My life as a heterosexual crossdresser.

P-Club with friends before Diva Las Vegas

Well as normal I was out with my friends at the P-Club Friday night. I got there a by 7:30 and there were already a couple girls there. It wasn’t long and others started to show up and soon we had about 15 to 20 from our group there. It is always so nice to see so many out and I think that is what is so great about our group “Rose_City_T-Girls”.

We all had dinner and enjoyed some nice girl talk. After we ate Melissa and I played as partners at shuffle board. We played a couple games and won them both. Some of the girls were also playing pool. The P-Club really does have a lot for us to do, pool, shuffle board, ping pong and dancing.

Besides our group this week the P-Club was really busy which was nice to see. After last week this was nice as it shows our group is not affecting business. Throughout the evening several of the regulars came over and talked with us plus Cassandra also went up and started conversations with a couple of GG’s there. Cassandra is so good at this as she makes it look so easy, This is something I need to work on as I really would love to be able to just walk up to a complete stranger and strike up a conversation.

The night went by so fast and soon it was 2 am and time to leave. It was such a fun night and hard to believe that I will not be out with my friends for 3 weeks as the next 2 Fridays I will be gone on my way to and from Diva Las Vegas.

Diva Las Vegas starts in just 8 days (April 3) and I will leave for my trip down this coming Friday. I get my nails done Thursday night and from that time till I get home (April 1 to 11) living full time as Susan. The time in Las Vegas will be easy but the trip down and back will be a little harder but I am determined to do the whole trip as Susan just like last year. It is strange as I have been really looking forward to this sense last year and now it is almost here. There is still time to register to attend (closes March 30) if you want to go.

Awesome Friday with friends

Well it was an awesome Friday, after getting home late from work I started by calling the nail salon I go to Nails by Lily and set up my appointment to get acrylic nails for my trip to Diva Las Vegas the night before I leave. Now I can’t wait, my appointment is early enough that I can still go to Starbucks afterwards so it will be fun night. Diva Las Vegas starts 2 weeks from tomorrow so there is still time to go if anyone wants to.

Well our group was back at the P-club on Friday night and we had another huge turnout, maybe 25 or so and I was so happy to be there after missing last week. Going out with my friends is such a big part of who I am and I don’t often think about it till you miss a week and then you realize how important they are. While I am at Diva Las Vegas I know I will have so much fun but will also miss 2 Friday nights in a row so I will go 3 weeks without seeing them and that will be hard although I will be able to keep up with the group through e-mail.

I talked with several of the girls last night and they are all interested in going to Diva Las Vegas next year, this year just didn’t work for them but right now I think there are 5 who have said they want to go next year so I am already thinking of that as I will go again next year. It would be so fun if 5 to 8 of us all went down for it, just think of the fun we would have.

The P-club was pretty quiet last night, besides our group maybe 15 other people which is the slowest I have ever seen it. I really think it has nothing to do with our group being there as we have been going there for maybe 8 months now and I doubt if it would drop that much in one week, I think the fight that broke out last week may have been part of it. I was not there and no one from our group was involved. What I heard happened was to GG’s were talking when one told the other she looked like a slut and well it all went downhill from there. They started fighting and then the guy’s with them got involved and I guess in the end they had 5 police cars there. No one is sure if anyone got arrested. I think maybe people just stayed away for the night, will be interesting to see what it is like next week. I will be there for sure as I will miss the next 2 Friday’s after that.

Wilma and I played as partners again in shuffle board, the game was close but we lost. I think missing a week I was a little off my game but still a lot of fun. We had hoped to play Cassandra as she is the one everyone wants to win against as she is so competitive in everything she does.

Alice came up from Salem which was an awesome surprise, sometimes she can go months without being able to come up and join us so I always look forward to her visits. I got to talk with her some but not as much as I would have liked, one of the problems with such a big group as you really want to try to meet and talk with everyone. I guess we just need longer Friday nights.

Peggy was also there which is always fun, she started a new job a while back and as such has not been able to get out with us as much. She brought my Avon order. She is my Avon lady also so if you need Avon check out her web page. You can now order and the will ship to you so you don’t even need to live in the area, how cool is that. I was almost out of my favorite lipstick and thought they had discontinued it but they are back in the book which made me happy as one I think is a great daytime lipstick for me. It is called Beyond Color plumping lip color; I like the Twig for day and the Divine wine for evenings. I am not sure if they plump your lips but they do really condition them. They use to have a clear conditioner that I wear every day, looks just like I have Chap Stick on and I have not had chapped lips in 2 years sense I found these. Opps a little sales pitch.

