is it friday yet?

* Since my slight burning due to sitting on the patio last weekend, I have now entered the peeling phase.  EW.  And the fact that it's occurring on my forehead, not a pretty picture. 

* For those who can make it -- meet the 10 Maria finalists and the judges (i.e. John Barrowman + some other people) at the CBC building, June 17, noon.  I'm gonna try and make it.  So it'll be a 2-hour lunch, I'll work til 6.

* Where's the hot Russian ballroom dancer contestant in this season's of "So You Think You Can Dance"?  We've been blessed with Artem then Dimitry then Pasha and now no one!  It's just not right.  So far, I have no favourites and no one I dislike either.

* Went to Chinatown after work yesterday and bought some soy sauce chicken and Cantonese chow mein.  YUMMY.  And I purposely set some aside to bring for lunch today or else I would've eaten it all.

* That's all I've got.

one step closer to Cap'n Jack

EEEEEEEEE!!  Both bauersgirl  and I got tickets to the Maria show!!  I'm going to be in the same room as John Barrowman!!!!!  *flails*  I have to figure out how to sneak a camera in!  I need to get a picture with the Captain!!   We both got 2 tickets which means we have 2 extra so if anyone wants to stalk see JB do his judging thang, let me know.  The details: CBC Building, Toronto, Sun June 22, 6-8pm.  SOLOOOOOOOO!!!!  YOU HAVE TO COME DOWN!!!

Another example of my craziness:  I purchased a 5-star platinum ticket for the 3rd -- yes, three! -- NKOTB concert.  WHAT WAS I THINKING?!???!! LOL  The package comes with a seat in the first 10 rows, a meet-and-greet + photo op before the show and some other stuff.  Kinda expensive but cheaper than those greedy bastards at Creation.

Bear with me but one more NKOTB thing.  Footage of the boys making their video to "Summertime" is up and OMG THE CHEESINESS.  The all-white outfits = BSB's "I Want it that Way" circa 1994.  Donnie running on the beach with his shirt open is hot LULZ.  Oh boys.

In other news, I finished watching Avatar and I WANT THE LAST EPISODES NOW!!!!!  I should've stretched out my viewing and I did try to do that but it wasn't happening.  I watched a behind-the-scenes clip on YouTube which showed all the voice actors and the guy who voices Zuko looked so familiar to me but I couldn't place him.  Off to IMDB I go and OMG it's Rufio from "Hook"!!  Ruuuuufiiiiooooooo!!!!!  Awesome.

Obtained a copy of New York Minute and dear lord, how cute was Jared?!  SO.CUTE.  The dancing at the end!!  I did skip through a lot of the movie but of what I did see, MK & Ashley Olsen were kinda sorta not bad.  I still can't tell who is who though.

To those on my f-list that are off to the Dallas con this weekend -- I hate you all have LOTS of fun and take many many pictures of Jared for me, 'k?  And the other boys too!!

point-form posts are awe... wait for it... some

  • I've been watching How I Met Your Mother and omg what a great show! So far I'm halfway through season 2 and Neil Patrick Harris completely steals the show as the womanizing Barney. He gets the greatest lines and catchphrases. Also, this show is awesome with the continuity, like Arrested Development-level awesome.

  • So, in the last few months I've re-discovered Chad Allen, Neil Patrick Harris and Brian Austin Green. I wonder which teen idol from my youth will be the next to wow me.

  • Also started to watch download/watch Psych. I've only watched the first 2 eps but so far, so good. In other tv news, I've tried Life, New Amsterdam & The Tudors but none of them captured my interest

  • I don't even watch American Idol but I've promised my co-worker that I'll go with her to the concert when they tour. Maybe I'll start watching next week

  • Sad news -- my Dallas trip is no more =( Man, I was so looking forward to hanging out with my girls. However, it has come to my attention that they've ganged up on someone else is possibly contemplating considering attending... *cough*phetch*cough* I have a J2 photoshoot ticket... *waves bait* Also, any hopes of attending Dragon*Con and Comic Con are kaput. Guess my stalking fangirly activities for 2008 will be limited to the TIFF. It's all my brother's fault. Him and his stupid wedding!

  • Japan may also be out. It's looking to be way too expensive. So we're debating on alternatives -- China (although not Beijing cause Olympics = chaos), Korea (although one brother has already been) or one of the SE Asian countries (Thailand, Indonesia, Malayisa, Vietnam, Singapore, etc).

  • My unpopular opinion of the day. After watching some of the concert footage of John Barrowman's tour on YouTube, I found parts of his show kinda cheesy. His stage movements/"dancing" made me giggle and not in a good way. However, his voice is as gorgeous as ever and I would've gladly sat through awkward dancing to see him live. Dammit for not being in the UK!

