I hate the arts
My poor sister. I bleed for her. She is currently rehearsing the part of MOUTH in Samuel Beckett's Not I in her college in Cork. Click on the link. Go on, click it! That's the whole play. It involves Sally sitting in a chair with her whole body in darkness and only her poor little mouth lit up by a spotlight. It is HORRIBLE sounding. She has to learn the whole thing off and it's dreadfully boring and stupid and makes absolutely NO sense. And she has to wear horrible black clothes and no one gets to see her face which makes it even more awful and stupid. She owns nothing black so robbed loads of bits of mine. I tried to entice her into wearing these cute pointy black flats and a skinny little belt but she said: 'No, Lucy. It has to be plain and simple. No extras. No pretty. No cute. Just simple.'
Beckett! What hast thou done to my sister?!?
