Good Day

Dear Bloggie,
       I checked my email today and guess what I saw? A email from one of the blogs I follow, The Tree House Gang. It turns out I won their book give away. I won signed copies of Michelle Zink's books Prophecy of the Sisters and Guardian of the Gate. They're the first two in her trilogy. I've had these books on my wish list for about a year, but sadly they had been grouped into my list of books that I want, but never seem to actully get around to buying them. You know, those books that you forget about when your at the book store and creating birthday/Christmas lists, but then you hear something about them and you can't help but think to yourself "Darn it, I should have bought/asked for those books."

    From what I've read about them, they remind me of one of my favorite trilogy of all time: The Gemma Doyle Trilogy by Libba Bray. They consist of A Great and Terrible Beauty, Rebel Angels, and The Sweet Far Thing. Some of the best books I have ever read. A true Victorian gothic. Words can not explain how much I love these books. You must all go and buy them. NOW!!!

    I'm teching for a production at my school (A Servant of Two Masters) so this week I'm at school until 8pm. That's from 7:45 am (when I start school, though I get there around 7:30am) until 8pm. Next week -- and most definitely the week after -- I'm staying later. Like 9, 10 and maybe even 11pm later. I started today, only to find out that my Stage Manager, Janie, has been at this for about a month and so has everybody else. Still, I'm the only person besides her (Janie is a freshmen too, she became Stage Manager after the original one became sick and missed too many rehearsals to catch up) who returned their Technician Contracts, making me assistance Stage Manger. Besides the fact that I'm not easing in, but instead jumping in at full force with only three weeks until the show, I may also be the only techy back stage! Janie will be in the above lighting booth during the show, and if no one else returns their forms I will basically have to do it by myself with my only help from Janie coming from a head set. Oh, and have I mentioned that I still have no idea in hell what the play is about (I read the Wikipedia page, but ours in sorta of an adaptation so what I witnessed today was different from what Wikipedia says)?! No pressure of course.

    Now, good news (have to do a good news, bad/good news, good news pattern here): It's March! Thirteen days until my birthday. Fifteenth birthday, here I come. As I said in another post, the only reason I want my fifteenth birthday to come is so my sixteenth will come faster, but whatever. Thankfully, if the schedule stays the same, I should have March thirteenth off. I have to tech the eleventh, twelfth, and fourteenth and so on, but at least my birthday is my off day. Yippee!

     Oh, and one more thing:
