Vanity... [Jan. 30th, 2004|12:54 am]
And now, for something completely different:
[Mood of the Hour |thoughtfulthoughtful]

No, I'm not talking about one of the seven deadly sins...I'm speaking of probably my favorite of the Palace Girls.

This evening, I went to the bar to sing for the first karaoke night. Heath came in shortly after I did, and I thought to myself, that it was rather strange seeing him out of drag. By the way, since I know there are readers of my journal that aren't from Lawton, Heath and Vanity are one in the same. Heath is a very handsome man. He's a very beuatiful woman, as well. When Vanity performs, she puts all of her energy and emotion into her performing. She never performs without giving it her all. Two Sunday nights ago, she performed and just about made me cry. She's a very good friend. I don't think she realizes the place that she holds in my heart. Oh, and it's most likely that she won't read this either. I just felt like getting these feelings out there.

So, there you have it. A journal entry with no questions, no problems, just a little praise for a very good friend.

Take care, all.

Miss Gay Oklahoma [Jan. 29th, 2004|02:57 pm]
And now, for something completely different:
[Mood of the Hour |curiouscurious]
[Music in my Mind |Opening fanfare for Miss Gay Oklahoma!!]

I had a longish talk with Tillie last night about apprentice judging for Miss Lawton. She also told me how I can apprentice judge for another preliminary and possibly be able to be a judge for other prelimnaries prior to Miss Oklahoma this year.

We alked about Miss Oklahoma last year, and the fiasco that followed. But, she asked me who I thought should've won. I told her that at all of the Miss Gay Oklahoma (MGO) pageants that I'd been to, by the final night, I pretty much knew how things were going to turn out. But, at last year's MGO pageant, I had no idea. She asked about the first runner up, I forget her name. "What did you think of her talent?" I told her, that she performed it well, her costuming was great, and her choreography was outstanding...but, "it didn't do anything for me". She said, "Great! That's the idea. And, that's exactly what you should say."

It seems that every contestant starts out with 750 points and it's the job of the judges to deduct points, where they see fit. But, for every point that you deduct, you have to have an explanation for deducting them. That's where the credability of the judge comes into play.

So, there was a small lull into the conversation, and I said, "How much does polotics come into play?" She said, "I would hope it wouldn't come into play, but judges are only human. Think about this: There are two contestants and they both give A performances. Who do you pick for the A+?" I said, "Oh, I see." And she said, "No. WHO DO YOU PICK?" I said, "I don't know." She said, "There's always going to be a little bit of internal polotics going on. In this instance, you're most likely going to pick the person who either you know better, or like better, or whatever."

Even after this short conversation, I don't think I'll ever look at pageants the same. I'm looking forward to this year's pageant season. And, next year, when I compete, I'll have that extra little edge. And, I'll blow their socks, er, um hose off! Mwah, Ha, Ha, Ha!!!!

At the behest of Miss Tillie, I printed out the Category Descriptions from the MGO website. Anyone who thinks they know about the pageant, should go take a look. I thought that I knew, too. I had no idea.


That's all for now,
Take care,
Jim

And now, for something completely different:
Angel
You are one of the few out there whose wings are
truly ANGELIC. Selfless, powerful, and
divine, you are one blessed with a certain
cosmic grace. You are unequalled in
peacefulness, love, and beauty. As a Being of
Light your wings are massive and a soft white
or silver. Countless feathers grace them and
radiate the light within you for all the world
to see. You are a defender, protector, and
caretaker. Comforter of the weak and forgiver
of the wrong, chances are you are taken
advantage of once in awhile, maybe quite often.
But your innocence and wisdom sees the good in
everyone and so this mistreatment does not make
you colder. Merciful to the extreme, you will
try to help misguided souls find themselves and
peace. However not all Angelics allow
themselves to be gotten the better of - the
Seraphim for example will be driven to fighting
for the sake of Justice and protection of those
less powerful. Congratulations - and don't ever
change - the world needs more people like you.

Random thoughts... [Jan. 27th, 2004|01:59 pm]
And now, for something completely different:
[Mood of the Hour |bitchybitchy]

Last night I had more sexual dreams than I've had in a long time. Most of my closer friends will wonder, "Who was it THIS time??" They've been all over the board as of late. First there was Mike (that really screwed me up for a while), then there was Christopher (and you already know how that one made me feel), but this last one,...well, it was nice, but I wonder why he's back in my dreams. I still care about him, but ... but, nothing. Nothing is going to happen. I won't let it happen, not again. I can't allow myself to even consider it. But, it was nice. Very nice.


Talked to Mom last night. She said that Jan played for Baptist Men's day. She was pretty upset with Richard for not "getting over his homophobia" and asking me to play for the service. I told her that it wasn't worth getting upset over. "His loss." Then, she blew me away, yet again by saying, "He's going to be pretty upset when he gets to heaven and all those gay people are there." I just love my mom. She's great.


I've decided not to compete in the Miss Gay Oklahoma Preliminaries this year. I'm going to try to judge instead. I talked to Tillie and apprenticing this year at Miss Gay Lawton. Maybe I'll compete next year. I'm hoping that judging a year will help me compete better in future years. I really have no desire to be Miss Gay Oklahoma. But, it would be fun to participate in the preliminaries and experience Miss Oklahoma from the inside, instead of just watching from the outside. I'm just not as into it as the other performers from Lawton. It's fun. That's it. Nothing more, nothing less.


The Day of the Damned (Valentine's) is coming up. I, of course, will wear a black band around my arm and curse St. Valentine for even having a day. I might even take the day off and not even get out of bed. I might see if okieopus wants to have dinner and curse the day with me.


In other news, Greg and Jim are supposed to be back in town today. They're the ones that got me the job at the Baymont. I'd really like to sit down with them and let them know what's going on at the hotel. But, I'm sure that's not why they hired me. I haven't ranted about the Baymont yet. But, I will tell you that the second day I was there, I called the Best Western and told them that if they could find anything for me to do over there, I'd leave the Baymont and never look back. I mean, when the General Manager tells me that she's worked in the hotel industry for years and has never liked it, and wants to do anything else, how can I help but think, "What the hell are you doing as a General Manager of a hotel??" But, that's a rant for another entry.


I guess that's enough random thoughts for right now. Just wanted to update a little and let everyone know that I'm still alive.

Take care, all.

Why are Books Banned?? [Jan. 26th, 2004|01:03 am]
And now, for something completely different:
[Mood of the Hour |irateirate]

I don't understand how certain books can be bannded, much less why. The idea of banning a book in the first place, seems unbelievable to me. I mean, aren't books meant to be expressions of the author or authors? And, lest we forget, this is the United States of America, where people have died for the freedom of speech that we hold so dear. Why then, are there any banned books at all??

It seems that there is a list of 100 Banned Books. Here is a list of the ones that I have readCollapse )

Take care, all. And, happy reading!!
Jim
