My life as a heterosexual crossdresser.

Wednesday night dinner at Rock Bottom

It is Wednesday and I am going out to Dinner with my friends, it has bee a while since I have made one of these midweek dinners with everything that has been going on the last several months so I am really looing forward to it. Now I wasn’t sure how many would make it tonight but I was still looking forward to it. Now as it has been a while, I took extra time to make sure I looked my best, yes as Susan I do care about looking my best when I go out with my friends. I was ready a little after 6 and on my way. We are eating at Rock Bottom brewery in downtown Portland, we have gone here many times and always had a wonderful time. I got downtown about 6:30 and did drive around the blocks looking for a parking spot before giving up and going to the Parking garage a block away and parking. Such a big change from 10 years ago where I had to park right in front of where I was going and never would have walked the streets of Portland at night as Susan.

I walked from the Parking garage to Rock Bottom and it was cold outside, about 40 but with a strong wind which made it feel really cold out, of course I was wearing a dress and my ankle boots. Yes, female clothes are not as warm but so much prettier. I got inside and Nicole was already there. It was great to see her again, she had told me she might make it tonight which was nice. We talked for a few minutes as we waited for others to show up, Nicole had already put our name in for a table and it was soon ready. They actually set us up with a table for 10 even though we told them probably 6. We sat down and I texted Melissa where we were as I knew she would be here tonight. Nicole and I talked for a little bit and soon Jeanie showed up. It has been a while since I have seen her. Melissa showed up just a few minutes later so we were up to 4 of us now. We ordered drinks, I had my normal Sierra Mist, yes, I am not a drinker. One of the little interesting facts about me. I go to Starbucks all the time but can’t stand coffee, I go to Bars and clubs and don’t drink alcohol. For me it is not where I go but that I am Susan and I am out with my friends.

Joanie also made it tonight, I have met her once maybe twice before so it was nice to get to talk with her again. Now we did get a group picture after dinner of us by there Christmas Tree, what a cute group of ladies. Joanie took the picture as she didn’t want to be in it. We all ordered our food and I had their Chicken Fried Chicken which is awesome. Yes, I have this every time we come here. Now the staff here is wonderful as always, we have always been treated incredibly well here by everyone.

Now we were eating our dinner when Kitty showed up, it was so nice to see her again. She also doesn’t get out much with the group. We talked a little between all of us and it was a really fun night. We finished eating and then sat and just talked for a while, we had 6 tonight for dinner. Kitty was the first to leave and a little while later Joanie left and we were down to just 4 of us again. Now I was in no hurry tonight as I have Thursday off as I have some family things, I need to take care of so I can stay out later. The 4 of us talked some more, just a fun girl’s night out. Susan really does have wonderful friends and a wonderful life.

Now after dinner while we were talking Nicole wanted a picture of her by the Christmas Tree so I took a couple of her and then of course I had to have her take a couple of me. Now they turned out pretty good, well the picture Nicole took was great it was more the way I stood. I just look at pictures of me when you can see all of me, I just think I come off looking stiff the way I stand. I really need to work on the way I pose. Now the dress I am wearing tonight is cute and I guess it is my Christmas Dress. Now by this I don’t mean I only wear it at Christmas but looking back on my blog the only other picture I have of me by my Christmas tree from 2016 I was also wearing this same dress.

Now I love this time of year and I have been listening to Christmas music now since before Thanksgiving and I put my Christmas lights up the weekend before Thanksgiving. Now for me because of this I wish people Merry Christmas but if you like Happy Holidays you are more than welcome to say that to me and I will not be offended.

Thanks for reading and be sure and read my newest blog to see what is new in my life.

Now a side note, Former President George H Bush passed away last Week and today they had his memorial service and for a brief time we came together as a country which was nice. So, my political statement is this and it is what we all want, respect. I don’t care what your political stand is or what your religious beliefs are but your rights are no more important than mine. I will not push my beliefs on you and expect the same from you. You don’t have to like the way I live my life or my views but you do need to respect my right to be who I am and I will do the same to you. If we want people to treat us this way, we need to treat others that way. The last point is respect for office. You don’t have to like your congressman, senator or president but the office they fill does deserve respect and this week we saw this probably the most we have seen in a few years. There have been a lot of people elected I didn’t vote for and didn’t like and I may have spoken out about things they did but they were still my elected official and that office deserved respect. That is the only way our form of government will work and survive. Please let’s come together as a country and not try to divide us.
