On the Move Again

Sometime soon, this weekend or the first of next week, I'll have my own place again. Vicki (my sister-in-law) has been helping me look for a place, with an eye towards getting my upstairs bedroom back. A couple at her church have a guest house they want to rent out as an apartment. They want $400/month, utilities included. I remember asking, "When can I move in?"

Moving won't be too hard. Most of my junk is still in the boxes from the previous move. In addition to the boxes, I've only got a bed, a TV and some small pieces, nightstands and end tables, mostly. This apartment is already partially furnished, so that's no problem.

I did get some static when I met my new landlords. It was still hot in October when I first went to see them, and I ran over there wearing shorts and flip flops. My blue-painted toes were very much in evidence, and the husband kept goggling at them. He doesn't know the half, but I've been assured that there won't be any problems.

Going to the Mall

Yesterday I found out that Victoria's Secret are having a sale this week. Among the featured items, selected styles of panties are 5 for $25. It's not a bad deal, for Vicky's. I found out about this because my sixteen year-old niece told me. She told me because she wanted someone to take her, and it looks like I might be the one to have earned the honor of escorting her. Once the trip was agreed upon, I asked if anyone (specifically her parents) objected to her being taken out by her aunt Jaye. There were no objections, so it looks like I'm going shopping tonight. I might even buy myself a little something. I've been a good girl lately. Mostly.

Transgender Day of Remembrance 2010


The above link is a listing of all of the known trans murder victims since last year's TDOR. Note that the first listed death was on TDOR. It never ends, does it?

That's all I've got right now.

Technical Difficulties III

I haven't really attended to this blog for a couple of days, which also means I haven't been reading others' blogs as well. Imagine my surprise when I logged in a few minutes ago and discovered that I'm not following ANY blogs. None. Where have they all gone? Apparently I'm not the only one this has happened to, but Google don't seem to know anything about it. "AGGGHHH!" as Charlie Brown has said many times.

The sad part of it is, I don't remember all of the URLs for all these blogs. Some of them are fairly distinctive, or otherwise memorable. Reassembling my list will take some time.

While I was typing this, I heard a most blood-curdling scream from outside. It was short and shrill, but repeated itself, over and over. Youtube tells me it is the sound of a fox crying. City girls like me don't know anything about these wild creatures. Close your eyes and listen to this and tell me it doesn't scare you shitless.


EDIT: Now my Reading List is back, as though it never left. Stupid shit indeed.
