tin man-glitch-happy

ThAt'S iNsAnE!1!1!1!1!1!

Since my last post I have....
-become a senior
-moved apartments
-had awkward moments
-unpacked a lot of boxes
-not found the blender
-rediscovered 30 Rock
-rediscovered Sweeney Todd
-gone to a baseball game
-gone to a pool party in Marin
-played Apples to Apples

Most of that is good. I love, love, love the new apartment. I didn't at first, but it's grown on me. Especially since we got our stuff and it looks like it might actually all fit. Plus--we just found plates, like literally ten minutes ago I found the box with dinner plates in them. Almost a week and I just find them now. Don't judge me. I am somewhat happy with my room for the moment. I say for the moment because my sister is going to be sharing it with me and once she gets home (she's been out of town) there will be hell. It's tiny. She's going to be demanding what she wants in a room. She's going to want everything to match, and so on and so forth. Bah.

Anywho. I love 30 Rock. My dad got a disc of Season 2 30 Rock from Netflicks. I'm like, "Oh, I love that show" and he's like, "should you really be watching that show?" Then we proceeded to watch 5 episodes in one night. I love that show like crazy. Jack and Liz need to get together. It's just something that needs to happen regardless of what actually can happen. *sigh* I've also rekindled my love of Sweeney Todd. Mostly the song "No Place Like London" It's a short song, but a really great one. I love it. I've watched the You Tube version at least 4 times today. I almost have it memorized save a little bit of the end.

Today I went up to Marin to a pool party. It was so fun. Marin and the East Bay are to San Francisco what New Jersey and Connecticut are to New York. I took the bus there so much fun. I wound up taking a taxi to the place even though it was only two miles. I could have walked, but it wasn't worth it. The taxi guy rolled his eyes that I was only going that far but what can I say, damned if you do, damned if you don't. It was fun though. We played the most epic game of Apples to Apples I've ever been a part of. With the best "That's what she said" ever. Seriously, it's was just epic.

glee-rachel-smalltown girl

(no subject)

savvyleartist got me totally sucked into this, but whatever. I still love her.

1. Reply to this post with 'Icons!', and I will pick five (or more, damnit) of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.

Follow the dancing cakeCollapse )

I would also like to take this moment to tell all my friends who have not watched Glee to go and do so now. It is a very squee-inducing musical moonlighting as a one hour comedy. It's fantastic and I'm telling everyone to watch it because of it's fabulousness. *points at icon*

Writer's Block: Places to Lay Your Head

How many different places (cities, houses, apartments, dorm rooms, etc.) have you lived in? Which is your favorite? And your least favorite?

This one is just to good to pass up. I have lived in seven places (make that eight). An apartment in downtown Chicago for a short time after I was born (so short I don't even remember it). Then a condo/house thing on Chicago's south side for about 4 years. We moved to Milwaukee, Wisconsin when I was turning 5, and I did Pre-K and Kindergarden there. I was totally devastated when we moved from there to the Upper East Side of Manhattan in New York City (looking back I have no clue why). We lived there for two years (First and Second grade) where I went to a minuscule school (my class of 14 was the largest in the school) where we wore uniforms and went on field trips every Thursday in order to get out of the building we were renting. The next time we moved to Washington D.C. and lived in Maryland for two more years (Third and Fourth grade). Then to New Jersey where we lived for 6 and a half years (as you can see a record. Last January we moved from there to San Francisco, California, and next month we will be moving into our permanent apartment here (compared to the furnished apartment that we oh-so-lovingly call the Ikea Showroom) and we will (hopefully) have all our stuff.

Wow. I would cut that rant, but the last time I tried an LJ cut Live Journal ate my post, so I'll just leave that the way it is.

Just an observation

So. I just finished watching the Bones finale which was fantastic in sooo many ways. I don't really know how much of that was real, but who cares? It was like, the best Alternate Universe ever and Zack was there. Zack. And Sweets and the whole host of replacement Zacks were all there too. Never mind that Booth and Brennen were... Well, I don't want to spoil anything more than I already have. Lets just day it was orgasmic. Which is a word I don't use very often, but love to pieces.

What I actually want to talk about is something that's kind of universal to tv lately and is kind of bugging me. Has anyone else noticed how a lot of strong female characters have been trying to get pregnant/adopt a kid lately? Three that pop out immediately are Temperance Brennen from Bones, Lisa Cuddy from House, and Liz Lemon from 30 Rock. I think it's interesting for a few reasons.

Fist of all, I find it kind of out of the blue that these characters wish to have children. I haven't watched House in a while, but from what I've understood (correct me if I'm wrong) none of these characters really wished to have children in seasons prior. Brennen in particular sticks out in my memory as saying in season 1 that she didn't even want kids. Why the change?

Second, I must state that I look at television as a medium of art that is very readily available to the public. Therefore I believe that, like art, television reflects the society it comes from. That makes me wonder, are more single, independent women wanting kids now? Why?

Has anyone else noticed this? Is anyone else bothered by it? I truly am curious to know what other people think of this. Are the three, parallel plot lines linked in some way? Or are they all completely unrelated and independent from each other and the real world? Is it a real-life phenomena as well as a television phenomena?

I've found Happy

Such random things today I shall have to number them.

