just came in from my backyard, crumbling a raspberry turnover into little pieces so that the birds have something to eat. then, back to math review in preparation for the CT and then memorizing my lines for the oral presentation of the french CT. i wrote most of the script which is entitled "La route de brique jaune," loosely based on frank l. baum's the wizard of oz.
the cast of this award-winning (or hopefully, at least, high graded) play:
diana as la lionne, jenny hoang as dorothy, tania as l’épouvantail (the scarecrow), kiyanna as le magicien d'oz and myself as la gentille sorcière (glinda, the good witch in the movie).
La Gentille Sorcière: Non, non, non! Ne sois pas triste, ma chèrie.
L’épouvantail: Mais mademoiselle sorcière, Dorothy ne pourra pas aller à ta maison!
La Gentille Sorcière: Mais je sais comment elle peut! Dorothy, il est simplement: cognes trois fois tes soulier rouges, et repetes “Il n’y a pas de petit chez soi.”
La Gentille Sorcière: C’est tout!
i definitely won't be winning any screenplay awards for this piece of work, but it's the best i could do considering the amount of lines we'd have to memorize by monday and my semi-decent knowledge of french. it's a predictable plot but to make up for this, we're going all out with costume, makeup, hair, set... supposedly. if we have time.
i'm also juggling my reading, which i really should take a break from. i've finished "the picture of dorian gray" by oscar wilde (excellent, read it!) and finished writing my book review on "spud" by john van de ruit (hilarious) for the school newspaper. if there's time for a new issue to come out, which is doubtful. next in line would be:
- lord of the flies by william golding
- the hunchback of notre dame by victor hugo
- the kite runner by khaled hosseini
- re-read catcher in the rye by j.d. salinger
- re-read anne of green gables by l.m. montgomery
