Quite a few outings, even breaking the “Golden Rule” about not going about dressed up in one’s own hometown. (Threw that part of the “rulebook” out the window… heh heh heh…)
There’s also the usual monthly trips up to Sacramento for socials with the River City Gems, and nightcaps in Midtown/Lavender Heights after some of those socials.
The Luau Party with the Gems was an incredible experience, especially my first time among others in a one-piece swimsuit… ^_^; (And peep-toe wedges, and a cute beach hat..) – I even waded about in the pool and played volleyball with some of the other girls! ^_^;
My birthday was interesting – If I didn’t do any special outings, all my friends online, on both of my Facebook accounts, sent me birthday greetings… I tell you, it got me all choked up… Getting a tasty chocolate cupcake at the August Gems social, and a card signed by some of the girls with the Gems brought tears to my eyes… ^_^; (But I’ll always be eternally young-at-heart. ^_-; )
September, while not quite cooling down as much as I wanted, brought a few more outings, and some me-time in town, and the return to school, as I get my geek girl credentials for real! – It also ended with my return to River City Sparkle, where I pulled out as many of the stops as I could, and had a good time, and got out as myself among the “normal folk” as well! ^_^;
This month’s doing quite well, with my first trip up to Sacramento to see “Repo! The Genetic Opera”, and a showing of Rocky Horror Picture show here in my hometown towards the end of the week. (Debating whether I’ll have some local friends I know come with me, and if I’ll dust off the little black dress for the show!)
I’ll go into more depth on what I’ve been doing over the last few months in the next few posts… Stay tuned! **huggs**
