I want to be the costume designer. Has that been taken? I would get everything from the rescue mission's rejects and make sure nothing fits anyone. Everyone would have dark tights with white sandals two sizes too big in the heat of the summer and tee shirts under strapless dresses. Jeans and long skirts for swimming. Everything matching by color for the big dance numbers....

I'm going to need a large cardboard box with an R and a V painted on the side please. Plastic garden chairs optional but I do like streamers a lot.

In addition to being a back-up cat singer (you know, we definitly need a song for the sold cat with back up cat singers and dancers) I guess I can be a Rodlet kid. People still ask me what grade I’m in.

As the person who bought the cat, I can work with at least 6-8 cats (cat actors). We can have private rehearsals in my fenced-in backyard (for safety) with lots of grass for eating and critters for hunting.

Jilly's Unimpressed Sister will need a cell phone. Possibly the Twins as well.

And giant cue cards to share the conversation with everyone but Jill.

like DangerNoodle said, i like the before better.  at first i didn't think it was the same person (with new hair and new eyebrows and a different angle and different lighting, i guess it is).    but the biggest thing i notice is that Plexus gave her Crazy Eyes.

Wait wait wait!   The woman who posted said that the photo on the left was her AFTER photo, so apparently Plexus gave her a fuller face and made her look heavier.  OTOH, maybe it just damaged her thinking, being a stimulant and all, and she gets confused easily.  (That could explain a lot with Jill.)

I'll be Deadbeat David's mom.  She seems completely normal  - even wears pants and has short hair.   I will have to insist, however, that they visit me no more frequently than every other year.

Jill would, no doubt, be horrified that I had to use "remarried" to fit the rhythm. Sorry, Jill -- "vow renewal" just didn't fit. 

It's the morning of the vow renewal, and Renee and (and Kaylee) are putting on the lovely hot pink t-shirts blouses that go under their 1890s saloon girl dresses. How they found the privacy to sing this, I don't know -- it's the magic of the theater:

[(AND KAYLEE)]
When Momma remarries
We’ll go as a pack
As public as public can be
Just Momma, four boys, all the girls (I’ve lost track)
Mom’s parents, one father, huge flowers
And me...
When Momma remarries!

[RENEE]
When Momma remarries
We’ll poof up our hair
And put on the shoes we can find
I'll put all the hair ribbons
Into my hair
And put on a dress
That’s so bright we’ll go blind!
When Momma remarries!

[(AND KAYLEE)]
Momma, get out your white dress
You've done it before

[RENEE]
With Great-gran on saw!

[BOTH]
Momma, God thinks you’re a mess,
But you think you’re great,
With nary a flaw!

Oh, Momma, such stress
To shlep down the aisle
On your day.

[(AND KAYLEE)]
Keep Jill in the spotlight,
Eternally our plight,

[RENEE]
It never ends, day after day,

[BOTH]
Our Momma remarries today!

[RENEE]
When Momma remarries  the theme of the day will be:
"Let me entertain Jill, plaster on a smile!
I will say a prayer!"

[(AND KAYLEE)]
"I will curl my hair!"

[RENEE]
Go hide, Kaylee!

[(AND KAYLEE)
Smile, Renee!

Momma won’t take our advice
She gets all the joy,

[RENEE]
While we pay the price.

[BOTH]
Momma, can’t we eat the rice?
You got married once,
You need that thrill twice?

It could be so nice
If Momma knew marriage was work,

[(AND KAYLEE)]
But Momma gets married

[RENEE]
And...

[(AND KAYLEE)]
Married

[RENEE]
And...

[(AND KAYLEE)]
Married

[BOTH]
And just wants the fun, what a jerk!
Our Momma...
Our Momma...
Our Momma...
Remarries today!

I tried out my Jill impression saying "Hel-LO Facebook FAH-low-errss!" and my kitty snapped her head around and gave me the most WTF look.

I guess that means I did it right.

Fiddler on the Roof inspired scenes: 

A duet between Nurie and (and Kaylee) based on "Matchmaker, Matchmaker, Make Me a Match"

For a random non-dancing scene (because dancing is sinful) we could do a rendition of Stacy's Mom but change it to Nurie's Mom. Jill can just stand in the middle of the stage in her modestly tight clothing and act surprised that everyone finds her attractive.

