Gee, it's quiet between my ears today. The trans meeting was good last night except for I couldn't make the 'after meeting' at a near by coffee shop. If you know meetings, the after meeting is where the "heavy lifting" takes place and peeps begin to form bonds.
I will the next time around!
Other than the meeting, on the way out, one of the building administrators stopped me and commented on my hair. She fibbed and said she liked the color and I said gray? But then I asked her had she ever tried the "Vibrant Violet" I have been addicted to recently and she said yes. Then I asked if she had tried any of the "power reds" I was considering next, the answer was yes again.
Hair color is heavily on my mind-no pun intended. I need to DIY before the bar mitzfah in a week and have two picture ID's to update...
Plus I have to keep up with my 14 year old granddaughter, who (if she can come up with half the money) is pushing her Mom hard for a blue "ombre" color job before the evening. The quote was "well, J.J. (me) has violet hair so what's the problem? That is NOT my granddaughter in the picture but you all know what I think!
What else is going on? I'm still between genders with the VA today, but I was able to hand deliver the latest documents they needed to get the job done. Of course, new forms were needed after the first of the year-of course. The man in charge of all of it said if he can make contact with the right peeps, we may 'git-r-done' yet this week.
I'm sure the whole process will move faster when someone in the system figures out they almost got it right by changing my gender to female.
What I'm really waiting for though is an almost immediate trip to get my VA photo I.D changed.
Several of my friends are requesting a "rite of passage" ritual-maybe I could start by burning the old ID's?
