Yes folks, its finally over.
18months (apparently) since the first idea spawned in Mr Warners strange warped mind and after 7 months of hard work, we're finally done. Done. Finit. Finito. Niente. Nein. Guten tag.
First of all, a big CONGRATULATIONSto everyone invovled and a MAHOOSIVE thank you to all those that came to see it. We all hope you enjoyed it.
Enough playing with font size now.
Secondly - GOODIE GOT HIS WILLY OUT ONSTAGE! *ahem* Now that I've got your attention (and no I wasn't actually kidding there lol), I applaud the cast for their quick thinking. Warner's improv ideas really did help huh?
Lol other not so similar "highlights" included
- Kinks getting her shoe stuck on the stage with the rest of us pretending that was meant to happen
- People getting lost in the curtains on her exit and wandering back onto the stage... ho hum
- Machete getting perved on by the creepy sound man who said "she should have that (referring to cleavage baring costume) as her permanent school uniform!"
- Me having costume problems onstage and saying "Erm.. Jaaan? You wanna help me with my KIMONO... Erm d'yu like it? I like it... (/end buying of time)"
- Scanlers' 60-second costume change, aided by about 5 hands - but then being forced to go back on stage wearing no top.
Anyway, pics are being put up on The Orange Locker as I speak. Ask me for the site or something. Again with the explanation, I put them up in a MYNSIL member-only site so that they won't be perved on by all Old Man Druckers out there or even stumbled on by all your Troy Donahues. But yes, the tasters are up at the moment, the rest are to follow.
BUt yes it was a blast, and I think we've all made some new friendy wendys from it. (THough some have made BETTER friendy wendys if you - hate to use my townie voice but- if you get what I is saying aiii?) Of course, we've also made a few enemy.... wenemies... Okay, no, that doesnt really work. But yes, to settle the score, Mark the props person and Mike the Mic man are up here.
And of course, how could we forget Toby, the annoying little shit (tm).
Year 7's who want to get laid early. Gotta love em.... I think?
After-show party last night. Let's just say that SOME of us got a bit merry. Big hats off to Dom (voice of god) and Josh (the man) for arriving with beer and PIZZA. And yes there is picture evidence of Josh (the man), Scanlers and I doing the robot. I, robot.. Ha... Sorry. There is also a picture of Manda with her head at Phil Cow's crotch but yes, ANYWAY.
Yesterday we went to go see Madagascar which is pretty funny. Actually, it had us in hysterics fro the beginning. But... then again, we may have just been giggling at anything. Quote "HA HA HA HA THE ZEBRA IS TALKING!" , "OH MY GOD THERE'S A LEMUR! HA HA I just LOVE LEMURS!" and things like that. But GO SEE IT! If not for the film itself, go for the whole talking-animals concept (it IS Disney after all)
PS talking of films I want to go see CHarlie and The CHocolate Factory when it comes out. Mr Depp looks amazing. If by amazing I also mean a strange, freaky, white man, then yes, but AMAZING none the less.
To wrap things up (mmm Chicken Caesar wraps!), I'd like to end with a nice happy la la message for you, from me.
HAVE A GREAT SUMMER!
Yep, that was it.
Feel happy now.
Let me know what you're all doing this summer mmmkay?
I'm going to Hungary.
No really, I am.
Lol, if anyone makes any witty remarks on the irony here, I'll shoot you.

A good idea but unfortunately its not allowed.
Just a quick note to say THANK YOU to everyone that came to our Breaking Down Barriers Citizenship Conference Day. The whole day wasn't half bad at all and I hope you all learnt something from it.
Highlights for me included:
- Being told that Brazil was in fact, a third world country
- Ward being reminded that he was actually, not such a big member
- The free lunch in which me and Billiam surrounded ourselves with the platters of food. Quote "Oh Zoe, I should have known that you would be sitting here"
Also, the Question Time was really good and - WE IS ON TV! lolol there's a lovely shot of Lizamin, Henna, Machet, Moz and Dan Richardson as well as Natalie, Hoskins, Cass, Gail and me! Bill gets a nice clip of him talking as does James, the King of blag, saying something about how we, the young people, truly ARE the future.
Gotta love it.
Anyways, all this has made me think. I realised that in the way that only a select few people were representing the countries, I can't even begin to imagine how a few people can represent a country in the real UN. I mean, with our model UN there was SO MUCH CORRUPTION!
I mean we had countries getting people to sign something on the pretence that if they didnt, they'd be the only one not to and everyone would destroy them. Ahem. Peer pressure anyone? We had countries deciding to sell their women off in exchange for economic security in the form of LOTS OF MONEY PLEASE. Oh wait. That was Brazil. We had countries telling the press (both Keynan and US) lots of controversial stories for them to broadcast. Oh wait, that was Brazil too.
MY POINT IS! If a model UN can easily demonstrate how much of a shambles/conspiracy everything is, how an earth does the ACTUAL UN successfully/fairly work?
Well, all i can say is, I guess they won't have countries writing propositions to each other titled "To Sweden, with love Brazil xXx" PS I like your shoes.
At least I hope so.
