When I first heard about the Burlympics, I thought, “WOW, this is perfect!” I don’t just get a big nerd-on for all things Olympics (ahem, I’m pretty sure I can name every female figure skating gold medalist for the last 30 years.), but my burlesque style jives with competition-style feats of strength. So it was a no-brainer to apply and do (metaphorical) backflips when I found out I was accepted.

Did I mention I’m opening the show on Friday night? Eek!

Ok, ok, I don’t do triple Axels, or lift 300 pounds over my head, or do flips on a four-inch-wide balance beam on stage…but taking your stockings off while on your head ain’t peanuts.

Seriously, though, I’m really looking forward to seeing the other performers and getting inspired by all the sparkly, glittery, burlesque-ing strength on stage.
