Tomorrow night I’m doing something I haven’t done in about ten years. At a work function I’m doing drag. It’s funny that even though I’m not particularly hung up on being “masculine” in the way a segment of the gay world is, I’m finding that I’m worried how I’ll be perceived in the office afterwards.

Regardless of that, I’m actually looking forward to it. Getting up in a costume is a lot of fun and you get to be someone completely different for a night. I’m not looking forward to the killer high heels for three hours though. They may hurt my feet but they are fabulous.

In preparation of the evening I have just removed all my body hair. Granted I’m far from a hairy person but I figure if I’m doing drag, I’m doing it right. So now my legs, under arms, chest and even my arms are devoid of hair. I quite like having smooth legs but even that is too much effort to maintain so there’s no way I’d maintain my underarms etc.

Fingers crossed I don’t make an arse of myself tomorrow night. It should be a fun night and if you can’t do drag this close to Mardi Gras, when can you?