I think we are forgetting a starring role.... someone needs to play the part of Jilly's PHONE. I mean, after all, IT is the reason for so much... I suggest this costume:

Agree!  Jill's probably pissed we are talking about her musical and not, well Jill.  She shouldn't feel persecuted though because not many people get an entite musical written about just themselves unless you are say Freddie Mercury or the Von Traps.

Once I knew what happiness was

Makeup and tchotchkes

I sat through the whole video of Jill's oldest 4 kids mimicking Sweet Mama's modesty, homeschooling, abortion, and submissive housewife standards.

Kaylee shows graphic pictures of post-aborted fetuses.  One horrific picture is of a severed, blood-dripping head of a full term baby.  Jill says she is going to weep and begins weeping.  

I was amazed when the camera pans back to Kaylee's face and she is full-on grinning, Jill style! I do wonder what she was thinking right then.

I've never heard of full term babies being aborted by severing the neck.  Please tell me this is only propaganda and not actually done.

Everything I've read about late stage abortion is that these were well wanted babies with tragic outcomes and are not compatible with life.

      Went to a writer's group meeting yesterday.  First time I've gone to this group's meetings.  Different from other groups I've participated in - this one was a series of prompts and exercises.  I was in a bit of a mood going in - Father's Day weekend for a recent widow is no laugh matter; several social/annoying things happened at Shabbat service in the morning, and one of our service leaders made a "somebody really should" statement of the writing variety and once I hear someone say "someone really should" I usually can't unsee the idea until I've had a try at it.  We did a word association map for one exercise, then wrote something based on part or all of the word map.  I picked a section of the map that had some references to knives and fancy dress balls to write from.  I'm pretty proud of what I wrote in 15 minutes but it's pretty clear that I was in a "mood."
       
       
      The night of the long knives came and went as a plague on the first born of the land.  Men perfectly healthy went to bed only to be jerked from sleep with knives against their throats.  Here were the leaders of men, thrust against walls at the point of a stiletto, there the young men only following their orders, and over there again the family men who didn't exactly plan to pursue this path but perfectly content where they'd found themselves.  At the end of a blade, deep in the depression years, taking their payslips home at the end of the week feeling they'd done a good job, and a little extra for mother in the kitchen. The years of children, church, and kitchen. The good women. Most of them not owning a fancy pair of shoes or a party dress, for who had time?  The children needed their mothers at home, the men away at work.
      The children of course, were not silent.  Soldiers burst into their homes, dragged their fathers out of bed.  Mothers clutching their husbands, children wailing for their papas. The ones who understood left quietly, reassuring the children on their way out - it's a special exercise, I couldn't know about it beforehand, otherwise I would have told you.  Hush child, I'll be home in a few days. They knew they'd be lucky to make it to the end of the block, of course, but let the children hope for a little bit longer, before all hope fell away and their eyes opened to the hatred their own fathers had taken part in.
      Others didn't understand, resisted and fought against the soldiers who came into their homes.  They'd believed in the banners and flags, they'd stood and cheered, they'd enjoyed seeing fear cross the faces of those who understood.  Now they themselves fought back in fear. Fear of losing their lives for who could possibly know what comes next? Wagner wrote of Valhalla, their wives faithfully attended church; surely there was something to greet them when the heart stopped quivering, trying to pump blood flowing onto floors, and truck beds, and sidewalks.

      Almost lost my little dog Molly today  Thankfully she seems to be ok but the next 24 hours are crucial. My ex husband came home to find her blanket wrapped around her neck real tight and she was just laying on the floor. He got her untangled and the blanket had blood on it and she had pooped and peed (probably so scared while it was happening) She started coughing up blood and her one eye is all bulged out and bloody. He called me and I told him to get her to the nearest emergency vet and I would meet him there. They said she's really lucky to be alive. They said to keep a close eye on her breathing the next 24 hours but after that if she's ok she should be fine. They sent her home with eyedrops and an anti-inflammatory medicine for her little neck. I'm so happy that she is ok but man, my heart is broken just thinking about how terrified my poor little baby was! I really really hope dogs have short memories so she doesn't remember this but even thinking about how she was most likely struggling just breaks my heart. I know she's "just" a dog so this is probably silly to alot of people, I totally get that, but she is my baby. I never had children. Molly is my baby. Everytime I think about how she was probably feeling I just cry. But I'm so glad she's alive.
