Changing

Last night, I had a wonderful dinner at Cesar's with Ms. Bea.

Today, she is auditioning for MORTIFIED, "a showcase of people reading aloud their most embarrassing, REAL teenage diary entries, poems, love letters, lyrics and locker notes... in front of total strangers."

After reading through a few of Bea's very real, very wonderful and VERY funny diary entries from 1992, if the folks at MORTIFIED don't cast her, put her high on a pedestal, illuminate her in a spotlight with an amber gel and allow the world to realize just how amazing she is, they are complete and utter fools who probably think that Louie Armstrong was the first man on the moon!

Break a leg, Bea!

If you don't know Ms. Bea, this little moment from last night's dinner will tell you just how fabulous she truly is.

We were at a table, had finished our meals and were slurping down the last little drops of our jumbo margarita's when one of the waiters asked if we wouldn't mind finishing our drinks at the bar so they could turn the table.

Bea and I were ready to call it a night and were grabbing our bags when the waiter said...

"If you move to the bar, we'll buy each of you a free margarita."

In a mere nano- second, Bea jammed her knee into my leg...

...the subtext of that action being...

"Look fag, don't get all Southern and say, 'Oh, that's alright. We were just leaving.' Take him up on the free booze, nimrod!"

So, of course we did. And of course that second round was accompanied by straight shots of tequila.

Tequila: The Heroin of Alcohol.

I love me some Bea!

And what's the best way to show her I love her? By stealing her really cool ideas, of course!!!

You see, Bea has an alternate blog dedicated to her own promotion of her friends' plays and projects called Oh, My Talented Peeps!

And while I am not going to create a whole new blog like that, I am adding a couple of new sections to this blog. The inspiration for these new sections comes completely from Ms. Bea.

First, there's a section of links to projects that I'm currently involved in. Let's face it, this IS a blog about me, after all.

And then, there's a section of links to my friends' current projects. I have posted a couple already (The production of THE OLDEST PROFESSION that Alanda assistant directed and Max's upcoming cabaret show), but if ya'll have a something you would like me to post, send me the info and the site link and I'll do what I can to promote your gig.

And it can be anything, not just theatre. Singing gigs, poetry, performance art, which room you've reserved at Steamworks for Saturday night, ANYTHING.

Oh, and I added one more new section as well: An ever- changing picture of My New Imaginary Boyfriend.

My current selection - - Daniel Radcliffe. The production photos from his West End production of EQUUS have definitely turned me into a Harry Potter fan...

Oh, Harry...





Also...

...after looking at these "Horse & Harry Potter" pictures...

...I now possess a deeper admiration for Catherine the Great and her...

...ummm...

...equestrian passion.

You are and always have been my imaginary boyfriend.

And, now I could be wrong about this but, I think that Noel Coward guy might just be a gay!

Lance - I love that I'm your imaginary boyfriend!! Now, when are you going to propose to me? :)

And no, that Noel Coward guy isn't gay... he just likes the taste of them.

Bea - Then they are big fools. We live in a country where G.W gets elected - - TWICE!!! In that kind of world, how can we win?!?!?!

Sorry they haven't called. It only means something bigger and better for you is waiting around the corner.
