So a lot's happened, and I don't feel like writing it all here. Fiddler's going well, sort's crunch time now...and my costume needs utter revamping. My infection is gone and all is well (can I get a hallelujah?) and the kid's show is behind us, so we're down to 2 commitments. Woo hoo! but it was a great weekend, and I'm just posting to let you know there some pics up of everything. Not as many as I'd like since a couple on my phone didn't save and I was doing lights during the actual show...but anyway.

Here ya go...

More later. Sorry for the slacking.

Just another fun little update. I do have an infection and am going to the hospital. *sigh* We're hoping it will be something we can deal with at home since I utterly DO NOT have time for this and would much prefer to have a summer. But life comes as it will I have learned. And all we can do is Defy Gravity. So love to all and I'll update as I can....


ps- Broadway Rocks, truly rocks, and I get to sing in a Godspell song...and tons more. and you ALL better come see it.

So...once again, as Mallory is having a good streak....

I'm seriously getting a wee bit sick of being me. Not 'I hate my life, etc.' because truly I do not. But I get sick of random stuff happening just when I get ahead in life healthwise, so grr...

The past couple of nights, exactly an hour after I get hooked up I've been overcome with the worst chills ever that make my muscles so tense I can hardly move, and I just have to get in bed and shiver with 6 blankets til it goes away. good times. It's bizarre because usually that is a sign of infection and my fever spikes, and/or I'll have rapid heart rate etc, like I did with endocarditis, but there's nothing else. no fever or anything

Last night was the second time in a row it happened. And my mom called the pharmacy and the medical supply company and stuff, and I might go for bloodwork today and stuff so if there is something brewing we can head it off at the pass. Not cool. I do NOT have time for this shiznit. I love being the only person in the world who can get infections from existing. Agh.

On the upside....we have our first Broadway Rocks rehearsal tonight, and I'm psyched!!!! squeeeeeeee

ok...more soon I promise.

you know you love me.

Just a little update. Not too much going on. Today Colin and I did a fun lunch then did the Bates thing that I love so much! *smile* It was really nice. We discussed potential plans for a city trip, and my sunburn itches like craaaazy.

Maisy's birthday is tomorrow too, which oughta be crazy, since we're having it at the pool and it's supposed to be crappy out. Ooooh well.

Anyway. I basically just posted to say I got some pics from the fourth of july party up! Such a good time!!! Yay.

Check it out here!

I also just won Fossil sunglasses on Ebay. Yay!

Cynic Princess- out.

So...let us talk about a lovely day shall we? Yesterday we had our fourth of July soiree, and honestly I don't think it could've gone any better. Other than the fact that I am brutally sunburned from hitting the beach on Sunday. It hurts to move. Eh. Annnyway.

We all went over to the pool at Nana's, and she had an amazing buffet with fabulous food as usual. Michael and his family got there first, but Colin called and asked if it was ok if they came over early! Yay! It totally was since the company had only consisted of French old ladies who felt the need to dig they're long nails into my lobster red back. Thanks guys.

So they got there and we swam, and talked and ate and laughed. And the pool was ultimately perfect. truly the best it has been all year.
I had a mudslide, and it was amazing. And it hit me a liiiiiiittle, but just enough to be fun and make Colin make fun of me.
And we laid in the sun together and it was ultimately perfect.
We had a barbecue dinner which was divine, and fabulous red white and blue layered cupcakes that mom and I made.

When the sun started to go down, we all got dressed and went to the fireworks. Colin left early with his mom and was going to meet us there. The rest of us drove over, and parked near the parking garage as far from the festival as possible, because my grandfather can't possibly see the point of going where there's other people. When we got there, Michael and I walked down the bridge to where everyone was, and met up with Colin and everyone right by the stage.
It was the usual gang that isn't mine, and I was able to avoid the awkward conversations with people I did go to school with, since we basically stayed by the stage the whole time except when the boys needed a potty break.

It was an ok time I guess...but it seemed like the fireworks went a little too long, and just got boring. there was nothing spectacular about them. I didn't get fried dough either since it was on the other side of everything...but oh well.

The day made up for it. It was a royally good time. Pics to come later.

Gemini daily horoscope:
There's something out there that you really want -- something you've been wishing to have for a long time. You've been saving your pennies, working overtime, depriving yourself of even the most basic of daily pleasures and flipping through catalogues to find the right deal. Well, don't look now, but today could actually be the day you find it. Make sure you have the cash on you and do some in-person comparison shopping.

Utterly ironic that I just happened to be going to Freeport today to get my Coach purse. I still had my birthday money in my savings that I had saved just for this occasion, so my parents and I went down early this morning (well, like 9 or 10ish). We stopped and got coffee at DD, (duh) mostly to make sure my new Debit card worked before going to Coach. For if my card got rejected there I would truly just kill myself.
So we did that and a few minutes later we were in Freeport! I was so nervous/excited I had butterflies. It's always so awkward and thrilling when you go in there and the ladies are all watching you (even though they're super super nice), but I was fine once I got there, since I've been like 8 times or something and even did the purchasing thing once. I squealed when I saw my purse was there. I was so horrified that the tourist vultures would clean the place out, but alas they did not. I grabbed it, and browsed around with it over my shoulder. My mom and I calculated and it turned out to be under $100! Weeeee now I could get the other smaller more universal one I had wanted, which also ended up being less than planned! Hoooly crap this was fate. the lady came over to talk to me for a bit about how classic the white demi was, and I said I really shouldn't get both, but since I made Dean's list it was justified. She was shocked for a moment then looked relieved and intrigued as if it all made sense as to why this teensy girl was investing in two Coach purses.

