Friday Red Mr. Peanut Bank and Gallito Mescalito Blogging

As you recall, last week the Dance Party Players asked Red Mr. Peanut Bank to help them put on a Christmas Pageant. Our story continues.....

Red Mr. Peanut Bank I love to walk the neighborhood and see all the nacimientos on display. Yikes! That reminds me! I wonder how the Dance Party Christmas Pageant is coming along?

Bunrab, the Filthiest Toy in the House Hmmm... Και ποιμενες ησαν εν χωρα τη . . .

Red Mr. Peanut Bank Wow! That's some funny writing. What's going on here?

Bunrab, the Filthiest Toy in the House Hello, Red Mr. Peanut Bank! How are you?
Red Mr. Peanut Bank Fine, thanks. And you? And what are these books?
Bunrab, the Filthiest Toy in the House I'm fine. I'm exploring the ancient texts to write the script for the Christmas Pageant.
Red Mr. Peanut Bank How's it coming along?
Bunrab, the Filthiest Toy in the House Well, My Hebrew is terrible but my Greek is okay, so I think I'll have it ready by rehearsal. Have you decided who will play the Baby Jesus?
Red Mr. Peanut Bank No, not yet. Well, I think I'll leave you alone to work.

Red Mr. Peanut Bank Buenas tardes.
Wooden Kuna Doll Buenas tardes, Señor Mani Rojo.
Miss Egyptian Hippo of Love Buenas tardes, Red Mr. Peanut Bank. We're studying this icon of the Blessed Virgin and the Holy Child. As you know, we both want to play the BVM in the pageant. Have you made a decision on the part yet?
Red Mr. Peanut Bank Well, no. I hope you will both audition tomorrow.
Wooden Kuna Doll ¡Sí, Señor!
Miss Egyptian Hippo of Love You know we'll be there. Hey, who's going to play the Baby Jesus? The only one around here who looks like the Baby Jesus in that icon is that red Telly Tubbie!
Red Mr. Peanut Bank I don't know. Well, good to see you both!
Wooden Kuna Doll Adios, Señor Mani Rojo.
Miss Egyptian Hippo of Love Ciao, babe!

Red Mr. Peanut Bank Hi fellas. What's going on here?
El Penguino Oh, hello, Red Mr. Peanut Bank! These guys are all deciding who will be a cow and who will be a sheep.
Red Mr. Peanut Bank Who will be what?
El Penguino They've decided they'll arm wrestle. Looser is a cow. Or donkey.
Red Mr. Peanut Bank Well, not that this isn't interesting, but I must run!
Gallito Mescalito ¿Shriek?
Red Mr. Peanut Bank No, I don't know who will play the Baby Jesus yet. Maybe Poh.
Gallito Mescalito ¡SHRIEK!

El PenguinoThis is terrible. I think I'll go help the angels.

Red Mr. Peanut Bank Santa! What are YOU doing here? Shouldn't you be at the North Pole, or at least at the Mall?
Santa Well, since you won't let me play Joseph in the Christmas Pageant, I offered my help in making costumes. Plus, the elves have it under control at the North Pole, except for those Episcopal Elves who spend all their time doing that Terrible Version of the Macarena! Look at all this fabric!
Red Mr. Peanut Bank Do you know what you're doing?

Santa Of course I do. Who the heck do you think made all those cute outfits for the elves? I've got a machine, I've got fabric, I've got a tape, and these costumes will be FABULOUS!!!
Red Mr. Peanut Bank, off camera Okay. If you can't trust Santa, who can you trust?

Mr. Chompy's Chewed-up Squeaky Kitty Toy Mistah Santa, sir. Dis sleeve is way too big!
Santa It's not done yet, silly! We just need to take it in a bit!
Mr. Chompy's Chewed-up Squeaky Kitty Toy But did da shepahds really weah dis color?
Gallito Mescalito Shriek! SHRIEEK!!
Santa What are you talking about, you silly rooster! You are a Vision in that fluffy cotton! Look, Kitty, you will be the most handsome Shepherd ever to hold a crook, and Rooster, you will be the cutest, fluffiest, and most lovable little lamb ever to see the Baby Jesus!
Mr. Chompy's Chewed-up Squeaky Kitty Toy Say, who's gonna be da Baby Jeezus anyway?
Santa How would I know? But I'll bet it will be the sweetest little baby Jesus ever seen since the original!! Maybe it will be Poh!
Gallito Mescalito ¡SHRIEK!

