EDIT: Sorry about the formating, IE decided to eat my lj-cut, and I have to use Opera and HTML-mode to post. So far, I think I hate Opera. Need firefox if IE doesn't decide to work.
Oh my God. I just read what I had to say about the first time I saw Les Mis
in London, in February 2007. I refuse to believe I wrote that...my Lillestrøm
reviews, written a few weeks previously, are decent enough, but I'm
thoroughly horrified by the one from London. I wanted to sink through the
floor in embarrassment. If you happened to read that, I apologise for
sounding like a ten year old:( I would really like to delete and remove all
tracks of everything I wrote before turning 15, but that's rather hard to
actually do...I will try hard to forget, so please don't remind me of it.
( Finally )
Les Misérables 16 August 2008 Matinee and Evening performances review:
I think I might hate my English-teacher a little bit. She seems to delight in
jumping down upon people who make mistakes, though luckily I've not been
included so far. I "pleased her heart" when I answered a question in the
right tone to make me sound English, and she said "This is very good" when
reading what I wrote over my shoulder this Thursday. Laughing at students
doesn't seem very proper to me. Her roll-calls are shiny though; instead of
saying "yes"or "present", we have to give her the name of a fruit, a number,
an animal or the like, and she compliments those she thinks are clever. My
crush keeps saying these really obscure things, like "ash fruit", and she loves
him:) For some reason, she liked my "mango", but not my "meat pie".
We have a big drama-project in Norwegian this year: We are going to set up
Romeo and Juliet! Modernised version, of course, which is annoying, but still
shiny:) Everyone have to do something, so I've volunteered as a prompter. I
sort of want to audition for a part, since while I detest taking part in those
small, silly "sketches", I love real theatre, and have some experience from
school plays and "Annie" when I was little. But I've decided not to, since I
think my nerves will be a problem. Lately, I've started shaking when I'm
about to read something for the class, even though I'm perfectly aware of how safe it is to make mistakes.
