -1 still here... LOL!!!!!) But I suspect that would annoy the heck out of people really quick. *evil grin*

I can't wait for Saturday! I'm attending the Universal Post-Rapture Looting. (or as El Jefe calls it, Combat Shopping) http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=121968371215699 And I'm also hoping for Zombies. All my dreams may come true on Saturday!

We're building our Apocalyptic Playlist on FB today for my blog tomorrow. Lots of fun suggestions! Saturday is gonna Rock! (yeah, I'm just a little too excited about being Left Behind...)

We're thinking of making bodies to burn out of Nathan's Hot Dogs for our "Burning in Hell BBQ" on Saturday. I can't wait, either! LOL!

Anne, this comment JUST came through. What?!

OK, I love that TAL interviewed her, I'm going to have to get that!! And really, I think Francine Pascal is just a nutjob, that cinches it for me.

Do you have your preparedness kits ready? Not because the world is ending, but because we can make a buck selling them Saturday morning! Hee.

There is no end to the Sweet Valley High books... *sigh* I am not sure I should be happy or horrified about this. :-P I wonder if I can digg up my old collection when I visit mom next time... *ponders*

Oh I was HOPING you had reviewed the Book of Mormon soundtrack! I just downloaded it after the Tonys, cause Amazon had a special where it was only $1.99, and I was all YEAH I CAN DO THAT. I've been listening to it for days now, and it's the best thing to listen to while you exercise, EVER.

Also, I first heard the "Making Things Up Again" song on the bus, and this was my face: :/ O.O *must not laugh like crazy person on bus*

Also, did you hear that this fall they are TAKING THE SHOW ON THE ROAD? Yes, if it comes anywhere near us, me and my fiance are going to see it. So you may have a chance to see it too!!

Just wanted to say that I've been following your blog for a while! I think this is the first time I ever commented.

Actually... I never even friended your journal or anything, I just realize that. I had it bookmarked, and would wander over ever so often.

May I friend you?

Of course you may friend! It's your reading list, after all. :D

And really, the soundtrack is fantastic, right? Just excellent and hilarious and spot on, imo. I hope you get to see it! (But it doesn't start touring until fall of 2012, woe!!)

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