Anyway it was a supper fun night just being out with all my friends. So many pictures were taken that I never even got my camera out but I am sure once they get posted I will include some of the pictures either in this blog or another as it has been a while sense I included a picture. Funny thing about pictures, as a guy I tend to avoid them, don’t care for my picture being taken. Susan on the other had lights up and smiles for the camera. It is still strange to me all these little differences between my male and female side.

Have a great week and hope to be at Starbuck’s Tuesday so that should be my next post. Have a great week.

Fun Friday night out with friends

I want to stop for a moment and say how important good friends are. One of our members of our group was hospitalized Thursday and when that happens one always thinks about family and friends and loved ones. I think sometimes we get so use to others being there and then when something happens it catches you off guard. All our thoughts and prayers are with Jan and we hope she makes a fast recovery. Jan’s wife came out with us last night because she didn’t want to be alone which just shows how close our group here in Portland is, we are really more like a family and care about each other. We may not always say how much someone means to us and that is sad as you never know what will happen in the future. I hope you all know how special you all are to me.

Well as I said it was a fun night out, what else can you expect when you are out with really good friends. We had a really good turnout again, over 20 t-girls which is just awesome that we get so many out especially when you think that the group goes out and Sunday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday and Wednesday is the biggest followed by Friday. We really do have an active group of girls here and I think that is what makes our group so successful.

We started off with dinner and conversation which I always enjoy, getting to know each other better and a little more about them I think is really important. It is so funny as a guy I am not really into just sitting around and talking but as Susan I love it, just another difference between the 2 sides of me.

Later on Wilma and I played as partners in shuffle board and we did really good. We won 4 games in a row beating Cassandra’s and her partner twice. That is when you know you played well as Cassandra is so competitive in everything she does. In game 5 we were ahead and only needed 1 point to win and the other team needed 3. I had 3 of my pucks in play for a total of 5 points (one 3 and the other two 1 each). On Michele’s last roll she got hers down and knocked 2 of mine off including the 3 and left hers right on the 3 point mark to win it was a really awesome shot and what a way to end the game. Some of the girls played pool while others danced. In all it was a fun night.

Wilma had her chess board so Jennifer and I played a game I was out in the lead so Cassandra took over for her. She said she could take over and win but I don’t think she really looked at the board before she said that because I was way out in the lead. In the end I won. Cassandra and I played another game. I made a good showing but in the end I lost. I made a couple bad moves but even if I hadn’t I probably still would have lost but it was a lot of fun. Anyway we stayed till closing and then all left for home. I think we still had 9 of us there what a great time.

Well here is another plug for Diva Las Vegas. They will start their sign up for events this coming week so if you have not made your plans to attend now is the time. You can actually register till the end of March but I think this year will be their biggest year yet.

Well

A cold night out for the girls here in Portland.

Well it was another Friday night out for Susan, our group was meeting at the P-Club again as we all really like this place as they have so much to do and the staff is just wonderful to us. The weather has been cold with a little snow midweek which is all gone now but it is really cold out. The temperatures were going to be around 17 over night so I decided long pants and a sweater top was the way to go especially sense Susan does not have a really warm coat. I got there around 7:40 and just the walk from the parking lot around to the front door I was cold, I think it was the wind that really did it.

There was already about 10 girls already there at which point I knew we would have a good turnout. It just amazes me that we can get so many T-Girls to go out to a straight club at one time, I really think it is wonderful and gives us all a chance to interact with people who may never have a chance to meet a T-Girl. Every week now it seems someone from the club comes over and talks to us and tells us they like us being there; now I know those who don’t like us there probably will never say anything to us so we won’t know that. But the positive feedback we get is wonderful. Well I sat down nice and warm and started chatting with the girls and it wasn’t long and my feet were cold, didn’t stop to think to wear warmer shoes and I guess with the cold weather open toed heels were not the best choice but they do look cute.

