My little sister is trying out for the school musical, and although she knows she won't get to be Belle (she's in 6th grade and it's the high school musical, but they need chorus people and the dancing animated objects and stuff) she's determined to find a song to blow the teacher away during auditions.

Her: I need a great song!
Me: You're.. what, you're an alto?
Her: I don't know
Me: .....okaay, well... try this, can you sing this?
Her: No..
Me: Well, you're an alto then, or at least the 11 year old version.
Her: Are you?
Me: No, I'm a soprano. Means I can sing a lot higher than you. Also means all my favorite pieces won't work for you.
Her: What about this one?
Me: Errr.. I'd go with a song where the singing style isn't so distinct, plus you hear that song every time you turn on the radio. *searches for some alto songs*
*after ten minutes in iTunes*

Me: You're an alto, mom's an alto, Jen (our other sister) is an alto... You're like a whole different musical species!

And then I find some of Sherie Rene Scott's songs from Last 5 Years, thank heavens, but I don't think she likes how slow they are. Or anything from Chess or 'I Dreamed A Dream' which is totally an alto song... oh well. I remember all my auditions, and the song has to be approved as school-appropriate (as well as the musical it's from - with the exception of Les Mis, we love that one so much we overlook the sketchy songs like Lovely Ladies) so that really rules out a lot of potential songs. xD

so we're listening to Zagreus BECAUSE IT'S THAT AWESOME and she starts talking to a friend on her gmail chat.

me: any chance you could talk to her tomorrow, cause I reaaaally wanna finish this part with you tonight.

her: I can't talk to her tomorrow, she'll be in another state.

me: could you talk to her friday?

her: *pshhh* no, everyone knows on friday you don't wanna be on gmail chat. on friday you listen to rebecca black and have a party!


me: *TWITCH*

To those of you who don't know what she's talking about (or simply haven't seen the video), consider yourself blessed beyond belief

(APPROPRIATE ICON IS APPROPRIATE. OH, SO MUCH.)

Holycrap my hands are freezing I can't feel them.
I went outside for like half an hour and got ONE GOOD PICTURE.

LET ME SHOW YOU IT.
PICS )


I also have epic pics of the moon 'un-eclipsing' as the red part of it goes down the moon, as it were.

To clarify: I have this decent camera, it's not anything special, and I set it to the setting for like, shooting stars, so it keeps the shutter open for 15 seconds to get the shooting stars all in one shot, k?

Except my hands are shaking bad although it settles a bit once I can't feel/move my fingers anymore, so I go to my neighbor's wooden fence thing and prop the camera up and try to shoot although that whole set winds up cool yet blurry; it looks like if you try to quickly shoot/film a moving glowstick or something. You get the motion and there's like multiple moons.

So then I grabbed some twiggy branch things from a bush and pushed them up against the back of the fence and let my camera rest on them and three shots more -- all with me crouched down holding perfectly still, and I got that one. <33333333333333

I'm allowed to pat myself on the back now and crawl wearily into bed again, right?
PS: Not only did I not go to bed at 3:30 AM after getting this picture, I stayed up until 5AM getting shots of the moon in its various post-eclipse phases. (Which I'll post links to later if there's any interest.)

BED FOR ME KTHX.

As part of my attempt to stay active and my newfound urge to write, here you go. It's probably really dumb, but I was jotting it down while nobody was in the store today.
Word count: 416

Harry Potter + my bored brain + free time at work = ??? )

Was it terrible? Good? Made you giggle? Please let me know. xD
I adore constructive criticism, and of course, general comments.
Also, I have no idea where to post it to get a larger reader base than my f-list. Suggestions are loved.

Now to go sleep off my terrible headache that's been raging the better part of four hours. <3

...that I apparently WROTE in June 2007. Lololololol. It's completely cracky but I thought it was awesome at the time. Time to take a break from organizing and transcribe it. Here goes nothing. PS: My brain was weird with fic back then (still is - I don't even write fic) so I'm transcribing it as to how I read it now, not gonna bother writing what's on the two small pages, it's nearly unintelligible nonsense. :P

Thoughts? Questions? Concerns?

([livejournal.com profile] gildedmuse, you demanded a "full report (of course) of the whole big damn thing", and a full report you shall have. Some mighty impressive TL;DR is here, and I expect you to read it all. XD
Don't say I didn't warn you.)

I'd love to know if anyone else went, and what they thought. (Or even if you didn't, comments are loved) You probably saw me running around snapping pics or whirling on the dance floor, if you attended.

The following is lots of my recollections rather than just a simple report on the event, so apologies if the only thing you wanted to know was textbook details. :P

LONG SHINY REPORT, HERE! )

PS: I was a terrible Bounty Hunter. I recognized all but two people but was so timid to actually go arrest people that I only caught one Outlaw. :P

I JUST CAUGHT A FREAKING SHINY TANGELA. SHINY. TANGELA. SHINYYYY.

I WAS TRAINING MY DRAGONAIR AT MT SILVER AND JUST LOOKED DOWN ON THE SCREEN FOR A SECOND AND WAS LIKE OMG WHAT POKEMON IS THA---- HOLY EFF IT'S A FREAKING GREEN TANGELA. WTF GREE--- HOLY CRAP IT'S A SHINY.
AND THEN I TOTALLY CAUGHT IT. HOLY CRAP THIS NEVER HAPPENS TO ME. *flailing*



Edit: For those of you who aren't Pokemon geeks like me, here's what this means.

A shiny Pokemon is a differently-colored one. They're considered really rare, in terms of obtainable, because my chances of seeing one, in any game ever, are about 1 in 8192 or 0.01%.

AAAAAHHHH.

So I went to play a game of laser tag with my BF at our nearest LaserQuest. The first game, it was a pretty even mix of pre-teens/teens. We decided to team up just for fun, since I hadn't played in two years and he hadn't played in even longer. It's allowed, although it's technically a solo game so friendly fire can happen.

So I'm wearing my black Doctor Who t-shirt with "exterminate" and a Dalek on it in red print, ducking and dodging the laser beams and shooting everything in sight. (man, that really does sound badass.)

By this point I'm pretty sure my bf is acting like this is either a FPS or he's part of the Secret Service, or a bit of both, which made me laugh to no end. And we're clearing through rooms and fighting our way to this dead-end zone on the third level where basically it's like crazy gang warring in this teeny narrow bridge area and very little cover. And we take some hits but manage to clear it and then just run for it while trying to shoot the incoming wave.

So after the 40ish minutes are up, we head out to see the scores. My handle was "Kat", half because it was the first thing I could come up with and half because it made sense, obvs. And the woman handing out the paper scorecards called my name and was like "...and she tagged so many people that we had to print out a second sheet for her."

FIRST GAME IN TWO YEARS AND I CAME IN FIRST PLACE, YOU GUYS.
And as if that wasn't epic enough: I counted how many people I shot. Total was 32. There were 33 people in the whole game. Meaning the only person I didn't hit was myself. (Yes, it does mean I accidentally shot my BF once when I couldn't see who it was. I wasn't intentionally doing any of this - it's a darkened 8000 square feet tri-level maze filled with foggy smoke and corridors and even some mirrors. I just happen to be this awesome, apparently.)
