Year you were crowned Queen: 1995
Number of years you’ve ridden the bus: 20
Where did you get your Bag Ladies Name: “pulled it out of my ass” when asked.
What is your spirit animal or your secret power: Pussy Cat
What is something about you people assume is true that isn’t: I did not push Cadillac Barbie off the stage when she was crowned. She was drunk and fell all by herself. (Not that I wouldn’t have!!P
Who/What inspired you to ride the Bus Tour for the first time: Dennis Stover/Georgia Peach
Favorite Bus Tour Theme: All of them (that I rode on) but especially the Jewels and Tool Tour
My favorite memory of the Bus Tour: The year my daughter rode the bus. I told her to be careful where she sat and don’t sit next to Ricky. Oh, well she did and he proceed to open his purse and spill the entire illegal contents on her and the seat. It was pretty funny!
My favorite Bag Ladies Sister: Georgia Peach, Crystal Flash and Blossom (of course).
Why did I want to be Bag Ladies Bus Queen: Because it was an honor to be recognized by my peers for all the fund raising we had done and kept doing. It is and will always be an honor to be recognized as a former Queen.
What does once a Queen, always a queen mean to you: See above. Also, the opportunity to raise money to fund DEFA. Whenever I visit Indianapolis being recognized by, not just my peers, but by others in the community for what I (we) did warmed the cockles of my heart.
What is your biggest accomplishment as Queen/former Queen: Raising money. The more we raised the more we (I) want to do more… and more. Oh, and pushing Cadillac Barbie off the stage… (LOL)
What would you most like to be remembered for: My hair and boots. My attitude. And, always looking for ways to make more money.
When a cure and a vaccine for HIV are discovered and HIV no longer exists, what will the Bag Ladies do next: Oh, I believe we as an organization will always find a worthy cause to continue our fund raising. A good Bag Ladies job is never done.
