My First Pie

I entered a pie contest at work this week--don't get excited, I didn't win--but it was an awesome experience. At first I was nervous. No one wants to kill their colleagues. But after treasure-hunting for as close to the right ingredients as possible and trying as best I could to follow the baking instructions (a Grandma's strawberry rhubarb recipe off the Internet), I was amazed at how science took over and the baking process transformed the dough and sugar into a wonderful crust. It tasted great. (Below, I'm the one on the bottom row, left.) Though I didn't win, my co-workers commended me for its taste and feel in the mouth. Yeah, me!

Fabulous Experience at Night of 100 Drag Queens

My two-night performance as Hello Kitty doing Eartha Kitt's "Too Close for Comfort" was a truly gratifying experience. I reconnected with my dance training and fearlessness and really took my place among the other performers. Yes, I did not have the best make-up or stunning costumes or back-up dancers, but I did double turns, an amazingly slow attitude turn and pops and crackles with my kicks and strikes. All with a smile and joy that dance is supposed to be. If this is chemically inside me to exude, then I could be worse off.

My College Reunion

I thought it would be much more fun, but it was kind of subdued. They never got the music going even though there was a dance floor. Oh well. Great to see some of my college classmates.
