@SmartBitches: For @cleolinda and her dubstep fever, which I think she passed to me today: [ANIMALS TALKING IN ALL CAPS link, yesss]

@SmartBitches: Seriously, @cleolinda, passing on your low grade dubstep fever was TOTALLY UNCOOL. I will have my revenge! After a nap.

@cleolinda: mmcha mmcha mmcha mmcha WOOP WOOP WOOP WOOP

@SmartBitches: *whimper whimper CHU CHU CHU*


The Les Miserables movie is getting Amanda Seyfried for Cosette ("In the musical, the character is the daughter of Fantine, who is set to be played by Anne Hathaway") and Taylor Swift has been offered Eponine, to the consternation of all Twitter. "Also already attached to the film are Hugh Jackman (as Jean Valjean), Helena Bonham Carter, Russell Crowe, and Sacha Baron Cohen," and director Tom Hooper wants to film them singing it live, rather than lip-syncing, and all I know about Les Mis is that all the theater kids were obsessed with it and Valjean like steals a loaf of bread or something so Javert chases him endlessly for umpteen thousand years because sometimes justice is not just, so if someone drops that reference I'll get it, and nothing else. Well, a friend of mine used to play "Master of the House" a lot. Wait, I think I remember Claire Danes in a huge bonnet. Okay, I'm reading the summary on Wikipedia now, and I'm getting "French uprising, not the Revolution like I thought; pretty girls suffer." So, what I'm saying is, I should have a blessedly uncomplicated movie experience, free of any previous stagings. Huzzah!

Meanwhile: LITTLE GIRL IN A CROCHETED YODA HAT FOR YOU TO BUY (the hat, not the girl) (I mean, I guess you can make an offer?).

I am tired. *flop*

You've never read the book? You have to! All 1,200 pages of it. It's the longest book I've ever read and yet I couldn't put it down. It's fantastic. The play only adapts about a quarter of the book. The rest of the novel deals with French history and the history of the Catholic Church and all this other amazing minutiae that you never knew you wanted to learn about.

Oh, and I saw the musical on Broadway when friends of mine were visiting me in NYC, and I expected to hate it but instead I was blown away. So good!

IT'S THE BEST BOOK. I read it when I was fourteen and it's been my favorite ever since!

Aw, Christ, I'm really gonna have to read it then. That is Relevant to My Interests.

Yes! I was dreading that part the first time I read the book, then when I got there I was like, ". . . this is actually interesting. Who'd have guessed?"

Now think about that, and then think about clearing out a zombie infestation in the sewers and catacombs ala World War Z.

NO SLEEP NO SLEEP AUUUUUUGH
