 ...Or is it?

So Seussical is finally over - after 9 months of grueling rehearsals, our show drew to a close on Friday night. I was all prepared to quit drama after the show, I'd paid my half-fees, e-mailed a leaving e-mail, done everything. But I was a complete emotional wreck on Friday, tears everywhere, hugs from just about everything. Long story short, I ran up to my dressing room shouting "I CAN'T LEAVE! I CAN'T LEAVE!"!!!

My feet currently ache like merry Hell, because I'm trying out bits and pieces for mon fabulous Halloween costume - hence my favourite (and only) pair of heels being on, and oh dear, my poor little toes just aren't accustomed to them.

Not a lot else to say at the moment. Ummm...I'm looking after a newt at the moment, and there's a moth outside my window which is creeping me out.

Good-pie!

 I haven't posted in a while - I'm determined to keep posting so I don't forget and let this go down the drain like last time!

So, I've just been to Ikea...Not that really matters. I stole a handful of those tiny pencils near the door, got a new chest of drawers and a bag of mini Daims. Which are like the best chocolates ever. It completely amuses me that in Sweden there's sweets called Skum and Snore, you can buy them in Ikea.

Not a lot else to say...I'm in a very creative mood tonight so I might be back later with some drabble or what not.

As you all might know (it is SLIGHTLY mentioned in the Writer's Block of today!), today is International Speak Like A Pirate Day. Why does no-one around here have fun? Here I was trying to talk in a pirate way (although I did sound more like an Irish paedophile, but leaving that aside...) and no-one would join in with me! Rachel brought an eye-patch to school today which Jessica then claimed. I still don't know if that was because of today or whether she was just being a bit strange. I hope it was the former.

Anyhoo...

I'm going to be a right globe-trotter next year!

In May, I might be going to Spain with school. That's if my mum's powers of persuasion are good enough. It should be fun, but I'm wishing I put myself down for Paris. Rach, Jess and possibly Amy are all going to Spain, but all my other friends are going to Paris. Oh well, at least I'm going to be hanging around beaches, in the sunshine, surrounded by hot Spanish boys. Or are the hot ones German? Whatever. It should still be fun.

And in July I'm off to Canada! I'm uber excited - a week in Toronto, staying in a huge posh glass hotel, surrounded by safe streets and fabulous shopping, then a week in Niagara, with an indoor water park at the hotel we're staying at and...waterfalls. I can't wait!

I'm off on a last.fm spree. Catch you later x

Okay, so on Friday I MAY have been ill, but now I wish I went to school.

We were having this opening ceremony thing (don't know why - our new school opened 10 months ago!) and Jamie Murray was invited. Big deal, I thought. Now I wish I was there.

Apparantly there was a lot of banter - including STV being there to film it, and my 30-something-married-with-kids music teacher told our class "I was walking behind him while he was looking at the practice rooms and I just wanted to squeeze his bum, it's SO CUTE!!!", resulting in my friend (who is now on the German exchange, on the flight to Germany at this minute) shouting after her when she walked down the corridor "you squeeze his ass, Mrs. G!!!".

Oh fun times.

Oh fun times I missed.

Okay, so I haven't posted since Wednesday (shocker!) because I've been il.. Practically my whole Thursday and Friday has been spent in bed, watching daytime TV - Jeremy Kyle, Ricki lake, Whose Line Is It Anyway?, 8 Simple Rules etc.

I dragged myself up yesterday afternoon, as I felt better, and then Mum comes home and says "are you well enough to go out tonight?". Now, since I'd never been told anything about going out, Dad was busy making spag bol and everything, I'm guessing I looked confused.
"Dad's taking you out."
Cue more puzzled looks from me. She passed me an envelope and inside were two tickets to see The Mighty Boosh Live in Edinburgh that night! Let's just say I wasn't just a happy bunny, but rather an ecstatic one.

After 20 minutes of changing clothes, wolfing down my tea, back-combing my hair (which went flat straight away!) and poking glitter in my eyes (which was an accident, all I saw were sparkles for the rest of the night. Or was that Noel's outfits?), we left.

