So this is Christmas
And what have you done
Another year over
And a new one just begun

And so this is Christmas
I hope you have fun
The near and the dear one
The old and the young

A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any fear

The famous lyrics of John Lennon’s Happy Christmas (War is Over). What do they mean to you?

Perhaps this is a touch deep for me considering my antics this past year — but Christmas tends to make me pensive.

Have I been too much of a whore? Have I spent enough time with loved ones? Have I spent too much time on RSVP? Have I spent too much money on drag?

What have you done in 2009? Has yours been better spent than mine? So many questions… so few answers — and not nearly enough alcohol.

Instead of dwelling on the meaning of life and what 2009 meant to me or you, we will move on to far more exciting things that won’t lead to months of therapy and an addiction to Valium.

Coming up this weekend on Saturday December 5 is the Pollys Naughty But Nice! show at Marrickville Town Hall featuring the Pollys cast. This celebration of all things nice and all things naughty such as slags like me should be a hoot.  Come along to see things in all shapes and sizes — from glam to grunge, from tasteful to tragic. The Pollys mixed bag is always a drawcard.

Dolphins Dance for the lovely lesbians is also on Saturday December 5. This is reported to be their last dance for the year and no doubt the girls will come out in questionable holiday chic to celebrate.

On Friday December 11 Jupiter’s Nightclub are having their Christmas celebrations.  Their Happy Hour from 9pm to 11pm will surely have you on the floor like a paralytic drunk. Now that is a Christmas celebration to remember!

Heaven Social Dance is on Saturday December 12 with two all-Christmas shows at the Northmead Bowling Club with dates also locked in for 2010. And they said we’d only last six months!

Don’t forget Drag-O-Rama on Saturday December 19 at the Hotel Gearin in Katoomba. All proceeds will go to PLWHA and Pinkfest 2010. Some great causes — so head up there and support the night!

And last but not least for 2009 — celebrate NYE at Leura House with the Three Sisters Social Group. This three-course dinner and dance will be an elegant move into 2010. That is unless of course you drink too much and end up vomiting in the toilets.

Drag gossip: One of the legends and inspirations in my life is dumping me and heading to Queensland. What a bitch! How dare she abandon me to head north to live with bloody Carlotta! Rude Miss Penny C — rude!

Until next time gorgeous!
