My life as a heterosexual crossdresser.

Friday and the start of my vacation

Okay, it is Friday and I am now on vacation, I have some vacation time I have to use and some things I need to do around home and of course some Susan time. Now I have done these vacations like this last year and it was a good excuse to get my nails done in a pretty color. The only problem is gel polish is not easy to get off quick and with family issues I didn’t think that was a good idea so it will be the same color Wedding dress again. I got home from work at 4 and the first thing I did was call Dream nails to get an appointment for a manicure and pedicure. Anna said she could get me in at 5:15 so I had an hour. I started getting ready right away and I was ready and out the door right at 5 so I would be a little early to my appointment.

I got to Dream nails just a few minutes later and they were busy, there was 1 lady getting a pedicure and 3 young girls, probably high school age getting their nails done and 6 other girls about the same age waiting. I was glad I had an appointment. Well Anna was running a little behind so I had to wait till almost 5:30 which was okay. A couple other ladies came in and left because of how many were here, seems they were a little short-handed tonight. Now all these young girls were getting full sets of acrylic nails and they were all excited about it which I can understand.

Anna finished up the lady she was working on and it was my turn so I sat down and Anna started to work on my nails, she asked if I wanted the same color and I so wanted to say no I wanted red but I know something could come up short notice with family and I would need to be able to switch back fast. I did tell her I didn’t want them shortened. Now I know at the end of the week I will have to file them down as they are rather long now at least for my male side. Anna removed the old gel polish and did the fill with acrylic and then it was time for my new gel polish, the young girl next to me had her nails in an oval shape and rather long and put a silver glitter polish on them. They were really sparkly which I told her and that they looked great although I am not a fan of the glittery nails. I am more the traditional reds or pinks, even the one odd color on the middle finger is not something I like. I am not saying it is ugly just not what I want even though it is really popular these days. I like the same color on all my fingers. Soon I had my beautiful nails again and it was time for my pedicure. Some of the young girls finished with their nails and others took their spots to get their nails done and the ones that were finished waited, I guess they were all together. More woman came in and some left because of the crowd others were willing to wait. It was a good night to people watch.

Anna did my pedicure tonight as all the other nail techs were busy and they had people waiting. I picked Pompeii Purple tonight which is really a pinkish red and very pretty, I usually do this color during the summer as it is a great summer color. It was so relaxing to sit there with Anna messaging my feet and legs and the chair messaging my back, worth every penny. It was a little after 7 when I was ready to leave and they still had 3 ladies waiting, so much for a 7 pm closing time.

I left the nail salon and thought about what I should do as I didn’t want to just go home and I was kind of hungry so I drove down by the mall to get a burger. Now as I drove I kept thinking about my nails and how much I wanted red for the week. Now Julie all the time gets gel polish and then she has regular nail polish put over the gel for color. I even thought about this at the salon but they were so busy but I regretted not doing it. Anyway, by the mall there was a nail salon that had an open sign so I decided I would go in. I got there right at 7:30 which was their closing time but they had a few ladies still in there and the one lady said she would do my nails. I guess you don’t turn down a paying customer, so I went and picked out a really bright red and sat down. Just for polish is only $6 what a bargain. 10 minutes later I had beautiful red nails. I sat there another 10 minutes to let them dry so I wouldn’t mess them up before leaving just before 8.

Now it was 8 and I new the Starbucks by my house was closed, most Starbucks close between 8 and 9 so I decided to go up to Mill Plain as there is a Starbucks that is open till midnight. I got there about 8:20 and wow they were packed. I parked and looked in and it looked like about 25 young people inside but it is a bigger Starbucks so I grabbed my computer and went in. I was wrong I bet there were 40 or more young people inside. I walked in and it was quiet as I walked up to the counter to order my hot chocolate. There was very little talking going on but I just minded my own business and ordered my drink. The young man behind the counter was really nice and one of the girls complimented me on my makeup and nails which I love. Any way I made the comment that they were really busy tonight which surprised me as you don’t think of a coffee shop as a place to go on a Friday night. He said yes but it is just the first Friday of the month, they have a big group of young deaf kids that come in. any way I ordered my drink and turned to walk to the 1 open table in the corner and no one was paying any attention to me.

I sat down and took out my computer and caught up on e-mails and wrote my blog for tonight. It was so awesome to see my red nails as I typed. It stayed busy till about 9:00 when some of the people left but there was still probably 20 people here and the drive through was no stop. It was a relaxing evening. Now I am looking forward to the coming week, I have some stuff to do around home and I plan on getting out as Susan, I need to find a new purse. I am going to get together with Peggy on Tuesday for lunch and some shopping and also Mikaela on Friday for some shopping. May see if some of the other girls want to get together. It will be a fun week and yes, I will probably get to Starbucks several times also. Tomorrow night we will have our dinner downtown Portland which will be fun and of course I will make the Wednesday night dinner. Okay 1 quick picture of my pretty red nails, so wish I could have them all the time.

Around 9:30 it got really busy again probably 30 or more people were inside again. I guess Friday night is the night to come to this Starbucks. I stayed here till about 11 before heading home. When I left there was probably still 30 to 40 people still here at Starbucks. I made a quick stop at Burger Kings drive through before going home. It was a good night out.

Thanks for reading and be sure and keep up with my latest adventures on my most recent blog.
