A Quick Programming Note

Dear No One in Particular,

Posting has been nonexistent, and I feel terrible about it. I know I promised that I would be updating with more frequency, but last week was my Spring Break and oddly enough, was one of the worst Spring Break's I've ever had. I'm not about to go into it (this blog has enough navel-gazing as it is); it was a bad week, and it's in the past.

I would like this to be more than just a quick update, but apparently, I have a midterm tomorrow? My professor and his army of T.A.s decided that they didn't need to actually update the syllabus, nor let the students know via mass email, so I'm swamped with test prep right now. I promise I'll be back by week's end.

Before I sign off, I have one question: anyone else watching "Any Dream Will Do"? It's fantastic: dozens of (slightly) fey Brits with panty-dropping accents competing to follow in the illustrious footsteps of Donny Osmond? Solid gold shit, maestro. The show is hosted by Graham Norton, who can be deliciously catty, and the soundtrack is fantastic. They (seemingly) unironically play Eminem and Queen, and whenever Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber appears, they play the Phantom's theme. It's totally worth the cable bill.

Oh, no, I'm sorry your spring break sucked. Yay for optimism, though!

I haven't seen that show! Sounds like I need to!

@Diana: If you end up watching it, let me know! I love having someone to gossip with while watching epically trashy television.

@Vanessa: Summer is soon = graduation is soon. I think I may be a bit queasy. ;)

@saturdayjane: If you like musical theatre, it's likely you'll enjoy this show. I saw the American version of it -- the one about Grease -- like, 2 years ago now? And I still think about how much I love it.

I loved Donny Osmond's recording of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat - my best friend and I would play the whole soundtrack when we were kids, and try to perform the ENTIRE show. We were nerds. But it was fun! :)
