My cousin is getting married on Saturday, and she asked me to give a reading at the ceremony. As usual, I’ve procrastinated — but not totally on purpose, honest!! School work has been taking up so much of my time — creating 35 drawings (OK, I cheated, 32) and completing five assignments (including a full-colour room rendering) in seven weeks took a lot of time. Plus it sucked the creative mojo right our of me.
Now I have less than three days to figure out what to read, and I’m at a complete loss.
I need to come up with something FAST. How about a limerick?
There once was a girl from Nantucket…
Hahaha!! OK, no, maybe not. A poem?
Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
This is the best I’ve got,
So it’ll have to do.
See, told you, no creative mojo.
But I haven’t been completely delinquent — my dress from Peach Berserk in Toronto has arrived. Yay!! Kingi Carpenter creates fun & funky patterns that she silkscreens onto any colour fabric that you want, so chances are every dress will be one-of-a-kind. This is the dress I picked — just a simple cotton dress:
And the pattern is Swingin From The Chandeliers in purple and pink:
I found a pair of pink metallic shoes*, and my toes are freshly-polished in bright iridescent purple:
So, my fantastically smart and talented and creative blog buddies, I need your help!! I want the reading to be fun and light-hearted and a bit unexpected. But it can’t include the word “scrotum” — I ran that one by my cousin and she poo-poo’d it. (On a side note, I did use the word “scrotum” in a speech at a friend’s wedding and I didn’t get struck by lightning or anything).
If you have something that fits the bill, please leave a comment and let me know!! And the sooner the better, because I’m just a tad stressed about this…
