Birthday Boy (Wonder)

Thursday, March 31st, 2011

Yup, it’s Boy Wonder’s birthday again!  Join me in wishing him a very happy one! Incidentally, this year I have been placed in charge of organizing, sorting, and scanning the family photos we have been finding at the In-Laws’ house.  A decision which everyone may well soon come to regret.  Awwwww.  Love you, baby. Are […]

Chronic obsessive behaviour

Wednesday, March 30th, 2011

To many of you this isn’t news, but some of you may not know how long I’ve been in the Obsessive Fangirl business.  The answer:  A Long-Assed Time. In 1995 I opened a Jeremy Irons fansite after being frustrated by the lack of J.I. pictures available on the internet.  “I have more pictures than this!” […]

In the time since my Mother in Law’s death, the family has been trying to clean out Boy Wonder’s parents’ house.   MiL was a hoarder.  Not as bad as some that you’d see on “reality tv,” but bad enough that it’s been an arduous process, and I honestly expect it to go on all summer […]

TV Casualty: Winter IS Coming

Thursday, March 17th, 2011

The best (?) for last?  If not the best, then the most-anticipated, most scrutinized, most likely to either be mind-boggling or fail spectacularly. Beginning April 17 on HBO, an adaptation of A Game of Thrones, first novel in the continuing A Song of Ice & Fire fantasy book series.  (Official HBO site.) If you are […]

TV Casualty: It’s Only a Model

Wednesday, March 16th, 2011

Next on the calendar for the couch potato month of April is Starz’s 10-episode take on the King Arthur tale, Camelot.  Beginning April 1. (Official site.) Starz was generous with this one.  They had the first episode available for online viewing at the end of Feb., so I watched it. My verdict: Very pleasantly surprised. […]

TV Casualty: Common Frump

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

I think I’ll just go through these chronologically. First on my list of spring Must See TV is Mildred Pierce, on HBO.  (Official site.) Mildred will be a 5-part miniseries running Sunday nights beginning March 27th.  Words can’t do justice to how excited I am about this one.  It’s triggering ALL of my buttons:  film […]

TV Casualty Week

Monday, March 14th, 2011

Something very strange is going on… I want to watch TV. Not “network” TV, mind you.  But there are a bunch of cable series coming up this spring that I cannot WAIT to see!  The premium cable networks getting involved in TV and producing short seasons of series along the British telly model has been […]

Spot the Looney

Sunday, March 13th, 2011

You guys remember way back when I was an extra on the Russell flick Next 3 Days, and I walked across streets all day and stood 3 FEET away from the man himself?  Good, cause I don’t wanna rehash all that.  Then I was a Bad Fangirl in November and didn’t get out to see […]

Update update

Friday, March 11th, 2011

Just checking in to say we’re still alive. Things are very, very crazy dealing with MiL’s finances and trying to get those things all squared away to make things easier FiL (and everyone else.)  Two of my sisters-in-law have been working like crazy getting the most important parts of the house cleaned out, and doing […]

Passings

Saturday, March 5th, 2011

For anyone who didn’t hear it through email, FB, or the grapevine, Boy Wonder’s mom died on Feb.28. It was completely unexpected and sudden.  We are all in shock, but coping thanks to the support of great friends.  Thank you all. She was the anchor of the family, and the conduit for family news, gossip, […]
