Theatre And Misunderstood Bad Guys




In this year's production of Hound of the Baskervilles,  I'm the bad guy. Not that I'm acting, I never spend any time on the stage. But, I think if you were to look up "Misunderstood Villain" you would probably find "Student Theatre Director" as one of the first entries. Sigh. With all of the nagging, and correcting, and "take-it-from-the-beginning-ing,'' I'm always surprised that I don't have a full scale mutiny on my hands by end of the production.

October




 'I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers. It would be terrible if we just skipped from September to November, wouldn't it? Look at these maple branches. Don't they give you a thrill--several thrills?" - Anne of Green Gables
Just popping in very quickly to say that life is extremely crazy at the moment with play prep and work, but I did manage to take some foliage pictures around the farm where I nanny while I was out enjoying a perfectly gorgeous day.

Recipe - Chocolate Strawberry Banana Smoothie


Two posts in a week, wow. This doesn't happen very often these days. It probably wouldn't be happening now, except for the fact that I'm sick and have been taking it easy in the hopes of a quick recuperation. As much as I love my part-time nanny job, which I do, the under six year old crowd is almost guaranteed to share every cold and bug that they happen to get. With a yucky cold I was looking for something cold and soothing for my sore throat.
