Shit shit shit shit shit. This week has sucked eggs!!! I could complain about how I didn't get into either show (no, not even the chorus in Pirates), or add on to my last entry and I haven't even checked to see if it's working here. I could go on, but...

Yeah, remember than friend of mine that I mentioned on Saturday? She apparently took a turn for the worse tonight and it doesn't look like she's gonna make it. Why did this have to happen?! I mean, I wasn't that close to her, but still! I know her! I thought she was gonna be okay being the eternally hopeful soul that I am. Ivan found out around the time the show started, so he called everyone else and we all met after the picture call. Hey God, if you feel like handing out a miracle, Johanna could really use one right now! Dammit, this sucks...

On a brighter note, I got to see my dad today! My mom had to fly to Denver to see some friends, and he stayed up here, hung out with me at work, saw March of the Penguins (awesome movie), and then saw the play again. The poor guy was up at 3AM, so he was really tired. Poor Daddy... Ivan told him what was going on while we were all in the theater, so at least I don't have to tell my parents.

So please guys, even though it looks really uberly grim, could you still pray for Jo? And for her family? I mean, they all ready lost her brother cause he died at the scene of the crash. I feel so sorry for her sister cause they were triplets and she wasn't in the car, so she's fine physically. ERG! What am I supposed to do now?! *throws random objects*

Don't you love how bright and cheery this entry was? ^^;

ERG! I can't register cause the stupid page won't come up! I need to get into the afternoon classes, dammit! Not happy right now... Okay, technically we're having photo call, so I gotta go. Oh crap, hi Ivan! ^^;

JOHNSBACKJOHNSBACKJOHNSBACKJOHNSBACKJOHNSBACKJOHNSBACKJOHNSBACK!!!!!

Did I mention that John is back from Australia? He's like the coolest kid ever! Heh, just saw him in the theater office, and I think when he realized he'd been spotted he tried to hide behind the desk, lol. I'm so happy! I didn't realize he was going to be back this soon! He didn't tell anyone, I think, but I'm still happy!

Okay, I have to get ready for auditions for the next play. I auditioned for Pirates last night and frankly I think they hated me. Curse you, braces!!! Curse you to the lowest depths!!!

Meep...

Yeah, I know you're all wondering about why I'm up at 9 am on a Saturday, and I'd love to tell you about how well the show is going and that I'm in the improv show tonight and what my parents and I did when they came to see it on opening night, but well... The reason I'm awake was I just got a phone call, and it's prayer request time. Apparently one of the girls that's done tech on this show and the last one got in a really bad car accident last night and it doesn't look good. We're meeting at 10:30 to talk about it as a company, I guess. Good grief, how are we supposed to do the show tonight?! How are we supposed to do improv?! She was watching rehearsal on Wednesday night!! I mean, I'm not close to her, but I still just feel... I can't explain it =/. Hoping for the best here.

Stole this from Candy-chan.




XD that's so true!

Other than that, I'm doing better. The play starts on Thursday *crosses fingers*. I got cast, what, three weeks ago? Hee hee, wow. And I only had rehearsal like twice a week until now, too. Just figured out my schedule for next year. If I'm lucky, my earliest class will start at 10:40 *prays for that*. I haven't even had time to take my really hard science classes yet... Oh well.

New York pics still on the way. I haven't had time to scan them yet. And apparently I can save them here now for posting. Woo! I might make them smaller, too, so my cut isn't ginormous. But that's in the future...

Okay, here's the entry you all probably wanted to see! My account of my wonderful trip to the Big Apple this weekend! And I actually only ate strawberries fruit wise.

FRIDAY: We arrived around 7, went to our hostel (Upper West side my foot, we were in Harlem), and then went and bought Metro cards! Kathy got her first ride on a subway. Wheee! Then we went to Time Square. When I got out of the subway station on 42nd street, I thought my eyes were going to burn out of their sockets. There were so many lights and people and tall, interesting buildings! I couldn't help but gawk and take pictures, hee hee. Then we wandered around aimlessly, ate some Italian, Rahul and Shruti and I got lost and ended up walking past the swanky district and the southern edge of Central Park, and that was about it. Got back around midnight.

