Independent Women…?


 I don’t really know what else to say but that. 

Were you at the Naked Girls Reading – Chicago Chapter? 

I certainly hope so.  If not, I’m NOT giving a full re-cap this time…so basically…yeah…you missed out. 

As I write this, I will begin by stating that I’m consuming my 2nd Moscow Mule…EVER.  I’ve never had one before and I’m finding it quite delightful and refreshing.  I’m drinking it proper – copper mug and all.  Hmmm…do I have this privilege because of my independence?

For the Naked Girls Reading – Chicago Chapter, the theme was independent women.  Wow…doesn’t that open up a can of worms?!

I started off the evening by reading the definition of Independent Woman by 

What do I have to say about it?  Eh…amusing. 

I also read a ridiculous article that was posted at

Now, if you were at the event, then you are fully aware of how this article got my panties into a twist.  Being that I wasn’t wearing any panties at Naked Girls Reading, it was sort of an experiment – and yes – it still got my feathers ruffled up.  When I first came upon the article, I wanted to put my fist through my computer monitor.  Yep…I’m hardcore like that.  Reading it aloud to an audience, well, I still felt the same way.  I kept my anger (somewhat ) under wraps for the reading, but, honestly, it was hard to hide my emotions toward this article.  I’m sorry, but ladies, if you’re going to put an article out into a public forum – DO NOT contra indicate yourself on an already delicate subject matter.  That is all I have to say on this.
I also read a little from the book “Are You There Vodka?  It’s Me Chelsea.’ by Chelsea Handler.   I LOVE THIS WOMAN. 
I love her in a way that can not be adequately described in a public blog.  However…in order for me to try to help you understand my infatuation, I want to leave you with this…
Is there anyone out there besides me who is in love with Chelsea Handler?  What about the Playboy spread?  Yeah…it was a tough pill to swallow when I realized she didn’t reveal any of her naughty bits.  You too?  Anyone with me on that?
The biggest surprise of the evening, however, was when I tossed the running order to the wind and surprised everyone, including the other Naked Girls, with an “improvisational piece.”   I was set to talk about Jenna Jameson in our last segment – and I did – briefly.   I fully respect her and I feel that she has done wonders to change the porn industry in favor of women.  After a little show and tell from her amazing autobiography “How To Make Love Like a Porn Star” which can be purchased here at  ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1279429044&sr=8-1, I promptly went into my next plan of attack. 
Completely straying from our set running order, I chose to talk/read about Michelle L’amour instead of Jenna Jameson.  Michelle L’amour has done so much for herself, the burlesque community, and women in general, that it seemed a shame to not honor her in this theme.
If you weren’t there for the performance, then I’m sorry, but you missed it.  And man did you miss it!!!!! 
I presented a great bio that made her blush and presented a few pictures for show and tell that supplemented her life story. 
Bringing us to present time, here are a few pictures that exemplify one of Michelle L’amour’s great accomplishments – creating her own burlesque troupe that took home the trophy for Best Group at The Burlesque Hall of Fame 2010.
Until next time,
Greta Layne
