I've had a lot of motivation to write lately, but no time to do it, which leaves me feeling very frustrated and aimless, in a way.

It kind of reminds me of Virginia Woolf's "angel in the house" essay, because it seems like I just have so many other things that *have* to get done, writing falls down to a very low priority. But since the other things don't get done, either, I'm left wondering ....... what exactly do I do all day?

I suspect I'm just subsisting.

(Review of Sweeney Todd later, if anybody was expecting and/or wanting to see that. It just so happens that Sweeney left me extremely motivated to write, but since it's late now and I have Temple in the morning, I can't write. I have to go to bed. Darn sleep.)

I'm going tomorrow to see Sweeney Todd at the Kravis Center. :D

NYC was fantastic. We got back Sunday night and I'm still not over it, wishing I was still there, etc. My sibs and I met David, my longtime internet buddy, on Friday and basically just hung out around Time Square all day, with a brief detour to Central Park. Nicole bought me a copy of the Sweeney Todd revival recording, which I've been listening to ever since we got home. Then that evening, after David went home, we saw a preview of Les Miserables.

Review of Les Mis, for those who care. You know who you are. )

The next day, we decided to tackle the subway system, with .... not a lot of success. Let's just say that London was way easier. We were able to get around, eventually, but we were mostly confused. Anyway, we walked around Greenwich Village and Chinatown. Most of the time was in Greenwich Village --- stores just kept popping out at us, and there was a very embarrassing segment wherein we couldn't figure out that we kept going in and coming out and going back into the exact same subway platform. *blushes*

That evening, we saw Phantom of the Opera. My brother bought my ticket, because I didn't want to spend money on another show, but I didn't want to be left behind, either, and he owed me a birthday present. *g*

Review of Phantom, if anybody cares. )

There were a few disagreements over what to do, mostly because some of us preferred to just walk around and soak everything in, whereas the others would have liked to do some actual sightseeing. As it turned out, we just didn't have enough time to see everything.

We're already planning our next trip.

So we're going on Saturday to look at some used money pits, I mean cars. Oh gosh. I can't wait. [/sarcasm]

I'm bored and I'm grumpy. None of my usual "activities" appeal to me at the moment, and nothing's happening for me to watch.

I was up very late last night trying to find lyrics for the Queen of the Night aria from The Magic Flute. Finally found them and was satisfied. Then I got caught up reading the lyrics to Elisabeth -- naturally, since it happened to come up on my computer, I had to sing along, especially for Die Schatten Werden Langer and Boote in der Nacht, and it's kind of silly to sing along if you don't understand the words. So yeah. Anyway, now I really want to learn German.
