Damn it, you guys, I swear, the second I decide to be a lazyass and take a day away from LJ, you ALL go and update IMMEDIATELY. :P CONSPIRACY, I SAY. I'm onto you lot. O____O

Up and down today. No good reason why.

Oh, wait, there might well be.

That "I hope this is allergies" on Tuesday... was not allergies. The thing I'm actually the most pissed-off about is that I had a helluva good thing going -- I haven't been sick at all this year, until... now. Figures that my roommate and her germs attack within thirty days of the school year being over. So much for my world record. D:

Anyway, now our shared bedroom is a Pit of Germs, and she's still worse-off, but we both kind of sound like we're dying. IT'S CHARMING. 8D

The weather cooled down a lot, though, which is very nice. I wore my girl!Matt striped sweater and Mello warm jacket with the fake-fur-lined hood. ^^

Beyond the fangirl connotations, they also happen to be warm and comfortable. HONEST. XD

Soooo... yesterday. Yesterday, I was hit with Sick, but I went to class and rocked the shit out of my monologue anyway. >D People were... mostly speechless (*preens*), though part of that was probably because they knew that class was about thirty seconds from over, and any comments they made would cut into their escape time (*preens a little less*). XD But my teacher didn't have much to critique, so that made me happy. ^^

Also, I have discovered that when I'm performing alone, or at least performing monologues, I shake a lot. Like, my hands just shake, uncontrollably. XD Which really fucks with the dramatic gesture part of the program, which is mandatory if you're me. :P

Then again, for this monologue, it actually helped, but hey. XD I think I'm okay with scenes and so on (though I felt physically sick offstage before the first performance of Julius Caesar a few years ago, but I think that had more to with it being the first time I'd been on stage since the third grade, when I missed a line and screwed up the play XD) because it's a world. The whole point is throwing the fourth wall between you and the audience, whereas a monologue is for them and to them.

So it's like public speaking, except that you're not quite you. XD

Anyway, then I wrote a six-page paper.

jenwryn, if you can find one on BookMooch, you must get yourself a copy of Slaughter City by Naomi Wallace. I really just think you would LOVE THAT PLAY. So if you see it... Yeah. XD

Dear Script Frenzy,

Please write your own climax because I'm definitely not doing it, and that's a problem.


O HAI, a kink meme. You will never be able to tell which one I wrote at one in the morning last night. EVER. Because it's certainly not the only Death Note one so far, or anything. XD

(And Jenny, my dear-sweet lovely, I do so appreciate the promotion to God. :P I think my first act after my inauguration will be adding more hours to the day so that I can find time to write that pairing. XD)

Ehh, interested parties will be glad to learn that I wrote the next chapter of "Chocolate Always Loves You Back" today. The good news is that something actually happens; the bad news is that the humor probably suffers for it. I pretty much blow at writing any kind of tension other than the Unresolved Sexual kind, true story.

But Aizawa does get to be sadistic again, so that's nice.

Umm... this is still one of my favorite songs in the entire universe, but they never have it in the iTunes store. Or they didn't the last time I binged on it. I need to get Limewire again and stop paying artists for their music. XD


Oh, and... Peep Art III and Peep Art IV. I swear I dropped a life around here somewhere...

In the meantime, I'm going to make myself some fucking tea.

If I still feel crappy this weekend, I bet my mommy will make me soup. ♥

**EDIT** ALSO, YOU GUYS. eltea made the greatest Death Note AMV in ever a little while back, and she finally posted it. If you aren't into DN, don't watch (epic spoilers!), but if you are and don't watch it, we can't be friends anymore. 8D

Feeling: crappycrappy

Ahem. Get better! This broccoli is sending out health vibes.

Cupcake jars ftw! XD My roommate keeps seashells in hers, as I discovered. XD Her Tinkerbell music box might be my next prop, oh dear. XD

Thank you! XD Healthy broccoli much appreciated. :D

I used to keep lemondrops in mine, but they were too sticky.

