"Well Mama, If You Want That House Your Just Going To Have To DEAL WITH IT!"

Well I'm home from College Hurray!
I am now currently driving my mother crazy...  you see the cast is having a fund raiser for our costumes  so our first performance is SATURDAY. Not the actual show mind you, but a few songs, and scenes we will be preforming to raise money and interest in the show.  Last night at rehearsal we went over "The Major General's Song" and it made me GIDDY inside! This will sound weird, but when ever I sing a song like that that s fast and complicated its like 'water skiing for my brain'. Just before the music starts your floating there in the water then, the intro starts and your off, and the faster and better you sing it the better you feel. Its a RUSH! Haha.  So iv been singing the song for 2 weeks now, and Its been ok, because Mom hasnt been there to listen, and NOW im driving her crazy... This was only furthered by this mornings mail...
My Pirates Of Penzance record album came in! Of course as soon as i got it open it went on the player and I was singing along.  I was walking through the living room and Mom had this look on her face, and I said  "Think you can sit through 2 hours of this?!"  (because its an Operetta)  to which she says "I was just about to say that be-yatch Linda Rondsat is driving me crazy!" Haha I then said "Well if you want that retirement mansion your gonna have to grin and bear it so I can get the Tony!" Mom: "Ok, if thats what its going to take..."   I also found 2 more tea cups to Grandmas set, they will be going to the lake ASAP!

Last week in all the Tornado mishap I forgot to show you my latest scores.  Found the chartreuse planter I got at my favorite thrift store 'Value Village'  for $0.99 , Then I spotted the Jello mold and though "THAT'S what the Casablanca needs! Molded Jello!"  for $1.29.  

Well I'm off to practice this musical insanity I signed up for! (And wouldn't have it any other way) :)

Mick, I am sincerely sorry about your parents lake house. I looked at the pictures and was shocked. You guys have alot of work to do. Congrads on school!! I wish I could be at the Casablanca in June, you guys are going to have a great time.

Oh my goodness - I have that same Jello mold! It comes out looking pretty neat and you can put a cherry in the little indentation that ends up on the top. The Casablanca definitely needs one!

I'm hoping to get a photo out to you soon - so I can visit The Casablanca in spirit ;)

Hope your parents' lake house repairs go smoothly!

How fun! I used to love preparing for a show, it's the ultimate! Value Village is one of my favorite thrift stores too!

I need that planter REALLLLLL bad. If I find something to trade would you be up for it or do you love it too much to give it up? You have the Linda Ronstadt/Kevin Kline "Pirates" album? He is one of my all-time favs (of course "In & Out" is #1 on my KK hit parade). I used to make my mother read all my bad poetry. It's just a mom job, that's all.

Okay, when you are on Broadway, I'll have to sell my truck to come see you perform on opening night! I love the green planter. What a great color!

My son used the same lines on me, and I am still waiting for even a down payment on a little shack.
However, he IS in the music business and hanging with some recognizable names. A mom has to be pleased with what she gets.
