Whoo hooo! Today's the day I get to order the new BBC series about Robin Hood, starring the intensely seductive Richard Armitage. Oh, baby, the excitement! And yes, I've already ordered it, cost and wacky costumes be damned!
Because I know that part of me is going to be cringing at the anachronisms. Pleather? Oh, please!
On the other hand, Richard Armitage! As Sir Guy! Who sees Marian as his redemption! I've said it before, I'll say it again: Marian, you lucky girl! Forget that callow youth Robin. Take the man! The intensely passionate man!!
Okay, must calm down. Must calm down... (Although when the DVD arrives? I shall be beyond calming.)
I also ordered A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. If you haven't seen this and want a laugh? Rent this. It's hilarious -- I remember laughing and laughing the first time I saw this. I happened upon it on TV the other day and was grinning and singing along and knew I had to have it. The character names alone are a hoot: Senex is the old guy, Miles Gloriosus the military captain, the hero is...Hero. Zero Mostel, Phil Silvers, Jack Gilford (as the slave Hysterium)...truly a wonderful, funny film -- and a bargoon at $12.98.
And as the Long Wait continues: I've figured out something I can do that's not exactly writing, but keeping the wheels greased, so to speak. I'm creating more webpages about writing based on my workshops. This week, I added A Few Words About Pacing.
I just realized I've now got something else to wait for -- my Amazon order!