SATURDAY: Started off the day with a backstage tour of Wicked! Wow, it was cool. We got to see costumes, and the stage (which I couldn't take a picture of, but it was amazing), and two guys from the cast talked about the basics, since we obviously couldn't see the fancy stuff. It was really cool, since we all knew it would be next to impossible to get into the actual show. Then we met some actress lady and ate at this uberly expensive place which didn't make me very happy. After that, Rahul, Shruti, and I saw Fiddler on the Roof (starring Harvey Fierstein and Rosie O'Donnell). It was so good! It didn't have any gigantic special effects, but everything was still amazing. Lotsa fun. Then we wandered around again, and I got lost trying to find the other show (Off-Off-Broadway) I wanted to see, and it was raining, so I gave up and fortunately remembered how to get back to the subway.

SUNDAY: This is my favorite story day. Out of the 13 of us students, 11 wanted to see shows (Rahul and Shruti wandered around again and I gave them my phone since theirs don't work in the states). 10 of us were going around and trying the lotteries. Basically, you put your name down on a sheet of paper and if you want 1 or 2 tickets, and they draw them about 2 hours before the performance. The tickets are in the front row and cost around 25 dollars. Of the 10 people trying (all of us asking for 2), 2 people won for Avenue Q and 3 people won for The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. We tried Wicked, but no one got it. Well, the 11th person, Halcyon, stood in the cancellation line there for 3 hours and managed to get a seat 12th row center. Needless to say, we were all jealous. But anyway, I saw Avenue Q which was freaking amazing! I loved it so much! What surprised me was how many people did more than one character puppet wise, and there was another girl who would control the second puppet if they both had to be onstage. They would even keep the facial expression of the puppet they were holding, even if they were talking for the other one! Oh, twas so good... Three people don't have puppets, sort of the older and wiser ones like on Sesame Street. They even had these little screens that would have animations and such on them, keeping up with the adult Sesame Street theme. I can expand for anyone who wants me to later. Then we all met up, got dinner quickly, and eventually made our way to the Upright Citizens Brigade improv show which Julia wanted all of us to go to. It was pretty good. I wasn't amazed or anything, but I liked it. Then we wandered around for a while, saw a guy get splashed by a puddle from a passing taxi (Shadenfreude!), and eventually went back.

MONDAY: First off, we met this lady who does a lot of different theater thingies and she talked to us for a while, blah blah blah. Then I went with Rahul and Shruti to this Indian restaurant that they found, and since their from India, they knew what everyone was and told me what I should get, since it was an all you can eat buffet thingy. The food was a little spicy, but it really wasn't too bad. Then we went to the Statue of Liberty, Ground Zero T_T, and Shruti and I managed to find the Kinokuniya Bookstore, which was awesome! Then we (ironically) all ate at a Japanese restaurant, which also had great food and saw Altar Boyz. It was so funny! It's like a parody of N'Sync and the Backstreet Boys sort of styles, but they're a Christian group. I recommend the soundtrack (and the show) to all. And then we went and got cheesecake at Roxy's in Time Square. Holy freaking crap. They literally had mugs of hot chocolate (cause it was raining again), and huge pieces of cheesecake. I got strawberry, and I ate the whole thing! Yay me! Then I went back and went to bed.

TUESDAY: I came back. It was boring.

