PICTURES OF MY KITTEN!!
We got her at the end of June and it's October now (duh) so she's grown a LOT. But you get the idea.
Her name is PORTIA DAKOTA PENKALA
PORTIA after the character from Merchant of Venice, DAKOTA after a character of Erin's who is an absolute spaz, and PENKALA because of her eyes (they look like his now).
Okay, so now that that's done...AN IDEAL HUSBAND
Now ya'll get an update on the theatre company so far this school year. For our fall play this year we are doing An Ideal Husband by Oscar Wilde. I aplaud those of you who have read it. For those who haven't, it is a brilliant satire of London society in the last 1800's. Blackmail, lies, secrets, scandal... SO much fun. This show is seriously for the girls. We are LOVING IT!
Now, for those of you who know the play (or the movie) I am playing Lady Markby. SHe has a much bigger rols in the play than in the movie. In the movie you only see her once. But in the play I am on stage a LOT. And I have been instructed to play the character like Mrs. Jennings from Sense and Sensibility. So... It's a lot of fun. I get to be comic relief for once (I was supposed to be in Little Shop, but I had to be taken out because of grades and everything... :P)
Anyway... The play is going along very smothly. (yay!) And I have just found out that next Friday the ENTIRE cast will be taking a ride up to Providence Collge for a costume fitting. The theatre department at PC is making our costumes. I'm all excited now because I cannot WAIT to see those dresses. They are going to be AMAZING! *bounces*The Summer
Okay, so my summer was pretty busy. I was in Romeo and Juliet
this summer so I was at the school ALL the time. It wasn't a school production, but our school director CS is part of this company called the New Place Players. And this summer they did R&J. So I auditioned. And I ALMOST got cast as the Nurse. But I ended up playing a couple of smaller roles instead. No biggie. It was still fun. :D
I went to King Richard's Faire
twice this year. Once with my dad and my brothers and then once with Erin and Rabbs. I got to dress up when I went the second time (it's a medieval fair). And there's this band called The Lost Boys... They kick ass. They wear kilts. And Erin, Rabbs, and I are groupies. Dead serious. They LOVE us.HP7
. Yeah, I was a nerd (again) and went at midnight to get my book. I dressed up again too. I was a Hufflepuff, Erin was a Slytherin, Katie was a Ravenclaw, and Kimmie was a Gryffindor. Kimmie was PMSing so she was kinda bitchy, but it was SOOO worth it. I had my video camera on for a good chunk of the time. And we took TONS of pics. If you guys want, I can post those too.
And obviously I got my kitten this summer. And I got to name her. She's unofficially mine. Mum said it, but the boys aren't supposed to know. But, when Erin and I get an appartment in NYC, I get to bring Portia with me. :D
I turned seventeen
on August 28th of this year. No big deal really. Erin called me at midnight to sing happy birthday. Which is a big deal, 'cause she NEVER sings. And that was about all that happened. I didn't get any big presents or anything. Except for mum taking me and Erin to NYC to see RENT!!!!! WITH ADAM PASCAL AND ANTHOMNY RAPP!!!!! We were so wound up. We didn't sleep AT ALL the night before. My mum didn't come to see the show this time, but oh well. It we her loss. We were sitting in the VERY LAST row in the theatre and we discovered that there really are NO bad seats in the Nederlander. Those were actually better seats than my orchestra seats from last time, I think.
The show was sooooooo fucking AMAZING. We were blown away. And driven to tears MANY times. One Song Glory, Another Day, Will I?, Seasons of Love, Without You, Seasons of Love B, I'll Cover You (Reprise), Halloween, Goodbye Love, What You Own (my favourite song with the two original cast members, it was a HUGE emotional moment, as was Halloween (duh)), and the whole ending (especailly Your Eyes). Yeah, we felt kind of pathetic, but that's okay. It was so worth it.
And remember how I said I wanted to see Harley Jay? Well, we did see him. But not on stage. He was sitting in the audience a handfull of rows in front of us. We kind of wanted to go over there and ask for his autograph, but we didn't want to seem weird and obsessive or anything. That would have been weird.
And Erin got me the BEST borthday present EVER. Next to the trip to Rent and my video camera. She elbowed her way through the crowd at the stage door to get me Anthony Rapp's autograph! And it says "Happy Birthday" too. I nearly died. And I could NOT stop thanking her.
So, last night we went out for dinner to celebrate the birthday of my dad and his mum (they have the same birthday). The group consisted of me, my two brothers, my dad, my grandparents, my dad's sister, and my two kick ass cousins (they're both amazing). Unfortunately Uncle Ernie didn't come too. :( But anyway... The night was great until we went back out to the car and found dad's two passenger side windows smashed in. His camera and laptop were gone, as well as my little brother Scott's school backpack. And last night was the raniest day we have had in a month. So it sucked. So now my dad is driving my grandfather's Lincoln Towncar. *makes a face*
And I think that's everything...
Ooh! When I saw the Lost Boys for the third time on that first day, one of them, String, kissed me on the lips. That was my first non-gay guy kiss. :D And I am proud of it. *nerd*
Okay, first thing on the agenda. Mey wanted them, so here they are...
