The only way I can (since I don't drink) at the Oxwood inn back in September.

not really, just some of the decor at the Palms, as seen in an attempt to be creative with a mirror shot. Red flags don't get raised there, only spirits (in glasses and otherwise)
With friends like Kimora, and Mikayla doing the shown, mine were lifted all the way up on to the bar :)

..you glad I went to the Oxwood and saw my knock out friends Aubrey and Vanessa? In addition to headlining at the Oxwood, Aubrey is the host of Transfixed, the new Thursday night at the beloved old Club Cobra, in North Hollywood. Its's doors have been open for a couple of months now and is doing well, with good crowds and a great show. Vanessa is a great performer in her own right and is one of Aubrey's Femme Fatale's, who help everyone at Cobra to have a good time by circulating with drink specials. If you were a fan of the old Goddess at Cobra, you really should check this new club at its old night and venue soon. This is not a knock on Goddess which is still going strong on Monday's at MJ's in Silverlake, .hosted by the ever gorgeous Leslie Munroy.

fall between two stools (mainly British)
if something falls between two stools, it fails because it is neither one type of thing nor another and if someone falls between two stools, they fail because they try to combine two different types of thing that cannot be combined
I have to confess, I wasn't familiar with this expression and stumbled on while I was trying to find something cute or clever to say about this picture. But I was struck by it and how it seems to apply to me and my life, which is complex, to say the least. I'm always trying to be too many things to too many people and never sure if success at one isn't somehow failure to another. But if failing is falling, success is standing and I seem to manage to stay on my feet. As I did here, despite adequate seating, at the Oxwood on a fun Saturday back in September.
Scott and Ben's Photographic blog. Bienestar is a leading social service provider to the Latina LGBT community, and their annual pageant is a signature event and one of the many right on things they do each year. I'm pleased and proud to support it and to call many who serve or who are served by it my friends.

Scott and Ben's excellent blog. Bienestar is a tremendous community service organization, that provides important care and counseling and support to the Latin LGBT community. In addition to all their other good works, they put on an annual pageant, which I always try to attend, even though its done entirely in Spanish and I only hablo un poco :) It doesn't matter because the transgender community here in LA is is a shared one, even when languages are not.

That's Carla, who did really well in her very first pageant.
Melissa, who is always gorgeous and gracious in every pageant, Juliana, who is always a joy to see and Isabella, who showed poise equal to her beauty in the question and answer session,
and finally, my good friend Carolina, who may never have done a pageant but is no less a Queen for all the good work she does as a volunteer at them.
