Another week zips by eh? Where does the time go? It’s funny, I think as an adult time moves differently than when you where a child. Well, okay, the perspective of time at least 🙂 As a child, time would (on occasion) *really* drag. You know, certain lessons, queuing, is it Xmas yet? Whereas as a adult time seems to be the opposite: it zips by and there doesn’t seem to be enough of it. Even with that extra 25th hour, I think they’d be stuff that just didn’t get done. But then, how much of what we do is important in the big picture?
There was a good turnout at Chams the other night – quite a packed event in many ways. I met a couple of new people, Sarah and Cherrie (thanks for the nail varnish remover, Cherrie!). In a nod to the 80s, I’d gone for leggings and a long top. Such is fashion eh? Apart from the usual witty banter and chat, the group decided that next month we’d have a party. After chucking about a few ideas for a theme, we settled on ‘movie stars’. Someone suggested a Chewbacca outfit but if so, that’s going to be one hell of a waxing appointment. 😀 Now, the questions are who to go as and how to put the outfit together? Something to think about during meetings eh? 🙂
While driving through the rain the other day, I found myself pondering how much of a link there is between fashion and our climate. Yes, I appreciate it’s quite obvious when you consider it in terms of ‘what to wear today’. However, I was thinking a bit broader than that. What if you lived in a climate where it was less varied than the UK? I wonder what it’s like for countries (and TG people in those countries) where the seasons are less defined. I mean make-up and a wig during the hot months? No thanks! 🙂 Then there’s all that skin that’s bared when in hotter climes. Equally, in a cold climate those summer dresses aren’t going to be of much use. While we may live in a world of global branding, some items are just not going to sell well.
While I do look at other people’s blogs, the places I go to a pretty much limited to the ones written in English (Ed: Babelfish? What’s that then?). I wonder what it’s like to be trans in another country? Africa, Japan, Sweden or South America for example? Perhaps there’s a bit of homework. 😀
