Dodger Tees is closing

DT WordPress headerDue to a lack of interest, I will be closing my Dodger Tees store on Spreadshirt on Tuesday, 1 May. Unfortunately, I have neither the time nor the resources to market the store properly, and while I have several ideas for new products, I don’t have the chops to do them justice, and my budget won’t allow me to farm the job out.

My Wtfuckatash and Cancer Sucks design will continue to be available in the Spreadshirt Marketplace, but my other designs will no longer be available after the 1st of May.

If you’re interested in getting any of my products please order them soon. Any orders placed when I close my shop will still be fulfilled, but after the closing most of my products will no longer be available.

Thank you for your interest and patronage of my Spreadshirt shop.

The numbers, they be changin’

A couple of months ago I got the bad news that while I can squeeze myself into an old pair of jeans, I can no longer fit into my favorite pair of shorts. I thought it was just because I’ve put on so much weight, but the other day I finally realized it’s because I’ve put on too much curves. Yes, my hormone replacement therapy (HRT) has feminized my body enough that I have curves! Yippee!!! Continue reading

Au revoir, WBZ News

When I moved to Boston from New Orleans almost 30 years ago one of the things I had to do was find a local tv station to get my news from. After checking out the options I ended up going with WBZ, the local CBS affiliate. The fact that I watched the news on the CBS affiliate back in New Orleans may have helped, but mostly it was the fact that I liked how WBZ presented the news, both in content and in the anchors and reporters.

But over the last three months or so, I started to become dissatisfied with the WBZ news, mostly because of how many times the news got delayed or flat-out preempted by sporting events on the weekend. Part of it was due to all the coverage of the New England Patriots, a team I’m sick of hearing about in a sport I couldn’t care less about. Yes, WBZ is the official broadcast partner of the Patriots, but while some folks I know refuse to watch the WBZ News because of that fact, I preferred WBZ’s news in spite of it. Continue reading

Success!

You may remember there were problems with my estradiol blood levels before my surgery in October, and to try to increase my estradiol absorption, and my endocrinologist moved me from an insulin syringe to a syringe with a larger, and longer, 23 gauge needle so I could inject it into muscle instead of into fat. (For some odd reason the needle gets bigger as the gauge increases, not the other way around as you’d expect.) There’s just one problem with it, though. The estradiol valerate I’m injecting is so thick it can’t get into the syringe easily through a 23 gauge needle. After looking at several things and consulting with my doctor, his nurse, and my pharmacist, we’ve changed me to an 18 gauge needle, and by Jove, we’ve got it! Continue reading
