The Great Pretender

Well, I've managed to come down with something, most likely an allergy attack. My sinuses are a little clogged, my throat is sore, and my voice is raspy. My best guess is it's from working in the Closet Of Doom on Thursday. The boxes in there have been there for more than a year, so I probably stirred up the dust REAL good.
So I'm taking Sudafed and Claritin, and using Afrin as needed. I'm sure I'll be okay.
Yesterday I came home from work and popped in the DVDs of The Pretender. Now that I have a DVD player in my computer, I can watch and be online at the same time. I think I went through something like nine episodes.
The show's creators have said that they have written a final TV movie that ties up the loose ends and answers the remaining questions. They just need the financing.
I hope they can do it before the primary actors die off.
So yes, I watched The Pretender instead of the Oscars.
I'm not one for awards shows. Golden Globes, Grammys, People's Choice, Oscars...yawners. I'm just not interested in watching, not even for the clothes.
Turns out I'm not the only one - I'm seeing that this year's Oscars ratings are the worst in Oscar history.
I wonder if the writer's strike soured people on the movie business.
Okay, a little bit of political stuff.
According to Frank Rich of the NY Times and Andrew Sullivan in TheAtlantic.com (not to mention Mark Steyn), Hillary has screwed up so badly it's all over but the surrender for her.
They make compelling cases. But if she can convince/con/bribe the superdelegates, she may yet get the nomination.
Okay, time to get on with it.
Be seeing you.