1.) I was on the way home from school today when I saw this girl looking at me. She looked vaguely familiar. I was looking at her and she was looking at me. We both knew we had seen each other before, but neither of us could think of where. Finally she remembered. She was the one who gave me a random hug last week at the bus stop. So we talk. She goes to one of the schools I considered going to when we were transferring, but didn't because they were going to be too strict on the transition. She was saying how she hates it because she has to find a bunch of service hours and if she doesn't soon she's screwed. When she got off the bus she said over her shoulder, "Bye pretty lady." It wasn't until just then that I realized I didn't even know her name. I hope I see her again, she's cool

2.) Founders Night. And the overall weirdness of my school, but mostly founders night. Founders Night is tomorrow and it's the concert night for music things in school. It's the thing I spent way too long looking for a black shirt for yesterday. I'm actually really excited about Founders Night even though James tells me not to be. The only thing I'm mad about is how I won't be able to see the choir. But I have art projects. And singing. And James says he has a bow tie with the F clef on it which is ironic because he plays cello.

3.) I found out my art blocks for next year. I'm kind of excited. I have Sewing and Design which my friend Taylor is really excited about, Modern Art (meh), Metal arts which should be interesting, and Senior play. Which brings me perfectly to...

4.) Senior Play. And the overall weirdness of my school. The Senior class as a whole does a play at the end of the year. I'm kind of excited because my class is small enough so that it's actually going to be fun whereas this years class is kind of big and their play is just going to be one big blob of chaos. Though I suppose based on the amount of time given for rehearsing it will be a well rehearsed blob of chaos. Still excited about my play most of all.

Black Shirts, the longer you wear them the dirtier they get

So I went on a shopping trip by necessity today. I need a black button-down for the Founders Night concert on Thursday. So, shopping for something that specific basically sucks. Seriously. I went to six stores. Two didn't have any, one was too long, one was too short, one was too loose, and one was too expensive. I gave up. Totally. I went to Starbucks and ordered myself a frapachino.

I was sitting on a chair watching one of the Starbucks people wipe down the display case. I must have sat there five minutes before it occurred to me that she was wearing a black button-down shirt. So I asked her where she got it. Two hours of shopping and a chick at Starbucks was able to tell me where to go in two seconds. I should have hit Starbucks first thing.

In other news I can't decide weather or not to be excited about Founders Night, our schools music concert/art show/science fair. I'm singing in the choir, plus I have my books from bookbinding in the art show part. I think the choir is pretty well rehearsed. The thing I'm most upset that we wont get to see the Orchestra though. The way they have things set up there are two rooms of music performances and a few shows and if you aren't in the same room as them then you don't see the group. I get to see drumming and guitar. I want to see Orchestra and Jazz Band. FML. Kinda. Still kind of excited.

I can't believe I went to Prom either. The shoes were painful, the dresses were gorgeous, the dancing was awesome, the food(what there was of it) sucked, and the chocolate fountain was a bad idea for my dress. My school had Prom at school which was lame, they didn't have a theme, which was lamer, but they did a pretty good job of decorating.

I think the best part was probably before I even got there. I was looking on the newsreel thing to see when the next bus would come (yes, I took the bus to Prom) when this girl who was balancing on the bench said, "Oh, you're so pretty, I want to give me a hug." What I am assuming is her boyfriend pulled her down off the bench and she came over and gave me a hug. It was hysterical. She was almost afraid of wrecking my dress, but she was just so excited to see someone all dressed up.

I actually loved going to Prom. I'm really not the prom type and back in Jersey I would certainly not have gone to prom. But I did and it was fantastic. I loved seeing all the kind-of hook ups that were there and it was so funny how almost half the school was trying to get these two together all night. At first I was like, "Are they together?"--"They will be." Hahaha!! I loved dancing. I didn't know what I was doing, but nobody gave me any really weird looks, so I couldn't have been doing that much wrong. Overall a fantastic night.

"Phalanges, Phalanges, Phalanges!"

Because seriously anyone saw that episode?

Spoiler warning for those who haven't seen it.Collapse )

BTW--Does anyone know where I can find bigger pics of the event they were at in my icon. I want to see what she wore with that dress (it's kind of similar to my prom dress).

to be or not to be

I'm sooo hyper right now!! And in a very Shakespearian mood--mulitipule reasons for that. So many I don't even know where to begin. I guess I'll start at the very beginning(a very good place to start).

Today I had to make sure that my teacher got the money for our class trip. We're going to Ashland for the Shakespeare Festival (though from what I understand it's pretty much an all year Shakespeare celebration). I'm so excited for the trip. We're going to see Hamlet, Macbeth, and The Music Man (go figure). It will be the first trip I make with my new class and I'm just overwhelmingly excited. So excited that I will probably sleep in the car on the drive up... but we'll cross that bridge when we get there.

I just looked up the dates and performances for The Public Theater in New York for their Shakespeare in the Park. I've gone to them for the past two years in a row. Last year I saw Hamlet with my friend Kerith and the year before I saw Romeo and Juliet with my mom. I literally fell asleep for part of Hamlet because Kerith and I stayed up until one in the morning the night before. So much fun.
Anywho, This year's play in Twelfth Night which I'm studying right now. It's fun in an awkward sort of way and is showing me more and more that Shakespeare was a sicko. Seriously. Him and Diseny. *nods* But Anne Hathaway is going to be Viola which I find hilarious because Anne Hathaway was the name of Shakespeare's wife. So I decide that Kerith and I are going to go see Shakespeare in the Park again. Yes really. I'm all the way over here on the West Coast and I've decided that we're going to go see it. Not sure how that will work out, but it will.

Third reason I'm excited is for my awesome part time job idea which I also told to my English teacher and she told me that she would try to find more about it for me. I want to work for the Shakespeare company that comes to Golden Gate Park at the end of the summer. They come at the very end of August through the begins of October and I'm hoping to get a job. Not as an actor (that would just be too cool), but as someone who sells t-shirts or hands out Playbills--something. That would let me see the show every night for a month--how awesome is that, plus, I would get a cool t-shirt out of it. Maybe even a sweatshirt.
