Obsession Tuesday

Y'all. I am just brimming with excitement for the first time since January 15. Hollywood Week starts tonight. I wonder who'll be the first to cry? I wonder who'll blow the competition away? I wonder who'll start and with promise and then fizzle? I'm bouncing in my seat just thinking about it! I'm telling y'all right now--I like Amanda Overmeyer (Biker Nurse) and I like David Cook (the rocker dude with the pinkish hair). Well, with that out of the way, let's get out our obsessions for the week, shall we?

Buffy the Vampire Slayer comic #11. Richie and the kids ordered the subscription for Mother's Day 2007. It's the gift that keeps on giving, because I get a new one every month. It's called Season 8 because it's being run by Buffy creator Joss Whedon. Reading it is exactly like watching the television series. If you were a Buffy fan before, I highly recommend revisiting our Sunnydale friends.

Across the Universe. Long story short? A movie musical set in the 1960s comprised entirely of Beatles music. Watching the movie, I went from breathless to giddy to tearful from one scene to the next. When Jim Sturgess (who plays "Jude") sings "Revolution" to Lucy (Evan Rachel Wood), I think I jumped up and cheered. Also? Freaking Bono has a part in this movie and he sings "I Am The Walrus" and "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds". I have to recommend this to my hardcore Beatles fans, because it can be a little...psychedelic and mind-bending in parts. Naturally, I now own the soundtrack so that I can introduce Cathryn to The Beatles, because I don't want her to have to wait until she's teenager to discover them the way I did. We should want better for our children.

Pomegranate juice. Pomegranate juice everything: tea, vitamin water, martinis...you name it. Have you had it yet? Not too sweet, not bitter, just fresh tasting. Yum, yum, yum.

Organizing everything. Just last night, I was on the internet for three or four hours, looking at the different ways you can organize and decorate smalls bathrooms and oddly-shaped closets. *gasp* Could it be that maturity and adulthood have come upon me at last? Could I have been bitten by the grown-up bug?
