Broken ankle. Fallen Show, Tom's eyelashes... [Dec. 19th, 2016|08:17 pm]
tasabian
Broken ankle update: today I was able to ride my stationary bicycle for 15 minutes, which was very exciting! My injured leg has shrunk and now I have a "thigh gap" which is not a desirable attribute - the cats keep falling into it. I want my beefy muscular legs back.

Michael's show "Impastor" has been cancelled, which wrecked me. Tears were shed. (Granted, I'm more emo than usual this year but it just feels like 2016 has no good news to offer.) I loved this show, as funny and sweet and hyperactive as a Labrador retriever puppy, and a perfect vehicle for Michael. This gentleman eloquently sums up our collective loss:

Anyway, Michael had his usual Christmas party with friends...

Tom usually attends Michael's party but he's taken his pretty face to New Zealand (and is still selling his charity shirts to raise money for St Jude's Hospital, bless.)

Specifically Tom was/is in Queenstown? Is that close to you? Keep an eye out for him.

The Baum is fine - it's me with the broken ankle & unwelcome thigh gap.

Shame about the show....
It truly is. It was a lovely vehicle for him.

Same island anyway. You can fly in and out of it I think, but he should come visit our squashed city which is famous and everything. Mind you if he's really outdoorsy only he might be happy just with Queenstown (tourist central) and environs - it's all skiing and jumping off bridges, whitewater rafting etc down that way.


DAMMIT I forgot about your ankle! When my brother broke his hip one leg was thinner than the other for AGES. Hope you get those muscles back soon!

He's staying in NZ over Christmas so he may end up in your town!

Thanks - now that I've got a "walking cast", I'm able to move more and plan to use the stationary bike every day.

Sad about Impastor - it deserved better, as did all the cast. 2016 seems determined to keep on being crap right until the last day :(

Enjoy the cycle training!

I'm so weak compared to where I was in September...but hopefully day by day there will be progress.

Such a lovely group. Will miss all their interactions on twitter.

Yes, 2016 officially blows. I'm glad you're able to exercise on your bike now, though! Best wishes with getting your muscles built back up.

Michael is such a doll-boy. I'm sorry the show was cancelled. He'll come up with more ideas, and I hope he gets them produced!

I hope you have a happy Christmas, despite all the bad news. <3

He's resilient but I know this show was special to him - wish we could have had just one more season to wrap up the plotlines.

Thanks! I'm still in my "boot" but it's exciting to be able to exercise a bit - boot comes off Jan 3 & then the exercise proper will begin.

Happy Christmas to you as well!

Good to hear you're able to use the stationary bike now. :)

Hearing that Impastor was cancelled just broke my whole family's hearts. I always watched it with my mom, sister, and nephew. We all just absolutely loved it. I don't know what the chances of TVLand changing their minds, but I keep hoping.

Thanks! Being able to exercise a little is good for the spirits.

A better chance might be a pick-up from another network...but of course, the actors will all be looking for work so the decision would need to be soon. It's such a great little show - breaks my heart there won't be any more :(

I can't believe this broken ankle thing is still a thing. Fuck, those broken bones are hard on us as we get older. So sorry to hear it isn't totally healed and hope to have you up and running in no time.

I remember talking to you about the show's cancellation on twitter and thinking you were so....together about it. I'm sorry you cried real tears but it is SO what I'd do (*have done...like just recently about my man, Santino Fontana, leaving Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. I cried. Like a lot. And it was not leaked ahead of time so it really caught me for a loop.

As for Impastor, I had just filled out a survey on twitter about how wonderful it was and no sooner did I scroll a few pages word was out it was cancelled. I was SO pissed. My husband and I had savored the final ep and talked in length about where they were going to go with it in Season 3 only to find out S3 was kaput. I had just told the twitter gods (whomever had the survey) how it was one of my favorite shows on TV and I told everyone I knew to watch it and best of all.....it was MY HAPPY PLACE. (I always like to have a show that is my happy place and Impastor was it.) . I never felt TVLand was the best place for it. Any chance it being picked up by another network aka Nashville?

It was the perfect vehicle for Michael and it had such great characters. Every week my favorite character changed. Sara Rue was perfection. And Michael was the best I've ever seen him. And Michael Kosinski stole every scene he was in! What a damn shame.

Anyway, I hope you survive the Canadian winters on crutches and you have a Happy New Year!

Thank you. Happy New Year to you too!

The ankle bone is completely healed and the boot comes off on Tuesday, which is exciting.

It was a great cast - will miss it so much. Michael said in a facebook video that he doesn't think another network is likely to pick it up, which is a pity. I would love to see the characters get their happy endings.

I hope your favourite guy eventually returns to Crazy Ex-Girlfiend. As long as the show is on the air, there's hope!

Thanks! Although I talked to him a few weeks ago and he said he was willing to come back but is also doing Broadway stuff, so who knows?

Boot off! Yay!!!