  • Donna continues to be awesome on Doctor Who.

  • Last weekend, I purchased my first ever designer clothing -- Calvin Klein. And only because the store had plus sizes! Granted, it was one little table in the huge store but still, it took me by surprise. I never go in these type of stores as I can't wear any of the clothes but I was with my SIL. Proceeded to drop $220 on 3 tops and a pair of capris. This should be a lesson to all the other stores, we may be fat but we've also got money.

  • It's April 16th and you know what that means? Only 14 more days til tax season is OVER!!

woe is me

I'm currently at a client's and they're doing some renovations.  So between the paint fumes and the sporadic drilling, I think my head may explode.  And I won't even mention that I've been trying to balance inter-company receivables and payables for the last 2 hours and have gotten nowhere.  Unfortunately, staring at it doesn't help.

To make matters worse, I tried to watch John Barrowman's guest spot on Hotel Babylon on YouTube this morning and it kept freezing on me about 30 seconds in.  Gave up for a few minutes and tried again only to find out that the clip has been removed (which is probably why it kept freezing).  I've been denied campy John goodness!  *sad*

gets stalking shoes ready

Following in the UK's footsteps (as ever :D ), this summer, CBC will be airing our version of How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria? -- the search for who will play Maria in the upcoming production of The Sound of Music

I was planning on tuning in really just because I already have tickets to the musical so it would be kind of cool to follow the reality show and then see them perform.  But now I am so ohmygod excited because I just found out that JOHN BARROWMAN WILL BE A JUDGE!!111!!!!!!11  *massive squee*  Article here that lists John as one of the judges (scroll down).

SOLO!!!  You have to come down here and we HAVE to get tickets!!   I'm seriously gonna call the CBC tomorrow and find out the when/how/where of getting tickets to the show.

This news was posted over at barrowmanfans  and there was concern about TW S3 filming.  People were saying that filming usually doesn't start til August so it shouldn't be an issue.  Also, I highly doubt John will stay in Toronto between each show.  He'll be either jetting it back and forth between here and the UK or making trips to the US.

*gasp*  Do you think he'll be around for Pride?  That would be so awesome!  pleasepleasepleasepleaseplease

In other news, I purchased The Boondock Saints DVD from HMV today.  =)    ETA:  I'm watching the special features and the deleted scene when the brothers' mom calls?  GOLD

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm just gonna pass out from the over-squeeage.

movies: romeo & juliet

snow + boredom = picspam!

What with the neverending snow on Saturday, other than stepping outside to meet up with Mom, I spent the day cozied up inside and killed time scouring the internet for some pictures of my favourite boys.  I haven't done a picspam in a long while and I think I may have gone a bit overboard this time, lol!

Collapse )

The scary part is that I could've included so many more guys.  Maybe I'll do a part two some day.  Picspams take way too long to do.

The amount of time I've spent reading this year has been absolutely dismal.


I need more vacation time!  Next year, I'm planning on visitng the UK and that'll take at least 2 weeks.  And I would like to visit my brother in Winnipeg.  I'm thinking about driving to Winnipeg through the States and then coming back through northern Ontario, one big circle.  That'll take another 2 weeks.  1 week for next year's film festival.  So, that's 5 weeks of vacation when I'm only entitled to 3.  I guess I can always take unpaid leave.  What I really need is to win lottery.  Sigh.

It started slowly.  A mention here and there on my f-list.  Watched an interview on YouTube.  Started to watch Torchwood.  Downloaded one of his albums.  During my search for some TW icons, I came across a batch from Barrowman's appearance on the gameshow, Nevermind the Buzzcocks, and was intrigued about the various quotes.  I found the episode and Oh My Gawd, I don't think I've laughed so much.

"Talk to the hand, cause the wrist is pissed."   BRILLIANT!!  I laughed for a good 5 minutes.  Followed by the host's "I've been out-gayed by Barrowman!"  The whole episode was hilarious.

I wouldn't call Barrowman gorgeous persay, more adorable.  He's definitely awesome.  =)


I'm watching a Gilmore Girls re-run right now.  Hey, it's Seth Cohen and Sam Winchester and Peter Petrelli all in 1 ep!!


I hate rapidshare and their stupid download limits.  That is all.


ETA:  How could I have forgotten this news?  Guess who's been added to the S3 cast of Dante's Cove?  Reichen Lehmkul!!  Bwah ha ha!  Can he even act?  Oh right, this is DC, acting is not essential.  He is pretty so he'll fit right in.
