Mid May Musings 2015

It's Tuesday night late, and I've had a few drinks.  Linda Lewis and I decided to get a bottle of Jack Daniels and stay home tonight.  So we did.  And we played Worms Armageddon on my Playstation 2.   My coworkers at Games Workshop gave me that Playstation on my last day working there in 2003.  It doubles as our DVD player.  Yes, we're poor.  :)

We have secured a new apartment.  We will be moving to Phoenixville.  Actually we will be a mile from Wife and Daughter.  The new apartment is far more affordable.  As Linda and I are used to bunking in the same room (two twin beds) it's a one bedroom.  We move on June 13.  We just couldn't afford this place anymore.  The new place is in a better neighborhood and did I mention we can afford it.  Thanks again to Zoey for moving into this place for many months and helping out.  Without her we'd be on the street.  She's back in Iowa now, taking care of her mother who needs her help.

I'm reading The Art of Fielding by Chad Harbach.  It's an amazing book.  I'm about 1/3 through it.  It's so well written that it almost makes me want to give up writing.  I can't recommend it enough!  It's so wonderful.

There is a certain bookstore out there that is being sued for discrimination by a Transwoman who was wrongfully terminated.  I will be commenting on this fully on TG Forum.  I have previously mentioned that I also work for a bookstore chain.  I must emphasize that the management of my store as well as the company in New York have been behind my transition 100%.  I couldn't ask for a more supportive place.  And the staff have been amazing.

I received my picture from Keystone 2015 taken by Cassandra Storm.  One is above.  I'm very happy with them.

It's getting late and the drink is making me very tired.  I can't drink like I used to (Thank God) and anymore when I drink I get a headache.  And I have one now.  My drinking has reduced to very little.  Which is great since I don't need it, and I need to lose weight.

In any case, I'm signing off.

Be Well!

    First - I love the picture.
    Second - I find it amazing how a store can be so supportive of an employee's transition, while another store can be so hurtful to another employee's transition. I'm glad for you that you have the support....

    Good luck in the new apartment....
