It was Friday. I love Fridays. I was sitting in my corner, behaving completely, just sitting with my hands folded neatly in my lap, a little smile across my lips. My eyes sparkled with the thrill of FRIDAY. It wasn’t a metaphoric sparkle, it was an actual bling eye sparkle from 2005. Knowing how annoying bling is, I quickly changed into duller, less sparkly eyes, got a coffee and some aspirin, and started focusing on regaining full consciousness. Because it was FRIDAY! Time for the Big Show! The highlight of my week, on the Big Stage in The Empire Room at Copperhead Road… Elysium Cabaret! My Darlings, my Beauties, my Handsomes! Gathering to share their creative genesis, visual expressions of music that inspired their imaginations to take journeys, journeys that they generously invited others to come along and enjoy the view of moments captured in microcosms of innovative adventure. This is Elysium Cabaret… adventures of imagination, bound by a love of music, shared with cherished guests. Thank you Choreographers for bringing your passion and giving us all a tour of your artistry. Thank you Dancers for your dedication. Thank you Paul and Morganna, Wiz, and DJ Gunner for tying the shows together so nicely. Let’s take a look at some pictures from the show.

A certain R.obot sat quietly on the sofa, sipping her MOONSHINE! We know what’s in that jug!! Okay, so it has a straw, but you can drink moonshine with a straw, right?
