My life as a heterosexual crossdresser.

Boiler Room with friends 6-30-2012

Well we still don’t have a regular place to go on Friday nights yet so we planned on meeting at Fox & Hound for dinner and then go to the Boiler Room. I got downtown Portland at 7:30 and keeping my parking string intact I found a spot almost right in front of Fox & hound. Cassandra and Chris were already at the bar so I joined them. It wasn’t long and Karen showed up. I have been chatting with her on Face book for about 5 months. She was coming to Portland and was looking for a place to go out. Turns out she went out with Victoria Sinclair on Wednesday night and they met up with our group but just a little after I left. It was wonderful to finally meet her and get to know her better. This is me and Karen and yes I remembered to take some pictures tonight so there will be lots of pictures in this blog.

Stefia showed up next, it was cool to see her again, we have done dinner once and she has met me several time at Starbuck. She had on a really cute pink dress, yes I love pink. Now that we had several of us we decided to eat so we put some tables together. We ordered dinner and started talking. It was a great chance to learn all about Karen and where she lives and does for a living, and she has some good stories.

Diamond Dee and Rachel showed up as we were finishing dinner so it was time to figure out what we wanted to do and everyone seemed happy with going to the Boiler Room as they have a pool table and we can listen to Karaoke. Now last week the Boiler Room was so crowded you could hardly move inside tonight there was a little less inside but also being nice outside and not raining like last week lots of people were outside at tables. This also made it nice as when it got really hot inside we could step outside and cool off.

We started playing pool and there were some ladies and a couple of guys at the table next to us and they were so awesome. One of the girls named Holly (Yes I can remember her name) was having so much fun with Cassandra and me so yes I had to get a picture with her. We had a great time chatting with them while we played pool. Yes I played and came close to winning against Cassandra, I actually sunk all my balls first but missed on the 8 ball, Cassandra sunk her remaining ball and the 8 ball but it was a good game.

Any way as I said we had a blast talking with these girls and even the two guys with them and they were fine with us. Actually lots of pictures were taken with them, they took more of them with us then we did. Even the one guy with them was in on the pictures. This is me with the other 3 and it is a blonde moment because I cannot remember their names. Probably because the two on my right were telling me how pretty I looked at the same time we were exchanging names and you can guess what part I remembered. The girl to my left it was her 33rd birthday and that is why they were out celebrating. They were really awesome to get to know I this is one of the things I really love interacting with the general public and so much better when they are so wonderful.

Later on Chris went up to sing Karaoke; wow I give him a lot of credit. It would be so much fun to be able to just do something like that but still not ready maybe someday. Any way Cassandra and I went up front to watch, support Chris as he sung and ran into two women and a guy sitting upfront, ones name was Catherine, the other one and her boyfriend I can’t remember. They actually got Cassandra and me to dance with them, well mine was more of a stand there and sway but hey it was fun. They were pretty awesome also. We chatted for a bit and then went back to our table. A little later Catherine and her friends were going to another club but stopped by to say good bye to us, how cool is that.

Karen and I played a game of pool of which I won but it took a lot of work, neither one of us will make a living playing pool but it was a lot of fun. Kelly, Robin and Gina were also there so now we all sat around and talked while we listened to Karaoke and some of them were really good. We talked about what we want to do as a group as far as going out. Some girls would like to see us go out on Saturday night, some would like to find a place we can go every week and some would like to mix up places we go. Funny thing is it is about 1/3rd each so no clear choice. The good thing is we can always post to the group if we want to go out so maybe we can actually turn being asked not to come to the P-Club into a good thing and increase the amount of nights our group goes out.

Holly and her friends were leaving and they came over to say good bye also and even asked how often we come there, how awesome is that. All the girls gave us hugs and to my surprise the one guy still with them also gave us hugs and said good bye.

It was now 12:45 and some of the group was ready to leave and the rest of us wanted some fresh air so we moved outside to a table so we could talk more and we could still here the music inside. While we were sitting outside Catherine and her friends came back. They stopped and talked with us for maybe 20 minutes. It turns out Catherine’s friend’s father is a crossdresser and she is totally fine with it. She told us about him and how she found out and of course had questions which we I and the other girls in the group are always happy to answer. Well of course I had to get a picture with Catherine and she really is pretty and turns out almost the same height as me. You have to love tall woman.

