So, Mardi Gras has come and gone after 17 times marching in the parade, I made the decision to boycott the parade and party this year and save my holidays for later on in the year (code for “being a lazy old queen” lol). With that said I don’t think I missed out on much but saved a lot of money. Things are starting to get a little cold in Western Sydney I’m looking forward to catching up with friends and doing some things I normally wouldn’t do there’s always something to do in western Sydney. This month I will celebrate 26 years of doing drag meaning I’m technically 52 years young OMG it’s my birthday = YUCK. That means I will reduce my responsibilities and push it onto my drag daughters and other high-profile queens in the Western Sydney Community. Am I starting to feel a little clucky, do we have a new member to the Buttercup family? YASSSSS I will be a grandmother lol grandfather in April OMG I’m feeling old but excited.
