It's been a while since I last updated this. Whoops.

Let's start with the musicals: since I last updated, I've seen Legally Blonde, Love Never Dies and Wicked. All three are bloody amazing.

Legally Blonde was full of understudies, as Sheridan had injured her back doing the Bend and Snap a night or two before, but it was still amazing. Caroline Keiff is fantastic in it, as per usual, and Duncan was okay. It was rather lovely to see Alex Gaumond again, as he'd played Galileo when we saw the WWRY tour. Amazing man.

Love Never Dies was amazing. The set design is beautiful, the songs and staging have been neatened up since the concept album... Sierra made me cry, amazing woman, and I think Summer does an amazing job of conveying Meg's slipping grasp on sanity.

Bathing Beauty comes with a surprise in the form of her ending up topless, though. You've been warned... even if I rather liked it. :3

And Wicked... Rachel and Louise are fantastic. Cassandra Compton is a lovely new Nessa (who wore stripes at Stage Door!) and it's lovely to see George as Boq at long last. :3

Tonight, we're going to see Spamalot! I'm looking forward to that.

In other news:
  • I'm having a lot of physiotherapy recently.
  • My girlfriend and I finally came out. It's all good, really.
  • I have tickets for Amy Macdonald, in Manchester, on my birthday. :D Exciting.
  • I'm a dorkface.

    That's about it. Toodles. ^^

    My girlfriend is now into Doctor Who, despite being a dirty American - she's been watching the new series as it airs, but only since Victory of the Daleks. I'm pretty happy with this. :3

    She's loved it so far, and unlike me, she finds the Weeping Angels scary. I've promised to show her Blink when I get the chance, amongst other episodes.

    I've just got to hope I can get her to like the older stuff...

    (Why is there an 'Amy Pond is brilliant' tag on this post? Because she helped her get into the show, duh.)

    On another note, I'm currently playing through Mass Effect. Dear God, I love it... and I already have the second one lined up for playing. :3 I love Bioware RPGs... I also have Batman: Arkham Asylum, which is interesting.

    It has Harley Quinn and the Mark Hamill Joker. What more could I want?

    Also, also! Perfect Dark and Banjo-Tooie were snagged from the XBLA, alongside the Secret of Monkey Island. God, I'm a happy gamer at the moment. \o/ Might get Banjo-Kazooie once I've finished Tooie... and yes, I'm working backwards there.
