LJ Friends!

Question: What is your favorite musical?
(on or off Broadway)

Although hard to choose, my answer would have to be Cats.
I know, it seems like a silly choice because it is a bit ridiculous. One reason I think that it stands out in my mind though is because I have a strong background in dance rather than music/vocal, acting, etc. and it's an intensely dance-heavy show. I also can't believe what an amazing job they did with costumes & makeup, it's nearly impossible to recreate them. It was also one of the first musicals I really loved and it's just fun to watch!

Favorite moments...Collapse )

Okay I've been deathly ill for about a week now and in my recovering stages I'm finally having a few good laughs.
I discovered textsfromlastnight during college this past year, it's pretty hilarious sometimes but a lot of them are just so-so.

The best and worst...!
(some of these have foul language, you've been warned!)

On to the texts!Collapse )

Okay so I pretty regularly visit Geekologie, which featured recently a site called Omegle where you get paired with a random 'stranger' in a chat type interface where you get to IM with someone.

It's kind of like getting locked in a pitch black closet with someone you've never met. You just have to go for it.

OmegleCollapse )

Anyway, I hope all my LJ friends are doing alright, I haven't been on here in a long time and I miss you guys!

A lot of these are testing geography knowledge but there are a bunch of random others like bones/muscles in the body, works of literature, parts of a horse, planets, famous people, science, languages, etc.


I used it to practice my hiragana & got sidetracked. It's pretty fun.

My potential schedule this spring is:
  • Japanese 101
  • Biology 120
  • Chemistry 101
  • Philosophy 204 (Medical Ethics)

I am really seriously enjoying Biology because I had an excellent AP teacher in high school. Chemistry is so easy it's not funny, and I've yet to get far enough into Medical Ethics to really decide one way or the other on it.

I've been spending a ton of time playing Fallout 3, which I can't play before falling asleep anymore because I have dreams about living in a post-apocalyptic world *every* time.

I just woke up.
Yes it's 6 AM, but I can't sleep when I'm hot and I was positively sweating a minute ago and had to peel off my pajama pants and then decided to just get up.

Before that, though, I had an awesome dream.

My suitemates from college and I were living in a part of Bruno's (sort of as refugees during some kind of disaster I suppose) and decided to go get some food from the store. Two of them ended up stealing money from this old lady at the register and I felt bad for her.
Anwyay, later on I was with someone else in New York City and we had just gotten onto this floor with a lounge in a nice building when I look to my left and see Helena Bonham Carter! Of course in the dream I was just as awkward as I really am so it took a while for me to muster the courage and the composure to go up and ask for a photo with her, which is right when I woke up.

That dream put me in a good mood, though, for this morning.
I love that woman.

I had to get up anyway, because a friend of mine that goes to Annapolis invited me to some kind of ....I guess equivalent of a Naval Academy winter formal? tonight where they wear the dress uniform and I panic out of my mind trying to find a suitable dress!
It's in Birmingham and so we're driving up there this morning, having lunch and such, before we go.

I actually woke up before 3 in the afternoon yesterday. I don't think I've seen 8 AM in a long, long time.

Whenever I'm awake in the morning I feel particularly productive and end up getting a lot more done in less time, which was good because I had a lot to do.

I ended up going shopping later in the morning with my cousin (who is more like my brother) Buddy.

Click for photos...Collapse )

He had to buy literally -all- of his Christmas presents so we drove all around town looking for stuff.
In our shopping spree, we stopped by both Goodwill stores that I know of in Mobile, and he found a brand name metal detector, still in its original packaging, for $4. He's giving it to our grandfather in hopes that it will get him a little more active. I was a little jealous that his gift finding was so easy.
I guess I forget that this time of year Goodwill is especially packed with stuff that people are giving away as they feel charitable and are making room for the new.
I did find a really antique looking typewriter that looked fairly intact on one of the back shelves amongst the old TVs and VCRs. I can't stop thinking about it and I know it probably won't work like it is supposed to and I shouldn't buy things for myself this time of year, but it was probably a steal and I'm tempted to go back and buy it. 
It would at least be a fun project to work on to get it looking and working well, and I'm obsessed with weird nostalgic things like that.
I suppose if I got it looking and working nice, I could always give it away to one of my friends who would appreciate it.

Earlier this year I bought an old Polaroid OneStep camera for less than $10 and spent a week running around campus snapping polaroids of my friends and random stuff. It's just so much more satisfying to take photos with that than with my digital camera, for some reason.

I also really like old television sets, with wood casing and knobs.
You know what I mean? Do you guys like any older stuff like that, just for the novelty?

It certainly has been a while, no?

Well, my first semester of college is over.

How have you guys been?
