The Hobbit

I tried to think up a clever title for the post, but...I'm tired!

Mark and I are in the cast of The Hobbit at Oregon City High School, and rehearsals are a little long.

Not complaining - it's fun! But I don't have much energy for blog posts this week.

Be sure to click here to see a video with shots from a rehearsal. You can see Mark a couple of times in the video.

Yesterday we learned to grow elf ears. Mark is a "good elf" (hangs out with Elrond, who helps the Dwarves and Bilbo Baggins), and I am a "bad elf" (servant to the Elf Queen, who captures the Dwarves and throws them in the dungeon...until Bilbo figures out how to rescue them!

 I'll post a photo with my full costume next week.

Mark's ears are grown...he's assisting another elf.

That sounds like so much fun! I'm excited for you guys!

I always thought of you as a bit of an elf, so seeing you with the ears doesn't seem like much of a stretch to me.

Haha. I didn't notice at first that you were wearing the elf ears. They look so natural!
