mama prior

10.22.17

today I have a bunch of things planned and I’m trying to get in gear to do it. I still have Childhood Besties bday party with her parents and her new bf, and then going to Bestie’s house to have her mom help me finish my cloak (with detachable hood) yassss.

I felt horrible, because I asked Bestie if her mom would be up for helping me alter a short 1960s fur trimmed coat into a cape. She said it would be fine, then drops the bombshell her mom had a concussion back in June, and she’s still getting better (!?!?!?!) so of course, the entire time I’m fretting, because Bestie’s mom has one of those industrial machines that will take off fingers if you aren’t careful. I was worried about going downstairs to use the bathroom or get water, because I didn’t want Mama to get hurt =///  (Bestie was working and working out, and doing her homework, so that’s why she wasn’t in this picture). Mama used this little machine instead, but still, Mama would be really good, forget a word in english (not too out of the ordinary, but it’s words she knows in both Spanish and English), and forget what piece we were working on. Not.. horrible, but around 9;30, I started getting exhausted (lack of sleep among other things). I asked Mama if she wanted to stop, and I asked a few times, because she is still healing.

Mama said no. We worked for about another hour, (I kept making stupid hand stitching mistakes), and then I went home. Mama was energetic and vibrant. She told me this is the best she’s felt in a long time. This project is helping her heal, but I’m still worried I’m going to overwork her. Today we’ll finish the lining, add buttons to the hood, button holes on the cloak itself, add a clasp, and it’s done.

I’m deep in this LARP game man. Mama was happy to chat about everything, and show me some sewing tricks, which will help me when I do more stitching. <3 I’m glad she said yes, and then pressured me into staying so she could try. Lol. She still has it, it’s just healing slowly.

  Happy belated Birthday to Iconic Legend the one and only Mrs Diahann Carroll. A singer. Broadway stage, film, television actress, she has conquered them ALL. I had the lovely pleasure of spending the evening with her a few years back, when she was on tour promoting her book ‘The Legs Are The Last Thing To Go’ it was one of the highlights of my life. Diahann Carroll was born July 17, 1935. She has had a long, successful career that has spanned nearly six decades. After appearing in some of the earliest major studio films to feature black casts such as Carmen Jones (1954) and Porgy and Bess (1959) and on Broadway in 1962 Tony Award for Best Actress – No Strings, she starred in Julia (1968), one of the first series on American television to star a black woman in a non-stereotypical role. Next she tackled the role of 'Claudine’ trying to stay one step ahead of Mr Welfare man with James Earl Jones, which garnered her an Academy Award nomination. On to her next project was Sister, Sister with Irene Cara and the late actress Rosaland Cash. Later she created the role of Dominique Deveraux televisions first black b*tch on the prime time soap opera, Dynasty. Having to knock down doors became the way of life for Ms. Carroll, on Broadway she played the role of Agnes in 'Agnes of God’ and Nora Desmond in Sunset Blvd, two roles that were typically cast for a Caucasian. Those are just some of the highlights of her illustrious career. 

Today many up and coming African American actresses are able to get work in television/film because of Carroll’s groundbreaking work. She is the recipient of numerous stage and screen awards and nominations. Carroll has been married four times and became the mother of a daughter in 1960. She is a breast cancer survivor and activist. Diahann Carroll was scheduled to return to the Broadway stage in the 2014 revival of A Raisin in the Sun as Mama, but withdrew prior to opening. Ms. Carroll is true Hollywood Royalty!

The nerves got the better of him, and D.O stuttered and forgot his lines. This quote can be seen as proof of how far EXO has come as both a group and as individuals.)
