Performing doesn't turn me on. It's an egomaniac business, filled with prima donnas - including this one. ~Dan Rather.

Star, who is the product of my household, has an extremely well developed sense of the ironic ~ & brothers, so has the poker face down pretty pat too.

So tonight, with the cameras rolling for the ABC1 doco they are making for The Gothic, Star took full advantage of her 5 minutes of fame: She discussed her own private mafia; how famous she is on the islands; how she'll have to sleep in the car ~ or, better yet, land on Alison, if the Gothic runs overtime...indeed, once started her mouth ran away with her completely with no sign of flagging. Unfortunately it took the rest of the ensemble a little bit to catch on. I was just rolling my eyes thinking of all the people who do actually know this child & will be rolling their eyes with me if we are unfortunate enough that they actually broadcast this nonsense!

Fair warning people. The child was JOKING!

Um, what's The Gothic? Just so I can see this when it is on. Sounds pretty funny to me!

Tell her that she would be believable when she has her own paparazzi following her around.

Star looks like so much fun to be with! My Jenn now has announced that she will be taking drama classes at a community college here towards graduation and combining this with her dog grooming school. What the 2 have in common, I've not a clue....but, she is happy as a lark.

Regardless, all sounds inexpensive compared to her brother in university now and little sister who claims a minimum of 8 yrs. of university for vet school. We must start saving more money now....not sure where from!

But, yes, we have a drama queen here too..singing, playing the guitar and doing various accents. Makes dinner time interesting when I am not sure 'which personality' will show up.

Jeanne:Symphony No. 1 in D minor (also known as "The Gothic") by Havergal Brian I wrote about it with link here: ABC is filming the QPAC concert as well as the doco about producing it.

Seeking: Did I forget that bit? Delusional.

Jan Lyn: You are so right. Star is a great deal of fun. Completely right brained. Very expensive to run. ☺
