vl: ollian bathtub

productive weekend ftw!

* Inspired by dendritejungle's post, I visited the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) this weekend. The AGO has been under renovations and recently re-opened with new architecture by Frank Gehry. Collapse )

* Finally got around to watching Latter Days and Shelter. OMG SO MUCH LOVE. Yay for movies with a happy ending. Anyone have the soundtracks?

* Watched the first 2 epsiodes of Leverage. Loved it. The chemistry between the team was great. And yay for Christian Kane being on my screen again! His voice has gotten so gravelly. Gotta talk about the hair though. I don't mind long hair on him but it's pretty ridiculous right now. It needs to be tamed. The show also got me nostalgic for some good ol' Lindsey fun so I watched the "Dead End" episode from Angel S2 aka Lindsey Has an Evil Hand and Sings episode. So good.

* The nostalgic feeling led me to re-watching probably my favourite musical of all time, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. I discovered this musical on television when I was in my early teens and have just loved it ever since. My favourite scene has to be the Duelling Dance at the Barn Raising between the Pontipee brothers and the townsmen as they compete for the girls' attentions. Oh just watch it :D

Some trivia: the Brother in orange does very little dancing as he was one of the 3 non-dancers hired and the Brother in blue is Russ Tamblyn, father of Amber Tamblyn.

* I also completed my Christmas shopping. Thank heavens. I checked my credit card balance on-line today and may have had a small heart attack. Collapse )

* I actually cooked today. Like, honest-to-goodness bought ingredients and followed a receipe cooked. Turned out pretty decent. And I'm going to make brownies for dessert but that's just Pillbury brownies. Baby steps :)

* Merlin finale was good. We got Arthur/Merlin with Merlin's 'goodbye' scene and we got some canon shipping with Arthur/Gwen, yay! It's a testament to the cast that I'm shipping practically everyone with everyone!

Whew, this was one long-ass post. Have some internet cookies for reading it all the way through. But if it was tl;dr for you, that's cool too :D
