Although, I did have fun. I ate, I slept, I made pie, I cleaned, I saw RENT...all in all, it was an excellent weekend. More later. Just can't concentrate.
And now I present with random ramblings of my life.
Coincidentally enough, my favorite pair of sunglasses are Oscar de la Renta-tortoise shell.
Honestly, was there any doubt?
luna_corrona's Halloween party:
also_wik dressed as a dog.
cdozo dressed as a bottle of Pentoft.
giaangel dressed as the Cardinal of Red Pine, and it suited them disturbingly well.
handofgod dressed as a surprise, though it looked more like a linebacker for the Jets.
mjechta_maya dressed as Michelle Branch.
oddobsession didn't dress up, spoilsport.
oozyrat didn't even show up and doesn't get any candy.
Throw your own party at the Hallomeme!

Wow. It's been a really long time since I've updated. I kind of don't remember how to do this.
So, I'm well into my junior year, and I really must start out by saying that I HATE CHEMISTRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Okay, it's not that I hate it, it's just...well, it sucks. And Mr. Kretzmeier's a card. Everything else is hunky-dory, though.
I'm the Narrorator in Joseph. Actually, I'm one of two. This other girl got the other half of the job, but you know, I'm just glad that the crappy politics at my school didn't prevent me from getting a part that I've wanted since I was a little girl. *sniff sniff* Of course, even though it's weeks later, I'm still pretty pissed of that a friend of mine didn't get one of the Narrorater parts. Her singing kicks ass, and they didn't even call her back! Whatever, she's way better than that music department; just watch. I bet she's a huge Broadway star one day, and Mr. Murry from the Wiggles (Mr. V, for those of you who don't have children or cousins. Seriouly, look up Murray on the web sometime. It looks just like him. Anyway, he's just gonna crap himself when VH1 comes to interview him. "Oh...gee, I wish I'd given her her rightful place in Varsity now. Gosh-golly."
Okay, I'm off the soapbox.
Hey! ABC! Get off your asses and put Homefront back on the air, or at least release it on DVD for the rest of us. That's one of the most well-loved shows in the history of television and the American Broadcasting Company murdered it. Grrr. And I'll never forgive NBC for getting rid of Homicide, although, I guess I can't complain because my favorite part of that show was Detective Munch, and I can watch him on Law and Order: SVU.
Lots of things have happened since I last posted. I:
*Attended Wicked in Chicago and got my picture taken with Mr. Ben Vereen;
*Recieved an iPod Nano (now if only I could configure it with i Bish ;) ) ;
So I'm first chair in orchestra again. No one knows how absolutley THRILLED that makes me, because I never make a big deal about it when I lose the chair, but it is a huge deal because I adore being concertmisstress. It just kicks serious arse. Not that we have a huge orchestra program at my school (like, non-existant compared to the choir), but it's still nice to be able to tell people that you're the concertmisstress.
Okay, I'm almost done downloading "Pride & Prejudice" for my iPod, and then my Beef Bourgouinonne will be done (or however the hell you spell it), so I've gotta go. Oh, I do love that Mr. Darcy. Well, now that I've blown the proverbial cobwebs off of my LJ, look for updates at least once a week. Hah, who am I kidding? If I update before the musical, I'll be suprised. Anyway, have fun, don't do drugs, and vote for Mayor White! (Sorry, Doug Funnie reference.) Night, all!
P.S. ABC!!!!!!!!!!! BRING BACK FREAKIN' HOMEFRONT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm sorry, but I love Kyle Chandler and I'm thinking of changing my name to Justice Metcalf Munch Sorrenson Lupin-Darcy. The 3rd.
I almost forgot! I got tagged by oddobsession, so...
Name six songs that you are currently digging. It doesn't matter what genre they are from, whether they have words or even if they're any good but they must be songs you're really enjoying right now. Post these instructions and then list the six artists and the songs in your LiveJournal. Then tag six other people to see what they're listening to.
Soo...(in random order)...
1. Music of the Night (luffs the michael)
2. Be Our Guest (also luffs the jerry orbach)
3. You'll See Boys (my favorite from rent)
4. Listen to Your Heart (I know. I know)
5. Hellfire in the Holyland (Michael McDermott-because we all need hot Irish guy rock)
6. The I -Hate- Nymphadora- Tonks- Because- She- Stole- My- Man -and- I'm- Going- To- Kill- Her- Because- Remie- Is- Mine Waltz. (an original composition.)
Oh, fine, the last one was a joke. Actually, number six is New York State of Mind, by Billy Joel, which is my favorite song of all time.
And now, drumroll please....*clears throat*....
I, luna_corrona, do hereby tag:
So comment, darlings!
So, we're leaving Texas on Sunday. It seems so strange; my aunt and uncle have lived down here for something like six years, and now...well, I suppose I may still come to visit my other aunt and uncle, but they'll more likely come to Indiana. I know I bitch and complain about Texas, but there are some definite things I'll miss. I'll miss Kerrville, even though I only went once. I'll miss HEB. I'll miss cdozo and G. And I'll miss having a Starbucks in every grocery store.
At the same time, there are some things about Texas that sorta suck. For example, the rain. It's freakin' weird...give warning before a storm starts! And water sits on top of the highway here after a storm. It's truly bizzare.
