And About Chexxy...

I've been reading a lot of negative comments about the blog "Chexxy's Pearls" of which I am a proud member. Let me break it down for you.

Chexxy's members are not a bunch of fat, old, homophobes. We are just regular people who are sick and tired of all the hatred aimed at Clay Aiken. We are fans. We are not RCs (Rabid Claymates), or mats, or rocks. Our basic goal is to have respect shown to someone who has made a point of stating what he is and what he stands for. A respect that I believe anyone should be afforded.

That's it! That simple.

I commend Chexxy for calling out anyone who is malicious not only to Clay Aiken, but to his family, his friends and his fans.

Judge not lest ye be judged.

Do NOT ask me for a cigarette!

I take a bus to work. I'd like to say that it's to conserve energy or to save the environment, but to be truthful my car is a piece of crap and probably wouldn't make the 30 mile round trip.



Invariably, as I wait for the bus, someone will ask me for a cigarette (because of course, I'm smoking one).



I used to automatically hand one over but lately I've been asking myself "why"? I earn money to buy these cancer sticks, why on earth would I give them away?! I've always said "sorry, that was my last one" or "no, sorry I don't have enough". But the following responses are what I'd really like to say...



"How old are you"? (because 9 times out of 10 the person looks like they're 15 years old).



"I buy my cigarettes, I don't steal them".



"Today I'm saving a life. No, you can't have one"



Think they'd get the hint?

We Can Dish It Out....

Kelly, Kelly, Kelly. Since 2003, when you made it quite clear who your favorite was in the American Idol contest, it has been quite well known that you weren't a fan of Clay Aiken. From the snide comments to the HOMOPHOBIC reference at Halloween when you dressed up like Clay and did your little thing with Regis, it has been very clear what your feelings are.

But to mention Howard Stern's name as a friend who called to give you support? Well, ewww! That certainly wouldn't score points with anyone I know.

So really, just let it go. Each time you comment about it, you appear more and more like a spoiled little brat.

Asked. Answered. Move on!

I've seen so many blogs and heard so many interviews about Clay Aiken lately that my head is spinning! How many times does this poor man have to answer the same question before people leave it alone?

I'll tell you the problem. There are many that for some reason just don't like him and no matter what, they never will. Clay said "you can't make people like you", and guess what? They don't matter, and for the most part they are not worth it. They will continue to slander and smear, and perhaps someday will move on to someone else.

Till then, I am a fan, and along with all of Clay's fans, will be there supporting him forever.

You Had Me at "Oceans"

I attended my very first cd release party last night and what a great time! You have to be someone very special to be a Clay Aiken fan and these ladies were the true definition of "Claymates"; kind and funny and so very generous. After the food and fun we descended on our local Walmart and I think we scared the cashier to death, lol!

I couldn't wait to get out to the car to put the cd in the player but first I had to unwrap the dang thing and that was a battle in itself. And then to see the stupid barcode covering the liner notes...Argh!!! Anyway, finally got the cd in the player and from the breathless "baby" in "Everything I Do" to the haunting "Broken Wings" I was reminded again of the voice. There is just no denying that voice!

Thank you Clay. You make me so happy to be a fan!

What Me? Worry?

Not on your life! He was funny, he was honest, but most of all he was confident! The haters will say what they want but Clay Aiken was superb on Leno. The cd is going to be a HUGE hit and I couldn't be happier.

It's going to be a media blitz this week with ET and GMA and I do believe that certain dirtbags will be climbing back into their holes.

Viva la Clay Nation!!!!!!!

9/11 - Always Remember

Today, of course, is a sad day in the history of the United States. Can you remember what you were doing on 9/11/01? I can. And although I was a couple of hundred miles away at the time, the confusion and sorrow was something that will stay with me for life.

What remains with me the most is how the country came together that day and for several days afterwards. It was a time to appreciate one another and to put differences aside.

I ask myself all the time why there is so much hatred in the world. Unfortunately, I will never know the answer.

So today, just out of respect, try to love one another.
