I have to congratulate Linda and Zack on their recent engagement! I'm very happy for them, and I wish the best for their relationship and their future. For the lack of better words...yay!

Last night, I had a very messed up dream. I was in Coconuts, and it was much larger than it really is. I was looking around for "Amnesiac" by Radiohead (what a surprise) and it wasn't there. Gosh dern it! Then Brittany and I decided to skip around the store and see what people would say. I saw a few people I knew in there too, but no one really said anything. Then something really weird happened. If you did something bad or evil or something like that, a green light would come up from the ground, and a witch would try to hunt you down. I did something (I don't know what) and it happened, and I ran all around the store, but no one ever actually SAW the witch. Then I was one of the last people in the store, and the whole witch craze was over. Apparently, I took off my boots, and they were laying on the ground. A guy that worked at the store asked me if both pairs of boots on the floor were mine...the other pair wasn't there before, and it clicked. The other pair of boots were the witch's, so I high-tailed it out of there, carrying my boots with me. After that I just ran around outside like a nut, trying to escape "the witch." Hmmm...maybe there's something symbolic attached to this?...I doubt it.

Yesterday was an...interesting day. It's a little known fact that in 1993 and 1994, I was in 3 operas with my grandmom when she was a part of the Boheme Opera Company. You're probably thinking, "Hold on...Jacquie? In an opera? You must be kidding!" But, I kid you not. In 1993, I was in Faust, and in 1994 I was Cavaleria Rusticana and I Pagliacci. So yesterday, I took a (rather long) trip down memory lane and watched the tapes of these. I still haven't finished watching all of them, but I did manage to watch all of the 1999 Nutcracker tape. Oh my, all of these tapes were very interesting. When I was onstage in the operas, I looked very lost, which goes to show you that I really haven't changed much! There was one scene in Faust where we all had to dance around, and I looked like a little clumsy elf child who belonged in...the Nutcracker as opposed to an opera. Watching younger Jacquie on tape was interesting, and I also looked at Volume one of the four book series "Jacquie's Life in Photos" by Aunt Viv. Last night, I went to see Harry Potter again, but this time with Frank. We went to the 9:35 show, so it was after 12 when it was over. Hah Jen, I saw Ron Weasley again and he told me that he doesn't like you. Mwahahahaha. Frank's mom went to the wrong theater to pick us up, so we waited outside for a long time until she came. Yesterday was fun, and I procrastinated with homework. So now, I'm screwed, and I have to do it now. I can already tell that today is going to be fun diddly un. Also, Sean's in NY until Sunday, so I'm kind of bored and lonely. Come back Sean!

Happy turkey day, y'all! I'm not southern or ghetto, so I really can't pull that phrase off. I ate so much today, I hope it doesn't go to waste. That's right, I want to GAIN weight. I pretty much fasted the whole day (unless you want to count the two chocolate chip cookies I ate) so I could eat a lot at dinner. In case you're interested (which you most definetly are not), here's what I ate for my Thanksgiving dinner:
1 turkey leg (I like my meat dark!)
One of those Pillsbury layered biscuits (mmmmm)
Jellied Cranberries that come in a can (once again mmmmm)
"Purple stuff" which is blueberries and pineapple in black cherry Jello with a mixture of sour cream, cream cheese, sugar and vanilla (interesting, I know)
1 slice of pumpkin pie
1 slice of lemon crumb pie (from the chorus pie sale, of course)
Go Jacquie go! I ate like a crazy mofo! Why don't I eat more? My brother said, "I hate Thanksgiving!" and I said, "Why? That meal was the best 15 minutes of my life!" My dad was talking to Diane about her eyes being bigger than her stomach, and he said, "Are you trying to preserve your girlish figure?" and I said,"Perserving it? I'm ready to destroy it!" You can see I wasn't at all bashful at the dinner table tonight, my stomach controlled my brain and turned it on "Vacuum mode."
Who's the idiot? Me. I was trying to download "2,000 Miles" by the Pretenders, and ended up with "(I Will Walk) 500 miles" by the Proclaimers. The song was misnamed, so it was weird when I played the song and heard two Scottish brothers singing. Hey, I like the song, I think it's a keeper. Now I'll download the RIGHT song!

Tomorrow is the opening night for Aladdin, and my mom's got a hot date for it...my 6-year-old cousin Jake. I'm totally set, I got my eggs intact, and I'm going to blow the roof of the house. Woowee. Today was a not-so-good day for Jacquie. I was really tired, the hallway smelled of vomit, and I totally bombed the Great Depression/New Deal test. And I um, got my, yes. Just in time for the play, what a wonderful coincidence. Sorry I had to share that with you. At least I've got Sean, that's always a plus.

