I went to see a production of West Side Story by the Erewash Musical Society Youth Group today, and it was surprisingly completely awesome. Great performances all round. I really want to be an actor/singer/dancer. Also, eighteen years old, so I can play the cool parts. I'm sure it'll happen some day.
Incidentally, Erewash is the name of an area round here, although I know it looks like it's some kind of code or anagram.
Anyway, when I'm eighteen and an actor, I'll want to look handsome and dashing and perhaps a little less like Adrian Mole than I did the first time I was that age. Here's me, somewhat younger than that, with a kitten:
The kitten grew up to be a big, fat and rather unattractive tom cat, and me, well...
And while I'm at it, here's me somewhat older than that, with friends:
That's me in the stylish black shirt with red roses, incidentally, although Fat Andy's wearing my hat, so I can understand if you were confused. It's quite disturbing how different I looked back then - it was only, what, ten or twelve years ago? I want my hair back. And my original hat.
