Went shopping with Mother today to look for something nice to wear to Mark's Bar Mitzvah. After about an hour in XXI forever, we found a really nice sleevless grey dress and a really REALLY pretty purple silk shirt to wear over it. I'll have to get the dress shortened, but I'm really happy with the outfit overall. I'll wear that day-of. For Shul the night before, Mother and I got smiliar but not matching dresses from White House|Black Market. Mother's is kind of a low-top that flairs out at the bottom, and she wears it with a plain white cammie and a thick black-and-white belt. Mine is much more form-fitting and doen't flair at the bottom, but kind of resembles a greek-style robe. Very stylish. I also got my first pair of really high heels, which are NOT as umcomfortable as I had expected and I really enjoy tottering around in them. I'll post piccys of this stuff later.
My brother is having his Bar Mitzvah next month. He's going to be freaking 13. I'm going to be 16 in August. Dear lord, I feel OLD!
Other Exciting Things:
SOLO/ENSAMBLE IHSA CONTEST!
I played 3 events; flute solo, piccolo solo, and flute duet. I got a Division II on the Pic solo, and a Division I on Flute. I didn't really want to stay the extra hour to find out what I scored on the Duet, so I dunno 'bout that one...I was mildly upset about getting a II on the Pic, but after looking over what everyone else had gotten, I didn't feel AS bad. TONS of people got IIs, including Alex Slepack (le gasp!) and about half of Honor Band. And I got really nervous for that piece and didn't play well, and didn't deserve a I. But all-in-all, I'm pretty pleased with how I did, considering how freakin' RIGID judging was this year. Man........so many IIs........
Well, not really. Basically, I had been hanging out at Shayna's (David, Katie, Andrew, Shayna, Kirstyn, and myself) and Andrew offered to drive me home. We turned onto the one-way part of Schafer, and narrowly avoided sliding into a pole. We instead landed in a ditch on top of a rock. Stuck. Apparently, Andrew's van is so old, it doesn't have 4-wheel-drive, or for the matter, proper brakes. But no one was hurt and the van didn't get broken. It did, however, get really, REALLY stuck on that rock, and so he had to call a Tow Truck, which ended up showing up at about 12:30 at night (the accident happened at about 10:15) I waited with him until his Mom showed up. Geez...scary stuff O_O
Also randomly read today that the Guy who writes Megatokyo (which I decided to start re-reading for lack of other interesting things to do) had a baby <3 congrats XD
Eh, that's all, I think.
