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

Because I'm totally posting this rather than update on my two-week adventure and things I did besides meeting Matt Smith and Robert Sean Leonard in NYC, or going to Blacksburg and enduring the storm of the apocalypse. I think I'll do that tomorrow morning or something along with a separate mini-memorial post for Elisabeth Sladen. Still in shock about that, although I was in a semi-denial phase until some time yesterday.

Without further ado:

Stolen from [ profile] sucksucksmile.. I think.

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