AND IT WAS ONE OF THE BEST NIGHTS OF MY LIFE!!!

I returned home just past 11 with a paper bag with the Boosh logo on it containing a t-shirt, programme, Boosh crayons, stickers and press-on tattoos, and of course, I huge smile on my previously unwell face.

Tonight I'm going to see Seven Brides For Seven Brothers. I can't believe I'm going to the theatre 2 days in a row...But it's like I'm living my dreams!

We're still alive! Apparantly this LHC experiment is not due to happen until the 21st October. Gee, thanks for telling us Switzerland.

Not much to post, apart from at school today we got these weird Stirling Council wallets to keep our lunch cards in. They say if we eat school lunches for ages, we'll build up points through this website and win prizes such as vouchers, iPods and Wiis. The catch is you need to eat school lunches for like a year to do so. The healthier the food, the more points - although how soup is 5 points and a panini stuffed with cheese/curry/pepperoni etc. is 40, I'll never know. Surely soup contians like a gazillion less calories? Oh well. I'll never know. I never use the canteen anyway, unless I suddenly get desperate for some Zucolade (that's Lucozade, by the way) or a Galaxy now and a again.

Now THIS is the best part. If we register for the prize-winning service thingymajig, we get an iTunes voucher. No, not £10. Not £20. 79p. Enough for one song. How big of them.

And speaking of big, I'm off to watch Sex and the City. Sure it'll be gripping as per usual lol!

Okay, so, apparantly some Swiss guys are going to do research into atoms or whatever tomorrow, and there's a one in 50, 000, 000 chance it could create a black hole and end the world.

So that got me thinking - if you knew the world was going to end, how would you spend the last day?

I would make ammends with everyone I'd ever fallen out with. Cliched, I know, but how would you like to die on bad terms with everyone? I would also make an effort to listen to every song on my iPod. I just can't help the odd track or four if I've got it on shuffle.

Do you really think we're going to die tomorrow? I seriously doubt it will happen, but think about it. It might. It might it might it might.

It's the end of the world...

Today we took my 3-year-old brother, Scott, to the cinema for the first time. We saw Wall-E, which has to be one of the sweetest films I've ever seen. I'd heard mixed reviews - many people said it was cute, but others said it was boring because there was a lack of talking. But for a film which mainly consisted of "Waaaaall-E!" and "Eeev-a!" it was pretty decent. There were parts I switched off, but all in all it was worth the money. And Scott was actually well behaved! He shared the popcorn and sat still for the majority of it.



I tried to do my first mixed-media piece of artwork. However, it went a bit wrong.

And I really should be learning French vocab for tomorrow at the moment. C'est merde!

The Most Important Thing

“Have you ever wondered what would happen if Tic Tacs disappeared off the face of the earth?”
 
I rolled over on the floor and looked up at him.
 
“No. Why?” Bleeker replied, sucking some more pineapple juice out the carton in his hand.
 
“Just wondering. What would it be like if your favourite things just kinda…vanished?”
 
“I guess I’d be upset. But losing Tic Tacs isn’t like the end of the world, I’d probably move on. Either that or sink into a huge depression and only come crawling out my bed on Saturdays.”
 
I continued to read my magazine, lying on my stomach next to his bed. What WOULD it be like if our favourite things were, like, sucked into a black hole? Would we move on, or just get all lazy and upset? You know, in the same way if you were banished from the gym for stealing exercise equipment, or something.
 
“Whoa, that’s pretty bad. I never knew Tic Tacs were that important!”
 
We lay in silence for a bit, apart from the weird, squelchy sound of Bleeker sucking up the last of his juice.
 
“I think you should go”, I finally said.
 
“But I live here!”
 
“Yeah, I know. Just, like, disperse yourself. Get out for a bit.”
 
“O-kaaay…”
 
He seemed confused, but he continued to put on his baseball boots and favourite red hoodie. Next thing I knew he was out the door.
 
And then I realised what missing the most important thing in life was like.