Pictures to come!!!
kaito: (Default)
Holy freaking crap! Today started out on the crappy side. I don't feel up to expanding on that. So, we've got our next play coming up, "You Can't Take It With You," which opens Nov. 10. I heard yesterday that one of the girls who had a smaller part was not only leaving the cast, she was leaving the college all together. I vaguely wondered who they'd get to replace her, but put it at the back of my mind. So tonight, I went to company call, figured I'd be there an hour and a half, and then go do my homework. As I was getting ready to leave for the work part of it, Julia says, "Hey Kathy, would you mind reading for this part?" I was like, "Okay..." We just did this end of a scene, and the character is completely plastered and singing and stuff. So, long story short, after we did this, she said, "Okay, you have the part!" Me: O_O Thanks! So yeah. Thankfully it's not too huge of a part and I'm passed out most of the time, but still, I'm in the play now! Yay! I'm so happy! They'll have to find someone else to run the light board now, lol. Of course, this means I got to my room half an hour ago, and adding in winding down time and calling my mom, I haven't done my homework yet! AHHH!!!

KAITOU KID CAME OUT TODAY!!!!!! WOO HOO!!!!!!!!! My mommy said she'll look for it for me. She'd better get it up here! I want Kaitou pronto! Especially before [profile] candy__chan, cause she got Inuyasha movie 3 before I did and that's so not fair, lol. Also, today is the 12th anniversary of Animaniacs! Yay random celebrations!

Play rehearsals are going good. My errors on sound board are becoming few and far between. I should be good by opening night. It's a weird play, and yet it's really funny. Especially Joe in the toast scene. I actually make an effort to look over the sound board to watch that one. You should come up and see a 19 year old drinking actual beer on stage at a dry campus and toasters that toast to the verge of flames on light. It's awesome.

While reading Cassie's journal (I only comment when I find something to say, lol), I realized that I hadn't updated my interests in forever, so I did that. I originally would have had to explain Cartoon Network, Miroku, and Terra (TERRA!!!!!111one), but now, well...


Look at your LJ interests list. If you have fewer than 50 interests, pick every fifth one, and explain it. If you have between fifty and seventy-five interests, pick every seventh one. If you have over seventy-five interests, pick every tenth one. If you have fewer than ten, pick all of 'em.

Beast Boy: He's awesome. Best of the five main Titans in my opinion. Cause Terra is so much cooler than all of them. And then Starfire, Cyborg, and Raven tie for third. Robin's annoying.

FanFiction.net: I like to write! And I suck at making my own characters. In fact, I posted a new one-shot today, "Citizen Kaito." I made an effort to finish it yesterday so I could post it on Kaitou day, hee hee.

Inuyasha: It's a really good show. The characters and storylines are so in depth that it's easy to find something to love. Plus, I watched it from episode one, so I'm not an annoying screaming fangirl. I'm just a normal annoying fangirl, lol.

Miroku: Apparently, I have to explain him anyway! He rocks. I wish I had a black hole in my hand. Even though it would kill me. And he's not hard to look at. And he makes me laugh. And he's a nice guy deep down inside.

Shonen Jump: Lots of manga for five bucks a month. It saves on my having to buy graphic novels, I'll tell you that! Plus, they're all worth reading. Even Yu-Gi-Oh! is tolerable in it's original format. And how else are you going to know the story of One Piece without having your ears bleed?

Zelda: Best video game series ever. Halo and Final Fantasy are stupid! Okay, I've never played them, but I've grown up with Zelda, and it's my kind of game. Areas open up to you as you gain items, you become "stronger" as the story goes along, and you get to stab stuff.

Well, my life is boring! Just got back from cue to cue for True West. I'm running sound. We have a really nifty new sound board and everything. Yay! Other than that, nothing too exciting. I know Inuyasha movie 3 came out, but I haven't gotten off campus and I all ready saw it thanks to Rachel. I heard they dubbed my favorite line right, though! Yay! Although, now I can complain that they released it before 132. Grr... It totally ruins that! It makes his line so uberly random then. By the way, 117 premieres tonight in case you were wondering. As does Naruto. I'm gonna try to watch it, although the dub doesn't sound too promising. I wanna know who does Haku's voice! Oh yes, and:

Since I'm totally not up much later than I should be (>.>;;), I thought I'd check in. Curse of the Crying Heart was the greatest play EVER!! Shawn (S-h-a-w-n, lol) was a demon, and he made all of the demons on those animes I watch look like pussy cats. Yes, even Sesshomaru. It was so so so so cool, though! I may force everyone to watch the DVD of it whenever they get it done. I mean, how many plays have flying ninja fighters? One, that's how many!