Well after they went inside we sat there talking as people passed by. Never a bad comment from anyone that we heard and several stopped to talk to us or compliment us. You have to love warm summer nights. I don’t think I have ever just sat out at a table on the street like this, it really was fun.

Well by now it was just Kelly, Karen and I left but we just sat there talking and having a fun night. It really was fun to be downtown with all the other people. It was almost 2 when the three of us decided it was time to call it a night. We said our goodbyes and went our separate way. It was an awesome night and great to get to meet Karen and get to know her. I look forward to her next visit to Portland which is only about once a year.

I am not sure I will get out this week but plan on next Friday and of course next Saturday is our monthly social at Cassandra and Peggy’s house.

Thanks for reading and have a great week.

Wow just checked my stats for my blog and this was not only my busiest month but also had my busiest day. Thanks, never thought my little blog and story would be of interest to others.

Wednesday night dinner.

Well it has been another busy week but still wanted to go out. Since I got off work early I decided to go down town for dinner with my friends. I was ready to leave by 6 tonight which was nice as neither of my neighbors were home yet which allowed me to get out pretty easy.

I got down town by 6:30 and found a park spot and walked the half block to Fox & Hound. Cristine, Chris and Roxy were already there and sitting at the Bar so I joined them. The Bar tender remembered my name and my drink, Sprite. Candy was also at the bar so I chatted with her for a little bit, it has probably been two years or more since I have seen her out. Well we moved to a table so we could order dinner.

The four of us sat there and talked and wondered if others would show up. About 7:45 Rachel and Diamond Dee showed up. I think I have met Rachel before but first time I have Met Diamond Dee, it was nice to get to know her. Kim also showed up which is always nice.

We had a good size group now so we headed over to CC Slaughters to play pool. It was a pretty slow night there but sure later they would get busy. I looked up and Rita was walking over to us. Now it has been over a year since she has been out with the group. It was great to see her again.

It was a really fun night and we were all having a good time. But as it got later it was time for this girl to head home as I get up really early during the week for work. I think it was about 10:15 when I finally left.

We still haven’t figured out what we want to do as a group on Friday nights. We talked a little and decided to meet at fox & hound for dinner this Friday between 7 & 7:30 after that we are not sure. I think we will probably end up at the Boiler room again. We had a fun time last week there just a little crowded on the weekend.

A new path on Friday night

Well it is Friday night and time to go out. We can no longer go to the P-Club as you read in my previous post “We say goodbye to the P-Club” so the plan was to meet at Fox & Hound for dinner at 7:30 and talk about what we wanted to do. Now we have gone through this before. I guess it is hard to find a place that will accept a large group. I guess if it was just 2 or 3 of us going someplace we would be easier overlooked then when say 20 to 40 of us show up but then we are a group of friends, a family if you wish so we need to find a place that will be just as happy with a couple of us or the whole group.

Well I have got a little off track but as long as I am, Cassandra posted a YouTube video where she played the two messages that Chris the owner of the P-Club left on her phone asking us not to come back. Now the bad part is a former member of our group left a comment on the video that was very derogatory in nature to all transgender people which I found surprising because she is also a crossdresser which means basically speaking about herself as well.

What did you morons think was going to happen? A bunch of big, old, fat dudes in dresses show up every week and make a spectacle of themselves, and you’re shocked that you got kicked out?? Heck, I’m a crossdresser, and I couldn’t stand that scene anymore. So you can imagine what the general public thinks! The owner started complaining over a year ago about your group going there, yet you chose to ignore him and continue to go there anyway. I’m shocked that he was as nice about it as he was

Now as a transgender community if this is how we treat and talk about each other than how in the world can we expect people from outside of our community to respect us and treat us with dignity. Yes Cassandra deleted the comment as I would have if this was left on my blog. We as a community need to stick together and it does not matter if you are transgender, transsexual, transvestite, or a crossdresser, and it does not matter if you dress all the time once a week, once a year, or if you dress completely or just like to wear a couple items we are all part of the transgender family. Okay I will get off my soap box now.

Well I got to Fox & Hound at 7:30 and for a Friday night found a parking spot right on the corner between the 2 places we would be tonight, felt like I won the lottery as parking downtown on a weekend is hard. Cassandra was the only one there so far so I joined her at the bar for a drink, my usual Sprite. We talked for a while and one of the bar tenders gave us a tip on a place to go that he says would love to have us so we will have to check that out.

