Patrick Stewart is going to be in Macbeth. As Macbeth. In England. For 25 bucks.



*runs around crazy like*

*jumps off of chairs*

Thought you'd like to know......

Note: the first two links are the *last* two shakespeares he's
been in, .......and I've missed. If you drag your mouse over the pictures of the stage on the last link you can see pictures of the theater.

If you timed it right (mid June) you could probably see Ian McKellen in
King Lear. As King Lear. as well.

looks around for composure.....

Veterans Day [Nov. 11th, 2006|08:54 am]
hello everyone,

I spent two hours on wednesday looking for speeches that I agreed with. That fit the way i felt. I never found one, So here it is. because clearly no one sees Veterans Day the way I do. Please read it.

One thing I did find was a quote from a veteran who had been in vietnam while his wife was in college. He said there was so much unrest on the campus that she wouldn't tell her friends that her husband was in the military. he said something to the extent on "It is fine for Americans to protest a war. That is their right. What we have to remember is the individual soldier who does not choose where he or she will be stationed and believes that they are doing good in putting their lives in harm's way."

I wasn't always proud of living in America, but i've gotten to be. For one thing, since the day I was born I've been incredibly stubborn. When I was little I once slept in the downstairs bathroom because my dad refused to carry me up the stairs. I'm still that stubborn but now I apply it to seeing what I believe in succeed. I'm a christian and I want to be a minister. With all my heart. In America I can say that, I can worship my God openly, and I can do it even though I'm a girl. I learned about the puritans, and how they left everything they knew and loved for a waste land so that they could worship and educate the way they each believed was right. And New England began.

I wasn't always into veterans either. They tend to be old and outspoken. But when I went to the oratorical there was a little old lady (it turned out she was 90 years old) there listening to my fairly boring speech. They said she still works 2 hours a day for the American Legion. She was so excited to see me put on this speech. So interested in what I had to say. They all were.

My mum works at the Veteran Memorial hospital in Boston. She says that one third of our veterans are homeless. She said that he first patient was a veteran addicted to cocaine and heroine with diabetes, hepatitis C and an incredible loss of muscle mass. "He was like a baby" she said of handling him. One night when she went in he was groaning "wheeeere's my wiiife". She told me the woman had been dead for five years. There is little to nothing to help him get another job, another home, or even new friends. he was only an example.

Men and women returning from service are given little help finding a new job, especially as many of them do not have a complete education. They are given little psychological help to deal with the horrors they have witnessed and experienced. Many need to create a new life style that accommodates a lost limb, taking away a persons independence and often dignity.

I don't think much of U.S. war strategy; and I know that people that enlist in the Army do sign up for a certain deal of pain, and find something enjoyable in the life style. But not all of our veterans did sign up, and so far as I have seen the overwhelming majority of soldier very sincerely believe that they are, with their pain, in some way protecting our live and homes. and the things that we believe in.

And that's why Veteran's Day should get a little more respect.

(because I had to say it) Happy Veterans Day

heh so i'm rounding off three of the most pressured days I can remember. The first was panic, the second a general stupor and then, today was something like exhausted grief (for all the stress). Much love to matt for really getting me through it and being so supportive (it'd be nice to see you at the game Friday... 7-10, hang around second and third quarter or something, *shrug* might be nice). Uhm, but yeah, lots of school work, this year I really think I could be a straight A student, I'm just too busy to be that much of a perfectionist, i don't really mind, my goal isn't "A's" it's good grades, good 'school participation' and some fun when appropriate XD. So it's all good.

Uhm, I don't really hav much to say that wouldn't be unnecessary and angsty, so i wont, but yeah, I'm alive, and around. *waves* hiiii.

more for me, but if you're interested. i actually foung it on a wiccan sight funny enough. Good straight forward answer...


The Equal Access Act has always allowed students to express their religious beliefs, establish & participate in the religious club of our choice, wear religious jewelry, T-shirts or other religious clothing/symbols of our faith, and hold prayer meetings/vigils outside of classrooms/classes. There are only two stipulations to the law:
1) The meetings or activites cannot be facilitated by a staff member of the school or college,
2) We cannot openly evangelise, but we can share our beliefs and views.

