So, starting on November 12th:
West Side Story was AMAZING. Just...*sputter* Okay, start from the beginning. It was a high school production, but every single dang one of those kids could sing AND act!! They had a full orchestra in the pit (about 75 kids JUST in the pit), about 200 kids in the cast total, and...it was fantastic. I was cringing slightly before the kid who played Tony sang, but the moment he opened his mouth I was scraping my jaw off the floor and going 'OH MY GOSH.' Everyone was amazing...I would LOVE to get a copy of that production.
Bernardo--perfect (looked like the movie version of Bernardo)
And the dancing was to die for. Absolutely gorgeous... *wibbles*
(Looking in the program there was a list of plays that they did all the way back to 1915. In 2006 they did Les Mis... almost two years before I was aware of its existence, GAH. *headdesk*)
GOSH, life suddenly seems to have just gotten even more insane. Two days ago I was lassoed into playing accompaniment music for a friend of mine who is auditioning for some sort of singing thing (brain-fart, it's not that I don't think it's important, I just can't think of what it's called), and I got the music two evenings ago. I'm playing it tomorrow. O_o AAACK.
Other things on my list of TTD (things to do) :
~Homework due Monday and Tues (20 thumbnails and an essay *twitch*)
~Get NaNo wordcount in (27000 and counting!)
~Finish one of my scrappy scarfs and start another
~Start getting my act and Christmas presents for other people together
May not look like much, but I also have a house to clean this afternoon, work at the gym this evening, and practice piano LATER this evening. AAAAGH.
My recording went off very well! It turned out that one of the songs wasn't needed, so I only had to play one song. That took a couple of hours this morning.
What else...Mom and I watched some 'celebrity roasts' tonight, the ones hosted by Dean Martin. MAN, those guys were brutal to each other! And a little, *ahem* off-color at times. *twitch* And I officially ate too much Chinese takout tonight. But it's so good... *drools* Breached 30,000 words tonight and clipped Javvie's nails (a feat in itself--and for the uninformed, Javvie is the dog). I thought about going to bed early but I'm not sure if I will. Maybe I'll watch 'The Matchmaker' :D
And as far as the last two days go...it's been raining nonstop, getting very cold, I made a book cover in photoshop for graphic design class, I breached 33,000 words in NaNo today, and I made a huge batch of cookies yesterday. They are AMAZING if I say so myself. XD And now, I'm going to continue writing on my NaNo and see if I can get some sketches in this afternoon.