About 8 we moved to a table in hopes others would show up and so we could order dinner as we were both hungry. Victoria showed up and the 3 of us ordered some food and talked. Bobby and Jen, Jen in boy mode showed up. I think this is the first time I have ever met this Jen before but then again I may have met her female self. We had a good dinner and then about 9:30 we decided to go over to the Boiler room.

Now for those who don’t know the boiler room it is the best place in Portland to go if you want to do Karaoke not that I can sing. They also have a pool table so we could do that. They were already packed and yes they check ID which does make a girl feel good but not sure what they could tell as none of us really look like our pictures on the ID except for Victoria as she went full time last fall. We made our way back by the pool table and found a few seats.

Now the Boiler Room is a 1/3 the size of the P-Club and they had more people there then the P-Club has had on their busiest night, you could hardly move and the bar staff never stopped working. Now the group has gone here many times on Wednesday nights so the staff knows some of the girls but this was the first on a Friday night. We did get a few looks but after the initial look they went back to what they were doing which was singing and having a good time.

The other difference which I really liked is all the woman were dressed up. I would say 1/3 had in dresses and most had on heels which other than our group at the P-Club the woman did not do. And some of the heels and dresses were awesome. It was fun just to people watch.

Bob showed up with his girlfriend Carol, I met her Wednesday night for the first time at CC’ Slaughters which is right across the street by the way. She is really nice and we had a good conversation. I am not sure how we got on the subject of Halloween but Cassandra challenged her to get Bob to dress as a woman next year and she thought that was a great idea, she said she would dress as a man and Bob as a woman. That would be so fun.

There was one girl there in this really awesome dress and I stopped her as she went by and told her how great her dress was. Now she was this tiny thing of course most are next to me but the dress was gorgeous but I know it would not look the same on me. She thanked me and we chatted for a couple minutes. A little later her and her friend came over and we talked some more. They loved my hair, well not my hair although I did buy it so I guess it is mine. They also loved my nails so we all compared our nails. Theirs were beautiful too plus theirs were acrylic.

I did play 2 games of pool, won the first and lost the second. Another girl came by with these really awesome heels so I complimented her on her heels and she stopped and we chatted for a while. It really is funny if you tell someone how cute they look or you like their dress or heels it is a great way to break the ice and start a conversation. It really was a fun night and went by way to fast.

Soon it was almost 2 am and they were still packed. Usually on Fridays when we leave the P-Club we are the last ones, tonight when we left there were still 50+ people there still singing, dancing and having a good time. We still don’t know what we will do on Friday nights, find one place to go or mix it up and alternate places. I put a post in the group for ideas as I really think everyone should have input. That way it is not left up to a few or one to decide as that is not fair plus there are always those who say we do the same thing all the time but never come up with ideas for things to do. Of course now that I have said that I need to make sure I also give my input.

Well thanks for reading and have a great week.

Out with my friends on a Wednesday night.

Well it has been a busy week but I wanted to go out and I thought why not go downtown Portland and meet up with my friends. After the issue we had with the P-Club I really wanted to talk with some of the girls and see what their thoughts were. I was all ready by 6:45 and ready to leave and sure enough my neighbors were out front talking while there 5 kids played in the street right in front of my house. Now I know at some point they will see me leave but there was just no way I could leave knowing they were out there so I waited. It was about 30 minutes before they all went inside and I could leave. So with a later start then I planed I was on my way.

The group was having dinner at Fox & Hound so that is where I met them, Cassandra, Chris, Roxy, Cristine and Michelle were already there. We all ordered dinner and yes most of the conversation was about being kicked out of the P-Club. There has been some talk of what we could do and yes legally the owner was wrong but my thought is do we really want to be someplace that does not want us there and support their business with our money. Any way after talking for a while we decided that this Friday we would meet at Fox & Hound for dinner and talk as to what the group wants to do on Friday nights.

Kim also showed up which was great, she is quitting smoking and we are all supporting her and know she can do it. Anyway she is the one who got our group going to the P-Club. She is a hairdresser and one of her customers told her about the P-Club and how they were really slow on Friday nights and could use the business.

Well about 9 we all walked over to CC Slaughter to play pool. Joan and Victoria met us there. Now it wasn’t real busy at this time so we were able to talk some more. Bob also showed up with his girlfriend, this is the first time I have met her and she seems nice. Kitty was also there and it has been a long time since I have seen her.

