My life as a heterosexual crossdresser.

Friday night at Easy Street

Well I made it out again Friday night. The last couple weeks have been so busy and I so look forward to my Susan time to get away for a while and relax. I took my time getting ready so I could really enjoy it. Not sure how many others enjoy the time we girls spend getting all pretty from the shower right through the makeup and putting on our cute cloths and heels but for me this is all part of the experience and I enjoy it all. Now to be total fair maybe if I did this every day of my life and spent the hour and a half every day I may not feel the same but I really doubt it as I love it so much and the look when I am done is so worth the time.

Well I had told friends I would be at Easy Street by 7:30 and as I took a little longer getting ready I was running late so I rushed getting dressed and was out and driving down the street. I was about a mile from home when I noticed I forgot my bracelets and ring. Now I didn’t want to be any later and really didn’t want to have to go back home as it would mean driving through my neighborhood 2 more times once going home and once leaving but I just had to have my jewelry so I turned around and went home. I pulled into my garage and got out and ran into the house, only took a couple minutes and I was back out to my car. I left the garage door open so the houses across the street could have seen me but it looked like they weren’t home. soon I was out on my way and now later than I wanted. I got to Easy Street about 7:45 so I really wasn’t that late and I am sure none of my friends even noticed but I hate when I am late someplace.

Anyway as I said in my last blog about Easy street they do not have a lot of parking and so I ended up parking about a half block up on the street. Not too bad as it is a residential neighborhood but it also does not have really good street lights so a girl must be really careful. I got inside and Cassandra, Maya, Cristine and Michele were already there. Now the staff here is awesome and so welcoming, they always say hi and treat us great; as a matter of fact Jodi the woman who runs Easy Street invited us when the Candlelight asked us to come there a little less so they actually want us there which is really nice. Jodi even introduced herself to us all and learned our names what a way to make one feel welcome.

Soon Roxy and Chris showed up so we moved from our both to some tables so we would have more room. We all ordered some food; I got the fish and chips which are really good. A couple got some pizza and even some hot wings and everyone thought their food was good so there you go; they have great food according to the T-girl food network. Cass started a list for pool and we all put our names on it. Even some of the regulars did including a husband and wife (who by the way was named Susan also). She was at ease with us but her husband was a little uneasy at first but a couple of the girls were talking about boats and he came over and joined in and soon he was sitting at our table and having a good time. they were really two awesome people

The band started a little after 9 and that would be the one bad point they have as they do not have a lot of room and with the band playing you could not hear anyone to talk but the music was really good. I guess if you wanted to talk we could have gone to the other end away from the band but the pool table was over by the band and that was what had the group’s attention.

A little later Amber, Jan and Lynn showed up and joined us but with the music we really couldn’t talk. Some were dancing maybe at one point 10 but mostly small groups and mostly woman but then again there dance area is not that big but they all appeared to be having a good time.

Brook showed up (in boy mode) and it was nice to see her again. She is so busy working two jobs she hardly ever gets time to go out let alone as Brook. We got to talk a little during the bands break. She really misses her time out as Brook and I can totally relate as I know how I feel if I miss my Susan time especially for a long period but a girl has to do what a girl has to, to make ends meet and buy her all those pretty cloths, heels and makeup. any way it was a fun night as usual, anytime I can spend with my good friends is fun.

If you have never been to the Easy Street you should give them a try, they are located at 6618 SE Powell Blvd Portland Oregon 97206. They are your friendly neighborhood bar and will go out of their way to make you feel welcome. A big thanks to Jodi and all the staff there, you are all so awesome and look forward to getting to know you all better.

Well the band stopped playing about 1 am and we stayed just a little while longer playing pool and talking. Got a good chance to talk with Jan and Lynn finally which is nice, Jan even won a few games of pool at the end. Jodi came over and thanked us all for coming and invited us back.

It was sad to see our evening come to an end but we were all getting really tired as it has been a long day so we all said our goodbyes and off we went home. not sure where we will be next Friday as it is our night to go to the Candlelight but there is talk about skipping it because of them asking us not to come as often. Now I have mixed feelings on this. On one hand do we really want to go someplace that would rather we didn’t and spend our money there supporting them which is a valid point. On the other side should we let them chase us off? Both equally valid concerns but the point that sticks out in my mind is that most of the staff at the candlelight like us and treat us well and for the most part most of the customers there are okay with us some even look forward to us being there, as one said we bring a breath of fresh air. I guess I would still like to see us go there every once in a while as everyone always seems to have a good time there but I will go with the group as it is being out with my friends which is most important no matter where we go. I guess as it will be torn down next year to make way for the college to expand it really won’t be an issue then.