I randomly decided to change all of my icons. Yes, I even got rid of that Miroku and Sango one I had for... forever. Although, I replaced it with an equally weird one that I made myself, hee hee. The other two are ones that I got elsewhere that I enjoy. You'll see them eventually. *sigh* I really wish we could have more than three and still be cheap skates.

Rummage sale at my church on Saturday! I'm selling a bunch of my old crap and all of the funds I make go to my Tanzania trip, so buy my junk! Westminster Presbyterian, in case you didn't know. Okay, if my mom sees I'm still awake, I'll be in trouble. And I need to finish reading this week's Inuyasha chapter online... Laters!

~msbbt

P.S.- Happy Birthday, themonkeymaiden! ...It's today, right? o.o;

So, apparently, these people have decided that right below my room is a good place to have a mini barbecue thingy complete with a guitar and a hand drum (at least the kid playing it is a percussionist). I mean, that's all fun for them, but I frankly didn't ask for music and my room isn't exactly soundproof. It's rather annoying, because they are literally right below here. Blah. Mayhaps I should put on some music. Besides, this guy only appears to know two rhythms and I kind of want to throw something at them... Stupid screens. ...Okay, that's it for my life. Well, not really. Tomorrow is the start of the 48 hour play festival thingy. So, I audition in the afternoon, find out that night, and if there's a miracle and I get in, there'll be a performance on Saturday. But yeah. It's hard to explain, and I frankly want to see if I can close my window any tighter at the present. I've been in really bad moods lately. Could ya tell?

I really hate my life. I honestly feel like I only have three friends, and that's only because they'll IM me whenever I'm on AOL or MSN. Then there's this stupid theater department where I don't feel like I'm a part of it at all. I honestly think the only reason I get any attention paid to me is because either it's one of the few other people who don't feel like a part of it (and none of them are majors), because my being a major gives them money, or because they have a question and no one else is around (seriously just happened). I mean, I'm sitting in the office crying and like three people have said something to me about it. Three. Out of about thirty people here. I'm totally skipping strike. I felt like crap in the first place and this just isn't helping. This place is so freaking cliquey and I'm not in one so I don't matter! It's like freaking show choir all over again. It's really too bad that I wanna be a voice actress so much (and go to Africa), because otherwise, I'd leave. In fact, I'm going to see how next year goes (mostly for Tanzania), and see about transferring. I don't know if any other schools will be any better. Chances are I won't have any friends there either. But I just feel like crap. It's like I don't matter to anyone. Except for like those three people who IM me all the time, and that makes me happy.

You know, I really didn't think things could get any worse. But they did. It's nothing serious. I mean, everyone's still alive and everything. But things just majorly suck now. I don't feel up to going into detail.
kaito: (Default)
Anybody else wish that there was a pause button on the world so you could just have all the time you wanted? I know I do. I think my head's gonna asplode. And, of course, it's completely my own fault. I need to talk to a lot of people. I'll have to do that tomorrow before class, cause right now I just wanna rest.

Well, I'm in Skin of Our Teeth. I have a really small part, though. I say one line in the second act, and then I think I randomly come on stage. Oh well, it's definitely better than nothing. Stupid braces... I can't remember when the read-through is, though. Whoops. I should ask during choir to make sure I didn't all ready miss it. Wait, there's no way she could have it in the afternoon...

Other than that, I'm getting nothing done. My room's still a wreck, my stories aren't moving, and about the only thing I can focus on is making music videos. Life just hasn't been liking me these past few years...

Well, things are kind of weird. Chai fest completely wore me out. Completely. I'm not feeling so hopelessly depressed, but I keep sleeping in. I was late for work, but I was the only one who was supposed to be in and no one goes to the Art Gallery anyway, so that was okay. Then today, I did another "sleep freakishly late" thing again, although this time I at least made it to choir. I really don't know what I'm going to do. I'll have a long talk with my professors about it, especially my math one, and I'm planning on forcing myself to make a schedule later tonight so I can fall into habits. It'll be the best thing for me.

