Daisy: We were busy bees that night and after some delicious food and cock-

tails, we dashed next to the Hillcrest Block Party after making a stop at House Boi to have a cocktail with the guys from Yum and Yum all around. Jessica: We had plenty of time inside to check out the block party and to catch

Neon Hitch perform. That girl can rock and can love you good—but I can love you better! On Saturday we got up bright and early to get to get our selves dolled up for the Pride Festival in Balboa Park. We emceed at the main stage, right as the folks were coming in from the parade. Daisy: Thank God for the breeze and shade, because a girl’s makeup can melt in high temperatures! It was great to be back on the Pride stage introduc-

ing the acts for the crowds. After our time slot, we greeted readers and fans at The Rage Monthly booth. It’s always so nice to get feedback and to meet our readers. Jessica: Thank you Gloria for having us back this year working the main stage!

Next year will be better because we will be prepared for the heat! After a nap and shower and a fresh coat of make up we headed to Eden to see

e’re writing this month’s column with a detox drink, while relaxing with clay masques on our faces. July has been so busy and stressful, that we needed a spa day to recover and get ready for all the events to come in August. In July we celebrated our sister’s day of birth with, Bar- barah’s Birthday at the Brass Rail on Saturday, July 11—I guess

you could say we christened her arrival with Divas! Daisy: It was fun putting together the special numbers with Barbarah and then

surprising her with Jessica! Jessica: I love my sister so much that I canceled my business trip to Miami to

surprised her! The following weekend was all about the sexy geeks and nerds at Comic-Con.

This year the convention got even bigger, with displays spilling out to the hotels and lawns surrounding the Convention Center—with so much walking to do, sensible shoes were a must. Sexy geeks roamed the aisle of the Con and we were in heaven looking at all the movie and TV show promotions and buying some really expensive toys. Jessica: I was so excited to see that they had a Hello Kitty section with a real-live

Kitty and I got to take a pic with her! Daisy: It was “truly outrageous” that I did not get my hands on a special edition

Jem doll. I had to look online for it but I did come home with a really cute My Little Pony unicorn… and the phone numbers of some sexy nerds! Every weekend in July there was something to do and after Comic-Con, we only

had a few days to put together outfits for SD Pride! On Friday we kicked off the weekend by attending the Rob Benzon Foundation Party. It featured lots of yummy food by local restaurants and plenty of cocktails…did we mention the sexy models in the Mankind fashion show? Mmmmmmm.

60 RAGE monthly | AUGUST 2012

our girl Deborah Cox perform and to dance with the sexy crowd. Jessica: Wow was Eden packed! Deborah rocked the house and it was nice to mingle with Rodney Santiago from the A-List New York and Emmet from Queer as Folk. I’m so sad that Eden closed its doors on Friday, July 27! Daisy: So many people! It had been a while since we were out dancing and we

kept it up till our sore feet said no more. I will miss frolicking at Eden. We hope everyone had fun and a great pride with their friends and family. That brings us to what’s coming up in August. We love the theater and we are

going to head to San Diego Repertory Theatre to check out Zoot Suit, which is showing through Sunday, August 12. Wednesday August 15 we will be at Brass Rail to celebrate our very own Pup

munity awards are being held Sunday, August 26 at the Marriot in Mission Valley.
