3rd time seeing it. I wanted to see Phantom, but there were no tickets... so, determined to see a show I decided upon Les Miz. Because it's a good show... and because I like it. Although most of the good people in the cast have left and the nails-on-chalkboard annoying Cosette was still there... but Enjolras was adorbale and had a great voice... Marius was a little heavy on the vibrato... but his solos I liked. His duets were highly annoying, but I believe that was the fault of his partners.

But. 'Twas a good time. And the usher who was ushering my section was something of a character. Which made things amusing.

I really have nothing of substance to say today. I'm kind of sick of everything, but I'm on a rather even keel for me. A little on the depressed side, but not in the whole "fie on the world" state I was in yesterday. So I am thinking that things are getting better. And I am empowering myself to say that I must write to said boy of earlier entries and tell him off because his behavior is ridiculous and there is no reason for me to put up with it because I am better than that and worth more. I suppose it could be throwing away a very lovely friendship, but since it's not really a friendship right now, it's him showing up occasionally to talk to me when it suits him...

I hate boys.

That is all for now I think. A short word is sufficient because my day has been strikingly uneventful.

I am, however, reading Jane Eyre and it is an excellent book. You should all read it now.

The first time I read Jane Eyre, it instantly became my Favorite book. I then enthusiastically recommended it to my sister; as soon as she had finished it, she declared it _her_ Favorite book as well. It has that power! Read it, read it, all!

I may have found a new favorite...

It is a very lovely book. I finished it today... there does come a point at which one cannot put the book down, I have decided. Although there were a couple chapters with St. John that got a little dull. But I didn't particularly like him as a character... although he was a very nice foil to Rochester.

My writing sweatshop teacher's favorite book is Jane Eyre, too. I found this out because I had it with me to read while I was waiting for my conference about my first essay today and she told me that I was reading her favorite book. =)

I think, now that I have finished, it is among my favorite books. I don't think I have a single favorite... I love A Little Princess and Prelude to Foundation and Forward the Foundation and Jane Eyre and The Girls' Guide to Hunting and Fishing all very very much and I don't think I could choose a favorite among them.