I don't know if I should pull an all-nighter to fix this right away or not. It might help. I need to do some reading and I haven't written in forever, so I'd have time to do that. *sigh* Curse the life of a college student. In more exciting news, I get to run the lighting board for the next play! True, I have absolutely no idea of how, but it'll be a good learning experience. I like tech stuff, and it's really fun now that I can actually do it. Erg... I am so busy this semester, and I'm not even taking as many classes!!! Oh well, things will work out in the end. I mean, they have to, don't they?

"I agree!"

Well, Vespers is over. I must admit, I highly enjoyed it even though we had five performances. It was much more fun than the high school concerts! Speaking of concerts, my parents are all excited about my band concert on Wednesday. However, I haven't had the heart to tell them that I've missed every rehearsal for this concert thanks to Honk! and Vespers, so I'll need to think up some sort of excuse so they don't waste their time coming here. Either that or pray we get a blizzard. ...Why can't I tell them?! I think I'm afraid of disappointing them. That's why I tell them that all of my classes are going fine when they really aren't. Curse you, phobias and OCD! Curse you I say!

Speaking of problems, I totally forgot to connect Sunday afternoon Vespers with Sunday afternoon work. I forgot to tell the lady in charge I wouldn't be there and by the time I remembered, it was too late to call anyone else. Needless to say, the Art Gallery didn't open today. I sure hope nobody showed up... People don't usually, but with my luck some huge tour bus or something showed up... If the lady who tends to come a lot came, I am dead meat. Only I could risk getting fired from a job that consists of sitting at a desk and doing homework...

I think one of my fishies is sick. One of her eyes looks funny. I hope she'll be all right, cause I really don't think it's possible to doctor fish, you know? Poor Terra... (that's her name). Sango and Hatori look fine though! Shoot, I'm almost out of food... Were my parents going to come on Wednesday like they think they are, this wouldn't be a problem, but my last final is on the fifteenth... I wonder if Schneider and I will have any free time to get some...

I'm the most scared about my religion class right now. I really need to talk to all of my profs, but I just get so scared! Religion is sort of fun right now, though. We have this thing called the Advent Service of Waiting tomorrow night, and it's actually just our class doing skits summarizing the course. Our group is basing ours on using the discussion boards, which we had to do a lot in the course. It's really funny. One kid keeps saying "I agree," and another one asks the dumbest questions. Then we have the "teacher" (which we're going to make our group leader play) come on and say that "he" keeps losing fingers, cause we had class canceled once because he got a really bad cut on one of his fingers. It's very funny. Another group is doing a class period and one of my friends is going to be the teacher. He was showing us what he was going to do and it was PERFECT! I think I'm going to have fun with this! Afterwards, we all have to go to Fryin' Pan (like Perkins down one level) for "breakfast" (at like midnight), and we have to sit down and pick up our water glass. Then we can leave or do whatever.

My mom got me the stuff for my crappy present idea, so I guess I'm doing it! She got me a ton, too, so I'm happy cause I was thinking "I may have to leave somebody out!" I also have auditions for "After Death" tomorrow and probably Tuesday. I know my monologue and all, but I need to throw together a monologue really fast. I believe I got a template in Acting... I'll have to look...

*looks back at entry* Wow. Did any of that have anything to do with anything? Yeah, didn't think so. That's why I call this RantFest!

Speaking of recorders, I am going to have a heck of a time getting our recorder piece for Christmas Eve. I'm pretty sure I won't have time until I get back on the fifteenth, and even then I'll just want to rest. I'm seriously considering using Feliz Navidad. My dad will probably tell me I can't, but it's either that or the world's most random medoly, with is also something I've wanted to do for that. themonkeymaiden, if you have any ideas, please tell me!

