I have been *dying* to see Dreamgirls
so tonight we watched it before it slipped out of our local theatre. I honestly despised most of the movie and could barely WAIT for it to be over because I cannot stand musicals.
You're probably wondering why in the world I wanted to see it so much then; how about because I totally didn't realize it was a musical? It's true . . . totally true. I didn't read anything about it so I didn't know it was based on a show nor did I stop to consider after seeing the preview that it might be a musical. Of course I knew there would be music and performances in it, just not that they'd be using songs as dialogue. All I saw in the preview was BEYONCE. That's it. She's the whole reason I wanted to see it so much. Since then of course I've noticed headlines about this Jennifer Hudson chick stealing the show and awards being won, blah blah blah. But I didn't care to read the whole story on it because I just wanted to see/hear BEYONCE.
Painful as it was to endure the entire long-ass movie, it was actually worth it to hear THREE of the songs. Actually, it would have been worth it for just that one heart-wrenching "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going" gut-grinding performance of Jennifer Hudson's. Okay, and it was also splendid seeing Beyonce's tits and ass presented in different garments; I was particularly fond of seeing her boobs in those sling-like contraptions at the end.
FYI: I haven't responded to any emails in a good long while unless they were about technical problems, but I'm going to try to get a jump on those tomorrow. Realistically I doubt I'll be able to properly respond to more than a handful of them, though, since the most pressing ones require action of some kind or another.
Cams: I'm ready to strangle, kill, and mutilate the idiots who foisted substandard resource-sucking spycam software upon us months ago and haven't bothered to fix any of the problems in spite of my repeated nagging. Apparently today all but one of our cams were down and I had no idea because all of the thumbnail previews were still up and because the thumbnails don't refresh/show an accurate preview I wouldn't have known unless I clicked on them that they were actually not broadcasting. PERFECT. Anyway, thank you to Vette for emailing me to let me know about the problem.
Chat: I am going to schedule chat sessions for Tuesday evening, Wednesday morning, and Thursday afternoon plus my shows will be back to normal on Friday and Saturday. As soon as we get back from a walk I'll post the times on the spycam site's schedule.
