I was gonna say something. Um.

I dreamed Vati turned evil (like Hitler, despite his well-known case of disagreeing with Hitler) and took over HT and the next conference was obligatory (mandatory? wait, I can't decide) and oppressive and dystopic and everything was wrong, and some MHers and I had to take it down from the inside like the D. A.

Diligence: a fate I would hate.

Firstly and most importantly: Sam(my(-Wammy( the Lamby))) is adorable. (And healthy.) I will even take a picture from facebook to prove it:

Awwwwwwwwww. Little newborns and their silly faces.
He was born opening night of Camelot.

Speaking! of shows and whatnot! I got a part in Bethel's spring musical, Little Women. I = Mrs. Kirk. I have lines, guys. And, like, my own part in a duet or trio or something. Maybe. Actually maybe it's me and Professor Bhaer on on part and Jo on the other... oh, well, anyway, I'm excited. Hopefully I'll come back to this thing (blog) after rehearsals start and let you know what my part actually is. I read the script, but I didn't retain a whole lot. :P

Ummmmmmmmm. So it's cold and stuff.

In the not-wackily-happy section, I'm bored. D:

Today's thoughts.

Jesus came off my crucifix. It seems like less of a statement now.

There's something I really like about the image of a fiery windmill.

I miss my sandwich.

Nat was looking for a bottle of cologne that had been one of his wedding presents. I had an urge to call it and just follow the ringing to find it.

I don't think I will ever not wear this petticoat again. It's the best thing since blue.


I didn't realize when I auditioned how much innuendo is in Camelot. Oops...

I made my blog private so I could complain about Bethel without any of them seeing, but it occurs to me that probably no one cares.

I'm cleaning! ... my e-mail inbox. I'm doing well, though. I got it from the 1800's yesterdayish to the 1400's todayish.

Coram Deo--Illinois was probably the biggest the Emmaus youth group has ever been, and I'm the only one in it who also went to Dare to be Lutheran--St. Louis in 2005. I feel SO OLD, guys.

My alarm clock does not understand "off."

I Will Go, I Will Go (Scottish folk), Il Sospiro (Donizetti), and If I Can't Love Her (Beauty and the Beast) make an interesting combination to be stuck in my head.

31 years together. Yayyyyy parents.

I keep adding more thoughts to this in the hopes that I'll remember the third one I actually planned. I think it may be gone forever.

Seriously, though, it was a great sandwich.

Yo Ho Ho and a bowl of ice cream.

When the dishes are all dirty and I need a spoon and I open the dishwasher and see it's full of clean dishes, it's like finding treasure.

That's how mundane my life is at the moment.

HP7.II movie

So I just saw the most recent Harry Potter movie. I won't spoil it, but if you want to be 100% surprised (id est, not even know my reaction), don't read on.
Parts of it: I loved. I clapped; I squealed; I got teary-eyed, which is really saying something.

The majority, and overall: I am furious. I want to punch faces.

Who else has seen it?

Till with the Vision Glorious her longing eyes are blest...

T minus four days, y'all. Things are getting mighty intense around here.

Life is sad sometimes. Colin Meloy shares a birthday with his wife (awwwww), but their five-year-old is autistic. Also Jenny Conlee has breast cancer.
THANKS A LOT WIKIPEDIA i'll never browse you again

I need sleep.

Are you dreaming I'm about to kiss you?

Bethel did Cinderella this weekend. I went twice.

So prince Christopher Rupert mumble mumble Carl Alexander Francois Reginald Lancelot Herman Gregory James sings his love to Cinderella and she walks off a few steps, looking troubled. He says, "I suppose it's not a good sign if you tell someone you love them and they don't say anything," and she says, "I'm afraid that if I say anything I'll wake up," and then he replies with the post title. These may be paraphrased.

Anyway, I think there are better ways it could have been handled. Especially since the actor who played the prince looks just young to me. Last fall he played a boy about thirteen and that was actually about right.

It's decidedly weirder to know the actors as almost peers. (Most of them are at least Sophomores, so I still feel a bit young next to them.) I ended up enjoying it a lot because of knowing them and being happy that they were doing so well, but it was hard to romanticize it like I've always done with the musicals when I was younger. Partially because I don't totally love this musical. It's just kind of light and fluffy. The bad people are silly. There's not much conflict. You know exactly how it's going to end.

Can you tell I'm procrastinating on my homework? I'm rambling.

I have found her. She's an angel with the dust of the stars in her eyes.

Alternately, awesome neiphling #3 in her womb and also she's my sister Naomi. YAAAAAAAY

I'm pretty sure y'all knew that already though. Whatever. It's still superhappytimes news, and I mean that.

w r sns nd hrs f grc

The other day in class, while someone was talking, she said something I considered to be a very good line, twitching the context a little. I whispered "wow," (one of my classmates heard me and gave me a weird look, whatever) and grabbed my notebook to write it down.

It's been a little while since I've done that.

Pro: tres comfy. Con: My head looks like a mushroom.

snooooooooow daaaaaaaaaaaaaaay why must you end?

Margaret gets zero points for participation today.

I was trying to not take the cold medicine all the time every day, and since I only had one class today I thought perhaps I'd forgo it. So yeah. An hour and a half of loud coughing and blowing my nose and being too out of it to answer questions. Smart.

Okay, now I'm just whining because the medicine tastes nasty.

Maybe I'll blow off talking language!

I remember having a blog.

Auditions for The Importance of Being Earnest are on Monday. I'm feeling kind of cynical about going. I mean, there are only four female roles.

I'm memorizing Death, be not proud (John Donne, 1633) for Written Comm III.

What is it with me and having a cold?
