Musical Youth

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.

Is "Erewash" pronounced 'Ear wash'?

NHS doesn't cover hair plugs?

More like Error-wash. And I disapprove of cosmetic surgery. I'm going to grow my hair back by magic.

Can I presume you'll be wearing your He-Man outfit, raising your Power Sword and proclaiming, "By the power of Grayskull!?" Or perhaps, "Brunetteskull?"

Uncanny timing. I spotted a wig shop today. It's in a place called Wigston. I believe you've been there.
