The phantom's been invaded by an opera?

Location: Desk
Listening to: The hum of the computer. And the clicky-typing-sound of fingers on a keyboard.
Days til Graduation: I honestly couldn't tell you right now. Low 50's, high 40's?
Followers: FIVE!!

I HAVE A NEW FOLLOWER!! A GIRL follower!! One who might actually care about all of my boy-gushing and obsessiveness (not that I doubt that the rest of you care, but no one can relate quite like another teenage girl!). You have no idea how excited this makes me. Hi, Hannah! :)

The past 36 hours have been kind of crazy. I worked yesterday, but they sent me home early (but not before I got to watch Princess and the Frog two times and witnessed someone come in complaining that we left the pins in their movies. These people had attempted to rip the pins out of the movies, totally destroying the cases, and then wanted us to give them credit on their account for inconveniencing them even though they're the ones who damaged our property and they totally got to watch their movies because of it).

Then I went to a local high school production of Phantom: The American Musical Sensation. It was kind of a ridiculous show. Exboyfriend #3 played the Phantom, and he has an amazingly good singing voice. But the plot was terrible. It was kind of like the Andrew Lloyd Webber version of Phantom, but the libretto seems to have been written by a third grade class. There's one song called "Phantom Fugue", which consisted mostly of, "The opera's been invaded by a phantom...the opera's been invaded by a phantom! The opera's been invaded by a ghooooOOOOoooOOOOoooost!" and occasional a "If you follow him you're following a phantom!"

After the show, my friends and I went to talk to Exboyfriend #3. And he had the good grace to point out that I wasn't having a panic attack about being in his presence. I pretended to kick him in the crotch and walked away. But he told one of my friends that he's glad we're "friendly" again. Which is kind of laughable. But whatever!

Today I went to see a performance of The Matchmaker that Alex and Alison and some of my other buds are in. It was hilarious. I'm going to all of the other performances. But seriously, that show had me cracking up all over the place. It was just....awesome. That's all I can think of to say. Awesome.

Then Alison had people over. And we watched Repo: The Genetic Opera (which rocked) and Avatar (which I was able to rent before street release - one of the perks of working at a video rental place). White Chocolate was present, but he spent a good deal of the time comforting Melissa, who was having some kind of boy crisis that she wouldn't explain to anyone except him and Alison. Which cause a little bit of 6th-grade drama. But again...whatever!

Besides, I get to see him tomorrow anyway. We're practicing our duet again. I'm supersupersuper excited. Aaahhhhhhhhhh!! You have no idea.

I'm sorry if this is kind of a lame post. It's just that I haven't slept a lot more than 6 hours in the past two or three days and my brain is kind of fried. I'm suffering from BEDA fatigue. Don't worry, though. I'm sure I'll be slightly more entertaining someday? Hopefully?

Yawwwwnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn. It's time for me to sleep now.

Night night, internet!

    I spotted a new member on the Teen Scene, and wanted to come say hi--coincidentally falling in love with your blog! Yours was actually the first one I checked today ;)

    I love Phantom, btw. And the obsessiveness over boys...I'm finding myself in good company!
