Baba Drama

Image Hosting by

I am afraid Baba is a bit of a drama Queen, a wickedly out there girl who cannot miss a Gala. She has decided to do a solo of a most famous scene from Macbeth.

A dark Cave. In the middle, a Caldron boiling. Thunder.

Enter the three Witches.

1 WITCH. Thrice the brinded cat hath mew'd.
2 WITCH. Thrice and once, the hedge-pig whin'd.
3 WITCH. Harpier cries:—'tis time! 'tis time!
1 WITCH. Round about the caldron go;
In the poison'd entrails throw.—
Toad, that under cold stone,
Days and nights has thirty-one;
Swelter'd venom sleeping got,
Boil thou first i' the charmed pot!
ALL. Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and caldron bubble.
2 WITCH. Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the caldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt, and toe of frog,
Wool of bat, and tongue of dog,
Adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting,
Lizard's leg, and owlet's wing,—
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.
ALL. Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and caldron bubble.
3 WITCH. Scale of dragon; tooth of wolf;
Witches' mummy; maw and gulf
Of the ravin'd salt-sea shark;
Root of hemlock digg'd i the dark;
Liver of blaspheming Jew;
Gall of goat, and slips of yew
Sliver'd in the moon's eclipse;
Nose of Turk, and Tartar's lips;
Finger of birth-strangled babe
Ditch-deliver'd by a drab,—
Make the gruel thick and slab:
Add thereto a tiger's chaudron,
For the ingrediants of our caldron.
ALL. Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and caldron bubble.
2 WITCH. Cool it with a baboon's blood,
Then the charm is firm and good.

Oh my goodness-- I think I work with this woman!

be careful Lori :-) Tread carefully darling and watch your words :-) Baba is just one of my alter egos. The Amazon Queen, le Enchanteur and Ebony Wilder are others. Sibyl (le Enchanteur) is best known around here but everyone who knows me well knows my Baba side. Cackle!

Ducking for cover! Thank goodness she came...we would wonder what was wrong indeed!

(Brilliant Heather, and I do love the image!)

Of course, forgive me, what was I thinking? :) Proper obeisance shall be made (bowing with deep reverence in the Baba's august presence)

PS: Perhaps the Amazon Queen, Sibyl, Ebony and LeEnchanteur will join Baba on stage for a grand finale number! That would certainly bring the house down!

What would this be??

A Gaggle of Gigglers?

An Enclave of Enchanters?

A Craven of Crones?

the mind boggles

And the audience begins to chant "BA-BA, BA-BA, BA-BA...." Anticipation grows.......

Good grief Lori. Pander to the girl and she is likely to do anything. You saw Snow White's dance - which Leonie would have screamed with glee about. Well she was far more decent than she might have been. Baba was going to have us showing off her sexy red underwear but the Amazon Queen insisted upon a bit of decorum.

I'm sorry. I've honestly had a really rotten week and I'm kicking up my heels a bit.

At 10:16 PM, Blogger Heather Blakey said...

That makes two of us sweetheart and kicking up one's heels is a very good thing. Hope you noticed all those smiles mingled amongst my comments.
No apologies - Baba is becoming very fond of you - her new best friend and all that. :-)

Ahhhh... thank you.....tell Baba she's really pretty sweet underneath...

Well, then, let us both start a conga-line with Baba and her pals. You lead. Cha-cha-cha-cha-cha-bump! :)