There has been a lot of talk in our group, the Rose_City_T-Girls about putting a calendar together with some of our pictures on it. Maybe even trying to sell them for a charity. Not sure if anyone would really buy them but it generated a lot of posts to our group. Well Cassandra put one together just to see what it would take and how it would look. Back at super bowl we all voted on the best pictures from the group over 4,000 pictures in the group I guess we all like having our pictures taken. She used the top 12 vote getters. I was lucky enough to have one of mine in. The pictures were voted not so much how you looked but the overall look of the picture. My picture was from last Year’s Diva Las Vegas trip, I don’t normally drink but while we were in Las Vegas I promised Peggy and Cassandra I would have a couple drinks with them. The picture that made it was me at the NASCAR café with a beer in one hand and a shot in the other.

Jennifer and I got a chance to talk about her shopping trip last weekend, her and Barb went shopping for the day, her first time out shopping as Jennifer. She had so much fun.

Peggy showed up so we chatted for awhile about her new job, sounds like it is going well for her which I knew it would. She couldn’t stay long but it was great to see her again.

Melissa was there also and had a smile from ear to ear as she has a job interview this coming week and is so excited about it. She is working part time and this job will be full time and more responsibility. Just like Peggy I know she will get the job.

Later on we started to play shuffle board which is always fun and getting up on my feet warmed them up. I played several games and my team won them all. A couple from the club came over and wanted to play so they played the winners which was my team. Their names were Lori and Brian and they were so awesome. My team won again so they got back in the list to play again and we also won the second game against them. The third game Brain wanted to switch partners so he and I partnered up for the game and again we won. They were just wonderful.

We also had a new girl, her first time out in public, she drove up from Eugene. Her name is Misty and what is cool is she was looking for some place to go and came across my blog here on WordPress and read about us going to the P-Club so she just came up to join us. I started my blog as a way I could keep track of what I was doing never really thinking it would reach others. Any way I got a chance to talk with Misty and she seems really nice and we all hope she can come out with the group more. Misty if you read this in the about Susan section on the right of the main page you can find links to my yahoo, facebook page or the Rose_City_T-Girls group. Get a hold of me or the group and we will send you information on joining the group. The main rule is you have to have a picture either in a yahoo profile or the group and sense there were many pictures taken last night I am sure you will have a picture in the group.

Well I think we left around 1:30am so it was another late night, it just seems to go by so fast that you don’t realize how late it is. It was even colder out when we left then when we got there but the wind had died down so it didn’t feel as cold but I was glad when my car finally heated up and I could turn on the heat.

I hope to get out to Starbucks this week but at this point not sure which night or even if I can but if I do I will blog about it. Have a great week everyone.

One last note is that I have had almost 1700 views this month, wow I never thought my little blog would do this. Thanks to all who stop by and read and please feel free to leave a comment or ask me a question.

Going out in public to a club, so much fun.

Well as normal now on Friday nights our group all met at the P-club here in Portland. It really is a nice place with good parking and a wonderful staff, I can’t say enough about the girls and even the guys who work there and how wonderful they are to us. They also have so much to do there that everyone has fun and can find something to do. As I posted in one of my previous blogs there is the question to if we are affecting business well last night was one of the busiest nights I have seen there in a long time so I have to believe we are not driving away business.

We always have a fun time and Friday night we had a huge turnout, I tried to count but as I said there is so much to do we had girls all over the place so I could not get an accurate count but would guess 25, maybe a couple more.

It was really nice as Diane was in town and made it out with us. She lives in North Carolina. She gets to town maybe once a month for work and always finds time to come out with the group. She is so fun to hang out with and all the girls love her, I think that is why we had such a great turn out as everyone wanted to see her again. It is funny a girl (GG) named Evie was there, we met her and her friend Lisa back in December when we were there, you can see a picture of us on my flickr page. Any way I have seen Evie there several times and she always remembers my name but always asks where Diane is. Well when she saw Diane her and her friend came over and talked to us and then her and Diane sat for maybe an hour talking.

Melissa showed up with a new wig, long brown and she looked so cute in it. She has such a bubble personality and is so fun to hang out with, she is a GG that just loves our group and goes out with us all the time. It is so nice to have accepting people around you; it just makes you feel good.

Alicia also made it out which was nice as I can’t think of the last time we have been out on the same night so it was good to talk to her again. She brought a friend (GG) with her and I think her name was Vera, I really hope I remembered that right as I joked with her that we would have a test on all our names and she really do a good job throughout the night remembering us by names and she had a lot more of them to remember than I did. I guess I can always use the I am Blonde excuse if I got it wrong.

