Too Busy For Love - Drag Season Overload Part 4

I’d love to go to that fancy restaurant where they make the gluten-free crust for the poke/chorizo/Raclette flatbread right there at your table, but I’m too busy! No sooner had Long Beach Gay Pride passed, when I hopped on-stage to perform VIVA LAS CHICAS!
It's our Variety Show!  I had to learn a monologue, some new scenes and a few new songs for this outing.  Even though we had minimal rehearsal, which aided with my busy schedule, the show seemed to come together well enough opening night and was in great shape when we closed. 

It was a fun time, singing songs and doing sketches without having a story to play out over two hours, as usual.  I also enjoyed going out into the audience, at the beginning, to find out what movie people were looking forward to seeing this summer.
Heck yeah, I went to the cute guys!
And true to character, when asked what movie she was looking forward to seeing, Frieda Laye responded, "HEAD PULL".

I regret that we didn't have a hot, shirtless hunk in this show, but I wasn't completely let down...
 My favorite part was our sketch called KAYWATCH, wherein we grab a guy from the audience
who is drowning (Whether he knows it or not)
Bring him up on stage
and help him 
by giving him CPK... er DVR... er, CPR
until he is saved and then has to endure being on stage while Kay Sedia sings a song.
That part was all improvised and I felt lucky that it was my job to determine that each guy needed CPK.  They were all great sports and some of them had surprisingly nice pecs! ...and/or piercings!

Then, of course, there's the little meet and greet after the show.  Lovely folk hang out after to get a pic and a squeeze.  Here's a little sampling of after-stayers;
I see Aaron Tone & Glenn Gaylord

Isn't that Dennis Hensley?

We saved the guy in the middle from drowning!!

I saved this guy, too!
(the first rule of improv life guarding is DON'T FALL IN LOVE)

Don't think that I get to eat that raw fish pizza with you, now!
We're taking VIVA LAS CHICAS to Palm Springs!  We'll be doing three week nights at 

If you're in the dessert June 12, 13 & 14, COME SEE THE SHOW!

So, while I'd love to get trendy eats with you, I can't! I'm too busy!

Now, whatever shall I do during the day in Palm Springs?

Too Busy For Love - Drag Season Overload Part 3

I'd love to go to that swimming party with you where all the hunky guys ask us to rub sunblock on their rock hard muscly backs, but I can't!  I'm too busy!

After attending the fun goings on at Overboard LBC, I had to get up early, apply some slap, slip into a dress and hop onto a float!

I rode the BEST IN DRAG SHOW float in the Long Beach Pride Pride Parade.  I had a lovely time!  I enjoyed the festivities with my fellow BIDS contestants...

Totally showed my appreciation to the banner bearers...

Laughed at the funny stuff event leader, Lotta Slots, was saying over the loud speaker...

And completely surrendered to the help of our hunky helpers and co-floatees!

The parade itself was a very nice time!  

I loved seeing Grand Marshal, Alexandra Billings!

I enjoyed myself very much and regret that my poor planning has me in NY and unable to ride the BIDS float in the LA Pride Parade.

Meanwhile, I'm still dragging it up this week in VIVA LAS CHICAS

So while I'd like to get all hot with you, rubbing hot mens back and fighting UV rays, 
I can't! I'm too busy!!

Too Busy For Love - Drag Season Overload Part 2

I'd love to binge watch that show where the guys dress up as girls and mouth words to songs with you on your pull-out bed couch wearing only boxer shorts and cozy socks, but I'm too busy!!

Not only do I keep busy putting on a dress, but I also dog/cat sit.  It's not that difficult a job, but when you add feeding three cats and watering 145,633 plants each morning, it adds bulk to an already crammed schedule.  ..but aren't these cats just delicious???

Fortunately, my recent kitty house sitting gig ended the morning I needed to head to Long Beach for a pool party (more on that later... all you need to know now is that it took up a chunk of the afternoon.) then, check into a hotel, take a nap, shave and drag up for an appearance at a Long Beach Pride Opening Party at Overboard LBC!

I had a lovely time with lovely people and even caught a drag queen performing!

Enjoy some of my pictures of the evening (Then, a few at the end which aren't mine, courtesy of BragaPhoto)

Thank you for the invite, Joe Pizano!!

I think I have an Andrew Christian Underwear entry to make, no?

Fun times with Hector Monserratte

Add to all this, Chico's Angels: Viva Las Chicas opens TONIGHT!

As you can see, putting on a dress, putting on shows and hanging out with fun folk, watching hot mens dance around in sexy underwears is very time consuming. So, while I'd love to lip synch to Siouxsie and the Vanjies with you, I can't! I'm too busy!!
