Pre-order Bananarama

The work we done was hard, at night we'd sleep 'cause we was tired.

Any of you who get that reference are meant to be my friend forever.

Today I had the pleasure of:

1) Getting up at the asscrack of dawn to read for class.
2) Taking Ming Vauze, Honda of Destiny, in to have $200 worth of unplanned exhaust work done.
3) Reading civil procedures cases that are making my brain bleed.
4) Getting outed at school as the elderly gay guy (that's a story I'll tell some other time...basically, someone thought I was around their age, and could hardly contain their horror that I'm 33!).

Yeah, I'm in a mood.

Okay was the outing about being gay or being 33? You are still very young. Old is after 40. Did someone have a crush on you? Hmn???

Okay, here's what happened. I was sitting having lunch with this sassy gal from one of my classes and a couple of other folks. Somehow where I live came up, and I said my partner and I have a house in (particular neighborhood in The Ville). She said, "Great! How long have you guys been together?" I said going on six years. She paused and said, "Really? How old are you?" I said 33. She was all, "33?!" Then she started backtracking, "Not that that's old, I just thought you were 26." So I supposedly look younger than I am, but the age I am, at least to these folks is REALLY old!

I wasn't outed about the gay thing. I just automatically assume people know...it makes my life much less stressful I find. But I am the old gay guy now, I'm sure.

That line would be from "Coal Miner's Daughter" by Loretta Lynn. I may pass as fairly urban after years of hardwork and education, but I do have an odd ability to recall info about Kentucky-born celebrities....and I live in Nashville.

Well, it sounds like someone needs to come up with his own Pissed List!

Christopher, here in Bay Area, California I have to keep my love of country music somewhat in the closet, although I did get my partner to buy me that Time-Life country collection that the "new and improved" Kenny Rogers hawks on infomercials. The mix CD I've been listening to lately (yes, I'm still a pre-iPod dinosaur) includes Loretta and Conway singing "Louisiana Woman, Mississippi Man," Tanya Tucker's "Delta Dawn," and Ronnie Milsap's "Pure Love." The ring tone on my cell is George and Tammy's "Golden Ring." Just goes to prove that you can take the boy out of the country (and dress him in Hugo Boss...) but you just can't take the country out of the boy!

So that is good! You look young and probably behave young. That is very good. Study hard. I need a good lawyer.

CES! OLD IS OVER 40!!!!!!!Yikes! I wondered why that undertaker with the tape measure was following me around!

Christopher said...

Ces, I don't behave young...not most of the time anyway (apart from a period in my mid-20s when I went insane). I was like a middle-aged 12-year-old.

Papa, are you sure he isn't just cruising you? ;-)

Christopher said...

Jonboysf, I am not a country music fan, though I do have a soft spot for the big-haired old ladies of country. Those women knew what pain was about, and are more like blues singers with southern accents IMHO.

And finally, Dr. Chad, it is little wonder that we have been friends for somewhere in the neighborhood of 17 years. You are the Conway to my Loretta.
