Ok bit of a "ratatouille" post today as I've got lots to post about but none of it really relates so here goes.
First, the new Bollywood dance class is both a damn good workout and a whole lot of fun. It's also incredibly challenging in ways I hadn't expected. You'd think my Middle Eastern dance experience would come in handy, but I find it's more of a hinderance than a help, the footwork and arms/hands are so fundamentally different that I start to move in a certain way out of habit and have to think about it and self-correct. I'm really enjoying it, and already adore the teacher who, unsurprisingly, is friends with Alyne.
Also she's told us she's going to invite us to her place and teach us how to cook an Indian feast which we'll then enjoy together. How cool is that?
Caught up on BSG and I have to say this week's episode was a hot mess. I'm becoming increasingly happier that there are only a few episodes left. I'm just ready for it to be over at this point.
I've also started watching a new animated series, "Wolverine and the X-Men" which is an astonishingly mature take on the series and a much more fitting addition to the genre then was the third actual film. It is a series made for the Marvel geek as everybody, and I do mean everybody, shows up at some point. The small touches, from smiling billboards of Magneto proclaiming the joys of moving to Genosha, to Wolvie referring to Nightcrawler as "the Elf", are incredibly charming. I really recommend checking this out, either on Nick or YouTube, you won't be disappointed.
Really enjoyed aelfsciene
's party on Saturday and getting to see so many folks I so rarely spend time with these days. The food was also incredibly tasty and there was a whole lot of it. I can only imagine what her fridge looked like today.
And last but not least episode 5 of Being Human, I have to admit, was a bit of a disappointment. I think it suffered from trying to do too much. The problem there is that it didn't allow the characters to actually react and experience what was happening to them...which is the biggest strength of the series. It could've been two really great episodes rather than one rather shoddy one, but even the shoddiest BH episode is still better than 99.9% of what's on tv at present.
Also got my niece's quilt started at long last, which felt really good. So yay progress!
And, um, I think that's about it for now.
