Another nail for my heart

Its been a funny sort of week, in truth, in more ways than one.

Earlier this week, the orange, bewigged Russian one threw enough of a temper tantrum that he got his way on one issue that has annoyed him. Seems the rule to stop Transgender people from serving in the American Military forces has been finally passed after numerous efforts. Even more amusing of course, in the week it was announced that one of the General’s who helped to fight for the independence of his country (assuming it isnt Russia?) was either a woman, or even more horrible for him, intersex.

The more amusing side of that is that at least 2 states (maybe more?) have already told him that they wont be getting rid of any transgender people already serving in their state military command groups, and will still accept applications from anyone desiring to do so. I’m sure if he hasnt already Tweeted (high security method, not) on the matter, he soon will be.

The other LGBT news I’ve heard today comes care of Australia, Sydney, to be exact

I must admit, there would have been a few cities that if you’d told me would be candidates to do it, Sydney would have been one of them. Thank you for the gesture. Not that I guess I would ever have seen it, even if my body hadnt totally given up on me, thats far too far away, but at least I know its there, which is something. Somehow I cant see the guy mentioned previously will be rushing to use that crossing somehow. I’d love to, but now especially, I think I might have to pass on that.

Why, you ask? Well, a couple of days ago, I had to post a letter to work, re my health issues, and I thought that as the post box was only about 200 yards away, and no one else was readily available to post it, I’d give it a go, and see how it went. Well, going down the hill was ‘interesting’ but I survived, just. Snag is, I then had to come back up the hill, and that was a whole different game! I did make it, but it hurt! I’ve also noticed that the stairs at home, when I’m carrying anything (especially full cups), are distinctly becoming a challenge, coming up. So yes, the old girl is definitely busted, for sure. I suspect unless something dramatic can be done to me, I wont be walking far in future. 😦

Oh, and talking of busts… As some already know, and others will now know, I look like I’ve got a decent cleavage. No, its not some magical hormone, or the fact I have a friendly fairy godmother who provided me with a decent pair of boobs. Believe me, if the latter was the case, I’d have got her to remove something else at the same time! Many women are unfortunate enough to have mastectomies due to breast cancer, a charity whose cause I used to support when I had any money. For those women, prosthetics are provided that give the image that they still have breasts. I’m not the only Transgender women that uses them, I’m sure, but we arent strictly the main market for them. These silicon breasts are fantastic, give a great look, are designed to be about the right weight, and are great, providing you dont put too much weight on them. I dont, I have a foam pair I use at night (vanity, I know), which can take just about anything. Of course, when I was in hospital, the pair I was using were the silicon ones, and they didnt take kindly to being slept in, especially the one on the side I slept on. So yes, its a bit damaged, and I’ve had to buy a new pair which arrived this week. More expense, ah well… Mind, if anyone knows of a similar vagina I could wear 24/7, without toilet issues, please let me know. Hiding ‘that thing’ would be heaven, and far less painful than surgery!

Right, video time. Bit of a clue in the blog title, how original!

In the summertime

Yes, well for a few days at least, it seems that finally summer has arrived here in Yorkshire. And arrived in style, it has to be said. Hottest day of the summer, I think it reached 80 here today, but dont quote me on that. All I can say is, it felt like it did. So of course today was the day that I had to end up walking miles lol!

Had an appointment at the beauty therapist this afternoon, getting the fingernails gelled up, a facial, and I now have less eyebrows than before too. So why all the walking? Well, at 1.30 there should be a bus to Wakefield, which runs close to where I go for treatment. Please note, I said should. Yes, you guessed it, still stood there at 1.40, and bus nowhere in sight. So, I got a bus most of the way, then walked from there. Unfortunately, from ‘there’, to the therapy place is pretty much an uphill walk. Not Alpe D’Huez, or anything like that, but for a middle aged, non sporting type, well its definitely uphill lol! And of course, I was running short on time by then too, for 2.00 appointment. Yes, I made it, and bus did eventually pass me at pretty much the last moment, but must have been 25 minutes late.

Anyway, treatment over, I head back to get a bus back down towards home. Oh dear! Apparently the road was closed further on, no bus was going to appear anytime soon! So I had the delight of a near 2 mile walk home, in blazing hot temperatures, wonderful. And yes, I was hot by the time I got back, and hopefully my arms will turn out tanned, not burnt, but knowing my luck… But alright, being out in just a t-shirt and trousers this summer was quite something.

Given the forecast for tomorrow, I’m hoping to get out again, hopefully the trains will be more reliable than the buses today, but wont hold my breath on that! Not certain where, just get out in the sun for a few hours somewhere, thats all.

Lastly, for all the cricket fans here, I saw the most amazing game tonight on Sky, Sussex v Gloucestershire. 40 overs, over 420 runs, and a 37 ball century from Scott Styris. Not many sides score over 190 in 20 overs and lose, but Gloucestershire did!

The music, an absolute oldie, and the least said about the sideburns, the better! But it just seems suitable, for a few days at least
