On the fourth day of Christmas her Tartness gave to us…
Three Christmas Lists
Two Tartlet Minis
And a Boy Toy on a Hay Bale
I should probably e’splain…
I’ve always gotten a good giggle out of a drag show. I like the trick of a man who is exquisitely beautiful and can nail a Bette Midler impression. But my real obsession with cross dressed men has a more complicated story…
It all started with the intersection of Monty Python and Harry Potter… (yes, really)
You SEE… when the load of Potter-crazed fans was waiting for the publication of Deathly Hallows… before it even had a name… probably as early as the BARELY OUT phase of Half Blood Prince, there was at HPANA a thread to discuss the evidence that JK Rowling was a Monty Python fan. There’s quite a lot of proof, actually.

And doesn’t Sir Codogan remind you of the Black Knight?
Anyway… in all this discussion I ran across a song… for your amusement, to the tune of the Lumberjack Song..
Hey a search turned up several options!

But here is the clip I saw:
I'm a Death Eater, and I'm okay.
I plot all night and I teach all day.
He's a Death Eater, and he's okay.
He plots all night and he teaches all day.
I take house points. I yell at kids.
I go to my dungeon.
On Wednesdays I'm at Hogsmeade.
Have butterbeer alone.
Since that time, I’ve taken all deatheaters for cross dressers (at least wearing pretties under their robes), but the idea has expanded as an appropriate ‘training’ for bad boys in desperate need of getting in touch with their feminine side. So HERE, I present to you four men who desperately need to spend some time in a corset and garter belt:
Oh, I know… he looks pretty darned good like this, and his impish grin is quite disarming, but the man is always so darned MACHO… I just think he could benefit from some time in a teddy at the far side of a whip, if you know what I mean…
This is a case of a man who just takes himself entirely too seriously and ought to lighten up. He’s a guy I really want in a tutu and bows, to be honest. I think he just needs to learn a little humility, and that is the kind of thing that might teach him.
Like Gerard, this is a man with some serious potential. I bet with pecks like that he could spin tassles… I’m just sayin’…
And my FAVORITE for the cross dressing treatment, but in this case because I’m ENTIRELY convinced he would know how to work it (you see… I have a friend who reminds me a little of Sawyer—hear that Phil? Naughty naughty naughty in all the right ways and a couple of wrong ones, but smarter than he lets on and his heart in the right place)
So those are the four I think desperately need to be cross dressed (unlike all those death eaters who already ARE, and I will leave you with this thought…
Because you see.... my whole theory on the matter is that stepping outside of the comfort zone a little helps us learn to PLAY, have a little FUN... maybe role play. It also can give some creative vent to those inner demons... sort of like writing...
