There are some days when the urge to write, or perhaps more accurately – to blog, are very strong. Equally, there are other times when your mind is empty; empty of the desire to get something off your chest. That may be a point of view, a confession or on occasion, a rant. This week has been a quiet week. I don’t like drama, so life is good. May we all live in quiet times. 🙂
So, on with the braindump 🙂
The other day I was reading through Jo’s Blog… which lead me to Diary of a Hope Fiend… which lead me to the Gender Analyser site. It’s one of those word analyser thingies that let you pop a URL in and it goes away to tell you the gender of the person who’s writing the web site.
Of course I put this in. 🙂 I am a blogger and blogs are all me-me-me right? 🙂 I can think of the following reasons for the result:
1. The code’s off a bit 🙂
2. Somehow I’m screening my ‘male’ language.*
3. It’s the comments that tipped the balance.
( * True ‘cos my other site came up 95% bloke. Maybes some trans folk are only 1/3 male! That would explain why we can accessorize, walk in heels and still undo the lids of jars 😀 ).
Anyway, it’s not a p*ssing contest, just for fun:
We think http://yatgb.blogspot.com is written by a woman (67%).
Our survey said? Eek-errrkkk! 🙂 If I was feeling particular macho (Ed: or a film nerd) I could have said: “Errk! Wrong answer Hans!” 🙂 A polite hand clap to the first person who can name the film.
Rats. Film quotes *and* music lyrics. My name is Lynn Jones and I am a wordaholic. 🙂
Obligatory Trans Stuff
Next week it’s the Christmas Party for Nottingham Chameleons. This year has a theme. Quite possibly the wine was flowing rather well at the time suggestions were being made. We are, apparently, going for an Abba theme. While I couldn’t get hold of a powder blue jump suit, my outfit is sorted.
I am, again, providing the tunes for the evening. I’m no DJ that’s for sure although hopefully the home-brew Abba megamix will keep us on our toes when it’s time to cut some rug.
For a wheeze I added Followers to my Blogger apps. I guess it’s a bit more than the blogroll thingy that most of us do. But there’s something that freaks me out a bit. It’s the term follower… It makes me feel like some cult leader or something.
Now got into the world my friends…. and do nice things…. and look glamorous!
