All I Can Think About Lately

1) Please watch this trailer for what I am hoping will be a super amazing movie. I read the graphic novel it was based on a few months ago, and it absolutely blew my mind.



Why is this on my mind? The only line in that trailer says something to the effect of, "The world will look up and shout 'save us,' and I'll whisper 'no'." However, the actor pronounces the word I'll like most people pronounce the word all. Saying it like that is very regional in its diction, and it drives me crazy every single time I hear it. I can't stand it. So, every time the commercial, for something about which I am very excited, comes on, I enjoy most of it, but I then have to grit my teeth. I am just really surprised that the movie folk allowed it to be recorded that way. LEARN HOW TO SPEAKY GOOD! THAT'S RIGHT, SPEAKY!

2) When my mind wanders lately, I have been imagining what it would be like to be in a bad car accident. Particularly, how it would make my bones rattle in my body. I am hopeful that this will not occur, don't get me wrong, and I am not looking for opportunities to get into a bad car accident (*knocks on wood*), but I keep having this recurring daydream about this. It's kind of freaking me out.

3) I am going to be in a production of "The Cradle Will Rock" with Stone Soup Theatre Company here in San Diego, and it is going to be amazing. We just had our first rehearsal tonight, and I already know how awesome it's going to be.*

*In college, I once claimed to a professor that I thought it would be awesome to get a velvet tuxedo for my senior recital, to which this person replied "Only God is awesome, not some velvet suit." I later got a "C" grade on that recital, so I've done my very best to disregard anything associated (comments included) with it.

Your train of thought is hilarious! I hope you don't find yourself in a bad accident, but I do hope that, sometime in your life, you find an occasion to wear the awesome velvet suit:)

Oh, and when does your play start? I'd love to see it!

It starts the first week of April and pretty much runs all month. I'll probably post some more info about tickets as it gets closer (but it may be less expensive to just pay at the door as tickets are $25 if you buy before the show but it is "pay what you can" at the door).
