Here I am backstage, hamming it up with my fellow performers at the "Dueling Divas" fundraiser for the community theatre last night. The event was a smash and I raised lots of money (sincere thanks to dear readers who "voted" for me - your donations are 100% tax deductible), despite a crippling case of laryngitis that rendered me voiceless. I did manage to take the stage for the group numbers - doing my best Milli Vanilli shtick - but the frozen pipes would not allow my solos. In the end, it might have been a blessing in disguise. The other divas were so seriously fabulous, I was never even a contender. Oh well, that's showbiz!
