My mom and I went to see 'Nevermore: The Imaginary Life And Mysterious Death Of Edgar Allan Poe' last Wednesday.

I was super excited; it was getting rave reviews, the poster looked appropriately creepy, I can never think of a third point, etc.
I was really disappointed.
I'll start with the good; the guy who played Edgar was fantastic, and I felt that he was the best singer.
That's all the good news.
I don't know what play these critics were seeing; both my mom and I found it juvenile.
It attempted to be a Rocky Horror Pictureshow-esque comedy, but it tried too hard to be creepy and not campy, like it should have been.
It wasn't the actors faults, save one, it was just the material; the 'save one' actress, the chick who played Rosalie, was one of the worst over actors I've ever seen. She reminded me so much of the girls I used to do drama with who's lives were 'the theater', and every single breathy word was completely contrived as their faces went crazy with 'emotion'.
The audience seemed to love it though, or at least the people who laughed were very loud.

Because the play was based on Edgar Allen Poe's life, I went with Film Noir lipstick by MAC, since I'd never worn it out.
I was going to wear it to work once, but I think dark brown lipstick may be too much for an NC15 to wear in the day time.

I also wore my new Alexis Bittar ring and some fifty cent earrings I bought at a sewing shop that have seemed to have not fallen apart, unlike their fallen comrades that I purchased the same day.
They were literally fifty cents though, so only a couple wears were to be expected.

The Olympics. Thoughts?
I had to do a delivery between stores at work the other day, so basically I was just supposed to walk around downtown Vancouver and pick up what needed to be picked up. I thought it would take me at most fifteen minutes, since I know the quickest routes and it's not very far.
I was wrong.
It was a nice day so every tourist decided to be on Robson and Granville. It took me double the time.
Then, coming home, the new seabus could barely fit everybody.
Vancouver, you can't tell the tourists to take transit and then not fit them. It doesn't work that way.
Anyway, we'll see how these nest few weeks go.