YOU ARE SO TOTALLY NOT. XD And I was bitching about it on the phone to eltea like two hours before, so it wasn't like I was dying to talk about my germs or anything. XD

*removes all lamps and other Dobby-approved wounding objects from the vicinity* XD

*slurps tea gratefully!* 8D

...I'm still catching up with my semester, egads. XD I keep dropping old things in order to keep up with new ones; it's all insane and very stupid of me. XD

Ahhhhh, I love being onstage. Attention whore? ME? 8D Nobody really endorses voice acting around here, that I know of, though I would really love to get into it if, by some miracle, there happened to be a market for my voice. :P Public speaking destroys me completely, but for some reason acting is different -- which I think is because, like I was sort-of-mentioning to my Theater 10 teacher, acting involves a lot of character work, and that's one of my favorite things about writing, as we know. :D And I'm such an escapist that moving around in this fantasy world, beyond just looking at it from the audience, is a total rush. XD

And. Y'know. Attention whore. 8D

It's totally different to read porn to your computer screen and to be outspoken in public. Come on, everyone knows that! XD

*glomps, pretty muuuuch* 8D

♥ :D

I think... mine have always been collaborative, because it was always a story shared with my brother, so... audience was the next step, in a lot of ways. XD idk, I'm probably just pulling a super-Freud on myself again. XD

I hope you feel better!

"And there was much rejoicing" Yaaaaaayyy...

I'm working on it! My mom made soup; that was nice. XD

Oh no to being sick! :( Ugh, I'm just glad that this whole year of haze and weird weather hasn't had that much of a physical effect on me yet. *touches wood anyhow*

Hope you feel better soon darling :)

Damn it, you guys, I swear, the second I decide to be a lazyass and take a day away from LJ, you ALL go and update IMMEDIATELY. :P CONSPIRACY, I SAY. I'm onto you lot. O____O


I remember having to do a monologue as Mr. Wickham from Pride and Prejudice for an interview into this one school. I...was never more nervous than I was that day. XD Hands shaking? Check. Legs trembling? Check. FELT LIKE I WAS GOING TO HYPERVENTILATE IF I DIDN'T KEEP READING?? HELL YES!!! XD

But hey, you did it, right? :) And if there are any more in the future, I send tonnes of good karma your way!! :D

*hugs you and hopes you feel better soon*

*pets* And yeah, my immune system is pretty kickass, but I usually get sick once-or-so a year. Or I did in high school. And the dorm last year got me sick like four times. XD So I guess I'll just SUCK IT UP. 8D

Thank you nonetheless, of course. ^^

You're exempt, of course. :P

Noes!! D: Me it seems to be... mostly the hands. XD And I mean, I know I know the lines (except when I don't XD), but... augh, people, augh. XD And yeah, you just have to barrel through it, and then it's over! XD

I have to do it again next Wednesday, and then again the Wednesday after that. :P Because that is how we roll in Theater 10. XD But it's cool; the stakes of messing up in this class are Get Sympathy From Class, as opposed to Screw Up a Professional Shakespeare Show, which was what would have happened in my last theater experience. 8D

*hugs and coughs piteously* XD

Rex: DN - light + you just lost the gameicequeenrex on April 25th, 2009 06:06 am (UTC)
Yay to awesome immune systems! :D I'm pretty fond of mine myself because I hardly get sick. But when I do, it's like *gaaaaah dies* If you know what I mean. ^^;;

I'm always nervous before the performance, but somehow I manage to pull it off fine. Like whenever I have to sing in front of a large crowd, I'm shaking to the ends of the Earth but as soon as it kicks off, I'm all "Oh, yay, this is easy now..." XD Nerves, what can you do about them? :P

Ooh, good luck for each of those! :D I'm sure you'll do great because...you're just great like that. :)

*sends good wishes and good karma* ♥
Vitamin C: Misatierfal on April 26th, 2009 04:02 am (UTC)
Mine is generally pretty hardcore, but sometimes it gives out. XD

It's one of those things where... you do it because you DO. The show goes on! :D

Thank youuuu! ^^ ♥

Theoretically, I'll be better before finals, since my first one is the 19th, but... I'm still annoyed. XD And thank you! *accepts* ^^;

...that's a whole lot cooler than our "cooled down," no surprise there. XD

Ha, mine was pure nerves; no caffeine required! XD

Glad to be of service!! 8D
richelle2972richelle2972 on April 24th, 2009 07:13 pm (UTC)
Oh noes! I hope you feel better soon! : (

Congrats on your monologue! I've found that I get really shy when I have to be onstage at all. I don't want to do anything that would make me look stupid so I'll do what the director tells me to do, but nothing more. XP I need to learn to fix that...

