So there I was on Sunday evening going through the motions of a mid-January Bingo when some gay decided to get lucky (not with me!) and win the massive Snowball that I had been quietly growing. I’d say I was raging but I’m not as raging as you folks (I know who you are!) who decided to stay home to watch some shite on the telly because you had the January blues.
Well, that choice lost you €1600 and gained you a valuable lesson: You never know when the snowball is going to be won. It’s like syphilis. You just don’t take the chance.
Your loss is that terrified-looking gay in the picture’s gain. No, not me! I’m not terrified; I’m terrifying.
And since you ask: I’m dressed as the lead from the Irish version of Les Misérables. It’s called Liberty, Paternity, Austerity and -just so you know – I die horribly of lack of consumption in the end.
And since you also ask: I have NO idea what he’s dressed as. That’s new money for ya!
Congratulations to Bingo regular Bobby, pictured here with me backstage at The George. Bobby snatched victory with a surprise win of our snowball on Sunday (21/10). He took home €1000 and a pair of my tights.
The snowball was won earlier than you might have expected, which just goes to show that you NEVER know when it will be won… AND YOU SHOULD never MISS BINGO.
Congratulations to Sarah* – that’s her in the picture with me. She won my €1500 snowball at Bingo this week and she was only delighted with herself. Winning does that to a girl.

This is my shot from the six page fashion spread from Sunday Independent’s LIFE magazine (12/8/2012). The spread also featured Bunny, Portia, Panti, Dolly, Davina, Veda and Regina. You can get to see some of the images in all their glory in Wilde, Wicklow Street, which opens with a big launch party tomorrow night.
Sunday Independent LIFE magazine ran a fashion feature on some of the most familiar faces on the Dublin drag scene… The images were shot by Barry McCall for a Wall of Fame for the new venue Wilde, which opens this week (16/8/2012). This is the contents page…
Here’s the actual printed version of the Herald Dubliner spread from the 12th of July. They didn’t use many of my comments in the end, which is probably just as well. However, I spent twenty minutes trying to remember all those other girls names so I was a bit disgusted that they didn’t mention them. They referred to Veda’s Madonna arms, which wasn’t a wise move. She once pulled a Northern Drag Queens limbs from her body with those arms. #VedaRage. They also pointed out that Davina has legs – eleven of them! I can only see the three.
