head hurts and I desperately need more money since apparently $173 for tickets (half of which I am paying) is “a lot of money” according to my mother who not only has recently acquired an iPhone but has also suggested a trip to the snow and is willing to pay $396 for a short course for me - I know it’s different and I know I’m being a selfish bitch but I’m paying half of it, it’s a reduced price AND we have been organising this for the past four days and NOW she starts her “maybe this won’t happen” phase - ARGH! This is so so so annoying I hate it >..
watched The Wizard of Oz today, I forgot how good it is. Really it’s pretty amazing considering it was made in 1939. Yes, get that - THIRTY-NINE! Hitler was still alive then! And yes, I may be the only person to put Hitler and The Wizard of Oz in the same blog but whatever.
It took me like 6 hours to watch it though cos family came over when I was literally 30-4minutes from the end and I was like “URGHHH!” but finally I finished it. And you know what? I actually think I got more enjoyment out of it having seen ‘Wicked’, it was fun drawing parallels and trying to figure out how both stories could and do fit together.
Anyway, I was supposed to be offline about 10 minutes ago but then I got sidetracked.
“So, you have green hands and yellow nails? (at which point I nod and say "Yeah") You’re a freak.”—My stepsister’s cousin-in-law, Katherine. She meant it in a nice way. Even though it did kinda make me go :( for a split second, but then I was like - I’MMA FREAK n_n YAYS!
Have ‘What Is This Feeling?’ from ‘Wicked’ stuck in my head - great song, I love it to bits, but I can’t sing it, and I don’t know all the words, and I don’t want to listen to the Broadway version because I’m too in love with the Australian production.
SIDE NOTE: Really want to have a musical day today with ‘Singing in the Rain’, ‘The Wizard of Oz’, ‘Some Like It Hot’ and ‘The Sound of Music’.
I love that despite my best efforts I am still a social retard/ outcast on social networking sites. I’m a social outcast in reality to I go to social networking sites to do something interesting… and nothing happens because everyone else is being social in reality and I’m left sitting in front of my computer mourning the fact that I have no one to talk to, nothing to do, almost no contact with the outside world and an even smaller amount of friends than I originally thought.
Don’t mind this, I’m just complaining.
BTW, I found out today that I left my English book at school (I thought it was at home) and therefore can’t type up my three pieces for my writing folio on Monday. TBH I’m not that broken up about it because English is a massive bludge for me because my teacher thinks I’m Shakespeare or Austen he’s so stupid - he can’t even put together correct sentences most of the time (is this possibly why I have a lack of people to talk to?). I have to learn my script for Monday too, I know it, but I haven’t done all the work I should do on it, because I’m moody and lazy today because so much happened yesterday and absolutely nothing has happened today apart from waking up, going to the bakery, going for a walk and coming home. All of which were frankly uneventful.
Anyhow I’m going to stop this mopey post right now because it’s making me even more depressed.
I was going to watch The Wizard of Oz… but now I don’t feel like it… which makes me sad.
Also, I’ve attempted to download Skype - anyone have it? - and it’s telling me that it has “5 days left” then changed to “7 days left” - I have no idea what that means! Maybe I’ll just cancel the download…
I cancelled it… now I’m doubting it… oh well.
My list of obsessions (past and present - in no particular order)
- Doctor Who
- Harry Potter
- Buffy the Vampire Slayer
…That’s 8, which is closer to 10 if you round it up, which is most peoples books is far too many obsessions. And I do not object, it is a lot, but I honestly can’t help it, I have a hopelessly obsessive personality - for better or for worse.
I would rather like to get the book ‘Wicked - The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West’, yet with all the adaptions that that took place during the process of it becoming Wicked the musical… I don’t know how much I’d like it to be completely honest, I’ve grown very fond of the musical. I think I’ll stick to it… for now at least.
Want me to stop talking about Wicked now? Trust me, I’m trying.
"I've always wanted to be in musicals, I'm just gonna put that out there"
"Now everyone’s laughing at you"
“Yeah, I know”
Awh, love Gee.
ANYWAY! Not the point of this blog.
'Wicked' has made me realise that I have a great love of musicals. I always sort of went “meh, musicals” but now I think about it - The Wizard of Oz, the Sound of Music (both or which I saw on stage), Disney movies, Singing in the Rain and now Wicked… I think this is well in to becoming an obsession. And I've found myself, like Gee, really thinking “I'd love to be in a musical”. I know, I'm sick in the head, but I don't care.
So there you go, you heard it here first folks, I love musicals. And really - what’s not to love? I admit some are really quite awful but when you’re on to a good one it’s hard to ignore it. Besides, I dare anyone to see Wicked (or the Wizard of Oz for that matter!) and not develop a soft spot for musical entertainment. Well, I dare anyone sane, because without naming names (because I hate this particular relative-to-be) I know of some stupid person who was offered FREE tickets to Wicked and asked my mother “oh… do you think the girls would be interested?” (side note: it was the only thing we had been talking about for the prior month!). Anyway, that rant is ending right there and I’m gonna go keep looking at quotes and singing songs and wishing I remembered to look for the DVD of The Wizard of Oz when I went shopping last night.
S2 Ianto, cos S1 Ianto is a bit boring and annoying with the whole “look I have a deep voice” and “Lisa! I loved you and even though your pretty much dead” (spoiler warnings if you haven’t seen like, the second episode) “and half cyberman and now killing all my friends and coworkers I still love you!” …. yeah, he was a bit annoying there. But he gets all the good sarcastic lines, so I love him.
Am I shallow? I think I’m probably pretty shallow.
In the words of the also rather dashing Fieryo (Wicked) I am “deeply shallow”
You know.. number-wise I guess I have a lot of friends… well, not a lot but quite a few. Yet… it doesn’t really feel like it. I’m not good at being a friend and having friends… I am totally inept. Oh well, you take what you can get and make the best of it :) I’m not actually complaining, just sort of, thinking out loud… in a typing sense.
