And so.

This morning I was all set to try and grab one of the Meet & Greet passes for the Michael Nesmith show here, and I was there right on time, and had the site all up, and it kept having problems. I couldn't get through. Then Videoranch sent out an email saying the technical glitches were taken care of. So I tried again. I was trying to get ONE pass. I got a message saying "only 4 passes were available" for my location. Okay, I only want one. I tried again. Got the same message. Tried again. Same message. Waited, fumed, tried again -- and this time it said "only 3 available." WTF?!?!?!? I tweeted them, I tried again. Still 3 available. Again. Again. Again.

Then "sorry, sold out."

So... I let it go. Okay, damn it. Okay. It's not to be.

I watched the last few episodes of Broadchurch. Good. Gripping. Getting very intense. This is the best work I've seen Tennant do since he was the Doctor.

Then I eagerly started the final episode of Under the Dome. OMG, great! Getting better! Greater!!! And... it stopped. It didn't end, It. Just. Stopped. WHAT THE FUCK. Another one of those idiotic, stupid, freakin' conclusionless "conclusions" that seem to be so freakin' popular. I wasn't expecting a happy ending, it's Stephen King, after all -- but I expected AN ENDING.

Topping the whole M&G fiasco, it's made me VERY grumpy today.

So I went and bought some more yarn I didn't need. :P

Okay, so which is it? "Voyager has left the galaxy!" or not?

I am making BBQ sauce from scratch for my pulled pork, anyway.

I'm so sorry you didn't get tickets to see Michael. D:

Well, I still get to see the SHOW, I just don't get one of the Meet & Greets. I've been waiting for them to come available (been on the waiting list) since the tour was announced, but somehow it just was not to be.

Oh, well. :P

I will pout along with you, as I hoped to live through you vicariously.

sorry about those tickets. I know you were looking forward to that.

I need to get back up to date on Broadchurch. I've let it sit on recording since school started.

Under the Dome will be back next summer I guess so we have to wait

Well, at least I get to see the show. I can live (I guess) without the Meet & Greet.

It's been quite good. I really like the acting. Low-key, certainly -- but very REAL (which, I suppose, goes along with "low key").

Oh, really? I thought it was a mini-series. I guess it's just a cliffhanger, then, and not a conclusion. I feel somewhat better, then.

well at least you get to go to the show

I've been enjoying it. I think his acting is amazing even if I want to kick him in the ass half the time.

Yeah I'm pretty sure it will be back

It's by far and away his best acting, I think, of all the work of his I've seen. Yeah, sometimes I wanna kick his butt, but mostly I feel for him -- he becomes a great deal more sympathetic as the show continues. When you catch up maybe you'll see. :)

that is good to know. He was taking steps toward it the last eppy I saw (him going to dinner with the female detective...I can't remember anyone's name in this for some reason)

Sorry about the passes! The curse of Internet bidding.

Very tasty BBQ!
