Weird websearch of the day

transgender wig vanity saw put didn't lists this blog as third.

Don't do that to me, Badgers!

My Wisconsin Badgers almost gave me heart failure with the way they started their first round game in the NCAA men's basketball national championship tournament. They let Texas A&M-Corpus Christi score the first 10 points, and were behind 18 at one point. Late in the first half they finally woke up, though. The final score was 76-63.

Next up, UNLV on Sunday. I hope Wisconsin has gotten whatever it was that was bothering them at the start of the game out of their system for the rest of the tournament. I don't need to tempt heart failure.

My picture

I've always hesitated a bit (OK, more than a bit) to put my picture here, for all the world to see. I'm kind of a private person. And shy. But since I already put it on my MySpace page, I figured it wouldn't hurt.

So there I am, in one of the very few pictures of me that I really like. I was seated, and the photographer was standing. I think he may have been holding the camera above his head, also. So the picture is at a lovely angle that completely hides my double chin, and de-emphasizes my shoulders--and it even shows my cleavage a little (being able to do good cleavage is the big advantage of being a fat crossdresser). Also, I wasn't posing. I never seem to get a good smile when I pose. It always looks unnatural--which it is, of course.

That is not my latest hair-do, though. A few weeks ago I got a new wig. It's a little longer, and a little fuller, with a bit more range of color. If I ever get a nice picture of me in it I'll use that. But don't hold your breath.

I'm also wearing one of my favorite pair of earrings in the picture--but I lost one of them recently. I really do miss being able to wear them.

The Pentagon finally begins to get it

Pentagon: Iraq in Some Ways in Civil War

Now, if they had just read my blog, they could have known this as early as last May.

Now this is news

Rep. Stark Applauded for Atheist Outlook
Wow, a self-identified atheist in Congress! It really says something about the power of religion in America when you have members of Congress coming out as gay or lesbian before you have one coming out as an atheist.

Actually, that's not quite accurate. It's not the power of religion, it's their fear of that power, that has kept atheist politicians in the closet. Politicians try not to alienate any potential voter, so there is a big incentive for them not to disclose their (non)beliefs.

So, bravo, Rep. Stark. God bless you.


Strike that.

Why is this news?

Pope Reaffirms Traditional Views
This is like saying "Sun Rises in the East." If it rose some place else, it would be news. Doing the expected is not news--especially to people who who have little interest in what the subject of the headline does in the first place.
