Weekly Recap: 7/19 - 7/25

My Super Exciting Life 

This has been the week of back-to-high-school obsession. In high school I had a couple major obsessions: The Lord of the Rings and (starting in 2004) The Phantom of the Opera. I have been totally re-hooked by The Phantom of the Opera. This began when I read Of Metal and Wishes by Sarah Fine at the beginning of the week and fell totally in love.

Of course, I took the obvious next step of pulling out my Phantom of the Opera (2004) DVD and watching it immediately. Followed by ordering the blu-ray. Followed by renting the sequel, Love Never Dies, from Amazon Prime and watching that. Followed (obviously) by buying Love Never Dies on blu-ray. Then I re-watched them more than once. Suffice it to say, I have a problem. Which I will share with you.

Whether you're a fan of the sequel or not (or even know about it) you NEED to see this video!

You're welcome.

That has honestly been the only source of excitement in my life this week. I suspect next week may possibly look similar... Although, there is an exciting giveaway coming up next Tuesday sponsored by Disney-Hyperion, so make sure to check that out!!
