I am so proud- my daughter (picture from last year when she was not a blonde) was named to the All-Star Cast for the Virginia Theater Association High School Competition! Fifty schools, a record number, participated.
As I mentioned below, since Henrico High won last year, they were not eligible to compete, but individuals could be named for other awards- AND SHE WAS!!!!!!!
Is this cool or what?
Me? I spent the aftrenoon at a drumming workshop- it was fun. Umm, mostly. It seems to be a very upper middle class middle-aged woman kind of thing- I'm sure the guy who came to 'teach' us has to be wondering about exactly what it is he does- He seems really really nice and probably doesn't have a cynical bone in his body (unlike myself, who could market my blood as something called Cyn-ni-cale). I pondered all the way home why white women have no rhythm.
But we're terribly earnest.
Speaking of which- last year I helped the school with a Poetry Jam- it was fantastic, these were great kids- some of whom had kids themselves, some who had family members murdered or in jail for murder, a couple of whom were normal city-type HS kids- anyway- the yearbook insert came out and there's my picture on the front with the caption "Shann Palmer carefully reads her poem."
Maybe someone told them to use more adverbs.
