My hair looked phenomenal today, as proved on camera. At one point (during the break), someone was using the computer prompter to look at their class schedule, so Sarah and I were looking and laughing at it, and then one of the guys doing the "please pledge" shpiels was all "you're on camera!" hahah. So I turn around to look at the camera (the one behind the announcers) and it was staring at the back of my head. Couldn't see my face, but my hair.. yeah.. fantastic.

My dad called and pledged. That was cool. We're now members of WFSU which has some pretty good deals, so yay.

One boy called, got Nikita on the phone, and wanted to talk to "the girl on the end." Since I was at one end, and Joe was at the other, I can only assume it was me. Let's pretend that the reason was flattering, yes?

We ended up with only four volunteers, but the station only got five pledges all night. We all picked up the phones for fake calls when they panned around us in the final shot of LVLC. Hehe.

So, as upset as I was about the volunteers, I'm now over it. All are forgiven. You missed out on hilarious times and really amazing food, but that's just your problem. We were fine :)

Back in the day, Quincy Music Theater was filled with Gadsden county hicks and a few Tally locals* wanting to have fun, be in a play, etc.

Tonight, I auditioned for Jane Eyre. Kind of. I sang.. and then I listened to everyone else sing. The auditions are both today and tomorrow. There are *nine* girl parts that I could have possibly played. Out of the thirty people there tonight, there were ATLEAST twelve girls that were better than I was. Pretty much any guys who audition are going to get parts. And all the 8-12 year old girls. Life was easier when I was younger because there wasn't so much competition. hardly any 8 year olds would audition, so I would get the fabulous parts. But this year, everyone is within a few years of my age, and they were all amazing (okay, so there were definitely a few who were worse than me) And they have more auditions tomorrow. Soo... I stuck it out for a little while, then realized I was wasting my time. It's going to be an amazing show, though. Those girls can really sing. I guess thats what happens when the FSU music majors who can't get into school plays flock to QMT. I really miss their earlier days. Vivi said it started to change around the time she did Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, when the college students started flocking in.


I'm not really that sad. I mean, I would have liked to be in a play (and I may just be rationalizing) but
a)I don't like Jane Eyre. I fall asleep every time reading it and haven't gotten past the halfway mark,
b)I seriously could not afford gas to get out to Quincy four times a week. As with my recent budget, I can't even afford the cutest five dollar shoes ever at Payless,
c) I don't really have the time. I'm going to be working two of the nights they have rehearsals until atleast an hour into rehearsal, and then its a 40 minute drive... so it really just wouldn't work out.

Tear.

*For those who aren't familiar with north florida geography, Quincy is a tiny town about 30 miles west of Tallahassee.
