The Daily Agenda for Wednesday, November 9

Jim Burroway

November 9th, 2011

My apologies for not posting anything yesterday except for yesterday’s agenda. I’ve been extremely busy. I’ve got a lot of things in the pipeline for BTB, but they are time consuming. Which means they’ll be done and published when they’re done.

And as for today’s agenda, this is one of those days where I don’t have any notifications of anything happening, nor do I have any historical items or birthdays to write about. But I do have this from Domenick Scudera, describing what a typical day in his totally gay lifestyle looks like:

7:00 a.m. I wake up, and just as I have done every morning since puberty, I choose to be gay today. This will come as a great relief to my gay, homosexual, male lover who lies beside me. Because being gay is a choice, our relationship is a gamble day to day. Even though we have both chosen to remain gay and to be together every day for the past 16 years, we never take anything for granted. One of us just might throw in the towel one day and give up the lifestyle.

7:30 a.m. I take a gay shower and let the gay water rinse off my gay body.

8:00 a.m. I have a gay breakfast of cereal with milk, and a good, strong, gay cup of coffee. I am fortified for another day of ruining the fabric of American society.

That doesn’t hold your interest? Well how about this video that Rob Tisinai found: a bunch of old Chinese people singing Lady Ga Ga’s “Bad Romance”?

Choose to be gay? Most gays are gay; they don’t have to choose if they want to live with themselves.

Um, Don… It’s a joke.

Jim, here’s one for you. James Rennell Rodd, a minor, if unimportant, poet born this day in 1858, I think. He might have been an early jiltee of oscar wilde. Mostly he’s not remembered at all.

I look forward to reading your future posts. Just wanted to let you know that you do an excellent job!

This morning, I woke and chose to be gay (again; gotta stop doing that). Then I chose to have blue eyes (although I swear, I’m gonna try those brown ones someday) and chose to be 5’10” (but I admit I’d like to try a couple more inches, just to see).

Turned on the weather report while shaving, and heard that it’s going to rain today.

Well! I don’t support rain. Not at all; never will I support, endorse or encourage rain (especially near schools or in the military).

So I called the weatherman. Believe me, I let him have it for endorsing rain like he does – a mention of it is bad enough, but he lets it have its say, describes it, measures it, treats it like it’s “normal.”

Well, he got a sore ear from me. The least he could do, I said, is narrow his eyes at it to make it know how unwanted it is. Frown at it to make it go away. Ban it from public display. Wise up to its agenda. Quit giving it exposure and special rights.

How can you “support” rain and still call yourself a weatherman? I asked.

There was no answer, but I think he got the message.

“I’ve got a lot of things in the pipeline for BTB, but they are time consuming.”

You’ve got my attention. Your in-depth pieces represent some of the best work in the blogosphere. Not the gay blogosphere, the whole blogosphere.

Don’t toy with us, Burroway. Give us a hint!
