Alas, Friday is finally here! This work week has been quite stressful, so I am grateful for the opportunity to veg this weekend around the comforts of home (with some Halloween candy, perhaps?)
After hearing how wonderful Downton Abbey is from many bloggers, I finally ordered the DVD last week, received it this week....and am I ever glad I ordered it. I LOVE THIS SERIES! Maggie Smith is absolutely hilarious, her Emmy win was well deserved and I enjoyed all of the acting, sets and costumes. Wonderful show.
Last weekend, hubs and I went to see An Evening with William Shatner. Hubs is a massive Star Trek fan, as well he finds Shatner's antics and spoken word CD releases hilarious. We decided at the last minute to buy the cheap seats (3rd balcony); however upon picking up our tickets from the box office, we were offered upgraded tickets on the floor, about 5 rows back from the stage (behind all the 50 year old VIPs and the Star Trek nerds...hehehe) Hubs was so thrilled with the upgrade. Normally I put up with "everything Shatner" for Hubs' sake, but I have to admit Shatner is a hilarious storyteller and is quite entertaining. The show was similar to Behind the Actor's Studio, the host asked Shatner questions about his life and career. As amusing as most stories were, it wasn't all fun and games. Shatner told some emotional stories about his family, his second wife, his horses, facing his own mortality...very good show.
My favorite part of the show was when he talked about making people laugh and he almost failed miserably at a tribute to George Lucas...however his skit was very well-received, especially when George Lucas starting laughing, then everyone else did too: (p.s. Carrie Fisher looks horribly botoxed!!)
I nearly died laughing at this video. So funny!!
Have a good weekend!
