I have just watched the funeral of Carmen- the best drag queen in NZ and in Sydney.
I met Carmen a long time ago - looking amazing and over the top as always - and I thought, then, what a nice person. She was very kind to a member of
my family who was suffering.
Carmen believed in Jesus and was always kind to everyone.
Then I reflected on my life - because I also respected Carlotta, a famous drag queen in Kings Cross, Sydney, Australia (where Carmen also worked) and
Carlos, a fabulous guy who was a great friend of mine on the island of Mykonos, Greece.
And I thought - why are they always called Car something?
I have found that gay men are my best friends.
I am a female and I am not gay - that is just the way it has turned out - and I feel honoured that these people count me as a friend.
And could anyone enlighten me on that Car thing?
But I can tell you this - Carmen was always over the top in life and she was always loving and forgiving.
Carlos was a talented person whom I loved - and he was flattered when I called him Carlotta because I mired Carlotta so much.
Anyway, if you have bothered to read this far.
When we had a news item saying the Christchurch earthquake recovery was so slow, the reporter's name was Speedy.
Also, there was another news item last night about students having difficulties, reported by someone called Smart.
Obama is nearly Osama.
Satan is almost Santa (as someone has pointed out).
Are we all just somebody's sick joke?
