So, I finally got a job today! And then I found this picture and it makes me not want to have one.
I was always curious with the process of auditioning to become a Disney Princess. I went to an audition today (NOT the job I just got) and it was exactly what I thought. Some girls/guys had their crazy, over-protective mothers with them and some were wall-flowers not talking to anyone. But every one of them had a ton of wake-up on and couldn't stop fidgeting. I only went because I was curious, so to them I was "the girl that never get's nervous at auditions" but truthfully, I just really didn't care.
There was this one girl standing in line behind me that was the highlight of the experience. 15-years-old (had to be 16 or older to audition) Mexican, shorter than 5 feet. She was obnoxious. She cursed more than my army friends and I wouldn't be surprised to see her smoking outside. My favorite conversation:
"What character are you going for?"
"Yeah... ya know.. character. A princess, a fairy..."
"Oh! Hell naw... I ain't gonna be no fairy. Hell naw...."
While waiting, they continued to play some sort of Radio Disney station that made me want to poke myself in the eye with one of the mascara wands that all of the 122 girls around me were using. Gross. They line you up like cattle, take your height and direct you to a different waiting room. Then, they call you in 40 at a time and line you up. They then proceed to walk up and down the rows looking at every feature of your appearance.
A few classic Disney songs later (in my instance A Whole New World, Circle of Life, and Tale As Old As Time) they call out a few numbers to stay and the rest of us leave. IMMEDIATELY some girls started crying. Hardcore, crying. Walking out, most all were on the phone talking to whoever putting the blame on Disney because of their unattractiveness.
Needless to say, it was an experience.
"I wanted to get out and walk eastward toward the park, through the soft twilight, but each time I tried to go I became entangled in some wild, strident argument which pulled me back, as if with ropes, into my chair. Yet high over the city our line of yellow windows must have contributed their share of human secrecy to the causal watcher in the darkening streets... I saw him too, looking up and wondering. I was within and without."
-F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby, Chapter 2
This passage makes me want to read the whole book over again. When was the last time you read this book?
The roommate and I have started, yet again, watching the entire series of FRIENDS. Just makes me so happy : )
Who is your favorite character? I think Rachel is mine... No, wait, Chandler. But Monica is adorable as well. Ross is so lovable... Joey is so... Joey and Phoebe is so Phoebe. Man, this is a tough decision.
Hello everyone! Hope today is going great so far. Here's some things I came across during my morning "catch-up" time. Enjoy!
(From Leah at THXTHXTHX):
We all went to see The Green Hornet the other night. Thought you might enjoy Ben's Review.
"A high profile cameo in the early minutes of the movie adds to the humor of the villainous portrayals. He comments about the furniture in his lair ("I've got sh*tloads of glass everywhere...I have a see-through piano!") and seems totally aware of both the ridiculousness of his surroundings and the expectations of how a movie villain is supposed to dress and behave. This is easily one of the most entertaining scenes in the film."
That was my favorite part too. HILARIOUS.
Hope y'all have a great day!
So, thanks to CUP OF JO, I now have to look at this site everyday. He is absolutely ADORABLE!
IT JUST SNOWED: Walk in my footprints.
THE DRIVE: I'll get the car, you can stay in the restaurant. Unless of course we live in the city and then we'll just walk.
IT'S YOURS: Two lives, yours is yours and mine is mine. Just living them together.
How about four more?
BUT WE CAN: Watch Back To The Future all the time.
I KEEP: A bag of Peanut Butter Cups in my desk drawer. If you take one, please replace.
I LOVE WHEN: You do that little thing you do that makes me all weak in the knees.
THE RING: I will not be going to Jared, you're welcome.
I don't think a huge MARRY ME! message would convince him enough.
Yes, the taff is just wonderful. And a piece of cake? See what they did there? Speaking of IKEA cake.....
Someone go to IKEA and try the Princess Cake. Tell me that it doesn't taste like a huge booger.
Nicole came over to help us out. We needed it.
So, like any other sane person should do... we resulted to drinking wine and margaritas to help ease the frustration of unclear and non-verbal instruction manuals.
Needless to say, we are going to think twice about eating lunch at IKEA.
