The Queen should have an additional post on this week’s Untucked by the end of the day. In the meantime, in addition to whether or not the supervisor has put on a few pounds–here are some other things to talk about in the Break Room:
The Queen ain’t gon’ lie: I’ll be watching this show primarily because it’s got a Woman of Color in the lead role, and was created by Shonda Rhimes–arguably the most powerful sister in Hollywood. It thrills me to no end that her name alone is a series draw. The word is still out for me as to what I think of Kerry Washington as an actor. She has been in some amazing films, but to be honest–her work has never really stood out for me. She however looks quite capable in the promos. It also stars Tony Goldwyn as the President of the U.S. A million years ago, the Queen and Mr. Goldwyn were in a new play by Tennessee Williams at the Williamstown Theatre Festival in Williamstown, Massachusetts. It was called Gideon’s Point, and was sort of “Blanche Dubois meets 007.” It was chocked full of gay themes–complete with Secret Service-like male guards (of which I was one) who did each other on the side. It sucked. But Tennessee Williams was a part of the rehearsal process, so the Queen got to work with one of his literary idols. How can you beat that?
Royal Fashion Crisis
The Queen is in a quandary. Okay, it’s not really that much of a quandary…but I LOVE the alliteration in that sentence!!!
For the past 5 years or so, I’ve been going through a difficult period. Things are still quite rocky, but my outlook has changed. Be the change you want to see–that sort of thing. That includes dress. The Queen wants to update the wardrobe with some classic pieces and also a few trendy items. But I’ve been so out of the modern fashion scene for so long, I’m not quite sure in which direction to turn. So:
Fellas: What items are you purchasing this season? What are your must-haves for the Spring and Summer?
Ladies: What kinds of clothes do you like to see men in? Are there trends that you think suck or excite you? Help a monarch out.
Well. Just imagine that.
it seems that there is a surveillance tape from the Sanford, Florida Police Department that shows George Zimmerman being brought into the station on the night of Trayvon’s death. In it, there seems to be no evidence of outward physical trauma to Mr. Zimmerman. Yet the police in that community still stand by their initial report of his injuries.
Today I am musing on why some people feel such a strong need to vilify this boy? I don’t care if his school records indicate that he was drowning baby kittens in the custodian’s slop sink–that has nothing to do with the case. Is it just that people have a hard time fathoming someone shooting a kid for no reason? Unfortunately it happens all of the time. Why, as a nation are we having such a difficult time with this?
