My Human Being of the Week is Voracious V. She is a kind hearted, fiercely talented, purple goddess. Over the past few years, Vancouver burlesque dancers like Jessica have introduced me to the idea that "sexy" is more about your attitude than the shape of your body. After my first burlesque class, I felt so empowered that I went out and bought my first pair of high heels, even though I had no idea how to walk in them and when I wear them people refer to me as a "giant".
On top of being an incredible dancer, Jessica is also the kind of bar manager who will make a soothing remedy involving ginger and bitters for the sad hostess who is tripping on the side effects of her new anti-depressants, and let her go home early. I'll never forget that.
If you would like to see her perform while also watching ME perform, you should get tickets for the Biltmore's Adele Tribute night. I highly recommend it.