Red Mr. Peanut Bank El Penguino, what is going on here?
Dipsy Woah! WOAH!
El Penguino Well, I thought I do some wire work with the angels
La-la, Poh, and Tinky Winky Dipsy fly! Dipsy fly!
El Penguino So, did you pick a Baby Jesus yet?
Red Mr. Peanut Bank No, not yet. I don't know, this looks somewhat dangerous!
Dipsy Woah! WOOAAOOH!
La-la, Poh, and Tinky Winky Dipsy fly! Dipsy fly!
El Penguino Nah, don't worry. Everything will be fine!!

Gallito Mescalito ¡SHRIEK!

Bunrab, the Filthiest Toy in the House Hey! I'm trying to write here! You little green weirdo!!

El Penguino I'm tired. I think I'll climb in this bed and take a nap. Plus, it looks like a good place to hide. Yawn. I wonder who will play the Baby Jesus? Yawn

El Penguino Snnnnnnoooooorrrrrrrre

Wow, we are finally getting to see the unexpected depths of Bunrab, the Filthiest Toy in the House. Greek, yet!

The suspense is building. Can't wait for next episode.

I'm getting hauled into the excitement's so multi-leveled! Imagine the cleverness of selecting, creating, imagining, scripting, dressing/costuming, blocking, producing, directing and NOT EVEN BEING involved in this not-so-fantasy-fantasy (accept sometimes a close-up of a hand)? I'm enthralled, I'll never be able to climb back into the box ("soap" is my favorite) after the line (that almost caused me to die of laughing convulsions right here under the volcano without taking of drink of alcohol for 29 years...yesterday):

"Señor Mani Rojo"

Of course there was much much more to convulse about and even though I'm a tough audience and there was plenty tonight...cha,cha,cha...and then, fill-up...the sweet ending btw...yes, I love it, penguino is perfecto...good thing he's a El...that was smart advance planning (don't ever try and kid a kidder or whatever)!

Belovedish Padre,

I await your presentation/explanation and illustration and purification of the Archbishop of Can't-hurt-yet-burries Advent Litter!

I vote this mission move NORTE! Let's all meet up in San Joaquin and get things organized! (just between the two of us I think I can handle the former Schofield just fine...he doesn't know unpleasant)!

Ooooh look at little Peguino asleep in the hay....

Paul said...

El penguino es tan amable durmiendo en el pesebre. And Bunrab has so impressed me, reading about shepherds in Greek. ¿Who knew?

Hoppswell rightly notices and admires the complexities and challenges of launching a dramatic production. I do not envy Señor Mani Rojo's dilemma of picking a virgin, a challenge with so many layers of potential meaning and mishap.

We all await the dénouement with bated breath.

So Santa has two beards.., the one on his face, obv, and Mrs. Santa!!!!!

Oh, this is not going to go well in Nigeria!

Is it too late?

Paul has *reveved up* my interest in the Leading Lady/Virgin roll/role/sole...I would like to submit myself to be "screen tested" name is Helania Supplefield Snidley Homspundundel-Hernandez Fia and I'm a over stuffed, yet purely handmade, rag doll (with a checkered skirt/past)...I live just North of one Volcano, directly under another and South of the third. You can call me Torch Spong Trilogy for short.

When are the "trying" outs?

Mil Gracias

susan s. said...

Oh, Mickey, the lovely Helania sounds too, too perfect for the role of the Virgin! I recommend her! You can't go wrong with Torch Spong Trilogy!

Paul said...

Are we inviting Peter Abuja to the production? I think it would do wonders for his soul at this hectic time of year to see the piety of the people enacted so beautifully.

Also the bishops of the really, really true church (whose name is too long for me to type) could set him, err, straight.

Matty Boy is quicker than I. Wicked humor.

I may have revved up Helania but I ain't goin' nowhere near the tryouts. Have fun Mr. Red Peanut Bank!

Imagine, revved has two v' immediately following the other.

More revelations have come to me (and I'm expecting many, many more although I never project, just expect and often get, get,get what I, me, me, comes with my pedigree).

Alongside my work in "Torch Spong Trilogy" I also did "Dark At The Top Of The Iker"...I have a few other starring and feature credits (also recent cameos on Anglican TV doing a 1/2 size ad/stand-in for beautifying a "hate campaign" while David Schofield was lunching *on* the Anglican "Lot") rolls/roles in my portfolio...but, blink blink, I feel I've established my flexibility as a artista de teatro with many CLEAR credentials as to play your Virgin Mary without trying to get Señor Mani Rojo's hopes up (even though I've been a voluptous soltera for years, I refuse to divert his attention away from the casting...couch).

I remain poised to react (to most anything),

Oh my! What suspense! How will I wait until next Friday?

I don't know. On second thought, this seems to be somewhat disorganized. Will this all really work out in the end? I hope so.

I See You!
