The past week has been ALL about traveling. A week ago today I trekked through the New York City subways with two giant suitcases and a carry on. Not an easy thing to do when you have less arms than luggage. I made it to the D20 Burlesque Tour meeting place and then we were on our way! Road tripping with burlesque girls is already awesome. Add a little Dungeons & Dragons into the car ride and you have an unforgettable time! We were on our way to perform at Gen Con, one of the biggest gaming conventions in the US, so it seemed appropriate.
When we arrived at Gen Con on Saturday and get ready to perform I couldn’t help but think to myself, “my life rocks! I am at my first Con, getting ready to take my clothes off in front of a bunch of eager nerds!” When show time came, the crowd was wild! Enthusiastic and excited, they made me extra pumped to get on stage! The entire show went swimmingly and I was lucky enough to get to gogo dance during intermission in my Jade costume! I was a sweaty mess by the end of the three songs, but had so much fun! The second act went even better than the first and we finished the show with Stella, Foxy, and I running up and joining Anja with epic tassel twirling!
After the show we were exhausted, but woke up so we could enjoy the last day of Gen Con before heading back to New York. The rest of the drive was just us feeling good and playing some D&D. I was back in NYC for about 8 hours before I was off to Portland!
Five days of travel behind me and one more to go! I woke up at 5:15AM so that I could be at the airport at 6 (not an easy thing to do when I didn’t go to bed until 2). I have NEVER slept so easily on a plane before! I slept straight through take off and landing from NYC to Denver International Airport. I had a two hour layover, which passed quickly, and upon boarding my flight to PDX, I again passed out. I was awake during the rocky take off and I awoke shortly before landing, but seriously! I slept through that plane ride too!
So here I am, back home in Portland, OR for two months. I have a few shows here and there and am finishing my time in Portland with three shows in Seattle in October so check out my calender and keep stopping by to see if I have added anymore shows!
