Today I went to see The Lion King in 3D with harpisan. Damn, I love that movie so much. I was actually pleasantly surprised with the 3D stuff, we went in spite of it not for it. Which gives us hope that the 3D version of Finding Nemo that is being released next year will also be awesome.
Despite having seen the movie many, many times, I still manage to forget how fricking adorable baby Simba is. Also noticed lines that I never have - the pun on 'lion around' made us lose it. How have I never noticed that one?!
Oh, and Scar is the sassiest, most sarcastic villain ever and I have never appreciated that as much as I did today. Heh.
Then, it was a mad run back to my teacher's house to get forms signed (oh yeah my day started off by me realising I'd misread times and so everything was pushed an hour and a half later oops), and then home to try and accomplish far too much in the space of 3 hours. I got most of what I needed to done, I just ran out of time to practice. Oops.
That reminds me I still need to sing through my pieces to time them.
Then, it was onto the last dress rehearsal for the production of Bye Bye Birdie I'm playing for at the moment. It hit me last night, during the run, that this musical is quite literally about fangirls. Set in the 50s. Some things really don't change and it amuses me far more than it probably should. The music is so much fun to play. SO MUCH FUN. And most is not too difficult, except for the bows (which I basically rewrote a part because I physically could not play it at tempo, and my brain was refusing to process reading every second note). Also the band people are awesome. One reminds me so much of a friend from uni, it's ridiculous.
And now it's nearly 11:30, and I wish I could just crash in bed but alas I still have things I need to do. Bugger.