Christie also made it out for her first time to the P-club which in a way is strange as she lives only a couple blocks away. But she has been so busy that the time she has to get out is limited and as she works Saturday morning Friday nights are hard to get out. I really know how that goes as that is why I don’t go out with the group mid week. It was nice to get to see her again.

Any way we all had a great time and I played many shuffle board games some with Diane as my partner and a couple with Robin. Robin and I beat Cassandra and Christy which was so fun as Cassandra is so competitive so any time you can beat her it is a good night. Diane and I won several game till we lost to Cristine and Michelle. Wow this was such an upset as Diane and I were way ahead, won’t say by how much (20 to 4), well I guess I will. We only needed 1 point to win as we play to 21. Can you believe it we could not get that 1 point, we ended up losing 21 to 20. They suddenly got hot and we couldn’t score.

Again it was a late night and we closed down the club again leaving at 2 am. That is late for this old gal but once a week I can still handle.

Well now on to Diva Las Vegas. It is getting closer every day now and I am so looking forward to it. I have been looking at hotel rates and they have some pretty good ones. So far the cheapest (nice) hotel I have found is the Gold Coast Hotel & Casino which is just a couple blocks off the strip right now they have rates as low as $28 + tax & resort fee, for the Sunday night through Friday night (6 nights) it is $220 + tax & fee, which is really a good rate. This is where Cassandra, Peggy and I were planning on staying. It is not one of the recommended hotels but we are free to stay where we want and there may be others from Diva Las Vegas staying there. The other choice I have found is the Imperial Palace Hotel Casino, which is right on the strip. There rates are a little higher $340 + tax no resort fee for the same 6 nights. Now this is a recommended hotel for Diva Las Vegas and it has been used every year sense Diva Las Vegas started in 1997 and from the postings on the Diva Las Vegas group this looks like the place most will stay.

As it stands now it looks like I will be the only one from Portland going so I am leaning towards the Imperial Palace Hotel Casino, it may be a little more but I know there will be others there attending Diva Las Vegas so I am willing to spend a little extra for that. I still have it posted in the group and a couple have said they might go but won’t be able to confirm till the first part of March. I don’t want to wait that long to make reservations so I think that I will make my reservations this week and then if others go it will be up to them to make reservations for themselves, of course my reservation will be for 2 so if only one other wants to go they can always split the room with me.

Now originally we had planned on leaving Friday April 1 and Driving to LA and spending 2 nights there and probably one night in LA on the way home. If I go on my own I may not do that. I think I would leave Saturday and drive to Reno and spend one night there and do the same on the way home. This will add 2 more nights in Reno on a Saturday which will be a much higher rate, I have not checked those hotels yet but would guess $100 a night being Saturday night. Going through Reno is the shortest distance driving and it happens to be a little over the half way point. It is about a 9 to 10 hour drive to Reno and about 8 hours to Las Vegas from Reno, both drives I can do by myself very easy as several years ago I made the drive to Reno by myself. I am still planning on doing the whole trip as Susan as I did last year. I know it will be a fun trip though and can’t wait for it.

They have over 160 registered for Diva Las Vegas now and I am sure more will sign up. If you have ever wanted to go out in public and have fun this is the place, remember what happens on Vegas stays in Vegas unless you are in a picture with me then it will probably get posted some place unless you tell me not to. Oh yah you also may be in my blog.

Possible issue with our group at the P-club, still a fun night.

Well Friday night we all met again at the P-club for our normal group outing. Y the time I got there several of the girls were already there and in heavy conversation. Seems the girls working there mentioned that the owner was looking at the numbers on the nights we come in to see how or if we are affecting business. So we talked about this for awhile. This kind of put a damper on the evening for a while.

I was thinking back to the first night we went there and can really see no difference in the number of people there as a matter of fact last night seemed busier than normal. It makes you wonder if with the down economy they are just looking for some reason why business is down and may have nothing to do with us. Now the employees have been just wonderful to us and always treat us great. As a matter of fact we had several people come up to our group last night and talk to us and tell us how they liked us there which made me think the girls working the bar may have told some of the other customers about it and they wanted to make us feel welcome. As far as I know there has never been any complaints, and no one has said anything to our group in a negative manner although I guess if someone did not like us there they may not say anything to us and go to the owner. Any way we plan on giving it a few weeks and see what happens. Well enough of that.

