Haha, I don’t get that bit about how bloggerdygook is “what a proper blog should be like”? 😛
I’ve been stuck with blogger’s block all week, so I haven’t written anything on my own blog, let alone anyone else’s. It is to bloggerdygook that I owe my understanding of what a proper blog should be like, but truth be told, my life is a little short on the sort of “drama” required to write a post like sulz’s. I’m not going to Macau, after all!
Actually, there have been some dramatic happenings of sorts in my life lately. Well, “dramatic” in the sense of dramatisation: my brother has been asked to make some fake food for the school production of Shakespeare’s “The Tempest”. The food is supposed to be big and visible, and durable enough to last for multiple performances. My brother quickly realised that he had bitten off more than he could chew; the play requires a feast. So my brother has roped in his friends and family – that includes me – to help out. This involves a lot of papier-mâché, gluing and modelling, and, once it’s dry, painting. It’s funny when you realise that making fake food takes a lot longer and consumes more time than the production of real, edible food. I’m not sure what that tells us, but I’m sure it’s food for thought!
When I said I was stuck for ideas with the post, sulz jokingly suggested my “dramatic love life” as possible subject matter. I think I’d have a bit of difficulty there! It got me thinking, though, about the nature of drama. In a way, I think everybody’s everyday life is a drama of sorts. Every day brings new surprises. Admittedly, not much has happened to me over the past week, but I still couldn’t have predicted everything that has happened. Life’s like that. Shakespeare’s plays may have dealt with kings and nobles, but every living person plays a part in one great big unfolding drama, and it’s nice to think that every single individual has a tale his or her own to tell.
I wonder what’s going to happen next?
Indeed, we are the star of our own lives. 😉 Gosh, so that’s what bloggerdygook is about! My reality blog series! I’m a bloody star!!
