Things that…


Make me happy:

1: Grease Rehearsal

2: My beautiful new boots, Charlotte Russe, sales, and friends that don’t mind if we match.

3: How long my hair is gettingΒ  (and do you love the total myspace shot? taken in the SPSCC bathroom):

4: Having a camera so I can take terrible pictures to put on my blog (and almost kill myself and everyone else on the road while I take pictures and attempt to steer the car at the same time, bad idea guys, do NOT do it) I kind of like the ghosty dashboard reflection…:

Make me sad:

1: People whose cars look like this (sorry you can’t see anything throughout the glare, but the front and back seats are just strewn with trash. I mean, I have a couple wrappers from time to time, but come on guys this is disgusting. Spotted in the softball lot!):

2: The fact that I make obscenely good life choices:

Let me explain….

My friend Y, pictured above, often accuses me of absolutely awful things like “making obscenely good life choices” and for once I am afraid I must agree with her.

For those of you who are not aware, midnight premieres are one of my favorite things. I love the entire feeling of a movie theatre–the giant screen, the over-large seats, the nasty gunk all over the floors…But all of these things late at night when I really ought to be asleep? Magical.

Want to know something else that is magical that I have been planning and fretting over and excitedly checking Fandango every day for months about? Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1.

After much tortured battling with my moral conscience and soul and secret rebel, I have come to the horrible conclusion that due to Grease, the Musical I will not be able to attend the midnight premiere of Harry Potter.

I know, I know, there are angels fainting and unborn babies dying all over the place because of this decision (too much?) but I simply cannot reconcile indulging my fan-girl by going to the midnight premiere with being a responsible grown up. Disgusting, right?

If I went I would have school all the next day and then a performance that evening. I would be exhausted. Those of you who are around me know that I get loopy and then cranky when I don’t have enough sleep.

I want to be able to give my all to each and every performance, so I suppose I shall just have to go see HP on another day. I shudder at the thought, but it is as it must be.

I know that others from the cast are planning on attending, and I think it is wonderful if they can do both. I just know that for me, personally, fatigue would play a part in my performance.

Drat being me, is all I have to say.

Voyage of the Dawn Treader is coming out in December. Who wants to go to the midnight premiere with me?

Sincerely,

Emilie

  1. Stumbled upon this in my websurfing today searching for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows reviews. While I would have to agree that I maintain a few wrappers every now and again in my car, I have to say I couldn’t agree with your posting a photo of someone else’s car. That about your blog today, made me sad. Maybe it’s not such a big deal in this particular circumstance, but a car is someone’s personal property, and there is a certain expectation of privacy that should come with it. I might be ranting for nothing. Perhaps this was a friend’s car, and/or you did get permission for this photo, but the way it was framed in this post does not convey that. I cannot speak for this person whose car you photographed, but *I* would be mortified, offended and upset if I found you photographed my car, or any space of mine and published it without permission(s). I don’t expect you will chose to publish this comment, but I wanted to leave my thoughts, and perhaps some consideration for you as a blogger. The decision to post this photo and blog about it was not one of your better life choices. One has to wonder why you were looking in other’s cars in the first place..

    • I agree that there is a fine line to walk regarding privacy, but I would have to disagree that this post is an invasion of said privacy.
      In the first place–this car is in a parking lot of a university and everything in the car is in plain view. If the driver has no scruples possibly displaying the contents of their car to 1600 students on a daily basis (and other people wherever they go), then I am sure they would have no problem with an obscure photo to which their name is not linked on a personal blog which gets a paltry 30-something views a day.
      In the second place–unless if this is your car, the picture is completely unidentifiable. The glare and scope of the photo pretty much block out any identifying features of the car, there is no name attached to the photo, and even I do not know to whom the car belonged, or even remember what it looked like.
      In the third place–mortification and disgust were entirely the emotions I was going for.
      As to why I was “looking in other’s [sic] cars in the first place”, I happened to be parked next to the vehicle and when I reached out to close my door I saw the refuse next to me and could not resist.

      Thank you very much for your consideration, and for your comment! I do not regret this life decision (as a matter of fact I am quite tickled by your response), but I appreciate your candor, and I absolutely loved the way you used my phrasing in your comment. Please feel free to stop by anytime, I am always glad to hear opposing points of view (and to publish them).

  2. I can’t make it to the HP premiere due to school responsibilities either 😦 But I’m totally going to the VDT midnight premiere, even if it kills me!!! πŸ™‚
