Last night I slept terrible but that is okay! Sometimes insomnia produces useful things. Last night produced several very ambitious concepts for photoshoots, a random text message to my sister, the expansion on an essay plan on my directorial concept for Porgy and Bess and, most exciting of all, a title for the current play I am writing.

I am a quarter of a way through my latest play which has previously been called 'Four Nights' because it takes place over four nights. (Yes, naming things is not my forte.) It is about sexual abuse within a family and who is to blame. Thanks to my insomnia, it is now called 'The Sleeping Dog Lies' which makes me happy on so many levels. a) Because we all know it is best to let a sleeping dog lie b) because one of the characters is called Wolf and constant references are made to him either being a predator or a guard dog according to whose side you take c) because the sleeping dog might lie or tell multiple lies. Gosh I am pleased with myself! That honestly took me an hour to come up with!

Just thought I'd share. A few of you here here have read the first draft of act one. Thoughts? And how awesome is my word play!?

A happy Fleur.

Oh and in other news, yep, still in plenty of pain and doped up on hardcore pain killers but I guess that isn't going to change any time soon, is it?

Good name: evocative, layered and is likely to put bums on seats.

Dealing with the pain mecomes easier. Do you have a pain management specialist?

Just my doctor and a physio at the moment. I may soon be looking to start a rehab course at a hospital but the current physio is new so I'm giving her a go for a while.

Glad you approve of the title.

On the camera - if you can't get rid of it in a month I may still be interested, but don't worry about holding it for me, life is being evil :(

I want to know about your ideas for photo shoots! Photos make Erin happy. If you ever need a willing model with like no limits, I'm a cripple so I'm always available...:D

No one else seems very interested so it will probably still be hanging around. :)

The shoot I thought was too optimistic but really got excited about was getting a few of the dancers from my course, getting them to strip down to knickers/boy knickers (gosh I love the word 'knickers'), covering them in flour and getting them to do some of the bizarre lifts we've been working on recently. The problem being that I doubt any of the girls who would suit it would be up for that level of nudity and the boy who I'd would love shot isn't a massive fan of photos. They need to be really pale people you see so that I can make them look amazingly white. Once again, I've created an idea which really is most suited to me modeling and getting a Welshman drunk: I just keep doing that!

Thankyou very much for the offer. I shall bear that in mind! :)

Haha, I need more on mine. I didn't manage to get home last night after an absolutely exhausting day so I didn't have my medication. I will be no fun very, VERY soon.

Haha, why thankyou. And I figured out how to end it too! But I can't tell you because then you'll know what happens. :P
