I went up to bed early last night, with good intentions to be in bed with the lights out quickly. Now that it is light out past 9:00, this is getting harder and harder to do; it feels silly to let the dog out for the last time and lock down the house for the night when it’s not even fully dark.
But still, last night I forced myself upstairs shortly after nine and read another chapter of Babywise sitting in the glider in the nursery. After lollygagging around in the bathroom getting ready for bed, I decided to turn on the tv for just a few minutes. And got totally sucked into Legally the Blonde, the Search for the Next Elle Woods on MTV. I figured oh well, I’ll turn off the tv at 10:30, but noooo, it’s a full hour show. Which I watched all of.
Even though my opinion of Legally Blonde, the Musical is that it’s cheesy in the extreme, and not in the good way that the movie was (c’mon nobody can really do Elle Woods but Reese!), I am now committed to seeing who wins this competition. I was the same way with the Grease! search for the next Sandy and Danny. I didn’t mean to watch it, but I couldn’t help myself.
This one is even a little more interesting since the producers are messing with them, like having their partners deliberately drop lines during audition readings. Which is excruciatingly delicious to watch. I mean, I’m assuming these girls have acted in at least high school plays and should know how to cover when someone else screws up, but the vast majority of them just let the silence stretch and stretch until the partner finally delivered the line.
I’ll have to set the DVR to catch the rest of the series.
Now I am tired and I have the Delta Nu Nu Nu song in my head this morning.
