Time flies like the wind…

March 29, 2004 12:04 am

…fruit flies like a banana. It’s been another full week, which I am blaming on Arcadia – a thick little book with a crazy plot. Rather like a Shakespearean comedy, with lots of gender bending and twisted love plots and a faked death. Amusing, but very much a time sink. Thursday, though, I took it outside to read the last bit because the weather has been GORGEOUS!

Last week I spent Saturday working on the set for Fiddler. Everyone’s supposed to pitch in on at least one Saturday, and that was the week I’d signed up for back in January. A local private school is allowing us to use their shop behind the theater to build the set, so I got a ride out there with a cast memeber. We spent maybe six hours putting together sides of the house and short platforms together, and had a pretty good time.

The show itself is progressing. We have rehearsal nearly every day for the next week or so, and we’re starting to feel confident about everything. On Monday we start rehearsing big blocks of the show all at once – act 1 on Monday, act 2 on Tuesday.

And if you haven’t seen it, go check out the newest trailer for the third Harry Potter movie! In the CCLC, I work around noon and a friend of my coworker often comes down after lunch to hang around for a few minutes before class. On Thursday, the friend came bouncing in and commandeered our computer saying “Here, lemme show you something cool!” I’m looking forward to that movie – I think this one is my favorite of the books.

Is your first performance going to be webcast live so that the rest of us can watch it? 🙂

Surely Furman’s network can handle a couple hundred people pulling 100kbps from your auditorium, right?

As for Prisoner of Azkaban, I’m (of course) looking forward to seeing my pets on-screen! Woo!

I’ve named the one in the trailer “Granandazzar the Night-Feaster.” Like it? *bounce*

Can I name one of your pets? I’m thinking of the name ‘Bobo’.

You two are like peas in a pod. It’s scary.

Pug wrote a comment on March 29, 2004

Tae: We’re not, really. I like warm fireplaces and cool desert nights you see, and Crunch is much more into ripping off heads and showing them to the gathered faithful at his cult ritual sacrifices.

But Dementors are great! I think “Bobo” is a cute name for one of them!

Crunch wrote a comment on March 29, 2004

Mmmmmmmmm, ripping heads off… The best part is when the blood squirts like a fountain.

Odette wrote a comment on March 29, 2004

J.C., you disturb me.

Stephen, you REALLY disturb me.

J.C., the dementors are NOT your pets. Cloud would feel neglected and replaced!

Stephen, do you ever get tired of blood and guts? I mean, really.

Tae, I agree. Yes.

Steph wrote a comment on March 29, 2004

I’ve seen the trailer as well. It’s awesome!

After some of the people up here at school, nothing disturbs me….not even them. Now THAT’s scary…

Crunch wrote a comment on March 29, 2004

How can you get tired of blood and guts? If it’s Crunch, it means I’ve saved my friends from another blood-thirsty baddie. If it’s Jonah, it means I’ve vanquished another foe proving my superiority. Those are just a couple viewpoints, and neither get old.

Only to you Stephen, only you…

Woo, blood and guts!

Pug wrote a comment on March 30, 2004

Let’s have a bloodbath party!

Or even better – Let’s run Crunch for President of the USA as the Bloodbath Party candidate!

Tae wrote a comment on March 30, 2004

Hey Katie? Wanna run off with me to some remote deserted locale now?

Pug wrote a comment on March 30, 2004

Ooh, can I come with? I’ll set up the satellite broadband and get you VoIP phones!

Crunch wrote a comment on March 30, 2004

Crunch For Prez. Ale for ALL!!!

Odette wrote a comment on March 30, 2004

Tae, I think this sounds like a lovely time to go find a remote spot in the desert.

And Pug…it looks like you’re set up as Crunch’s campaign manager. That’s what we’re trying to run away *from*… On the other hand, satellite broadband, hmmm… 😉

Carmen wrote a comment on March 30, 2004

Hey, Crunch, if you win, can I be head of National Security?

Tae wrote a comment on March 30, 2004

Katie! Don’t give in now, that’s just what they want!

Pug wrote a comment on March 30, 2004

Katie! Give in now, that’s what I want!

😉

Odette wrote a comment on March 30, 2004

Oh no! Conflict!

PS – Carmen, if you become head of national security, maybe you could do something about the airport security goons who confiscate finger nail clippers?

Steph wrote a comment on March 30, 2004

did they actual confiscate your nail clippers?

Speaking of airport security…I was having a stupid day when I was coming back from Christmas break, and forgot to take my reed knife out of my case…oops.

ok, back on topic…

Crunch, if you do win and Theresa is national security….just don’t have me bumped off. 😛

Pug wrote a comment on March 30, 2004

My father had his money clip which had a nail file confiscated.

Mom and I were ordered to leave the security area, too. We were quite pissed. I’m still quite pissed. I think the TSA is essentially equal to the East German Stazi.

I want alternate transportation, but as my brother Chris said,”I often wish the US had something similar [to the Japanese Shinkansen, or Bullet Trains] since the TSA has made flying such a PITA (Pain In The Ass). Of course, now that those wacko bastard islamic militants have bombed that Spanish train, the TSA will probably make train travel a PITA too, so it probably wouldn’t help.”

By the definition of the raving conservatives, I think this idea makes me unamerican. Funny, no? Know how I love this country’s founding ideas, who can blame me for being outraged at the bend toward an Orwellian government Bush keeps leaning us?

Did that last part make sense?

Odette wrote a comment on April 2, 2004

Yes, it made sense.

Care to comment?
