Moving day

Wednesday, March 30th, 2005

CBC left for Long Island today. We talked on the phone for over 3½ hours last night, well past my bedtime. Last night wasn’t the only long, late-night phone session this week either. Jesus that girl can talk. Headsets, I tell you, are a godsend. In fact, halfway through last night, when it appeard it […]

Easter Monday

Monday, March 28th, 2005

Shit hits the fan, officially, starting this week. For the first time in my life, I’ve put my personal needs ahead of business ones and have spent most of the past month sorting things out with myself and with CBC. I am just tickled with the way I’ve been able to manage my feelings, work […]

Good Friday

Friday, March 25th, 2005

Just a quick note to say it’s all good between my ears and with CBC. No major issues, no minor issues. I have a longer entry in progress to fill in the details of how adjustments are happening in my head. But I’m very busy right now and it may be a while before I […]

Transgender 101

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2005

[Note: This is still unfinished, but I have to post what I’ve got to provide some context for the Wednesday March 30th entry. Posting this on the 30th, but backdating it so it’s in the right place in the timeline.] Today I met with Pam, former Interim Executive Director of the GAGV, facilitator for the […]

It’s official

Sunday, March 20th, 2005

Almost forgot. I am taking a vacation in Toronto to coincide with AA’s 2005 International Convention. With any luck, the stupid ferry will be running again by then. I’ll be arriving a day early on Wednesday June 29 and staying through to Tuesday July 5. Stalker alert: I’ll be staying at Dundonald House between Church […]

Just tired of it all is all…

Sunday, March 20th, 2005

Funny how when I want to cry it just won’t come. Anyway, after a nice, long, nearly comatose sleep last night, I feel better. I feel a bit foolish for seeming ungrateful to have found a friend in CBC. All whining about it not progressing beyond that aside, I am grateful. Willie’s advice, or commentary […]

Name change

Sunday, March 20th, 2005

From here on in, Web-Boy will be known as Cute Blonde Chick, or CBC for short. CBC’s eyes lit with delight when I said, “Wait. I have a present for you,” when we parked at the café before the meeting tonight. “Don’t get used to this sort of treatment,” I continued while fishing around in […]

The ultimate irony

Thursday, March 17th, 2005

I may not stop laughing for a week. The Universe, God, well and truly has a sense of humor. And irony. See, my long-term ex, Vince, well, his current partner is Toni, formerly Tony, a male-to-female transgendered person. So is Web-Boy… er, Web-Girl… er, well I’m still a little confused here. Still has the male […]

Coming to

Wednesday, March 16th, 2005

We came. We came to. We came to believe. In the rooms, this succinctly describes the first three steps. Sometime during the day yesterday, I came to—with regard to Web-boy. Lemme ‘splain… Since our phone call 10 days ago when Web-boy told me, “I’m making some changes in my life that I wanna tell you […]

Taking advice

Monday, March 14th, 2005

Writing all that out yesterday got it off my chest enough that I could begin to think a little more clearly. I first thought of some advice I gave to sponsee earlier in the week. He’s got this obsession over a guy who, even he agrees, he should be running away from screaming. I told […]
