Words of warning and welcome:

This is very much my blog, so don't be surprised if this doesn't follow accepted patterns and norms. Obviously it started out as a blog about my cross-dressing but it has developed a great deal since then. It is a place where I can be anonymous and honest, and I appreciate that.

It will deal with many things and new readers would do well to check out the New Readers' Page above this and the tag down there on the right. Although there's nothing too bad in here there will be adult language, so be careful. If you think this needs a greater control, please let me know. Thank you!

Don't Stop Moving

It's been an intense, but positive, couple of days. I have been observed at work, run an interview where I have increased my empire whilst remaining loyal to a colleague who I have grown to really value at work and now I have read two, count 'em, two articles on Cracked (of all places) that I find incredibly challenging. In short, despite not getting all my marking done, it has been a big few days. Oh, and I did my foot in and couldn't walk all Saturday or Sunday. Friends were round, it went well, and despite a lack of bar-crawl a good time was had with Jeremy and family and also Phillip, the Jeremy stand-in friend I had at University. They really are very alike. Though Phillip remains single and profligate while Jeremy is married, with a small child, and really quite wealthy.

So, in short, I can say, with confidence, that I am feeling less shitty than I have been too. It has been a productive few days even if I haven't got all my work done. I mean, I managed to do my lesson that stresses me out (in a good way) to the best of my ability, even if it meant getting bailed out by a sympathetic observer over my shitty marking (I'm crap at making it regular). It was nice. The students really enjoyed it in a way that I've not seen students engage with since... oooh, about 2005. I think it shall be a day long remembered, which, given the nature of it, is good. Then, today, we had interviews which were relaxed, and professional, throughout. At the end of the day I was able to fight the corner of my colleague and gain a really enthusiastic excellent new teacher on my staff at the same time. Yay! It was a very positive experience and I feel no guilt nor regret at any of it. Yay! And my colleague is happy and gets to stay! Yay! Okay, I remain a very selfish person.

And, like I said, there are a bunch of articles that you need to read:

A Man in a Grocery Store - fighting the patriarchy
A blog relevant to our interests. Politically astute and socially powerful.

A Cracked article: why men hate women.
Glasgow, Socialism and modern gentrification. Emo-porn.
