... :D  
So... tonight turned out really good for a lot of reasons. Primary among these was the fact that I decided that, after paying two hundred dollars to send my GRE scores to my other ten schools, I was entitled not to do shit (excepting a little bit of homework... goody-two-shoes, me?) for the rest of the evening.

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.


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-strong-acting-emotion trick worked again. XD

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.

The usual.

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. ♥

YAY! OMG. I love Autotune the News! XDDD

...and Sesame Street. Cookie Monster is my homeboy.

Good job with your monologue!!!! I still want to hear it!!! And for some reason whenever I read the word 'monologue' here, I picture you as a supervillain, enthusiastically detailing your plot to enslave humanity. XD But in a nice way.

I learned how to eat from that monster.

I'm gonna see if I can convince eltea to film it for me sometime, I think? Maybe? Sometime? Eventually? XD And lol, I kind of wish it was a supervillain monologue! XD

Ooh! Two kids in my class are (I think) doing that scene from Proof in my acting class! The teacher assigned it to them. It's entertaining to watch. Is it the one where she's trying to get him to hand over his backpack because she's convinced he's hiding one of her dad's notebooks in it?

Doing nothing is totally warranted in that situation. ;)

Dude, you will always be awesome ♥

Also, what is this Autotune thingo? I can't surf Youtube until the 18th, unless I want my Internet to be capped, so I shall have to rely on your explanation! *clings*

Ohhhh, so you know how some "singers"/"artists" couldn't hit a note in their own songs if their lives depended on it? And then they have that tinny adjuster thing that changes their voice to the right pitch on the computer? Some weird kids got a hold of an Auto-Tune machine and went about making newscasters, sportscasters, and political figures sing whatever they'd been saying, turned it into a bunch of bizarre songs, and stuck themselves in them in places. It's pretty hilarious, so check it when you've got internet back. :o

And HANG IN THERE until then! ♥
