10:32 am - The Vagina Monologues

Well, everyone else posted about it so I guess I will too. The play was terrific, as far as I'm concerned, the actresses were great, the monologues were powerful when they wanted to be, hilarious when they wanted to be.
Dru and I went Friday night, with Elizabeth, and then again Saturday night with Julie, Christina, Stephanie, and Claire, none of whom seemed entirely impressed with it. Dru recorded it (Can you send me a wav. file of it by any chance? If it's much trouble don't worry about it, babie, thank you. :)). Anyway. So Julie had already read the Vagina Monologues, and was already unimpressed with the quality of writing. I beg to differ. Reading the plays in book form for one, I can understand how they might be a bit dry. It's not the same at all. On the other hand, I know the difference between good writing, mediocre writing, and bad writing. This was pretty good. And the actresses, though there were a few glitches, overall did quite well. Sharon, the delicious one, and Elspeth, and the moaner, were the most memorable performers, though they were all good.
There was a more jovial crowd, and a more outspoken one the second night. Hence the massive changes in the rant and rave session afterwards. A large argument ensued about the director's choice to include a two minute blurb at the end, written and performed by a man. Some of the women in the audience had a problem with that, said they felt that after the Monologues wasn't the place for that, that it felt like a validation, and that it shouldn't have been included. Of course, I disagree, as I am not one of the man-hating, kill-our-kids, want-no-part-of-a-man-in-my-life, women-are-better-than-men-and-here's-120-reasons-why feminists, but rather the based-on-logic-and-reason, women-should-be-equal-not-above, and segregation-doesn't-equal-equalization kind of feminist. They had the cast leave the stage first, recieve their applause, etc., before leaving the stage. Anyway. That's really enough about that topic, everyone knows where I stand and why.
So it was good times anyway, and I'm glad to have seen it. The point of the plays is to educate women about the kind of lives some others lead, to empower them, to give them a sense of fearlessness. This is how I see it anyway. The addition of that final monologue did not take away from that, by any means. The play on the whole made me wish I were more involved in the issues I'm concerned about. Maybe it will have been sufficient motivation to get me so involved.

current mood: yeah

1:28 pm - this is so funny you guys

i'll start with the obvious. im toog ay for words. last nighti was openign a chef boyardee can of ravili with one of those no edge can openers, and guess what it left an edge. and not only that but it didnt open it all the way. being the rational person i am i decided tog rab the lid with my hand and pul it off. haha, soon my hand was as red as the spaghetti sauce as i screamed with hideous agony. I vcould have been wquiet about ti, but i went all otu screaming "fuck all of you bastatrds, i hate all of you" while runnign to the bathroom, where i proceeded to act like queen elizabeth while the rest of the family fawned on me. then they decided ot get me to the emergency room. i must say that hwile my mother and borther tried ot help me, all my dad could do was walk intot he kitchen and start yelling about the mess i made. Then i was taken to the er. IN the midst of all the people wiht broken limbs, overdoses and bad sicknesses was i, the one wiht a small cut. so to make a logn story short, i ahd nine sittches put into my palm and finger. I didnt even cry or anything,b ut they sitll didnt give me a lollipop!!! its okay htough the scar im gettign will eb a destiny line somehting i didnt have on my right hand before.

argh. argh argh.
methinks im losing joey.

he's beeing drawn in to this whole religion thing which he had successfully backed out of again (he's pentecostal). and now he's "confused" and he went to a revival all last week and i think now considering what he said in his last e-mail that i'm losing him.

Andy just give me a few more days, Im just confused about some things, It's hard to explain, Ill explain it all later in the week, Im coming to the conclusion of something, I just need some time alone to think, and let my heart teach me some things.

subconsciously i've been preparing myself for this but why, i don't know. i don't want to lose him but it's hard to face.

maybe i'm over-reacting and i'm not gonna lose him, and i'm just stupid.

thursday. moulin rouge @ liz's? is this an ok (hat the idea?) cuz she said it would be fine. apparently shes not working.

no drivers ed pickup for me next week but the week after yes.

i found someone to sell the rufus tickets to, i figure since i couldn't get a straight answer out of julie and i don't know why i bought the tickets in the first place, i figure get my money back. yes. and besides, my dad was huffing and stuff and he was giving me a hard time about going. yesh.
