HEY CENTRE KIDS!!!!
I’m coming to town on Tuesday to see the senior art show. Is convenient because I have to drive to Lexington earlier that day to pick up a thingy, so i’ll roll into Danville around the 1-ish or something. The show doesn’t start till 4.
Will someone, ANYONE, PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD EAT AT GUADIE’S WITH ME!!!!!!!!!!!
You do not understand the craving, the yearning, it’s terrible. The Guad holds power over you long after you graduate. I MUST HAVE A GRILLED CHICKEN QUESADILLA!!!
Still, I have that whole “don’t want to eat there all by my lonesome self” thing, and I need to catch up with a lot of you kids anyway.
Anyone? Anyone? Pleeeeeeease?????
Graduation is over, I am no longer a college student. Actually, I am no longer a student, period. This will take some getting used to (probably won’t realize it until the fall when I don’t go back to school).
Having Carleton around during the time of pre-graduation chaos was wonderful, and having him around during post-graduation relaxation is even better. I feel very inspired to do the cleaning, unpacking, stuff-purging bit.
So much to do, but now I have so much motivation to do it! It will surely take me a week alone to unpack and clean and get organized, but that won’t be without regular resting and visiting breaks (Dave, Ken, and Brendan, prepare thyselves!)
I think the summer will be good.
In other news, D Flo and I are the masters of Taboo (mogui! mogui!)
So, here it is, I finally got some photos of my senior show pieces. These are what I’ve been working on aaaaaaaalll semester. There’s one photo missing because my digital camera decided to mess up on one.
Lots and lots of pictures…
I HAVE A JOB!!! YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYY!!!!
I got a props internship at Long Wharf Theatre in Connecticut which I had applied for in early April. It is very exciting for me, and is another wonderful load lifted off my shoulders what with not having to worry about what I’m going to do next year (That, and I can now officially answer the neverending questions of “So what are you going to do after you graduate?”)
The senior art majors defense was today and went quite well. I was able to form coherent thoughts and sentences even though my face was continuously trying to slide off. Lots of people showed up to the opening and it was really fun, I got a lot of great compliments on my pieces and on the show in general (and I made a trade for one of Augustine’s paintings! Yay!) I’ll be sure to post pictures once I get them.
Tonight was also the Jr/Sr drama dinner at Tony’s. It was very pleasant; I got a sock puppet as a gift and learned how to play Cricket (sort of).
Overall, things are going awesomely, with the only damper being that I am very very sick. However, tomorrow after my algorithms final I intend to take some cold medicine and sleep for about 3 days.
I HAVE A JOB!!!!!!!!
I’m not ready for crunch time yet!
Saw Ben Folds last night, and I am happy to add yet another cool person to the Order of People who Constantly Have to Push their Glasses Up on their Nose. *pushes her glasses up on her nose*
The show was fricken awesome, and it was a nice break. Plus, I got the lightboxes in for my show yesterday. Technically, I could dawdle about and work on my pieces here and there, because the show doesn’t go up until Tuesday, but my goal is to get everything completed today.
Plus, I still have to think of titles for my pieces! I’m a horrible title-thinker-upper. I had to force myself to come up with 2, because I talked about them in my artist’s statement which was due on Thursday. Someone think of titles for these two, maybe they will inspire me to think of titles for the other 11 pieces:
Sorry for the weepy interlude, things really aren’t that bad. I’ve put off ever single task I need to accomplish in order to work on finishing my show, and as such I’ve been at the studio most of the day, taking a short break now to rest my arms (by doing what? Typing! Good call, Lisa)
I keep hoping that if I work late enough, a mysterious elf-like creature will appear and offer to magically grind and polish all of my pieces in exchange for my first-born child.
(then of course I would trick him by adopting all my children! HAHAHAHA!)
No luck yet. Oh well, back to the grind. You’ll know where to find me..
A little over a week of classes left, and I am too swamped to appreciate the whole “I’m going to graduate” thought, or to take some time and say goodbye. I feel awful.
I have been a severe hermit this year, and it’s been pretty rough because of it. I miss you Centre kids, and I’m sad I won’t have any time to hang out before I leave forever.
Is anyone sticking around senior week?
Strother, your DDR stuff is still stashed over here, don’t forget it!
Is there a drama junior/senior dinner this year or what? I helped do dishes last year, dammit I want food for me as repayment, haha!
You guys are awesome, I’ll be more specific someday. Bad timing for me to get all sentimental and sad…well, back to the grind (literally)
Okay, so I have an idea to propose to those of you in LJ land.
This summer after I graduate I plan on doing a LOT of reading. I miss reading for leisure soooooooooo much, and I plan on making freqent library trips.
However, I generally get into these fixes where I really want to read, but can’t think of a book. Either that, or I’ll read a book that I think is awesome and will want to discuss it with someone, but no one will be readily available.
So, I was pondering the idea of starting a sort of “book club” ish message board. On it, people could recommend books, groups of people could decide on a book to read, and then discuss it in a thread when they finished. (and yes, I also want an excuse to use the message board I am provided with my hosting)
I don’t know if people would be interested in all, or if people *were* interested if it would get too big, seeing as it’s not focusing on a particular genre of books, just books in general.
Sooo, does anybody think that would be a good idea?
Holy Crap for Crap! The show was abso-frickin-lutely awesome! I was so impressed with everybody. D Flo fell into the Groucho role so well, and Ian as Chico was amazing, considering Chico is one of the brothers I often overlook. Strother, I know you were sad about being the normal one, but you were a fabulous Zeppo. Plus, I got to hug Colin in his Harpo costume, which was very gratifying. I was not disappointed in the slightest.
Everyone else, I am astounded at the awesomeness with which the dance numbers came together. I know you guys put a buttload of work and pain and sweat and tears and the occasional blood sacrifice into this, but it really paid off. I almost peed my pants on several occasions.
So, as the “Who’s your favorite Marx Brother” poll wraps up in my last post, it looks like Harpo is in the lead with 6, followed by Groucho with 3, Chico with 1, and Zeppo with a few “I also liked him”s
Thus as the prize, I will draw Wertle dressed up like Harpo, doing something….Harpo-ish. Don’t be dismayed if you don’t see it until after graduation though ^_^
So, for the past week or so, the amount of dreams I have had involving the Marx Brothers has been steadily increasing. I can only take that as an omen for the upcoming Centre production of The Cocoanuts which…well…one thing I know for sure is that the kids involved have been working HARD on it.
I like the Marx Brothers fine and well, though most of my knowledge of them…much like Apocalypse Now and Citizen Kane…has come from cartoons making parodies of them. I remember one episode of Tiny Toon Adventures where the students had to study comedians of the past, and so they did this Marx Brothers bit where I *think* Buster was Chico and Hampton was Zeppo. My memory is a little fuzzy on that one, but I know for sure that Babs was Groucho and Go-go Dodo was Harpo. Ah, Harpo, he’s always been my favorite Marx Brother, you know.
DON’T DISAPPOINT ME COLIN!!!! No pressure or anything.
So let’s have a contest. Who is YOUR favorite Marx Brother?
Reply with a comment here and tell me, and then I’ll tally up the votes and the winner…….well. I don’t really know yet. Maybe I’ll draw a picture of Wertle dressed up as them, or something silly like that.
Anyway, vote here, go see The Cocoanuts this week if you are on or near Centre’s campus, and have a lovely week.
while we’re on the subject..