Wow, the past few days have been crazy. Well, first of all that last entry (smile) and second of all, my mom and Brian have broken up! I don't know what to say, I feel bad that I was kind of...bitchy around him. I had a major attitude problem just because he was a biker hick from the middle of nowhere...yeah. Last night at 2 AM, and earlier tonight, my mom called him (and did quite a bit of yelling) I think he cheated on her, but from what I recall, she did the same to him, and with him to my dad. It's a vicious cycle, but I really can't do anything about it. Whatever. She mentioned something about meeting this guy who "wants to take (her) away", and also said something about her children being in the other room. I'm quite a evesdropper, but she won't tell me anything, so I felt the need to do it just this one time. I don't know half the shiz my mom does, and I found it funny when she said the ever-so-popular phrase, "I'm trying to be an adult here!" What a hypocrite. Oh well, I don't know what will happen next, but all I know is that my mom is never going to settle down. I want normal parents that embarrass me in normal ways!!!

My heart rate is up. I'm smiling every second. The sparkle in my eyes has made a glorious comeback. I feel alive! I just had the best 4 hour conversation in the world! The gap in my life is starting to get filled and it's all because of someone. Someone who I have so much in common with...someone who I've met only recently...someone who I'm not going to name, because it's more fun that way :) I feel so happy I could explode now, but I have to do my homework first. Go figure.

Ebert and Baker give Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets two thumbs up, and Ron Weasley's facial expressions four thumbs up, because they were hilarious! (So were Jen's spasms)

Two days ago in English class, we were talking about how Puritains and our world today exaggerate or make a big deal out of crimes people commit. The Brook whispered: "Winona Rider!" Then a whole thing sprung off of that...
Mr. Kane: "Winona Rider, huh! Juicy, isn't it?"
Mr. Kane: "Do you think you'd be on Entertainment Tonight if you shoplifted?"
Brook: "If I shoplifted...naked!"
We all broke out in laughter, and it was jolly good fun. English class is surprisingly entertaining most of the time. Too bad I failed the stupid Scarlet Letter test yesterday, great, starting the marking period off with a horrible grade. Way to go, Jacq-ass! Oh yeah, and Courtney's new name is Whore-tney. I just wanted to make that public...mwahahahaha.
Today's class elections were a joke. The only competition was the vice-presidency, which in the end was too close to call, so now it's a co-vice-presidency. I demand a recount!
I get to miss class on Friday because I get to go around and make a fool of myself in front of children of different local elementary schools because I'm in Aladdin and life is unfair and I don't like punctuation but I do like-run on sentences like this one wow that was fun to write

"WALT WHITMAN! Leaves Of Grass my ass!" - Homer Simpson
Oh man, I died when I heard that one yesterday on The Simpsons. I thought back to 8th grade when Mr. Harrington made us read it and write what we thought it was about. Pretty much everyone thought it was about sex (including me), except Bridget, I think. I miss big H, he was a great guy.
Usually I can't fall asleep, but I some how managed to do so when I was reading The Scarlet Letter. Surprise, surprise...

Play practice today was hilarious! Sean said about 100 (million) embarrassing things, including how he accidentally said "flat" and made a sweeping hand motion by my "pebbles" and I cracked up. He also missed my hand and touched my hip, (he thought he went lower) and said a lot of other things before thinking them through. He had a very "Jacquie" practice, if I do say so myself. Poor Sean, he has to get his wisdom teeth pulled out and will be out the rest of this week. Tomorrow's a half day, YAY!

My mom had to go to the emergency ward last night. Weird, I know. And what do you suppose it was for? Her foot swelled, and they diagnosed her condition as cellulitis of the foot, which she thinks she got from a bug bite. It was pretty comical and that is the best excuse for missing two days of work. "Um, sorry, I can't come in because my foot is going to explode, sorry!" Malcolm In The Middle last night was HILARIOUS, and I have a feeling I'm going to end up watching it routinely as I've done in the past. I miss it. Speaking of missing, I missed called Frank last night by accident, so I have to call him now. That was a waste of time for anyone who read this, oh well, have a nice day and avoid cellulitis!

Jen's song (plus revisions from the ever-so-picky Jacquie)
What can I say
about all the people that are gay
When I see them walking down the street
moving to there whorish beat
It bring out the anti-gay fairy in meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
I JUST WAN-NA
turn them straight
make them not be so gay
Cause its not what's meant to be
and it really bothers me
because as you can see
I'm the anti-gay fairy
Jen is not against gays, it's an inside joke, and the song is beautiful.

I had a very uneventful Halloween this year. I stayed home, watched TV, ate my brothers' candy, and played freecell...a lot. Maybe next year something exciting will happen...I highly doubt that.
Last night, however, I had a lot of fun. I went to Frank's house, and his friend Dan and I were poking fun at him a lot. (Which is always fun, because usually I'm the one being made fun of. I don't mind it.) Then we went and saw the Santa Clause 2 at 9:30 because that is the most thugginest thing to do in Jizzamison. Word. So yeah, we had a lot of fun, and I gave multiple hugs (plus the ever popular running hug) at the end. I like hugs. Hugs are nice.
