Thursday Ramble - To Wong Foo

I know I usually do Travel Thursday posts on Thursdays, but sometimes a ramble is in order. I happened to be awake way later than I should've been updating my website. I started to realize this is why people have webmasters. Geesh, there's a lot to do in updating a site! Anyway, I am one of those people who needs noise when I work. Maybe it's because I have concentration issues or because I just like noise...I don't know. Anyway, so I had the television playing and the movie, To Wong Foo, Thanks for everything, Julie Newmar was on Bravo. Or maybe it was Ovation? Either way... it was on the TV. So I started watching it. Where I was at when the movie originally released, people freaked out. A movie about drag queens! I wanted to see it, but never got around to it. I mean, hey, I was still in school when it came out. People in my hometown freaked out. Anyhow, so I'm watching it and loving Patrick Swayze in that combination of Joan Crawford and Olivia de Havilland look. He had the face for it. And honestly, Wesley Snipes worked the dresses well, too. My favorite scene is when Noxeema (Snipes) finds all the cool retro clothes in the store. All the people come out looking like they stepped out of 1966. It's great. I loved the confidence. I got the site updated (but it seems like it never ends and is never totally done) and finished the movie. I'm glad I did. Bobby Ray was something yummy, too. I hope I write something that makes people laugh, cry and think the way Wong Foo did. What did you think of the movie?

While I enjoyed Wong Foo, I really like Priscilla Queen of the Desert better. Much like La Cage the original is better but I still enjoyed the remake.