It was a fun night and I stayed out later then I planned it was almost 11 when I left which is late for a weeknight for me. So Friday night will be different this week but it will still be fun being out with my friends. Thanks for reading and have a great rest of the week.

We say goodbye to the P-Club

Well it is a sad day for our wonderful group. We have been going to the P-Club for two years now and never had an issue with any of the customers there. Never caused a problem or a scene and now after two years the owner Chris has asked us not to come there anymore. He says it is because we are costing him business although they are just as busy on Friday nights as the first time we went there. Below is the message he left on Cassandra’s phone.

“Hello, My name is Chris…I am the owner of the P Club bar and grill on North Lombard…Ummm…Unfortunately due to circumstances beyond my control I am going to have to ask for you Cass and your group NOT to come back on Friday nights…ummmmm….I really dont like having to do that but unfortunately its the area we are in and its hurting my business alot. If you have any questions please feel free to give me a call at 503-xxx-xxxx…again I am really sorry about having to do this but give me a call…”

It really is a shame as we have made some good friends there between the staff and a lot of the regular customers. We will have to find another place to go on Friday night. I just wanted to post this in case someone who has read or follows my blog was thinking of meeting our group there we won’t be there.

Spending time with friends at the P-Club

Well it was another long week for my male self so I was really looking forward to Friday night out with my friends. I was all ready by 6:45 and on my way to the P-Club. I got there a little after 7 and there was no parking on the street in front or in the parking lot so I had to park around the corner about a half block up, this is only the second time in the two years we have been coming here I have had to park so far away. I got inside and the club was packed.

Cassandra & Chris were already there so I joined them, they told me that there was a retirement party for a local teacher going on and that is why they were so busy, but it was good to see a big crowd there. Nicole brought me a drink and I ordered some food as I was hungry. Now we sat around and talked while we waited for more t-girls to show up. It wasn’t long and more of our group started showing up.

It was now time for shuffle board. Cassandra and Lana played Kelly and me in a game. Kelly and I got off to a fast lead and never looked back. The next game Kelly and Lana played Dalia and me, this game was a lot closer but Dalia and I won. Lana did have one turn where she had a 5 that hung over the end and a 3 that hung over the end giving them a lot of points till Dalia with her last two shots knocked both off and we ended up getting the points. The last game was just Lana and me; she wanted a little more practice. It was fun to play one on one and I gave her some tips. The game was close but I did win.

By now we had about 15 to 20 girls there, Petra showed up with a couple new girls, First was Pepper, she was in town from Chicago and it was only her second time out. She went to Victoria Sinclair to get a makeover. Victoria runs Over the Rainbow Transformations and does makeovers for men who want to look pretty. I had a good time talking to Pepper and getting to know her.

The other girl was Dona; I think she went out maybe on a Wednesday as she knew a few of the girls. We had a chance to talk and Cassandra and I were telling her how we do our nails. If you don’t know already I love long nails and don’t feel complete without them. Anyway Cassandra had a spare full set in her purse so she quickly did Dona’s nails and showed her how easy it is to do them. I have blogged about how I do the nails before so if you are interested just read my blog great idea for fast beautiful nails. Even Lana was interested so you know you are doing something right when a GG likes your tips, yes I forgot to mention Lana is a GG.

It was a really fun night as always and a great way to start a weekend. We stayed till closing so it was after 2 am when we left.

Any way thanks for reading and have a great weekend. Happy Fathers Day to any Fathers out there.

Saturday night BBQ

Well I was invited to a BBQ at Rachel’s house Saturday night at 6 pm. I met Rachel several years back at Embers and she is really awesome and totally cool with t-girls. Anyway she has a friend who comes to town once a year and she does a BBQ for her friends. Now I went last year so I have met most of the people who would be there. I have been really looking forward to this all week. It

Well I was all ready by 5 pm and on my way. I had my GPS all set and as luck would have it I went right by Lloyd Center and as I had time and needed some foundation I figured why not stop at Nordstrom’s. I went in to the MAC counter and to my surprise they were not that busy so I was helped right away. The foundation I use is Studio Fix and it turns out they were out at the counter but the lady helping me checked the computer and they had some upstairs so she went up to get it. This gave me a chance to look around the counter. One of the other ladies working there came over and asked if I had any questions and of course I did. I asked her how she got her eye liner with such a fine line and she told me the brush she uses and also asked how she got her eye shadow to stay so well and look so vivid and she told me about an eye shadow base, yes even now I am still learning tips on makeup. Well the other lady came back with my foundation and of course I went ahead and got the eye shadow base as I figure I could give it a try. I have always had wonderful experiences at Nordstrom’s.

