A night on the tiles

Another week shoots by eh? All good things come to s/he who waits? After a few less than productive shopping trips, I hit paydirt this week. Not only did I manage to get a pair of round toed stillies in my size (that were not cripplingly narrow) but a got a new wrap dress too. Yes, they may be soo last season, but then so are the ever flattering boot-cut trousers and I shan’t be chucking them out any time soon. Especially if the alternative is leopard-print. Hell, I’m a crossdresser and even I won’t touch that. Obviously, I’m just not down with the kids. 😀 The funny thing about buying women’s clothes when you’re a guy – and I […]

The weekend, at last

Coo. What a week! Busybusybusy. I’m glad that one’s over. How’ve you all been? Waste Have you been watching any of those lifestyle programmes on the telly recently? You Are What You Eat or Spendaholics? A while ago the Beeb used to run a programme called Your Money or Your Life – which I rather enjoyed to be honest. Anyhoo, initally the presenter would show a person their debt using one pound coins for each ten quid of debt. All rather simple. However, I think the media luvvies must of got bored of that – or moreover, thought we the simple viewing public would – and switched to more and more bizare representations of debt. So how is this wasteful? […]

Good times

Brain says ‘no’ Do any of you out there in radio, TV and blog land get this? You hit the ‘create post’ button, fingers hover over the keyboard and then…. zip. What you’d previously thought up as an oh-so witty start-up turns out to be, well, just b*ll*cks frankly. Thank the Lord for the delete key eh? Links Schminks Those of you with eagle eye action (note: this is not kinky TV slang) may have noticed a few changes to the Links section. I’ve added a few other blogs/homepages thingies and there’s also a link to Browsar. It’s a handy little program that runs a custom version of IE. This keeps all it’s footprints well hidden from the OS and […]

Not in the mood

Food Guilt Do you get this? You’re trying to watch your weight – well, in so much as you’re trying to cut down rather than watch is go up that is – yet realistically you’ve got to eat. Not eating makes the old metabolism go ‘Cripes! No food – absorb all calories!!’ and makes you ratty. So, I’m sat tucking into a small piece of birthday cake – see below – and my inner Gillian McKeith is saying ‘noooo!’ It’s a feckin’ birthday, you can’t not eat just a bit of cake. Yet, once you’ve eaten it, that’s it (unless you’re bulemic, but let’s not go there). Possibly then I should adhere to the advice about dieting of christmas – […]

Shopping

Q. What does every t-girl do when they’re feeling a bit miffed? A. Go shopping of course! So, rather than fight my gender conditioning (what does that mean? I have no idea!), I sloped off early from work and did a quick tour around Matalan and Next Clearance. Both stores had a big sale on, and you know what, there was nothing that caught my eye. Sometimes the sales are like that, you go in hoping to catch a bargain, but often it’s merely the collection of dodgy clothes they couldn’t sell earlier in the year at full price. In some stores, it seems they can’t shift them at a fraction of the price either. I went in hoping to […]
