My life as a heterosexual crossdresser.

Saturday night at Harvey’s

I was really looking forward to tonight and going to Harvey’s Comedy Club it is one of our groups (rosecitytgirls) most fun outings at least I think so. Our group has been going here once a month for many years now. I wasn’t sure who all were going but Cassandra told me we had 12 signed up. I started getting ready early as I figured I could go to Fox & Hound and do my blog from Friday 15623121759_5206bb505e_onight before the other girls showed up, yes a chance to be out a little longer. I was ready by 5:45 and on my way. I wore my black and gold dress tonight.

I got to Fox & Hound by 6 and they were really busy and only got busier. I had about an hour to do my blog before others started to show up, First were Jan & Lynn followed by Melissa, Laura H. and Lisa. It was good to see Melissa again. She has been getting out on Harvey’s night which is nice but would be great if she could get out more. I am hoping she will go golfing with us the end of the month. The 6 of us had a nice time talking over the next 1 1/2 hours. We stayed here till 8:30 and by this time Fox & Hound was packed, there wasn’t an open table and people were standing around so I am sure when we left our tables were taken.

Now it was a nice night right about 70 out so a very enjoyable walk to Harvey’s. I did bring my sweater as it could be a little cool out on the walk back. The 6 of us talked as we walked the 6 blocks with all the other people out walking around downtown Portland.

WE got to Harvey’s and Cristine was already there waiting for us. It wasn’t long and Sophie, Michele and her girlfriend, Cassie, Dee and Stacy showed up so we actually had 14 of us here tonight.

Soon it was time to go into the showroom for the show, It is nice to have a table all reserved. Kim was waiting for us inside and it is always great to see her. I talked with her a little while people came in and made sure she new about our new web site, she tried to join but didn’t finish so she will be joining soon. She has been in our group for a while and has always been supportive of us. Really everyone at Harvey’s looks forward to the night we come and we are always treated wonderful here. I ordered food and we talked till the show started.

The show started and it was good. They have an MC who starts the show and he was good, The featured comedian was okay but the headliner was awesome. His name was Brad Upton and he was awesome. One of the best comedians we have seen here, if you get a chance to go see him you really should and if you are looking for a fun night out in Portland Harvey’s is a good choice. Some of his jokes were so funny and think we all laughed the whole time. It was a wonderful night out for our group.

After the show we got to talk with Kim a little more she is looking forward to her trip in a few months. While we were talking a young girl came by and was taking the salt shakers off the table and I jokingly asked if she was taking them. About that time Berry the owner came over and asked if I had met her granddaughter. Berry is wanting to retire and his son is going to take over running Harvey’s I talked to her and she asked my name and I told her and she said she had read my blog. Seems more people read it then I thought. It was a nice night out.

After the show we walked back to Fox & Hounds where some of us had parked and it really wasn’t that cold out. I wore my sweater but I probably didn’t need it. It was sad to see the night come to an end as we said our goodbye’s and I headed home.

Thanks for reading

Manicure and Pedicure

Wow I really needed a manicure and pedicure, well my toes still looked god which is amazing as it has been almost 4 weeks since my last manicure and 6 weeks since my last pedicure. I was way over do. I got home and called Dream Nails to see if I could get in tonight. Annie said she would see me at 5:30 which was perfect as it was already a little after 4 and I needed time to get ready. It was about 5:15 when I was all ready. I wore my black yoga pants and a cute black and white top as this seems to be what most woman wear when they go to the nail salon. This is a picture of what I wore  from a Shopping-at-Clackamas-Town-Center-2.jpgprevious outing though as I didn’t take time to get a picture tonight. Now this really is a relaxing time for Susan as there is nothing like going and getting your nails done.

I got to the nail salon just a little before 5:30 as it is really close to where I live. Again they were busy, glad I made an appointment. Annie was just finishing up on a lady and said she would be with me shortly so I picked out my color for my toes. Now as I was looking at all the pretty colors I just couldn’t help but think about how awesome it would be to have the same color in my fingers. it really is a shame that society doesn’t think males should want to look pretty or wear pretty things. I picked out a really bright pink color for my toes, not my normal red color. I just figured it was a good choice for summer. well as I sat there 4 woman came up to pay as hey were done and all of them had colors similar to the pink I had picked out. I guess I really do think like other woman when it comes to nail color.

It was about 5:35 and Annie was ready for me. we started with a pedicure which is so relaxing. There were still 5 woman getting pedicures and I sat right between 2 of them. Getting a pedicure is so wonderful and I really do enjoy it so much. your legs and feet look so awesome afterwards and your skin feels so soft. I really think everyone should experience this at least once in their lifetime. Now I have seen men come in before for pedicures and I really think more men would get 20160806_090812[1]them if they tried it. it was the best 45 minutes you can spend. Soon I had beautiful toes again. The simple joys in life.

