I got the blues... buh bun nuh buh

If you didn't notice... my last post was really about 2 weeks overdue. I wrote it and never acutally published it... But that happens sometimes. So what is new with me this week! Well first of all every night this week i've been up to at least 2:00AM (sometimes 3:30AM) doing homework (so i'm just a little exhausted). Lets see... I had 2 essays to edit and revise into a second draft, and essay to write, a debate in philosophy, a test in math, a test in philosophy, philosophy ISU confrences (a lot of reading of linguitical diaherra to actually understand the philosophies), and almost an english presentation (THANKFULLY was put off until tuesday next week). So needless to say it was busy... that and I had to read multiple plays, for school and for drama.

BUT that brings me to the excitement of this week! I got a part in the up coming theatre shorts drama production. Essentially it's a complimation of 10 or so 1 act plays, possibly playing over 2 nights (not sure of the legistics yet). I was promised a part (since i'm such a magnifico! actor)... but I think I got something that will be fun to play. It's not a humour ridden part, like Sir Toby in 12th night, but it definetly filled with enough cynicism to keep me happy. So my play is a student written and directed play, and I get to play the "hobo". The plot is that this guy was bet x amount of money that he couldn't stay out on the streets with a hobo for 24 hours... so of course he takes a seat at my side. It will require some added theatrical touches (student written and all), but overall it looks like a lot of fun and the rest of the cast looks like they can stomach my sense of humour >=D.

That ALSO brings me to my next cool thing! On wednesday I went to Stratford to see 'Oliver'. Let me just say it was an amazing play. their were at least 7 or 8 children actors as well as the compliment of adults and they were all really good. They all had voices to 'die' for, and the play was just hilarious (oh how I love the comedic relief of london's lower class... inneudo!). But even more interesting and pertinent to my role as a hobo (though I didn't do it for that reason). I bought myself a harmonica from a music shop in Stratford. It's so much fun to actually play an instrument again... i'm not even that half bad... but my goal is to learn to play one jazzy blues song so that I can do it in my role as the hobo (see how my divergent impulsive thinking actually has practical applications!).

However also on the topic of drama... we're looking to get some drama club sweaters... but since a lot of us have been in drama for a while we have the standard one already... so we were thinking about new designs and I of course said we could do an ambigram. So i've unofficially been creating ideas that might possibly go onto a sweater for drama club, which I think would be really cool. So far I'm still trying to come up with a 5-6 letter word that means something to Drama. Which means that the idea behind it is that it says drama to people looking at it but to you who reads it downwards it says some funny phrase or word, like an inside drama joke. So I'm enlisting anyone and everyone to think of drama associated words... the word has to be 5-6 letters (for the word drama) but Drama Club, or Dramatic Arts can also be used. Essentially it shouldn't be more then 1 letter longer or if it's a larger phrase 2 letters.

I think that concludes my week. So like always I will end with a quote of the day.

Quote of the Day:
"I am ready to meet my Maker. Whether my Maker is prepared for the ordeal of meeting me is another matter. "
