I had quite a wonderful time watching the Bolshoi Ballet's performance of "The Pharaoh's Daughter" in New York on Saturday night. So beautiful and fluid and (overused, but true phrase), poetry in motion. Plus, muscular cute men in mini-kilts. The plot involves an English Lord who smokes up some opium, and dreams up the whole rest of the ballet which involves him, the titular heroine, and a whole lot of glittery tutus.

Considering I spent half the evening discussing things like Farscape, Buffy and Firefly with my ballet-companion friend (her reaction to potential Serenity trilogy if the movie does well? "I guess I'll have to buy 10 tickets"), and bought 10 lovely books (9 of them in Russian), it was a good weekend. Except for the part where the Amtrak train I was on broke down, and very excitingly, we had to be led through the dark train onto a ramp and put onto another one. That, and I almost bought a kitten from a homeless man selling them. Months earlier, my smart husband made me promise not to come home with a pet without asking him, however (he knows me well, I guess).

On the train I was watching some Buffy episodes, more specifically, Becoming Part I&II and two episodes from S3.

Becoming breaks my heart every time. Rather embarassing to be a sniffly girl on a train pulling into New York. Just all that angst, and that absolutely perfect climax with Angel getting his soul moments too late and all that doomed B/A love ("Close your eyes?" One of the top "uber angst" moments of all time, there), and the Spike snark, and the Oz coolness, and have I mentioned the B/A angst? Angel is not that bad looking either

Guh. I'd forgotten how funny it was, and how much I loved it, and how OTPed I was about Buffy/Angel (still one of my favorite all time ships).

I think I am actually going to rewatch all S1-3 eps in a row (yes, never cared for Buffy as much once she graduated, and no, it's not just because of B/A). So expect some Buffy entries now and then (though nowhere near my Firefly frenzy, I promise).

Also, friend and I watched the newest Serenity trailer and it was wonderful and amazing and it just hit me that I will actually see the Serenity crew and the sexiness that is Mal on the big screen. I think I will hyperventilate in the theater.

Sorry for the rambliness, as it's late and am very tired.
