You would think, that being out of school would mean I had more free time to read and play and write. You would think, but instead I've been kept busy looking for a 'real' job and doing lots of house cleaning and babysitting in the meantime. Virtual spring cleaning too, cleared out one e-mail from 650 messages to 60.

Have still managed to have the time to see both "Thor" and "X-men: First Class" their opening weekends and was pleasantly surprised that both were better than I was expecting.

And I want this so bad:    http://cubiclebot.com/computers/get-your-own-steampunk-laptop/  . Gorgeous.

Last night was the best cast party I've ever been to! Previous best was when I was thirteen, after 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' our teacher had us over to her house for a barbeque and things devolved into a water fight between fifteen teenagers.

This cast is full of twenty somethings and a few older returning students/local actors that know our director. Director did have us over to his house, and he did barbeque for us, but then we went into his awesome movie theater room and watched a recording of our play; we may have watched each other all the time during practices, but we never got to see the special effects and all the costumes together at once, so it was pretty cool to finally see all of our work come together as a whole. We still went all MST3K on it and at each other, all in good fun since we also quoted lines and sang along together.

When we moved back outside, instead of having a water fight we lit a bonfire! And one of the mortals is a fire dancer, and she "just happened" to have brought her poi along, so she gave us a dance. Then we just sat around the fire and talked, of everything and nothing, quoted other plays and sang, both Disney and Rocky Horror songs. The party was supposed to run to 10 o'clock, but it was still going strong when Dad dragged me home at 11 o'clock.

We all had so much fun together that we're going to have another party together to celebrate the end of finals in two weeks!

Good night, good night, parting is such sweet sorrow,
That I shall say good night till it be morrow.
- Juliet, Romeo and Juliet

If we shadows have offended,
Think but this, and all is mended,
That you have but slumber'd here
While these visions did appear.
And this weak and idle theme,
No more yielding but a dream,
Gentles, do not reprehend:
if you pardon, we will mend:
And, as I am an honest Puck,
If we have unearned luck
Now to 'scape the serpent's tongue,
We will make amends ere long;
Else the Puck a liar call;
So, good night unto you all.
Give me your hands, if we be friends,
And Robin shall restore amends.

- Puck, A Midsummer Night's Dream

And now we are done. 'Orpheus in the Underworld' took a lot of work and it was a lot of fun. None of us really wanted it to end, but it has. Mostly... :)

We had so much fun together even off-stage that we are electively meeting up again at the regular class time and taking over the school theater to watch Disney's "Hercules", whose song "Going the Distance" kinda became our anthem. And we'll be having a proper cast party at the end of the week. And, and our teacher is writing a play for our county's summer theater festival and most of us are also in it!

The noob of our class told us "Good luck," right before going out for our first performance. The rest of us were on him in a moment and schooled him in the superstitions of theater, and threatened blood if he'd cursed us. The outlook for him was quite grim in the first ten minutes; two times the wrong music came up, three delayed entrances, moved props and costume changing difficulties. However, after those first ten minutes the play went fine, and our second performance was great. Today's shows went perfect, and we have only one more performance tomorrow evening.

Ah, Drama Class. Where, when someone randomly starts singing a Disney song, everyone else joins in.  : )

Tomorrow we perform!

My school's GSA club finally had an event that I had the time to attend tonight. I've never been to a dance before though, so I pleaded with Sister for her to come along and ease my nerves. We stayed for two hours and mostly people watched, but did dance together for a little while. Didn't really talk with anyone else, but whatever; we had fun together and looked fabulous. And neither of us had had dinner, and the food provided left something to be desired, so the parents got us chinese on the way home.

P.S.  -  Completely off topic, but I spent all day listening to this. It is awesome!

I've been caught and trapped by School. Even over the break I have work, so no working ahead or catching up on rest. And, have been to one doctor and going to another on Friday. All so very bleh.

Nothing tops how my week started! On Sunday we went to the Star Trek display at the Aerospace Museum! Sadly, they didn't allow photography, after I went to all the trouble of borrowing a camera. But it was awesome anyway. There were information plaques and costumes and props AND... Not only the set piece of a hallway from TNG, but a reconstruction of TOS' bridge where I got my picture taken in the Captain's chair!

Monday I scrambled to complete my Mass Media project and finished with ten minutes to spare to catch the bus. When I got home I started baking for...

The breakfast potluck in my archery class on Tuesday. We were so busy eating and talking with everyone that we didn't even shoot.

Thank goodness my teachers are sensible and gave us Wednesday off even though the school system didn't (we were the only school in our county that wasn't off for the whole week. Why?). Grannie and Papa came up to visit me and we went to see Tangled; I've never seen a movie on opening day and I'd been planning on this for a month. BUT, the stupid digital projector wouldn't work! They were kind enough to give us two ticket passes to make it up, but still very frustrating.

Thursday was Thanksgiving. Family and great food, what more could I want?

Friday we ran errands in the morning, moved furniture in the afternoon, went and put up the grandparent's lights and ran more errands in the evening.

Today we are relaxing and doing house chores, and then this evening we are going to a Christmas program done by three generations of the family that owns half our neighborhood.

Be Forewarned: Big and rambly entry ahoy!

Beware )

My mother is a geek. And I'm following in her footsteps; I gave Stargate Atlantis a try just before school started, and ended up watching two seasons in less than two weeks. Now I'm stockpiling SG1 and SGA to have a marathon over winter break. I also watched some DS9 episodes on youtube and will get that next.

You know that feeling, when you've thought of doing something so often that it surprises you when it turns out you forgot to do it? Yeah, I've got that now. I was so sure I'd started posting again at least after the hullabaloo of school had died down, if not before that. So I'm gonna do a quick catch-up update now and plan on writing more about some of them later.

Oh hey

Hell week starts tomorrow. I know my lines and my blocking but I'm still nervous as all get out. I haven't gotten butterflies before a play in awhile, but then its been two years since my last one. And I've never done more than three performances, one per night; this play, we're doing three performances per afternoon for three days for the campus, then a final night performance for our families.


I just made the butterflies worse. Argh!

Went early to meet Dad for a ride home and while waiting for the walk light to turn, a man leaned out the window of a passing car and shouted "You're beautiful baby!". I have no idea if he was serious, being playful because its St. Patrick's Day, or drunk because its St. Patrick's Day, but it was still kinda nice to hear.
