Whee. I'm officially in Was-known-as-Christmas-Break-before-the-school-systems-all-went-PC Break, also known as "Winter Break."

Nothing important enough to blog about has been happeneing, or I would've written something.

Over break I have to work on my audition piece for the musical. Well, I don't have to, but I am so that I do well. I just have to decide between singing "Put on a Happy Face" or part of "One Last Kiss." (Or is that "One More Kiss?" I've been working on "Put on a Happy Face" 'cause I don't really want to play Conrad all that mcuh. I will if I'm cast as him, but...)

If you haven't figured it out already the musical this year is "Bye Bye Birdie." Auditions start the day after we get back from break, witht he day we get back being a day Ms. Snyder will help us work on our piece if we want help. She's a much better director than Dinovo already. We didn't know what music we'd be auditioning with until auditions.

I also need an approx. 1 min. monologue for the acting auditions, which are the three school days following the three singing audition days. I get back to school the first Wed. of Jan. The musical is in mid-Mar. I'm looking forward to it, because last year was fun, and this year, we have a better director. <---- Very abbreviatory paragraph.

Fwee!

**Is looking through referrals to blog**

People have found my blog by searching for "pacifier blog", "Photosute" (Yes, that's how I misspelled it in an entry and how it was entered in the person's search), "funny socks", and "blogger comment scripts". Quite diverse.

Thank you, Pisces for your nine million referrals. ^_^

And you, Sean for your many referrals, but not near as many as Pisces'.

Someday, I will social blog, but then I'd feel obligated for a link list, which I won't have until there's a new layout. Which will, hopefully, come soon.

**Baps Anne to get her working**

Yeah, I know, it's about quarter after one and I 'm home from school early. I'm not sick though, we got let out early. The teachers had some... thing they have to do that they decided was worth shortening the school day so that they wouldn't be at school until late. It'll happen again sometime in the spring. Wheee! ?

Writing is a very good stress reliever.

I wrote the second part of my book project last night, by hand, because my parents send me to bed so long before I'm tired that I've begun using that time for homework. Even though I was writing about why The Closing of the American Mind should not be on the list of books for the project, it really help... make things seem not so sucky. I wish I'd bbeen writing in pen. Pens that scratch the paper are the best thing to write with.

And the most evil things in the world of the violin are 4th-finger notes and the e-string. There is no point to 4th-finger notes. They make he tone (supposedly, I don't do them well) the same as the next higest string when it's open. I can change strings for one note easier than I can do the 4th finger. **Baps inventor of 4-th finger notes**

**Lightly baps inventor of e-strings, which are evil, but nowhere near as evil as 4-th finger notes**

The Auk is tonight!

That's always fun. It's a computerized quiz thing, and th Academic Challenge team does it every year. We get food, too.

And I've been printing out FF6 sheet music. I've gotten pretty good at Kefka's theme, for having printed it out yesterday... Sadly, I can't play Celes' them, becuse my left hand simply can't reach far enough to play the bottom part correctly in parts.

Grr. Stupid bell. Must go now.

Subway is the best fast food chain ever.

Really. They have great meatball subs, and I haven't met a person who dislikes Subway yet.

Today, I wen ton a feild trip with 29 other Drama Club members, Hancy (Geh...), and Ms. Snyder, who's taking over direction of the plays from Hancy, with Ms. Derose, and who is now directing the musicals, as that's the Choir teacher's job. She's actually pretty cool. (She's new this year, was in the band, and is aware of Hancy's good directing techniques and her bad. There's no way she could have not been taught by Hancy, so that's good.)

We went to Cleveland to see a production of The Pirates of Penzance. It could've been better, but I liked it.

It was extremely hard to hear the actors, and when more than one set of lyrics were being sung at the same time, you couldn't understand either.

But there were a lot of good parts, too. The school's going to be hearing a lot of "A paradox, a paradox, a quite ingenious paradox, ah-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha, a par--a--dox!" Over the next week or so. Or in the case of Toft and Kelli Kaufmann, "A pair of ducks, a pair of ducks, [Duck noises that fit the Ah-ha-ha-etc...], a pair -- of -- ducks!" ^_^

And the trip itself wasn't bad. I sat by Eric (^_^), and th people I was by are just fun people to be around.

