Les Miserables: High School English Edition

If you thought Eddie Redmayne and Samantha Barks were good in Les Miserables, think again.

Below is one of many five star films my friends and I produced for our High School English class. In case it's hard to follow, this is the crucial moment when Marius is fighting to protect the barricade and Eponine sacrifices herself to save his life.

The cast is as follows:
Marius: Katie Larsen Carter
Eponine: Annie Stewart Grow
Cinematography/SFX: Rebbie Groesbeck Redmayne*

I have seen the film in theaters twice. The first time, I wept at the sheer beauty of the story and performance. The second time, I wept because all I could think about were these videos.

Drink with me, to days gone by. Because these seriously were the days.

*You cannot tell me Rebbie Redmayne doesn't roll off the tongue. Let this girl dream a dream.

Dear friends,

If you don't know by now, I am Mormon.

If you knew I was Mormon, you may not know that I am also a Normon.

If you don't know what a Normon is, please refer to this blog I started. went live yesterday and I have been blown away by the response. Thanks for all the support and no thanks for all the mean comments.

This is going to be quite the adventure. I would love to have you all come along.

Happy Friday.

Hey @RobbieGreenock, you’re #fake!

This morning I woke up, stretched my extremities, and pulled out my trusty smart phone.

I checked my Twitter account to find this:

Robbie Greenock, my internet arch nemesis, wants to follow me on Twitter?

Something did not seem right. 

I swallowed my jealousness and Wikipediaed him. This is what I found.

It would appear that Robbie Greenock does not, in fact, exist. 

Unless you count this one person in the UK.

I did a little more investigating and found this article, appearing in the British news source “Greenock Telegraph”, about teenage footballer Robbie Crawford who did something great on the soccer pitch.

His picture appears to be the same one @RobbieGreenock used in his twitter profile.

I further investigated @RobbieGreenock, to find that he has 0 followers, 0 tweets and is following 14 people, all celebrities.

I may not be a detective, but I have read every Nancy Drew book in the Orem Public Library. And based off the evidence before me, I have deduced that:

a)     Robbie Greenock is not a person.
b)    Greenock Telegraph is a news source that covered a story about Robbie Crawford the high school footballer.
c)     Wikipedia lies.
d)    I am being punk’d.

So will the real @RobbieGreenock please stand up? It would be much appreciated. #kthxbai
