Slowly Unravelling

This is to be my random ramblings of theatre, knitting, school life, my musical in progress, and anything I feel that the world should know about me. Why? you may ask. Well I'll tell you. Because I say so.


The world throught the eyes of a stressed out teenager

I'm going to get my third production. I think. It'll be the Secret Garden (Lucy Simon & Marsha Norman. Pretty much the best...)

I've got rights
I've got a calandar
I've got the CD
I'm giving them all to Borberg tomorrow.

I don't have
the script
the administration's approval
A date set for auditions.


Basically, I need to get the go ahead and then cast it ten minutes later. So, I need to hand out music now, but I can't becaiuse I don't have music now. Good Luck to me.

If I get it and cast it then, on top of my 3 AP classes, piano lessons, and learning an opera piece, I will need to direct a musical, learn the 1st soprano part (Lily. Am I allowed to do that? I mean, after all, it is my musical, my idea and I want to be Lily. I don't think anyone else can sing that high anyhow...) fanagel 22 costumes, get approval to use jr. highers for at least 2 parts, build sets, decide on lighting, teach the music, block, coreograph, and go stark raving mad

I'm going to die by January.

Basically, in the next 3 months I will get no knitting done. at all

I'm making a purse. It's some Jo-ann 'sensations' yarn (oo-lah-lah...bellezza) and it felts kind of funky so I may have to line a strapped coin purse because it shrunk, but somehow managed to get bigger holes...(the swatch may be misleading...have I ever told you how I feel about swatches? and gauge? I have? oh)

And we open in 3 weeks. I can count that on one hand.

I am going to have a stroke. This is the blood clot travelling to my brain right now. I am going to die

Much Love.


A year and a day

Life has been stressful and appologize to my 'audience' for not blogging for an exceedingly lengthy period of time. I've been veryveryvery busy. You have no idea. I'm juggling my 3 AP classes quite nicely (okay, I'm doing fine in English, but I'm fighting for my grades in Biology and Calculus. Calculus is fixable, biology, we'll see.) Right now we're reading/listening to MacBeth which I find extraordinarily entertaining, but we haven't made it past act 1 yet, so no one's died. Everyone will be the end. (It's a Shakespearean tragedy. Hamlet--everybody except the student and the soldier dies, Othello--everybody except the bad guy dies, Romeo and Juliet--Mercutio, Tibalt, Romeo, Juliet (and probably some others) die horrible gruesome deaths. To sum up--Shakespearean tragedy=death in all parties)

The play is going. This Friday I'm begging on my hands and knees for a third production in the winter. Not going to happen, I know, but I'm trying anyhow. I'm looking at three musicals--The Secret Garden, A Little Princess, and Beauty and the Beast (Beauty and the Beast is for show. We can't do it. It costs $1000 a night in royalties alone.) My life is consumed with this

Also I am house sitting.

I'm knitting. What, I can't show you because I have neither the camara, nor the hookup at my 'job' Basically all you need to know is Ethel--done. Stewart--done knitting, still no zipper and all the ends are flying loose like tails in the wind. A new shawl (...Amelia sounds good) in handpaint from the Puyallup Fair in the Yarn Harlots ever so coveted pattern. It's purdy. A purse for felting from interweave (...Fabrizio. I'm naming it Fabrizio. Not fitting when you see the color scheme, but we'll survive. I think) And a shirt that the puppy just ripped apart yesterday so I am no longer working on it. Pictures soon...eventually

My big thing now is charting musical logos. I've got Wicked and Jane Eyre done and I'm working on Les Mis, but that one's going to be huge because it's so intricate (wicked is like, 80 x 150, and that's just Cosette's face) I'll try little Women eventually. It's a whole bunch of really curvy lines, so maybe knit a white square, embroider and then felt (I'm fleting them all so I can sew them together and make a blanket or something. Like a patchwork quilt) I'm ignoring Light in the Piazza and The Secret Garden because...I don't have that muuch dedication (or the money to buy 40 progressive shades of yellow that radiate from the silloutte of Clara. Yee-ha)

I'll post charts when I can, but as of now, no dice. I love colour work.

Much Love.
