1. Pictures from performance: 06:10

Categories: None -- Permalink
Here are some pictures taken by Calum Tsang at our Renaissance dance dress rehearsal last Thursday. More pictures to follow.

I firmly believe that hoop skirts should go back in fashion. They're so much fun to wear.

That said, I wore malongs for two days. This one was... err... slightly nontraditional. I really should look for black or invisible straps for these things...

ライオンと虎は猫科の2つの違った種である。 The lion and tiger are two different species of cat.

2. Skype party: 14:57

Yesterday, my mom threw a Skype party for me. She invited many of my best friends to our house and set up a teleconference with me and my friends. Because Skype does three-way voice chats, my boyfriend also joined from Dumaguete. It was _so_ much fun talking with everyone!

It seems to always take us an hour to get over technical difficulties if we're using Windows. We tried three different VOIP programs - Skype, Gizmo Project and Yahoo Messenger - and none of them worked to satisfaction. After struggling with audio problems and dealing with consistent crashes, my mom and I decided to go back to Mac and Linux (respectively).

I haven't figured out how to get all the webcam stuff working under Linux (or even if it's possible for me to view their webcam), but voice worked pretty well.

That was a terrific, terrific way to start my day. =)

3. Irish party: 15:01

Graduate House held an early celebration of St. Patrick's Day. It was tons of fun watching stepdancers in person! =) Way cool. I got to talk to lots of other people, too. I like the way Graduate House organizes all these events for the residents. I should drag Calum to more of these events. He likes shooting events, but it's hard to take pictures at something unless you know someone connected to it. =)

After the party, Steve, Mike, Calum and I headed out to Mel's Diner for a late-night snack. We had a lot of fun talking about different things. Afterwards, Steve and Mike played chess with me. We were all almost falling asleep at the table, but we managed to play a good game.

「おまえはどうして、百匹のねこ、千匹のねこ、百万匹、一億、一兆匹のねこといっしょに、食べられてしまわなかったのだね。?」 How does it happen that you were not eaten up with all those hundreds and trillions of cats?

4. Skirt: 15:05

Categories: None -- Permalink
Also, I'm nearly done with the skirt I'm hand-sewing following the pattern Tita Gay helped me with before. Actually, I started off following the pattern, but then got frustrated by the tracing paper I used. I guess I really need to do pattern tracing on a hard floor, not some cardboard spread over the carpet in my room. I can do it on the kitchen table next time.

Anyway, the skirt is shaping up to be a skirt.

It felt very appropriate to be sewing that skirt while watching the BBC version of Pride and Prejudice. Awesome show, by the way. The woman who played Elizabeth Bennett in that one had such beautiful eyes, and she fit the role so well. Definitely like it more than the recently released film.
