Ted ... I'm going mad...

Right - well, the MASKS are done now anyway. Fifteen of the bastards ( or it might be fourteen - I kinda forget right at the moment ... ). AND a giant pair of scales prop made and painted. AND the reverse side of the flats painted with a fetching pastoral scene. Sheesh.

And you know how much help I got from the freaking students ?

None !

None at all ! Not even from the guy who's supposed to be doing all the tech / stage stuff !

DOUBLE bastards !

I was going to take a photo of them to put on the ole blog with the dept. camera ... but SOMEONE has taken it and NOT put it back in the electronic equipment drawer !

TRIPLE bastard !

Hmmm ... maybe triple bastard anyway ... I could well be the HOD who took it for the arts awards evening on Friday ( that went to freaking ten thirty - that's a REAL fun way to spend a Friday evening too ... actually, it was a nice event - but it's not so nice when every fibre in your body is screaming at you to sleep and you've spent the last three Friday evenings threading wool hair into masks or constructing supports for the flats in the production without any help from the QUADRUPLE bastard students who are supposed to be doing this stuff ... argh ! ).

Sigh. So I'm very tired now. A weekend working at school will do that to you.

I think I just want to go home and play video games - but we've still got the food shopping to do ( and with Viva being on call till 11, she really can't go out ( yay ), and then there's the ironing.

And yet if you did skin the lazy little bastards - you'd be the one going to prison!?!?
