So I had an audition. For some launch party. Details not that important. I will also not talk about that cute accountancy boy I met. We had a little time to prepare for the first scenario. Two students, just out of exam hall, one boasting about exam being the breeze, the other not so confident. Guess who I choose to play. The boastful one, of course. In any other situation, I would want to play the other, wavering one because it’s artistically more challenging (and also I relate more to that character, since I’m in that situation often enough. T_T) but I didn’t want to be challenged, damnit, I want that job! Seems like I played it far too well. The next role was me being an obnoxious brat who wants to eat in a good restaurant and insensitive to the guy’s financial difficulties. I almost laughed out loud at the last scenario. I was to be a kawaii-type girl; the guy, an emo rock star. And they suggested, well hey why don’t I act as his fan? Internally, I was like, well hey, you don’t know how close you’ve hit home mister. That’s me, act-cutesy, emo-boys-loving, fan-girling Christina. I was a little distraught after the audition, for having a personality that was so easy to read. I wanted to be like an onion - yes, I recognise it’s cheesy - with many layers. But I guess it’s still possible, just that the outer few layers are the very visible, act-cutesy, emo-boys-loving, fan-girling christina. Also, I need an ultra portable laptop. My thumbs are feeling abused after typing the above on my E65.
Daydream delusion, limousine eyelash
Oh baby with your pretty face
Drop a tear in my wineglass
Look at those big eyes
See what you mean to me
Sweet-cakes and milkshakes
I’m a delusion angel
I’m a fantasy parade
I want you to know what I think
Don’t want you to guess anymore
You have no idea where I came from
We have no idea where we’re going
Lodged in life
Like branches in a river
Caught in the current
I carry you
You’ll carry me
That’s how it could be
Don’t you know me?
Don’t you know me by now?

Realised I did something really silly when installing disqus on tumblr. I did not remove the theme creator’s script from the coding, so all previous comments on this blog were sent to his email.
So regarding yuch’s comment on the previous post, I have often been questioned for my paedophilic tendencies, but I assure you, the only things I want to do is to cook and make clothes for those little boys and girls. Hehehe. And maybe play Cooking Mama on the Wii with them.
Well, one reality TV that isn’t a waste of waking hours. For me, the cute boys did it for me. Simply adorable, how they are so earnest, how they get so excited when learning to do a fight scene, and so happy when they were chosen as the final three.
Sorry, that was my maternal clock rambling.
Isn’t Gwion the sweetest-looking boy on the show? I’m a bit chuffed that Jonny was not in the chosen three, but Lawrence and Harry are very talented boys as well.
I only paid attention to the Nancy’s from show 8 when Idina Menzel appeared on the show, giving feedback to one of the Nancy’s, Samantha, since she chose Defying Gravity as her solo song. It was sad that Rachel was not in the top 3, but Jessie is. Rachel acts really well, and come on, her cabaret performance rocked so hard.
In show 9, Rachel was in a sing-off with Samantha, who has been performing consistently. It was a hard but inevitable choice for Andrew-diva that Samantha was saved over Rachel.
