|A very token update.

Today, Ginger gave me a bad time about becoming the person who only updates like...once a month, if that. And...yeah. So...I think it's too late for me. But in a token gesture of something or other, I am here, updating, to show why I haven't updated in a while.
In short: very little has happened, in an every-day-after-school kind of way. Les Miz, of course, but I think everybody who reads this knows it was amazing and spectacular and everyone said it was close to professional. Um...spring break was eventful in an uneventful sort of way. I came down with the Les Miz Plague (100.4 degree fever, woo), got a job (hooray!), visited a few colleges, saw a few movies (300 and Blades of Glory), and that was about it.
Since Anna started the trend, I would have to agree that 300 is a good movie. It's kind of a guy movie, as some people have said, but the sheer number of six packs in the film is impressive all by itself. Plot/visual-wise, the movie is part Lord of the Rings, part Gladiator, part Arthurian legend, and part Braveheart. Every Spartan in the film looks familiar (though I have yet to IMDb it fully and find out who they are), and since before I saw it friends were running around doing the Spartan yells it did have sentimental value.
The first day back from break, I stayed after school, went back for Women's Chorale, and did homework between and until I went to bed. It sucked. Just in case I had any illusions about fourth quarter being maybe less crazy than the rest of the year, I had Monday. Today, however, was much better. Time to sit down. I'll be spending an awful lot of time at school in the next month and a half-ish. I'm now in Alice in Wonderland (playing the Duchess, a part I know next to nothing about), directing a scene from The Crucible for Theatre Night, doing the scene we wrote for Theatre Night, and possibly being in another scene for Theatre Night. All of these things culminate within days of each other. I'll be doing a lot of memorizing soon. I also get to miss a lot of school in April. WYSE takes away two days, Nesseth's field trip gets me out of a half day, the PSAE happens on school days but we don't have any classes then... (Has anyone studied for the ACT, by the way...? I sure haven't...)
There you are, Gingie. An entry. Uninteresting, I'm sure, but an entry. I dedicate it to you.
