January 15. Day 15. Horror show

It is one of the most solemn and important duties of every parent - collecting and preserving totally embarrassing photographs of one's darling child to bring out for the 18th or 21st birthday party. To this end I have been either spectacularly successful or an epic failure or perhaps both. True, I have a most awesome collection of photos that some would consider priceless for the aforementioned purpose BUT these photos are some of Drama Teens favourite moments and certainly would not be embarrassing for a microsecond. And not only that, in his circle of dramatic souls nothing less would be expected. This is why the Rocky Horror birthday party was an awesome idea. To celebrate the 40th birthday of the movie (how old does that make me feel) Studio Theatre and Cafe is putting on the movie with a live floorshow and we were in the audience on opening night. And what a huge amount of fun that was.
They will let in any Riff Raff ....
The 50 seat theatre was pretty much packed with tragics people ready to not only do the Time Warp and sing the songs but also recite the dialogue. They had folded newspapers so when Janet sheltered under a broadsheet to get out of the rain, so could they. These people put the fan in fanatics or is it the other way around? In any event this was a room full of square pegs not one bit interested in fitting into society's round hole and I love them for that. My only problem is, if a photo of Drama Teen in suspenders and fishnets isn't going to qualify as the embarrassing 21st photo exactly what will? Perhaps one day I will catch him looking like a chartered accountant or merchant banker. That might mortify him.


With the cast
With his tribe
