Bang.

Paolosgirl Sun 11-Oct-09 15:02:00

I thank you.

Paolosgirl Sun 11-Oct-09 15:03:08

Nope - too late. Have just been handed the ticket.

<sobs>

I bet you get to watch indoors ?

My 5 yr old ds is as we speak , organising a stunt show in the garden which I will have to go and ooh and aah over any minute hmm

happy days

I'm hiding under the table now - perhaps they'll forget about me

You need this thread Maybe we could form a support group.

Paolosgirl Sun 11-Oct-09 15:09:07

Yes, 'fortunately' it will be an indoor event. The living room is currently being adapted.

Their shows are always mucho fromage - it's hard not to laugh, so I end up biting furiously on my cheek and staring at the floor, willing the extravaganza to end.

LOL at that thread, Coco! Yes, a support group seems like a mighty good idea.

DS and his friend recently put on a show of a sequel to The Three Little Pigs in which the pigs and the wolf have become friends, but another pig doesn't realise that the wolf is now good so runs away and is killed by a bear. The pigs and the wolf then sing a song of their own composing about how the other pig is dead, followed for some reason by "Kung Fu Fighting" hmm and then "Mamma Mia" (at least, each of them was singing lines from "Mamma Mia" in a seemingly random order. Not the same random order, mind you)

How did you keep a straight face?!

DD and friend's show has now, thankfully, finished. It involved tunes from mobile phones, puppets (Bianca and Shelly), dinosaurs, time travel, and as with all of their shows, a moral tale of friendship (in this case, Jazzy Friends who used to be alone, but now they have each other and their friendship conquers all) and belonging. A few false starts, with much cheek gnawing, and then the blissful release when it ended.

I'm not entirely sure that I did keep a straight face. Is that bad? blush I know the fathers got told off for talking and the whole production was halted until they could be quiet.

I will come and watch the show in your place Paolosgirl, if you come to my house and watch the DVD of "The World Famous [sic] Dancing Diggers" with DS2.

These are 8 JCBs which drive around in what appears to be a random fashion, at times emitting coloured smoke from their exhaust pipes a la red arrows. Presumably being blissfully unaware that they are a) yellow, not red, b) not arrows and c) unable to fly - or indeed travel at more than 5mph - so that the smoke does not stream out behind them in an exciting fashion but billows around making them look as if they are on fire and driving around in a panic.

All this to what sounds like a porn movie soundtrack. Although there is no way I would know that of course wink.

Paolosgirl Sun 11-Oct-09 20:25:38

Now - that DVD is EXACTLY the kind of thing that would have DS2 (aged 2) swooning in delight. Where, oh where, can they be purchased?

Not that I'm looking for anything that is in any way a homage to the porn industry of course grin

DS2 is also two and was transfixed.

We have got this <gulp> triple DVD.

You can also see various versions on Youtube.I had to stop watching this one as they are doing it to the music from "Fame" - am still shaking with laughter

PumpkinsCantDanceTheTango Mon 12-Oct-09 09:34:17

I LOVE shows - all I have to do is sit on my bum and watch...however they do not seem to mind if I text at the same time. And I am not allowed to clap/comment until the whole thing is over so I can just switch off for 15 minutes grin
