emptychairs - les miz

How fast the minutes fly away and every minute colder.

Okay, so by now most of you have probably watched this:

Susan Boyle on Britian's Got Talent singing I Dreamed A Dream from Les Miz.

Yes, her voice is great! She's a fantastic singer. But I'm really shocked by all of the people just going insane by it.. making websites about how you can't judge a book by it's cover, and calling her the ugly duckling, etc. Is that really necessary? When you first watched this video, did you just assume she was going to suck, because she was older, wasn't skinny with shining blonde hair?

Maybe I've just been doing theatre for too long, but in my experience it's rare that the girl that is a 32 DD, size 4, and drop dead gorgeous is the most talented on the stage. I don't know. Anyone want to weigh in on this?


• According to the National Academy of Sciences, lack of health insurance results in lost economic value equal to $178 million to $356 million every day, due to the poorer health and earlier deaths of the uninsured.

And I don't know, thaat sounds like a really low estimate to me. Maybe I'm just a pessimist.

I want to thank everyone for their support on the house.

Sadly, it doesn't look like it's going to work out. I haven't given up hope yet, but the neighbors want to buy it and tear it down, and want to do so before I'll be approved (if I even AM approved) for the governments $15k for first time home buyers. Kinda sad about that. Who tears down a gorgeous house from 1900 just to extend their yard!? Argh. Plus they were mean! The neighbors on the other side and those across the street were sweet, but I was looking at it again with some of my family members, and their kids, plus Little Random, and they were just laughing, telling jokes outside and the nasty tear down a gorgeous house to extend their yard neighbor said to me: "It's a quiet neighborhood, and that's how we want it to stay!" Glaring over at my laughing kid! Because nothing is more offensive then a laughing child. Anyway. Long story short, I'm convinced a lot of people are genuinely jerks.
