uggg...so not ready for it to be Monday....I don't think I' can do this too much longer. It just never ends....you know, all is stress and ickness and heaven only knows what.
Oh....don't mind me, I think I'm just feeling 'stretched thin, like butter spread over too much bread' haha. I'm in a grim mood because a toilet blew up (at least the pipes did) in our Fine Arts Building tonight and sent gallons of water flooding down into the theater space. We got it stopped and the maintained guys are going to fix it tomorrow so it's ok, it's just the principle of the thing.
On the bright side, my parents came up today and brought me my new purple coat and some yummy soup and some other fun stuff. It was nice to see them. And really it has been a good weekend over all, we had a 6 hour dance rehearsal for the spring musical Lucky Stiff on Sat and that was great fun, lots of work, but great fun.
****Tiny Return of the King Spoilers, just FYI****
I went and saw Return of the King again last weekend with Ruth and her brother Micah and his wife Amy. We had a really good time, we saw the movie and then went to dinner and talked about it. Then we went to Micah and Amy's house and had cake and watch the new Veggie Tale's movie. fun stuff. I like RotK more every time I see it. This time I was just really struck by the beauty of Sam and Frodo's friendship. This is not a new thing to me, I've been in love with the aspect of the plot for many years, but I think that P.J. Elijah Wood and Sean Astin do an astounding job, the moment that really seals it for me is the final scene at the Gray Havens where Frodo kisses Sam on the forehead, my goodness, it is so beautiful. wow! :) I am also struck by how far above the others Frodo is, even as he says goodbye to his cousins and his best friend he sees already to be moving away from them. It's not like he no longer cares, he feels the parting deeply, but he knows that he has no other path to choose, he knows he will never full be hole in the Shire again, he must follow his path through to its conclusion. He is about to pass through that gray rain curtain.....and Elijah Wood plays it so well....oh my.... :)
Well, I should away, I need to read The Cherry Orchid for class tomorrow....