Still lost on Christmas presents. I'm pretty sure I know what I'm going to give Christie, though, since she more or less told me something that she wants. I'll probably just use that stupid idea that I all ready had, but other things for people are just running short in my mind. I think I should just go shopping (preferably here since the mall is bigger, but I can make due in Sioux City, I guess) and look around. If something strikes my interest or makes me think of someone, I'll just get it. I can always look at themonkeymaiden's little list that she posted, but I like surprising people, so I'll see what happens.

Auditions for the next play are Monday and Tuesday. I have to go on Monday cause that's when they'll hear prepared auditions, and I'll probably be asked to come back on Tuesday so they can hear me read from the scripts since I'm a freshman and they aren't totally used to me yet. I think I know what monologue I'm going to use, but I had this evil idea to use something else that's similar but it isn't really a monologue since it isn't from a play. I could make it seem like it if I play my cards right, though. Both have to deal with death, which is what the next play (or should I say set of plays?) is about, so that's why I want to use them. And both are supposed to be delivered by men, but that really doesn't matter in this case. I don't know if I'll get a part or not. It'd be nice, but it really doesn't matter. I think I have a pretty good shot, but we'll just have to see.

Bah, I have a lot of homework... I should stop ranting and do that... I'll be back to complain (probably about Christmas) soon!

*sniff sniff* Well, I just got back from strike. I'm so sad that Honk! is over!!! It was the best experience I've ever had on stage... Oh well. Auditions for the next show are after Thanksgiving, and who knows how that'll turn out... If I don't get in acting, I'll do tech anyways, but still... (although, the Honk! director is doing this next show and said "What makes you think you won't get in acting?" *shrugs* He tends to be overly nice though XD). I'm still very sad though... I mean, I'll see everyone (but the kids) again since I'm in other things with them, but I just feel so... empty.

Well, the votes are in! Nine audiences, nine different responses! And the winner of the Best Audience award is *drum roll, please*....

CLOSING NIGHT!!!

That's right! Our last audience stood out among the others not just in numbers, but in responsiveness (I just made up a word, didn't I?). In a very close second comes Thursday night, and after that is Opening night. Congratulations all of you, you tried very hard! ...Why did I even put this section in here?

Anyways, it was so nice to see my brother!!! I think he really liked it... XD. He seemed to be enjoying himself. David came, too, cause I think Rachel told him about it. I hadn't seen him in a while, so that was nice. I guess my brother can also come home for Christmas, so that makes me happy, too, cause we aren't always sure if he cane make it. My sister and brother-in-law (gak, I'm still not used to that...) SAY they can come, but we're not too sure ourselves cause that's when they're supposed to be on their Honeymoon... Whatever. Back to what I was talking about, he was telling us about his next show which is sort of an anime/samurai thing (and it's a sequel to a western.... o_O). It sounds so awesome! He apparently had to watch Samurai X for it, lol. So it's fun, especially cause I can talk to him about anime since he's seen a good amount of them (including Inuyasha). In fact, a few months ago he mentioned that he might base his role off of Sesshomaru. I dunno... I hope I can go see it, but I might be on choir tour and then have second semester... It depends on a lot, I guess. *looks at schedule* Hold your horses... I might be able to go!!! YAY!!!

*sigh* I'm so tired... Now it's time to start doing my school work again!!! XP Well, okay, I'll do that tomorrow... I'm gonna go to bed now... Or may just stare at stuff. Whatever.

I'm gonna DIE, I swear!!! Two performances of Honk! today, three tomorrow, and me on the verge of a nervous breakdown. These are not good circumstances, folks. I mean, don't get me wrong. I love the show! It's probably the best I've ever been in! But having all of these performances, including these matinees for little kids who the show really isn't geared to and seeing them all standing up long before the show is over is not a pleasant situation. Curse you television!!! Curse you I say!!! (everyone stares at my collection of icons and thinks "Suuuuure, you hate TV...")