'In the mail? That's illegal!' [Aug. 29th, 2004|09:59 pm]

[music |And the world also starts today- Chobits]

back from my two day excursion to maine. and still in one piece at that. We went to savers when I got home, I got a pair of crazy combat-style red snake skin boots. I'm not quite sure what to think of them yet except they're hard to get into and I don't think I'll ever meet anyone else who's wearing them; at least at DHS any way. I also got a crazy beanie, and a pair of bubble gum pink faerie wings (yay) they're cute. So yeah. I was in a really left wing mood today, but I am happy.

Different update- drama. firstly it sounds like the fall production is going to consist of three or four short plays, which I was really ticked off about at first, but Clark convinced me it would give everyone a chance to assume a lot of different roles and make us stronger as individuals, so in the spring we could do a bigger better production. So that's ok with me. It sounds like I'm going to be producing (as well as everything else humanly possible in atleast one play) so I'm very happy. I have a lot I mean to have happen.

second bit there- plays. Clark gave me a book of one acts to read through (she's gone through a couple others) I've really only found one or two comedies in it, but I really like one called 'Sorry'. need a strong male actor, (hehe rach?) so we shall see, i'd like to see it happen, if it would take some good chemistry (there are only two characters) but it could be cool. *shrug* we shall see.

soo yeah, sorry this entry is kind of junk as far as typing sk1llz. um... hurray I'm home! (exit)

[music |John mayer and maroon 5, what else?]

This actually isnt lauren mawe. this is erin mawe. im laurens cousin and older and wiser by 11 days. i live in pittsburgh and if youre ever here look me up. we just got back from the john mayer and maroon 5 concert and it was fabulous. they played all of our favorite songs. tomorrow we are going to kennywood so we should probably be going up to my room soon to get our beauty rest. yeah the people that were in front of us decided to be annoying as nothing else. they did the two social casulties that should result in removal from the concert: smoking and pda-ing. we arent 100% sure but we think they were totally smashed. they decided that it would be very amusing to blow up a condom and throw it around. that got old after about 30 seconds. the two girls were also grinding in the isles which was wicked offensive. (i decided that i am going to be single handedly responsible for getting people in pittsburgh to say wicked) we got tee shirts which are cool. and then i (erin) had a garlic pretzel at the same time as coffee which wasnt a good idea because according to my mom and lauren i smelled bad. oh well. yeah and ps if you are a girl and havent checked out the guitarist from maroon 5 you are totally missing out. ok we are totally going to bed because kennywood= a very long day. and if you dont know what kennywood is you dont deserve to be told. so go look it up. goodnight!!

<3 erin (and lauren on the side, but she didnt say anything)

here in PA [Aug. 13th, 2004|02:16 pm]
[mood |coldcold]

Hello, I'm alive (in Pennsylvania, hurray). Things is good, it's rainy and cool, I went to A Pittsburgh Pirates game, they lost badly but it was still lots of fun. I've also gotten to do a lot of art geeking with my aunt(I'm actually sleeping in her studio which is t3h c00ln355) learning some new tricks and getting to admire/drool over lots of stuff (Rach you ought to come down some time ^^). Today i got the privilege of sitting in a hospital waiting room for an hour and a half before Erin got her cast sawed off (yay for erin), that's an interesting thing. The we went and saw Eileen and Gerry, my two favorite 4'5 old ladies ^^. They are the best, so funny and energetic.

Which brings me pretty much to now, typing this up. Going to a Maroon 5/John Mayer concert, should be interesting, I've honestly never been to a real full blown concert, so even if it not anyone I'm crazy about (it's featuring John Mayer) it should still be something to talk about ^^. we shall see. And so for now i shall bid you all adieu, only to return after further tribulations and stories. (so probably Sunday-Monday ^^). Bye!
