There's No Place Like Home

I had a late flight last night.  I'll be posting tomorrow though.

I came home, changed into my nightie (yay!) and Zzzzzzzz

The Name Game

I generally sign e-mails.  I know not everyone does ~ there is a return address, after all.

I probably send an equal number of e-mails from my male account as from a Meg account.

I noticed recently I stop Every Time and think about how I'm supposed to sign.  Most people I write to as Meg know I'm trans and would understand "oops.  That's my male name" as a response to the obvious question.  The other way... it would take more than an "oops.  That's my girl name."

By the way, I'm heading back to VA this afternoon.  It's been a no girl stuff, except for passable stuff and even that is scarce.  White cotton panties, plain girl socks, unexceptional girl pjs.  I'm wearing boy jeans because I have more pocket space, in lieu of carrying my small bag.

Down in the Valley

Today is supposed to be Silicon Valley day.  Marian knows what I need to see here.

We may go down as far as Monterrey.  Who knows?  I'm writing this last week and plans change so much I won't even speculate.

Um, I'm Out Today

But away out, not out out.

I'm in San Francisco today.

Actually, I'm starting the day in San Francisco and I'll be finishing the day in San Jose or somewhere in the valley.

I'm pre-posting this before the trip but if all went according to plan we visited Alcatraz and they let me leave.  We also stopped at spots on the waterfront, Coit Tower, Chinatown, maybe Berkeley.

I tried desperately to get a tour of the Tesla factory but I couldn't convince them.  I tried everything except bribery.  Hey, I'm still Jewish.  I have limits.  :)

NO dressing this week.  I won't even be able to do girl clothes shopping, alas.  I can probably get a nice Rice-a-Roni dinner though.

Sunday Funnies ~ Arlo and Janis

This strip has been around for over 25 years.  Arlo reminds me a lot of me, except a bit less inhibited.

Here are a few of my favourites:

The Darlings of CIDU

Back in the last millennium, I used to be a daily reader of a website called Comics I Don't Understand.  Bill Bickel is still producing the site, although now it's a blog.

He posts comics he, um, doesn't understand.  Sometimes, other people alert him to inscrutable comics; in the past, sometimes that other people was me.  Sometimes, I would explain (or try to explain) comics posted on the site.

He had a page called the "Arlo and Janis page."  He'd put comics there that he didn't understand but the explanation might not be family suitable.  A&J showed up there the most; hence the name of the page.

If this sounds familiar, I mentioned this about eight months ago, when I featured some Arlo and Janis cartoons.

For old times sake, I explained yesterday's A&J, which Bill had posted on the blog.

Here are a few cd-ish A&J cartoons.

How does he know?  Follow up, Janis!

It goes with the skirt

We can, but it's hard work

You just don't understand, Arlo.
You really don't understand!

Cami Fail

The day before the Tom Paxton show, I tried on a top and skirt I wanted to wear.  The top was a purple textured tank.  It's fitted (with a side zipper), has wide straps to cover bra straps and is very pretty.  It looked fine.

The day of the show, I put it on with my preferred bra and pads and... nope.  Definitely not.  Nope.  Not gonna work.

Fortunately I had other options and since I had shaved pretty thoroughly the previous day I had a LOT of other options.

The cami fail is below.

But... I LOVE this camisole top!