The crowd tonight wasn't too large, but it was a Wednesday. However, they were just as responsive as the crowd opening night, which was nice, cause that was the best crowd we had both size and reaction wise (yes, themonkeymaiden, that includes you, too :) ). I really wish that we could just NOT do it for those stupid kids, though! It's too long for them, especially when it isn't a real children's show!!!!

In other news, one fish is all ready down. Heh, isn't that the way it works, though? At least one fish will die within three days. However, I have a little thing called "Necrophobia", so I asked Christie to take care of the poor thing for me. My other fish seem fine, though. He was the male Platty, so maybe the girls ganged up on him or something, lol. I'll see how they fare for a while and maybe buy another fish if these ones seem to not be dying...

I can't believe it's almost Thanksgiving. I mean, I'm excited (yay for THREE days off of school, then a weekend ^_^), but time is just passing so fast. And then we get to the Christmas season. As much of a warm, fuzzy Christmas fan I am, it usually ends up driving me crazy. In our stupid commercialized world, I never know what to buy anybody! Or WHO to buy things for, for that matter. I mean, if I get a gift for one friend, another may find out and be like "Why didn't she get me anything?" And then I have to be careful with price, and again, I have no idea of what ANYBODY wants. Last year, I got my parents a Tetris game for Game Boy (yes, my parents have a Game Boy; long story, don't ask). I recall hearing that the original Dr. Mario was coming out for it (or maybe I just dreamed that... I can't remember), so maybe I'll get them that, even though they do have an original Game Boy version that daemonguard gave me... I never know what to do for my brother or sister, and now I have my brother-in-law who I might just add my name onto whatever my parents get for him XD.

Then there's the case of ME. I never know what I freaking want!!! I swear, last year every gift I got was Lord of the Rings oriented. Not that I don't love Lord of the Rings, but you'd think at least my parents would realize the monotiny or something... I don't know what they're going to do this year. I mean, I guess my biggest obsessions now are Inuyasha and Teen Titans, but they don't know too much about either of those so I doubt they would get me anything with that. There still is Lord of the Rings, I guess, but I all ready have so much of that... I even have the full story in one book, for heaven's sake. But I guess it doesn't matter, cause with Bush still in office and my sister's wedding, we might not even HAVE a Christmas... (and yes, I actually am serious, although my parents haven't said anything like that)

I don't know what my friends'll do either. Only a few of them (of the ones who actually bother with me, XD) would know about the stupid anime crap, but that tends to be expensive. Hm, I guess my brother does, he got me a "How to Draw Anime" book last year... Where did I put that? Anyways, my other friends shouldn't even bother with that stuff, but they're even more at a loss for me, you know? I've frankly decided that I don't care!!! If you can't think of a gift for me, just don't get me one!!! Of course, you may be like me and think "But I HAVE to!!!" in which case... I don't know. People at least know what I like and don't like. I'm open for video games, books, anime crap (like how I'm using crap? XD), CDs (that are music styles that I like), money... lol. So, as you can see, I really wish people would forget about Santa and all of that stupid stuff and just focus on the REAL meaning of Christmas which has everything to do with Jesus!!! ...And playing recorders.

Until I need to blow off some steam again,

Well, folks, it's going great!!! Can I just say that? I got my fishies, I started cleaning my room (I'm lazy, what can I say?), and the shows went GREAT!!! We set records for opening night at Augie! It was sold out! And it was just so much fun having an audience laughing and applauding! It really added to the show! I'm so glad my parents, themonkeymaiden, and Rachie came! It made me happy! There was also another kid from my high school there. I don't know WHY, but he was. He even stayed for improv. Speaking of which, that went AWESOME!!! That's one of my lines in the title... I got to be in 5,4,3,2,1, Forward Reverse (which was just me and two other people ^_^), Blind freeze (that was everybody, though), and Challenge at the last minute. It was my second time playing and the first time I actually got to talk, and after a while, I did really well! I almost won it! It was so much fun! I hope I get to be in a show again soon, I loved it! Then me and my guests went out for pizza/ice cream. All together, I had a very very good day! I wish I had more of these, lol.

Laters,
