I DO apologize...

...though I think by now most of you have realized that yesterday's trivia facts were a big fat fake.  I made them all up.  Out of mine own little head.  And much amusement was had in the doing thereof.  Because I really can never resist a good joke.  I dearly love a laugh.

And I really, really hope that all of you have realized that the second post yesterday, the so-called Les Mis review, was also a fake.  I mean, my dastardly sister even signed her name to it, so it can't be that hard to figure out.  For those of you not in the know, my dear sweet sister the Anne-girl did cunningly and with malice aforethought log into my account on the computer and go a-hacking on my Blogger dashboard.  With cackling glee she did compose this thing and then published it and sat back to wait for comments to appear.

I forget what I did to her.*

Let me just establish some facts here.  I DID see Les Mis last week and it was beautiful to behold, minus the scenes we skipped of course, and a review will be coming soonish-ish.  However, though I did think Hugh Jackman was great and definitely deserved an Oscar (more on that later this week), he was not my favorite Valjean and his singing left a great deal to be desired.  Eddie Redmayne was fabulous as Marius but was not perfection (seriously?  as great as Michael Ball?  DID SHE ACTUALLY THINK PEOPLE WOULD BELIEVE I SAID THAT?).  And then of course there was the part about Aaron Tveit as Enjolras.

"Oh, but your Majesty, this is a lie!"
"It is a FALSE LIE!"

You people have to understand that I'm probably the biggest Aaron Tveit fan that ever lived, and his portrayal of Enjolras is, if not my absolute favorite, a neck-in-neck tie with Ramin Karimloo's.  I kind of wish I had swooned at some point during the barricades, because it would be cool to say I had, but then again I would have missed part of the movie if I'd done so, so it's just as well.

All this to say that I would never, ever condemn Aaron Tveit's Enjo on this blog.  Unless, of course, it was April Fool's Day and I was in a particularly devilish mood.

Also, the name is Tveit, not Tviet.  Really now, Anne.

*I didn't actually do anything except shriek and laugh hysterically and tell her she was horrid, but I said that I forgot because I'm paraphrasing a book quote... name the book and the person whose name has been replaced with "her" and you'll get a pretend hug.

You know, you really had me going with your "Random facts" post until the one about Emma Thompson wearing a dress that belonged to Jane Austen. Then I was like, "NO, dude, I would know that." Well played, though!

Did yo get that quote from "The Story Girl", when they were saying something about Felix and said, "I forget what we did to Felix..."??? My mom, when my sister read this post (because we fell for you other posts... :D Were a little skeptical, but we kind of did fall for it! :D) immediately said, "She must have read The Story Girl..." And proceeded to quote the part. :D


Melody said...

Haha, I was seriously signing into blogger thinking, I wonder what Amy is going to do on her blog THIS year...
Of course, I didn't believe yours LAST year either, because that was After the E-mail. ;P

As for your sister's post, whatever glitch it was displayed the 'April Fool's' picture as the thumbnail so that was a definite giveaway. :P (Of course, I would have been able to tell you didn't write it anyways... heeheehee... ;) )

Y'all are hilarious.

I must say, your sister did a remarkable job imitating your writing style; I was totally and completely fooled! (You also got me with the false facts. I tootled my way through them thinking, "I didn't know that . . . wow . . . interesting . . ." and then got to the end of the post, followed the link and had a good laugh over it all.

By the by, you have inspired me to read The Scarlett Pimpernel and I want to thank you for introducing me to such an amazing book! I've almost finished it -- oh, the drama!


Mal said...

Hahaha wow. Yeah I totally fell for it. And the funny thing is, I didn't click on the post that told it was an April Fool's joke, so last night I was sitting there thinking to myself, "But in an interview Richard said that he had read the entire book before going to audition for Mr. Thornton, so he must've known that it wasn't a Civil War movie!" My Richard is smarter than that ;)
That was a pretty good idea for an April Fool's joke ;)

*Settles back to watch the Amy-Eowyn Aaronjolras war.*

Heehee, I knew both posts were a joke and laughed myself silly over the Enjo bashing, knowing you would never say something like that and mean it. :)

You had me going for a while, then I got to the one that said Russel Crowe only sang the minor parts, and.......O_o...YOU KNOW, FOR A FEW SECONDS I BELIEVED IT! Then I read the comments and remembered the date....And knew the feeling of COMPLETE AND UTTER RELIEF!
