Rafa, TV & Obama

Glad to see (or, rather, not 'see' but find out the results) that Rafa won his first round match in Melbourne. I expected a victory and am pleased with precision at which he completed the task. 6-0, 6-2, 6-2 - finished in less than an hour and a half  - and  ten aces to boot. Now if only I could have actually watched some of it. I even tried to get to work early to see some of it but no luck. Oh well, maybe the second round will be more readily accessible.

Moonlight has been released on DVD. As much as I'd like to, I'm not rushing out to purchase it. I'll wait for the Blu-ray thank you very much. This week's EW featured a promo article re: Season Three of The Tudors. YAWN. Really, the death of Anne Boleyn  pretty much wrapped that one up for me. Anne Boleyn > everyone else. As much as I'm curious to see Joss Stone as Anne of Cleves, the prospect of sitting through an entire season or even an entire episode featuring the oh-so-tediously-boring Jane Seymour appeals to me about as much as watching an Ivo Karlovic match. *shudders*

The Last Templar part one was on hier soir. I didn't see all of it but the Templar flashbacks were certainly squee-worthy. I'll be watching it in its entirety this Sunday and Monday when it airs on NBC. Templars = archaeological porn

I'll end on a good note. I enjoy all the optimism and positivity gushing forth from America right now. The inauguration was everything it was billed up to be. It was almost as if you could hear a collective sigh of relief the minute Bush left. My two fav Obama quotes, (although likely controversial): "We will restore science to its rightful place" and (paraphrased) "you should be judged on what you build not what you destroy". Regardless of  his ability to follow through on his aspirations and promises, I think Obama has already succeeded on some level in just restoring much needed hope to Americans and delivering some degree of respectability abroad that was so desperately lacking over the past eight years.

YAY for Rafa...and about the outfit I think my best friend & I are the only ones till now who dislike it :P

@ inauguration: It felt good seeing the new president. I didnt hear much of the speech as I was at my sister's house & my family were talking, but I heard that it was a really good one.
Believe me, you are not the only ones who dislike Rafa's outfit. I don't think I've talked to anyone who does likes it (except me - and even then I don't think it is that great).
