Just so you know, I worked very hard last night during our Facebook Live event.
As one of Chico's Angels, AKA detectives, I made sure to get evidence of our new hunk's hunkiness.

Well, let me tell you... this weekend was filled with plenty of rehearsal, a little socializing and a clubbing. Yeah, I said clubbing because I felt like I had been bludgeoned about the head all day Sunday! I arrived at Precinct at about 9:15
got ready and was dispensing compliments at the Compliments Dispensary by 10:00. I had a great time handing out compliments and was surprised to find that people gave tips for that sort of thing! Here is an example of one of my compliments:
I really enjoyed writing them and watching the expressions of the recipients, but had to be careful not to get too esoteric for the crowd; like when I wrote, "Ju are so nice, like Leona Helmsley en a coma." Some of the kids don't know who that was. Anyway, the place is a blast and I enjoyed the other folks working around me, especially Rasputin's Marionettes!
What is it about him?
I remember these marionettes from seeing the super neato Pretty Things Peep Show, brought to us by Matt Scott and Go-Go Amy!
Plus, the other girlz at the dispensary, Sarah Probblem and Love, Connie (the fabulous John Cantwell) were a joy! We were gathered together by Club King, Mario Diaz.
And there were some dancers... They were nice.
Even the walls are fun (Thanks to Homo Riot in this case)
It was all a great time to be sure! The music was much to my liking, a had one Angry Orchard hard apple cider (because it's gluten-free) and I got a chance to be creative! I was home, out of make-up and in bed by 3:00ish AM.
Anyway, Sunday morning, I woke up at my usual time and went to have breakfast with muh DAB, Glenn. Then, I forced myself to go buy new shoes (I'm the worst gay in that way... do any other gays have to FORCE themselves to go shoe shopping?) then went down for a nap. I re-awoke and headed to rehearsal, feeling like I had been hit by a truck the entire time. I must say my admiration for Mario and Jackie Beat multiplied when I realized that they had just done 3 performances of The Golden Girlz Live prior to arriving Saturday night and were already doing their first of 3 more performances Sunday as I was dragging myself to rehearsal.
As a Gay of A Certain Age; I'm amazed that Jackie had the energy to do all of that while I, just a year or two younger, was trying to figure out how to sneak naps into the brief minutes that I wasn't expected to be saying lines out loud during rehearsal!
Here a big HUZZAH to Jackie, Mario and all the others who do shows and clubs at the same time- you amaze me!
Thank you, Mario, Go-Go Amy and Jackie!
Now please enjoy some pics of me enjoying BONKERZ!
If you're not exhausted
tune in tonight!

Holy, Margret! Sorry I haven't posted in a bit! I'd love to go to that neked pool party with you, but I'm too busy!! Working full time and rehearsing for a show and keeping up social media and socializing is tough!
Along with working 4 Instagram accounts: Chico's Angels, Frieda Laye, Reba Areba and myself, I have to make sure our Facebook accounts are up to date, as well. It takes up a lot of time posting, scrolling & liking other folks those accounts follow!
If i'm not looking at my phone or laptop, I'm staring at my script while rehearsing for CHICO'S ANGELS 4 CHICAS ARE FOVEVER. Not only am I (kinda) learning lines, I'm learning steps!
It ain't easy!
Don't think there's much down time, because instead of sitting back and enjoying the weekend, I'm going to added rehearsals and making appearances. Like, this Saturday, I'll be working the night handing out pleasantries at the Compliments Booth at club BONKERZ! at Precinct in Downtown L.A.
Then, on other nights that I'm not working, I find it important to maintain the few relationships that I do have and value. That calls for spending time with and/or supporting my friends' endeavors. Tonight I'm getting out with a few of my friends to see other friends (the lovely and talented Aynsley Bubbico and Natalie Lander) in The Unauthorized Musical Parody of Bridesmaids at Rockwell.
So I hope you understand that, while I'd love to squeeze into those trunks, that I'm just gonna struggle out of a few minute after I arrive at the neked pool party and try not to drink too much on an empty stomach, because you know, NEKED... I simply CAN NOT, due to my schedule.
Just a reminder;
BONKERZ! This Saturday night
and the diamond heist episode CHICO'S ANGELS 4 Aug 23-Spt 3, which is on the verge of selling out!

After that little kerfuffle with my alleged father, it occurred to me that, unless I get on with adopting a child (mental children adopting children??), I'm not going to have someone of my own to call unnatural and evil. (saddy face) Along with that, I won't have any children to take care of me in my older age. Then again, while I am terrifically grateful to my sisters for taking the lead on caring for our lovely mother, I'm not bending, even in the slightest, to make sure my alleged father is being taken care of. So, even if I DID have a kid I could call unnatural and evil, it still is no guarantee they'd wanna stick around to make sure I'm gumming my One A Day gummies each morning. Don't worry, I'm not even considering adopting. What I do have to consider is the relationships I have with siblings and friends. Who will I have around me in the sunset years? While I ponder that, please read this little ditty on Aging Alone.
