    Current mood: tired
    Current music:"Everybody" by Evanescence

    Harison Retreat
    It's been a while since I've written in this thing. I need to get a real journal so I can actually keep up with it. Oh well, it'll happen eventually.

    On Thursday we got out of rehearsal early. We drove Katie home because she phoned home for a ride and no one was home.

    Friday we went up to Harrison. The drive was interesting. We got a call from Mr. Horning saying that there was an accident on the highway so we took some back road through the mountains. It was really foggy and kind of scary because we'd go around a corner and not be able to see the road lines, kind of like the night Lindsay crashed her car. We listened to "The Evil Spork" and to Vinyl Cafe stories on the way up.

    AJ didn't come until late on Friday because he was at a Jazz festival with band.

    I roomed with Step, Kristen and Tessa, but Tessa had dance so she didn't show up until like 1:00 and we didn't actually see her until the next morning. Max was with Aryn (sp?) and Nathan and AJ, Tyler and Zack were together.

    We went swimming Friday night and then I hung out in Max's room with Max, Aryn, Nathan, Lindsay, and I think AJ too, until like 12:30. We were supposed to be back in our rooms at midnight, but MEH. I was asleep by like 1:00.

    We had to get up at 7:00 on Saturday. Breakfast at 8:00.

    We rehearsed for a while, then we went out shopping. It started out with pretty much our group and Irene, then AJ and I stayed in a store to look around longer and we never did catch up with everyone else. I almost bought some insence, but then I decided to be cheap, since I still have some. We went to the Nature's Gifts and then we went to a corner store and AJ bought some snacks. It was odd. He bought Twinkies, but before he bought them he asked if I'd eat some if he bought them and I said yes, so he bought them, and he also bought Mars Bars and a giant Pixie Stick, which he gave to me. He also ended up giving me the second Mars bar. Very odd.

    Anyways, the guys had to start rehearsing half an hour earlier than we did, so I went up to my room and started reading the Bible because I was bored and wanted something to read because my paper and stuff was in the Fraser Room. Tessa came in, and it turns out that she's addicted to Queer as Folk and is reading a spin-off book. She owns the first three seasons on DVD and she said she'd lend them to me so Max and I can watch it. Score. It's practically all guys, (at least from what I remember from the one time I saw it) which kinda bites, but MEH. It was a pretty good show.

    We atually got through all of Carmena Burana.

    We had dinner at the Copper Room, the resteraunt in the hotel behind the pool. It was really good, and there was a really good band too. I didn't dance much, but Max and I got in a marangue. I spent most of the night sitting around with Aryn and AJ. Aryn wouldn't dance any slow songs because he has a girl frind and AJ just wouldn't dance for some reason.

    Part way through one of the dances someone came over and was like "OMG there's two girls out there GRINDING!...I think they're lesbians" and everyone jumped up to go watch and Tessa's like "I want to see the lesbians." lol. It was weird, but they were all saying that it was cool that they're so open about it, so that's good. It turns out that Tessa has a sister who's a lesbian.

    AJ and I went over to the bar because he'd asked for a coke and the waiter hadn't brought it over. Irene saw us there and asked us if we wanted her to buy us drinks. We said okay and she went off to get her ID. Anyways, that didn't happen because it turns out that you had to order drinks through your waiter and we didn't want her to get in trouble, but she said to tell her when and she'd get drinks for us and we'd have a party. I love Irene. I don't think it'll ever happen, but she's really cool.

    After dinner we went swimming again, then I went up to Max's room and hung out with him and Lindsay. Then we went down to the pool to see if AJ was there because I didn't know if he thought I was in the cangeroom and was waiting for me or something because we got out of the pool at the same time and I assumed he'd come up. When we got down there pretty much everyone else was in the hot tub singing for the other people there, so we sange Black Bird and then left.

    We pretty much just hung out and played cards for most of the night. We went into Katie's room for a while. Almost everyone else was there and they were all sitting around watching music videos. I've now seen the music video for "Hey Ya" *shudders* Anyways, someone's video came on, Beyonce or something...I can't remember, and Zack was like "She's so hot," which was hillarious, because he just sounds so incrdible gay. As Katie said "If he acts any gayer he'll explode." I beg to differ....I've met Chayse. lol. Anyways, Chelsea was going on about how hot she was and how if she was a lesbian it would be with her, and then she said "She gives me a boner." I don't think I want to know.

    Sunday morning we got up at 8:00 and had breakfast at 8:30. Then we rehearsed from I think 10:00 until some time after 11:00. I think we left the hotel at about noon and listened to Vinyl Cafe pretty much the whole way home.

