Les Miserables

So I went with the various french classes to see Les Mis up in Cleveland. It was pretty awesome! I think in a lot of ways I liked it better than Phantom of the Opera. Phantom relies a lot on special effects while in my opinion Les Mis was a lot more symbolic looking and interpretive. My favorite character was Eponine. I also liked Javert though I didn't like how he randomly cracked and killed himself, maybe he was a little unstable to begin with. Anyway, when I got home, I downloaded a few songs for my ipod. Since then, I've been singing what I know of "Do You Hear the People Sing" Rather loudly. Mom was trying to talk to me earlier today and she's like "Do you know what you have to do for me?" I started in with. "Do you hear the people sing? Singing the song of angry men" I thought it was funny but I don't think she got it. Actually, she's pretty smart so she probably did and was just choosing to ignore it. After the play, I asked Madame if she had Les Miserables in it's book form in French. She said she had the three volume abridged version. I let the subject drop.

Speaking of books, we started our 'novel' in French class. The quotes are because it's not really much of a novel it's actually a script. WHICH ABSOLUTELY DRIVES ME INSANE! GRRRR! Okay, I'm done. I'm not going to complain either because there's not much I can do about it and besides, it could be worse...we could be doing evil grammar!
