I managed to get through all the Easter services without a problem. Felt pretty good about it, actually- as a group, we servers seem to be much happier and relaxed group after what was a crappy start to the year.

I watched the David Tennant Hamlet on Easter Sunday and....didn't like it as much as the Kenneth Branagh production. I think it lost out on the setting- I enjoyed that Branagh's interpretation was quite sumptuous in terms of the setting and the costumes (and maybe even the cast, considering the stars he cast to play the bit parts), this one was a touch more spartan and as a friend told me this afternoon, looked more like a stage production. That said, David Tennant and Patrick Stewart gave great performances (as was the actor playing Polonius, whose name escapes me right now), and as we all know Tennant plays crazed characters very well. Looking forward more to seeing what he does as Benedick, a more acerbic and comedic part (please, please give us a televised version of this!).

Tired and sniffly as a consequence of spring-cleaning my room this afternoon. My room seems to be ripe territory for dust bunnies even when I clean it regularly. :/ I tuned in very briefly to the CNN coverage on the royal wedding last night and saw footage of the most ridiculous parade of hats I've ever seen (I blame Lady Gaga- everyone thinks they can pull off edgy and avant garde designs now, ugh). Kate- no, sorry, Catherine looked beautiful and the dress was lovely, though I liked the maid of honour's dress much more. And that's about it, considering my political leanings- I'd like to see Australia become a republic within my lifetime, though that seems to be increasingly unlikely...

Really though, the big event of this long weekend is Doctor Who.



The Lis Sladen memoriam scene at the beginning of the episode made me :(. I hope that the Brig gets a tribute too though.

Hard to judge this episode, partly because it's part one and partly because I had no idea what was going on. Ending was a total mindfuck- my best (read: stupid) guess is that Amy has a connection to the child in the astronaut suit- maybe it's her unborn baby? Then again, I'm not sure I even believe that Amy is pregnant. Just don't see it happening, it's some sort of red herring.

IDK, but it's good to have the show back. Lovedlovedloved the opening scene with Eleven and the portrait and his appearance in the Laurel and Hardy film. Enjoyed the cheeky Graduate reference. Is Amy's opening monologue is going to be a permanent part of the opening credits now? Not sure what to make of that. *shrug*



Time for another anti-histamine and bed, I think.

Current Mood: blah blah
Current Music: Faithless- Insomnia

Day of the Moon is a total mindfuck, too, but at least it answers most of the questions part 1 asked. God, but I hate cliffhangers. I love them, because yay more story continuing goodness, but my God waiting a week is NOT FUN AT ALL.
