Earlier this week I found myself surfing through the links on the RSS feed. Some links seemed to be dead and after a quick reccy, I found and fixed the dead ones. If I’ve not been your way for a bit, that’s why!
On a whim, I decided to have a good look through the news section on the Angels web site. While there two things caught my eye.
One is the image in the Smoother Transition article (go and have a read if you like). The (drawn) image is of a keyboard and a pair of hands typing. The left hand is suitably macho with the grey suit jacket while the right hand sports longish polished red nails and a white bracelet. I don’t know what it is about that particular image, but it held my attention. Maybe it’s the thought of the inner transness being on display or just being in on the joke. Who can say?
BTW, you’ll note I didn’t say ‘female’: or maybe you did, I’m not psychic. 🙂 I don’t know many, nay *any* women, who wear there nails like that. Actually, I did know one young lady who sported a full set of Krugers and she didn’t half struggle to type. She must have gone through a shed load of tights too. Not that I’d know anything about that. 🙂
[ side note: I had one of those conversations this week. One lady from the office was talking about shoes and how she was being nagged by her husband for buying yet another pair. “But you have to have some that go with an outfit don’t you! How many pairs do you have?” she asked. I managed to stop myself from nodding in agreement…. and it seems most guys have 2 – 4 pairs. So I’m not abnormal 🙂 I just have a few other pairs for special occasions 😀 ]
The second thing – and there seems to be an ‘image’ theme this week – is I noticed the Angel Flickr stream and I decided to have a look. I found the whole stream – well, not all of it, I didn’t go A to Z! – very interesting. Firstly, there’s the variation in looks that we try: natural, foxy, out & about, etc. Then there’s the backgrounds. The day-to-day scenery: kitchens, stairs, living rooms, pubs or public spaces. For a group of people who often seem so keen to stay hidden, there’s a remarkable amount of stuff on the web. Not that I’m judging, there’s the odd snap of me on here (Ed: “odd” being the word).
I also find myself wondering what people look like behind the carefully applied make-up and wig. To push on from that, there are a few brave souls who’ll do a before and after. The difference is quite surprising. I don’t think I’m quite ready for that just yet. 🙂
In slightly less jolly news: yesterday was the TG Day of Remembrance. A day to remember those people who are no longer with us.
