In Which I Go Gaga over Gaga
Olive Tree is lying on her floor taking portrait shots of her fish. (Hey, I was bored, all right? And he's a very patient model.) The doorbell rings and there stands my friend Milo's Lane, still in her soccer uniform.
ML: "Wanna go see Lady Gaga?"
OT: "Can I bring my camera?" (My default response to any invitation.)
OT's mom (on phone): "Sure honey." (goes back to phone)
ML: "Hurry, she's starting soon!"
(Both rush out)
Lady Gaga was speaking in protest about the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy. Aha! This I had heard of — posters were splattered throughout my school asking for participants in the rally. Apparently Gaga saw the posters too, because there she was in funky glasses, comparing equality to prime rib. (See here.)
Now, I may be Christian, but I am also a gay rights supporter. (No, I am not gay/bi. I'm just a firm believer in equality. I realize that y'all may have different opinions, and I respect that... please also respect mine. Thanks.) I was screaming along with everyone else.
ML let me sit on her shoulders. Good strong girl, she is — pure muscle from soccer. Of course, I don't weigh much, but still. I couldn't lift someone onto my shoulders, that's for sure! Give this girl a round of applause!
Lady Gaga made some very good points (I'm sure YouTube will turn up some goodies, just give it an hour or two for people to get home and upload videos from their phones), and surprisingly was in a relatively normal outfit. Hey, I would wear that!
And now, I present to you: Olive Tree Tries Her Hand At Being the Paparazzi!
(Well I think I make very good paparazzi. Especially when ML is so readily available to climb on.
Well! How exciting, and unexpected! A lovely end to a rather ho-hum day.
Have a nice night, lovely readers!