That is a good song! It's so lame that iTunes doesn't have it.

I love your peep art! : ) Peep Art IV made me laugh so hard.
Vitamin C: Misatierfal on April 25th, 2009 02:51 am (UTC)
I'm actually really lucky so far; the symptoms are all present, but I don't feel shitty as much. I'm just acting sick, mostly. XD

IT'S TOUGH. o__o And Th10 is a workshoppy thing, so you're encouraged to do crazy shit. XD Like, what April always says is, "I dare you to make me tell you to take it down" as far as going in extreme directions. XD Which is different, in a play, when you're getting directed to fit a person's vision, you know? :)

iTunes is for teh lose. XD Maybe I'll try to get my brother to download it for me. XD

Yay!! :D I had fun. XD
richelle2972richelle2972 on April 25th, 2009 06:44 pm (UTC)
Yeah...I couldn't do your Theater 10 class. XP If no one I knew was watching I might be more inclined to do crazy things, but with everyone watching...I just can't make myself do that. I've found that eating lots of sugar before going to rehearsal helps. ; )
Vitamin C: Improving Lifetierfal on April 26th, 2009 04:24 am (UTC)
I had a lot of trouble working on it with my partner, because I was too worried about looking silly, but I jacked it up in the mirror until I liked it and then just bulldozed through in class. XD It's tough to forget about presenting yourself to look/sound/be a certain way. XD

And ohhh, sugar helps EVERYTHING. :d
marissaabitofadork7 on April 24th, 2009 07:34 pm (UTC)
Sick? Yuck. No want, please. You must be feeling so ugh. So I hope you feel better soon. :-)

I like it when my mommy makes me soup, and it usually helps. It's like MAGIC! XD

I think my first act after my inauguration will be adding more hours to the day so that I can find time to write that pairing.

Make your second act to send your f-list a nice, big thing of chocolates, yeah? I like chocolate. And I think it would considerably brighten their day. XD

Vitamin C: Improving Lifetierfal on April 25th, 2009 02:54 am (UTC)
I'm not actually feeling too bad, at least not as terribly hazy/phlegmy/gross as I usually do, but the slow death by coughing and sneezing bit is getting old... so thank you! ^^;

YES. It is magical. 8D

That will definitely be my second act! :D

marissaabitofadork7 on April 25th, 2009 02:49 pm (UTC)
I'm glad you're feeling not too bad. But yeah, you could probably do without the old sneezing and coughing yourself to death part.

I like magic. XD

YAY! *does happy dance*

Emma Daiou: oh shitemmadaiou28 on April 25th, 2009 03:07 am (UTC)
There is no conspiracy. You see nothing. NOTHING. >_>;

Speaking of seeing nothing, I totally could not spot which of the kink meme thingies was yours. Not at all. I rather liked it though. 8D

*sends soup and lots of vitamin C*

I shall march off to watch that AMV! *determined face*

.....as soon as I find my flippin' headphones!
Vitamin C: Charles - Bluetierfal on April 25th, 2009 03:36 am (UTC)
Hahaha, I'm having Ides of March flashbacks here. XD

I'm glad you enjoyed the thing I obviously did not write! 8D

*devours them and glomps you, possibly not at the same time* XD

Nyaaa get better!! D:
No no, you are going to write that SF, because I want to read it >D
Lol, I shake too in particular situation, can't help it! Or even better, have to burp XD WHICH YES IT'S A PROBLEM especially when you're trying to sing in front of an audience ;;
Vitamin C: Charles - Bluetierfal on April 26th, 2009 04:19 am (UTC)
*kicks own immune system* XD

I'm... halfway through... and stuck... but I will finish it, if I have to beat myself with a blunt object to self-motivate. XD

Oh dear. I'm very glad I don't have that particular problem!! XD
