A place for Kay to experiment with being a blogger. (Designed for 800x600 resolution at this point... mostly because I haven't found a way to make a background

Getting back in the habit...
Well I have to admit, after spending the better part of two weeks on the road it is hard to readjust to spending most of my day at the computer! But re-adjust I shall.
I've spent a fair amount of time helping to basic maintenance and updating of PopArtsPlace.com, but hope to be getting some new reviews posted there soon as well.
Black Sash was suprisingly good last weekend, and I look forward to it airing again tomorrow night! I'm hopeful the pilot was not a one hit wonder. (I can't help but recall that Hogan's Heroes had problems getting a network to pick it up as everyone was afraid a series couldn't live up to the humor in the pilot!)

What I'm Reading...
It has been far too long since I updated that section of the site... but I thought I'd just toss a note up here on what I'm reading, partly as research for a story idea, and partly because I just found the book too interesting to pass on. :)
Written originally in 1931 this is a fabulous book about the universal signing language of indians... with translations in French in German with hopes kids could learn it as a universal language for the future. Not a bad dream!

I've been catching up on past episode of passions and I have to admit, a few of the story lines are getting old, and yet there are past bits that have fallen by the wayside that would rejuvinate them tremendously!
Luis and Sheridan are the redeeming storyline in all this, as it keeps moving forward. It gets repetitive at times, but things keep happening. The story keeps moving, even if it does seem to hit familiar ground from time to time. It is a great story of soulmates that the world seems to be conspiring to tear apart.
Ethan and Theresa are a similarly built plot, and in many ways almost as good -- except for a few simple facts. The audience knows Gwen considered not marrying Ethan when he lost all his money, she only married him to "beat Theresa" or so she said on the wedding day... though the fact that she wanted to marry him is undeniable, the timing was forced and at a time when she didn't want to marry him she went through with it anyway so she wouldn't lose. This storyline is still relatively well done, but I'd love for Gwen to get what is coming to her... and I'd love for it to turn out her child isn't Ethan's... but Theresa's is! Now that would be entertainment!
As for Liz and Eve... get over it girls! I've started fast forwarding through those scenes as even two great actresses can't overcome a repetitive script that is just hard to put up with. Sisters get mad, but they forgive, and love, no matter how made they get. It is part of being sisters! A fact this show seems to have entirely missed. They write siblings who are unwilling to try and forgive... and unwilling to continue loving... and I'd like to see even ONE family on this show have siblings that behave like actual real sisters! The closest we sometimes get is the Bennett household... and even still Kay and Jessica need help!
But that's just my daily soapbox visit on behalf of a show that has a lot of characters that could be a lot more fun.
It's not every day I run into a website that makes me want to tell the world about it... but ClubPhoto puts out great quality pics, and I wanted to let ya'll know about them. I'm happy enough with the pics I ordered over the weekend that I would consider selling through them instead of my current provider if they had a good system for it... but alas, for now they don't.

Blast from the Past...
I have to give Brendan Fraser credit for marvelling at the modern world with child like wonder, while offering proof positive that his time in the fallout shelter (which is different than a bomb shelter) wasn't wasted.
All in all a fun film, nothing remarkable or extraordinary -- but a wonderful way to spend the better part of two hours.
