In the Army: Polly/Maladicta

The dress feels wrong around her legs, though Polly’s been wearing one around The Duchess for months. The quartermaster just isn’t comfortable giving her ‘male’ pants, though, and the supposed female pants have mysteriously never arrived. So she wears the skirt over her trousers as she runs drills, shouting in soldier’s ears, over their heads and around them until they don’t even turn their heads when they hear her voice, just start marching, stabbing, digging faster instead.

SO Monstrous Regiment was amazing. Just… amazing. When the biggest criticisms  I can make involve me explaining the book to you for it to make any sense? GOOD SIGN!

Maladict was AMAZING. Polly was great. Tonker and Lofty were good (Tonker fantastic, didn’t like the play’s version of Lofty as much but good for what she was!).  Igor was just perfect. Wazzer was good, but not odd/freaky enough for me? Jackrum was off the walls. Blouse was just… holy shit, perfect embodiment of Blouse, yes, could not have been better. Strappi was also…. Strappi. Very, very Strappi. Jade was also great, though it was a pretty small role.

The play has some amazing stagecraft, great use of levels/doors/props, loved the costumes. I really loved the directing, especially the marching scenes and the locked up in prison scenes.

I missed Shufti, but can kind of understand leaving her out. I also missed a lot of the bigger scenes, but they were understandably left out.

Overall, Lifeline Theater did a great thing and I hope to see more Pratchett plays someday.

WHY WHY WHY CAN’T I GET STOP THINKING ABOUT THAT JOKE?

One throwaway joke is all it takes to make me doubt myself for an ENTIRE WEEK this is so pathetic

so pathetic

BUT I CAN’T STOP FUUUCK

What was the joke?

Okay, let me preface this by saying that I am being really, really stupid about this and have openly admitted it several times and that the problem in the equation is me.

But Tessa made a joke about ‘how you could be friends with me?’ and the musical talent and ahahaha MY FUCKING BRAIN LATCHED ONTO IT AND WON’T LET GO.

I know it’s stupid and, really, really asinine of me so… yeah. <3

PLUSH TROLL HORNS

IMAGINE IF THAT’S WHAT THEY’RE REALLY LIKE.

Sadly, I am STILL obsessing over that joke BUT WHATEVES UM I’M JUST BEING STUPID FCKING BRAIN

In an attempt to put myself in a better mood (see: last read more if you wanna, I guess) and because I’m seeing the play on Saturday, I’ve decided to reread Monstrous Regimentevery day this week. It takes me about three and a half hours to read and, with my transit/lunch/break I can do it EVERY SINGLE DAY.

I finished it today, so one down, four to go.

Today’s favorites moments: Clogston, Paul with the chalk and the Duchess’ speech through Wazzer. I actually teared up a bunch during the end.