    I got home around 1:30, and dad didn't realize I was home until about an hour later. I guess I should have told him when I got in. MEH.

    Anyways, overall the trip was okay. Everyone else had a great time, but I was in a mood where I just wanted to sit at home alone most of the time. I spent a hell of a lot of time with AJ, but I didn't talk to Max much. He asked me if I was mad at him for spending most of the time with Lindsay and Kristen. I'm not, but I don't get it. I know that he gets along with Lindsay pretty well most of the time, but he talks about how he doesn't really like either one of them, and I just don't get why he'd go out of his way to spend all his time with people he SAYS he doesn't like for a whole weekend. Oh well, if he can't make up his mind, or feels like he has to say he doesn't like them for whatever reason that's really not my problem.

    When I got home I worked on my Physics on and off all night. There were a couple questions that I totally bullshitted my way through, which kind of pissed me off because I knew how to do them last year, but whatever.

    Monday we actually got to school before the first bell. SCORE. Only a minute or two, but it's better than before.

    We were going to work on our Beowulf choral reaing thing after school, but that didn't end up happening. Suprise, suprise.

    I was in a pretty bad mood all day. I'm not entirely sure why. I think it was a combination of being tired and still being in a mood where I just wanted to be by myself.

    Rehearsal was different. I was still tired and in a shitty mood. I was going to take a nap after school, but I had to cook dinner so I couldn't. I guess I made it pretty obvious because Kirstin asked me if I was okay. I said I was, but I wanted to bitch about how I was in a shitty mood and rehearsing was just about the last thing I wanted to be doing, but what the hell was I supposed to say? Last time I said that I didn't want to be rehearsing it was pretty damn obvious that Linsay was really pissed off at me for it. I don't see why it matters though. Even if I didn't want to be rehearsing I still was and it's not like I was going to take off or anything.

    We got a decent ammount of work done, but Danica didn't come and Tyler was late and Hil left at 8:00. We just stopped rehearsing around 8:30. Step had two translations of Carmena Burana. One direct translation and one that's re-written to go with the music. I want a copy of each of them. Lindsay's so stupid sometimes. The one that goes with the music says something about Jack and Jill, but it's really sexual and she couldn't understand that those weren't the actual lyrics because they probably didn't have the whole Jack and Jill thing.

    Today was "Fashion Disaster Day." I don't usually do spirit week stuff, but I liked this day. Max, Katie, Kirstin and I all decided to wear our SCC sweaters. I don't know if Kirstin actually did because she told me she wore it but Carlene said she didn't. Lying bothers me. Anyways, I wore the stripped pants I got at China Town, my white shirt with the Peter Pan coller, the sweater and my runners with the music laces. I was going to wear my gahu band too, but I I was thinking that it might be a little to gay-pride-ish for my liking. Max wore his tetris shirt under the sweater, ripped up jeans with pj pants underneath and black dress shoes with white socks.

    I had a double block of Lit. Before lunch we did a paragraph thing, which I think I did relatively well on. Then at lunch we went over our Beowulf thing. Kate actaully stayed at school so we could rehearse. We stopped a little after noon. I think we scared her. Max was trying to give Autumn a piggy-back, but she wouldn't let him because she thought she'd hurt him. Then I gave him a piggy-back and then he gave me one and we were running around Mrs. Rodger's room and in the hall. It was fun. Sophie and I told Kate she'd have to stay at school again so we'll have the whole lunch hour to traumatize her, so she said she'd stay on Thursday. lol.

    Sophie is now in Psych. BLAH. Her and Autumn together bother me. They're constantly bickering. Plus - and I realize that this is petty and self centered, etc. etc - I had Autumn all to myself. I don't reall know her all that well, and I'd like to get to know her better, but with the me being quiet and her and Sophie already being really good friends and all I know I won't get to talk to her that much. I might get to know Kim better though, so I guess that's good.

    ARG. I'm talking to Lindsay right now. We've missed the deadline for Kiwanis entries, but we can still get in if we register soon. The problem is the categories. There's community chamber choirs, which is less than 18 people and is the category SC4 will be in and I really don't want to do that, but that only leaves us with "Musical Theatre or Light Opera Ensembles" which says "Selections from Modern and Broadway musicals, movies , Gilbert & Sullivan or any Operetta permitted. Up to eighteen performers. Costumes and choreography are encouraged." It doesn't really fit us, or Community Jazz Vocal Ensembles. ARG.

    Anyways, I'm tired and I want to be in bed earlier tonight so I'm going to bed.
