My Friend Jennie Lamere, Writing Update, and Sugar Overload

10 May

Do you see this girl? This girl is none other than… JENNIE LAMERE.

If you haven’t heard of Jennie Lamere, you have now! Jennie is 17, and she just won a fabulous hacking competition by creating a Twitter app to filter spoilers out of your timeline. She calls it Twivo, but I call it the River Song app.

The coolest part about Jennie is….

I KNOW HER! Yes, it is true, I know Jennie.

I KNOW SOMEONE WIL WHEATON POSTED ABOUT ON TUMBLR.

I met Jennie when I was actually pretty young. We were in the musical Honk!  together. My first impression of Jennie was

“Wow, she’s a really pretty dancer.”

Yes, she dances too! Good looks, huge brain, and she’s one of the nicest people I know. I reconnected with Jennie this year when I started High School. Jennie was a senior and I’m a freshman. We were reacquainted when I joined the Liturgical Dance club that she was heading. She recognized me before I her, and it was fabulous to get to see her again. We were in Little Mermaid Jr.  where she showed off her bright smile and wonderful attitude while dancing better than I could ever dream to. Jennie, if you see this, thanks for dancing in front of me during “Under the Sea.” Without you, i never would have remembered that dance.

Today we had the senior farewell at school, and I admit I got a little teary that I wouldn’t be in drama with Jennie next year. She is such an inspiration on so many levels and I would be a very different person if I hadn’t met her.

Jennie, darling, I love you. I wish you the best of luck in your future. I hope we stay friends as you branch out into the world with an already impressive track record of a genius and a wonderful person.

Okay, I’m going to stop before I cry. One final picture:

As an update from my last post, I am now 40 pages into my play. I think I may be able to finish act one tonight and depending on how it goes, if I’m very lucky I’ll finish act two by Sunday. However, I think a more reasonable estimate is Tuesday for the first draft to be finished.

I actually typed so much last night that my hands were sore today. Not. Cool. But, hey! I got vitamins. Finally.

My friend Claire and her family are some of the nicest people to me. I hang around their house more than I hang around anywhere else. Mr. and Mrs. Claire’s Parents are both in the air force, so you don’t mess with them, but they’re sweethearts. A fun little story about them:

In their pantry, they had this huge industrial bag of gourmet jelly beans. They are pretty  normal people, so they like the traditional flavors: the orange ones, cherry, etc. So whenever I went over their house, I’d eat the ones they didn’t like i.e. popcorn, black licorice, cinnamon. Recently, they finished off their favorites, so today in school Claire brought me in their rejects. It was about 1/8 of the bag left.

I finished it. I ate them all. Right now I’m recovering from a sugar coma. Claire and I played a game where she would give me two and I’d eat them at the same time and then I’d guess which flavors they were. It was actually really gross, but I’m still reigning champion. My mouth tastes like black licorice and winning.

Time to keep writing. For anyone who actually reads this, thank you for putting up with my madness.

Au revoir!