Well I got to Rachel’s house just before 6 and went in. I brought a veggie tray and it turns out a few others also brought veggie trays too. Any way there were a few people there already and I remembered most of them from last year, and they even remembered me also. One of the Ladies brought a blue cheese dip which was really good and went really fast. While we snacked we enjoyed good conversation, Rachel’s friend actually lives in Australia and comes once a year to visit so it was really interesting to hear all about where she lives. I think it would be fun to go there someday maybe when I win the lottery.

Soon others started to show up. Penelope and her husband showed up. I met Penelope the same night I met Rachel at Embers. It was great to see her as the last time we got together was last year at the BBQ. It was great to chat with her and catch up on what’s new. Rachel’s daughter was even there so I got to meet her also.

Rachel’s friend Candace showed up, her and Rachel bought a horse together several months back. Candace was really nice and we talked at great length about their horse. Turns out they board it only a couple miles from where I live.

The grills were ready and time to start cooking the burgers. Rachel was the main cook and did an awesome job. Candace and I also helped well we really just watched the burgers when Rachel went in the house and we warmed the buns. Finally the food was done and time to eat, it was all so good and the burgers were awesome. We all got our plates and then sat outside at the picnic tables. The weather was good no rain and just a little chilly when the sun went behind the clouds. For desert they had these really good peanut butter bars with chocolate on top of them and also a cherry pie, both were really good.

I stayed till about 10:30 before calling it a night. It was a really fun night and it turns out I was the only t-girl there as Teresa never made it. A big thanks to Rachel for such a fun night and good food.

Starting the weekend with friends

Well it has been another long and busy week for this girl and she was so looking forward to a fun night out with friends. I started getting ready a little early in hopes of being out the door by 6:30 but it took a little longer with my makeup and was almost 7 when I was ready. It is funny as I am so a wear of why it takes woman longer to get ready. As a man it is really easy, shower shave dress and out the door but not for woman. Doing makeup is really an art form just like painting you just can’t slap it on it takes time.

Any way I was doing my makeup tonight and just had so many issues with it and the funny thing is I doubt if anyone would have noticed but me when I was standing in front of the mirror getting ready. First was the eyeliner I had a hard time getting both eyes the same, left eye always harder as I am right handed. So this took several tries. Next was my lips, I love red lipstick always have but I also know not many women wear it and it really does stand out so the only time I wear it is when I go to a club like Friday nights. The problem with red lipstick is it really shows and any slight mistake is like a neon sign. Well I put lip liner on and on the right side got just a little higher which again looking in the mirror really stood out so more lip liner to even them out. Well needless to say I was finally satisfied and started getting dressed. I had chose to different dresses to wear and was looking at them on my bed and both are really cute on me I decided on a different dress so back to the closet. Well I was finally all ready and took that one last look in the mirror and you know with the eye shadow and wig no one would have noticed the issues I had with the eye liner and probably not the lip stick either. Well I was happy plus I really enjoy doing my makeup so it was all good.

I got to the P-Club about 7:15 and was the first one there; I knew Cassandra would be late so this wasn’t a surprise. I got our usual table and I had no more than sat down when a woman came over to talk to me. She was curious to know how tall I was which I know is my biggest flaw as a girl as I am 6′ which I told her. Any way she introduced herself, her name was Fatima and she told me I looked beautiful which every girl loves to hear. Seems she had been in a few weeks back and saw our group and thought it was great. She even offered to buy me a drink, now I have had a few men in the past offer to buy me drinks which I always politely turn down as I am not interested in men and it is strange for me to have a man pay that kind of attention to me after all I am a man who just likes to dress and act like a woman. Well I accepted her drink offer so she asked what I wanted. Now I am not a drinker, just never cared for the taste so I asked for a sprite which is what I always drink this is cool as the group always knows there is a designated driver available. Actually we have a couple girls who don’t drink. Funny as when I first went out I was more nervous about the fact I was in a club or bar and not drinking then being dressed as Susan. Well she brought me my drink and we talked a little more before she went back to her friends.

