Good weekend? I hope so. Fabby weather!
Last week’s meeting was a bit different. We had an Annual General Meeting. You can tell it was important because it had capital letters (Ed: English is just an nationality to you, isn’t it Lynn?). Anyhoo, it went rather well (IMO). I had a bit of a wardrobe dilema over what to wear. In the end, I went for my hippy skirt (brown + tie dye), a biscuit coloured top, the usual fishnets (not back on to plain yet) and my favourite heels (not sure about flats yet). Someone said I looked like a secretary, which made me laugh! Maybe I’ll take a photo in to the admin team at work and swap ideas. 🙂
We had a full house with many of the usual suspects and regular irregulars coming along. The meeting kicked off around 8.30ish and there was a very good spread provided. For my sins, I had volunteered to take the minutes while Paula was – ahhh – chairwoman. The minutes are on the Chameleons’ forum if you’re really interested (see side panel for a link and then select the forum option).
Midway through we broke for nibbles and to sip some Bucks Fizz. Somehow, I ended up being bottle opener as most folk didn’t seem to like the sudden cork popping. Hint: twist it slowly and it won’t shoot off. 🙂
The group discussed a number of matters cooly and calmly (s that a word? Ah well!). So, the subs are up to 3 quid 50 (no biggie), we have some more volunteers to do the admin tasks (like tidying up, making tea, web design, etc) which can only be a good thing.
The group has been running for nearly 25 years which I think is very impressive. Although it would be very hard, it would make a fascinating documentary / book on who attended the group and where their life has taken them since.
Jane had even kept the minutes from the last meeting – way back in 1988! Wow, 1988. I was a teenager back then. While I knew I was trans, I was cool about it at that point. It didn’t start freaking me out until a year or two later. But, enough about me, what were you doing in ’88?
