THEATRICS…

Sometimes, when it’s all just too damn much and the drama seems to be crescendoing into one of those perfect measures of time best reserved for the stage — or the BIG screen —-

you just have to stop and have what I call “A Barbra Streisand Moment” —

…You know what I mean.

You simply demand that red spotlight.

You stand firm. And, I do mean firm!

Toss your head back in all the dramatic glory and wait for the applause. …the adulation.

And, when you get it — and you will!

Then, you just walk off that stage and fire your assistant for failing to place the rose petals exactly as they were meant to be placed in the toilet bowl. Dumb bitch! I mean, how many times does one have to be told to gently place them in the blue water. You don’t just toss the petals in without any thought!

…just an opinion.

Where’s my limo?

    I don’t like rose petals in the toilet bowl. They always splash back up and stick to my balmy ass!

    Diamond – I completely understand! I would just find it worrying to have things floating about prior to and after my “seating” — but, I don’t think Barbra really sweats or gets balmy. She’s like pristine buttah — and always kept at a slightly below room temperature. I could, however, do with the red spot. Or, at least, I could have used it a couple of times this past week.

    I have to say that is probably one of Babs’ most unflattering shots! And she’s not very recognisable either – but it’s the bit at the end of “Star is Born” isn’t it? I think you’re right what you say about Babs not sweating – I mean in thaa movie she wears a suit on stage doesn’t she and her make up doesn’t so much as drip! Perhaps Ms S is a fembot? (Oh dear you’re gonna kill me now Matty boy…)

    Cool Old Cheeser! Kudos to you! Yes, that is the closing shot/frame from ASIB! …it really is just too much! My mom used to complain that she looked like Peter Frampton in this shot. Hmmmmm… But, yes — I do not believe Babs sweats. I don’t think she is a robot as she does age and gain considerable weight. But, Barbra simply doesn’t sweat.

    Oh I haven’t been around for a few. Sorry I missed the last one especially. You deserve the diva moe, my dear. You do. Hang tough, unless “hang tough” should mean something else in the Castro.

    Sing out, sing out loud; and sack that bitch!

    Gina! LOL! Yes! Sing out I shall — as soon as my head stops hurting. And, I already am on the prowl for a new assistant who will get those petals in the bowl correctly.

    Arghh!!!

    It’s just too much. Let me just – yes, toss my head back and wait for the applause.

    (did the credits roll?)

    This is exactly what I did on Friday when I gave my two week notice!

    Pants! Congrats! I hope you received the kind of applause that you were needing! I’m sure you did! I am certain that you were careful to be directly in the light of that red spot!!! Applause pour vous!
