Raining Me In

One of the things about being a relativly newly out-and-about tranny is that you get to do a lot of 'firsts'. First time out on your own, first club, first time on public transport, first wolf-whistle* - that sort of thing.

Back in October I drove by myself as Rachel for the first time. It was the evening of the Surrey Swans' Goth Night, and Mrs Rachel couldn't come along with me as my daughter had to be collected from a party. So I drove from Staines to Ash and back by myself; not a considerable journey (a 40 mile round-trip) but, at the time, quite an adventure. Needless to say I was a little nervous as I started my journey and hit the main roads. At which point, of course, the heavens opened and it poured with rain - really poured, turning an already nervous driving experience into, well, a more nervous one. But I survived.

Fast forward to last night and another Surrey Swans meeting. I have a pair of flats I use for driving, but I'd put on the high-heel boots I wanted to wear for the meeting and foolishly decided that it wasn't worth taking them off. They were comfy, and the heels aren't too excessive and I was happy I could drive in them if I took it carefully. And Rachel is, if nothing else, a much less aggressive driver than Mr X. So off I went - my first time driving in heels. I was nervous, but coped well, and soon got into the swing of it.

Halfway into the journey, the heavens opened and it poured with rain ...

Secret IDs

On another forum (unrelated to trannying) I was challenged to take the 'Which Super-Villain Are you?' quiz. The results were illuminating:

Your results:
You are Poison Ivy

You would go to almost any length for the protection of the environment including manipulation and elimination.

Poison Ivy
Dark Phoenix
Mr. Freeze
The Joker
Dr. Doom
Lex Luthor
Green Goblin

The top three were all female, and one of those spends a lot of time pretending to be other people (although far more convincingly than I manage the one extra role in my life) . Of the two blokes that made it into the top five one of them wears rather too much makeup. It's strange how these things work out.

(On an unrelated note, I have no idea what those enormous gaps in the post are all about. They seem to defy any attempt on my part to eliminate them; they aren't there in the HTML. Probably something to do with that table of results or something.)

Cloverfield - A Tranny Perspective

Mrs Rachel and I went to see 'Cloverfield' this afternoon whilst the children were out of our hair. This is my review. Contains spoilers.

Beth's gold sequined party dress was fab; I was quite disappointed that it didn't feature later in the film. Lily's frock was OK as well, as was her ability to run around New York in those gold high-heels. No other outfits caught my eye. There was a monster. It attacked New York. The film was quite exciting. We liked it.
