Something I meant to blog

Before we decided on doing a 'Gilligan's Island' theme for Halloween, we had discussed doing 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs' (hey, that's how Disney spells it). I had suggested updating for the new millennium, although it didn't fly, but I wanted to put it here for future reference. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you...

Snow White and the Seven Dwarves in the 21st Century

Grumpy is undergoing court-ordered anger management classes.
Bashful is on Paxil for his social anxiety. This has allowed him to become quite a party boy down at the gay bar.
Sneezy is on Allegra and doing quite well.
Happy is considering bariatric surgery, but at least no one had to put him on Prozac.
Sleepy now sleeps with a CPAP machine for his sleep apnea and installed lights in the mine and is quite the energetic dynamo.
Doc is getting rich on all the ailments of his brethren.
Dopey, despite his name, has avoided drugs and is working in a school for deaf children where his muteness is not a problem and he can really make a difference. He does, sometimes, however, dream of running away and joining a rock band as a guitarist and is considering getting a tatoo.
Snow White is a goth chick who runs away from home to get away from an abusive stepmother.
Prince Charming is a motorcycle dude with a leather jacket who arrives to take her away off into the sunset.
