#133 – Fine Tuning, Tuning Out (She posted twice in one day!)

Fine tuning: Behind the scenes tweaks under the hood, so far, all is working, and hopefully will continue working. Security updates, more cool stuff.  (But where is the content, oh, birthday girl?)

The short version: I came out to my younger sister a few months back, and she is accepting and supportive. My two closest friends here in Phoenix pretty much called it. ^_^;
(She gave me one of her Coach purses, and I have a Sephora gift card waiting for me. *beamles*)

Tuning out: Another blog on the sidebar is gone: Jessica-Who.com winked out a few months back. I won’t ask questions, or wonder, but I remember she posted something a while back about when transgender and crossdresser blogs close down, and various reasons why. Now, she’s one of the many who have vanished.

#128 – Nice Try….

Someone tried to brute force password reset to take over this blog. It is NOT dormant. I’m just busy with other things going on from time to time.

In any case, today was a good time to do full backups of everything on the website, harden security in a few areas, and rotate my passwords. Thanks for reminding me, chummer.

Still here, still out there when I can, still dealing with the lovely Arizona heat in Metro Phoenix…

#126 – Why I Marched in Phoenix…

Mainly to show Mr. John Kavanagh (one of our Arizona representatives, and head of the State House Appropriations Committee, who brought us SB1045), and others that you have not broken my spirit.

There are several others in line ahead of them I have to deal with. The reason to be, to exist, is more important. I will not go back into a closet for anyone. Not family, not those who also fear (different kinds of fear?) and definitely not the state (if they harbor or are persuaded by the same fear.)

#123 – Stuff I Don’t Regret Challenge (001) – “That LBD” And Memories At Sun Valley Mall

More or less stuff, trans or not, that I’ve done over the last 25+ years, that I’d more or less do again, regardless.

SunValley Mall in Concord, California – Kind of a special place in my life… I’ve been there at least half a dozen times over the past 20 years, stemming from a visit there in the late 1980s or early 1990s, when there was still an arcade there (I remember playing Taito’s arcade game adaptation of Rambo III), and the Atari Lynx handheld game system was introduced to the masses. Quite a bit has been written about it (And not just about the air crash tragedy that happened just before Christmas 1985) – check out the write-up and vintage postcards posted up by BigMallrat.

For me, it was a place to explore in my wanderlust, when I’d road trip around Northern California. I’ve been there quite a few times, especially within my last few years I lived in California. Sometimes, I wonder what my life would have been like, if I had lived in Concord, Martinez, or even Walnut Creek or San Ramon?

#121 – Another Facebook mirror mini-post

Did I mention I like being pampered? Massages (even those chairs with the “magic fingers” – put in me one for more than 30 minutes, and I will meow like the kitty that I am. =^_^= ), manicures, a trip to the hair salon (Hi, Mario – Thanks for taking care of me today! ^_^; ), and I’m sure there’s more.

I’m eager to have a makeover, probably at MAC or Sephora, or somewhere…

#120 – Facebook mirror mini-post

You know, I really should just do some mini-posts more often. If nothing else, it’ll give me more of an excuse to post here more often.

So tired… but I know I’ve got some things to write about… about some really cool things I’ve done over the years when I lived in California. A lot of them, I’d do all over again, and I don’t regret.