Any way I hope you all have as great week and thanks for reading and commenting on my blog. Last month I had over 1100 views which just blows my mind.

Bye J

Monday home from Diva Las Vegas

Well we are home from Diva Las Vegas and all sad it is over. I called and made an appointment to have my beautiful acrylic nails removed at Glamorous Nails on Farmington Road in Beaverton at 5 pm. I wanted to wait as long as I could plus we wanted to do some shopping first. I needed a long dress for the T-girl Pageant this coming Friday. I am really looking forward to it but a little nervous. Peggy and I planned to go at noon and called Maya to see if she wanted to go and she did. We went over and picked Maya up and then we were off shopping.

We started off at T.J. Maxx and found some cute things but nothing in my size. Next we stopped at Catherine’s and they didn’t have anything long. Maya suggested we try Ross Dress for less and Burlington Coat factory and Washington Square so we drove over to a shopping center by 217 and started at Ross. We went over to Kohl’s which was in the same shopping center and looked around and again found nothing. I never realized how hard it would be to find a cute long dress. We went into Burlington Coat Factory and found several cute long dresses and some were even the right size. I found this really cute black dress so I tried it on and it fit perfectly. So I had my dress for the Pageant. Maya and Peggy found another dress for me to try but it didn’t fit. It was so much fun shopping with Peggy & Maya.

Just for fun Peggy suggested we go look at shoes and I found the cutest open toed heels with 4″ heels and they fit perfect. Peggy & Maya thought they were cute too so I decided to buy them too. Peggy also found some cute shoes that fit her as well as Maya. We went up and paid for our items and then decided to go get lunch. Peggy and Maya new of a place I think it was called Hot Wings but not sure. We got a table and the waitress was so nice. We had a nice lunch and a chance to talk.

After lunch we took Maya home and went in and she showed us some of her clothes and I got some more ideas for the pageant this Friday. This is going to be so fun and I am really getting excited. Finally it was time to leave and go get my nails removed. We got to Glamorous Nails and went in. it took them about 5 minutes to get to me and soon I was soaking my nails off. The lady that did my nails was awesome and did a great job. I would recommend them if you want to get your nails done. It only took about 45 minutes and my nails were all back to normal. I really miss my long nails and can’t wait to get acrylic again.

We got back to Cassandra and Peggy’s house and I showed Cassandra my dress and shoes and she thought they were cute. So then we spent the next hour trying on different looks and dresses and working out just what I would wear for each part of the pageant. So now I am relaxed and ready as I have everything figured out and I am all ready.

Now with everything worked out I put my stuff in my car and had to say goodbye. Cassandra and Peggy were so much fun to spend the week with we had such a great time. This brings our trip to Diva Las Vegas to an end but you can check out all my pictures on my Windows Live Profile.

Friday night end of Diva Las Vegas

We got up late again today as we were all out way to late last night. I did my makeup and put on my swim suit and a skirt over it and Peggy and I went down stairs to the pool. I wanted to get some pictures of me in my suit at the pool. The last three days has been cold and windy so we never were able to make it to the pool. We took the elevator down to the lobby and being Friday you would not believe the amount of people there all waiting to check in. it took a bit to get through all the people so I was glad I had put the skirt over my bathing suit. I am sure people were looking but at this point I really don’t even look at them anymore to see if they are looking I just go about what I am doing.

We got out to the pool and there were already about 20 people or so out there so we walked to the other end so the sun would be right for taking pictures. Peggy has been so great to take all the pictures I want, thanks Peggy. We got some of me just standing there both with the skirt on and just in the bathing suit and then I went into the pool and we took a few as I came out so in looks like I had been swimming which would have been so fun but would have ruined my makeup and hair. I am such a girl worrying about such things. After my photo shoot Peggy and I just laid there in the sun for 20 or 30 minutes. It was so nice and relaxing. We then walked back through the crowded lobby and went up to the room to see if Cassandra was ready.