We had a good turnout probably about 12 to 15. I finally got to meet Bobbie; she belongs to our group but lives in Idaho. She comes over every once in a while but has never been on a night I could get out so that was nice. Her wife came with her but couldn’t make it out Friday, they will both be out Saturday night but of course I can’t make it so will have to wait to meet her wife.

About 9 we all moved up by the pool tables so some could play pool and shuffle board. Peggy and I played Shuffle board against Cassandra and Michelle. We lost but had a lot of fun. Later we played a second game, this one was really close but in the end we lost. A few of the other customers (Catherine and I couldn’t even begin to guess at how to spell the other two girls names) came up and asked about playing so at the end of our game we gave them the table so they could play. They were so awesome and asked me to help them as they had not played before, so I explained how the scoring worked. Two of them had me take pictures of them and even wanted pictures with me and you all know how I like to have my picture taken. We all had a blast. I even filled in for a couple of them when they had to a break. They had no problems with me or any of our group.

Later on I got pulled out on the dance floor, now I am not a dancer and feel very awkward on the dance floor and feel everyone is staring at me. Now I know this makes no sense, that I would be worried what people thought of my dancing but not the fact I am crossdressed. I can’t explain it either. Now I had on my 4″ heels so I only lasted a couple songs but it was fun and good exercise which this girl needs. It was so funny as it was Brooke, Barb, Jennifer, Wilma, Peggy and me from our group and maybe 8 other girls from the club on the dance floor. At one point one man did come out to dance but it was defiantly a girl’s dance party. Now there were pictures taken I picked out one just to prove the fact I can dance, just not well. I look so stiff but maybe in time I will get better at dancing. If I am going to dance more I need shorter heels on those nights.

Later on the girls that I helped with shuffle board came back and talked to us. They were so fun to chat. It is so nice to have some of the regulars come up to us as it made us feel welcome and part of the bigger group. If there is a problem with us being there I have to believe it is a small amount of people but as they are probably the ones who speak up. Now I did get a few pictures with Catherine before we left, and of course just have to include one. Wish I had gotten pictures with the others.

Saturday night our group is going back to Harvey’s Comedy club but unfortunately I can’t make it. So sad as we always have a wonderful time there. I think there are 12 going and I know they will have fun. Well I hope to get back to Starbuck’s Wednesday this week so that may be my next posting and of course again next Friday with my awesome friends.

Thanks for reading and have an awesome week.

Diva Las Vegas here I come.

Well On Friday night I went out to the P-club to meet all my friends for a fun night out. I so look forward to it all week long but more on that later. I thought I would start off with Diva Las Vegas.

Diva Las Vegas starts on Sunday April 3 through Friday April 8 2011 if anyone is thinking of going. I went last year and had such a fun time, you can check out all of my photos including a ton of golf pictures on my Live profile. I spent the whole trip from start to finish as Susan so much fun. The last numbers I saw was they were up to 140 registered for this year and they are guessing between 180 and 200 this year, last year was a record attendance with I think 178. Now unlike other transgender events this is more of a vacation. Registration is free, yes you heard right free and you only pay for what you want to participate in, go out to dinner you pay for yours, go golfing (so much fun) you pay for your round of golf, go out to a club you pay for you drinks. It truly is no different than going on vacation with friends accept you can dress and go out with others as much or as little as you want. Also as this is really out in mainstream the whole group is never together all in the same spot, they have so many things that you can choose to do or you can do as little as you want and spend the time on your own or with those you went with. Wow the girls who came up with this idea were light years ahead on getting out. Also this attracts transgendered (and supporters, admirers) from all over the world. Your only real costs are for the trip, Plane fair if you fly and hotel and food. Last year we stayed at the Sahara and I think the 6 nights we were there Sunday night through Friday night was about $300, we have priced a few hotels (Gold Coast, Sahara, Imperial Palace) and it looks like somewhere between $280 and $350 for this year. I think for me last year I spent about $700 between my share of gas going down 6 nights in Las Vegas, 3 nights in LA and one show we went too plus food was in addition as I couldn’t track that expense. Well that is my little sales pitch.

