Okay, Walter just walked in and told me I better get my ass in gear and have a song, a dress, and a persona for the drag party that is happening in two weeks.

Every year, there is a party. You have to have a routine- lip synch thankfully, a dress, and fabulous hair. Last year, I did David Cassidy, I think I love you.

See, you go in formal attire for dinner. After dinner, you change and it is a competition.

Every year, there is a theme. Last year was Barbie, so I went as David Cassidy. Okay, enough martinis and the connection is clear. Walter was Lesbian Barbie. I can't remember his song.

This year's theme is the Red Carpet. Which means... uh... like I'm showing up for a red carpet event.


I've had Queen Latifah suggested but please understand- I am the only woman in a room of 15 gay men. I have to SHINE. Having real breasts is simply not enough.

Katherine Hepburn. Hands down the best choice for you. You can go in comfortable clothes, be grouchy and gruff, act like a diva, and look damn good doing all of it.

Interesting side note: for the longest time Jerame's post, "The man we knew as Katherine Hepburn," was a footnote on Wikipedia. They removed it a few months ago for some reason.

oh. I like that.

Now I just need a 'don't give a damn song.

A good I don't give a damn song (plus something that would score points with the gays) might be an Amy Winehouse song ("Me and Mr. Jones", perhaps, or "Back to Black"). She has a throw back sound, plenty of breaks to suck on a cigarette or play the “crowd”, and it would fit with the Katherine Hepburn image.

Just a thought. :)

How about Jill Sobule's "I Kissed A Girl?" That would be funny as Hepburn.

How about Michelle Obama? (Note: I hereby refuse to suggest Hillary, even if she did barely win tonight).

"an Amy Winehouse song ("Me and Mr. Jones"...)"

I have to assume that's a re-make of the song "Me and Mrs. Jones" (we've got a thang goin' on... !). Under the circumstances, it would make more sense to sing that. Originals are almost always cooler than re-makes. And Sandra Bernhardt shocked the shit out of David Letterman (this was a thousand years ago) telling him that was the song she was performing on tour. (At the time I thought she was kidding just to get his goat, but she really did cover it.)

Anyway, a less fabulous, but easier costuming way to go, is to go as a picketing screenwriter. Theoretically, they wouldn't have a song.

A great "cool/attitude" song, which I can't really think of any excuse to use, is "Relax Max" by (I believe) Dinah Washington. (You might have heard it in some DoubleTree commercials.)
