For the record

I just want to state that I ordered Jimmy Johns for lunch and when I added the pickle, I didn’t know it was going to be one of those BIG pickles. When it came, my eyes were as big as saucers. I know it’s a pregnancy cliche but goddam, that was a delicious pickle!

Political views on Thursday

Wow: almost 11 AM and I am just now getting around to my first post. This is a sign that I have actually been busy. For one, the copy machine upstairs – which is mainly for faculty use – is out of commission. This means that they come in droves – the professors – and try to use my machine which, although seemingly simpler in technology, confuses the hell out of them. It’s sort of funny actually, to see them boggle at its ease of use. In all actuality, I am worried that this machine too will fail and the entire department will be SOL. Oh well!

So check this out: someone I know (I have to be discrete just because) just told me about a guy she has known forever whom she was going to meet up with next week. Let’s call him Mike. He responded to her email saying that he was no longer Mike but rather, Michelle. The person telling the story was obviously in shock but not upset. She’s actually interested to meet him as Michelle but it definitely prompted this question: as for this guy’s wife… is she now considered living in a same sex marriage and how does this cross lines with state regulations on the subject? I mean, they were married as man and woman but in four weeks, this guy will be physically altered to be all woman. I wonder how often this sort of thing happens and how states will deal with it. They live in Illinois if it makes a difference.

Feel free to discuss!

P.S. I was going to title this post “Hot transvestite action” but I’d get too many porn surfers on here!
