Got through the very last weekend of the ren faire: now have weekends free for homework and TV watching and possibly trying to figure out how to personal tumblr again. Everyone else on the crew left Sunday night/this morning, running for Texas before TRF starts this weekend - you might think it was kind of sad to be left here, but it was actually really rad. I don't have to pack! I don't have to drive somewhere else! Being a local is the best, even if it means my weekly income just dropped by about half.
I have to get through this week of kind of intense homework, and then I'm going to catch up on Doctor Who and finish watching the Wire and start Elementary. I've already started catching up on The Thick of It, i.e., the show of my burned-out political heart. I forgot how much I loved it while it was between serieses, but I love it a lot. So much. It's all shallowness and ridiculous political drama wrapped around the fact that a few of the characters actually CARE about policy and fight through the manipulation instead of against it. While it was off the air, I had to content myself with Romney-gaffes and Herman Cain and American politicians being generally terrible, but I like my political satire better when it's not actually the real world. Veep is good, I like Veep, but it's never going to match TToI for me, and that's okay, because nothing ever will.
Um. Anyway. In other 'overinvestment in politics' news, I've brought back my Ghost Presidents project (which some people might remember from like a year and a half ago). I've nearly completed it, and it'll be here
on tumblr from now until the election. I don't know, check it out?
