Don't you know a man being rich is like a girl being pretty?

Today is the last day to sign up for tenifriends, the PoT friendship fic fest. I can't participate since I'm modding, but it might be good motivation for me to get back to a couple of gen WIPs.

I too was visited by the anonymous jellybean fairy. Thank you, mystery gifter! And thank you, Genie, for the ecard! I completely forgot about Easter and so I have no Peeps-related fanfic or whatnot to post. So sad.

Yesterday, I saw Grindhouse and it was very, very fun. I think I liked Tarantino's movie slightly better, but they were both a hoot. During Planet Terror I was transfixed by the hotness of Freddy Rodríguez and then again in Death Proof by Rosario Dawson and Tracie Thoms. The fake trailers before the movies were possibly even better than the movies. One of them, Machete starring Danny Trejo, I wished were for a real movie. And lo! at the IMDb: an entry for a direct to video release. I can only hope it's true.

I'm auditioning some new mystery authors. I love murder mysteries -- they're so relaxing -- and I've exhausted Christie, Marsh, and Sayers. I gave Margery Allingham a try, but while her books were enjoyable, they were more adventures than mysteries. So I went to the library and got some Dorothy Cannell, M. C. Beaton, and Simon Brett. I prefer cozies and I don't want to get too emotionally attached to the characters, except for the recurring sleuth. I sometimes read Ruth Rendell, but she makes me care about people too much so I can't read too many in a row.

Speaking of Sayers, I was re-reading Mike and Psmith the other day and thinking that Psmith and Wimsey are very much alike, almost the same character, just tweaked to fit into their respective genres. They even both have monocles. Of the two, I much prefer Psmith.

This week's Doctor Who is downloading and even more exciting: the new season of Trailer Park Boys starts tomorrow!!! I am so curious to see what's going to happen with Lahey and Randy and Barb.

And that's pretty much all of my fabulous life for now.
