I've spent tonight watching "Moonlight" on the Sci-Fi Network. It's a television show about a vampire private detective in LA seeking redemption for his murderous past. Sound familiar? Yeah, that's because it's the exact same plot as "Angel: The Series," the Buffy spin-off. Same film noir cinematography, worse dialog, worse editing.

This show is complete with a blond-haired, angel-faced human love interest that finds out about his vampire identity and partners with him to solve crimes.

Behold, Elizabeth Rohm, "Kate" on Angel...

And Sophia Myles, "Beth" on Moonlight.

Also interesting to note that David Greenwalt, former Buffy and Angel producer, is also involved in this show.

Funnily, this show was originally called "Twilight." Don't get me started on Twilight.

"What does that meeeeeeeaaaaan?"

I saw my share of whacky footage while I was working in news, but this one takes it to a 'ho 'notha leva'.

As a public relations professional, I admire her dedication to sticking to her talking points and plugging her website. I think she says "Matt Lauer was better!" at the very end.

Powdered PB and other random bits

I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of my powdered peanut butter that I ordered last week from Bell Plantation. This was actually Paul's idea, but I must admit that I am intrigued. You mix this stuff with water, and apparently get a low-fat peanut butter, made from real peanuts and not much else. They also offer this product in a chocolate version.
I am also anxionsly waiting to hear back from a job interview that I had on Friday. I keep flip-flopping between thinking that I nailed it to thinking that I blew it. I'm supposed to hear something by Tuesday.
Paul had some family in town from Chicago this weekend who came over for lunch today. Paul made chicken and ribs and we spent the morning cleaning the house. Paul said that we need to get an HGTV show called "People Coming Over" that demonstrates ways to make your house presentable in 2 hours.
