Why is it that my idea of a really fun night entails lip syncing “Bootylicious” in drag? It not only sounds fun but it is kind of my ultimate adrenaline rush. 

I think of everything from buying makeup to how to get over the awkward dressing room. Maybe I need to invest more time in internet shopping? Either way, I have to get in front of people dressed in those same clothes I so awkwardly bought.

What am I going to tell my parole officer when they do the whole house search thing and find a closet full of drag clothes, that won’t be weird or nothing…I want to meet other drag queens so I can learn about some of this stuff. I have never applied makeup before and the closest I got to drag as an adult is I put my hair in a pony tail and wore bangs for the day. You should have seen the looks I got. It was like I was wearing a leather mask in JCPenny’s running around yelling at people to pinch my nips. Nobody knew what to do with me.

I find myself spending more and more time posing and working on my singing face than almost anything else I do for fun. I’m sure I will make momma proud with this little job…oh boy!

At least I will have traded my anger and hiding with something more positive, heels and attitude! WAY MORE FUN!!

With Love
