Since this is the one way I can reach a large number of people... [25 May 2006|07:35pm]

[ mood | cheerful ]

CONGRATS!! to all those who graduated with me from high school in the last few days! We did it! We beat those asshats and their beaurocratic, unfeeling, mostly worthless game! Now comes the hard part... Life. *gasp!* :P Good luck to all those who are now looking toward their last year... And I pity the rest of you that have more than one year to go. :P But still wish you good luck. ~_^
So, lets us all give a w00t!

Or a "hells yes", which ever works better for you. :P

ok, above is a site where i believe they've made a movie called 'An Inconvenient Truth', about global warming. it is a big issue in our lives today, and already we've seen many effects from it (hurricane katrina to start), and this movie will be a good chance to teach the public about how it's becoming a very serious issue. come, you might learn something from it

they're playing this movie at the kentucky theater on june 23rd. i'm pledging (on the website) to see this, and i'm willing to take along anyone who wants to come. i'm not sure about times yet, but we still have a month to figure out

as for future ky theatre stuff: i'm planning on going to Rocky Horror (july 1), and sometime in june i'll probably go and see 'Howl's Moving Castle' again. anyone who's interested in joining me, let me know.

on another note, any ideas about potential things to do over the summer?

Not that anyone reads this thing any more, but here we go. :P

This weekend (20th, 21st, and 22nd) Bryan Station High School will present The Taming of the Shrew (or TOTS, as Amanda puts it :P) by Wiliam Shakespeare. Tickets at the door are $5, and the play should start at 7:30. However unfortunately or fortunately some may think, it is an abridged version and is only two acts. There will be an intermission between the two with refreshments and such sold. Good old busted BS isn't too hard to find, especially if you have map quest. :P But beware, the construction for the new school is still going on (and will probably going on for a while after I gradutate, frickin' liars...), so the place you might think is an entrance, isn't. You can either get in from Paris Pike, or go through the middle school from the Bryan Station Rd./Aniston Dr. intersection.

Another thing, just a thought, The Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event is next weekend. While I'm pretty sure most of you don't enjoy dressage, cross country, or stadium jumping :P, the arts/clothing/random wares fair is incredible. Sort of like Woodland, but with a wider range of things besides art (oh man, there was a pair of leather boots one year... damn my lack of money), and many things from overseas (especially European). And of course, there's always the adopt-a-pet tents to torture yourselves with. ^^''' So, if your down with that, or you admire the beautimous creatures called horses, that might be something to think about/plan to go to together.

Yep... I guess that's it. Good day to you all ^_^ And sorry for the interuption of your friends page. :P

Dinner Party? Picnic? [17 Feb 2006|06:17pm]

[ mood | contemplative and dizzy ]

How receptive would any of you be to going out and having a "feast" or at least a group dinner together somewhere like Bourbon and Toulouse, Golden Wok(right place) or some other type place?

Because I've been wanting to have another group dinner thingy since Prom night last year. So yeah, please reply!

Either that or you guys and gals wanna have a picnic next time it is warm enough?

Drama Club is gearing up... [25 Nov 2005|11:03pm]

[ mood | calm ]

Wow... No one uses this anymore...
Anyway, I thought I'd let everyone know that Bryan Station will be performing their 1st play of the year next weekend. We'll be doing three 1 Act plays:

Christmas With the Cratchets
A really cheesey take off on A Christmas Carol and a show called The Life Styles of the Rich And Famous, except in the play it's Life Styles of the Poor And Obscure. (yeah, har de har :P) The host of the show comes to the Cratchets house, and, of all things, they've just won the lottery...

Night of the New And Improved Christmas
As a christmas present, the elves have been doing extra work (besides at Santa's workshop) and saved up their money to higher a consulting firm from New York. I'm sure you can guess what happens :P ...

Scrooge Has Left the Building (aka - the one I'm in :P)
So, the three ghost and Marley have come to haunt old, twisted Ebenezer Scrooge. But, they quickly find out they've not only got the wrong man, but the wrong house, AND the wrong night...
(btw, I'm the Ghost of Christmas Past :P)

As far as I know, tickets should still be $5 a piece, and we should be starting at about 7 each night. If not, I'll update this post. For reference, dates are December 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. Friday is usually the best night because were used to the routine but not tired of it (read - come on the 2nd if you do come :P).

Jah Hokay. [30 Sep 2005|06:47pm]

I am aware that Ms. H. Hunt has gone off to Wooster, and relationships aren't probably in the best of shapes here, but c'mon guys, summer is wrapping up, the cold long winter days are ahead, why don't we forget about those summer romances (or lack thereof) and gather round a good ol' double mocha vanilla latte (or Jones Soda) at home away from home- Lexington's own Third Street Stuff?

... Yeah. It's been to long guys, senior year is happening for some and quickly approaching others and doesn't the time seem right to enjoy some good nostalgic happy-times in the downtown of Kentucky's queer-ville?

Huh? Huh? Thats what I thought.

Just a note, the Woodland Art Fair is this coming weekend. I'm probably going to be running around there with my mom and grandmother, maybe even my Aunt Penny but I'm not sure if she's coming to town. Anyway:

10 am – 6 pm, Saturday, August 20
12 – 5 pm, Sunday, August 21
Admission: Free

The Woodland Art Fair is definitely one of the most anticipated events of the summer. Every August since 1976, Woodland Park has become a venue filled with over 160 artists and craftspersons selling unique, handcrafted items to include wood crafts, pottery, stained and blown glass, oil, watercolor and acrylic paintings, works on paper, photography, fiber works, and more. Voted as one of America’s top 200 art fairs and one of the top “juried” art fairs in Kentucky, this event typically attracts more than 55,000 people over a two-day period. Other attractions include live entertainment on two stages and a variety of food vendors. The First Security Bank Woodland Arts Fair is brought to you by Parks and Recreation and the Lexington Art League.

While the fair it's self is held in the park, and one must pass muster with the local art society to set up a tent there, the past several years have seen churchs in the area renting out their lawns for the weekend for others to sell their goods. Those are usually worth a look too. So, if anyone else feels like coming... You know what to do. ;)

MAD Mag Rocks My Face Off [16 Jul 2005|12:06pm]

OK...y'all...MAD Magazine is having a contest to see who can get the most Mad Mag subscriptions. Since I am a dedicated MAD reader, I have decided to take part in this contest.
Here are the steps so that I, Stephanie Martin, can be credited with convincing you to become a MAD reader.

1. Go to madmag.com/freetrip.
2. Enter you birthday
3. Enter in my information (as follows: Last Name: Martin
Address: 414 Aylesford Place Apt 4
Lexington, KY 40508)

You may say, "Why can't I just go to the magazine rack and buy an issue of MAD?" It may seem convenient but it really is not. Saving my friend's money and time (because you are not driving all the way out to the magazine rack) is important to me. Informing my friends of what humor is really about is also on my priority list. So, help me help you and order a subscription of MAD today

Avast ye of Rocky! [09 Jul 2005|06:09pm]

Right, so have we decided whether we're going to meet at Rocky, another place downtown, or at a staging area beforehand?

Also, what're your current costume plans?

On a semi-related note(insomuch as it's sommat we're doing in the immediate future): We're just going to meet at Joseph Beth's on x night (either the 14th or 16th can't recall) right? Not meeting any place beforehand except for those carpooling, correct? Anyone thinking about leapfroging to the Joseph Beth thing after catching a movie at the nearby cinema?

That's aboot it...
