Eurovision? raise your eyebrows!

I’ve been experimenting with the scissors, and on what, you may be thinking? The eyebrows again is what. I’ve let the lower edges down a few millimeters, and although it’s not obvious, Jay has stopped whingeing about plucking them; but with scissors, you can do some major work. With scissors, it’s not about reshaping, it’s more about mass reduction. Jay can’t stand Dennis Healey style growths, so scissors seem to be acceptable, where plucking isn’t. The minor problem with scissors, is that hair growth is immediately apparent, so you have to do repeat treatments often. I guess, as it’s more acceptable to the girlie police, then it’s not exactly onerous.

I do like reading every one’s blogs, as you know, and I am in awe of all you girls who go out and be en femme for real, and meet up with your friends for real too. My Bob Blog follows the stuff family can read about, and life is pretty good, and we, Jay and I and the family, have a lot of fun. It would be so nice to do all that family stuff en femme though.

This weekend we are having a Eurovision party; the bread snappers are coming home with their partners; we’ll have score cards; compare winners; have some wine and crisps and dips and things; have a good laugh at the lyrics and the voting, and everything. I’ve heard it said that the contest doesn’t matter, but if that’s so, why whinge about the tactical scoring? It’s a super fun evening the way we play it, and we do it every year. Just having the family get-together makes it worth it anyway. The rest of the weekend will be chatting, competitions on the Wii; (I still haven’t got back to the top of all the leader boards since our last family meet); go for walks along the beach; have a slap up Sunday roast lunch – Jay is such a gorgeous cook; listen to the latest music everyone has brought, and basically end up knackered by the time everyone leaves. Yes, Bob does have a lot fun, which is just as well really – LoL

Number 1 son is an iMac aficionado, and I don’t think he has read my Bob Blog, (boo – hiss), or he would be telling me how to use it already. He’ll have a bit of surprise when he comes on Friday – and I need some ‘how to do it’ bits sorting out too – LoL.


Feminine and Stats.

Au Revoir?
What a shame; I popped on the net to read your blogs, and when I got to Helen’s – no blog. No. I haven’t sent her an email, as I think that when someone cuts a link, then they obviously have their reasons, and I don’t want to be nuisance. I, and others no doubt, are worrying that things have gone badly wrong, but it could be as she mentioned in one of her last blogs, that she didn’t think it fitted in with her life (or something similar). I thoroughly enjoyed her blogs, as I enjoy all of yours too. If you pop on to the net and read this Helen, I hope you and your lovely wife are ok, and I wish you all the best.

Feminine days.
I’ve been going through one of those periods where I am very comfortable with my femininity, and for some reason, haven’t needed to crossdress, or be outwardly girlie. I’m still Anna in my head, but having a body completely at odds with my mental images hasn’t mattered. I got dressed last week for the first time for AGES – and it was glorious; a bit of make-up, my new wig, and some girlie style spectacles completed the ensemble. I took some photos with the camera built into the iMac (I still can’t get it to interact with my router), and the picture is back to front. Why? This weekend though, I’m back under-dressing. Being OK with Bob won’t last of course; next week, next month, I’ll be fed up again with being Bob on the outside all the time. I have been up here, in the hobby room, wearing my wig, and I suppose that’s pretty apt in a way; my head all girlie, and the body in Bob’s clothes. LoL. My dream is still to be able to dress girlie all the time, and do all those feminine things around the house, with proper clothes on.

Flickr Stats.
I’m hooked on stats. When we came back from the Scottish holiday, I only had 50 or so spare photo slots on Flickr left, and of course, I stuck 60 odd new photos on. Not wanting to take any off, I bought a Pro account, so I could display more than the 200 freebie limit – and – it comes with stats. I’m fascinated by which pics attract the most attention; all the various viewing figures, how many visits a day, and stuff. When I first got it, I kept popping on to see what was happening, umpteen times a day. The novelty has worn off a bit, plus, I decided to be sensible, and just check it out once a day. I’d just love to have loads of pics for Anna’s site too, but I don’t want to be boring. I’ll have to put some of my latest photos on though, now they are so easy to take. Hmmm, I suppose that means tidying up the hobbies room – LoL.
