So I landed last week! Yaaaay! It’s so great to finally be done. We landed at Niagara and we had a really good time. I’ve been working for the past week. It feels SO good to be back at work. It’s a hard job, very tiring, but it’s been a really good week.
We went to see Einaudi last night! He was AMAZING. There were some issues with the sound at first, at least, to my ears. The levels were all wrong, but they sorted them out. His ensemble is so talented. If he’s doing a show near you and there are tickets left, I couldn’t recommend it more highly. He’s just such a joy to watch. He so clearly loves what he’s doing… It’s infectious, and the music is beautiful.
The second half kind of sucked for me. We were sat behind some people with absolutely no awareness of the people around them. They were checking their phones, talking, and then they just switched seats and this 6ft guy sat down right in front of me and I couldn’t see a thing. I was gutted. Truly, truly gutted. I asked them to move for the encore and they did, so I don’t think they were actually rude, just completely unaware. I’m glad that I did get to see the encore. There was another guy on his phone and I asked him to put it away during the intermission and the poor guy just had no idea how bright the light was and how distracting it was. So again, not rude, just unaware. I felt like a bit of a dick for telling people off the whole night, but they were ruining it for me.
Aside from that, it was brilliant. We had a great time.
Since I last posted here I’ve become a total Whovian. I haven’t started season 7 yet but I’ll be on it soon. In the meantime, I’m watching Torchwood. I’m not sure how much I like it yet. It’s like, so super British, even more so than Dr. Who. I think the show had a smaller budget.
Who is my favourite Doctor? I DON’T KNOW! I can’t pick. I even liked Eccleston who, according to my Facebook feed, is the least popular new Doctor.
I loved Tennant and when Smith came I was all prepared to hate him. When they changed the theme to that AWFUL theme I was prepared to hate him more. When they changed the interior of the TARDIS to that weird super lame interior with bubble windows that looks like it was designed by a preteen girl, the stakes were raised again. His fate was sealed when the light on his sonic screwdriver turned green. It was too much to handle. Too many changes all at once. But then Smith was brilliant. I couldn’t hate him. I loved him within 10 minutes. The writing was brilliant and he carried the whole thing so well. I think he’s doing a great job.
I can’t speak to the show as it is currently because I haven’t started season 7 yet but I’ll be on it next week sometime. Maybe even this weekend because it’s a long weekend (yay!).
I also watched all of the Community episodes on Netflix. I didn’t like it when I first saw it a few years ago, but it’s totally hilarious. I’ve seen a lot of shows like that – that I hated at first. The one that really stands out to me is King of the Hill. I grew up with that show, and I couldn’t bear it. I think I was just too young to get the jokes. I thought it was super depressing. Then I started it again a few years ago and it’s hilarious.
Next on the list is Orphan Black. I caught a bit of an episode the other day and I’m intrigued so I’m going to check it out.
Anyway, Happy May 24 everyone!
