Hamlet 2. Stupid but funny. The song Rock Me, Sexy Jesus is really quite catchy.

Saw Bridesmaids while on holiday. A lot more intelligent than the trailers would have you believe. Watched The Mortal Storm about the rise of the Nazi's at the insistence of my sister-in-law. She slept through the sad parts!

Since our talk about Michell's Henry VIII, I've been enjoying "The Shadow of the Tower." Honestly, I'm enjoying it very much (even beyond my beloved game, "Spot the British Actor" - for which this is rich pickings, including, as it does, faces from everything from "As Time Goes By" to "Hitchhiker's"), and have purchased it already from Amazon, even without having gotten to Disc Three yet.

On vacation, the family introduced me to "Psych" - also a great deal of fun. I like Dule' Hill. The lead's line readings and mannerisms drove me nuts reminding me of someone, until I figured out he's Sam Rockwell (as Zaphod, specifically) Mach II. Still, I like Rockwell, too, and the show is amusing (most of all, surrounded by my benignly maniacal family), so much fun there as well.

Apostles of Comedy: the movie. Hilarious. Those guys are seriously funny. Even my husband who doesn't like stand-up was laughing.

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favorite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

Have finished The Pallisers and feel almost lost now without more of it to look forward to. It was wonderful from start to finish.

Also watched The Apartment. Quite good.

"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt 2", outstanding movie and a great end of the movie series.