Last year Cassandra, Peggy and I went and had a ball and planed on going again this year. I am defiantly going again but Peggy got a new job which is so great as she has been out of work for a long time, way to go Peggy. Well with that she will not be able to go with starting a new job, kind of hard to take a week and a half off just starting to work and with that Cassandra may not be able to go. a couple other girls in the group are thinking about going so I hope they check out the links to Diva Las Vegas and my pictures from last year. It is truly a wonderful time. Right now the plan is to leave Portland on Friday April 1 and Drive to LA and go out there on April 2 and then on April 3 drive to Las Vegas. Spend the whole week April 3 – 8 in Las Vegas and then on Saturday April 9 leave Las Vegas and head home, probably stop again in LA for Saturday night and then drive home to Portland on Sunday the 10. Now the LA part may change if I go by myself but the Las Vegas part will stay the same.

Well back to Friday night. we had a good turnout again about 15 of us from the group. Some of us had dinner including me as I didn’t get a chance to eat as I was running late when I got home from work. This was nice as we all sat around and chatted. Later on we all moved up by the pool tables and some of the girls played pool, some played shuffle board including me. I really like the shuffle board as we are all new to the game in the group so we are all pretty evenly matched so no one really has an advantage. I think I played 7 games and by the end my feet were ready for me to sit down, I wore my 4″ heels again as they are my favorite shoes really cute. Jennifer and Brooke were out on the dance floor a lot more this week so I guess the music was better for dancing than last week. Everyone had a great time and we are already looking forward to next Friday night

A couple of the regulars came over and talked with us again which is always nice as it means we are becoming more accepted there. First was Cindy, we met her a couple weeks ago, she was very nice and I even got a picture with her that night. The other was Lisa and I think we met her a couple months ago. Now I know what you are all thinking how can I remember their names and when we met, one word blog. That is part of the reason for my blog, to record for myself what I do and who I meet as Susan. A few pictures and post in a blog and there you have it, I can look back on things I have done.

Okay I am going to point out the differences between my male and female side again. It is strange as a male I have no interest in doing a blog (diary), don’t know what I would write or say and it just seems such a waste of time. Now Susan loves to post to her blog (diary). As a matter of fact even before I started a blog I kept a dairy on my computer of times I dressed up as Susan, then when Yahoo 360 came along I started there. I really liked yahoo 360 and when they closed it was sad but now I think it was good as it forced me to look around for a new blog and I found WordPress. I really like WordPress, and I did try a few others but WordPress just seemed better to me for what I wanted on a blog. If you have never tried doing a blog I would recommend you give it a try. It is a great way to express yourself.

Well must get ready for work now. I will post again soon as Susan has a Super bowl party tomorrow to go to. I will updaste my blog when I get a chance and let you know how the party was. Have a great week.

Shuffle board, Pool and Dancing at the P-club

Well it was another fun Friday night out with friends at the P-Club. Our group really seems to like this place because it really offers so much to do. We have such a big group going out now on Fridays it really is nice as it keeps us all busy. I got there at 7:30 and their parking lot was full, found one spot on the back end so I figured they would be busy but when I got inside there really weren’t that many people there. There were about 5 from our group already there including Melissa who brought her mom (Andrea) and one of her mom’s friends (Staci). It was amazing how much Melissa and her mom looked alike, at first I thought it was her older sister. Turns out I am older than Melissa’s mom by a few years; boy does that make someone feel older.

Any way soon more girls started to show up and we once again had 4 tables. Peggy made it tonight, she has been out of town for awhile so it was nice to see her and talk. She has a job interview Saturday and she really wants to get the job and it sounds like a great job. I really hope she gets it even though this will change our plans for Diva Las Vegas. Starting a new job I doubt if she could get over a week off to go. I still plan on going though as I had so much fun last year. We are a little over 2 months away if you are thinking of going (http://www.geekbabe.com/dlv/ )chek out their web page.

Well about 9:30 Andrea (Melissa’s, mom and Staci) were getting ready to leave they came over and sat down by Maya and I and we started talking. This was all new to them and they had few questions. Turns out Staci and I talked for about an hour more, she had some questions and soon we were just talking. They were both so awesome so of course there had to be pictures taken as you can see. God I look so pale compared to them, I really need to get out and get some more sun. Maybe we can get some warmer weather and some sun shine so I can get some much needed sun.

Alice showed up about 10 pm which was great as I have not seen her sense last spring. She doesn’t get out that often so it was great she could come join us. We talked for a bit which is always nice. Soon it was my turn to play Shuffle board and Maya was my partner in doubles. We had so much fun and the two of us were on fire. We won 5 games in a row two of which we blew the other team away. The table was in really good condition and very consistent which made it nice. Of course I had worn my 4″inch heels and by the end of the fifth game I really needed a break so we gave up the table so I could sit down. So we finished the night undefeated.

