Writer's Block: Between the slices

What's your favorite sandwich? Do you make it yourself or go somewhere special to buy it? What's in it?!

 
Look, Question of the Day, I know sandwiches are very exciting. Why else would you use a question mark AND an exclamation point when asking what I put inside of mine? But.... You're starting to sound like Zoidberg from Futurama, Question Box. I'm really concerned about you....

tight-lacing!


OK, so I found a corset online I would REALLY like. I just got a breast reduction surgery, and I want to do tight-lacing as a way of further enhancing my new figure! :)
Mu uiltimate goal is to get my waist to 31 inches before I order and 25 inches once tightlacing is done.
The one I want is custom-made to my measurements by a trained professional in America (no sweatshops!) and costs $300. The problem is, I don't have $300. I'm thinking of entering some wiriting contests, but it'll take a while before I know for sure whether I win or not.

Here's the one I want:

my first REAL theatre audition!

First off, HUGE THANKS to everyone who commented on my last post and told me their stories.  It really did help me a lot!

OK, so tonight I skipped out on my classes and went to an audition at a community theatre for the musical Oliver. It was the first NON-school audition I've ever been to.

There were 2 segments: singing and dancing. I sang The Stepsister's Lament from Cinderella by Rodgers and Hammerstein, which is a GREAT song! I think I was in the top 25% percent of the singers, based off volume and tone, (KNOCK WOOD) but the pianist they had SUCKED. She literally couldn't read my music and played sour notes at least an octave above where my voice was! By the end of the audition, people were singing a cappella even though it technically wasn't allowed. And no one argued with them, because it was THAT BAD.

I did okay at the dancing part. It was easier than I thought it would be, just a lot of very simple, almost mechanical moves. There were some people in their 50s and 60s there, so it was fun to watch THEM dance! :D (...but seriously, it's sweet to see senior citizens participating in the community.)

They are doing callbacks sometime in the future and that's when you'd read for the parts, if they're considering you for one. I was auditioning for Nancy, but if I'm lucky as HELL I will end up with Bet (KNOCK WOOD!), since she's also an alto and her character is my age.

If I'm not lucky, I'll get a part in the chorus, which will be fine by me, too. I need something for my resume and even dancing in the background sounds like fun at the moment! :)

I have 2 more auditions next week for two different theaters and I'll prep for those over the weekend. (one requires a song and 2 contrasting monologues, the other needs you to read from the script and sing a song from the musical, Camelot.)

Also, I'm officially joining a Polish folk-dancing troupe! No prior experience required; I think they're just looking for young people to add to their members, but I'm okay with that! Again, it looks like fun, good for networking, good to get in shape, and something to put in the "special talents" portion of my resume!

this is UNFAIR

I didn’t get the lead role in the play.

Not only did I not get the lead role, I didn’t get ANY role!!!

When I saw the listings and tried to talk to the director this morning, she was gone- I’d checked 3 times and she wasn’t there, even though her office was unlocked. The fourth time she was there but walked out while I stood, less than 6 feet away, saying “Um…”.

She opened a door and as she was in the hallway, I called her name and she paused ever-so-slightly before shutting the door anyways. I tried to follow her down the halls but she was too far ahead and class was about to start. THE TEACHER DITCHED ME. She wouldn’t even answer my inquiry for constructive criticism, which is what I ask every year after getting inevitably rejected. Third year in a row and not a single part, not even playing the maid.

The first years she told me that it was seniority and to keep auditioning and there’s a part out there for me somewhere. This year she tells me I “wasn’t animated enough” and “were you having an off-day?”; she then told me that she “didn’t see me mixing with everyone else”. It’s SUCH BULLSHIT. Not only should I have seniority this year but if I was so animated the last 2 years, why didn’t she cast me then?!

The girl who ended up getting the lead- the Senator’s daughter- actually complimented me, saying she didn’t know I was such a great actress. So… the lead thinks I’m a great actress, and I don’t even get 2 lines, despite my loyalty. Brilliant.

Anyways, then she’s all “I’m concerned for your feelings, I really am; maybe you can join crew.” My eyes were literally tearing up and my voice was so choked I could barely answer. I was humiliated. She is the most insincere bitch ever.

For the record, I ROCKED my audition. I'm sure of it. I came in and read over the script for 1-2 hours everyday, weeks before the audition. I was prepared. I was confident. I DESERVED a part.

