I'm just a fat gal with a blog and an opinion. Well, lots of opinions.

Unicorns & Rainbows


No really, that was the name of the show I attended last night! Okay well it was actually called: The Kentucky Fried Woman Show Unicorns & Rainbows: A Queer Cabaret Celebrating All Things Gay It was fabulous, if not too short in my opinion. I had never been to the venue before, but I liked it a lot. The decor was a bit posh for what I’m used to, but in general not too stuffy or stuck up or anything either. Nice! The show featured music, dance, burlesque and fun fun fun! To say I enjoyed myself would be an understatement. I had my two BFFs with me, many laughs were had.

Actually, the only bummer of the evening for us was after the show was over we were invited and promised that there would be a Dj for dancing. I don’t know who the Dj was, but at first he was playing some pretty cool 80’s songs and J & I had fun goofing around dancing to those, but suddenly it was slow or just strange songs in general. Before the show started they were playing The Gossip, Beth Ditto and even Lady Gaga over the sound system. We were all into it, so the after show music left us wanting. It really bummed us out. We were ready to dance the night away, especially since the show ended at 9ish. I don’t wanna pick on anyone and I don’t know the situation, but I’ve always felt that the role of a Dj is to read the room and enhance or lift the mood. Ya know? Am I off base here?

And so we left, with some hesitation, singing our way back to the car. As per my usual, I got us a bit lost before finally finding our way back onto the freeway. I don’t know what it is about Oakland, but this happens every single time! Ha-ha! J & I kept the dancing going most of the way home. But by the time we got to our apartment building I think we were all pretty tired. I was still very much awake, but physically tired since I’d been up since 6 am and already went fishing with my husband and went to an art & wine festival that day. All in all it was a fun and full day. It was lovely to see so many friends and new acquaintances.

How was your weekend? Tell me all about it!

    My weekend was good.

    I have a gas stove.

    I definitely agree with you about DJs, and so would Mr. Twistie. So there. Then again, we don’t know what instructions he was given.

    True, I don’t know if any instructions were given at all. The Dj seemed to be having an awesome time, but hardly anyone else. Oh well. Glad you had a good weekend. <3

    Wow, that is a fun day-I can’t remember having one that booked that wasn’t concerning kiddos, lol. DJ’s that can’t really keep the mood going sort of aggravate me a bit. I know they are human and have off-days too, but I was spoiled by a few of the super great ones and now seem to expect that all the time (oops…) The ones who keep getting the crowd to their feet and more after hours and hours are pretty damn neat.

    Yeah. Perhaps I was previously spoiled and hadn’t known it with Dj’s. It is my biggest complaint about my local goth club, too. They’re playlist almost never changes. Bah! Oh well. I did have a good time over all so I’ll stop bitching now. Ha-ha!

    It was a long weekend here in Norway, and I used the oportunity to spend some time at our cottage by the sea. The weather was *amazing*, so of course I got sunburned on the first day – I didn’t let that stop me though:) The first swim of the year is officially under my belt, 16°C and super refreshing!

    Oh yes, the first sunburn of the year! I am very familiar! Ha-ha! It’s as though we’re so unused to being in the sun we assume something change since the last time and either forget to protect our skin or simply hope it’ll be okay. Sounds like a lovely weekend though! <3
