Jenny is another reason, but that's a given, y/y? ♥
Also, I went on YouTube looking for something, and they're featuring Sesame Street for its fortieth anniversary.
THIS IS HOW WE ROLL.
Seriously, man, I grew up on that stuff, and it's still awesome. :3
...no, I'm not trying to be nostalgic-cute; they put in so much stuff for the parents that it's hilarious now. XD
Anyway, the reason I was on YouTube was so that I could spend an hour trying not to die laughing watching every single installment of Autotune the News.
My personal favorites are #6 and #8.
Um, I also finally cracked and started the Merlin fic I kept thinking about. I'm liking it so far. It's probably the first outright angsty Merlin thing I've ever written. XD
I also got a small shock-of-my-life today in Theater 11 -- Professor Chris had almost nothing but good things to say about the monologue I did on Friday, which was utterly bizarre, because I dropped lines, forgot lines and had a full five-second pause while I remembered, and almost entirely winged it, because I honestly hadn't had time to rehearse enough. He's always on us about plotting out every moment of the physicality, because the rest tends to fall into place with the score, and I hadn't done shit of that.
I guess the old channel-real-life-nervousness-into-stron
In other theater news, we don't have class until a week from Wednesday (Veterans Day = national holiday, then Prof Chris is going to be at a conference Friday and Monday), when we do the monologues again. Then that Friday, we have to do the new scenes we got today.
...did I sign up for this, knowing very well what I was getting into. XD
Anyway, if anyone's heard of the play Proof, that's what Jon (the same Jon whom I voluntarily socialized with in September) and I are doing a scene of our choice from. Flipping through when we first got the play, I was like, "Okay, here's a scene where Hal and Catherine meet... here's one where they make out six times... here's one where they wake up the morning after... We're doing the first scene, Jon." Jon's like, "...good plan."
Anyway-anyway, the trouble is going to be playing Catherine, rather than playing Hilary-from-last-year-as-Catherine, since she and this girl Eliza did a really excellent scene from Proof in Theater 10.
Since Catherine is an antisocial mathematical genius, I'm thinking I'll approach it from a sort of arrogance-of-intelligence angle, complicated by the fact that no one in this play ever thinks she's as smart as she is. WOE. ANGUISH. HUMANITY.
At least I'm not a once-hooker ex-crackhead this time? :D? :D? :D?
...yeah, I got nothin'.
Oh, except that Professor Edwards, my dystopia seminar teacher, is just a doll. I begged her for a rec letter today, because last semester's Milton teacher has honestly disappeared into thin air, and she was just too sweet. :3 She's seriously adorable; she's tiny and blonde and a little bit awkward and really smart and sometimes says utterly outlandish things. XD
ANYWAY. Point is, today was pretty legit. ♥
