thoughts and feels and thoughts and feels [userpic]

I'm wearing my Sweeney Todd shirt.

I was going to layer it under the Hayride shirt, but when I put it on this morning, I thought ... I haven't worn this shirt for along time. For that matter, I don't know if I've *ever* worn it with jeans - I don't think I even owned any jeans while I was at East (I think I was still in my "ALL JEANS MUST SUCK!" phase.)

I drew thought and life and inspiration from that show, from that experience, for years. But now, other than the fact that I am dimly aware that I have on something that qualifies as a 'new outfit' - ... I don't know - it's just a shirt. I don't think that part of me is gone, but it's gone far enough that I can't remember it just by putting on a shirt - I *haven't* worn the shirt for long enough that wearing it brings back an entire way of being. It's too far removed.

Though I am feeling oddly compelled to put on black tights and my gray skirt. And probably blue sneakers. Huh.

Wasn't that the deadly barber?

Or was Sweeny Todd the one who made meat pies? Or... both? Musical, innit? Sigh, questions, questions. Usually, I get a compulsion, I figure it's easier to just give in - though I don't generally don't get skirt compulsions. Mine are mostly for curries.

Re: Wasn't that the deadly barber?

Sweeney was the barber. Mrs. Lovett made the pies.

In the Sondheim version, anyway - it's different in the one of the older musicals (and probably different still in Christopher Bond), and I've never found a source for the original tale (such as it may have been.)
