Taren: Hmm. Where would this look best? We don't want to walk into them. Rather low ceiling. This is going to be interesting. I can make it work.
From the side: Hey! Sorry I'm late. Just getting used to being able to move. This is so much better.
Taren (turning her head): Well, at least some help has arrived.
Taren: I'm Taren. Hello. I'm glad you're here. We need to start getting set up. Lots to do.
Song: So I see. So where are we?
Song: Hmmm.... Well, I know we are going to wear white, but that's only once the scene is ready. For now we are decorating, so it really doesn't matter. Besides, this outfit is pretty cool.
Taren: You look like you're ready to go fight someone for the chance to have some food. Or better yet, you look ready to take out someone who's been oppressing people.
Song: Really? Well, I still think I look good and this is comfortable enough to work in. Besides, I hear the designer is still working on the clothes we're going to wear, so we'll have to wait anyway. So back to what we're supposed to do.
Another voice from the side: Hi! I'm so excited to be here. I'm happy to help all I can.
Taren: Hi. What's your name?
Waverly: Hi! I'm Waverly and I love it here! This is going to be great!
Song: Yes, this should be fun.
Waverly: I heard there were four volunteer spots for the Christmas set up this year and only the ladies without written, active lives could participate.
Taren: Yes, and that means lots of camera time for us. So maybe that will mean we'll become overnight successes and the viewers will demand to see us more often. Which means we'll be assigned something quicker than we expected. That's why I'm here.
Taren: If you say so, but I see nothing wrong with being dressed appropriately, even just for the set up.
Song: Uhuh. If you say so. I'm going to have a seat while we figure out what to do.
Waverly (looking and walking toward the other side of the room): Wow! Now that is so pretty.
Waverly: But this one is pretty.
Taren: I guess I must continue to remind everyone, the theme color is white, with some silver for beautiful accents and maybe a touch of black like the sign on the wall. We have to do a good job on this. Always keep in mind, camera time, future lives. We have to make an impression!
Yet another voice from the side, but this time a masculine one.
Voice: Hi, Ladies! Just act like I'm not here. I'm going to get this stuff on video.
Dallas: I'm Dallas. I'm going to be the official videographer for this Christmas scene.
Taren: Well, that is unfortunate, Dallas, because this is for a blog and while I say this with all due respect, Miss Jaye has no idea how to make a video. So she is going with still photos.Waverly: Hi, Dallas! I think videotaping would be so nice. I'm willing to do whatever we are supposed to, but I have to agree, I also heard it was still shots. Which I like too. They are so nice to put in a book.
Dallas: Darn! I was hoping this would get me a videographer job. I'm tired of watching from the sidelines and thought I'd take control of my own destiny. You know, just like the rest of you want, a life and screen time.
Song: No matter what you use to capture us, I'm sure we'll look good. But according to the plan design, I do think it's for a camera. Do you have a camera?
Dallas: As a matter of fact, I do.
Dallas walks out for a minute and comes right back.
Well, I guess we'll have to wait and see. Will the proper tree arrive? Will the ladies get their theme appropriate clothes? Will Dallas be able to get his career started with a camera instead of a camcorder? When will number four arrive?
Thanks for stopping by. ~ Jaye
