So my children are great dancers. So what?  
So a very sweet girl sent me a DVD of Hairspray this past week. I've been watching it on a kind of non-stop loop since then.

Nolan isn't a fan.

Don't get me wrong. He loves theatre; we have the same degree. He was Master Carpenter for the Dallas Shakespeare Festival for a few years, and we were in some shows together in college, but that type of musical isn't his thing.

I'm okay with it. Doesn't keep ME from watching it.

Earlier this morning the boys and I were watching it, and they were doing a stirring rendition of "Good Morning Baltimore," when he got up. He glared at me and sent the boys outside with a football to play. I just giggled. He growled about keeping the boys away from musical theatre, and mumbled that they should play outside more. I rolled my eyes.

Later, we were laying on the couch watching one of the last numbers, the Miss Teenage Hairspray pageant part, and my sweet husband, who has no idea the extent of my James Marsden obsession, turns to me and says, "I need a jacket like his."

Me. (innocently) Who?

Nolan. Cyclops, there.

Me. (giggles hysterically inside)Ah. Yes. You could totally pull that off, babe.


And it's MY fault that the boys like musicals? *coughs* My husband(who is definitely straight)'s shoe collection and taste in clothes indicates otherwise.

Brent didn't like Hairspray at first either... but now he goes through and says "I love this part, I hate that part... I love every scene with Corny"

Yup. That's my hubby. :)

Boys are silly, is my theory.

And *sob* my Hairspray DVD is all worn out... I guess that's what happens when you watch it about 100 times in 3 months...

300 times?

I know. He's a mass of paradoxes.

[looks around furtively]

I know all of the words to every song of several musicals, and can hum along to many others.

I'm straight, but I don't have a large collection of shoes, nor do I have a wide selection of wardrobe options beyond the T-Shirt and Jeans Realm.

Also, I do have to say that the boys liking musicals is probably the fault of both of you, Miss "I Enjoy Being a Girl".

I laughed out loud.

It's very true. That's my new audition piece, and I only rehearse it when they aren't home. No matter how funny I think it is, I can't have them singing that around town...

Yeah, that could be bad...

Totally off topic question... why are you leaving Caliga? I really only read it for Pansy and Cormac...

Though it is likely personal, so I won't pester. Just know I will miss you over there.

Hairspray is wonderful, though. I used "Miss Baltimore Crabs" as an audition piece for a musical I was in this spring. So much fun.

Why am I leaving Caliga?

Celeste and I wanted to write with some other friends. We left in a totally amicable way, and we've started a new rpg. With some people that you know, actually. Jandjsalmon, mynuet, airmidm, mugglechump... a lot of the girls that write for Caliga have decided that the wanted to write for us, too. Both comms.

I don't know what the people that take over Caliga will do with Cormac and Pansy. But we'll still write them. There may be a few scenes still left that we wrote, I'm not sure what they'll do with them.

Our new community, si_muove_rpg, will start May 15, where Cormac/Pansy will live on. Because, frankly, I can't live without them. ;)

To Carrie & Celeste

You two are leaving Caliga...

In my half asleep state, I nearly sorted my milk, all over my keyboard when I saw that your characters are up for audition.

What ever the reasons are - I'm not asking what they are - you two will be sorely missed. I adore the way you'll have fleshed out your characters and given them life. I will also really miss the brilliant writing.

Thank you, Mala. That means a lot. More than you know. :)

We're starting another rpg with Mynuet and jandjsalmon, to drop a few names. :)

It'll start up May 15, I think. We've been doing this less than a week, and we've already got 27 characters! I'm going to try my hand at Ginny, so I'm very excited about it.

I'm still going to read Caliga. I've got to see if Justin/Lavender/Susan ever happen!
Mala13oct on May 5th, 2008 11:54 am (UTC)
Wow, where do I sign up to read. *rubs hands* I am so looking forward to fabulous witting! I don't have the time and energy to write, but if there is anything else I can do to help you guys, just let me know.

I ADORE your Pansy, and can't wait to read again. I just also realized that I follow Caliga from Pansy's page so crap - now I have to find someone elses homepage to read from.
Carrie Leigh: Pansycarrie_leigh on May 5th, 2008 11:57 am (UTC)
That makes me irrationally happy, that you read from Pansy's journal. But she'll still be played there, I'm sure. No need to switch.

Also, if you go to the OOC comm... um, si_muove_ooc and look at the profile, you can see all the cool characters we have already, and some of their VR's and stuff like that. :)

*snickers* You name dropper, you. ;)

Wait - there was a possibility for a THREESOME THERE and I missed it?? (of course I am pretending that my penguin was not involved in an almost 3way) ;)

Mala! Do not start snorting milk! NO! Step away. Snorting any substance--no good.

Come on over to si_muove_rpg for more Cormac and Pansy fun.

By the way, Cormac wonders what you were wearing when you had your almost-incident.

Sorry. He's incorrigible.
Mala13oct on May 6th, 2008 12:07 am (UTC)
What was I wearing... well, my DA BOMB outfit naturally. It comprises of my favorite ratty sleep shirt, granny panties and the ultimate - a nursing bra complete with disposal breast pads.


PS: About the milk, we breastfeeding mommies need out milk. The snorting part of it, yeah not so good - I agree. :)
