Stardust.

Oh my...  I'm not sure that there are words for how awesome it was.  heart heart heart.  It passes the coherent-to-someone-who-hasn't-read-the-book test, as well as the faithful-to-the-book test.  And it's amazing.  A-mazing.

Oh, and I heart Captain Shakespeare.  So so so so so much.

Um...

This is getting to be a yearly thing. It's starting to be a little ridiculous. One and two years ago, I posted here about weather aggravation. (http://faerie-music.livejournal.com/16290.html) I am currently at Wellesley, because the bus which was supposed to take me home in five minutes was cancelled due to (you guessed it) a big storm. Oh well. At least this time there wasn't anything particular I wanted to do there. In fact, there's a party here which I thought I was going to miss but can instead go to, so it's really ok. I probably wouldn't even be posting about it if it weren't for the fact that it's happened twice before.
I have come to a conclusion. Rool and Franjean are not brownies: they're Feegle.
So on Saturday, I auditioned for another play. I've been complaining about the fact that I can't stay for wintersession because choir tour is ten days in the middle of it for pretty much the whole semester. So finally I decided I would just audition for A Little Night Music, making sure the director knew I would be away for tour, and see what happened.

What happened is I got the lead. Again. I will be playing Fredrik Egerman. Which kinda rocks. A lot. The play is only partially cast, as yet, and I can't wait to see who the other parts are, particularly as some of the people I most care about in the cast are not yet cast. argh.

In other news, my wrist is playing up again. (I'm not sure if you all know, but every so often it does this thing where it hurts to bend my left wrist.) This time, I am seeing the effects of Titus. Not on the wrist itself, but on me in general. Before, when my wrist would play up, I would wear the brace, but otherwise pretty much treat the arm as usual. Now, I have taken to holding it tight to my body. This is because, in Titus, I chopped off my left hand. And then spent the rest of a quite long scene with my arm held tight to my body, usually gripping it with my other hand.

So, to return to the original topic...

Reasons I am excited about Wintersession:
-I will be in a wonderful musical
-I will not have classes interfering with said wonderful musical
-a lot of amazing Shakers (members of the Shakespeare Society) will be around
-my best friend on my hall will be around
-I will be helping make "pretty and historical" costumes for above wonderful musical
-choir tour is said to be amazing, and it probably is; the concept is rather Village Harmony-esque

Wheee*kersplat*

So, Titus opened tonight. And it was amazing. My blood didn't go off right, and there were a couple of moments, but all told, it not only didn't suck, it was really good. And it was really wonderfully fun. I love shows.

And I have a french paper. Due at 9:50 tomorrow morning. I love shows; however, they are not conducive to rational thought. In french or any other language.

Maybe I'll go and take a shower to get the blood and baby powder out, and see if that wakes me up.

TITUS ANDRONICUS

Anyone in the greater Boston area this weekend, or next, you should come see it! It's $5 for students, $10 for adults. You get to see me play a cowboy, which in itself ought to be worth the price of admission!

The dates/times are:

Thursday, 11/9, 7pm
Friday, 11/10, 8pm
Saturday, 11/11, 2pm
Sunday, 11/12, 7pm

Thursday, 11/16, 7pm
Friday, 11/17, 8pm
Saturday, 11/18, 8pm
Sunday, 11/19, 7pm
(at Wellesley College, Shakespeare House)

So, to sum up, Shakespeare + Cowboys + me + man makeup + lots and lots of blood = AMAZING!

Wow.

I am living a charmed life.

A couple of weeks ago, I auditioned for choir and chamber singers. I was called back for both, and ultimately got into both. I'm really ecstatic about that.

Then, last week, I teaed for Shakespeare society. So on Thursday night, the entire society came and banged on my door and screamed, to let me know that I got in. And I am REALLY ecstatic about that.

All new members of the society have to be in the play their first semester. This semester, we're doing Titus Andronicus (blood and dismemberment and eating people in pies! Huzzah!). So I went and tried out for that; I don't really know the play all that well, so I didn't really care what part I got. I got Titus. I, a first semester firstyear, got the title role. Saying I'm ecstatic would not cover this. I'm still not entirely sure I believe it.

Oh, and there's going to be a staged reading of Richard II, Henry IV 1 & 2, Henry V, Henry VI 1, 2, & 3, and Richard III soon, and I'm going to be Richard II, and possibly other stuff.

So anyway, the point is, I am insane, and my life is amazing and amazingly full right now.
I Am A: Chaotic Good Elf Bard Ranger


Alignment:
Chaotic Good characters are independent types with a strong belief in the value of goodness. They have little use for governments and other forces of order, and will generally do their own things, without heed to such groups.


Race:
Elves are the eldest of all races, although they are generally a bit smaller than humans. They are generally well-cultured, artistic, easy-going, and because of their long lives, unconcerned with day-to-day activities that other races frequently concern themselves with. Elves are, effectively, immortal, although they can be killed. After a thousand years or so, they simply pass on to the next plane of existance.


Primary Class:
Bards are the entertainers. They sing, dance, and play instruments to make other people happy, and, frequently, make money. They also tend to dabble in magic a bit.


Secondary Class:
Rangers are the defenders of nature and the elements. They are in tune with the Earth, and work to keep it safe and healthy.


Deity:
Hanali Cenanil is the Chaotic Good elven goddess of love, beauty, and art. She is also known as the Heart of Gold and Lady Goldheart. Her followers delight in creation and youth, and work to spread happiness, love, and beauty. Their preferred weapon is the dagger.
