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.

Cinco de Mayo party 2012

Well it is Saturday night and time for our yearly Cinco de Mayo party that Kathy, Mandie and Danielle; the three of them host it each year for the last three and do a wonderful job. Well as I don’t really have any outfits that would fit with Cinco de Mayo I decided to wear my black wig and do my makeup a little more dramatic. Now being a nice day I was worried some of my neighbors might be outside and as I know they have seen a blonde driving my car having black hair this time might cause them to really look a little closer but only a couple were out down the street and I really don’t know them that well so no problems.

It was a 45 minute drive but so worth the trip. I got there right at 6:30 and there were already a few girls there and they even had a DJ playing music. Now I was going to get lots of pictures and what better way than to start with our hostess Kathy, her and Danielle had matching dresses except that Danielle’s was pink and white and very cute, I really like pink. Well the party was already off to a great start. My first stop was the bar to get a drink and what better for Cinco de Mayo than a nice cold Sprite. I know not your normal party drink but then I am not a big drinker. From there it was time for some food. There was so much food and all looked so wonderful. They had all the makings for tacos which I love so I had a few never mind how many and of course they also had wonderful deserts which this girl could not pass up. Probably why I need to go on a diet.

More girls started to show up and by 7:30 the house was full, I think this was the biggest turnout that we have had at their home. Kristy showed up in a really cute black dress and she brought a friend she had gone to high school with. Her name was Jina. Kristy had come out to her and her husband a while back and they were totally okay with her dressing so she came to the party with her to meet all of us ladies. She was a lot of fun and I enjoyed talking with her and of course there had to be a picture. We also had the same color pink toenail polish. Over her shoulder is Christy she is Diane’s friend that came out Friday night and so nice. Any way Jina and I talked about her daughter and also about why I and some of the others dress, you know just your everyday girl talk. Still not sure about the black wig on me.

Peggy could not make the party but Cassandra had a life size picture of Peggy on the wall in the living room so all the girls took turns getting their picture taken with her so it was almost like she was there. Now there were two funny things at the party and names will be left out but I just have to include them. One of the girls in the kitchen had on these really awesome 6″ heels well on the wood floor her feet slipped and she fell back on her behind, didn’t get hurt but was a little embarrassed about it. I told her no one really saw it and after a bit no one would remember it which was true as about 30 minutes later another one of the girls went to go outside to the deck and didn’t see the screen door and walked right into it and put her heel right through it. These are all such great memories as we have all done things like this at one point or another.

Robyn from Seattle was down for the party which was really nice as she doesn’t get ton Portland that often so I really look forward to talking with her when I can. She was our bar tender for a while and did a great job. Sophia and Lorna also made it too which was nice, they get out every few weeks and always nice to see them and talk with them.

Lori was also there, she is Kathy and Mandie’s friend and is also totally okay with all us ladies. She is really awesome and fun to talk with. We had a good chance to talk in the kitchen for about 20 minutes or so. We had a good talk and I explained why I dress and about all the differences between the girls. We all share the love of dressing but the reasons we dress can very as we are a very diverse group. It really is cool that there are GG’s out there that are fine with a man expressing his feminine side.

Now I really made an effort to talk to everyone there at some point and for once I think I did get a chance to talk to everyone. I even met Rosalynda for the first time. She has gone out with the group before but not on nights I have been able to go out so it was nice to actually get a chance to talk with her.

Victoria Sinclair and Petra also showed up and it has been a log times since they have made it out with the group. It was so nice to chat with them. They also brought a girl I think her name was April who was in town and had Victoria give her a makeover. She looked really good and it was nice to meet her and chat with her for a bit.

Later on Brooke even showed up and so I had to get a picture with her also. It was nice to see her out again as she has been going through a lot lately. Now I am not sure how many showed up for the party but would guess at least 50 and yes we all had a wonderful time. I wish to Thank Kathy, Mandie and Danielle for opening their home for such a wonderful party. I often wonder what their neighbors must think with all these tall girls there.

Well it was getting late and time for me to leave so I said all my goodbyes. Rosalynda lives not far from me and on my way home so I gave her a ride which gave us a chance to talk a little more. She is really nice and I hope she comes out more with the group.

It was a fun night but went by way to fast. Next Saturday will be Harvey’s comedy club and of course our normal Friday night at the P-Club. I even hope to get to Starbucks again this week.

Thanks for reading and have a great week.
