Last night: Game of Thrones, the Mavs (hells to the YEAH! NBA CHAMPS!) the Tonys, and Real Housewives. Thank goodness for DVRs.

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. yet

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.

Thank you for the clarification! I paused while surfing the TV and I was like oooh that's right. The Tonys. I was like is that one of the dudes from South Park? For some reason, I have trouble knowing who is Trey and who is Matt. *blush* Now I know!

Slinking away now....

Well, we can't all be obsessed with Matt and Trey like I am, so no worries. :D

Re: Game of Thrones Haiku and such..
Was that show last not not OUTSTANDING?

Also, lol! (Remember, if ever stuck in a haiku, end with refrigerator.)

i'm TOTALLY going to be reading the novels - well, book 1 when season 1 is over. I'll see if I can hold out the same way with the other seasons/books. PROBABLY NOT.

Have you been to see Book of Mormon yet? I would love to see it with you next time I'm in Dallas!

If you can manage to bring Broadway musicals to Dallas when you travel, YOU ARE A MIRACLE WORKER! Hee! (Now, meeting in New York would be another thing of awesome.)

Oh, speaking as someone who knew the plot of the books, I can assure you that I was not at all Smugly Smuggerton. It took me five tries to watch the entirety of the Temple of Baelor scene. That was hard.

*holds you tightly* I tend to draw people that like to mock my pain, lol.

And oh MAN, was that not just jaw dropping?! I must have screamed (breathlessly, with a pillow clutched to my bosom) NO!!! about five times.

SUCH GOOD TV!

I know I just left a comment over at Hey, Don't Judge Me, but I'm horrible at comments. I've only just finished the latest episode of Game of Thrones, and everything is all still percolating in my brain. I am utterly shocked at the ending of Baelor. I never saw that coming. I thought for sure that a crow would be coming in at the last moment with news of the thing that would make the Queen pause and, thus, put a stop to the goings on.

I'm also starting the book tonight. I can't until after the season is over, even if it is next week. Besides, there's no way I'll be caught up by then.

I have so many other thoughts, but I think my brain is still in shock.

Also, I kinda want an icon of Arya from a couple episodes back, looking innocently at her father when he asked her what she was doing in the dungeons and saying "Chasing cats."

I am SO HAPPY that you are watching it, too!! (What did you think of the Renly/his lover scene? Aside from there needing to be more sex? LOL!)

The Tonys were awesome last night. Any show that includes NPH and Hugh Jackman waltzing, Broadway-related raps, enough "offensive" material there are people up in arms (all the pro-LGBT messages, Book of Mormon, Eve Ensler saying vagina 8 times in 60 seconds), and so many Spiderman jokes that people got wasted really, really quickly, certainly has my stamp of approval. Oh, and the batshit crazy winners for actor in a play.

And sometimes you just need some good old traditional musicals to appease the matinee ladies who were less-than-enthusiastic about stuff like BoM and Scottsboro Boys. Plus, it really was a stellar production of Anything Goes. (Sorry, I know you don't need people disagreeing with you on here, but I worked on it! *shutsup*)

The show was AWESOME! I thought the rap at the end was outstanding, as well. And how awkward does Spiderman look? I had to leave the room during their performance. UGH, no me gusta.

And honey pie, if you WORKED on that show, then apologies all around! I'm just... hmm. I've done theater since I was teeny (three) and quit when it just felt like a retread of the same old same old. There seemed to be less chances taken, less fresh ideas coming in, and I just got weary of revivals of some of the more over-done productions. (I will literally stab myself in the face if ever forced to sit through Our Town or Oklahoma again. In the face.)

BUT. The dance number was awesome for Anything Goes, I just have that whole "singing in the sinuses" aversion, and she's a sinus singer. BUT THE DANCING WAS GREAT.

(And I know what you mean about appeasing the old ladies with their traditional musicals - ugh, CHicago. I'm over Chicago, too - because they're the ones that come REGULARLY and pay full price. I get it. But I have FEELINGS. Lol.)

It is! i'm sitting in a coffee house writing while #2 is at tennis and The Boy is at golf. Em wasn't able to get in to her camp until next week, so she's not missing out on anything, fortunately.

MMMM, MAGIC BURGERS AND FRIES! Om nom! ;)

Congrats to Parker/Stone

As a DC based Bron-Bron hater, congrats to the Mavericks. I think Dirk should begin randomly guesting all over your favorite TV shows as a reward.

Game of Thrones is excellent.

I mean, I was watching the Mavs with my dad back when they were an expansion team! Dallas is overcome with joy, as is expected. Dirk is an outstanding guy as well as player. Can't say the same about Kidd, but he is a solid player (he used to be unbelievable, but he still gets the job done.)

GoT is fan-freaking-tastic.

I am still boggling at the fact that it exists a Book of Mormon musical...

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.
