I just saw The Princess and the Frog. OH MY GOD, SO GOOD. I am so glad Disney decided to keep on making 2D animated films. It was sooooo awesome. They reference all the other princesses, and the villain is SO RIDICULOUSLY AWESOME, and the music is pretty freaking good even though it wasn't Alan Menken like I thought it was. (It's some score composer plus Randy Newman. WHAT. WHY, RANDY NEWMAN, WHY DO YOU HAVE TO RUIN EVERYTHING.)

No, but seriously, it was awesome. The stylized parts were SUPER awesome, and the music was good, and it kind of reminded me a little of the Swan Princess which is also adorable. Heeee.

So now I am SUPER excited for the New Orleans trip. :D

Oh and then I went out and bought the soundtrack and a Lady Gaga album. Yessssss.

(Also, I don't know if I mentioned this, but Lady Gaga has always been rather awesome just for being named after a Queen song.)

Wraaaauuuuugh. I am just having an emotion-wrecking year.

I saw Enchanted today with Kim L. and Melissa before their parents came to pick them up--it was fantastic! I love Menken's music. The animation was amazing, and honestly I was sad that more of it wasn't animated, buuut, that's life. I hear there's talk of a sequel in which Idina Menzel would sing and I AM SO IN, RIGHT NOW. It was PG, which I think made it better--Kim and Melissa and I were cracking our heads off through the whole movie, and I can guarantee most of the little kids in the theatre were not. Well, definitely not as much.

Sooooo I bought the soundtrack on the way home. I am very bad at not impulse-buying good soundtracks.

ALSO! Yesterday I spent $80 on craft supplies at WalMart! Woah. Woah. The best thing? A TINY IRON. IT IS ABOUT FOUR INCHES TALL. IT IS AS AWESOME AS MR. TUSKS, FROM QWANTZ. However, I now have (pretty much) everything to finish my first steampunk prop, an aether gun. The only thing I don't know if I have is wood stain and primer, because I assumed my dad would have some, but I don't know yet. Do you know how hard it is to find a stupid cowboy capgun? I had less luck at Halloween, and TOYS 'R' US HAD NOTHING. Screw you Toys 'R' Us, you've proven useless my whole life. Forget you. WalMart has my back.

Soooo, that's my project for later this week. Among others (like a new purse, because my Hawaiiana Jones bag is dying! Noooooo!).

So I came home and watching Pushing Daisies (yay!) and then my freaking computer crashed. GODDAMNIT. And this time it won't restart... and the PcHelp guys have said previously it might cause me to lose all my computer's memory... FUCK FUCK MCFUCKERTONS. I am PRAYING TO GOD it restarts tomorrow morning. I don't know why it would, but, you know, MIRACLES, PLZ.

So instead I put the Enchanted soundtrack on repeat and completed this project I've wanted to do for a few years, which I will not put behind a cut because I am so pround of it. =D Originally Josh mentioned he wanted to buy a pair of red and a pair of green chucks and wear them, and I told him I would, too. But he never did and I have not been able to successfully find two sets of cheap chucks in red and green. BUT! Yesterday at Target I happened to spy a cheap pair of ripoff chucks in black with pinstripes. Plus they were on clearance! $7! Heck yes. Inspiration struck like a bitchslap.

And here's the fantastic product (sans laces, b/c they were drying when I took this photo):

How awesome is that?! All my roomies and I are so excited for Christmas already, it's actually pretty sad. And awesome. For once in a long time I feel excited for Christmas.

Now if I didn't suddenly have a gazillion large projects fall in my lap this month, AND a fucking broken computer... Goddamnit.

Um, also, Enchanted did not have the Indy IV trailer with it. It must be coming out with Ntl. Treasure... goddamnit!!!!

I am also excited for this break because I'm going to start taking pictures of all the hats I have in my collection. RAWK.

Just some quotes (all from Menken and Ashman) about how I've been feeling of late:

Someone show me a way to get out of here/ 'cause I constantly pray I'll get out of here/ please won't somebody say I'll get out of here/ someone tell Lady Luck that I'm stuck here//
Look at this stuff/isn't it neat?/Wouldn't you think my collection's complete?/Wouldn't you think I'm the girl/the girl who has ev'rything?/Look at this trove/treasures untold/How many wonders can one cavern hold?/Lookin' around here you'd think/(Sure) she's got everything//I've got gadgets and gizmos aplenty/I've got whozits and whatzits galore/(You want thingamabobs?/I got twenty)/But who cares?/No big deal/I want more//.../Wish I could be/Part of that world//
Santa Fe/are you there?/Do you swear you won't forget me?/If I foudn you would you let me come and stay?/I'm not getting any younger/and before my dying day/I want space/not just air/let 'em laugh in my face, I don't care/Save a place/I'll be there...//

That's all.

Wow.. the first day of senior year. And what a day it has been! I got up 15 minutes late, hopped in the shower, ate a great and yummy breakfast of Corn Chex, milk, orange juice, and bacon... got in the car and listened to Newsies on the ride in. That definitely got me pumped. Band is good, music theory was just plain fun, World Religions is exciting, US politics and government, however... that is one class I could live without. Oh, well. English, fun, as always, Mr. Hemmert is hilariously "grumpy." Fifth period Spanish was not too bad, Senora Perfilio is MUCH nicer than I expected (and heard), and I am glas that this year is lots of culture, and less language. And AP Calculus... Dr. Carter is freakin' hilarious. Then sectionals, which did not go too well... ugh, we have to set the third movement this week! Afterward, I listened to Newsies on the way home, and determined that Alan Menken is better than Andrew LLoyd Weber... mind you, Andrew Lloyd Weber is awesome, but Menken is THAT MUCH COOLER. Want to know why? Newsies, Little Shop, Aladdin, the Little Mermaid. That's why. Hm, what else? Well... Pat stole Mrs. Fisher's elf this morning before school started and we moved several times but have not yet found a hallway spot for this year... unfortunately it looks like we'll be stuck in the Lobby. Oh well. =^n.n^= Gotta go finish my AP Calc summer work for tomorrow... yikes!
