There's No Place Like Home
I have been Dorothy for Halloween more than any other character/costume. I worship Judy Garland so much, you'd think I was a middle-aged gay man. When I saw the Wizard of Oz RFL Sim created by my former coworkers the T1 Radio Rockers and designed by my friend Mr. Woodstock Burleigh...well, it was like I'd died and gone to MGM heaven!
Once upon a time, there was a woman living a mundane life on a Kansas farm. Simple tasks and a basic routine - day in and day out. Milking the cows, feeding the chickens, making the tedious one hour commute down the interstate to and from the office.
On April 21, 2006 she was suddenly swept away into a magical world...a world of intense colors and amazing things...and a whole lot of casinos, brothels and strip clubs.
" Where am I? What is...this place? How do I start?" Before she knew it, she had a fabulous set of red pumps and a long yellow road that stretched before her.
Along the road, she met the most *amazing* people...friends that helped her make her way.
"Poppies...poppies will put them to sleep..." And she slept, for a bit.
She came to a bustling place...exciting, glamorous. But the Wizard would not listen to her, not until she proved herself.
She found herself caught...trapped in the castle of the Witch. She was lost and confused. The monkeys screeched and laughed at her.
"Screw this!" She decided she was no longer the Witch's captive...melted her away and walked out the door.
There's no place like home!
