  Okay, I'm gonna give a summary of how my Fonda presentation went today, for those who are interest. ;D

  Now, last night I decided NOT to be Frank, because we didn't have the right clothing for any of his outfits really.  So my dad got me a gray wool (I think it was wool) overcoat/suit, and a clip-on tie (the real ties we had clashed so horribly with the jacket that my dad literally - I'm not joking - yelped in pain).  I put the finishing touches on my poster, and I was ready to go.

Evidentally people think I look cool in suits.  For I usually wear very bland clothes - any old sweatshirt (or T-shirt if it's summer) with jeans, and that's it.  I don't get very creative with my clothing.  ;)  Last month I was wearing a business suit for a "Spirit Day" got a boatloada complements.  Today I got some even stronger ones (plus I was wearing dress shoes too), and some which were rather vulgar, so I won't repeat them here.  ::)

Anywho, when I went to Drama class, I WAS THE ONLY PERSON IN THE WHOLE FRIGGIN' CLASS READY FOR MY PERFORMANCE!  I brought in my OUATITW DVD in because I had some pre-class dealings with the teacher - and my poster, for which I got more compliments - so obviously I went.  I tried Fonda's country accent, I did a good Fonda walk when I went up to the front of the class, and everyone loved it.  I think that they liked best my bit about my eyes (I have dark green eyes): "I'm probably best known for my bright blue eyes.  Now, obviously my eye color's changed somehow, but seein' as I've been dead for twenty-two years, you can suspend your disbelief a bit."  And I have to say it went rather well - especially during the "JESUS CHRIST!  IT'S HENRY FONDA!" part about OUATITW.  So after my Drama teacher got out the DVD player, it wouldn't work (a cable was missing) so she had to go get another TV, and I played the following scene:

Quote
Kermit: the whole dialog frank and mr. morton have about removing small obstacles from the track. "don't play the cripple with me mr. morton". would that be under 5 mins. ?

So, it went very well, not to sound redundant.  ;D

Anyway, thank you guys for your suggestions and help.  Don't think I didn't consider all of the scenes that you guys suggested; I went through some in-depth viewing processes the last couple of nights, so my decision was very well-thought out.  Kermit, if I could, I'd reward you some how.  How's $500 dollars sound?  ;D
