Q. Where the heck have I been?

A. Sick as a dog. Don't click if you don't want to read about it.Collapse )

Oh, on Monday, I got a late birthday present from my parents -- the Phantom of the Opera movie companion book. It's all about the movie, the musical, and the original novel. Get this -- it even has the original screenplay from the movie. It's not exactly what the final script was, but it's damn close. Cool, huh?

So, while I've been sick, I've read that a couple of times, I've seen Mona Lisa Smile (good movie) and Chasing Liberty (another good movie), a few of my new DVDs (still haven't done my planned LOTR marathon), and endless hours of television.

Oh! On Thursday, I watched Regency House Party on PBS. That was so cool! Take a handful of single young men, a handful of single young women, and a handful of older women to act as their chaparones. Send them to a country estate for two months. The object -- to get the single people happily matched. Oh, and everyone has to live like folks did in the early 1800s. Perfect guilty pleasure for anyone who loves the Regency Era, Jane Austen, etc.
