Did anyone here watch the Tonys? I can't help but love them, even when some of the acceptance speeches are so ridiculously over the top pretentious that I want to bean them in the head with a Dan Brown novel. But surely you heard the Book of Mormon: The Musical won, like, everything? OK, not all 14, but most of them. And they won best musical and Trey Parker thanked his co-writer, Joseph Smith and I lol'd and lol'd. I've had a lovely guy post all sorts of links to the music on my recap of the soundtrack, if you want to read it, listen to it, whatever. Part 1, Part 2.
ANd I have this thing I want to write up about why it's such an amazing musical, esp. after hearing performances from other musicals (Anything Goes? Really? Still?) and how it's post modern and what Glee thought it was, but isn't really, but that's so dorky I can't even go there.
I had two camps to get kids to this morning, and another child sick (nothing major, just something that requires a LOT of attention on my part, feh) and I'm feeling tres overwhelmed. I'll put it this way: I've not been able to eat anything yet today. And I need to fix that asap because I have that horrid empty stomach-acid gurgling happening, and a burger and fries would go a long way to fixing it, I think. Mmm, salt. Salt is my friend today. *pets shaker*
And for those that watched Game of Thrones last night and are BLOWN AWAY by the ending like I am (and yes, Smugly Smuggertons that knew the plot of the books, bully for you, but some of us didn't) come share in my Feelings and talk with me. WAAAAH. Also, I worked in a Warren G rap into a high fantasy recap, and followed it with a Lament for Boromir, so I've got that kind of nerd cred working for me. Lol.
winter-is-coming.net has been reccing me as a resource, so that's pretty boss and makes me feel like I matter. Finally, I can put away the torture devices and look in the mirror again! Hurr.
