Just to eat up time...

I'm listening to this over and over...

... whoa. The tenor part is high. *likes high tenor parts* Make 'em work for it.

I think my father is giving me his cold.

Still not done with art homework.

I think father gave me his cold. BAH.

Okay... so cool...

So, like... I usually listen to the radio in the car only. My station is 88.9 FM, the Alter-nation. I never change it, because I'm a big dork.

But... it's a commercial-free station (yay!) and they only occasionally say who does what song. Because they just run from one song to the next all happy and joyous-like. But it's infuriating, because sometimes I like a song so much that I want it. But I don't know the name. Right. Right?

Now they have this new thing on their website that lists what song is playing, what songs have been played, and which songs are coming up. Eee! It's so fun!

Oh yeah. And Harry Potter number 5 is coming out sometime in June...

About fucking time.

Oh and... exams went fine. 100% in Public Speaking (how...? O.o), A in art (uh... meh. I still have to work on it), and an A+ in Latin. *preens* It took me awhile to get my stride in Latin, but soon I was just like "blah, blah, Remus, Romulus, blah, blah" and I only made mistakes on two sentences. I put a reflexive pronoun in the wrong place and misidentified a sentence as not having any imbedded thingies. *groans* Very minor mistakes though.

Am still pissed off at my art exam though. There are a bunch of little things wrong with it and they all BUG me!

Maybe I'll go watch Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie be cute and goofy while I work on it some more.

Fwee!

Everclear on the radio! Eee!

... why isn't it "Volvo-Driving Soccer Mom"? >___< It's "Out of My Depth". Great song, but I want to hear the new one, dammit!

Ooooh... 'm gonna shoot Dominic. >_< "The final movie is going to break people's hearts. All the Fellowship are crushed, chewed up and ultimately spat out the other side. They're scarred forever by their journey." This actually made me want to cry. Garrr.

Oh, but this is good... 'One of the most amusing moments was during the press conference in the morning when this particular Australian media "supa sta" was dominating the conversation and asking inane questions. This little bleached blonde thing asked the actors if they had read the book. Hello...

Elijah Wood asked her if she had read the book and her response was "Erm, no, it had too many big words in it." Like a fox, Elijah retorted with: "Perhaps you should go and buy a dictionary and thesaurus and try again."'

Mmm. Very good boy. I wish I had more time to knock out a serious chunk of the trilogy. Maybe after the one-acts, I'll see if I can work lights for the spring play and just chill and read and draw up in the booth. Or something. I don't really need to act anymore, even though I'm almost positive Mrs. C. would give me a role.

In fact, I wish I had the time and energy to read many, many books that are sitting up in my room. Read and reread, actually. I haven't done a marathon Stephen King reading for years.

By the way, can anyone think of a movie that features elegant but animated [EDIT, YOU SMART ASSES: animated as in 'lively' not 'Disney'] older women? And when I say 'older', I mean 60 to 80 years old. I'm doing 'research' for my role because I don't think it's going as well as I'd like it to. Anya suggested renting Great Expectations... do any others come to mind? I was also thinking Dame Maggie Smith in Gosford Park or even in Harry Potter.

*pouts* She doesn't like the cane. We shall see.

Nnnnurk.

Writing actually drains me physically these days. How sad. I guess I'll never be a writer. *pokes her mother* I dunno.

Viggo/Elijah... thing. It's so filled with subdued emotion, I just want to cry.

No, I don't.