Writer's Block: Copy that

How do you feel about human cloning? Do you think the long-term societal impact will be positive or negative? Why?


I think it's quite a bad idea. Stem cell research to grow organs, sure. Making new human beings who may be treated differently, fucking with nature, contributing to an already immense overpopulation problem. And what about the possibility of harvesting organs for living clones? I'm sure there would at LEAST be a blackmarket for organs attained this way. PLUS, narcissistic idiots out there could have a bunch of mini-thems running around. We do not, I repeat, WE DO NOT NEED 12 DONALD TRUMPS.

The only upside is the possibility of saving endangered and previously extinct species. But if that leads to the justification of factory farming animals like elephants the way we factory farm cattle, fuck it. Plus, with limited genetic samples, it would lead to inbreeding and a weaker species.

I'm writing this on pain meds.

I just got a breast reduction surgery. I'm down from an F-Cupo to a B-cup or something like that. I am also wiriting this in the dark on pain meds. FEEL FREE TO COMMENT.

1) I thought my anesthesioologists name was dr hurt but i later found out his name was dr HURTH. >.> He was a really nice asian guy who pumped me full of IVs, pills, etc.

2) my brother was in the room with me while i was on meds and i kept trying to pet his hair, insisted i wear his hat for 20 minutes.

3) i had a dream once i was compltely under that they made me get onto an operating table and then polished my glasses and gave them back to me, but it was onoly sa dream because i didnty wear my glasses.

4) i had an annoying channel changer thatt i mnanaged to make even more annoying by making my brother watch the brest feeding channel. hey, guess what? I THINK I MADE HIM GAY NOW. :D

5) as they were wheeling me down to surgery. i sweat to GOD i started humming the zones song from Finding Nemo, but i could be wrong

6_ all im gonna be able to eat is ginger ale and grraham crackers. BUT I GET THE NAME BRAND SUTFF!!! WOO-HOO!!!!

7) `when i needed to use the bathroom post-surgery, the nurse pulled down my pants for me, so that was really awkward AND unneccessary.

8) they sent me homewith a giant plastic bag to throw up in in case i needed to.

9) i kept wanting to call my BFF Amy but mom said she was in school, so my mom took a bunch of videos of me acting really silly under "happy juice", as the doctorcalled it, although it COULD haveb been cal;l;ed MOOSE JUICE. or footloose, but i doubt it.

10) I just had a dream thjat Dolly Parton taught my little sister how to shoplifty as a grocery store.

EDIT: I JUST REALIZED, 3 HOURS LATER, THAT I STOLE A HOSPITAL GOWN.
OK, so I have 6 days to wait until something very important happens to me. (Something that will potentially change my life, which I will keep you posted on. The reason I never update, though I check my LJ almost every day and keep a journal religiously, is that nothing worth reading ever happens in my life!)

ANYWAYS, I have nothing but 6 days of WAITING, and I think I might go crazy in the meantime. (Funny because I have been waiting for 2 months already now!) My goal was to fangirl about a new guy every day until I ran out of days but unfortunately I somehow ended up stuck on one obscure indie dude who I have seen almost the ENTIRE repetoire of, including the music career no one's ever heard of and those 11 episodes he played an intern on ER.

SO, If someone could please tell me something interesting to get obsessed with for the next 6 days, you would RULE my flist. Thanks!

HELP MEEEEE!!!

Poll #1370072 Complicated Cheating Question.

What do you do when the guy you like helped a bitch you hate cheat on her bf, who is your semi-acquaintance?

you tell your semi-acquaintance friend, no matter how awkward it is.
1(50.0%)
you don't tell your semi-friend but drop hints his gf cheated.
1(50.0%)
you don't tell your semi-acquaintance friend immediately, but confront the girl and tell her that if she doesn't tell her bf she cheated, you will.
0(0.0%)
you date the guy who she cheated WITH and say nothing to her oblivious bf.
0(0.0%)


KEEP IN MIND that your semi-acquaintance friend may not know you well enough to trust you and a possible good deed may blow up in your face. (If he trusts his unfaithful gf more than you or she says you're lying.)

Also, the guy you like (who she cheated on her bf/your semi-friend WITH) doesn't care whether or not you tell, he likes you anyways- until he meets you in person, at least.
