Mid-Week Highlights

*Being sick is very uncool. Particularly when you have no idea what is really wrong with you. It feels like the flu at times. Other times I’ve suffering from acid reflux. Most of the time I have horrible sinuses and body aches. Being doped up on meds is not helping either.

*We all have talents and one of mine seem to be the ability to make awesome cinnabuns. They’re smaller than the ones you buy at restaurants, they don’t have the cream cheese sauce and they never look like the ones in the recipe book. Yet, they’re still awesome.

*Tonight after work I’ll be having a hot stone massage. I’ll also be going for a wax but I’m less-excited about that.

*I have two serious cravings at the moment. Pizza and Snickers chocolate. I’ve had two pizzas over the weekend and am trying to avoid another carb-overload this weekend. I don’t think I need to explain the Snickers craving. It is after all the king of chocolates.

*I found my navy Country Road cardigan which I was sure was taken by someone with impeccable style and taste. Turns out it had taken refuge in my swimwear and exercise wear drawer. Serves me right for not going to gym so regularly. Now I’m on the lookout for my Spice Girls Greatest Hits and my 50s style black skirt. I want them back bitches.

*I have discovered I have a problem with people I just meet being over-familiar. I try not to let it bother too much as people cope with next situations and people in their own ways. But still, it tends to bug me.

Have a fab mid-week!

This Week I...

…went to a drag show.

On Sunday night, Skinny Bitches and their favourite gays headed over to Beefcakes to have some cocktails, some nibbles and watch a drag show.

I started the night off with an Apple Be Martini and it was delish. Definitely the best apple martini I’ve tasted in Cape Town.

Once we’d eaten – an assortment of mini burgers, nachos and potato wedges – we anxiously awaited the arrival of Ms Venus Mercedes.

She appeared in a wave of smoke and glitter. Okay not really but it definitely sounds better then she walked up a flight of stairs and burst into a show tune.

The show was great. Apart from costume changes, sexy dance moves and some Liza covers, Ms Mercedes also talked us through her experience with love. Being a predominantly gay space, I did expect a chorus of “You don’t need to tell me about heartache, darling” but alas nothing.

Well I enjoyed the show, I always feel I could do better. It’s all those hours of watching Priscilla Queen of the Desert.

The only thing I’d struggle with is my drag name. I have an awesome stripper name but a drag name needs a touch of class.

Any suggestions?
