Weekend go *whoosh*

Die Flederflöte rehearsals and preparations continue apace. It's shaping up to be a really fun show, so if you're in the area, or will be the weekend of May 1-3, do consider checking it out. Narration is all written, barring a tweak here and there, and I'm, erm, 90% memorized. Now I just have to keep track of what time I have to be at a given rehearsal, where it's being held, who I'm supposed to be when I get there, and whether any of those have changed since the last time I looked...

Friday's lack of Dollhouse took me by surprise. I managed to completely miss that they were skipping a week in favor of a Prison Break doubleheader (bleh), and thus killed about 45 minutes with a chunk of Annie (yay, Ann Reinking, and whatever became of Aileen Quinn anyway?) on one of the local stations before discovering that it had been unnecessary. (My intentions of doing something other than watch TV were thwarted by something I had eaten pointedly disagreeing with me. Probably the crab cake from lunch. But hey, I enjoyed it at the time, plus, dude, Joe's Seafood House on an attorney's dime. Actually, BigBossLady says a bunch of people at the conference were sick Friday night and Saturday, but the only thing I ate at the hotel was a bagel, so who knows.)

So the plan changed to Let The Right One In, which was interesting enough to warrant having been put at the top of Netflix queue, but not as all-that-and-a-packet-of-pop-rocks as I was hoping for, given the reception when it came out. I'm tempted to think it benefited from timing, since I recall more than one review holding it up as a sort of anti-Twilight. Still, the kids, particularly Lina Leandersson, are worth the massive nationwide talent search they apparently had, and it has its memorable moments. I'm also intrigued by something the director said in the behind-the-scenes featurette about Sweden being "half behind the Iron Curtain" in 1982, when the film is set, and exactly what that means. Since I know sod-all about Sweden in general.

Yesterday afternoon's rehearsal ran over, which necessitated a very quick change and whooshing over to Villa Verone. At which there was the pleasure of amilyn's and iingaartist's company, so yay!

Then I went home and there was In Plain Sight on my TV, so more yay! I think I may officially have a non-SF/F favorite show at this point, which is really quite weird. But, Mary! And Marshall. And even Mom and Brandy were kind of awesome. No Raf, for which I am sad, since I read a while back that he was supposed to be bumped up to regular this season. (Also, I caught the tail end of the first-season marathon on Saturday, and thus had just been grinning all over again at the bear and the Biscuit and "I don't have a bike." So there was acute Raf missage.)

But, Mary! On my TV! :: hearts her :: :: thwaps her for the stubborn re: the house :: :: hearts her some more ::

I really mised Dollhouse on Friday. I was screaming at the TV the other week when they were previewing the next epsisode and said it'd be in on two weeks. :(

So. Much. Glee. Seriously, I was not even a little bit interested in the show from the promos. Luckily brainiacfive gave it a whirl and talked me into doing likewise.

I'm having cognitive dissonance that something I love is an honest-to-goodness mainstream hit.

Hah. The earliest promos had me giggling, because they were over the top Mary's Abrasive Personality. And then the second set were all touchy-feelie. I still gave it a try, because she had a gun and might be snarky, and--

voila. She was!

I love that it's a hit. (Leverage was, too, which makes me just as gleeful)
