Impossibly High Heels

Connie commented on a recent Cyrsti’s Condo post which involved high heels, beer, and coffee:

“So, you don’t need high heels to be impossibly high, just a couple of micro brews! Actually, some of those beers have a lot more alcohol content, so a couple of them could be like drinking a six-pack of Bud Light.

I’ve noticed that wearing “impossibly high heels” could give reason for a couple free beers, bought for me by men (gay or not?). I don’t know that my makeup is perfect, but it is perfect for me! I do think about my presentation, and how striving for perfection may be outing myself more easily. Still, when the occasion is fancy enough for it, I will go ahead and doll myself up – and lift myself up, too. Five-inch heels are no problem for me to navigate any room! For me, the daily blend gets boring, and I relish those few times a year when I can throw caution to the wind. I wasn’t too tall in my 5″ heels that time when Sean Kemp sent over a drink and an invitation to join him at his table! I’ve always joked about that incident, in that Sean had so many children by so many different women, he must have felt I would be a safe and cheap date. πŸ™‚

I’m glad to hear that your foot is better, by the way. Not that I expect to also hear you’re wearing impossibly high heels, though. ;-)”

For sure, high heels have a mystical erotic value. Even a sense of power for men and women. Sean Kemp surely would agree!

The beer I was drinking was a bourbon barrel stout which carried an 8% alcoholic content. By comparison, when I worked in the bar business years ago, we had to make sure Coor’s Light wasn’t buried in the cooler where it would freeze. The alcoholic  content was so low. 

I felt bad that even if I can’t wear high heels anymore, I couldn’t even drink more than two stout beers. I don’t feel too badly about not being able to wear high heels anymore, self preservation at my age is a priority!

Emmy News

For once, thanks to Laverne Cox and Indya Moore, transgender women received quite a bit of positive  publicity at this years Emmy awards.

Check out Laverne’s clutch she carried on the purple carpet! 

Cox was nominated for the Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series category for the final season of Orange is the New Black. After receiving three nominations for her performance on the Netflix series, Cox has said she is more than ready to become the first transgender actress to take home an Emmy. But on the purple carpet she decided to say something else.

Cox wore a tiered Monsoori gown, complete with a shoulder ruffle, as well as a full, lilac skirt. But what was more powerful was what she brought with her: an acrylic clutch as well as her guest, lawyer and activist Chase Strangio.

Transgender actress Indya Moore also sizzled on the runway.