And then we ate at Subway on the way home.

Happy Dance Time!

Book report (really a summary) = done!

It wasn't hard, but The oddest thing is that I wrote 562 words without padding it. And 500 words was supposed to be the limit. Of course, I can't shorten it without losing the... not-badness of the paper...

I don't think Hancy'll mind too much, I usually under-write.

Appareantly, you don't need to understand the philosophy or psychology behind an author's theses to understand all of them...

Odd...

Pff.

I've got a 350-word book report due tomorrow. Not a bad assignment, but I chose a very bad book to do. Ah well. Won't take too long.

I suppose I should give you my opinion of the Harry Potter movie.

It was good. Could've been better, but it was good, given that it was already two and a half hours long. I liked the slight change of the zoo scene, having Dudley fall into the snake's habitat as it left,then the glass coming back. Dudley deserved it. Especially book Dud;ey. Movie Susley was cruel, but wasn't given enough time onscreen to be as bratty or cruel as book Dudley.

I feel sorry for movie Neville. He was hardly there. He had his important part for getting points for the house cup, but the impact of it is somewhat lost when we don't know that he's dismal in all his classes and such. The only thing we know he's bad at is flying.

And Almost no actual learning was shown, and we don't even know what McGonagall teaches. That was kinda upsetting. I was looking forward to seeing the first-years starting to try magic and not really doing well, and I wasnted to see some of the stuff they did.

Snape's class was almost completely cut, so we didn't get much of Snape's... Snape-ness.

I thought quidditch was interesting in the books, but the movie showed me just why it's the big wizarding sport. I'd kill to play quidditch just once.

And Oliver Wood is hot! He's the first person to warrant fanboy reaction from me. And quite deservedly so, mind you. He's hot, has a Scottish accent, struggled to contain a bludger while in tight pants, thereby giving a nice view of his ass... etc.

But that's quite different from my Eric-hanyaan, so don't think I've given up there.

Back to the movie, they cut Hermione finding the right potions at the end. They compensated by slightly changing the devil's snare scene into a Hermione success worthy of 50 points, and moved the joke at Hermione's expence ("ARE YOU A WITCH OR NOT?") to one at Ron's expense. ("Good thing I didn't panic." Watch the movie if you don't understand.)

Voldemort tempting Harry was a good addition. Doesn't change the characters at all, but it show's Voldemort's evilness well.

I can't wait for the next movie. (And book.)

Oh yeah, I've still got the main reccurring theme stuck in my head. The movie had some very good music.

Also new in my life is my decision that as soon as my older brother goes to college, I'm going to come out at school. If he weren't in school now where the information would reach him, which I don't want it to do, seeing as how he's a somewhat bigoted bastard at times, I'd already be out.

I'm thinking band camp will be a good time, unless he goes to a college with a really late (relative) start of courses, like OSU. I'll at least have that weight off my chest. I'll probably still have the Eric thing, but at least people'll know I'm gay.

All US History classes watched "Glory" today in the auditorium.

Good movie, that is.

Plus, I got out of thre classes, one being English. I was also glad to get out of keyboarding, because I can type fine, and don't really care to format reports.

Back to "Glory," there was a nice suble makeup effect that I don't know if anyone else noticed, but at the beginning of the movie, Shaw looks young, inexperienced, somewhat naive, and a little cute. By the end of the movie he looks... sorta ragged, somehow older, like he's been through hell. And not as cute.

And then I found out he was played by Matthew Broderic, and am kicking myself for ever finding him cute, because I've seen the "Inspector Gadget" movie.

My school needs Honors History. Badly.

The department head thinks that mixing honors and non-honors students will speed up the non-honors students.

It doesn't. At all. All it does is slow down the honors students and annnoy me when we get put into groups for projects.

For example, this past weekend I was working on a Powerpoint presentation as part of the classwork. We did them in groups. I did most of the work, willingly. I put together the presentation, and wrote out the notes to read as it was presented. OR at least I will. It's due next Monday.

In the class time we were given, one of the other group members actually worked. She found good websites for information on our topic, and maps. It was a big help. One of the other group members gave me a couple sentence fragments which I couldn't use, thinking he was helping. I don't even remember who the last member of my group is, he did so little. (Read: nothing)

How fun...
