The A List Cont’d

Standard

The damning Wikileaks exposé on a meeting with the wife of a high ranking member of Jamaican Society has unearthed standards of decorum and behaviour expected of anyone but especially those on our A- List. If per chance any of us were invited to the homes, offices or any meeting place by these persons we can expect that:
1.Food will be fresh and not leftovers from a previous meal
2.The beverage being served will relate to the theme of the occasion
and indeed its label if one is explicitly provided

Having said that readers will recall, that in our December 5th Posting we had indicated that the A List is not a Hot List, and as such should be read independently and separately from the earlier list. Whilst there are a hodge podge of reasons for the different persons being on the list, the universal factor is that of social profile albeit that
profile need not be in a strictly LGBT context.

The List

5.The Ambassador
When others list French, Spanish or even Russian and Chinese as secondary languages this BBM (Big, Beautiful Man) lists his as Norwegian. In 2010 he became the community’s Representative to that impressive New York based Global Body and now no longer remembers what economy class on an airline looks like. In spite of his many accomplishments, which includes his long standing live in relationship with Lady Beatrix, arithmetic is not one of them and the source of embarrassing episodes often involving counting from his birth year.

4.Lady Chesterville
This little princess does have somewhat have a bit of a tyrannical streak, which some have quietly commented reminds them of a Desperate Housewife. Yet this tyrannical streak is her strength and not her weakness as she does have a reputation of getting things done, wielding teams together and forging alliances. Furthermore, she is not wishy washy either as her volunteering with NGO’s (albeit somewhat suspended) and personal interventions as it relates to housing and caring for persons affected by discrimination shows!

3.The Vicar
Easily the most commented on personality for 2010 and yet one of the most affable. We need not say much about him except to reinforce that he is the chief anointer of UPT parties. The rumour mill is churning as to what he and his motley crew might be doing for New Years but we know that the Abbey will be rocking!

2. Lady Rottweiler
Its a testament to this gentleman’s greatness when you can be away from the island and still manage to be near the summit of any list. Most persons either love him or hate him but most admire him. His intellect is unquestionable and affinity for the finer things/men in life undeniable. Don’t get it twisted though, his bite is as bad as his bark but in the end he is just a great big pup.

1. Dr. Buddha Ganesh
An invitation to tea or a lyme with this gentleman is something to be treasured and would make you the envy of some the island’s most prominent citizens. To be in his company is to be among greatness. However, what makes this character so special is not what he has or what he has accomplished but who he is as a person! He has a special magnetism that makes Bulls quake and horses kneel. To be on his invitation list is a signal that you have arrived.

As we head into  Christmas and Boxing Day, we here at the Pink Report would like to wish you our Readers a wonderful, happy,joyous, and A List season. For those who are religious and are have been following the evolution of this list: we would like to remind them that when Jesus came he hung out with thieves, prostitutes (now called commercial sex workers) and other deviants who would not be classified as A List persons. In short whilst we must aim to be better men and women, we must not loose our sense of self nor grow contemptious of our fellow man. for those who are not religious I leave you with the words of Rudyard Kipling:

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings–nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much,
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And–which is more–you’ll be a Man, my son!

Selah
