NEW WHEELS

We have a new car. We also have the higher payment and raised insurance to go with it, but we got it. I think what dealerships do is just keep you there so long you finally just get the damn thing so you can go home lol.


I'm really getting tharn about $ since, as of now, the car payment, the insurance, and our house payment, have all gone up. *facepalm*

But I do feel more secure in the new car.

And it is a pretty blue...:-)


I can't even stay awake. We didn't leave the dealership until 11PM last night! I was such a zombie today.

Before I go, though, we finished watching 13 Reasons Why and I thought it was really good. I understand there is some snootiness about those who have read the book, since the tv series is very different. However, after stuff like True Blood, and Game of Thrones, I no longer expect perfect faithfulness to the written text when something moves medias.

Also, I possibly wasn't as invested in this story as some others?

Still, I highly recommend it.

One of the reasons it is so amazing, though, is the truly fantastic soundtrack. A great, eclectic combination of old-school 80s-90s pop music and current artists, it lends amazing texture to the story.

My favorite, besides the theme song, is this one by Lord Huron



Absolutely haunting, beautiful song.

Okay, gente. I'm beat, so Ima go to sleep.

I hope to keep posting, but in case I forget, have a great weekend and wonderful bunny day

IT'S THE CUP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Congrats to the Pens, Bruins, and Rangers for winning their first games. The Hawks play tonight when I will be trying to trade in our car. Arrgh. My fingers will be crossed and I will have my phone!

May I just say I am SO SO THRILLED that Phil Kessel is in the playoffs I can't tell you. After how unappreciated he was with the Leafs and what he's persevered through personally, I am so proud of him! I should post my Phil/Bozie WIP just because. I always thought that pairing should get more love. :-)

13 Reasons Why

Okay, so it is obvious to anyone else that Tony is in love with Clay?

This show, man. I'm almost afraid to read the actual book because the series is really working for me. Considering that there are 534675367 holds on it, I have time to process.

THARN

Seriously, have you ever had so much to do you just, like, stare into space, quietly overwhelmed? I am pretty much there

I have to:
- Go to a meeting form Work Thing I Was Pressured Into Doing at 10 and I'm not sure where
- Start working on two presentation for Comicpalooza, deadline May 14th
- Figure out how I can contribute to Leadership Final project considering I will be on vacation for part of prep time (which I planned BEFORE this came up).Deadline end of June
- Try to spend rest of budget, deadline May 15th
- Book stuff for vacation. Have tix, must book Amtrak, ferry ride to Victoria, hotel, etc. Deadline end of April.

So, yeah. I'll just be over here in the corner rocking and eating my hair.

CELEBRITIES YOU DIDN'T NOW COULD SING #2

I thought I knew. I had NO IDEA.

Okay, gente. I'm off! Have a great Friday-eve and I'll catch you later!

13 REASONS WHY

+ I am am fascinated by Tony in this series. Here is a character of color (with amazing eyes) that drives a cherry red Mustang, is generally accepted as being a badass, is well-spoken, gets along with grownups, AND IS GAY. I'm not sure I've seen this in any YA novel, let alone adult fiction. Apparently the ending of the tv series and the book is different? We are really hooked and the cast just keeps turning in strong, amazing performances.


PETER GALLAGHER

+ I first saw Peter Gallagher on this gratuitous bit of fluff called SUMMER LOVERS, which I watched for the hot French Girl and Peter Gallagher's eyes (yes, I do have an eye thing). The film was set in Santorini Greece and one of the first depictions of polyamory I remember viewing on film.

I didn't actually see THE IDOLMAKER until after and was blown away by Peter Gallagher's voice! His broadway chops are showcased in this film that earned Ray Sharkey a Golden Globe and for playing rock and roll talent promoter Bob Marcucci.

Here is a young Peter Gallagher with However Dark the Night:



Now I go because I have a metric ton of work and not a lot of time to do it.

Have a good one, gente!
