So much I want to post, so little time....

Going to a fancy dinner tonight. Will be dressing very, as K likes to say, shi-shi. (Or is that chi-chi, as in chi[c]-chi[c]?) Dinner invitation specifies "cocktail attire." More prurient parts of my mind split up the word "cocktail" and wonder if I should show up wearing only a condom. I think I'll stick to the suit-and-tie look.

It's most definitely chichi and probably comes from the french: chic

Thank you. K and I thought it was a made-up word. Glad to know we were wrong, since it is a catchy word.

Personally I think the ever trendy "condom on a two-toned stick" should be all the rage for such events that require me to dress up in drag (which is what I call the chichi).

I am amused.

You could always have donned your African outfit but without the gorilla head. Guayaberas are considered formal attire in Panama, but you aren't there now. If you're going to do the chichi or drag thing, you might as well be extravagent about it.

Re: Covering
lol. I don't own an African outfit. The gorilla suit was rented and the gown was borrowed.
