May the Fourth


I suppose "Down Days" would be the more accurate title for this, but I am trying to be positive even if it's not what I really feel on a day to day basis. Which, as you might guess, is not very positive at all. I don't really know what's causing it, but I've been on a very strong down for at least a week, probably a bit longer. It's making me really, really tired but I'm too warm to nap for long and the weather getting better is not helping that. It's also made me get out of the habit of trying to do 10 minutes on the exercise bike each day because I simply don't have the energy to do it.

Brother Boy's birthday is on Thursday, and I have his gift in. Not sure if we'll go out or not on the day. At the moment, we're planning to, but Brother Boy has a strong history of changing his mind at the last minute, which is not always great. If he does want to stay in, I guess that's fine. I mean, it's his birthday, I can't be telling him what to do. I hope he likes what I've got him, he's been asking for this for a while so... yeah. Mind you, again with the mind changing thing. He doesn't mean to annoy anyone with it, it's just a thing he does. Not sure if we're getting him a cake or not. He likes really chocolate-y things, and I do not do so well with chocolate. Will work something out.

Think that's all I can think of at the moment. Hopefully I'll have more stuff to talk about later.

A Trip to the Theatre


Yesterday I finally got to see a live production of The Addams Family Musical and it was so much fun! Carrie Hope Fletcher was playing Wednesday, and dear gods, that girl has an amazing voice. Here's a video she did with Andrew Lippa of her performing 'Pulled'. In comparison with the Broadway run, Wednesday kept her braids, and Lucas is a bit more... I want to say jock-like than the adorable nerd who wore a Gryffindor tie to meet his girlfriend's parents. It's not bad, I just personally prefer nerd!Lucas. The whole cast was amazing though, and I really wish I had been able to stage door. Maybe when it comes to Glasgow, if I get a ticket for that run of the tour.

I've also been checking out Emerald City, NBC's newest adaptation of the Oz stories. I have to say that I really like it. It's once again a darker look on the stories, but in a rare turn? The Tip/Ozma story is one of the lead ones, and it's played quite seriously. Actually, it's played as a trans story and I am hard pressed to think of one of them in any other fantasy based show at the moment. Tip is my favourite character, with Jack and West tied for second place. I like Dorothy, but I feel like a lot of her story is quite predictable, if only because her story has been played out so many times in other versions. I'm not sure if there's going to be a second season, but I hope there is. My main hope for it is Tip and Jack regaining their friendship - they both seem to miss the other.

As for life in general... Eh, not much has been happening. I still need to make the sales posts, I just seem the lack the energy to do... well, anything as of late. Need to see about fixing that.

And now? Now I am going to go for a nap. Because I am tired.
