And here we are again.

2012 is pretty much dead. Add another hash mark on the wall.  Welcome, welcome, welcome to the dawning of the new era. 2013 is literally creeping around the corner and I still don’t have anything to wear to the imaginary NYE ball I’m attending with my handsome prince. Fuuuuuucccccckkkkk.

Well in reality I’ve got shows lined up before and after the new year. It’s like I’m busy and talented and people love live entertainment or something.

Burlesque Hangover

It’s Sunday. Early August.  Obviously the epic partying from the Colorado Burlesque Festival has made me a lazy lump. There was a  lot of alcohol and making out.  The glitter in my suitcase will never be cleaned and I was too drunk/honey badger to even care to take pictures with my camera.

 

When all of us performers talk about a burlesque hangover, we just don’t mean, OH dear I have costumes to put away. OH NO! It’s actually a hangover. There’s headaches, heartaches, back aches. A longing to be the center of attention again. To tell everyone whose boobs and ass you grabbed and who looks fabulous in just a thong. But you can’t because you will seriously get side-eye from your co-workers and have to explain yourself more than usual to your boss. (I’ve really started to clam up at the day job, or even promote.)

Everything waned in July and now it’s August and time to break out the sewing patterns and write down all the inspiration for new acts and refurbishing old ones.

Back of the Bus’s 2 girls 1 Cup act will be performed at the end of this month at A Burly Q! Burlesque and Sideshow Spectacular!

A Burly Q

I’m excited to not pander and be ugly.

Texas Burlesque Festival and Upcoming Events

 

Again, keeping it short. Hey what do you want from me? It’s 8 in the morning on a Sunday.

So yes, indeed! Burlesque Noir made the 505 of proud.  We all landed in Austin Friday, performed Saturday and came home Sunday with two awards and a hate for the Dallas/Ft. Worth airport and Texas storms.

 best emsembleBlack Mariah made the awards! So cute!

All of us ladies ( Mary Jane Monroe, Holly Rebelle, Me, Delicia Dollcurls, Joy Coy)  Holly Rebelle is holding her award for Best Solo.

Texas, you were great to us and I can’t wait to go  back and experience your humidity and ghetto mall fabulousness!

Aftermath

Of being a Dirty Rotten Showgirl after performing at the Hot Rod Hop at the Kimo Saturday night.

Thank you Ri Ri Syncyr for snapping this pic of Ann Gora and I getting catcalled while cleaning out a kiddie pool. Our lives are hard.

Annnd this is the result of me getting really really REALLLLLLY drunk and photo bombing. My life is hard. I signed a bunch of my photos with very dirty messages so pick one up next time from Dark Flash Photography and enjoy my horrible sense of humor. Special bonus if you get the really really reallllly offensive one.

I’m busy (not really) packing for the Colorado Burlesque Festival that is starting this Thursday. My liver is going to hate me. Burlesque Noir is performing Thursday night at the Opening Gala and I will be doing my Mary Jane solo on Sunday.  Yeah, my liver is going to hate me.