We all went downstairs to the café and got breakfast (at 3 pm) as we were just starting our day. We then went over and cashed in some of the slot play vouchers at the players club and got our free spin which none of us won on. We walked around the casino for a while and played a few slot machines. Cassandra had one that she kept winning on and when she got up she quit so I played it for a while, put $5 in and when I quit I had a little over $80 which made up for most of what I lost the night before on the black jack tables.

We got in the car and went and found where the farewell dinner was so we would know how to find it. We then went over to Caesars Palace which is huge. We spent 1 ½ hours walking through the Forum shops and even got a few pictures, one of Susan’s favorite things. I am a picture girl. The shops are really hi end for the most part and more for looking then buying at least for this girl, we really only saw a couple people with bags. We then walked through the casino and looked around. Peggy played a slot machine but didn’t get one win. As we were leaving Caesar and Cleopatra walked through the casino and gave their little welcome speech and then invited guest to come up and get their picture taken with them and you guessed it, this girl was the second one up there. It was now time to head over for dinner so we left.

We got to the restaurant for the dinner and there were already lots of t-girls there so we went in and got a table. Everyone was taking pictures and so were we. I got a picture with Paula the lady who owns the Harmony spa and is a big supporter of Diva Las Vegas and I think she gets a lot of business this week because of it. She was so great though and very nice. She had a few prizes she was selling tickets for so we all bought some and wouldn’t you know it, Cassandra won one. A $125 spa gift basket. We stayed here a couple hours even went to the main part of the restaurant and took a couple pictures with 5 girls that were there from Utah and they were great and all had beautiful long nails.

We got back to our hotel about 10 pm and Peggy went up to the room while Cassandra and I went to the casino. Being the last night I decided to bet a little more and see how I did. We played several different tables and finally ended up at blackjack swi8tch. I8t was a fun game because you could switch cards between your hands but you had to play two hands so it was more expensive but a lot of fun. I was down about $100 when I sat down at this table and won it all back but yes we were having fun so we kept playing and in the end I lost it all back. We played till 3:30 am when I had enough (lost enough) so I left Cassandra and said goodbye to the people at the table and went upstairs to my room. It was so amazing the whole week playing at the tables not one person said anything negative or treated us bad. We even had several people (both men and women) who would come back to our tables just to play with us. It has been a truly wonderful experience and we are all sad to see it coming to an end. Tomorrow we leave to go back to LA and then Sunday we go home and Susan goes back to being a part time girl again. But for these eleven days of living just as Susan it has been awesome and I have some great friends to share it with. Cassandra and Peggy you rock.

Tuesday of Diva Las Vegas golf tournament

Well we all got up early Tuesday morning at 5:30 (Cassandra was up earlier) to get ready for the Diva Las Vegas golf tournament at Desert Rose Golf course. I was so excited as I finally get to wear my cute golf outfit I bought, a White skirt with a purple top. I look so cute in it with my white and pink shoes. We got to the course at 7:30 and checked in. we didn’t tee off till 9 am so we drove back down the street to a Starbucks to get something to get us going as we did not eat breakfast. When we got back to the course most of the other girls were there and we went over to the putting green to practice. From there we went to the driving range to hit a bucket of balls. We all looked so cute.

Now I have told everyone it was not how good I would play but how cute I looked on the course. I soon discovered my beautiful Acrylic nails were little long for golf. They made it really hard to get a good grip and if I didn’t get a good grip all the way through it felt like I was ripping them off. This was going to be harder than I thought.

Cassandra and I were paired with two other girls and in the last group, we had 16 girls (4 were wives that played) and Peggy had her own golf cart and was the official photographer of the tournament so she was driving all around taking pictures. Not sure but I think she said she had over 400 pictures.

