Peoria IL

So I'm in Peoria again! It appears to be a "no man's land" for TG's (if you will forgive the play on words). I could not find anything to do looking on the internet, and no one in four Yahoo groups I'm part of appeared to have any suggestions either. Well, maybe I can't go out and do Karoake or anything, but there was no way in hell I was gonna pass up the chance to get pretty for a while. I tried a new outfit out - what do you think?

I like the above pic because it looks like I have a star in my hand! I kind of like that idea! :-)

I also tried something that might get me kicked out of the crossdressers club - I went without nylons <The crowd gasps!> Here's something most women probably learned young but I just figured out: when wearing nylons and heels, your feet tend to slide a bit in the shoe, and this ultimately winds up rubbing some spots on the tops of your toes against the straps. Over, and over, and over, until finally
you rub that spot on your toe raw and it hurts! So this time I went with out and found it a good deal more comfortable. Problem is my feet are WHITE and UGLY! I will probably go back to nylons and just deal with the ouchy toes.

I don't know why, but I just didn't feel confident today. I don't think I looked any better or any worse than other days where I have enjoyed myself, but I just didn't feel confident. I ultimately called it quits after about 3 hours. Considering it takes me 2 hours to get ready, this hardly seemed like a good return on my investment. Actually this leads me to my next comment - would you believe I'm getting bored with CDing? This one worries me a bit as a good part of why I love my job is because it gives me a lot of time to be Kim. I think the problem is that I need to find interesting things to do while out. I've walked through malls in just about every major city from Austin Texas East and they are all starting to look the same to me. Now when I did the Smithsonian thing, THAT was cool! Hmm . . . I think that's the answer - gotta find interesting things to do while dragging besides walking malls. Besides, I'm NOT wealthy so walking malls for a hobby is getting expensive because I have this nasty habit of actually buying stuff!
So I was sitting here writing this blog entry when this repetitive sound finally edges its way into my consciousness. As the hotel is right off a freeway, it took me a few minutes to realize that the sound of roaring engines I was hearing was NOT from cars! I poked my head out of the window and am greeted by a number of biplanes doing doughnuts! It looks like there must be some sort of air show going on, because as soon as they stopped and I went back inside, my room was rocked by the sound of a fighter jet going over head! I ran back down the stairs to take pics of it too!

So with out further ado, here are pics from the Airshow!
