I just watched the second part of Elizabeth I on HBO, and I liked it. The ending was lame, and to be honest the swordfight choreographer must have watched too many roll Errol Flynn movies. But I like Jeremy Irons and most movies of that time period.
Since I bought non-refundable plane tickets to PIT I'm going to AC this year. Even if I could refund the tickets I'd probably go anyway as it's like the only vacation I get besides Xmas and I have to lie, cheat, and steal to get the time off. AC last year kind of sucked, it's true, and it may very well eat a dick this year too. Maybe I'll go to one of those california cons next time. It's a mystery.
