I haven't felt much like blogging lately, hence the long break. It's been so long that I hardly know what to say now! Just a few quick notes on what's been going on in my life:
- Singing lessons are going well. My teacher has set up an advanced class, so my sisters and I are doing that now. He said to us at our last lesson, "I'm going to make you girls killer singers." :)
- Call me crazy, but I had my sister put my (very) curly hair into roller-curlers last night. I wanted my hair shorter, but I didn't want to cut it. However, my hair is very long and heavy, so I don't know how well this will work. Desirae will be taking out the curlers in a few hours, so I guess we'll see then.
- Rehearsals for Twelfth Night have STARTED! Oh-my-goodness-gracious-heavens-to-Betsy, I am so excited about this play. One of the things I noticed at our read-through a few nights ago is that the story just plays out in a really different way than Comedy of Errors (for those of you who don't know this, I was in that last year). Comedy of Errors was crazy and fast-paced, and all the scenes took place in the same day. Twelfth Night is more stretched out, with quiet scenes and scenes of - almost suspense, but not quite. And another thing I'm excited about: MUSIC! There's going to be a lot of music in the play.
One last thing: Lately I've fallen in love with the music from the musical The Scarlet Pimpernel. Here is one of my favorite songs, The Riddle, with a scene before it with Sir Percy and his friends. WARNING: Some language when Marguerite is talking to Chauvelin. The actual song begins at about 5:56.
