marching band and everything else that's been going on the past few days

Whew! I'm tired after just typing the title! I haven't posted since when? Monday afternoon? That's just sad :( So this is a post to catch up on the goings-on in my life.

MONDAY EVENING

Was our first marching band rehearsal! It was rather chilly and a bit misty, but we worked on out new music and were able to practice our new music and set a few drill spots which was good and fun. I had forgotten though how much it hurts your feet to march backwards!

TUESDAY AFTERNOON/EVENING

Guess what? Marching band! It was still cold, but at least it wasn't raining! After marching band got over at nine, I drove up to Olive Tree's for a sleepover with her and Elrania and our friend Serena. We watched Monty Python and the Quest for the Holy Grail (lolz) and had a lot of laughing fits. (Especially when I was coming back from the bathroom, stepped on a corner of one of the air mattresses, tripped, and flew through the air landing on top of Olive Tree and Serena. Oops.)

WEDNESDAY MORNING/AFTERNOON

In the morning we filmed our last Lord of the Rings spoof. We had so much fun! The funniest part was the scene where Frodo, Sam and Gollum are at Mt. Doom and Frodo (me) had to push Gollum (Elrania) off Mt Doom (a hill) to kill him. So Elrania and I were stage fighting and I made the move to push her down the hill and she rolls head over heels and totally cracks up. We just had to put that in slow motion in the movie. After I left Olive Tree's I had to go straight to my trumpet lesson and then we went to see my little cousins for about an hour and a half. By the way, it was raining quite a lot the whole time.

WEDNESDAY LATE AFTERNOON/EVENING

At 3:30 I headed off to the third day of boot camp. (marching band) It was raining so we stayed inside and did music practice until eight. By that time they said that it had stopped raining and misting, (It hadn't) and so we would go down and do some drill practice at the parking lot for about 50 minutes. It was pouring, I didn't have my raincoat, and I couldn't see anything because my glasses were covered with water. My section says I need windshield wipers for them. It was a long 50 minutes. One of the worst parts though was that all of these little frogs had come out to play in the lake that was the parking lot (Seriously. At some times I was ankle deep in water.) Unfortunately they were very small, they hid under the water and we weren't allowed to look down to watch where we were stepping, so there was a great amount of frog carnage by the end. Poor little frogs....

I now really, really, really, REALLY want to see your spoof! And I'm inspired to make a spoof of a movie, as well! :)
