Just so you know, this is the “Gone With the Wind” of LJ posts… or should I say… “The Atlas Shrugged” of LJ posts. XD
I had a quite productive day today, I’m proud to say.
I finally learnt that bugger of a solo in Urban today, and it makes me feel nice. We had to teach this horrid little girl who’s new this year though. That sucked because, well… she sucks. And she has these airs about her where you can tell she doesn’t think she needs help. But I won’t launch into a full scale rant about that, as it would take all night.
I bought the original cast record of “A Chorus Line” yesterday. It’s AMAZING.
Today I was dancing around my room to it, doing high kicks and such… Then I kicked too hard and fell flat on my back. It was really, really, really funny. I tried to laugh, but I didn’t have the breath to XP.
My mother tried to tell me today that we were going to have to buy me some size 5 pants. I cried. I know it isn’t big, its just… I’ve been in a one for two years. But then this summer that one morphed into a two, and a three, and now a five? NO. So I decided to do a diet. And then I went home and ate two cookies and a small bag of chips. I guess the problem is that I don’t have any self control. Like, at all.
So last night I watched a bit of Driving Miss Daisy (Just enough to see Patti’s face pass across the screen, because then my friend switched it to “Big Brother”) and I was like “SQUEE! It’s Driving Miss Daisy! That has Patti in it!”. And then I looked across the room and noticed a box of DVDs and Cassette tapes. And there, lying on its side, in all its unopened glory was “The Jerk”. As in, STEVE MARTIN AND BERNADETTE PETERS! So I scooped it up and asked Kayla’s mom if I could borrow it, because I still haven’t seen it (I Tivoed it but it didn’t capture sound… Weird, right?) And as soon as I type this entry, but before I actually post it (There’s a little time before my parents go to bed) I am sooo going to watch it.
I read TONS of Helen’s book this afternoon. Went straight from page 91 this morning to 242 tonight. It’s so enjoyable! I guess its because I am
falling more in love becoming more obsessed with her everyday, but I always smile when a new fact I didn’t know before is unveiled. I have a feeling I will be like this when Patti’s memoir comes out. I’m BEYONDDDD excited for that. My hopes are that she will do a book signing in Dallas. My more practical hopes are that she’ll do a book signing in New York and I’ll be able to get there to have her sign my copy. (Note to self: Try really hard not to faint if this happens)
And speaking of Gypsy…..
OMG! The CD comes out in just a few short (or for me, dreadfully long) weeks. I have waited ALL SUMMER for this CD.
Tracks I Am Most Excited About?
-Let Me Entertain You (The Gypsy Strip)
-You’ll Never Get Away From Me
-You Gotta Get A Gimmick
I keep playing Patti/Boyd’s version of “You’ll Never Get Away from Me” in my head (I vaguely remember it from the bootleg, which I think I will now watch that scene, LOL. After my CD my band director gave me to borrow finishes importing into itunes, that is), and it’s the most magnificent thing of like ever.
And now a small rave about our marching band music. I LOVEEEE IT. Now that I can play it, I have fallen in love with our show. I just might upload it here in a bit, being as its only three songs and all. And if you wanna download it, cool. If not, I’m sorry, but you’re missing out. It’s very cool. In case I haven’t mentioned it, (I can’t remember if I did our not.) It’s from the show “La Nouba” which is a production of Cirque du Soleil. I’m not sure who the people on the recording are, but we almost sound like that.
A RAVE ABOUT OUR BAND, PERIOD: We rock. I know at some schools its really nerdy to be in band; at Arp it’s not like that at all. Loads of the cool people are in band. The simple reason? Our band is actually good. Our matching routines are award winning, our director is really funny, and band buses make for… well, fun stuff (don’t worry, not me. I’m more of a ‘sit in the corner and listen to my ipod on the bus’ kind of girl) ;).
Today (this morning before band) Miss Betty picked me up from Kayla’s house and we moseyed on down to the local Barnes & Noble book sellers.
Wow. I think this has been the easiest ramble I’ve made in a while. Here lately I’ve been having to think of things to write about, but today it all just sort of spilled out. (Haha, now I’m rambling ABOUT rambling.)
Well, I may or may not post later. (Maybe I'll do a meme)
If you want the music, comment. :)