Then I wandered back over to the wallets which I had seriously been wanting and it turned out THEY were cheaper than before too! So I figured it out and realized I could get all three for what I had planned on spending for one! Perfect. It was meant to be. So I bit the bullet, remembered my horoscope and paid with my brand new shiny debit card. It was so thrilling watching them wrap everything and my wallet got put in this soft little drawstring bag. they even already knew my address from when I registered to buy my wristlet! It was lovely! It was so super fun browsing with my mom, and I even got some ideas of what she liked. Usually she just feels out of place there and isn't very enthusiastic but everyone was in such a good mood, it was great.

After the purchasing, my mom asked if anyone was hungry and we wandered next door to the sushi restaurant. It was still only like noon, so I just got a seaweed salad, but it was soooo perfect, and just like the ones I had in NYC every day we were there. It felt like we were there, it was so incredible (and because LL Bean wasn't in view). Everything was just divine and perfect. I am a happy happy girl.

So...Colin's birthday was splendid. It was a lovely dinner and fun to see everyone. Ironically it worked out so that Nathan from the show (who even more ironically is my brother in the show) showed up randomly, and we totally sat together and joked the whole time, thus making me not the oddball one of our age group. Hooray!
My chest pain is feeling a little better and the dr. put me on a no carb diet just for the weekend to see if that made a difference for my stomach at all. I think it did, but not enough to make a lifestyle of it, or to give up caffine. I know my limits well enough by now I suppose.
Fiddler is going well. We had a blocking rehearsal for the crazy scene of "rumor" and that was cool, and it's been rediulously hot lately so we've been at the pool a lot. Thank god for that.
I finally got to Freeport the other night with Jordan, but like always, all my stores (my two I wanted to go to) were closed so we basically went to Starbucks... (iced white chocolate mochas are the best thing on the planet) and LL Bean for way too long. We seriously need a new system.
My mom, sister and I, also saw The Sisterhood of the Travelling pants yesterday. It was amazing as predicted, but very off from the book. My mom and I both bawled. Not so much for the obvious reasons, but it brought back a lot for me, and what I don't really have anymore I guess. I miss having a tight group of friends who complete me and everything. But I guess my situation is just different. I do have friends...I need to stop saying I don''s just that they're so dispersed all the time. And in all honesty, I don't have many who are actually like me. I want to be spontanteous and random, and live a little...can't people see that life is way too short to go to bed at 8 when you're in college? Honestly now.
I guess Bailey taught me a lot. Anyway... for that reason I'm going out with Colin and Nancy today mini golfing or something...wherever they take me. We shall see.
I have to go enjoy the View and wake the sleeping equestrian sister from my floor.

Yes, I am a "mostly sunny partly cloudy" person I guess. Or so I've been told. Well fine. Here's the partly cloudy part...if you can tolerate the negativity. My deepest apologies.

My grammy is back in the hospital
My car is retarded
My stupid school is saying I don't have enough credits to "be" a junior. I'm sick of getting screwed over.
I pulled my back yesterday opening my window. It hurt like hell.
I don't feel good. Can't eat anything without feeling nauseous and sore, and my chest hasn't stopped hurting since I ate last. I need to go to the doctor and do something about it (I don't particularly have time for this)

I'm sick of being short.....and single.

There, now that that's done.
The mostly sunny forecast:
Fiddler is fun
The weather has been nice
I got a freaking adorable bathing suit on sale!!!!
Pomeranians under $1000 do exist.
I am seeing the Sisterhood movie TOMORROW!!!
Summer IS looking up for the most part, and I'm loving it.

and....for today's forecast.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY COLIN (our beyond fabulous music director, and my bestest friend)!!!!! :-)

Yay! That does indeed make a good day.

This just in:

I am officially cast in the Broadway Rocks show that CLT is doing November 12 & 13. WHICH just happens to be the weekend the RENT movie opens, WHICH means I can see it with people I want to see it with! It will be a RENTastic weekend. And I am beyond psyched for the show! As lovely director Ron Bouffard said on my voice mail (in fabulous gay voice), "I hope you are as excited as I am!!!!"

Yes Ron. I am. Weeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

Also- speaking of gay boys, new fab musical in my repetoire: Zanna Don't, with my Jai Rodriguez. Looooooove!!!!

(even if I just like it because I am a fairy...whatever)

That is all.
You know you love me.

So ok. This is the first entry of the new "blog." I'm not quite sure how all this works yet, but I'm a fast learner I guess, so we'll see. Currently, I am quite exhausted from getting up at 5 and spending 10 hours in the car, but it resulted in getting an Aunt Annie's pretzel *swoon,* the email of a NYU actor boy, and picking up the little sister. Who I actually am quite glad to have home because I feel very outnumbered the way it stands now. She was ultimately fabulous at stage night, and everyone loved her. bla bla bla. she was a bit peeved that she was known as "Mal's sister," but hey...I said I'd prepare them for her did I not? She had a good week I think. I personally wish it would not be 50 degrees anymore and I'm desperately wanting some sun again. I guess some silly Florida going brat took it with them, AGAIN. Ooooh well.
I'm going to try to figure some more stuff out here, but stay tuned... blocking rehearsal tomorrow. Woo!

~til later.
