gender thoughts 

So I have spent a lot of time this year really thinking about my gender, and how it feels to me, in a way that I never actually have before. And I'm in my 40s, so that's a while!

But a common theme seems to be "I didn't know I was trans until one day when I just opened my eyes". And I started to wonder, "Do I like this because it's also me?"

So in the last, like, year or so, I've met/followed/read/read about a lot of trans people, authors, and characters. And they are all so awesome and I am so happy for them and their success.

I discovered a new webcomic last night, and immediately binged the whole thing, so if ancient Greece, cute webcomics, or (spoiler?) happy trans characters is also your jam, check out

Walked upstairs to find my wife and son doing separate videoconferences in the same room.

She's interviewing someone, and he's cackling with a friend over some photos they are sharing.

Sometimes modern tech is pretty nice.

Airport people watching: I may not be the best dad ever, but I will never ever buy my son a hoodie that says "Virginity Rocks". My goodness, if even I know that's uncool, how uncool must it be?

I am about to get on an airplane for the first time in a year and a half.

Unfortunately, it's not for a fun reason: my youngest aunt was diagnosed with cancer and I want to see her before it's too late.

So I keep alternating between being freaked out about her, and about the plane.

Gonna be a long weekend.

My kids just got the first dose of vaccine.

I knew it'd feel good, buy I didn't expect this much relief. Three weeks to dose two, and then I'll feel much less worried about everything.

I just finished aikido practice in the park, now I am sitting with my plate of food and water waiting the 10 more minutes for the sun to set.

Fasting itself isn't hard, but waiting while I can smell my food? Oh my, my stomach is suddenly growling.

Just woke up from a dream where I visited a new restaurant. Their food was so delicious, they refused to serve anyone without a doctor's note saying that they could handle the shock.

Of course, I was visiting from out of town, and didn't have a note, so I was trying to convince them to call and ask. it wasn't going well when I woke.

It is rough baking cookies during Ramadan: I can't eat any cookie dough!

That's why I stuck some in a plastic bag in the fridge to enjoy after sunset (and after my kids are in bed). 😁

Time for another biased poll.

Do you know what CC and BCC stand for in eMail without having to look it up?

I would appreciate it if you boosted this toot. :-)

Confidential to, like, one person: argh autocorrect, sorry.

Today is my birthday and my family made my dreams come true.

I now have a stand mixer.

Ramadan starts next week, so today is my last coffee for a while.

I am savoring it. Except if I savor too slowly it'll get cold.

Trans friends: Today, and every day, know that I see you and I value you and I will do what I can to support you. Whether you're out to me or not, I only want for you to be safe and happy.

Good news! My wife and I were vaccinated yesterday (the single-dose version, too, so we're done).

Bad news: I am fine but my wife is currently under the covers in bed with a low grade fever, joint aches, and chills, so, uh, watch those side effects, folks.
