This year Calypso has taken Drama 1 and Drama 2 as electives at school. She has enjoyed them thoroughly and been told she is a natural. I suppose between that and the recent Academy Awards she decided to express her feelings about a rather vexing situation in a dramatic fashion. Because I adore all of you so much I made her repeat her performance just so I could share it with all you lovely people.
I say she deserves an award for creativity in expression of frsutration. If I'd been thinking I'd have made her grab a shampoo bottle like Kate Winslet used to do. But hey, doesn't she look groovy in that awesomely tie dyed shirt?
This weekend we also went to my mother's house so Diana could be fitted for the prom gown my mother is making for her. Mom first made the gown out of old sheets and curtains before she went cutting into the good fabric so she could determine what alterations might be needed and not make any irredeemable mistakes (i.e. cutting too small a size as was the case with the sheet dress) on the expensive stuff. When Mom told me she used old bed sheets and curtains we both laughed over images of Carol Burnett. Nonetheless, Diana was delighted with the mock up dress and wants to keep it simply because the fabric is ghastly.
