I am incredibly sad that Thorgy Thor was eliminated in this week's episode of RuPaul's Drag Race Season 8. She was one of my favorites from the get go. I liked her unique vision and creative execution of drag. She always came across to me as a really nice, down-to-earth queen...someone you could bump into on the streets of NYC, gush over, and she'd invite you for coffee. I may be wrong about that but she just seemed to me that she would be modest, humble, and a friend to all.
It's unfortunate, in my opinion, that it appears RuPaul is once again gunning for a black winner. Bob the Drag Queen IS incredible, but isn't it past time for Chi Chi DeVayne to go home? And Naomi Smalls? And please...Derrick Barry MUST go. All IMHO of course.
Now that Thorny is gone, it's up to Bob to take home the crown. Truly...it's hers to lose.

Once in a great while we come across a picture of someone who simply captivates us...maybe it's the look in the eye, the fall of hair, the composition of the picture...something makes us wish we could reach out and touch the subject.
Today's picture does that to me. I'm not sure if it's the look in his eye, his musculature, his beard, his perk nipples....but he makes me weak-kneed. In a good way.
Hope you enjoy as much I do.

For the umpteenth year in a row, Mom and I attended the sunrise service at Rose Hills Memorial Park and Mortuary. It was one of the better services of the past few years. Dad and my Sister are under the weather and didn't think that they should brave the cold, damp air.
Also as usual, Mom and I visited my paternal grandmother's grave. When Mom got to my house (I drove from there) she said "I forgot the flowers!" So I quickly cut two Mr. Lincoln and two Double Delight blooms from my rose bushes to substitute. In the dark no less. The picture doesn't do them justice.
Afterwards, Mom and I met Dad and Sister for breakfast and later we'll have Easter dinner at the parents.
Wishing everyone a Happy Easter!

I realize it's been a week already and I'm just now getting to this...but whatever. I finally watched the first episode of RuPaul's Drag Race Season 8. What fierce queens we have this season!
I decided I wanted to share my impressions based on Workroom entrance, MainStage presentation, and episode personality. In no particular order, her are my four instant favorites:
Bob the Drag Queen
These four queens made an impression on me. Love their personalities and their looks. I think they're the ones I'll be watching and rooting for...until next week course!
I would like to give a shoutout to Laila McQueen who found herself lip synching for her life...she KILLED Lady Gaga's "Applause."
Now...here's where I'll get backlash. The two queens that I find the most annoying are:
Cynthia Lee Fontaine
These two - for me - are the most annoying. Robbie Turner seems a bit stuck on himself and I haven't yet seen anything that sets her apart from the rest of the pack. As for Cynthia Lee Fontaine...I think what I find annoying is her voice. It's probably not something she can control but girl! Try to talk like a man just once!
I admit to watching the preview of Episode 2 and I'm completely head-over-heels in love with the GORGEOUS AB Soto. I want to Cha Cha Bitch with him AND do the Horizontal Hula!!
So there you have it. I do believe there is a higher level of talent in this season's competition. I'm looking forward to seeing more.
Who were YOUR favorites? Tell me below in the Comments section.
