On occasion my ADD brain slows down enough to look around here in Cyrsti's Condo and notice the number of followers we are adding, a couple of link requests and the number of comments I receive here and through my email.
As always I am flattered and humbled when you think enough to stop in!
Speaking of comments, I have a couple to pass along...the first comes from Angel who made me feel a little better concerning my "liquid" eyeliner paranoia from the Three Years of Work post
"Liquid eyeliner? I can hardly blame you! The first time I ever tried using eyeliner, it was liquid, and the result was so horrible that I was scared of it for a long time. Luckily, a girlfriend showed me the error of my ways and introduced me to the crayon type of eyeliner, which is so much more forgiving.
I do use liquid eyeliner these days, but only occasionally, like when I want a more dramatic look... and have extra time, in case I make a mistake.
Oh, I guess I should also say something about Elladonna. Hubby watched the video with me and we both agree... very nice."
Thanks Angel! After watching Elladonna's video in what looks like her room- I wonder if she has ever been out?
The next comment comes from my "Bitchdom" post from Pat:
"It seems that more and more of us are getting out and about and mixing with the civilian population on a more and more regular basis.
Nevertheless there is still a large level of lack of understanding when civilians encounter someone presenting in their non-natal gender.
There are many folks who think that they are liberal and open minded but their level of pandering and patronizing is just below the surface.
My advise is to always work to be comfortable with yourself and let the pretenders wallow in their own thoughts.
Keep a smile on your face and perhaps those you meet may learn a thing or two."
A little background on Pat's comment. She is one by her own admission may not present as the most attractive woman in the world but still loves to go out and enjoy herself and engage others. Her words are another very effective way to network your feminine self and open the door to a new circle of friends!!!!
Once again my appreciation to all of you!!!!
