Day Laboring at WOW

Victoria Pork Chop Parker RuPaul Queerty Michelle Visage Merle Ginsberg Jiggly Caliente james st. james guest bloggers Fab Bradford Shellhammer Big Freedia Hi. This is Bradford Shellhammer. I am just some guy who stalks the World of Wonder team and somehow managed to get in the building and convinced WOW to give me the desk/computer typically used by Mathu Andersen and Michelle Visage. Though I have no clue how Michelle uses a God damned keyboard with those nails. Needless to say this desk is littered with false lashes, glitter, and weird Cheetah print art. I feel oddly at home.

I used to blog. A lot. But not so much anymore (thanks Instagram). So bare with me, I am little rusty. But it’s not my first time at the rodeo as I was the founding editor of Queerty and I also helped create Design Within Reach’s Design Notes blog. And I also started this little company called Fab.com, where James St. James buys all his dinnerware and sex toys. I am not in a wig or in lashes or in pumps like typical WOW day laborers, but I am going to try bang out a few posts before I get drunk. And at noon, I am already drinking.

This place is a shrine to RuPaul. He’s everywhere. I mean EVERYWHERE. As someone who adores Ru, I am cool with this, but I am a little nervous. It’s like I am being watched.

I was almost hoping to find previous Drag Race contestants here working. Could you imagine Victoria Pork Chop Parker answering phones, Jiggly Caliente cleaning the restrooms, and Madame La Queer fetching lunch? But, no, they’re nowhere to be found. But it’s also a maze in here so who knows if I’ll find Merle Ginsberg in a corner office. The day is young.
