Audition for TruTV & BOOKED AGAIN AT CASITA / JUNE 14 & 28

I had an audition for TruTV on Seward St. My voice is still not up to par. I had a rough morning before the audition with severe nasty coughing. But I think I'm getting better. I think I did ok at the audition but I wish my voice was better.

After the audition I went to wash my car because it was full of bird droppings. YUK! Then I went to The Coffee Bean (on Sunset & Holloway) to write in my Journal and make my list of things to get done. Lots to do. I'm going to have to hire an assistant.
My journal, sunglasses, Montblanc pen (I've had it since '97).
I got booked again at Casita del Campo for 2 Tuesdays in June (14 & 28).
My new show... 'DIVAS DEAD or ALIVE!'

See you there.

LARYNGITIS AGAIN

Been in bed all day. I got kind of a cough and totally hoarse voice. I really can't even talk. My voice is gone. It's a weird feeling not to have my voice. It makes me feel crippled. I've been watching a lot of TV.

In the evening we got a little bit of rain here in LA. My windows were open, it was cool, the ceiling fan was spinning. Although I was sick in bed, the temperature and fresh air was nice. I could not answer the phone today because I could not speak.

Pretty - Episode 1

SAM PANCAKE SHOW (Yes that's his real name)

I saw Sam Pancake do his one man show at The Cavern Club Theater at Casita del Campo. So hilarious!
He is quite a genius performer. He's been on tons of commercials, TV shows including WILL & GRACE and more.
I first met Sam at his home for his Birthday party 2 years ago. Since then I've seen him do guest appearances in some of Jackie Beat's shows.

He did a great job tonight keeping us all laughing and inspired. At the end, it was so touching.

Here's a clip to give you an idea of the Sam Pancake magic:

QUAD INSERT...4 BUSY DAYS.

Thursday / April 29...THE Wedding.
 
Flew back to LA. My roommate and RuPaul winner Raja came to pick me up from airport. We went to IHOP West Hollywood to eat dinner. Roommate took off to a party. I stayed home and stayed up to watch THE Wedding http://royalwedding.aol.com/. Kathy (in San Antonio) and I talked on the phone while we both watched it. I went to bed though just as they were entering Buckingham Palace.


 Friday / April 30 (Today felt like Saturday to me. Universal Studios Hollywood, CA)


Going up on the Jurrasic Ride at Universal Studios. It's about to drop and get us wet...Ahahahaaa! Photo: Gary
 It was a beautiful day for me and my friend Gary to go on a VIP tour at Universal Studios. It was such a gorgeous day. It was not too crowded. The Season has not quite kicked in. We took a trolly tour that was really exciting and kinda scary too. The Jurrasic Park ride was fun. In the House of Horrors I was screaming like a teenage girl. I can't do that one again. It was too scary.
At night I went to see Nadia Ginsberg in "The Madonnalogues." Funny! Great Show! The Cavern Club Theater at Casita del Campo - Silverlake (LA).


 Saturday / April 31
Did the big morning walk with friends at Lake Hollywood. Then we had Lunch at Sunset & Vine at Go Burger. I was craving the chili. I was so hungry. Never ate breakfast. Later in the evening I made some veggie chili over brown rice. I was having a chili day.   Gail Boggs came over to visit. We talked about a script she's got brewing. Wants me in it.

Sunday / May 1 (TWO Standing Ovations, but who's counting?)
This is the Terrace Garden Room where I performed at night. The room was full of tables added than what this picture shows.
I performed at the SLS HOTEL (Beverly Hills) for David McGrath's 50th Birthday party. Me and my sound guy were invited to have the 4 course dinner. Everything was perfect. I got up to sing and got 2 standing ovations! The crowd was mixed - gay, straight, drag, professionals, show biz, medical field, family, butch, fem all fun. David's a great guy who has given of himself so much to the community in New York with GMHC and Desert Aids Project LA. I met him in NYC several years ago. Now he's living in Beverly Hills and I was so honored that he asked me to perform at his party. The people were so much fun and fantastic, indicative of a great man. He has started a new leather company called Twisted DNA that is already doing great business.
