I forgot to mention in my last post that I got my first little piece of press. The Skinny magazine, which is a free monthly events periodical, featured my last gig as one of the things to look out for. There was a description of the night and a picture of yours truly to accompany it. I wasn’t even headlining! Excitingly I was contacted independently and asked to supply a press shot. I just sent the one of me in the red dress that I use for all my profile pictures. It is one of the best though it would be nice to get some proper ones done soon.
Eddie Izzard is further down the page so I was in good company. Suffice to say I picked up a few copies though I’m not sure what I’ll do with them as Anna is still kind of a secret and I can’t shout too loudly about it.
I’ll also take the chance to share a few photos from a couple of weeks ago. I had a little rehearsal and I was trying out a couple of new tops and such. The bit of card with @jahsflower written on it was something I did for Instagram. One of the lovely ladies I follow wanted to start a shout out style campaign to promote happiness and well being. She reckons through shouting out to each other and giving and receiving likes and positive comments will make us all feel good about ourselves. I’m paraphrasing of course but you get the idea. I was the first to respond to her and she reposted my pic a week later. I was looking at it earlier on today and viewed the comments underneath with a mixture of amusement and dismay. Some of her regular followers are not happy about her sharing a picture that contains a man dressed as a woman I can tell you. Upon visiting the page of the most outraged one I was shocked to see it mainly contained photos of his gun collection. I bet he wouldn’t hesitate to mow me down if he seen me in person! Frightening stuff 😨
