I had a big debate yesterday morning with a stylist at Holts in Montreal about scarves. I admit that I'm not a fan (of scarves), though I'd probably enjoy them more if I could wear them like this model. Seeing as I spent most of last week in Montreal in my underwear, I definitely can relate:

I gave you a teaser yesterday of our drag performance for Day 4 of Montreal's Queer of the Year contest. The four other contestants and I performed "Stop" by the Spice Girls. Thousand person audience? Group choreography? Montreal Pride?
Yeah we did.
Here's our full performance:
And here's the recap rom Day 4:

I wasn't quite sure about this contest when I showed up in Montreal on Monday, but there is a full production team (in addition to all the support staff and advertising agency support), and they are producing some pretty great videos along with some pretty spectacular stunts for us here.
Sure, Tourism Vancouver is going to hunt me down and murderize me when I'm back in town for saying this, but I'm okay with that. Here's a teaser of the content you'll find tomorrow at the Queer of the Year(http://www.queeroftheyearcontest.com/) site.
Here's a recap from Day 2:
And did I mention that boyfriend Steve got a shout-out for the competition on Lainey Gossip
Yeah, no big d... no wait, BIG DEAL!

When's the last time you spent 16 hours with a group of virtual strangers? I'm pretty sure my group in Montreal is ready to get stabby with me. And I don't blame them. We went shopping today in the Atwater Market around 6am PST. Atwater is an outdoor/indoor market, sort of like Granville Island without the view. On the flipside, it had waaaaay more produce and meats and cheeses.
We attended Ateliers & Saveurs, a cooking school in old Montreal this morning to learn how to cook from a crack team of chefs and mixologists. It was a pretty amazing experience and a comparable one in Vancouver would be with the Dirty Apron, or any other reputable local cooking school.
Here are some shots from today. I still need your votes, so please don't hesitate to visit http://www.queeroftheyearcontest.com and click on the vote button. Thanks!!!
Trying to get the culinary masterminds to vote Team Horlor
Picking out my contribution to yesterday's challenge from the lobster tank... cold blooded!
Chef Whore... I know, right?
Check the QOTY website later today for videos from our cooking challenge. You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll binge and purge. It's that good. I promise.

So it looks like I'll be staying in the gayest dorm ever this week. Me and horsie are going to become besties. I can't wait.
And you know what that means. Vote for me... or vote for horsie on the wall. Maybe vote for both of us. But don't vote for that guy doing his nails on the bed. Or for the pile of clothes. I am serious.

In other news, Ste-Catherine St in Montreal is sort of like Davie St... except it's ginormous and entirely closed to car traffic during the summer... and super extra gay.
We're having our first challenge tomorrow, so check back and see how I fare. xx