Now it was time for my manicure and yes my nails were a little long and I did have to file them back between nail appointments. Annie asked me if I wanted the same color I had on hem which was called first kiss which is the slightest pink color. I really wanted to say the same color I had on my toes but I knew that would cause a lot of questions at work that I really don’t want to answer. Now this week will be very busy and my hands and so I decided to go with clear pink which really is just a clear color that brings out your nails natural look.

Annie removed the old gel polish which really did hold up well, over such a long time between visits. She asked me if I wanted them trimmed back which I did as I said this coming week will be busy and I really can’t have long nails. again she trimmed them back pretty short which was sad but needed for the upcoming week. it is funny though as I have noticed when I get the clear pink she trims them way back but if I get the first kiss she leaves them longer, just an observation. Soon I had pretty shiny finger nails clear but shiny, oh how I wish they were pink. It was about 6:40 when I was done and left the nail salon.

Now of course I was out and dressed and didn’t really want to go straight home so I stopped at the Starbucks across the street. I had my computer with me and had some work to do and what better place than Starbucks and what better way than as Susan. I needed to do some work on our Rosecitytgirls.com web site so that was my first order of business before taking care of other things. It is funny as for so long I was afraid to go out as Susan especially close to where I live. But as time has gone by and I have gotten more comfortable as Susan that has changed. Both the nails salon I am going to and this Starbucks are only a couple minutes from my house. I know there is a chance I will run into someone I know at some point and I have at this Starbucks, but I just want to be able to be who I am without issue. now that doesn’t mean I am going to go out and tell everyone or try to run into people I know and if I do I am not going to walk up to them, I will still try not to be noticed. After all this is only part of my life and part of who I am so I don’t feel I need to tell everyone.

Speaking of which when I did walk into Dream Nails tonight one of the woman getting a pedicure did look like an old girlfriend, she is actually the one I first found out about Dream Nails as when we were dating she would go there, of course this was 10 years ago and as she doesn’t live in the area I don’t think she would go here anymore. but I did have that momentary moment wondering. I haven’t seen her in 10 years and I was lonely looking at her from the side. Turns out she was here getting a pedicure with her 17 year old daughter so once I herd that I was 100% sure it was not her but she did look similar. Of course now I was thinking what if she did walk in or another woman I know. When I am out as Susan if I run into someone I know I can always leave or look away or even keep my head down looking at my computer but at a nails salon there is not anything you can really do accept sit there and enjoy the moment.

It was a fun evening even if it was short. I left the Starbucks at 8 and went home but I was so relaxed and happy so it was all worth it. I think that is the key to being happy, Learn to accept yourself and who you are. It has taken me many years to learn that but it really does make life better.

Thanks for reading.

A wonderful weekend

It has been a good week and I was looking forward to Saturday night. A few of us have been working on a new web sight that we own and control and can move away from Yahoo group which really has been wonderful over the years and helped our group grow. Saturday morning we went live with the sight Rose City Tgirls. Now we are all excited about and I did spend a good amount of the morning on the web page learning more about it. Because of this I wanted to get to the Escape early with my computer.

Now I was hoping we would have a good turnout tonight as we had posted in the Yahoo Group, Our Facebook page and Cassandra had sent out text messages about our new group and we had some people signing up today. Now yes part of our new web sight is private and for members only but some of it is open to the public so feel free to check it out at http://rosecitytgirls.com/.

I got to the Escape at 5 and took time updating my blog from this last week, I kind of merged several days and outing together something I try not to do as I like to have a record of each outing. It was about 6 I was just finishing my blog when Cassandra and Cristine showed up. The 3 of us talked about our group and our web site and where we want to see it go.

We we did have a good turnout tonight, Laura, Mikaela, Jan, Lynn, Cassie, Lorie, Michelle and Michele  and I am sure I am missing someone. Several of the girls Signed up on the new web site using there phones and of course that was the big topic of the night. It was a fun night and I stayed out till 11:30

Now on Sunday all the administrators were getting together at Peggy and Cassandra’s house to learn more about running the web page and also share things we have learned. Laura, Cristine and July got there at 1 but I didn’t make it till almost 4 and had to go as my male self. I got there just before Julie had to leave, she had broke a nail and needed to get it fixed. It was so funny as I know just how she feels as I broke a nail the last time I went to Diva Las Vegas. Julie had also came today as her male self. It was good to see her again even if only briefly. I really do need to get together with her and also Peggy.

We spent several hours sharing things we have all learned and also going over things we like and things we want to do or change and adding events, news stories, and About page, as these are available to the public. I had only planned on being here a couple hours but I stayed here till after 10. It really was a fun day also but would have been better if I could have gone as Susan.

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day.
