once more with /FEELING/

Well, hello! Life in Kylieland has ben very busy as of late, as rehearsal for the show I am in just started. We are doing Metamorphoses, an adaptation by Mary Zimmerman. I'd been very excited to do this show, and we're putting it all together in less than two months! I am totally scared, but psyched at the same time! I am playing the 1st laundress, Oread, and Pomona! My favorite of them all is Pomona, and I've seen my costume sketches and they're gorgeous!

I've continued in my Buffy-watching, and I've just finished the 6th season. Tomorrow my friend Lydia is bringing me her copy of the 7th season! So far, I have LOVED the musical episode, Once More With Feeling, and I am listening to the music as we speak!

Let's see, what else?  . . . I had a voice lesson a few hours ago, and things are going really good! I think that I've improved a lot since I started going! I just finished Sixteen Going on Seventeen from The Sound of Music and am moving on to Many A New Day from Oklahoma!.

Tomorrow I am going to see a show at the Yale Repertory Theatre and I am very excited!! It's a comedia  del arte show, which means the performers all wear these amazing masks! I was a part of one, A Doctor in Spite of Himself by Moliere, so it's gonna be great to see it from another perspective!


i will walk through the fire
cause where else can i turn?
i will walk through the fire

fe fi fo fum!

Life hasn't been that interesting lately. I dunno why, but things have been pretty bland. I've basically gone to school, ate, and been watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. I just finished the 5th season of Buffy on Friday, and I'm about to finish season one of Angel. One of my friends got me way into it, and my english teacher has a thing for it too. It really is a great nerdy show!

Today I hung out with some friends who spent the night last night, and went to the mall with one of them and my mom! I didn't get much, just a green plaid button down from American Eagle and Aqua Eyes black eyeliner by Makeup for Ever at Sephora. It wasn't a really successful trip, but I ended it by getting . . . cupcakes! I got to take advantage of the four for seven-twenty five deal! So, I also tried the vanilla bean ones, and they were excellent! Still waiting for the new flavors to come in though . . .

Tomorrow my family is going out for my Gram's birthday to this indian restaurant, and I really hope it's one of the places where you get to sit on the ground! I've always wanted to do that!

Man, I really don't have much to talk about!

red velvet

I am a bad blogger! I used to want to post multiple times a day, and I would freak if I forgot a day! Maybe if I got some comments I would write more . . . (*hint* *hint*).

So, I am pretty happy right now. Why? I was at the mall today with some friends, and before we left, we stopped at the Starbucks in the mall. We all got frappucinos,  but I, knowing I was coming home to an empty house, decided to pick up something special . . .


Yeah, not as exciting as it could be, but I lovelovelove red velvet cupcakes. Plus they put it in this adorable little box made especially for cupcakes! There's a little circular hole in the bottom where it sits and looks so cute! It wasn't too expensive as far as red velvets go, it was 2.25. But, for only around 7 dollars you could get four! So, with this inspiration, I have developed a few starbucks happiness combo meal things! I hope that you enjoy them!
