Miss Vanjie… Miss Vanjie… Miss… Vanjie.

***SPOILER: If you still haven’t seen season ten, episode one of RuPaul’s Drag Race, my new love –nay, obsession — then get current and prepare for a walk down Meme-ory Lane…

I had to post this or I would literally have peed my pants from unrequited sharing.

RuPaul’s Drag Race, you guys. The new obsession in our home. It’s brilliant, poignant, insightful, hilarious, and often cringy. We met and fell in love with Miss Vanessa Vanjie Mateo, only to have her snatched (pun unintended and I’m leaving it) away all too soon.


A dramatic interpretation of me and the GF watching that night’s episode:

Me: Awwww, how sad! I liked her.


GF: (watches silently, blocking me out)

Me: Poor thing!  She made friends with everyone and already has to leave. I would be so upset!


GF: (turns up volume)

Me: … why is she saying her name a bunch of times though? Is that a thing from earlier??



Vanessa Vanjie Mateo and her endearing, albeit confusing exit, captured our hearts and imaginations that night, and of course, the avalanche onto Meme-ory Lane has been generous.


Those in this post are just a few of my own that were inspired by The Muse, Vanjie.
