Welcome to our first "Sunday Edition Post" here in "the Condo". Relax in your "jammies" with hot cup of your favorite coffee (or whatever) and let's get started!
Sports Section.- My Ohio State Buckeyes were beaten by Clemson primarily because of the worse defense I have seen in my life, conversely, my Cincinnati Bengals embark on yet another NFL playoff adventure-not a good experience in my past. In fact, the standing joke around here is, "when you feel the ground getting cold under your feet, it's hell freezing over-the Bengals are going to the Super Bowl." Actually it did 32 years ago when the Bengals played the same team they are playing today (San Diego) in the coldest game ever in the NFL. Close to -60 degrees (F). "Momma Karma's little sis Momma Nature" tried to go it again this year but missed it by one day. She shifted her cold breath up to Green Bay and spared us freezer until tomorrow - 40 below wind chill.
If you have ever heard the old "brass monkey" saying, the next couple days around here and a load of other spots in the U.S. should take heed. The revered proverb goes something like this, "Better bring your brass monkey in off the porch before he freezes his balls off." True, right? Unless he wants a quick head start towards SRS.
Week in Review.- New Year's Eve was another wonderful evening for me and among other things the third I have spent with Liz, my partner and the beginning of my third year on HRT. Of course we exchanged all the pleasantries back and forth here in Cyrsti's Condo. Thanks to all for checking in and all the best to all of you in 2014. Outside of our insulated world here, all sorts of transgender "best of" lists all starting to appear. At least in this country, the anti closeted stealth transgender women and transgender men, are helping to raise the bar for all of us. Which brings us to our next section.
We Got Mail.- As you all know, I'm quick to jump upon my soapbox and blast all the transgender community who "jumped closets". They transitioned then went away. On the other hand there were just as many or more who refused to accept their true gender identity and stayed in my cross dressing closet. (Me) Shel le , who is close to my age, pointed out in one of my posts, "it was a different world back then." She is right. I think finally we "T"'s in the LGBT system learned from the gay and lesbian community on how to advance our own agenda. We are seeing it now on many fronts.
To finish 2013, we also became entrenched in discussions of how genetic men interact with transgender women - or don't. We covered hardly earth shattering thoughts like how insecure men are with their sex and indeed their whole gender. As those of us who grew up as card carrying members of the male gender know, men have precious little to hang their gender hats on. I'm not being a male basher here but men just live in simpler systems than women and when one of us wants to "jump" ship, it's cause for concern. First, those damn women were allowed to vote, allowed to work in the same jobs and even are starting to manage companies? What's this world coming to...the unkindest cut of all. Men wanting to be women and just maybe I want to talk to her??? Quite the dynamic we can discuss forever.
So much for this "Sunday Edition" here in the Condo. I look forward to our upcoming week and may Momma Karma smile on you and do something about her " Sis" Nature.
