It’s meme time!




– Who did you last get angry with?

I last got irritated with Chungy, for not inviting me to the Margaret Cho thing. But I haven’t been truly angry for some time.

– What is your weapon of choice?

Psychological warfare

– Would you hit a member of the opposite sex?

Surely. No scruples whatsoever.

– How about of the same sex?

Certainly. I thwapped Marcelina quite a few times with my “Krup You” inflatable newspaper last night.

– Who was the last person who got really angry at you?

Erm…. I really can’t think of a recent occasion.

– What is your pet peeve?

People infringing excessively on my time.

– Do you keep grudges, or can you let them go easily?

If I’m not very fond of a person, I keep grudges almost indefinitely. If they’re my friend, they’re forgiven instantly.



– What is one thing you’re supposed to do daily that you haven’t done in a long time?

Wear my dental mouthguard thing.

– What is the latest you’ve ever woken up?

Maybe 2:30 PM? I’m sure I’ve slept later when ill, though.

I’m quite curious as to what’s happened to Brittany Bond, a childhood friend that moved away in 4th grade.

I fell asleep at the keyboard.

– Have you ever watched an infomercial all the way through (one of the long ones…)?

– How many times did you hit the snooze button on your alarm clock today?

Today, I didn’t set an alarm. On school days, it’s usually 3 or 4 times. Or less.



– What is your overpriced yuppie beverage of choice?

My only yuppie beverage is the Starbucks Tazoberry, a blend of ice, tea, and raspberry juice.

– Meat eaters:

Bite me, I’m an O+ blood type. I’ve seriously considered vegitarianism, because I’m so twitchy about animal rights, but the realization that it would be detrimental to my body to not eat meat put my crusade on hold.

– What is the greatest amount of alcohol you’ve had in one sitting/outing/event?

About 5mL of a Chocolate Marcelina, 3-parts chocolate soy milk and 1-part Kahlua. But that was just out of curiosity, and I’ve never since had the desire to consume any sort of alcoholic beverage. My curiosity has been fulfilled.

– Have you ever used a professional diet company?

No, and I doubt I ever will.

– Do you have an issue with your weight?

::blinks:: No….

About 9 different nude models at Parsons, 1 scary naked man in the Hot Tub Incident (as chronicled in “Dischord of the Rings”), and plenty of half-naked cast members in various theatrical productions. Hurrah for Jesuit’s coed changing rooms. Oy.

Buy the ultimate supercomputer and stalk some famous people.

– Would you rather be rich, or famous?

Famous, I guess.

– Would you accept a boring job if it meant you would make megabucks?

I would accept the job, make said megabucks, then quit and find something more exciting.

– Have you ever stolen anything?

Once, and by accident. I returned later to reimburse the shopkeeper and explain the mistake.

The progression of my vocal, acting, and CGing abilities.

Yes. In a first grade spelling test, I changed the spelling of “ov” to “of” when we were checking our answers. I still feel guilty. Never cheated since.

– What did you do today that you’re proud of?

Wrote more music and integrated it in the script of MAA. Wow, the end is going to prod buttock.



– What item (or person) of your friends would you most want to have for your own?

Monica’s drawing talent

Kill me. If anyone touches my room, they’re dead.

I’ve never been in what I considered a dating relationship, so nope.

– Have you ever wished you had a physical feature different from your own?

I really don’t like my profile and I wish the scale of my upper body matched the scale of my lower body, but for the most part, I like my body, so I suppose it’s just the profile now.

Mon, Mags, and Alicey’s drawing ability and Linda Eder’s high belt.

– Do you wish you’d come up with this survey?

Not really


* Finally, what is your favorite deadly sin?

Pride. I am Egozilla!

