- What is the matter with Billy Bush's hair? Subtopic: What is the matter with Billy Bush? Discuss.

- I've decided rather at the last minute to go up to Utah for Sundance this weekend. But really I'm going to hang out with mikijean and tlbelle. There will be knitting, watching of BBC/ITV period dramas, and possibly some actual, you know, going to festival films. Possibly.

- Speaking of period dramas, Persuasion was a bit of a disappointment last night. Not that I didn't love seeing Tony Head. And Larry Nightingale! But the direction was crap (why so much running? why?) and I disliked Sally Hawkins' Anne Elliot even more than Amanda Root's Anne Elliot. Why must everyone play her as such a wet dishrag? She's just not meant to be that much of a drip. At least Rupert Penry-Jones was a Captain Wentworth I could get behind for once. Mmmmmdreamy. Unlike Ciaran "Big Head! Big Head! Big Head!" Hinds. And now mcsister is probably throwing things at me.

- Mr. Sus got us Dance Dance Revolution for the Wii. It's... actually pretty fun, even if I do feel like an idiot playing it. Also, I totally suck.

- I threw my back out again last weekend. Fortunately, after a few days of ice packs and easing back into regular exercise (including some Dance Dance Revolution) it's almost completely better again.

- Unfortunately, last night I stubbed the crap out of my pinky toe on Mr. Sus' medicine ball. And now it's all purple and swollen and I can't wear shoes. No more Dance Dance Revolution for me. /whine

- We are sort of toying with the idea of taking a family trip to London later in the year. It is entirely possible that said trip may be coordinated in such a way as to allow us to catch David Tennant's Hamlet with the RSC. The question is whether to go ahead and make plans for a side trip out to Stratford-upon-Avon, or whether to wait, with the hope that the production will transfer to London, which might be less complicated to plan, but might be harder to acquire tickets to. Does anyone have any wisdom or advice to offer?

- And, last but not least, looky: http://whywewriteseries.wordpress.com/2008/01/12/why-we-write-number-16-reader-submitted-essay/