We finally teed off and we were having the time of our lives. Cassandra and I have talked about playing golf (as Susan and Cass) so many times and now we were. After 4 holes I was only 3 over par (good for me) and was ahead of Cassandra. By the 5th hole the wind started to pick up. They had been forecasting strong winds (30-45 MPH) by the afternoon but it looked like it was coming in early. You cannot imagine what that kind of wind can do to ones hair. It really made it hard to look cute (I don’t like hats so my hair was a mess). I tried to swing a little harder because of the wind but with my nails I couldn’t grip the club tight enough and my ball started going all over the place. Soon Cassandra caught and passed me and I never had the lead again. A few times I thought I was going to rip off a nail but luckily never did as I would have cried all the way to the nail salon to have them fixed. If I do this again I will definitely still have my nails and just hit the ball softer and realize this girl won’t win any tournaments. I refuse to give up my nails. By the 7th hole my hairs was so windblown I looked horrible except for my cute golf outfit.

Cassandra ended up beating me (she took her nails off) but that is okay. Cassandra is working on a YouTube video of the golf tournament so I was her camera girl. She hopes to have it up in a couple weeks so you will have you look for it. It should be really cute. She can play to the camera so well. At the end we all went in the club house for lunch and prizes. It was so fun and I met so many get t-girls.

This was an awesome group and the people of the Desert Rose golf course were so great and treated us outstanding, if you ever want to golf in Las Vegas I would recommend this course. Now we are back at the hotel getting cleaned up for a night out. 6 hours in the sun and wind Susan needs a fresh face and her hair redone.

I will be Adding pictures to my Windows Live Profile.

Monday at Diva Las Vegas

Well I got up this morning about 9 am and went over to see if Cassandra and Peggy were up. Peggy was up but not Cassandra, she had played black jack at that table all night and only got back to the room about 7 am so she was sound asleep. Peggy and I decided to check things out so we both got ready and off we went.

We decided to take the monorail down the strip to Harrah’s so off we went. The monorail is $5 a trip or $14 for all day so that is what we did. If you are ever in Las Vegas this is the only way to go. We got off at Harrah’s and walked through the casino looking at things. From here we went out onto the strip and started to make our way down to Wynn’s Casino. We had to walk by the Venetian and took a few pictures. If you have never been here you cannot imagine how long these blocks are. It was so fun just strolling along the strip with all the other people. We finally got to the Wynn and they have a really cool waterfall over rocks out front so I was going to take a picture of Peggy when a really nice lady asked if I wanted to be in the picture and offered to take it so I handed her my camera and she took our picture.

Peggy and I strolled through Wynn’s looking at all the shops and décor. It is so amazing what they have done inside although it is way out of this poor girl’s budget. We browsed through a shoe store that had the cutest shoes but nothing under $500. These casinos are a city unto themselves. From here we strolled back down the strip to Harrah’s and caught the monorail and went down to MGM.

AT MGM we walked around and checked out their shops. We were hungry so we went to their Rainforest Café and had lunch. This is such a cute café as it has a forest theme and animated animals that come alive every 15 minutes and they even simulate a rains storm. I took some pictures but it was pretty dark so they are not too good. We enjoyed a nice lunch and girl talk so much fun.

From here we took the monorail to the Imperial Place / Paris station and went to the Paris. We wanted to go up to the top of the Eiffel tower so we could get a good look at the strip. It only cost $10 but so worth it. It is ½ the size of the real Eiffel tower in Paris. We rode the elevator up to the top and it was so windy up there that it messed up my hair poor Susan. We got some great pictures of the strip. We stopped at their gift shop and then back on the monorail and back to the Sahara where we are staying.

It was almost 4:30 and Cassandra was just about ready so I touched up my makeup after a day on the strip and then the three of us went downtown to the Union Plaza for dinner with the Diva Las Vegas group. This was one of the big get together of the week and there must have been at least 100 t-girls there. We ate at the Firefly and the food was really good and the staff was Awesome. They treated us so well and I even got a picture with the bar tender. This is where they took the group photo for Diva Las Vegas.

We came back to the hotel and Cassandra was ready for bed as she stayed out the night before and then when she did get up she went and worked out running 10 miles in the hotels exercise room. She is so good as she is still working out almost every day, way to go Cassandra. This is why she didn’t get her nails done before we came. Cassandra and Peggy went up to their room and I walked through the casino just to see what was going on. I found a $1 blackjack table so decided to sit and play for a bit. I bought in with $20 and played for maybe 45 minutes. It was fun but the dealer started to get hot and as I was up about $25 I figured I should quit while I was still ahead. Maybe I will do some more gambling tomorrow night. I cashed in my chips and went up to my room for bed.
