I was at a ball! :)
And just for the record, I also had a Cinderella-blue dress. It was a blast...this was my sixth dance and it is always one of the highlights of the year. This time, we had eleven girls over at my house (including my sister and I) to get ready all day. We all helped with each others' hair and took tons of pictures, and then went to the ball, danced the night away, and then came back here to sleep over. Twas grand. And this was actually one of the best spring balls I've been to. I generally like the Christmas balls better, just because they're smaller and friendlier and there's a better ratio of guys to girls (though the guys are always outnumbered =P). Usually I end up dancing with other girls a ton and am a "guy" a ton. I wasn't a "guy" during a dance once this spring, and I got asked to dance a lot more then I ever have. So it was all in all a glorious weekend.
After saying all that, I'm going to gush a bit. THE WHOLE 25TH ANNIVERSARY CONCERT OF LES MIS IS PLAYING ON TELEVISION TONIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Actually, it's playing right now. I watched up to the point that I'm at in the book, but I refuse to watch past that. Still. It is sososo incredible. *dies of happiness*
Now, as for the blog challenge. Here we go again.
-2: a favorite movie-
Ha. Hahaha. You've got to be kidding me. There is no way. Okay, here goes nothing.
Pirates of the Caribbean. The first one, that is. For no particular reason at all, I adore this movie. It makes me laugh like no other movie can. I love Jack so much it's unhealthy. I have a HUGE awesome poster of him hanging on my door. <grin>
Jane Austen-style films. That's right, bring on your Pride and Prejudice, Emma, Northanger Abbey, and Persuasion. And how about things like Cranford and Wives and Daughters too? I've probably seen anything and everything that fits into this category and time period.
The Princess Bride. Ohhh, I love this movie. It can be super corny but it holds a special place in my heart. It's the perfectest mix of romance and adventure, with masked strangers, awesome sword duels, hilarious sidekicks, danger and revenge, secret hideaways, battles of wits, damsels in distress, more duels, and a happily ever after. Yeah, it's pretty sweet.
I know there's more. I know I'm going to publish this and then think of a movie directly afterwards and facepalm. Ohh well. You get the gist of it. Depend upon it, I have plenty more favorites. Any favorite movies from anyone else out there?
