Beware! From here down everything will have to do with Les Miz. You have been warned.
Funniest Moment that made me think of Les Miz:I was listening to the radio and "I'm Yours" by Jason Mraz came on. The part where he says "I've been spending way too long checking my tongue in the mirror," made me double over laughing, thinking of Jolllly. :)
Top 10 things For Non-Mizzies to know so as not to offend their Mizzy friend:
10. Les Miz is about the 1832 STUDENT REVOLUTION!! NOT THE FRENCH REVOLUTION!! If you want the French Rev. you belong in the Scarlet Pimpernel fandom (P.S. Love you, Percy!)
9. The musical Les Miserables never was, never has, and never will be written by Andrew Lloyd Webber (he wishes). All credits for the musical go to Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schonberg.
8. A large number of people do die in Les Mis, for one main reason. It's because the plot of Les Mis involves a barricade...and people fight on barricades...with guns. If you don't understand this there's not much I can do.
7. Les Miserables is NOT a depressing opera. If it's "too sad" or "too operatic" for you, you have obviously no experience in life. And one day life will hit you REALLY hard. And I will be there to say "I told you that you should've seen Les Miz."
6. Javert is NOT the "bad guy." The only time he will ever be the "bad guy" is when he forgets The Nightstick:)
5. All together now! It's pronounced "Lay Miz-ur-AHBl"!!
4. No one has the right to think that Zac Efron should even be considered for the role of Enjolras.
3. Canon = True to the book "Les Miserables" written by the amazing genius, Victor Hugo.
2. Yes, there is a difference between the OLC, the CSR, and the OBC!
1. Do not, I repeat DO NOT!! make a Mizzy angry. Consequences will be deadly.

My Current Les Mis Playlist: -There Is Life Outside Your Apartment from Avenue Q (For Marius)

-Good Feeling by Violent Femmes (For Marius...maybe Joly)
