Damn, that spelling just doesn't LOOK right in the title. Oh well. I apparently spelled it wrong in the caption. Made the caption as a real quickie, based on the visual of the picture. Pretty much just what I call a "rimshot" caption. Believe it or not, I think the eyes are really what makes this caption, as it tends to reinforce the plot line.
Some not-very-deep TG thoughts I've had over the past week
(1) I made this comment in a posting about a certain picture, and as to where it came from. The answer was already stated (Hannah Montana) and I thought my reply should be restated here, knowing that it is entirely possible that I stole the idea from someone else. I made a hypothetical discussion of the show between my daughter and I.
"So Sweetie, the idea of Hannah Montana is that everyone has 2 selves, one they show to the world, and one they keep hidden just for certain people. However, the show got it really mixed up. In general, its the hidden side of them that tends to dress up in wigs, sequins, lots of makeup and perform for strangers in clubs and bars. But that is a story for another time. Sleep well honey!"(2) As part of the weekend "festivities" I went to a Renne Faire. I thought it sucked, but there were a few people there in drag. I didn't get to see the guys dressed in women's garb (the GF said I had missed them) but I did get to see a drag king, dressed up like a pirate. She did a good job, though the giveaway was that that beard just sort of ended about an inch before the hair line upwards, and the beard was WAY too uniform in length, looking more like an astro-turf lawn than an actual beard.
I think the face is probably the hardest part to work with when doing convincing drag for either sex. For Queens, getting rid of 5 o'clock stubble is a major concern, and for Kings, its hardening the facial features and making convincing facial hair. Most everything else can be concealed and covered more or less.
(3) While staying in the hotel, I was waiting to see all the sissy maids working, but alas nothing. You'd think that with all the stories and captions over the years, I'd have seen at least ONE sissy maid. I'm starting to think that perhaps all these situations are just made up from some peoples overactive imaginations!
I can see where people get such wonderful inspiration from hotels. I barely travel and rarely stay in hotels, but just being in one, I can understand why people use them in stories. There is a certain charm in being unknown and anonymous in a place where no one really knows you. Yet, you can still feel vulnerable, as you don't really know your way around the area, places to eat or have fun, and I can imagine its really easy to get taken advantage of.
DISCUSSION QUESTION: Feel free to elaborate on any of the topics I mentioned above or talk about the caption as well. Since I was away, I didn't have time to do much in the way of planning a specific discussion. I should have a more formal topic for the next posting.
