#90 – Avatar Standardization Project Continuing…

… As I’ve adapted a “Gravatar” finally for this myself on this site.

So now, I look about the same as I do elsewhere – PINKessence, Flickr, Facebook, YouTube, LiveJournal, Twitter where else? ^_^;

Yes, I love my little black dress, and my long stretchy black gloves, and that necklace, and that look, and those wistful, emotive eyes… I bet you’re wondering what I was thinking of when I took that picture…. Right? Maybe not?

#89 – Let’s Go Back In Time… (The “Dark Ages” – 1994/1995…)

And I’m on the “real” internet for the first time. (Not Prodigy’s WWW-proxy version of it, not America Online, not even Delphi’s text-based representation – Yes, I was on Delphi, CompuServe, AOL, Prodigy, even GEnie – You name the serve, I was on it, but that’s another story that’s not even appropriate for here – This is about the proto-genesis of Julie Anne Morgan, ok? ^_-;) – I was on Netcom (which became Mindspring, then Earthlink.) – Netcom, which was headquartered in San Jose, CA in the mid 1990s.

You get curious, you wander, and you find out things – It was at this time I found the first few sites out there, including Melanie Anne Phillips’ initial chronicles of her journey, and her voice lessons. (Her voice blew me away when I heard it.) – I also found the TG newsgroups on Usenet. That was an experience that more or less drove me back into hiding – The old familiar “Trannier-than-thou” attitude was quite prevalent on there. I wasn’t one for hanging out, debating on newsgroups, forums, or bulletin boards, debating or nitpicking over little things, needing to prove I was right, and they were wrong, or finding it necessary to have the last word. I’m not like that today, either. I knew my limits, and I didn’t want to ever have to deal with having my ass handed to me, or getting flamed. That’s also why I don’t participate on forums much to this day, even in PINKessence. (One of my friends on there has left PE recently, because of some unfortunate squabbles there. I miss her. ;_; )

#88 – A Meeting That Wasn’t One… (“Thank You…”)

(This is one of the blog entries I had to get out and post. As promised, there are earlier stories over the last two months that needs to be posted.)

Back in the summer of 2009, there was a young man (the term “young” being a figurative one – Though he continued to age with each passing year, he never really completely grew up.), who, in spite of having a job where he was making enough to just barely pay the bills, provide for his mainstream hobbies, and of course, have friends who shared that common interest, there was a secret he kept hidden from just about everyone who knew him.

As you may have figured out, that young man was me, in the last vestiges of what is rapidly becoming a “past life.”

The young man, in doing some searches via Google, came across a series of photos of a young lady in a schoolgirl outfit. Upon closer inspection of her Flickr photostream, that look was only one of about a hundred different looks, and she had thousands of followers and admirers.

#87 – “Wow, I Thought You Abandoned This Site…” ^_^;

For lack of a better title – I’ve been quiet on here for just over two months, yet, I’ve been doing lots of activity during that time – Social outings with the River City Gems up in Sacramento, CA, things with other friends, going to school, looking for work, and starting up a program on Rainbow Mix Radio. (Or, more accurately, my “twin brother” has. ^_^; )

Granted, I haven’t had a shortage of anything to say, I just haven’t collected my thoughts, and set aside time to get it written. I’ll spend the next few days and weeks making up for that. Hopefully I’ll remember the more interesting things over the last eight weeks or so.

Stay tuned, space travellers! ^_-;
