I hope it all goes well and the knifes are suitably sharp.

ha ha..a big chopper

Thanks for the chopper based sentiment :)
-and the card!

All went well with the surgery...apart from nearly bleeding to death when some labial stitches popped when i got home,a lump of necrotic flesh going black,rotting and dropping off(hmm..nice)and the bleeding down my leg in the shower incoporating the "I am Sissy Spacek" borderline gangrene delerium of the infected wound.-I had an extra 8 days of being fingered by pretty nurses at the QMC.-So I must'nt grumble :)

The bruising and swelling have nearly gone down,most of the stitches have dropped out,and all my bits are working as they should do...
Job done.

Re: ha ha..a big chopper

Yeah this entry would have been better if I'd been more organised and posted it before you went into hospital.

Glad to hear it all went ok, apart from the stitches and late 1970 horror film episodes,

How is everything with all this heat (It hot enough here for my Pc to have throw abit of a strop and refused to work)?

heat etc..

I had no interweb access anyway.
I've popped into work to use the machines here.
- it seems the annoying heat was'nt a factor until Ben turned up to take back the air conditioning units that he left here when he was sacked way back in January.
its not my problem,(read:moan at the boss that it's too hot)
until I get back here at the end of July.

a few more weeks sat on my arse picking the odd stitch out of my fanny and watching QVC/UKTV history/BBC3 etc will no doubt send me stir crazy enough to want to come back here.(and do some work?)

Not that watching BBC3 is a bad thing,i've caught up on the Dr Who episodes I've missed in hospital.

Re: heat etc..

Well given how the weather (at least here) seem to have decided it Autumn already by the time you get back it may not be a problem.

Can't fault watching Dr Who, the last one at the weekend was great, some good acting and very funny lines mixed in with the action.

Also today I discovered CBBC is showing Pinky and the Brain at 9:10 every weekday, I watched (most, damn you Freeview PVR cutting off the last five minutes) of today one, still very funny, lots of bit that kids just would not get.

Re: heat etc..

I blame global warming - its too damn hot today.
-its hot enough to melt lead in the casting room :)

Freeview is great for sad stuff:
UFO,The Avengers,Space 1999 and Sky3 are showing the new Battlestar Galactica.

As I'm nearly healed up I may come back to work next week.
-not that I feel guilty about being off "ill" for 7 weeks.
....or was it 8 weeks?

Re: heat etc..

Wow, scary about the lead.

and I totally agree about freeview, lots of good stuff, ITV 4 just seems to be a total cult TV channel, and film four has just started, so hopefully some cool films will be on soon.

Going back to work is going to be a big shock, I know I find it bad enough after being away for a week or two.

Lead is scary..and so is the heat

At work we stare at the elemental table for fun!
It melts at 327.5 Centigrade.
It's got too many proton's for my liking.
Mr C's melting pots are running at 331 and 340 Centigrade.
Making my blister packing machine seem rather cool at 150 Centigrade.

The worst shock about being back at work is I don't have any weed to smoke here until tommorrow.

Good to have film four,even though I thought "lost in translation" last night was a big slow- Scarlet wots her name had a nice pink wig!

How's it going with Charing Cross?
Watch out for 'em.
My mate Jenna waited 18 months for an appointment with them only to find out that they had never recieved her paperwork!
She ended up at Dr Reid's (I hear he may be retiring soon) before she came up to Nottingham-and became a Stonebridge patient.
They seem to work under the same system as Stonebridge.
-although they don't have Dr Ferguson
(which may be a good thing?)
If you play ball with them they should be OK.
There are no loopholes or shortcuts.
Its hard work getting to the end point.

I've nothing to prove to the shrinks anymore.
-its game over as far as i'm concerned with the whole "transgendered/transsexuality" thing.
-it's a redundant word to me now.-i'm female,full stop.
as Jenna once said to me:
"there is no such thing as a post-op transsexual"
But thats the whole point.

Re:"lost in translation"

I gave up after about 20 minutes, and watched some 'Ask a Ninja', it was about a 50/50 in the office between liking it or thinking it was boring. I'll give it another go when it repeated.

Oh and talking of weed have you been watching Weeds on Sky Three? I hear it s very funny but I've not got round to watching it yet.

re: Charing Cross
Well I phone up the shrink here to see if that side of things had happened, and they have done their bit, but still nothing from CX. I got another appointment in Bristol on the 18th September, so I'll ask again and see what happening.

In a way its not holding me up, face zapping is nearly done just some dark bits on my top lip and around my month. I'm see someone at the laser place in a few weeks about my birthmark to see what they can do about that. I've started trying to sort out my voice which is the biggest thing I want to have more sorted before going fulltime. So I want the hormones at somepoint but they are not stopping me getting on with the rest of my life. When I have everything else done, if CX are still being too slow I can just go private at that point, or at least thats the current plan.

Re: Dr Reid
He stopped seeing new patients late last year, and I think stopped all together around march time. Dr Curtis took over. Same sort of approach by all accounts.

Re: "there is no such thing as a post-op transsexual"
Yeah, it all about getting to that end point, whichever is the right one for you and then getting on with your life. Glad you got to your endpoint.

Oh nearly forgot, I had said to my mother that we were going to meet up before my holiday in France, and then that we were not as you had your operation. So now she keep asking if you are alright (I think partly because she share the same first name as you).

Re: "lost in translation"

Weeds is very good I think:like a darker desperate housewives with buds everywhere.

As long as things are going on track with your shrink and Charing Cross thats cool.
-anyway it sounds like you've got a plan 'B' if they mess you about.

Oh I did'nt know your mum was a Susan.
Next time she asks tell her i've never felt better.

Re: Weeds

I'll have to get around to watching it, I've recorded them on my pvr but just not got around to watching them yet.

Will do.

Re: a darker desperate housewives

I got around to watching them today, very good.
I totally see what you mean about being a darker desperate housewives, one thing that got me was the amount of swearing, you just don't expect that in the US show.

Stunt doubles in "Weeds"

From a pot smokers point of view its interesting how real the bud looks.
Though in real life I don't think anyone would easily give up their car as collateral for just an ounce..
A desperate (for a spliff) housewife indeed.

Re: car as collateral

Yeah that did seem a little steep, I mean a Range Rover, which cost god only know $1,000, but I guess its one of those script writer things that get done to advance the plot that would never happen in real life.

We were talking about similar things in 24 at the office this week, how a lot of the computer stuff makes sense but when needed the writers dump reality and just come up with any old rubbish to get them out of a plot hole.

All come down to being entertainment I guess, most people would not know the difference anyway.
