Professional Masquerading and Avuncular Porn Stars: Tuesday 8th February

After being told that I looked like Freddie Mercury for the fifth time this morning, I realized that it probably wasn’t a compliment. Neither, I suspect, was the small shriek let out by one of my classmates as she noticed my upper lip for the first time. After her initial outburst she asked if I had grown it for a reason, and from the ensuing explanation I fear that I may have given her the impression that I am a professional actor; no idea how that could have happened.

Ever wondered what a cross between Vince Cable and Quentin Crisp would look like? Well know you know.

At this evening’s ‘Picasso’ rehearsal we had our photos taken for the programme and website, as well as trying on possible outfits. To say that I look like an avuncular 1970s porn star would not be doing me or Einstein justice.