By now it was 7:45 and some of the girls started to show up, Victoria, Cassandra and Robin. Robin came with Cassandra and she was so excited. She has just moved here from I think Hawaii and found our group. Being out with a bunch of girls makes it way easier, I think she had a smile on her face the whole night long which got me thinking about when I first started going out and the excitement I felt. It was all so new and exciting and now several years down the line the excitement has been replaced with comfort in who I am. Starting out we all wonder what our dressing means, are we gave, transsexual or just strange and society tries to tell us how we should conform and who we should be, if you crossdress you are not normal. This is not true we are all normal and just doing what we feel is right for us. Meeting all my wonderful friends and seeing I am not alone and hearing al their different stories make all the difference. I am just your typical straight male who likes all the same things other males like, sports, fishing, hiking and woman with one extra thing, I like to look pretty and act like a woman part time and I am totally okay with who I am. Self acceptance which is the key to a long, happy and healthy life.

Well more girls showed up including Jenn, Jan and Lynn and we had a good turnout again, maybe 2o of us. Well it was time for shuffle board so Jenn and I played Cassandra and Jan in a game. Cassandra and Jan got of to an early and big lead but Jenn and I worked hard to make a comeback. We scored 13 points in a row to almost tie it up but Jan scored 6 on her last throw which gave them the win, yes Cassandra has won two games now, one each week.

Now it was time for some conversation which Susan loves, funny as my male self sitting around and talking is not high on my list of things to do but Susan enjoys it, just one of the differences between my two sides. It is funny the things we learn about each other. I know where most of the girls live, what they do for a living and where they work; all about their families and they know the same about me. The one thing most of us don’t know is what our male names are. I guess a couple of the girls know my male name and I do know a couple of theirs but really our feminine sides is really who we are to each other and I am fine with that.

Well it was getting late and girls were starting to leave and Kim showed up. She got here really late but as they say better late than never. She is really nice and totally accepts us which is always great. Kim, Victoria, Robin and I sat at a table and talked and yes Robin still had a great big smile on her face even after being out for 5 hours with us. It was nice to catch up with Kim and find out what was new in her life. It is funny as when we are sitting there just talking and for the most part when we are just out I am not really a wear of the fact I am dressed as a woman. I am just out being myself and really never think about it unless someone brings it up. Susan is just as much a part of me as my male self and I think both make me who I am. Without both sides I would not be the person I am. Even with the differences between the two sides, both parts of me shape who I am be it Susan or ****. I think once I figured that out was when I became a complete person.

Saturday night the group is going to Harvey’s but I am going to a BBQ at Rachel’s. I hope the weather is nice as I have a cute top I want to wear but also have another choice that is almost as cute but a little warmer which I think will be the one I wear. The BBQ is not a t-girl event. Rachel is a friend who accepts me and invited me over as a friend for her BBQ. I think there will be one other t-girl there, actually I should know about 3 people there but it will give me a chance to work on my mingling skills.

Any way thanks for reading and have a wonderful weekend.

Out at Starbucks again

Well it has been another busy week for my male self but I found time for a relaxing evening at Starbuck’s. Stefia one of my friends e-mailed me to see if I was going as she was going to be out and wanted to meet up with me so that really motivated me to get out tonight. Plus with the forecast of rain I knew it would be easier to get out because my neighbor kids would not be outside. Well it turned out the weather was nicer then they forecast and of course all 5 neighbor kids were out front playing while I got ready. Well by the time I was ready to leave I could not see them but always a chance they were just down the street. Well I had to take the chance and pulled out and did not see them so I was on my way.

I got to Starbuck’s about 6:45 and they were really busy, just one table right up front by the door. I got my drink and the girl at the counter commented on my nail polish. It is the Pompeii Purple from OPI which is just a really nice color. Well I sat down and it wasn’t long before Stefia showed up. It was nice to chat with her, we talked a lot about the Vanity Club, she was the one who nominated me. We had a good time and she stayed till about 8 before she had to leave. Hopefully we can get together again maybe for dinner. Stefia and Jenn want to try Sweet Basil in Portland for dinner. I have been there once before and had a good time so maybe all 3 of us can go.

