Song words!

Gotta remember them! The panto is two weeks today!

Scene Six


Scene Three

Large amounts

The worst part is, not only do I have to remember the words, I now also have to remember the 'dances' that go with them.

Hellsing quote of the moment

Whilst talking about a video posted on the Internet, Walter says:

"There is nothing to indicate the time or place of production. I assume it was made three weeks ago in Coventry."

That's a pretty big assumption considering there's nothing to indicate where or when it was made.

Phoenix Wright

Tee hee, this icon made me giggle.

I love Phoenix Wright.

Driving lessons

I did emergency stops this week on my driving lesson. It was horrible! Really, it made my heart go all funny and the adrenalin pump and I couldn't drive properly afterwards! I hope that doesnt come up on my test. Apparently there's a 50/50 chance. If they have to do it on my test, I hope they do it right at the end - not at the beginning when I still have enough time left to completely mess up my test.

I did another test

What type of Fae are you?

New laptop ^^

Got a new laptop today! Yay! After several hours of trying to figure out how to link my new computer with my old computer, I finally did it. How long will it take to transfer?

Media of the Moment/Hellsing

I've been absolutely hooked on Hellsing the past few days. I tried reading the manga, but I didn't really like it, but I started watching the anime online and was absolutely obsessed. I think I'm probably going to buy all the episodes on DVD. The English voices are terrible, but not too bad once you get used to them (they're not half as bad as the Irish accents in the manga though - I can't understand anything they say!). The music in Hellsing is brilliant too - music in anime isn't something I normally notice, but in Hellsing it's brilliant. I could quite easily end up buying the soundtrack to listen to as well.

So yeah, here, have a opening theme:

Last night was possibly the best rehearsal we have EVER had. It was so much fun. We did the last scene of the panto last night, which we had never done before, having only got the script for it the week before. I felt so happy at the end. I felt like I had actually got married! It really is the best wedding ceremony ever. I'm stood there trying not to laugh! It's such a serious ceremony but it's just so funny nobody can help but laugh. It's so good! I had my doubts about the ending, but now we've rehearsed it, I think it's good.

There are still issues though - for example, the song at the end of the first act. Although it's a whole cast song, the vast majority is sung by Ali and Sapphire, and our voices just aren't compatible. If we have the song low enough for me to be able to hit all the notes well, it's too low for Sapphire to sing, but if we put it a bit higher so that Sapphire is comfortable, I'd say at least 50% of the notes are then beyond my comfortable reach. Gah!

Lines are going well. I'm not really having too much trouble learning them. Lines have never been a problem for me really, apart from finding the time to learn them. But they all seem to be in there now, and there's not really a problem any more. Yay!

I normally try to compress my lines down so I can print them all out on one A4 sheet, but this year I've had a lot more lines than I ever have before, so maybe this year I'll have to do them on two A4 sheets. The sheets help since I can print out a million copies and stick them everywhere, so anywhere I go I see my lines and they work themselves into my brain every time I see them.

But overall, panto's going well.

Ema Skye, future scientific investigator...


I may be a foot too tall and five years too old to cosplay Ema. Who cares?

There's still quite a bit I need to do to this costume, but this is the bare bones of it at the moment.
