OMG...where to begin?? in the words of Ron Weasley: BLOODY BRILLIANT! ugh, i want to go see it again! i had such a great experience. my grandpa bought me a program. (they're worth $10 people, be sure to bring money) If you didn't know, the Fox has a ceiling that has stars set into it, it was very pretty. i'm now in love with Gary Mauer, who was the Phantom. hehe (too bad he's married to the alternate Christine.) he's SO GOODLOOKING in real life. He's got such a lovely voice. The last two lines that he sings at the end were PERFECT! SPOT ON. Marie Danvers, who was Christine that night, has a nice voice, though i prefer Emmy Rossum's voice. There were bright flashes, loud bangs, great music. They had the chandelier of course, it was right over my head. There was a big flash when it started to rise and a big flash when it "crashed." Some of the lyrics to "Think of Me" were different from what i know, but i got the gist. The boat scene was awesome too. When they got to the instrumental break during "Music of the Night" and the "dummy" that was wearing the wedding dress in the alcove and she leans forward, you could see she was trying really hard to hold her position. she was shaking while Gary was finishing the song. there's this big prop with these gold statue things grouped together at the top of the stage that came down some when Christine and Raoul went to the rooftop. it's hard to explain, i have a picture of it. anyway, when they were done singing "All I Ask of You", it came down even more, and it turns out the Phantom was on top/inside the statue the whole time and eavesdropping on them. So he was just hanging there on the statue and i was saying to myself, "oh geez, PLEASE don't fall." lol there were a couple of scenes that were different from the movie, some being in different order and some that weren't in the movie at all. It wasn't hard to follow at all, however. I spent the whole time wishing i was playing Christine. lol i'll be daydreaming about this for a month. if you try to get my attention, and i don't respond, i'll most likely be thinking about this.



when they took their final bows, Michael Shawn Lewis, who was Raoul, had his shirt half undone, so you could see his chest. i was like "ARGH! NOT FAIR!" i cheered the loudest for Gary when he came for his final bow. he talked a little about the Katrina situation, and asked if we would please put some money into the baskets at the exits. (i must say, his speaking voice is as lovely as his singing voice. lol) The guy who played Firmin, David Cryer i believe his name is, was holding the basket i put money in. I told him it was a great show, and he thanked me. i hope i get to see this again, though i doubt i'll get great seats a second time.

well, school wasn't too bad. i got a couple of compliments on my outfit. (pink cami, cropped menswear pants, a dark green shrug, and my metallic blues shoes with the kitten heels) i get my two academics out of the way first thing in the morning. my world history class has only 13 people in it. lol (we're the gifted ones, so we've known each other for years.) i'm gonna loathe algebra, though my teacher's nice. check out what i learned in Spanish:

A, E, I, O, U
El burro sabe
mas que tu
(The donkey knows more than you.) lmao

my chorus class is fine, though the teacher from last year moved back to Nashville, and now we have a 50-something year old woman teaching us. (i want Ms. Chaffin back!) the class is smaller and more well behaved. it's only sophomores, juniors, and seniors allowed in the advanced chorus class.

our bus is absolutely craptastic. lol

oh, and some GOF news...IT'S GETTING A PG-13 RATING!!!!!!!! WOOT WOOT!

Innocent Beauty
A:

Your Beauty lies
in Innocence. Pure, sweet and child-like. You most
likely look far younger than
you are and your smile would brighten up anyone's
day. Seen as naive and
sheltered, you can be ignorant at times, but for
the most part, it's simply your
reputation preceding you. You are most likely
rather aware of the realities of
life. You are extremely good natured and
trustworthy. By the same token, you are
a bit too trusting. Be careful, few are as honest
and open as you. You might
seem girlish still with a love of dresses, ponies,
and things most might deem
you "too old for". But this doesn't
bother you. You enjoy your youth and are
going to make it last. After all you are only as
old as you feel.



Some Things
That Represent You:



Element:
Light, Wind Animal: Kitten Color:
White, Pink, Pastels Song:
Beautiful Soul by Jesse McCartney
Expression: Innocent Smile



Gemstone:
Diamond Mythological Creature: Unicorn
Planet:
Moon Hair Color: White Eye Color:
Silver



Quote: "A
stranger is just a friend you haven't met
yet."

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME! i had a nice day today. i had a friend sleep over, and we watched a few movies: The Day After Tomorrow, Signs, and The Village. we've never seen TDAT, but i've seen both Signs and The Village, so i wanted to see her reaction to those. she liked them, hooray! today i took her to see Phantom of the Opera, which she liked as well. plus, i got to see my gorgeous Gerry again. *sighs happily* the good thing about seeing a movie twice is that you notice things that you didn't before. (did anyone else notice that it looked like Christine mouthed "i love you" to Raoul before she started singing "pitiful creature of darkness?" ugh, that sucked! that ruined tthe whole thing!) for some reason the sound was blaring, my eardrums nearly collapsed. lol

i got these awesome metallic blue Steve Madden shoes, The Village, i will be getting Hermione's Time-Turner in a few days, i got the Special Edition POTO soundtrack, etc...a good haul compared to last year. lol

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALAN RICKMAN! can you believe he's 59? next year, he'll be 60! :0

NEWBIE ALERT! [31 Dec 2004|06:03pm]
[ mood | drained ]

Hello everyone who is pathetic enough to read my journal! lol I'm new here, and the layout looks crappy, I know, but hopefully, i'll get all that straightened out soon enough.

I got back about an hour ago from Florida with my family. (8 hour drive...blegh!) We spent a few days at my grandparents where we met up with some more relatives who were also staying. We only see them once or twice a year, so I was excited to see them.

In about 20 minutes, I'll be going to ANOTHER relative's house, which is, thank the Lord, only 5 minutes away. lol We'll help ring in the new year over there.

Merry Belated Christmas and Happy New Year to all! Maybe I'll tell you what I got this year...

~Gretchen