Well after she left I caught up on some e-mails and had a nice quiet relaxing time here. Starbuck’s is a nice relaxing place to go for a few hours and sure beats just sitting at home dressed. I was trying to figure out how long I have been coming to Starbucks and I think it is almost 3 years now. Funny as I never go here as my male self but Susan enjoys it so much.

Well this weekend will be a busy one for Susan as I will once again be out with my friends at the P-Club Friday night which is always a fun night. Nothing starts the week like spending time with friends. Hopefully we will have a good turnout. Saturday night our group is going to Harvey’s Comedy club which is always fun but I will miss this month. One of my friends Rachel is having a BBQ and she invited me. It has been months since I have seen her so it will be so much fun. Now this is not a T-girl event as she is inviting all her friends. I know one other T-Girl Teresa who will be there and a couple of others who will be there that I know. It should be a fun night and I will also see Penelope who I have not seen since last year’s BBQ. It will be great to talk with them and catch up and I will have to try to talk them into coming out again with our group. I am planning on taking a veggie tray and still trying to think of something else I can take. I also already know what I am going to wear. Something casual and cute and of course will have to tone down the makeup.

Well tonight I need to stop and do a little shopping as I have not had time for that, just too busy. I also noticed my foundation is starting to get low so that means a trip to Nordstrom’s as I use MAC foundation and I just like Nordstrom’s. I may even look around the mall while I am there but that will be my next week outing I think.

Well must get back to my e-mails as my battery is almost dead and Starbuck’s closes in about 20 minutes. Thanks for reading and have a great night.

Friday night with my friends

Well it was another long week for Susan and the weekend is not much better but I was going to make sure I went out with my friends on Friday night. Now tonight I had a new obstacle to get by. My neighbors across the street are having a garage sale this weekend so lots of people on my street and their whole family plus other neighbors are sitting out in their front yard. I figured I would worry about this after I was dressed, actually hoping they would all be gone when I was ready to leave. Well I was all dressed and looked out the window and as luck would have it they were putting the last of their stuff back into the garage, how lucky was this. Put my nails on and got my purse and their garage door was shut and no one outside. 6:45 and I was out the door.

I got to the P-Club and Cassandra and Chris were already there. The P-Club has changed their menu again; they have cut their selection including the P-Club salad. Anyway we were all hungry so we all ordered; I got the chicken strip basket which is also really good.

Soon a few more girls showed up, Michelle and Victoria. Well Victoria wanted to play pool and yes I agreed to play her. Now I will admit I am not a very good pool player but I was having a good night. I made some really good shots and wound up winning. Next I played Chris and again I was making some really good shots that is till I got to the 8 ball. I just couldn’t sink it even though Chris still had 4 balls to sink. In the end we were both down to the 8 ball and I missed my shot that really wasn’t that hard. Chris took his shot and can you believe it he sunk the cue ball and I won again. My third game was against Bobby. Again I was making really good shots and once again I was down to the 8 ball and just couldn’t sink it but this game Bobby didn’t scratch and won but I had a really fun time.

More girls showed up but still a smaller turnout than normal, maybe 12 but a lot of fun. Well it was now time for shuffle board, Cassandra and Trish challenged me and Victoria to a game. Shuffle board is such a fun game and 4r people can play. It was a good game but this week Cassandra and Trish won. Now what makes this so funny is Cassandra is so competitive in everything she does and is really good at pool but almost never wins at Shuffle board so she was so excited.

Now it was time for some good conversation and girl talk. I really like chatting with the other girls. Even a few of the regulars came over and talked with us. Funny how I still refer to them as regular as we have been going there for two years now so I guess that makes us regulars also. The truth is the P-Club is a very safe and friendly place to go. I think that is why our group has grown so much. It was a really fun night and I had planned on making it an early night as I had to be to work by 8 am Saturday morning but as always I was having so much fun with my friends that I stayed till close 2 am.

Saturday night was our monthly social that Cassandra and Peggy put on at their home. I was planning on going as I hoped to be home from work by 5 but didn’t get home till almost 6:30 and at that point figured it wasn’t worth going as it would have taken me till almost 8 to get Susan ready and than almost an hour drive to get there so I passed as I also have to be up early Sunday morning so just the one time out this week for Susan.

This coming week I hope to get out to Starbuck’s but will be out Friday night at the P-Club and Saturday at a BBQ. Any way thanks for reading and have a great weekend.
