My life as a heterosexual crossdresser.

Wednesday night dinner at Mothers Bistro

It is Wednesday and that means dinner out with my friends. We are going to Mothers Bistro, we have been here many ties but they have moved to a new bigger location a few blocks away so in a way it is kind of like a new place. I really like their food so I am looking forward to it. They are what I would call mid-range on price between $9 and $28 with most in the $18 to 22 range. I got home a little late so it was a rush to get ready. I really wanted to leave by 6 as I did not know what the parking would be like at the new place. Now I can get ready in 45 minutes if I have to just not as much funs as taking my time. It was about 6:15 when I was ready and on my way. Melissa had made reservations for 7 pm for 8. We had posted in the group and had 8 say they would be there but we also had a couple maybes which makes it hard to plan.

I got downtown at 6:40 and found a parking spot one block away. It still amazes me how easily I get out of the car as Susan now. I walked to Mothers Bistro and went in, Melissa was already there. The new place is probably twice the size of the old place which is nice as the old place was always busy. Our table was ready so Melissa and I went and sat down to wait for the rest of the girls. Now of course I had to get a quick selfie as I really am trying to get a picture each time I go out. It wasn’t long and girls started to show up, Joan was first followed by Cassandra, Barb, Jennifer, Patty, Andi, and Jackie so we actually had 9 tonight.

It was nice to get to talk to everyone as we were at a round table. Jackie is from Alaska but gets to Portland occasionally and Andi is from up by Seattle and also comes to Portland. It was nice to get to talk with them again. Patty is one of our newer members and this is her first time out with the group so it was nice to get to know her, she seems really nice as are all the girls in our group. Jennifer is also one of our newer members, I think this is her 3rd time out with us so we are getting some new girls out which is awesome.

Now I got to talk more with Cassandra as she was sitting right next to me and we got talking about when we first were going out and the thrill we felt, the adrenaline rush we got, excitement, fear and so many other emotions all wrapped together. We both miss that feeling as it really was a wonderful feeling but then again now days we go where ever we want and that is also wonderful. We got on the topic as she has a t-girl friend she has been e-mailing for more than 10 years but has never met. Well this girl came out to her wife and her wife is somewhat supportive so she is going to Diva Las Vegas with us. From the sounds of it this may actually be her first time going out and Cassandra says she is so excited about it. I think back to my first Diva Las Vegas, yes, I did the whole thing as Susan from the day I left till I got home and it was wonderful but also exciting and scary at the same time. There is a big difference between going to a LGBT bar or club or maybe a small restaurant, or even a Starbucks and walking into a hug hotel casino as they are like mini cities. Going to Diva Las Vegas really opens the world to you as if you can do this you can do anything.

Our waitress came over and took our orders, she was awesome and we had her as our waitress at the old location and she remembered us of course, we are a little hard to forget. Now I was looking forward to their Chicken Parmesan which I had last time but it turns out that was a special of the month when we went there and tonight, they didn’t have it, a little bit of a letdown but as I said they have a really good menu with several things I like so it was easy to pick my second choice, BBQ pulled Pork with mashed potatoes. We all ordered and then continued talking. Even with 9 people being at a round table you could pretty much talk with everyone which was nice.

We talked about how we have grown over the years and it is funny as some of the girls in the group are my best friends and know more about me then pretty much anyone including my family. When I first met the group and made friends with some of them, I really didn’t tell them anything about me or actually I made up stuff about me (little white lies). Trust me if I had it to do again, I would not have made up things. It is a lot of work to keep it straight and eventually it catches up to you so my advice to girls just starting out, don’t make things up or lie, be honest. And by that, I mean if someone askes you something about yourself either answer it or just tell then it is not something you are comfortable telling yet and that is all you need to say. If they are interested in being your friend, they will accept this as they have been in the same spot at some point. Cassandra and Julie, I have known for years and they truly are my best friends as they really do know pretty much everything about me, we have gotten together both as our female selves and male selves, they really are ore like family. Also, Jan and Lynn as they know my male side also. I really do have so many close friends in the group, Melissa, Barb who I don’t think have met my male self yet but I would have no problem with it. Our group really is one big family and 11 years ago when I met the group I would never have though that possible. If you are in the Portland metro area, Oregon, or come to Portland you really should check out our group the Rose City T-Girls. We do require a picture of you so we know you are real but it is only visible to members. I really think it is the best group there is but I may be a little bias.

Our food came and we had a wonderful dinner with great conversation, I rally like these dinners out over going to a bar or club as you really do get to talk more and get to know each other better. It is funny as my male self I am not a big socializer or like to sit and talk but as Susan I really do like this so there are little differences between my male self and my female self. Jewelry is another one, as my male self I don’t even wear a watch but as Susan if I forget my bracelets or ring, I just don’t feel right. After dinner we sat and talked for a while before we called it a night. it really was such a fun night out and I am looking forward to my next outings. I have the next two days off and that means some Susan time and some shopping. I need a few things for Diva Las Vegas but also just want a little time out.

Now I have been thinking a lot about Diva Las Vegas and how I want to do my nails. I always get square which I like butt this year I am thinking of doing a slight coffin shape. This is how I have had them done in years past (yes these are my nails) on the left. This is what I am thinking for this year, on the right, what do you think. Well I have 2 weeks to think about it and decide.

Thanks for reading and be sure and read my most recent blog to see what is new in Susan’s life.