The rest of the night I sat around and talked with the girls which is also fun to do. I got a chance to talk with Penelope for a while. We both tried to figure out when the last time we saw each other and we think it was over a year. Jennifer and Brook were out on the dance floor for a bit but they said the music wasn’t as good this week. As I am not a dancer I couldn’t tell so just have to trust them. Jennifer was taking all kinds of pictures so I hope to have more to post later once she uploads them to the group.

Again Alice and I got a chance to talk again and this time I bet we talked for 45 minutes or more. I was trying to think when we first met but this old girls memory is not that good anymore but I know it has been several years. She is my oldest friend that I am still in contact with and she was the first girl that I e-mailed to. Wow will have to look back through some old pictures and see if I can figure it out. I think she is one of the girls who helped me start going out more.

Well we had a great night and I would guess 20 to 25 girls were there so we had a really good turnout. We again stayed till they were closing and then we all said our goodbyes and headed home. I think we had about 10 of us still there at closing. Such a fun night. I hope to make it out to Starbucks either Wednesday or Thursday night this week if things work out but will for sure be out with the group next Friday at the P-Club. Have a great week and thanks for reading.

Friday 1-21-11 at the P-Club

Well Friday night came and Susan was already to get out with her friends at the P-club. This is now our regular Friday night place to go. The employees there are so wonderful to us and even the customers treat us well, as a matter of fact the more we go there the more we get to know them and most of them treat us just like any other regular there. We had a good group about 12 to 15 of us there. It seems we always have a good turnout of Friday nights but Wednesday still seems the night most of the girls get out, of course as this girl has to work early during the week Friday is my night out with the group. I was talking with Cassandra and we are amazed that Saturday is not a bigger night as you would think that would be the night everyone gets out. I guess we do things a little different here in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.

Anyway I started off playing pool and won my first game, well actually Robin scratch on the eight ball but still it was a win. The next two games I won and yes I sunk the eight ball right where I called it. The last game I played was the closest as we were both on the eight ball and I had a really hard shot that I knew I could not make but went ahead and tried. I missed like I knew I would but in doing so I moved the eight ball out by the pocket and the cue ball was lined up so it was a straight shot in. I guess I should have just tapped the eight ball but it was fun and I had a good time.

They had the shuffle board game leveled this past week so we could play it and we all did. Seems someone had spilt a drink on the table and it was cleaned up but the silicon sand on the tables some of which was damp made the table very inconsistent. Sometimes the puck would just stop like it hit a wall and other times it would slide all the way to the end so it was really hard to get it just right. Broke and I played as a team and won the first game, it was close. The second game we lost but we had so much fun.

A couple of the girls played ping pong, I was going to but the heels I wore 4″ were not good for that plus by the time I thought about it I had been on my feet for a couple hours and really wanted to sit down. Several of our girls spent a lot of time on the dance floor, they are our group’s dancers and they are really good at dancing. So funny as most of the GG’s there love dancing with them. Wilma brought her chess board so her and I sat at the table and played a couple games. I lost both but we had so much fun and it has been probably 6 to 8 years sense I played chess. After that Wilma went to dance so Maya sat down and we played a game of chess, this time I won so I felt pretty good. Funny one of the girls walked over and said, “Now that’s something you don’t see in a club”. I guess she was right as I doubt many people go to a club like this and play chess but then we are not like most people, we play by our own rules which is why we go out.

We met several new people at the bar that came over and talked to us. Cassandra I think talked to them first as she is so awesome at this. She can put people so at ease and in a few minutes they are talking like they have been friends for ever. Several of the girls that talked to us and even a couple of their boyfriends were totally okay with us. One even plans on coming again next Friday when we are there. I really think our being out so much in mainstream places is helping to make people more comfortable with us and educating them as to who we are.

Saturday night’s Cass got tickets to Harvey’s Comedy club so 6 to 8 of the girls are going. I can’t make it this time, so I am little sad about that as we always have so much fun there. I know they will have so much fun though and next time I will make it. Well I have things that need to be done which Susan can’t help me with so I will sign off. Not sure when or if I will make it out this week but if I do it will be here in my blog. Have a great week and thanks for reading.