On another note - have finished my first reading of the new Harry Potter book. No worries, I won't release any spoilers but I have to say, its not as good as the others. Well actually, I dont know. Its different to say the least. A lot darker. Personally, I didnt feel satisfied after reading it as I felt it seemed kind of unfinished. Yes, i know its part of a series but all the other books, whilst indicating there was another in the series to come, all managed to somehow "wrap up" within themselves.
Meh, all i say is i was shocked. SPOILER ALERT do not highlight this if you do not want to see references to what happens < why would you kill him?! He can't die!! Personally, I thought the book "skipped" through things too quickly. Suddenly Harry's in love with Ginny - what? where? And where did Cho Chang suddenly disappear to? Bill and Fleur married so soon? Harry's unconcious and suddenly Gryffindor win the cup? Its all a big RUSH! Too much focus on the whole Voldemort/prophecy thing - which even though is interesting and well planned - I'm actually starting to tire slightly of. Finally finally finally - we want more SEAMUS! >
Okay, rant over.
Finally - just another bit of propganda sent from Camp Zoe to pressure you all into coming to another dealy I've been involved in. (sorry guys, first its the gig, the newspaper, then the conference, now this - its the yearbook next lol)
GREASE THE MUSICAL hits the Civic centre next Tuesday and Wednesday. Hope everyone has bought a ticket - there are a few restricted view seats available from Mr Warner - ask Cast +Crew or something. Please do come and watch as we've been working on it for AGES and you get to see us all in funny costumes.
And of course you can view our wide wide range of acting, singing AND dancing talent. Hum.

It's been a while since I last did the business and I have got SO much to just randomly blab about.
Where to start?
Well, as always chronological order seems to be the best way to go.
First off was the wonderful Togfest from yeeeears ago, which was GREAT. Because *tries to control breathing rate* ME AND SPALFA (SPALFA AND I) MET SIX.POINT.FIVE!
(Cue squeals and young boy of about 12 shouting "Look out its the flying bimbos!") - True story.
I see those looks of confusion on your face. I understand them. Thats right! How can two girls, dressed in oversized Togfest T-shirts with lime green (i kid you not) bags of programmes slung across their backs, be anything remotely bimbo-ish? Oh thats right it must be the Pamela Anderson cleavage.
SO! Anyways, to be honest, and luckily for you and your sanity, the feeling of "EEEE" has long passed so UNFORTUNATELY there will be no in depth description of exactly how we ended up handcuffing them before locking them in a cow shed. (may not actually have happened)
HOWEVER I'm sure once Spalfa gets here she maaay choose to release little pieces of information for those jealous types amongst you. Which I am sure there are many.
Hey! Dont you "Six Point who?" me! lol
Topic number 2 on the agenda.....
...Grease rehearsals - Mr Warner is like a non stop bundle of entertainment! Seriously, you have NO idea what he's going to do next. At a recent rehearsal he'd asked us to come into the hall silently, but of course, we all know getting 150+people into once room without making a noise is like asking someone to be absolutely still whilst they have a watermelon fired into their ass. From a cannon. A watermelon with spikes... *plots*
MOVING ON! Warner was like hummm at first and then suddenley, without warning he went from talking calmly to shouting "YOU HAVE BETRAAAYED MY TRUST!" at us all.
Honestly I didnt know whether to laugh or to cry. Damn ex-actors.
Talking of Grease- I hope everyone is coming!! There are still a few tickets left but they're mainly restricted view. But to be honest, those are fine unless you'r sitting behind someone with a head the size of a watermelon. With spikes..... *plots*
I'm sure you'll all smile with mirth as Leila, Stride and I come on wearing our dresses. They'r named "Pea-Green Vision", "Pink Marshmallow" and "Blue Monster" respectively, you hazard a guess at what they look like.
And yes, you've all heard of what happened when i first met Blue Monster.... lol
Finally to round this blog off, I'm going to finish off with some quotes of the week. Yes I know this is relatively short for one who hasnt blogged in a while, but the family are around (again) and they're gonna start wielding things if they don't get to gamble soon. On the plus side, all this escapement into the study has actually made me finish my 9pages of 4-week Comms coursework in the space of ... one day. Hum. And who says I'm a not a good role model?! ... lol
*Skinner walks into busy classroom while Zoe is taking a picture to surprise Charlotte (who went to Live8 the lucky moo) Long story*
"So if anyone does see Katie can they tell her to - Zoe... are you taking pictures of yourself?"
"Dont JUDGE me Mr Skinner."
*Cadwallader walks into same classroom just as Machet is finishing her sentence*
"-a big gay CUNT!"
*Harriet raises her hand*
Hewitt: Yes ... SYNTAX woman?
Harriet: ... Err..*struggles to remember what she was going to say* I was... erm..
Hewitt: *continues* You could wear a cape with a big S on it. Ho ho ho
*cue discussion of the reference to Superman* - I'm going to fail English.
Skinner: What is the biggest area of government national expenditure? A B or C?
Emma: Erm.. B) the NHS?
Skinner: Nope, Zoe you try. You should know this as you will have been listening in the whole of last terms Economics lessons.
Zoe: *thinking damn, I put B...* Erm.. A) Education?
Skinner: Okay, maybe you didnt.. It's C)
I have to say Mr Skinner, I'm flattered by your vote of confidence in me!
Anyways that about it for this week, I gotta go as my family are trying to start a barbeque which will inevitably turn into some sort of forest fire if I don't intervene. D+M blog next!
