This n that...

This post is random, but so am I sometimes!


It was 104 freekin' degrees in Houston today- a new record! With the heat index, the "feels like" temp was 108!!


Bear with me a bit as I rant again about PrideHouston and the Houston Pride Festival. I read an article where the brain trust from the Pride committee were raving about their FABULOUS festival, with a special "latino" area, a "tranny" section, a health and wellness area, and a place where you can buy food and beer. Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the point of this festival to bring everyone together? To put us all in one place so we can enjoy a sense of community, and learn more about each other? So WHY THE HELL would you create "sections" at a Pride festival?! And don't give them an "out" (pardon the accidental pun) by saying they are trying to make it easier to enjoy the festival by keeping similar attractions close together- the whole damn festival is only a block long!!! So, just to prove my point, I'm gonna hang my tranny ass out in the latino section all day. I'll show them!

We are getting ready for a "visit" at work. Now, for those of you non-retailers out there, "visits" are when a big whig comes in from the corporate offices to "review our business opporunities" and "see what we need from them to help drive sales." So, we work around the clock replacing light bulbs that have been burnt out for months, cleaning bathrooms with more than a bottle of windex, and putting every piece of merchandise in just the right place. So they can come in and say "What a lovely store! Great job! You don't need anything from us!"
Um, sir, a little payroll would be nice, so I don't have to work my executives around the clock to make this place look so good! Just sayin' !

Miss Ginger is really looking forward to the weekend!

It does seem to be counterproductive to section off different groups!

Hope you are staying cool. I do hate it when the smoke and mirrors squad goes into overdrive when there are going to be visitors.

if it was anything like the 'visit' we had to endure in march with the accreditation team breathing down our necks i can so feel your pain/annoyance/need for an adult beverage.

i hear you about the sectioning off- that's just ridiculous. it's a parade people, it doesnt take rocket sionce to figure out that people want to be free to mingle!

Honey, your preching to the choir here! I KNOW all about the "visits" We have had the last two big visits cancelled! And the Latino section may not be the worst section to hang in. You may even find a papi or two for summer lovin'! Have a real nice Pride Miss G! Wish I could hang with you down there. This girl is own her own for the weekend!

I was going to leave a comment but am still laughing hysterically about "Tranny without Borders" from our David! Too funny!

Have a good time and a successful visit.

My inlaws live in Arizona, and they have that heat too. I don't know how all those old people who retire over there survive! STay cool!! :) Julie

I agree with you about the Pride Festival. It should bring us together, not create separate sections for like people to hang out. You show 'em, Miss G!!

Hope the bigwig visit went well and you are having a happy and hot Pride weekend....

And what up with the whole sectioning... I am so scarred by having to organize a float for my old clinic - I know avoid Pride.

I know, lady Grinch..
