A Pleasant Chartreuse

I used to babysit this kid, and now he has my dream job.

"Market Square Studio". Market Freaking Square Studio.

That was an interesting article. I wonder why they were so interested in the costumes, but didn't talk at all about starting a ballet company, which also seems unusual, risky, and interesting. I can see why you'd feel a touch green.

Are you still in touch with him?

Well, if it weren't for your intervention in his young life to keep him alive(while you babysat him)he'd be another nobody we never heard of. there, doesn't that warm the cockles of your heart? It's all because of you......

a) he's cute
b) they misspelled "Tudor"
c) I know about backing things with straight-grain canvas, too, from one of my other obsessive hobbies.

No point to c), particularly. I'm just sayin'.

Cynthia, his founding of the Ballet has been covered before....he has come into fair prominence in the last couple of years and several articles have been written.

For years when anybody asked me what I wanted to be, my answer was immediately "Wardrobe mistress". I'm practically chewing my arm out of envy.

No, I'm not still in touch with him. I think the last time I saw him in real life he was about 12 years old. Maybe less. But I do remember he used to sing opera while he was trying to go to sleep. "I have to practice", he'd say sternly if I peeked my head in to say "Shhhh...."
