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,
