January 21, 2009

well here it is "new beginnings" like the start of a new day or a clean piece of drawing paper. that along with the start of a new year.
we now have a new president who has given us great hope for the future. may god give him strenth and wisdom as he will need it.
i liked the "we " in his speach and his closing comment that a decendent of someone not welcomed into certian stores could become the highest leader in the country. and this doesn't just refer to his heritage but all of us that are decendents of immagrents. my families came form ireland and germany and the irish were told they were not wanted accept as workers. and so it has gone with each new immagrent until they "have" become "us" as friends, relitaves and neighbors. then suddenly it's " oh he's not a foreigner he's just our "*" what ever (friend , relitive ect.)
we in the trans comunity and those in the greater community of the glbt really are only begining to understand this. "we" are part of a greater community that of the united states and the world and the human race. it is all part of the evolution of the human race. educaton brings wisdom. and the importance of fitting in and somewhat blending in .

sorry i got off the usually places i went and clothing choices today but i needed to share this in print.

meanwhile back in the jungle LOL i have had several chances to get out as diana in spite of the 6 degree temp outside this past week. it just ment digging out my heavier tights (i prefer panty hose) longer wool skirt, dress boots, fancier sweaters and long wool dress coat. now if that isn't bad enough just attempt this quick change "on the run" when it is this cold out.
ok i'll let you in on a secret actually the advantage of it being this cold out is i could wear it all onder slax and ... sometimes i used a womans cotten manish blouse with womans sweater vest. sooo only the dress coat got changed and i only needed to "loose" the slax. most times i usually have allready applyed a light coat of makeup at home so this cuts the change time too.

anyway to all those in the colder weather areas stay warm.

happy new year everyone!

it is said in an old supperstition that what one does on the first day of the new year one does the rest of the year! LOL but that just gave me an excuse to go out dressed as diana both last night and today! yeaaa! has been soooo very unusually cold for a dec. nj . yesterday was 20 degrees outside with a wind chill that made it like 0 degrees.
so i had to break out the longer marone leather skirt and black boots and today i even sore a sweater blouse along with my black long dress coat.
weatherwise today was a bit better since the wind died down.
an i actuall found places to go shopping both days! LoL nothing fancy just the food store today LOL but i did check out a couple department stores in an open air mall near me.
last night i got back by 8pm in time to spend the remainder of the evening with famialy welcoming in the new year.

also along with the afore mentioned supersition and since i am a muscian and car buff i try to do al little something related to both of those items as well.

today i prepared our famialys' treditional new years dinner of pork chops baked with sour kraut along with mashed potatos and green beans.
a delightfull dinner for my dad and i.

on another note i just checked my taly for going out as diana this past year and figured out i had managed to get out 61 times this doesn't include when i dress in womans slax and shirt blouse when i am in guy mode nor does it include most bed times in a satin night gown.
as i keep saying for someone who say they are not planning to transition i seem to be dressing as diana more each year. this past year was only about 3-4 more days than the last but that was 3-4 more than the previous.
i know this only represents about 1/8 of the year but i never thought i could become so passable and classy dressed meany years ago. nor did i expect to be soooo accepted as to be told by 1 or 2 gg's that i look almost better as a woman. in fact when i stop by the one consignment shop in guy mode she asks if i can change and squeezee in some diana time!

in retrospect it has been a busy several years betweeen my mothers passsing and with in 6 months an uncle and then this past year an aunt with her house to clean out. wow it has been non stop and a wonder that i had any diana time. it is just though shear determanation that i get any diana time at all.
part of the trick is to have a diana tote with some extra supplies for the switch. ie jewlery, shoes blouse of the day and skirt along with foundaton undies and almost forgot (how could i forget this LOL) unless i wear all this (includeing light make up) under my guy clothes and then shed them sort of like a fem super hero LOL. along with the coat to match the weather in nj (where one can roast or freezee)
whew just talking about all that prep work is exsausting for this blond! LOL

and with that it is time for some hot chocolete and some much need beauty rest.

again happy new year to all and to all a good night!
