I’m sure, I’m not alone in saying that ideas for blogs/vlogs/articles/general small talk with people you haven’t seen in years, can hit you at any moment…

…so I don’t think I’m the only one who has random notepads full of illegible scribbles, most of which never get published.

For me, these ‘ideas’ usually come after a couple of glasses of wine, and I like to think it’s because alcohol frees up my mind from stress and allows my creative mind to run freely…

…yeah.

Anyway, this usually means I wake up after a night out with post ideas scribbled on scraps of paper around the house, or old beer mats shoved into my handbag. Sometimes they’re good, sometimes they’re bad… but generally they’re just notes about stupid things that have happened to me that day .

Until a couple of weeks ago, I woke up to find the following scrawled on the back of my hand in eye liner…

“The one where I get emotional about drag queens”.

Wow, really? I would love to know the train of thought that led to that little gem.

So, whilst I have absolutely no idea where I was going with that one, I feel like I owe it to my drunken self to give these queen’s the respect they deserve…

So, to my home-girl Lily Savage, and all the hot Drag Queens worldwide… here are 5 reasons why I salute you. Honey.

*Have you seen how good these girls’ complexions are? Seriously, how do they do it? I have a hard enough time trying to disguise the fact that my skin hates me for my bad life choices, without the added problem of stubble.

*How often do you see some drunk girl in a club with her fake eyelashes hanging off. Now, how often do you see a drag queen with a misplaced face spider? I rest my case.

*Standing under the bright lights of a club without your make-up melting off like a scene from House of Wax, is a life skill they don’t teach in university.

*Sequins.

…and finally

*Anyone with the courage to climb up on a stage, face crowds of hecklers and do something they love – no matter what anyone thinks – is a hero in my book!

You go, girl!

(I can’t pull that off, can I?)
