Trivial things

Here’s a Larry King-esque list of facts about me. (and if you don’t care, why are you reading?) ;)

My original femme name was Lisa Anne. (I’m not counting Lois Lane, which was my Halloween costume that fateful Halloween night.) Under that name, I set up my Yahoo account, which is why my Yahoo addy still has that name. As my flickr is set up under that email, I haven’t bothered to change it.

I changed my name in December of 2008. I went to Femme Fever for my first ever makeover and photo session. Karen asked about my name, and I said it was open to discussion. She looked at me (I was blonde and dressed in a red dress) and said “You should be Sophie. I have a strong feeling about this. You are Sophie.” I never ignore strong feelings. I have been Sophie ever since. I added Lynne because I like the sound of it.

My first night at Renaissance was December 2008 as well. I didn’t wear makeup. I felt like a fool. At Laptop lounge after, I wasn’t aware there was a cover. Jone payed it for me. I have bought her many drinks since.

My first time as Sophie in a “non-safe” place was at a rest stop in New York State in 2010. My friend Jen stopped and dragged me in. It was a rest stop/mall. I was nervous as hell!

My first night out as a woman (Halloween 2008), my breasts were birdseed in cut pantyhose. I learned this trick from the internet. I have become a bit better at doing breasts.

Showing off

I had a MySpace page for quite some time as Sophie, but have since cancelled it. I wasn’t using it and I didn’t need it out there waiting to bite me.

I always dreamed of going to a casino and sitting at the tables as Sophie. I’ve been to a small casino twice as part of the Keystone conference, but haven’t played. Vegas, baby! Someday…

At the Casino

Ok, all that is just wonderful. But again- who cares? Well, it’s the little trivia that makes experiences. Moments and experiences build to make up a life. And it’s this life that I write about here in an effort to understand it all. Oh and so you can follow along at home. “Sophie Lynne: the Home game”

We all have the little things that make up our lives. Small dreams, big dreams, and just desires. Some of us dream of finding jobs. Others desire to return to a life of normalcy, albeit in their chosen gender. Many just want to be ourselves. Others want a Porsche. Everyone has their dreams. Many who read this blog share a dream in common and in a way that makes us a family.

Or at least distant cousins? 

And that's not trivial!