January 14 2011 at P-Club

Well it was Friday night and time to go out again with my friends. I really look forward to this all week so by the time Friday gets here I can hardly wait. We as a group have decided to make the P-Club our regular Friday night spot as we all like it, they have so much to do there and the staff is just so wonderful to us. Even the customers so far have been awesome and as far as we know there have been no complaints about us being there, as a matter of fact some of them know us now and even great us and come say hi to us when they see us.

I took a jacket with me as it was almost 60 when I left and really didn’t need it but thought it might be chilly at the end of the night when we left. I got there right at 7:30 and the parking lot was empty so I had my choice of parking spots. I went in and Chris and Roxy were already there so I joined them. They had remolded the inside of the P-club over the week so it took a little getting used to. They moved the shuffle board game upfront by the windows and put the pin ball machines down in the corner where the shuffle board game was. They also moved the ping pong table down by the dance floor which opened up the whole room so they put both pool tables in there. This really did give you more room when playing pool. Where the pool tables use to be they put tables which I think added tables so there is more seating area. They also put 4 big TV’s on the wall above the bar which had on all the different games going on. It also made it a little darker in the main part.

Any way enough about the remodel, soon girls from our group started to show up and I guess we had 12 to 15 there so it was another good turnout. They also were unusually busy as they had some kind of party that took up the 3 table’s right next to us and must have had 10 woman and 3 or 4 guys there and even the rest of the place was busy. I think maybe the busiest I have seen them sense we started going there. Now for me I am fine if they are busy or not as I do like to people watch and be out in public so the more people is good but also when they are slow it’s not as loud so you can talk easier plus not as many people trying to play pool or ping pong. I guess in the end having them be busy is better as that means we are accepted at least on some point as more people are coming in even with us there so we are not hurting their business.

For the first hour or so we all just sat around and talked and I made a real effort to try to talk a little with everyone as I really want to get to know them all better. Cassandra and I talked some about Diva Las Vegas in April and we are both all set to go. We think we will be the only ones from our group going again this year so at this point we are planning on doing the same thing we did last year, driving to LA first and going out there Saturday night and probably stopping there also on the way home. I got a chance to talk with everyone except Buffy as she could not stay late so I will have to catch her next time. Even Jennifer came out after stressing over her makeup as it was the first time she has done her own makeup and then gone out and she was so worried how she looked, she is such a girl. Anyway she looked great.

Cassandra and I were the first to play pool and I did pretty good as I was having a really good game but of course so was Cassandra so in the end she won but I only had 2 balls left and really it was a short game as I think we each only took 5 or 6 turns. After that I went to get the pucks for shuffle board but found out they had not leveled the shuffle board table yet after moving it so everything would slide off the side so it was out of service which was sad as I was really looking forward to playing the game. So I went back and talked so more with the group

Cass and Maya played some ping pong and Cass won which is rare as Maya is so good at ping pong. Wilma, Barb, Jennifer and Brooke were out on the dance floor having a ball. It was so funny, before they went out to dance no one was dancing but once they got going soon there were 8 to 1o girls out there with them and even a couple men. I guess you could say they started the dancing. It really was a fun night.

At one point I was coming out of the ladies room and ran into to ladies that our group met several months back and the one girl remembered me. Not by name of course as even I didn’t remember her name but we must have stood there in the hall by the bathrooms talking for 5 minutes. She even told me my hair looked great which was so sweet of her as I was wearing my new hair which I am still getting use to.

Later on Cass was up getting a drink and started talking to one of the ladies from the party at the next table. I don’t know how Cass does it but soon she had 4 of the girls up there talking to her and she was taking pictures with them. I really need to learn how she does this. I think she is just so outgoing that she puts everyone at ease around her. Anyway when she got back to our group she was telling us that one of the reasons they kept looking at us was we were all dressed so nicely, almost all of us had dressed or skirts on and heel and makeup. One of them told her we looked better than they did and I think they were a little jealous. That was such a great compliment.

We decided next week when we come back to get the tables up by the pool tables and shuffle board as that is the main thing we do as a group. As it got later people started leaving and soon we were the only ones there as they were putting the chairs on the tables and closing down so again we stayed out way to late but it was so fun. As we left I put my jacket on which turns out I really didn’t need as it was still 56 out at 2 am so different from last week where I had to let my car warm up to melt the ice off the windshield.

Have a great day and will post again tomorrow about the roller derby game we are going to Saturday evening.
