After the finale of last season of Project Runway, Chris and I had a fun little convo that's stayed one of my pet favorites and I just ~realized we never posted. Soooo. I'm posting it now.

So, I finished my ScriptFrenzy screenplay last Friday (eight whole days before deadline, w00t!) and, while not a triumph of modern cinema, it's not crap. I'm mostly thrilled that I actually *finished* something, something that I don't want to chop my fingers off for ever writing.

The only problem...I told my family I was doing SF (there had to be *some* explanation for why I spent an hour a day locked up with the computer) and dad wants to read it. I appreciate so much that he's interested in my writing, and I'd way rather that then he think I was wasting my time dad is, how shall we say, traditional. And my script? Has vampire boylove, threatens bondagey vampire boylove, and...yeah. He's not gonna like that, and he's really not gonna like that I like that. My choices are either to not mention it again and hope he forgets, insist that I'm still revising (which I will be) and hope he gives up, or sanitize the script into a Daddy!Safe version. Sigh. Who knew having supportive parents would be so difficult?

Right now I'm tired from working at a brat fry all morning, and I still have to go to a graduation party. Friends are all on me about why I'm not going to more (there are two others this afternoon that I'm *not* going to), but...I'm just not really a party person. Not constantly. You go and you eat and you sit and talk with the same people you saw at the last party. I don't need that much together time. I would rather be alone or, if I have to be social, be one-on-one. Big group events don't really interest me. A couple of friends is fine, but when there's just a mob of people milling around making Not my thing.

Also planning for my next original piece, hopefully a novel, which will be a supernatural dark romantic comedy, featuring a serial murderer as it's hero and an inexplicably indestructible girl as it's heroine with a subplot about the girl he failed to kill and her romance with a young reporter. Interested/sickened/horribly confused yet? Yeah, me too. I filled out a character profile for my hero (Nicholas Shane), and will probably do the heroine (Thalia Maddox) tomorrow. No word on when inspiration will strike to flesh out the secondary heroine (Madison Keene) and her boyfriend (???) doesn't even have name yet. But I like the's dark and quirky (kinda like me) so I think I'll be able to stay interested in working on it. Fingers crossed, of course.

I saw a few on [ profile] anteka's journal, and I was inspired. I used to love these things so much.

You Should Date An Italian!

You love for old fashioned romance, with an old fashioned guy
An Italian guy is the perfect candidate to be your prince charming
If your head doesn't spin enough, just down another espresso with him
Invest in a motorcycle helmet - and some carb blocker for all that pasta!

Yeah. I've been lurking around the TWOP recaps when I'm bored, and was just reading the recaplets for So You Think You Can Dance, and I felt like sharing.

I have a serious love/hate with Dance. I watched part of it's first season, and thought it was dumb. Then I became slave to the all-powerful glory that is Dancing with the Stars, and I figured "hey! Dancing show and dancing show! I must watch." And...yeah, not so good logic.

Stars has really spoiled me for Dance. Because my sister and I sit there watching dance and critiquing horribly. The "ballroom" dances they do on the show are not even worth mentioning, and bear zero resemblence to any actual ballroom dance. But even the other stuff...I'm not a fan of contemporary (so she's flailing around. so what?), but I still sit there and go "They're not meshing!" "Where's the chemistry?" "Your kicks are sloppy!" among other things. Also, the dancers annoy me. I don't know if it's because the "stars" on Stars are usually so cute and "Well, we do our best!"chipper, but everyone on Dance seems like a real drama queen. Yes, you must dance to share your soul, it's your LIFE. Yeah, who on this show hasn't said exactly the same thing?

Which leaves the only part I really like as the Broadway routines (shut up, I am a sucker for anything and everything theatre), and there's only one of those a week, and is usually the one to get cut when they have less dancers. Oh, and also pretty boys. I'm partial to Pasha the Russian this season, and Neil, although he kind of reminds me of Curtis from Take Home Chef, and also Kameron cuz he's kinda punky and I like that. Cedric is my homeboy (REPRESENT), but he's not my type so I can't put my full heart behind him. Sigh. It's shallow, I know, but c'mon. This is So You Think You Can Dance we're talking about.

It never ceases to amaze me how happy one tiny thing can make you.

I've been having kind of a rough end of the year, lots of stress...but when I went upstairs this morning, my dad had washed a bunch of T-shirts. One of them was from a theatre camp I did years ago. And it just made me so happy. I read all the signatures on the back, and remembered how much fun I had, and the shirt itself is still kinda warm from being in the dryer...<333

I have decided to post everyday.  That way, when I fall ridiculously behind on my "schedule," it might still be at least once a week. Yay.

Just got back from the library...god, I love books.  Seriously.  Every time I go to the library it's just happy happy time.  New books to read <33333  And also Shakespeare in Love, cuz I've been wanting to see that.  But mostly books, a big armful. So much love.

Had to explain 1337 twice today.  My group was trying to brainstorm a good title for our Othello paper (which I may post later on cuz it just Rocks. That. Hard.) and I wrote "Othello: teh pwnz0rz" as a joke.  KV all "who to the what now?"  She had no idea what it was.  Goodness, some people I associate with are so lost. *sigh*  But the happy part was that that led me to look up 1337 on Wikipedia, and there's a pretty seriously righteous entry. Check it out.

I'm in the process of uploading my new moodtheme (iz Dean!), so that should be up hopefully by the end of the night. Yay again. Also: love Evita.