I developed 8 rolls of film today during a free period. I’d have gotten 16 done today, had Mrs. Yoshii not decided to completely waste the class period. Bah. Anyway, I’ve now developed rolls #1-20, and I have 21-24 reeled on. Just five left to go, as the 30th roll is only half-spent. Bwee, I can’t wait to start printing! ::starts going through negative sleeves and marking favourites::

::is still singing::

Just got back from the West Side Story sing along. Augh, I keep forgetting how much I absolutely adore that musical. ::sniffs::

For the costume, I eventually decided on Angua, as it was ready-made and looked nifty, but this was probably a mistake. When the affair turned out to be a costume contest, Marcelina and I felt a bit silly, as she was wearing her blue fairy outfit, claiming to be an alternate universe Tinkerbell. At least 5 different women stopped her to admire her wings and her outfit, while all I got was a bunch of scary old men leering at my breastplate. Wah. But in the end, justice triumphed, as Marcelina won the contest. There were ten entries total, and though two of the costumers had fabulous outfits, Marcelina received by far the most cheering. She went home with the newly-released West Side Story DVD. Go her!

Anyway, taking a nod from audience-participatory shows like Rocky Horror, at this showing, we were given goody bags filled with WSS-related trinkets and a guide sheet that told when each piece should be used. The clickers, meant to immitate the gang snaps, became an audience favourite. In every tense moment, the audience erupted in clicks. It was a fairly cool effect. We also had blow-up “Krup You” newspapers that Marcelina and I refused to comment on. We all bopped each other over the head whenever a Jet was thwapped with a newspaper in “Dear Officer Krupke”. We waved little plastic flags in “America”. We blew wedding bubbles in “One Hand, One Heart”. We had West Side Story Kleenex for the several tearjerker moments in the show. And of course, we sang along! The woman next to me was rather impressed with me and Marcelina. Har.

So that’s today’s story.

Priscilla’s Latest Subtle and Cunning Plan:

1. Poke Marcelina until she chooses to go to Bryn Mawr*, a college she is already looking upon quite favorably.

2. Send psychic mind rays to Neil Gaimain’s daughter, Holly, and make her prefer Bryn Mawr over Smith (she’s currently waffling between the two).

3. Send MarcelinaScout to find and befriend Neil Gaiman’s daughter.

4. Find out when Neil Gaiman is visiting Holly in college, then politely stalk him.

5. Introduce myself as the girl who hugged him, gave him gingerless ginger cookies, and asked him to say into a tape recorder that Lincoln is better than Wilson.

6. Frowl in consternation when he runs away screaming.

A good plan, I believe. And indeed subtle and cunning!

* This is not the reason I am poking Marcelina to go to Bryn Mawr. I was poking her long before I found out about Holly Gaiman. She would be only 11 miles away from me! We could chill! Life would be merry! I would not have to endure Life Without Schlienen!

Wow. I’m a very special person.

Me: Hi, this is Priscilla, can I please speak to Pris– Rachel?

Elizabeth’s Mom: Hi, Priscilla, this is Elizabeth’s house.

Me: Wow. I just called completely the wrong number.

Bwee! Tomorrow at the Angelika, there’s a sing-along screening of West Side Story! And Schlien and I are going! The first 25 that arrive in costume (either WSS or the musical of our choice) get in first, so I’m looking for something Anita-ish. Of course, because we can go as characters from other musicals, I’m considering donning my Angua costume and challenging anyone that denies the validity of “Men at Arms: The Musical”. Har. ::goes to look though CDs for ideas::

Meanwhile, Man of La Mancha goes swimmingly. Mama (Ms. Morton, the accompanist–hee!) and Mr. Oliver finally decided to drop “It’s All the Same” a minor third, making the high notes beltable, and much more easily singable considering the strain of the table dance. So hurrah!

Quotes of the day:

Loh: Electric charge is concentrated on pointy things.

Marcelina: Like bacteria!

Oliver: [to the Muleteers] You know her! You know her very well.

Tom: Biblically.

Me: And I have the receipts to prove it!

Me: Aww, you know she’s just jealous of Aldonza’s collection of venereal diseases.
