Bailey + Boq...sitting in a tree...
Did I really never mention the boys' first Rent experience in here? Sheesh! This is what happens when you can't sleep and start looking through your blog archives. Well, at least I know what my next entry will be about. I had something else on my mind when I logged in though, so Iím going to stick with that topic.
The boys just wrote (well, dictated to me and I typed because they each had 4 letters they wanted to write and there was no way I was sitting there handwriting 8 letters) to some of the Wicked cast. I have an enormous envelope that we will be sending to the Pantages Theatre tomorrow. Their letters were cute and funny (Jared wrote I love u on the bottom of every one, bless his sweet little heart), but the pictures that went with them were hilarious! By far my favorite is Bailey's picture to Adam Wylie (Boq). Why? Well, it might have something to do with the large "Bailey + Boq" written at the top of the page. He originally drew himself holding hands with Boq. But, Ryan and I laughed (C'mon, you wouldn't?!? We'd just finished discussing how we think the real reason that Boq never fell for Nessa is because he is gay, but so in the closet that he hasnít even admitted it to himself. That also explains why he gave his heart to Galinda who was never going to give hers in return. But, I digress...). So, instead, Bailey colored himself pink and labeled the picture "Boq and Galinda holding hands." Of course, he didnít change the headline at the top of the page, so now the whole thing is strangely disconnected, and that just makes me laugh even harder! I tried to take a photo of it, but of course the camera batteries are dead. Iím almost tempted to include a note in with the letterÖsomething like, ďDear Adam, Would you kindly take a digital photo of this exquisite piece of artwork and email it to me?Ē I can only hope that he appreciates it as much as I do.
I have been laughing at that all night. Well, that and a good tidbit I unearthed on MySpace while I was avoiding studying...a profile that had me laughing off and on for a couple of hours. The genius who created the profile didn't list anything under the orientation category, but then further down he felt the need to share this interesting piece of news...
Seriously? Gay is an occupation? Will there be a movement to add gay as a college major next? I mean, if it's going to be an occupation, shouldn't there be some formal training? Or, maybe you donít need a Bachelorís Degree in gay (Or is it gayness? I guess it could be gay-studies?). What would the course load be? Can you also earn a minor in gay? Perhaps someone will create one of those special job-training colleges, like they have for computer programming and medical billing. Oh, I can just see the TV commercials now! If I get bored of teaching can I change my career to gay? What exactly would an entry-level position entail? How quickly would I be able to advance in my career? Is there job security in becoming gay? Do I need experience before I apply, or is on-the-job training provided?
Silly me, all these years I just blindly believed that you were born with a particular sexual orientation. I honestly never realized that it was, in fact, a career choice.past | future
