Hi there !
Okay, I’m sure you’ve heard of this Miss Universe fiasco already. I’m surprised the media had taken notice of this inane and anachronistic event * sings and dances * I feel pretty , oh so pretty, I feel pretty, and witty and gay, And I pity any girl who isn’t me today, lalala…., but hey, we do need to lighten up, right ? Well, I have to be honest and say it got me interested , too, because, * cough , cough * the new Ms.U is from the Philippines. Not that it’s such an earth- shaking event to me, or to the Philippines, for that matter. After all, she’s now the Philippines’ 4th Ms. Universe. The Philippines has been winning at most of these international beauty pageants, big and small… in fact, some complain that it seems Ms. Phil is automatically included in top 10, top 5 , or the runner -up.
So what exactly was the brouhaha all about ? The host, Steve Harvey announced the wrong girl, Ms. Columbia. They handed her the bouquet of flowers, placed the crown on her head, she started waving, then Boom ! You ain’t the winner, Ms. It’s Ms. Philippines. Wait, what, waaaaaaa ! Yikes ! Stupid host…..
You’d think the Phiippines would feel pretty blasé about this kind of thing already, right ? . Well……. no, not really . I’m sure they’re jumping for joy. Filipinos love beauty pageants. There’s this Miss Barrio San Jose, Ms. Del Monte Street, Ms. Boracay, Ms. Manila…. yep, there’s a Miss for every freakin’ occasion and place. Oh, there’s a Miss Gay Philippines, too. Do you know the Philippines is among the top 10 most accepting, gay -friendly countries in the world ? # 9, but would rank higher if the strict Catholic country would allow same- sex marriage.” Oh, you’re gay ? Let’s open a beauty parlor. ” Aunty, not all gays go into beauty business. I’m in college and majoring in Computer Science. Perish that stereo type. ” This dialogue really happened.
So, where was I…….
By the way, the very first Miss Philippines was my mother’s aunt.
I also need to mention my new Manga/Anime blogsite Here.
This is also one of those posts that I wish I hadn’t written, ha ha…. Better get this published pronto before I change my mind.
This is all for now. Happy Holidays to you all, and Merry Christmas.
