The Old Gay Gal Just Ain’t What She Use To Be

The Old Gay Gal Just Ain’t What She Use To Be

Went to the Her HRC soirée in Hollywood last night and had a great time meeting lots of nice women, like Kim Hoke, an up-and-coming stand-up comedienne, and her personal trainer girlfriend Tanya, and the lovely Christina Buie (see pic below). We’re already Facebook friends this morning!

Thing is, I never go out anymore. Since I became a mom, it’s a major undertaking to go out. Last night we couldn’t get a sitter, so my girlfriend stayed home with Stephen and I went with my friend Jame. Just as well, because by the time I pay a sitter, pay for valet, pay for the cover charge and a couple drinks, we’re up to $100.

So I joked with my new friends how I haven’t danced in five years and I have a drink about once every six months. Last night was my night to do both. Got home before midnight (the time I used to just be heading out) and I was so buzzed from one strong drink that I had bed spins.

Ugh! I couldn’t sleep all night, and it didn’t help that Stephen woke up around 1:30 am and I had to put him back to bed, and then I lay awake until 4 am and then just gave up trying to get any shut-eye.

It’s one o’clock in the afternoon, and I am still HUNGOVER from one vodka and cranberry.

Luckily I had the nanny today, because it’s been raining non-stop since yesterday and I just don’t know how playful I could be with Stephen today when I feel like a college kid who just pulled an all-nighter with back-to-back Midnight Madness parties. Did I really used to do that? Every weekend? And I survived???

    Oh no, did I drop the ball? Or did seats fall through? This event was on my radar for a second but life has been busy. Sounds like it was fun!

      Hey Brandy, the Her HRC event was just one of the many events building up to the grand gala on March 18. You haven’t missed it!
