TEXAS has a whorehouse in it!  
Lord have mercy on our souls.

So I didn't get a callback after my audition on Sunday evening, but I guess they saw all they needed to see.  I got cast as one of "Miss Mona's girls," which, roughly translated, means I'll be one of the whores.  To quote a line from the show, "Yee haw."  How on EARTH am I going to explain what a 'whore' is to Ethan and Aaron?  One of my friends suggested letting them watch the movie and figure it out for themselves.

*sigh* 

Anyway, it's a great big YAY.  After I registered the kids for school, dropped them at a friend's house, went to a Dr. appointment, worked with numbers all day at Nolan's business, I needed a little good news.

The music is very fun.  The dancing makes me nail bitey, only because I'm going to be gone all next week when they're teaching all the combinations.  Eeek!  But the beach=fun and I've not been on a proper vacation in a long time.  So no guilt.

My favorite line  so far?  "No whips or rough stuff.  This ain't the Marine Corps!  No three or more to a bed.  This ain't the circus!  And no kissing on the mouth.  This ain't the junior prom!"

MAN, I love the theatre.

Woohoo!

Carrie, you're my favorite whore in the world!

And sorry to say something so inappropriate, but really, when was I going to get another chance at that?

Love you!

Congratulations!

You know, it's funny; I've been called a lot of things in life, but never a whore. :D It's new!

I'm sure you'll be the best one, though.

I'd love to fly down and see you perform one of these days...

You know you're always welcome.

Fort Smith's welcome center is the old bordello from the red light district off of 6th avenue. The name?

Miss Laura's.

When I visited, I was told that I could "drop my pants and come to work". Besides being 15 at the time, this was before my "I think everything has sexual innuendo" phase kicked in.

Embarrassed does not even begin to cover it. Only in Arkansas is the welcome center a whorehouse. Geez. And when you first walk in, they hand you copies of health certificates old doctors used to give the women as proof that they could legally work there.

Well hell, give me stockings and a corset while you're at it!

Congratulations! It sounds like it's going to be a tonne of fun :)

How on EARTH am I going to explain what a 'whore' is to Ethan and Aaron?

Good luck with that...

Thanks! I think it will be.

And I'll figure it out. Probably.

oh dear. Have fun with that one!!! *giggles*

Congratulations, Carrie. :)

and I love your fave line :D

(I need a theatre icon. Instead, please enjoy Theodore's art-form)
Carrie Leigh: We're actorscarrie_leigh on August 6th, 2009 12:22 pm (UTC)
Theatre icons are hard to come by, but Theo's art will do in a pinch. And hey! It's topical!

BRB. Currently dying from laughter.

But no, seriously, congrats! Not er...sure how to explain to the kiddos but it sounds like a rollicking good time (I say with tongue-in-cheek). :D

E and A
Granny told Tom Ethan and Aaron should NEVER need to learn what a whore is and he laughed at me!

Re: E and A
I agree. Wholeheartedly. I'm still thinking about it. Do you think if I just ignore it it will go away?
