Well, for the first time ever I’m writing on a PC! This is simply due to a decision to use my Acorn to replicate some data, which is something it does singletaskingly, which means that I’m unable to use it as a HTML editing thing.

So, I’m doing plain text on here, and I’ll ship it across in a few minutes…still, let’s evaluate shall we…

I’ve had a shopping accident, finally bought my parents combined Xmas/Birthday/Birthday/Mothers day/Fathers Day/New Year present, gained a computer and started on a kind of course of hormones :-)

The computer is a poor BBC Master which was to be disposed of by my school….if anyone can promise it a good home give me a shout; I think it’s in reasonable condition (although the lettering on the keyboard is rather worn), and it doesn’t have any leads with it.

The …present is something I’ve been planning for a while, the shopping accident is from think geek http://www.thinkgeek.com/, indeed it’s kinda two shopping accidents – one is a Geek Girl tee-shirt, which I thought was kind of cool, and the other is some Programmers Fridgemagents…. which though immeasurably uncool is quite fun.

The hormones, well, where to start. From recently recieved advice I’ve heard that my LHA (Local Health Authority) aren’t paying much towards TS treatment (i.e. nothing towards surgery and getting hormones isn’t going to be easy)….this isn’t the greatest news – so I’ve started on some herbal hormones, and a low dose of asprin to keep thrombosis risks down.

This is not something I undertake lightly (although you might think I do from the huge grin on my face every time I think about it…..It’s actually simply a low dose of estrogenic compounds (Dong Quai, 1000mg per day (thank’s Bj)). So hopefully we’ll know if it’s the right course of action by how my body takes to it….

Next up, I’m going to meet some of my friends this weekend….I’m not sure how many yet, but there we go…One of my freinds from Uni is having a party, the situation is…he’s going to meet me before hand, and then we’ll see how things go from there…..so I’m a bit nervous….

Apart from that, there’s another house to look at on Saturday….so if you’re house hunting in Reading at the moment, STOP!

Yes, so hopefully soon I’ll have a house, a car, a job and a life….

Okay….that’s all for today (I’ll keep you updated on the hormones)..




Kate's allegedly a human (although increasingly right-wing bigots would say otherwise). She's definitely not a vampire, despite what some other people claim. She's also mostly built out of spite and overcoming oppositional-sexism, racism, and other random bullshit. So she's either a human or a lizard in disguise sent to destroy all of humanity. Either way, she's here to reassure that it's all fine.
