Delfino meets a princess, Euro kids still mad at Bush
Jessica Delfino has a way of meeting interesting freaks. Like Bridie, for example, who is playing Ariel in the Princess Cabaret. Ariel is one of seven Disney princesses who were sitting around drinking with us last night, including Snow White, Cinderella, Jasmine, Tinkerbell, Sleeping Beauty and some other bitch I could't place. Their show takes the Disney characters and paints them with a darker tone. Sounds fun to me. I asked Ariel (Bridie) what she had in common with the other princesses. She enumerated a list of rules that Disney imposes on all their princesses. I'll try to remember them all.
1. One or both parents must be dead.
2. Step-parents are always cruel and awful.
3. The kiss of a true love will always save them.
There were more. I just can't remember right now.
As I was walking along the Royal Mile, I found out that European Children are still really really mad at George Bush. They were throwing wet sponges at him.
My show had another great audience last night, and I'm waiting for there to be a slowdown. I mean, I'm not waiting. I'm out there flyering and trying to get my show reviewed, etc. But I'm sure there are going to be some slow times. Don't want to take the good audiences for granted. One regular listener of Keith & the Girl, Rhiannon, came to both shows. At the second show, she wore the t-shirt she bought at the first show! Awesome. Thanks Rhiannon. You are a lovely girl.
There's some stupid press event today that I have to go to. I doubt it'll do any good. But you never know. Better to go and be sure it sucks than wonder later if it'll help. Sigh.
Time to make the haggis!