So, I watched the third Broadway's Lost/Hidden/Stolen/Too Embarassing to Televise Treasures on PBS the other night. It was interesting; I had no idea what Ethel Merman looked like. Some people tell me I should look to her for inspiration, since she's the greatest belter of our times and whatnot. But part of me is like...how did you not have nodes? Maybe she did; maybe she would have developed them if she'd lived longer.
So my mom told me she talked to a certain mother in the Jeff music department the other day, and they were upset about us doing Joseph because a certain rival of the mother's son is assured the lead role. And I was like, "People. It's high school. If you can't take the pressure in a HIGH SCHOOL production, then you'd better think twice about wanting to move to New York." Honestly, y'all think politics are bad now? We're not even an Equity house.
On a lighter note...
I'm going to see my best friend since kindergarten, Alx, on Sunday. She moved to Arizona in 6th grade and now lives in Oklahoma City. We're going to have dinner and possibly shop or see a movie. The thing is, we've kept regular contact since she moved in 6th grade, via e-mail, im, and phone calls. But I haven't seen her for five years. So I want to bring her a present, but I have no idea what. I don't what kind of music or movies she's into these days, and if I ask her that'll be a bit obvious. Anyone have any suggestions? A gift for my best friend, yet I haven't seen her in five years and don't know what she likes...yeah.
Well, take care, y'all.
p.s. I'll miss Blue Bell too. But Haagen-Daazs was sent from the Lord.
It's been a while, hasn't it? Luckily, I personally know most of my LiveJournal friends, so I can call y'all. Plus, I got AOL Instant Messenger a couple of weeks ago. I really feel in touch with the world. Yeah, I thought that was corny too.
So, Beau, if you can read this, I really hope things went well in court. I was thinking good thoughts toward you today. I hope you felt the vibes, love ;). Call me.
I'd just like to say for the record that I agree with Sarah and totally hate B'Way elitists. It's a little bit ridiculous to be forming CLIQUES about the whole thing. And, Broadway is dying. There was a time when a new movie in Hollywood meant nothing if it wasn't a musical. There was a time when movie execs were devoted to bringing the New York stage to the screen, for the populace that isn't so fortunate to live in the greatest city in the world. (I'm sorry, Daddy, but New York kicks Boston's ass, takes its lunch money and makes it cry. And don't you talk to me about no Red Sox, got it? Hey, my dad doesn't have an LJ. That I know of...) Anyway, as I was saying, there was a time when the biggest stars in Hollywood had, to quote Linda Richman of "Coffee Talk," voices like "buttah". Judy Garland, Frank Sinatra...and in the 50's, your resident black man was Satchmo or it was no one!
I may be to young to reminisce about the good old days, but I'm astute enough to feel cheated that I didn't get to live in them. There is hope, though. I mean, Evita broke down a lot of barriers. Chicago was a smash, commercially and Oscar-wise. Phantom...well, say what you want about moviephans, and I do agree, being Michael Crawford born and bred. But the 2004 movie version of Phantom DID bring a lot of fans to the show that wouldn't have been there before, and the ones who weren't swooning over Emmy/Gerry/Patrick were inspired to check out ALW's other shows. It looks like the B'Way era in Hollywood may be coming back with "RENT", which has done good in my book so far by keeping most of the original cast intact. And that Joanne girl rocks my socks. Did anyone see her on the "Today Show" today? That girl's voice!
The "Coffee-Talk"in', Onstar agent, ordained babbler, belting, recovering Broadway/Regency-era/General Hospital/shopping/Michael Crawford/Degrassi: the Next Generation-It Goes There/really hot British Shapeshifters addict.
I left out Mr. Darcy, but I'm sure you all added him in for me.
By the way, y'all can call me Luna.
Does anyone actually know what a sticky wicket it? I think it's something naughty...I just heard it on West Wing, so you know...Um...not a lot to report...I hope that Mo's having fun in Iowa. My aunt just came back from Iowa today. She flies home every weekend to see Hunter and my uncle. Oh, I'm hungry!
So...I'm really trying to think of something interesting to say...nope. I had an interesting dream last night. I dreamt that Lestat and I were on this tower, and then this werewolf (wonder who?!) was fighting him for me. This is the kind of dream that I like to have. Not, say, like the Mr. Boswell dream of so long ago...yeah, I don't want to post that because I want people to still actually READ my LiveJournal.
I was watching West Wing last night, and then I decided to watch C-SPAN 2. They were showing a House Vote on the Energy Policy of 2005, which was just ticking me off, because it was going to mean backstop authority in regards to the FERC, not to mention there were mandatory renewable portfolio standards. And then, they were getting all caught up in the whole parlimentary procedure of the whole thing. It was like "Oh, I yield to you." "Oh, I already yielded to you" "I'm the freakin' chariman, I'll do the yielding!" It's like, buy Robert's Rules of Order and shut the hell up, you know? The other good thing was that it was going to repeal the Public Utility Holding Company Act. This is the same crap that happened back in 2003, though, so I shouldn't be suprised, I guess.
I just read all that...I'm such a dork. I need a life. People, I actually understand, and enjoy watching, C-Span. Yeah, we have a problem. I've watched wayyy too much West Wing. I'm a nervous hoolalia.
